Did you have a hair/makeup trial or did you use your bridal portraits as a trial? I'm trying to decide if it's smart or silly to go in one day before my bridals and have a trial with my hair/makeup artist (for an additional $75). Since I'm out of town, I don't want to make a separate trip for a trial but it seems a little crazy to have a trial the day before. I completely trust my hair/makeup lady, Roseanne Harris, but I just wonder if I would feel more comfortable if I arranged a trial. I've looked at her work and it's fabulous, but I'm particular about my hair/makeup. She did say she would set aside 2 1/2 hours the day of my bridals to make sure it's perfect. I'm going back and forth and in circles! What are your thoughts??
