So my wedding is two weeks away from this coming Saturday. I had my makeup trial last Friday and I absolutely hated it. I was very clear with what I wanted and had pictures, it was nothing like anything I asked for. My fiancé even said I looked 10-15 years OLDER. Makeup what caked on, uneven, you name it. Problem is, I signed a contact before I had the trial because it was the day before everything was shut down from Covid and they wanted me to lock the date in for myself and my bridesmaids. I found another makeup artist who is available on my wedding day and I love his work. Also the new artist is $50 more than what the other place is and I know it’s short notice to tell the bridesmaids. Also two bridesmaids are not added onto the contract for other reasons but now they want makeup. How can I get out of a contact? Or do I keep the three girls on there and exclude myself from that contract and have the other two girls on with the new makeup person?
The only way to know how to get out of a contract is to read your contract. Some contracts have a cancellation fee if it’s too close to the wedding, some don’t and some actually state that you’d owe the whole balance this close to the wedding. You definitely won’t get any deposit money back though if you put some down. As for the more expensive artist, if you’re choosing someone new and more expensive last minute, you should cover any additional fees that the girls haven’t already agreed to.
Honestly if it was that bad I would just cancel the contract with her, take the monetary loss and go with the new person. It'll be worth it in the end. You want to look and feel your most beautiful. You don't want to have to look at pictures with bad makeup for years to come. You should offer to pay the difference for the other girls.
