Please contact Christina for Bridal Rates based on the details of your wedding!
There are many factors taken into consideration such as travel, early start times, assistant fees, hotel accommodations and stand by rates. Since these do not apply to every bride, Christina likes to personalize each package for each brides needs!
Bridal Preview: Previews run approximately one to one and a half hours and include a detailed consultation, two styles, placing of your veil or headpiece and of course Christina takes photos so that your look will be just as you remembered on your wedding day! Although a preview is not mandatory, it is highly advised unless the bride is out of town until the wedding day. This is to ensure that all are on the same page with your final look so there are no surprises on one of the most important days of your life. Previews are preferably scheduled Monday-Thursday. Please keep in mind previews are rarely done on Fridays or weekends due to the fact Christina is booked with weddings.
Makeup: You may already be aware that both hair and makeup are two VERY specialized areas within the beauty realm. Many hair and makeup artists offer both services to their brides and then farm out the bridal party to less experienced artists or assistants in order to save time and money. This is not a practice Christina believes in. Bridal looks need to remain consistent and cohesive across the board and hiring two separate artists that specialize in their craft allows for that! At this time, Christina has chosen to focus solely on her passion for Hair Styling. She prefers to refer makeup services to her trusted make up artists.
Minimums: Friday through Sunday weddings require a 5 person minimum (excluding flower girls) during high season which is March-October. Christina does not reserve more than one large wedding party per day. This minimum allows her to be dedicated strictly to you and your bridal party should you decide to have "stand by" services for touch ups or if you desire a second look for your Reception. Smaller bridal parties or "just the bride", please contact Christina for more details or questions.
Payments: At this time Christina Irene accepts Cash or Checks for Final Payment however date retainer fees may be made via Paypal or Credit Card. Final payment is due in full upon arrival the day services are to be rendered. Wedding days are meant to be enjoyed by brides and their bridal parties! Christina does not wish to hunt people down for payment! (Yes it's happened and it's terrible!)
Securing Your Wedding Date: In order to secure your wedding date a signed contract along with a non-refundable $100 date retainer fee is required. Once these items are received, your date is then secured.
