YOUR TRIAL

 

Trials take place in our beautiful space in The Boutique - Bridal Cooperative in Fulham, SW London.  The Boutique is stocked with beautiful products from local, independent suppliers and all tailored towards weddings so plenty to browse while you're here! The Boutique is co-owned by Tori and Victoria Millesime who creates stunning hair accessories for you to try during your trial if you are unsure of what accessories to go for and need some inspiration.  We also have a full range on veils available to order through The Boutique or to try during your trial to get the full effect!  

Your chosen artist will welcome you to The Boutique for a 2-3hour session where we will go through your ideas, any concerns you have and then try out your look for the day.  We suggest coming with a preferred style in mind as trying multiple hairstyles is not only challenging to keep re-styling your hair but also often leaves you with too many options! If the first style we try isn't for you we will happily try something else.

 

 

We would love for you to invite your friends and family to your trial to help you decide but due to space we have to ask that you just bring one guest for the duration of your trial - if everyone else wants to pop in at the end to see the finished product then please do ask them along!  We will help you in taking plenty of images both for our records for the day and for you to show the all important mothers/bridesmaids to get their seal of approval.  

 

I wrote an article for So You're Getting Married on getting the most out of your trial - you can read that article here.

 

 

To prepare yourself for the trial we recommend you come wearing your everyday makeup with your hair clean and dry – we’ll let you know if you need to wash it on the wedding day for a blow dry.  It is really helpful if you collect a number of pictures prior to the day of both things you do and don’t like so we can get a feel for the style you are going for. It is also helpful to see pictures of yourself when you have like your hair or makeup so we can see what makes you feel comfortable.
