The Q: Is there a major benefit to getting my hair and makeup done at a salon vs. having someone come to where I'm getting ready? I can save a lot of money by going to a salon but I'm wondering if there are major pros to having them come to you.
The A: If you set budget aside, I would say yes there are major benefits to having someone come to you. First, you eliminate traffic/ delays if that is a factor where you live. The most stressful part about the early portion of wedding days is keeping things on schedule and moving around always adds in time. Additionally you should probably think about season. In summer, with humidity and rain and such, it's sometimes better to keep inside for as long as possible. So in terms of time and comfort, it's a bit easier and often more relaxing. It's usually pricier for a reason! But don't fret. If you opt to head to the salon, bring bagels and coffee and make a morning of it! You'll have as good of a time anywhere you go on your wedding day. What are other people doing? Hair on site or heading out to the salon?
