Congratulations on your engagement! We are excited for you and truly honored that you have considered White Carpet Bride for your wedding day. Here are our most asked questions about preview appointments.
Some people like to call this your trial run. We like to call this your Preview Appointment. This appointment truly is just that; we want you to preview your ideas and inspirations for hair and makeup to see exactly what you will look like for your Big Day.
Preview appointments are scheduled in in 2 hour increments on Mondays beginning at 10am with our last appointment of the day being at 6pm. We want to ensure there is enough time to fully understand and accomplish the vision you have for your wedding day look. Most previews wrap up within about an hour and a half.
We are located in The Crossroads right next to the KC Star building. Our address is:
1625 Oak St Suite 203
Kansas City, MO 64108
When you get here, use the call box to enter 203# and we’ll buzz you in!
A traditional bridal hair and make up preview is a total of $150.
Should you just desire to do only make up, your preview appointment is $100.
If you’re just wanting only a hair preview, it is $100.
A multi-event preview includes up to 3 separate hair and/or makeup looks at this specific appointment and is a total of $250 to allow for the extra time needed.
These are stand-alone fees, are non-refundable and do not get applied toward any wedding day balances.
Additional previews are priced as above.
Do your homework! Cut out those beautiful magazine advertisements. Build your Pinterest board. Screen shot your bff’s makeup from her wedding that you were obsessed with. We want to know exactly what your vision is for your White Carpet Look. We will talk through all of them with you to find what will work best for your unique features/things you want to highlight, etc. Once we’ve chatted through all of it, we get right to play time! After all, what’s the point of scheduling time out of your busy day to come if you don’t get to see it in real life?
We do ask you bring any veils, hair pieces, extensions, etc. that you plan to wear on your big day. We also suggest wearing white (or a color similar to your gown) to better visualize how your makeup will look day of, besides, it’s just another excuse to wear white and feel bridal!
Most of our brides do come from work or other appointments. We do not ever expect you to go home and wash and moisturize your face (or your hair!) before you come to your preview appointment. Just come as your day’s schedule denotes (heat styled hair/freshly washed, clean face or makeup on) and we will take it from there!
For brides that want to go ahead and make sure they will be a White Carpet Bride on their wedding day, we ask for $200 reservation fee that is applied to your wedding day total. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding. For that reason, it is a really good idea to talk with all your ‘maids before coming in to get a good grasp on who will be wanting hair and make up that day so we can give you the best estimate on total cost.
For brides with multiple event weddings there is a $350 to reserve your day(s).
We would love to find out if we would be the perfect fit for you and your bridal party. Asking a wedding professional to partake in the most amazing day of your life is a BIG DEAL. We don’t take it lightly and would never want any of our potential brides to either! So, like we said above, where it all begins is a preview. Once your preview is complete, we will then have the opportunity to go over contracts, locations etc. While you will be coming to us for the preview, on your wedding day we come to you! We at WCB send our team to you, making sure that you are on time and ready for the rest of your dreamy day.
We are elated to hear more about you and your unique vision! If you are interested in moving forward with White Carpet Bride, please take a moment to fill out our survey (located on the Inquire page) so we can be sure to provide you with the best possible wedding day experience!
We are so excited to help make you and your entire bridal party White Carpet Ready!
