Hair and make-up
• Have your hair done in-salon: It'll be cheaper than a home visit.
• Visit make-up counters: Book consultations and ask questions as you're being made up. Buy the key pieces, then practice the look at home.
• 'I suggest the bride has a make-up lesson and takes along her maid of honour with a camera to document it. The bride takes centre stage and all the stops are pulled out for her, but the basics from the lesson can be adapted to suit the bridesmaids,' says make-up artist Mathew Alexander (www.mathewalexander.co.uk).
