As you plan the most important day of your life, don’t overlook the importance of doing a run through on your hair and makeup. While this seems like a waste of time, you don’t want to be surprised with a “Bozo the clown” look right before you walk down the aisle. Especially if you’ve never used the makeup artist before, ask for a practice appointment. If you don’t like the first look, make suggestions and have her try again until you get it right. Some brides choose to do this beauty rehearsal on the day of their wedding portraits to avoid extra expense.
