Important Info and Policies for Booking Weddings
We do not hold a wedding date without a booking deposit
The booking deposit must be paid before we will schedule a preview
We book up fast and we book on a first come/first serve basis upon deposit paid
Booking deposit is refundable if you choose to cancel our services before we do a Preview as long as it is at least 6 weeks or 45 days before your event, otherwise the deposit is nonrefundable.
We receive numerous inquiries and book up quickly. Because we turn away other work and we need to reserve the appropriate amount of artists we require a NONREFUNDABLE $160 retainer fee along with a signed contract on or within 3 days (72hours) of the Preview. This retainer fee will be applied to the wedding day services and will serve to secure the artists(s) needed for your date. If this contract is not signed and the retainer fee not paid within 3 days of the Preview, the Wedding Date will open up to other clients. If at a later time you do decide to book us, and your date is still available, a signed contract and the retainer fee will be required and your wedding date will be secured.
WE DO NOT DO FRIDAY OR WEEKEND PREVIEWS (need them open for weddings...thank you for understanding:)
The bride's booking deposit will hold the date for her and the entire bridal party until a preview is performed.
The booking deposit secures the wedding date until we perform the Preview. At that point the deposit is considered payment for the Preview.
At or within 3 days after the Preview a $160 non-refundable retainer fee will be due with a signed contract to continue to secure the wedding day.
If for any reason you are unhappy with your Preview please address any concerns at that time. If another Preview is requested there may be an added charge. We do not offer refunds after a Preview is performed.
We have a $300 wedding day service minimum with a lead artist for travel on a weekend (Friday, Saturday or Sunday)
If additional artists are requested to help with your bridal party there will be a $300 minimum (4 service minimum per artist) So for example if you have 8 ladies wanting services you can request a second artist and each artist will have four services at $85/service
We do not travel for Previews. They are performed at our San Juan Capistrano studio. We do travel to you on the wedding day:)
Travel fee will apply if your wedding is outside of Orange County
We do not do Blow Outs and need hair completely dry
We take cash, credit cards and Venmo
Final Payment must be paid on or preferably before the wedding/event date with cash, credit card or Venmo to the artist performing the services.
SIGNING CONTRACT: If the contract is not signed within 3 days of the Preview, the Wedding Date will not be secured, but will open up to other clients.
