Bridal Checklist


We know things can get a little crazy months before your big day. Take a quick look at our checklist to help you plan what services you might need, and when. A Charles Penzone bridal coordinator can answer your questions, and recommend a plan to make you and your wedding party look and feel fabulous.

If you’re getting married within a year, it’s not too early to call!

Looking for inspiration?  Check out our NEW Wedding Styles tab on Facebook! Here, real brides share their wedding photos.  Take a look at how we did their hair, makeup and nails. Find a look you like and get in touch with us to dream up something for your big day.
