WHAT DOES THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

Hi there! Choosing your vendors for your wedding can be overwhelming. Here's what the process to hiring me as your makeup artist typically will look like:

  • Inquire using the inquiry form here. Once this is done, you can expect an email back within 48 hours with a customized estimate for your special day!

  • Once you accept the estimate and decide you are ready to book, a paid 30% retainer and signed contract are required. *The bridal trial is a separate service from the wedding day total and contract.

  • Congratulations! You are booked with Emmalee Mims Artistry! What now?

  • Bridal trials are optional but extremely recommended. I will reach out 3-4 months before your wedding date to schedule a bridal makeup trial, and of course I am available anytime in between to answer any and all of your questions.

  • Once your trial is done, we will go over timelines and the week before your wedding you can expect a getting ready timeline and skin prep sheet to share with your bridal party. This can be fine-tuned with your wedding coordinator/planner and your photographer.

  • Cheers! It's wedding day! Now that all the planning and coordinating is done- sit back, drink some champagne, and get glammed by Emmalee Mims Artistry!

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?

I require a 30% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract to hold your appointment(s).

WHAT IS A BRIDAL TRIAL? IS IT NECESSARY? IS IT A PART OF MY CONTRACT?

Bridal trials, also known as bridal previews, are optional but in my opinion, highly recommended- I would personally say they are necessary. This is where we customize and tailor a makeup look specifically to you and go over skin prep and concerns so that the morning of your wedding all you have to do is sit back and get pampered without worrying about tweaking your makeup, if you will like lashes or not, etc. Bridal trials essentially give a blue print to follow for your day-of makeup.
It is not a part of your contract or included in your Wedding Day Makeup invoice. A bridal trial is a separate service and invoice. Bridal trials can be done before booking your wedding with me however it is important to note that Emmalee Mims Artistry does not hold dates or appointments without a signed contract and paid 30% retainer. I recommend having your trial done after you book, 1-3 months before your wedding date.
