    I scheduled mine for the same time that I am having my 2nd fitting. It is the only time the full picture will be put together before the big day.

    I did mine about 3 months months before the wedding. My work schedule wouldn’t allow me to do it the same day as final fit. If you can, I agree with pp, try to do it the same day as 2nd or final fitting.

    Never even thought of scheduling the second fitting and HMUT on the same day - love that idea! It's all about the same timeline, so it makes sense to book them around the same time, if not on the same day.

    I did one before booking, 12 months out. Then another 1 month out!

    Honestly, my hair makeup people told me when to do it. I went with their suggestion- just ask your people !

    Im also wondering if I should let my GUY see my hair and makeup trial ? Or should I keep it all a surprise for the big day ?!!
