So you're getting married!

Engagement season is upon us and its time to start planning your wedding. So dust off your “Dream Wedding” Pinterest board and lets start talking!

I often get emails from eager brides asking 1. if i’m available for their date and 2. how much it costs to work with Gather. Though these are important questions, here are some things to consider when choosing your hair and makeup team.

  1. Do you want hair AND makeup for your big day? If so, hiring a team that does both ensures a smooth wedding day. We work together during the trial and for the day of, bringing your full look to life. Also all emails, planning, coordinating about beauty goes through one person who manages the team instead of coordinating with multiple people.

  2. What words would you use to describe your ideal wedding? The best weddings are a perfect reflection of the couple and their personalities. Which is why we like to start things off with a consultation. It’s less about what color eyeshadow you want to wear and more about what random things we have in common, or how much we laugh over croissants and coffee.

  3. Do a trial run. As a reminder, we come to you on your wedding day! But before that we have a private suite where we do your hair and makeup, take pictures, and come up with a game plan for your big day. A trial run is important for you to see the look come together and for us to gain a better understanding of the canvas we are working on.

All in all, we would love to grab some coffee and see if we’d be the right fit for your big day. First, check out our work under the ‘Brides’ tab. Then fill at the form on the bottom of the page and we’ll be in touch soon.
