Must Haves For Getting Ready

As a beauty team, we are often in a room full of girls getting everyone ready for someone’s special day! The bride has picked out her most important friends and family to be by her side. Whether it is that one best friend or a whole gang, we have a few must and ideas to help make those hours memorable.

Great Lighting

When scoping out your bridal suite, make sure to check that there’s sufficient lighting in the room. We suggest opening all the blinds on the windows and turning on all lights in the room to get a sense of the natural light.

Light Snacks and Beverages

It’s going to be a long day leading up to the reception, so keep you and your wedding party fueled with an array of light and healthy food. Small sandwiches, a veggie spread, granola bars, and chips will ensure that everyone eats something before the ceremony. And of course, you can’t forget to drink plenty of water!!!

Dressing Robes

You’ll want to wait until the very last minute before you walk down the aisle to put on your wedding dress if you want to avoid any stains, spills, or rips. It’s a good idea for you and your bridal party to get ready in dressing robes so you snack and get styled without worrying about staining your dresses.

Champagne & OJ

Of course you know that if you combine those 2 it is the perfect marriage equaling a mimosa. Have a few girls in charge bringing a bottle so there is enough to go around.

The popping’ bottle shot is a good photo opportunity too, so be sure to save one for when the photographer arrives.

A hanger for your wedding dress

The hotel hanger or the dry cleaner’s hanger just doesn’t cut it. We often see brides searching and asking everyone to pass over their “cuter” hanger, and there’s usually not one around. Etsy has a few hangers that will make your dress look Pinterest worthy! You can even customize your hanger with the date of your wedding or your name. If you take a photo with all of the dresses, it’s cute to customize a hanger with the names of each bridesmaid.



Skip the iron and go straight for the steamer, which will allow you to get any wrinkles or unwanted crinkles out of your wedding day attire without the risk of burn stains.

& More!


Here are a few other extras we often hear people need in the moments before the wedding.

  • Mints
  • Nail polish Remover
  • Toothbrush / Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Safety pins, needle / thread
  • Scissors (Our most borrowed item!)
  • And of course having fun!


And last but not least, don’t forget to have fun! This is your wedding day, after all, so enjoy every moment. Take a deep breath and savor every minute because it will be over before you know it!

Anja did my make up and hair for a photoshoot in Germany and I'm super happy about the result. She is so professional and know how to style and get the best makeup and hair for fashion. I've also seen her doing the most beautiful bridal make up and hair including hair/ make up for commercials. Anja varies her style based on an individual's facial features, skin type and occasion. She is confident, efficient, and genuinely care about making sure everyone is 100% satisfied with their hair and make up. So talented. I can highly recommend Anja.

Anja was an absolute dream and made me feel like a million dollars on my wedding day. I was organising my Gili Islands wedding from Australia and was very stressed out about it! Anja was calm, reassuring and she happily answered my many, many questions. I had such a wonderful trial - I hadn't really decided what I wanted, but Anja somehow turned this into exactly what I'd pictured! Anja was so positive and easygoing which made our morning so enjoyable. I have thick, wayward, wavy hair which is prone to frizz in humidity - she somehow managed to tame it and it lasted all day. My makeup lasted through tears, swear, sun and humidity and looked fantastic all day - but it was still so light and I felt very much like myself. I'm not great at having my makeup done and Anja made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. I'd happily recommend her to anyone.

Anja is the best Hair & Make up artist I could have wished for my wedding! I chose her to do my H&M for my wedding in Bali. I was traveling all the way from Spain for my wedding destination and I couldn't have been happier to have Anja as my H&M artist. She did exactly what I wanted and I looked the most beautiful I've ever been in my life! I wouldn't recommend anyone else, she is incredibly talented with both hair styling and makeup! If you need someone professional, passionate and dedicated, without doubt Anja is your lady!

After a terrible start to my wedding (I was unwell) Anja turned up very promptly and listened carefully to what I wanted. She really did an amazing job of my hair and make up and was interesting and fun to talk to which put me at ease on the day. I am so happy that I took the plunge and booked her without a trial (due to time constraints). Couldn’t be happier with how I looked at my wedding. thanks Anja!

The best hair stylist in Bali! I'm so glad that I have trusted Anja for my wedding day, she did hairstyling for me, my bridesmaids and my mum. Coming from UK, I was a bit nervous at first since I couldn’t do a trial before the day. I have sent a few picture of the kind of styles I liked, Anja did a fantastic job translating our ‘not so clear’ instruction to something that suited us perfectly on the day! We were all sooo pleased with the results, still can't believe my hair lasted the whole day and still looked amazing! Super talented lady, I would highly recommend her to any bride!

Finding Anja to be my makeup artist and hair stylist for my wedding in Bali was such a blessing! We had the privilege of meeting a few months before for a trial and communication was always super quick and easy. She always made me feel at ease with the whole process and made me feel so beautiful on the most important day of my life! Since Bali's weather is hot and humid she used airbrush makeup that lasted all day despite the heat. Anja is such a sweetheart and helped bring my vision to life. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and talented at her work, but she is now someone I also consider to be a friend! Thank you so much for everything! Xx
