Frequently Asked Questions
How do I fully book my wedding day?
In order to completely book your wedding date with Beautifully Unafraid a nonrefundable retainer of $300 and a signed contract is due. The nonrefundable retainer then goes towards the total balance due. Until both are obtained your wedding date will remain open and available to all future clients.
When should I schedule a trial?
The scheduling of a trial is different for every bride! If a bride prefers to schedule a trial prior to booking I would recommend scheduling the trial ASAP. As dates are not held until they are fully booked. If a trial is not requested prior to booking I recommend a trial 3-6 months prior to your wedding day. Trials take place in New Bedford within our studio Monday - Thursday during the wedding season. Friday through Sunday are the most popular wedding days throughout the year. Because of this, Allison is typically on location with clients. NOTE: With that being said if there is any room for flexibility during this time Allison Neves will do her best to accommodate you.
How far in advance do most brides book?
Typically a brides books Beautifully Unafraid 12 to 18 months in advance from their wedding day.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Venmo or Check are accepted prior to your wedding date.

Do you have a travel fee?
