  4. The date is open for other brides to book until your deposit is paid. 

Your date is confirmed and taken off the market only after you pay the first payment and sign your contract.

Often we will have someone inquire about a date that is open and then with in a few days we will have another inquiry for that same date. When that happens we go by a first come first serve rule. We will give the first person the option to pay the non-refundable deposit to hold the date. If that person is not ready to make that commitment then we offer it to the the 2nd inquiry.

To ensure the safety of the artists and make sure we are close to you in the morning we will require a hotel room for our artists the night before the wedding.

If your wedding takes place during the colder months when snow is possible, depending on the forecast that week we may require a hotel room to make sure our artists are already at the hotel safely the evening before.

I highly recommend Shimmer and Spice for wedding day makeup! Penelope did an amazing job with my bridal makeup. She listened to everything I said and gave me a natural and beautiful look that lasted the whole day and night! My husband still makes comments about how much he loved my makeup!

She and Hannah Jo did a great job making all the girls look stunning and they were so sweet! I really appreciated how well they worked with our hairstylists to create a timeline that worked for my bridal party. They were so easy to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. Kristyn and her team do a great job of communicating with clients from the very beginning.

Don't hesitate to hire S+S for your wedding day makeup! You will not regret it!

"My husband still makes comments about how much he loved my makeup!"

I knew I wanted to go with Shimmer and Spice for my makeup, and I am so happy I did! Megan was my lead artist, and she was amazing! My makeup made me feel so beautiful, and she took into consideration all of the changes I had made from my trial.

Ashley was our second artist, and my sisters were so impressed by her makeup, they felt so beautiful as well. They both made us all feel so comfortable, and everyone was laughing and having a great time! The communication before the day was so easy and they were very organized. I could not have asked for a better experience, thank you so much!

"I could not have asked for a better experience"

I do not wear too much makeup day-to-day. For my wedding I was panicking because I could not find a makeup artist that would give me a natural look for my wedding, I just wanted to look like myself.. but better.

I found Shimmer and Spice on Instagram, their natural but bohemian + edgy style attracted me. I had my trial with Penelope and I was blown away, I had never felt so confident in someone doing my makeup for my wedding day! My makeup made me look elegant on my wedding day, but I still looked casual enough for my city wedding in the hip-and-trendy Fishtown neighborhood.

Penelope took the time to learn about my wedding, my dress, the vibe and style I was going for, and she made me feel like my own kind of Princess. The process to book Shimmer & Spice with the owner Kristyn was also extremely seamless. Highly recommend Shimmer & Spice for any event or wedding!

"Highly recommend Shimmer & Spice for any event or wedding!"

Shimmer and Spice were so wonderful to work with and really added to my day-of experience. They brought a calm, fun energy as well as an expert approach. Myself and my bridesmaids really appreciated how they included time for touch-ups, something not every makeup company will do!

They were even ahead of schedule, which kept things stress-free. Kristyn, Megan, and Maggie were great to work with, and my day-of make-up was better than I could have imagined.

"They were instrumental in helping me feel like a real bride!"

I used Shimmer and Spice for my October wedding, and I'm so glad that I did! Brianna was my makeup artist for the day and she is incredibly talented and so kind! My makeup looked natural, yet elevated and bridal. Everyone loved their makeup and the girls brought the best vibes. I would definitely recommend booking with Shimmer and Spice for any wedding makeup needs. 

"Everyone loved their makeup and the girls brought the best wedding morning vibes"

Starting with my trial with Megan - her and Kristyn were so lovely to hang out with and get to know while I had some champagne and tried out my wedding look. Their store is so adorable and I chose to add on a custom lip color to bring on wedding day.

This team was so fantastic with communication, sending me a timeline for day of over a month in advance and making all proposal updates super easy through their portal! Megan and the team were such a lovely presence on wedding day and made all of the girls look STUNNING!

I loved my makeup so much, it was so light but still glam and truly just looked like an elevated version of myself which I really wanted instead of a ton of makeup that didn’t look like me. I would recommend this group to any bride looking to have good vibes on her day, excellent/no stress communication and a beautiful look that’s tailored to you!!

"The Shimmer and Spice Team far exceeded my expectations!!"

Get ready to shine on your big day and let your natural beauty radiate down the aisle
