We consider it such an honour to play a part in one of the most defining days of your life – your wedding . We pride ourselves in taking the Plush experience to a whole new level when it comes to hosting you and your bridal party by making the salon your private space for the morning. We have options to include catering for a light breakfast and champagne and, upon request, you can book a private space in the salon for your makeup artist to join you and your party.
We do generally prefer to take care of our bridal parties in the salon as we believe we can provide a more luxurious service, however, if your wedding is set to be on location, we can arrange to bring the magic to you and set up a pop up salon at your home, hotel suite or Air B&B. Whatever your decision may be, we will work in close consultation with your makeup artist, photographer and wedding planner to ensure the morning runs smoothly and you don’t have a single thing to worry about.
With our bridal parties, we like to allow an hour and a half for each formal style to ensure all of those finer details are spot on. For every bridal party style, it is important that we take time to layer product and prep the hair with heat styling to ensure longevity of hold through the long day ahead and into the evening. We may run through things quicker than planned occasionally which will just leave you with a smoother transition thereafter.
With regard to a start time, we recommend working back from the time of the ceremony. It’s important to consider time required for travel and pausing for a bite to eat before you slip into your dress. We are happy to consult with your photographer about their needs on the day but we often find they like to start capturing shots about an hour beforehand whilst you are getting ready. We can be flexible with our start time if your ceremony is set to be an early one.
We recommend that our brides be taken care of by our most senior stylists due to their extensive experience in the industry and whilst a trial can be arranged ahead of your big day, this is not essential. Our entire styling team are all well equipped with the training and experience to take care of you and your bridesmaid’s formal styling as well as any other guests that you might like to join your party on the day for styling or blowdry services.
If you are joining us in the salon space, we especially like to have the bride enjoy some time out on from all the hype with a relaxing moment in our hair spa room experiencing our shampoo and signature massage service. For timing purposes otherwise (and if you have opted to have your styling done on location), it would be best if we have the bridesmaids come in with the hair washed the day prior. We can however offer the same service in our hair spa room for any guests that are having a blow dry service rather than formal styling.
If you don’t already have a make up artist lined up we can help to source one for you. Particularly for larger groups, we recommend that you have your make up artist come into the salon to work alongside us. We can book our private space for your makeup artist to setup in and take care of each guest. This space can also double as an area for guests to relax and enjoy any catering arranged or a beverage from our in salon menu whilst they are in between hair and make up services.
Whether you are in salon or on location, we will consult with your makeup artist about their required timing with each guest (usually 45 to 60 minutes each) and coordinate a run sheet to ensure the morning runs smoothly and each guest knows where they need to be when and you don’t need to give it a second thought.
IN-SALON CATERING *not currently available due to Covid-19*
If you would like us to make arrangements for catering for your group to enjoy, these options can be tailored specifically to your tastes. Most parties opt for a fruit platter and fresh croissants and a little champagne for breakfast whilst they are being pampered (further details shown under Pricing). We also have our usual complimentary salon menu on offer, which includes a range of teas, barista style coffees, orange juice and still or sparkling water.
CONSULTATION AND TRIAL
If you are interested, we invite you to make an appointment for a Design Consultation. This consultation is an opportunity for us to talk about all the elements of your special day including fabrics, colours, dress style, flowers, accessories as well as any pictures or ideas that you have collected along the way. You may also like to consider booking an appointment for a trial to ensure the desired style is what you had hoped for on the day but this is not a requirement.
It is important to consider the colour and condition of your hair well ahead of your wedding to ensure it is in the best possible shape for those photos that will last a lifetime. We recommend that you have your final colour refresh and cut in the week prior to your wedding to ensure the colour is vibrant and also to allow sufficient time for the hair cuticle to settle after colouring. A regular treatment regime and personalisation of your at home hair care is also recommended to address any areas of concern as your special day gets closer.
