We do not offer any other discounts due to the extensive level of customer service we provide along with the luxury nature of our products. 
Can I have a Trial before I decide on choosing Columbus Wedding Makeup, LLC? 
  • We do not typically offer trials without a commitment during peak bridal season.  We are in high demand and to be sure we are 100% dedicated to our brides we do not hold conditional trials.  
What is the deposit? How are services secured and my date reserved? 
  • Columbus Wedding Makeup, LLC, receives several inquiries throughout the year and dates fill up quickly. Therefore, we require a 50% non-refundable retainer by credit card and signed contract to secure your wedding day. The retainer will be applied toward your hair and/or makeup services. Your retainer is non-refundable for reasons including but not limited to; cancellation of wedding, date change, change in services, weather, sickness, etc.
Can I make payments? 
  • Final payment (remaining balance after 50% deposit is made) as well as final hair and/or makeup count is due 7 days prior to your wedding day. Once final hair and/or makeup count has been received (at least 30 days before event), services cannot be removed. Final hair and/or makeup count may not ever be less than the minimum required.  You may add additional services up to two weeks prior to your wedding day. Please contact us to ensure that we have sufficient time and stylists to accommodate additional services. Day of add-ons will be at the discretion of the artists/stylists.    
  • Dates payments are due are listed on the initial invoice.  Columbus Wedding Makeup will not notify the bride the payment is due.  Please be sure payments are received on time to avoid canceling the contract.  If payments are late there will be a $25 late fee assessed every day after the due date on the invoice.

How much time will it take on the day of my Wedding? How many artists will I have with me?
  • Typically each services takes about 30-45 minutes per person but could take up to an hour.  We do build in time to our schedule because it is a busy day and things do come up.  Generally for 6 or less there will be one artist.  If we are providing hair and makeup two artist may be assigned.  For services of more that 6-8 an additional stylist will definitely be needed and/or due to time constraints a $150 fee will be added.

  • Any parking fees or valet is required for your location or toll fees.  These fees will be added to your invoice and paid prior.  Generally downtown parking is approximately $20-$25.   
What if our bridal party is running late? 
  • We strive to make every effort to ensure a specific start and end time for client services is maintained. Therefore, we ask that you respect these timelines by ensuring all wedding party members receiving services arrive at or before the start time listed on the final invoice and confirmation letter. A late fee of $50 per stylist shall be assessed for each half hour extension required due to late client and/or wedding party members.  

What is your cancellation Policy?
