my first post ever in this forum... i am really confused in deciding which parlor i should book for my wedding.. i am getting married in october, 2012 INSHAHALLAH...
so if any of u have recently visited the salons in lahore for bridal bookings, then please let me know the charges of following :
madeehas SIGNATURE LINE
siffat @ madeehas
arsh @ new look
and please do tell me how do u rate their makeup and who would u recommend.? i am really looking for the signature lines where the artist should apply the base by herself and do the A to Z make up by herself. i am not sure that wether in case of siffat, she applies the base by herself or the workers.?
i really hope this forum is going to help me a lot IA.

yeah that too muchhh.... looking for the rest of the rates... plus mariam khawaja's rude attitude is bothering me now...she used to be very sweet in the start... one of my friend got her barat and walima's make up by her...she got one hour late to parlor on her walima...n her coordinator said that she has to pay 5000 fine otherwise mariam is not going to do her make up... n when she talked to mariam then she said rules are rules...she is helpless and she has to pay the fine...so she had to pay 40,000 for walima makeup plus 5000 fine... because she couldnot do anything else on the last moments...

Hi Nina! I went to Mariam khawaja on my baraat in Dec 2011 and had a WONDERFUL experience. I also decided to go Mariam after reading tons of positive reviews about her work on this forum. ur friend is surely lying, i was among alot of brides and Mariam was superb with each one. Believe me she was VERY SWEET and attentive with all of us.... So many of my friends have gone to Mariam and have all had the same opinion that she is really nice....and we have all gotten married recently between dec 2011-march 2012.
As for the fine, 2 brides were late when I was there and they paid a fine of 2000 each...no1 was charged 5000...so again maybe your friend is exaggerating.
If the charges are out of budget for any1, there are plenty of other options to choose from but I went to Mariam Khawaja and it was totally worth it!!!! you should look up her fb page and see the amount of girls thanking her for their makeup and experience....I doubt some1 with an attitude would have that kind of response from clients.

^ ahmm ... the ladies at mariam's shared how much fine the two brides paid with you? or u just overheard them ? either scenario is weird and not the level of comfort a bride is looking for on her big day ... even if the brides were fined ... the whole affair shudve have been taken care of in other ways .. or whatever ... no one cares about 2 - 5 grand on their big day .. but the person charging 40+ k shudve realized that instead.
it wud sure get me frustrated.
its a big day for the bride and a thousand things can come up .. so what if brides were an hr late ? they didnt come at the last moment or did they ? im prone to be late where ever i go and not paying 2 -5 k isnt the worry here .. its the stress .. why do that?
too bad cuz i want to go to mariam's too. oh well .. at least i know that i shud carry an extra 2 - 5 k :P
or is this post by someone who i am thinking it is by ... reminds me of the sonia affair i read at GS some time ago."Deconstructing a Pakistani Wedding"

AHMM...When you DO go to Mariam's, all brides sit together and chit chat...so its easy to know who came late.... the fine is mentioned on the appointment card....so there is no element of "suprise" and the receptionist told me when I went for my prebridal services that I should be on time otherwise I will be fined....seemed quite professional to me.
Sorry but I have no idea who is Sonia ...or her affair!

can i just say.....all prices quoted above are like soooooo much cheaper than what we have to pay here abroad for decent make up and not to mention...the salons do hair and dupatta setting and all the other **** they have to do...so im no complaining at all make up in pakistan = Bargain!!!!
for the person complaining about the fine etc....can i just say if you come one fking hour late 1) its not acceptable here 2) you LOOSE your appointment so a fine is nothing compared to not having a make up artist on your WEDDING day!!
1 hour late is ridiculous on the brides part...and the excuse "its my wedding day" just doesnt cut it!!! so maybe your friend needs a lesson in Time management!!!

^ sure? no need to curse ... brides do tend to get outta control ... but we do have a freedom of speech here on this forum which everyone likes to exercise
im getting married this yr and i was applying the situation to myself ........... i dont wana pay half a grand to someone who aint respecting the fact tht i am paying for stress-free services ... fine im one hr late and no i cudnt be on time for xyz reasons and oh wait ill call to confirm if its okay and then pay 2-5 grand which doesnt mean anything to me on my big day ..
its JUST the level of stress for the bride. recent brides have been complaining about this certain someone and id take their word any day ... the word "rude" is coming up a lot for their dealings which is Un Un Unacceptable.
OH WELL - back to the make up artist hunt."Deconstructing a Pakistani Wedding"
