Do you travel to the client or only offer services at your studio?
Yes! We can travel to you on and your wedding day. Travel is calculated at $1 per mile one way from our studio in Riverside RI. This fee is per artist.
If hotel stays, ferrys, planes, etc. are required, a custom quote will be calculated for you. Martha's Vineyard and Block Island wedding have their own travel fee which would be quoted for you upon inquiry.
What is the service minimum and maximum?
We have a 4 service minimum per artist to book on location services. If you do not have enough people per artist, you can choose to pay the equivalent of the minimum.
We do also offer a bride only package which is inclusive of the trial and 50 miles roundtrip.
We have a 6 service maximum per artist.
How much time do you need per application?
We allot an hour per bridal hair and an hour per bridal makeup. Attendee services get 45 minutes each. The getting ready process can range anywhere from 3.75 hours to 5.5 hours.
Can you use my makeup instead of yours?
For sanitation reasons, we cannot use any products other than ours with the exception of your lip color. This helps ensure we stay as sanitary as possible and know that whatever our brushes go into has been sanitized properly.
Do you have an early start fee?
We do! It will be quoted to you if applicable. The early morning fee applies to anything earlier than 7 am.
How does the morning of the wedding day work if I book ALB?
About 8-10 weeks before the wedding I will create a hair and makeup timeline for you that has a time slots for each service being performed.
Do you offer trial runs and if so when do you suggest doing them? Do you offer trial runs for people other than the bride?
Yes and we highly suggest them! We offer trials on Saturdays on the off season and we now offer trials on days we have weddings. Weekend availability is reserved for bride trials only. Monday-Friday are open for trials as long as we do not have weddings that day. We do offer trials for attendees and they are the same price as the brides trial.
How can I secure ALB for my wedding day?
We require a signed contract and $500 non refundable retainer. That retainer gets applied to your final balance.
*Please note that we do not hold dates under any circumstance without the retainer and contract. Once the contract is sent to you, you have 48 hours to send it back before the date is released.*
Do you offer hair and makeup for events other than weddings?
Of course! We offer hair and makeup for any event/shoot along with offering one on one and group classes.
Are you able to accommodate people of all skin tones and hair types?
Without a doubt! ALB prides ourselves on being able to accommodate any and all skin ones and types. We always have a wide range of foundation shades in our kit.
Do you travel to destination weddings?
We sure do! Please inquire for travel pricing.
