Shocked by quotes I'm getting
Hi all, I'm at the stage in my planning where I'm trying to sort out someone to do my hair and make- up on my big day, a trial of both, and hair- up for one bridesmaid on the day.
I want someone local to York where I'm getting married to cut down travel expenses and the risk they'll get stuck in traffic and not make it!
I must admit I'm shocked by the prices I'm getting quoted- some as high as £375 for the above! It just seems like an obscene amount of money
A few local salons have quoted me much more reasonable prices like £75/ 100 for hair on the day for both me and my BM and my trial, so would obviously need to book a separate make- up artist which would prob clock in at £100 judging by the suppliers I'm looking at, which sounds a bit more palatable.
Prob is all the local salons advised they don't specifically do 'wedding hair' just 'put ups'.
So, do I compromise on 'quality' or shell out for the extortionate options, but who have copious experience of doing bridal hair and make- up?
I don't want my hair to drop out or go flat half way through the day and I'm worried that's what will happen if I use the local salon
I've searched and searched for suppliers in the area and seem to have exhausted my options. Would any else pay £300 approx. for their H and MU?! Just feels such a large outlay!
