Forget to schedule your pre-ceremony beard trim? Having an up-do emergency? Brides and grooms everywhere are familiar with these last minute wedding day dilemmas. 


A proposed law in Iowa might remedy this issue for couples in the state, while providing a welcome source of income to stylists and venues hit hard by the pandemic. If passed, the law would allow licensed cosmetologists to practice their trade at wedding venues -- including haircuts, styling, manicures, and pedicures. 


The propsed legislation would change the language of existing laws that regulate where cosmetologists can work, from a licensed ‘salon’ to a licensed ‘establishment.’ This would include rooms within a residence, provided certain provisions are met.

Will cosmetologists be the newest teammate at wedding venues?

Who knows when a couple will need someone to step in and save the day!

They coordinate with DJs to make sure the processional and recession go smoothly, and with venue staff and wedding planners to fine-tune the details of the day. As directors of the ceremony, they keep guests engaged, handle interruptions and distractions, and assure all ceremony participants are queued up and ready to shine. 


It’s this collaborative spirit and dedication that make officiants so important:
