Bridal Previews at Blushed Bridal
Booking your Bridal Preview is going to allow you to bring your wedding day vision to life, this will allow you to really see how the final look will come together. We do recommend waiting until you have your venue, wedding date, theme and dress picked out. Having these things will allow you to really bring your bridal beauty vision to life. Instead of wasting time and money on doing multiple bridal previews with multiple artists, it’s best to do your research beforehand and make sure the artists you go with are experts in bridal beauty.
Bridal Previews are booked in 1 to 2 months prior to your wedding date and are only available to our booked brides only. If you are looking for a bridal preview prior to securing your date, you can book in a bridal makeup and hairstyle package. For anyone else in the bridal party looking to secure their bridal beauty look prior to the wedding, they can book it as a bridal party package.
Our Bridal Previews are exclusive to our booked bride only and there are things that you can do to prepare beforehand for your bridal preview appointment. As the bride, you will want to ensure that your skin and hair are prepared properly. We suggest preparing your skin and hair for your bridal preview as well as the wedding day ASAP.
Choosing your Bridal Beauty Look
When choosing your bridal beauty look for your wedding day always remember that choosing photos that resemble yourself is the most ideal. Also, remembering that a lot of photos are photoshopped, edited and models. Remember that not all hair density is the same as photos and adding hair extensions can create a more full look for your hairstyle.
Check out bridal makeup and hair photos to identify what bridal beauty look would be the best fit for you and your wedding day.
If you want your skin to be flawless for your bridal makeup (bridal preview and wedding day) you must have a daily AM & PM skincare routine that is fit for your skin type and skin care needs. Also, drinking your daily recommended water intake, your vitamins and minerals and eating a balanced diet can help with improving your skin.
Everything you need to prep for your Bridal Preview appointment.
Do you know your skin type? Take the skin care quiz to help identify your skin type and to better assist you in finding the right skin care routine that is best fit for you and your skincare needs.
Are you looking for the perfect skin care for yourself? We use all organic luxury skin care for all of our bridal clients.
Bridal Beauty Plan
We have created the Bridal Beauty Plan EBOOK for all of our brides & bridal parties. This guide gives you everything you would need to help prepare for your wedding day beauty and your bridal preview appointment.
Use this ebook to plan accordingly based on your needs and beauty goals. You can customize your bridal beauty plan based on what you would like to focus on, if that is your skin and facials, changing your hair or getting hair extensions or even working out.
This ebook helps navigate you through all bridal beauty services, treatments, preparation for the wedding day, finding your bridal beauty team and everything in between. With a detailed bridal beauty guide with everything from 12 months up to the day of the wedding, we have created everything you will need to prepare yourself for your big day.
Preparing for your Bridal Preview
Preparing for your Bridal Preview is simple, all brides must fill out their Bridal Information Forms prior to the Bridal Preview appointment. All bridal info forms can be edited at any time from your link. If you haven’t already filled out your bridal info forms please do that immediately.
Bride’s Information Forms
The Bridal Information Forms will house all of your bridal information, along with your inspiration photos for makeup and hair.
When deciding on your bridal beauty look, it is best to search for bridal makeup and hair photos for inspiration.
Create a Bridal Beauty - Wedding Pinterest Board for all your Bridal Beauty Inspirations.
The Bridal Beauty Team
The Bridal Beauty Team was created to exclusively offer bridal beauty services for weddings. The Bridal Beauty Team consists of 6 bridal artists and is always growing to accommodate all of our brides and weddings.
When your Bridal Preview is booked in with your bridal artists, that will be the same artists doing your bridal makeup and hair on the wedding day. We might have other bridal artists attend your wedding to assist with the bridal party to help speed things up on the wedding day. This will all depend on how many individuals, the number of services booked and the timeline we have to complete everyone on the big day.
When you are deciding on a bridal beauty look for your wedding day, it is always ideal to view your bridal beauty artist’s bridal portfolio. Viewing your bridal beauty teams work will give you a better idea of the bridal look you are going for. You can choose photos of the artist’s work for inspiration photos, as well as choosing various bridal makeup and hair photos from Pinterest or Google.

Be picture ready, we always take a before photo (after the facial) this allows us to get a better idea of facial symmetry and any color correcting we must do in person. We then always take the after photos and videos to share inside the wedding day plan. This way we are aware of exactly what we are doing for makeup and hair for the wedding day.
Bridal Preview appointments typically run anywhere from 2 to 3 hours in length, depending on if it is makeup and hair or one or the other. As well as the consultation, photos, adjustments and recording all information in the wedding day plan.
Bring all hair extensions and bridal hair accessories to your bridal preview.
The Bridal Suite
All Bridal Previews are held at The Bridal Suite, which is located inside of Kristina’s townhouse. When the pandemic started, we decided the best move for Blushed was to create a space within my home for our bridal clients, one that we could customize for our brides needs and create a space to offer for the wedding day as well.
The Bridal Suite is a fully renovated beauty studio for bridal clients. The Bridal Suite was specifically designed for our bridal beauty appointments as well as aesthetics services. With multiple chairs to work with we can offer the bridal suite to book for your wedding day with your bridal party. If you are looking for that special ‘Getting Ready Location’ for your big day, inquire with the bridal beauty coordinator to reserve the bridal suite for your wedding day.
The Bridal Suite Location
1634 Fielding Street Unit 29
Bridal Preview Appointment
Bridal Previews begin with the bridal information forms. This is where we begin to get your information for your bridal beauty look.
We input all information into our wedding day plans.
Bridal Previews start with a full bridal beauty consultation and discussion on your bridal beauty vision and your wedding day.
We will discuss your bridal makeup and hair inspiration photos, what you like vs dislike for makeup and hair.
We will record everything into the wedding day plan.
Then we begin with your facial and skin prep. Everything you do at home for skincare must be shared with your MUA.
We then start with your makeup, we also want to know if you wear makeup daily and what you use for makeup.
Creating your ideal makeup look with collaboration of the bride throughout the whole process.
All makeup used is recorded inside the wedding day plan.
Then your hairstyle is created based on hairstyle photos and what you would like for your hairstyle.
If you have hair extensions make sure to bring them to your bridal preview appointment. They will be curled and added into your hairstyle while it is being created.
Once your makeup and hair is completed, we take some pictures and videos to look at.
Then we will step out of the room for you to really check it all out, take photos and to see what you would like to be adjusted.
We will check out our photos, talk about what you want adjusted and we will work on the adjustments right away.
Once your adjustments are completed we then take more photos and record everything inside of the wedding day plan.
Then we will show you how to touch up your makeup and hair and how to remove it all at the end of the night.
We will then advise you of doing your makeup and hair checks and homework.
You must watch your makeup and hair all evening, we want to be aware of all adjustments that would need to be made for the wedding day. This could be changing different products or a change in the prep we do for the wedding day.
Then 24 hours after your Bridal Preview appointment we will send out a Bridal Preview Follow Up Email. This is where you can share any adjustments that need to be made or any changes you would like done for the wedding date.
Brides that are Located out of town
For brides that are booking from out of town, I know that it can be difficult to book a bridal preview. If your wedding will be in Sudbury or the surrounding areas, we can make arrangements to book your bridal preview when you will be in town. We always make accommodations for our brides and can work within your schedule.
For brides that have booked their wedding with us that the wedding is out of town (Sudbury) we can make accommodations to come into the bridal suite at any time for your bridal preview.
For brides who are out of town (Sudbury) and are unable to do a bridal preview at the bridal suite location, we can accommodate travel for the artists for your bridal preview. There will be a travel fee included in the pricing for all on location services, including the bridal previews.
Virtual Bridal Consultations
For brides who are unable to do a bridal preview, we require the bride to have a virtual bridal consultation.
We will have the brides fill out their bridal information forms and book a virtual call with The Bridal Beauty Coordinator and the artists to prepare for the wedding day.
We will go over everything required by the bride to prepare the skin and hair prior to the wedding, figure out the best bridal beauty look based off of inspiration photos and discuss the wedding day plan.
It is extremely important to be prepared for the wedding day services and if we can not do a bridal preview, we must complete the virtual bridal consultation prior to the wedding day.
Bridal Party Makeup & Hair
We do not offer bridal previews for the bridal party receiving bridal beauty services for the wedding day.
However, if anyone in the bridal party is looking for a bridal preview prior to the wedding day, we can offer them to book a bridal party package as their bridal preview.
This way they can see their bridal makeup and hair by their bridal artists, to see if they would like it or to make any changes for the wedding day.
It is not treated as a bridal preview appointment with the full consultation and adjustments at the end as the bridal previews are exclusive to our brides only.
If anyone in the bridal party is looking to have their bridal makeup and hair done prior to the wedding day, they can book the bridal party package when we have availability.
Please ensure everyone in the bridal party receiving wedding day services has completed their Bridal Party Info Forms prior to any appointments.
Bridal Party Information Forms & Bridal Contract:
Wedding Day Plans
Every bride and wedding receives a complimentary WEDDING DAY PLAN and timeline. All of the information from the information forms, bridal preview appointments, virtual bridal consultations and all photos are used to create each wedding day plan.
All wedding day plans are sent out upon booking and will be completed as information forms are received and during the bridal preview appointments.
The timeline inside the wedding day plan contains the end time given when the bride booked, then the start time is determined based on how long it will take to complete everyone for services along with the booked number of artists for the wedding day. The order of names can be adjusted based on anyone needing to get done first, brides will be placed in the middle of the timeline and younger children will always be last.
The timeframe for each service is determined by The Bridal Beauty Coordinator based on the artists for services. The timeframe for each service can not be adjusted by the clients.
For any questions regarding all information above and to book in your bridal preview contact us via email for all questions and inquiries.
