Charlotte Weddings & TDD Prep-Party

Autumn colors, warm days, and cool breezes…

make October primetime for weddings and ‘Prep Party’ events in Charlotte.

Every weekend we are swamped with appointments for bridal party prep, wedding guests, and blushing brides.  We feel truly privileged to play a role in our clients most special day, and we soak up every moment we get to share with our brides and their families.  Earlier this month, we shared in the joy of our own TDD Stylist, Kirsten as she prepared to say ‘I do’.  We kicked off her bridal celebrations by hosting a ‘Prep Party’ here at the salon.  It was a full house and all the ladies enjoyed manicures and pedicures as they sipped mimosas and finalized details for the next day.  They finished off the fun with a Blowout or a 30 minute ‘Pick-Me-Up’ service so they were rehearsal dinner ready.

In the morning our team ventured out to Kristen’s house for the day-of detailing.   We styled over 10 women for her wedding, and our in-house Make-up Artist Danielle, completed the finishing touches with flawless airbrush make-up.  All the ladies looked magazine worthy and the look on the grooms face was priceless as his bride made her way down the aisle.

This past weekend we hosted another prep party on Friday with both the grooms mother and the bride’s mother, as well as the bridal party.  All the ladies had their hair washed and styled and even received deep conditioning services.  By the time the bride made it into our styling chair we felt like we knew her already from all her mother and future mother-in-law gushed about her.  The following morning, we styled the grooms mother and some of their out of town guests for the wedding ceremony.  They were such a fun group!

While Amanda and Sunni worked with the wedding guests at the salon, Jhosselin and Kristen ventured out to take care of a bride preparing for her nuptials in Gastonia.  Going on site to a wedding prep is always such an amazing experience.  Usually, by the wedding day we have worked with the bride several times whether for her bridal consultation, bridal shoot, or bridal nails, we’ve seen her in every stage of wedding prep and stress.  This was the case for our bride Anna on Saturday, and my favorite part of styling for weddings is seeing the bride on their wedding day, ready for all that is ahead and excited to see their planning come to fruition. Since October & November are the peak wedding season here in North Carolina, we were very excited to take a 4 hour class by one of the best in the business. Training topic? Wedding hair and we left the class (hosted at TDD) full of bridal hair inspiration….see two of the styles from the class below!

    I would love to get more information on your wedding services – especially the makeup portion. It appears the link above did not work where it said to click for more info. Would you please send over some pricing options? I am getting married on Friday, October 6th and am in need of makeup for myself and 6 girls. Also – do you have any options for group nail services? I may treat the girls to mani/pedis the day before the wedding.
