Some of the sweetest words from our recent brides!!

You don’t get into this business of brides and beauty if you do not truly hold a passion for it. This is not an industry that is generally stumbled into- it is one of a true passion for helping brides look and feel their best and a genuine thrill and excitement for having the privileged of playing a roll in such a special day for some one.  When we open up our mail boxes to sweet words and thanks from our clients, it is just a further reminder of why it is that we do what we do!!

 

Some might think flying half way around the world to get married would double the stress. Megan was fantastic at keeping in touch during the lead up to the wedding with preparation tips. It was also comforting to know that the hair and makeup 8.5- Blog 1artists would come to the hotel to get us ready.

Cassie and Annie were very prompt with their arrival and got straight to work on the MOB, MOG and the favourite aunties. They were all a little unsure of what they wanted but the Cassie and Annie were great at giving suggestions and the ladies were very happy with their end results and felt like movie stars! As for myself, I had a veil with a headband that I wasn’t quite sure that Cassie would be able to structure into the hair designs I had to show her – boy was I wrong, my hair was amazing and my veil didn’t budge one bit all day! Annie also did a fantastic job of achieving the look I wanted with my makeup and it lasted well into the evening!

Thank you to Megan and the team at Makeup in the 702, you helped to create some wonderful memories for our wedding day! I would happily recommend Makeup in the 702 to anyone looking for hair and make up for a wedding or any special event.         ~Tammy McGowan

The personnel at Makeup in the 702 is beyond awesome. Annie and Crystal were my main makeup and hair and they were very accommodating during my trail run and the day of event. Both Annie, Crystal and the other make up artist made all my bridesmaids, mother, mother in law, and sister in laws look absolutely beautiful with varying degrees of input and backgrounds. I can’t say enough how support and easy it was to work with Makeup in the 702 in making my wedding day great! Thank you so much.                                  ~Tuyen Dang

Makeup in the 702 made my wedding day spectacular! I’ve never felt so beautiful, and that is exactly how I wanted to feel on my wedding day. Thank you so much! From my mother, bridesmaid, daughter, to me we looked amazing. We had to plan a spontaneous wedding in Vegas, after zika virus ruined plans for destination wedding in Caribbean (surprise baby onboard :)) wedding was beautiful and the most perfect and wonderful
day I’ve ever had.. Thank you to the wonderfully talented professionals for making our day start so beautiful.

I traveled from Ireland for my wedding so all my interaction was done through e-mail; I found Megan very professional and helpful, and making the booking was incredibly easy. The girls were lovely and did amazing work, my hair and makeup held up all day and everyone loved it. I was especially impressed with the customized blend of foundation as I’m a pale Irish girl and was terrified of looking orange, but it matched my skin tone perfectly. I would definitely recommend you guys, especially for anyone travelling.

The Fourth of July is an absolute perfect weekend for a summer wedding!! The weather is perfect, it’s a 3 day weekend, family and friends are already in a festive mood…….and……there are SO MANY fab ways to incorporate Red, White and Blue and a love for the good ol’ USA into your day!!!

Here is a round up of some of our favorite images of patriotic brides and couples as well as decor and floral.

USA2

I love the idea of bordering the dinning area or the aisles and chairs of the ceremony with these American Flag bandannas. Or, how about blue and red bandannas?!

 

 

 

USA4

Up the USA WOW factor and the end of the celebrations by pairing the modern classic sparkler send off with small American flags for all your guests to wave as you and your love make your grand exit.

What could be more perfect for a Fourth of July wedding than a classic American back yard Bar-B-Q?!?!

Picnic tables, mason jar cocktails, a decked out hamburger slider bar, and of course cold beer!!!!!

Here is a FANTASTIC list of patriotic songs to dance to at your wedding.

So often in the wedding a beauty industry you hear the word “Princess”. Things like “Every girl wants to be a princess on her special day” “She looks like a princess!!”

While these crowns are absolutey stunning enough for royalty on a wedding day, for me they conjure up ideas of Garden Goddess and Bridal Fairy.

I am a firm believer that literally any hair style is greatly inproved with a flower crown, this is a quick round up of some of out favorites weve come across in the last few weeks.

These romantic up-dos are perfect for hot steamy summer months by keeping the hair off the neck and out of the face while celebrating.

Heather and her sweetie Anthony had their splendid wedding at TPC Summerlin and perfect spring weather could not have worked out better.  Kara from Kandy Lane Photography was able to capture some really fabulous shots of the beautiful bride and her wedding party in that lovely later afternoon light.

 

 

 

Heather 2

This is my ABSOLUTE favorite shot from the day!! I love this sweet moment of all the women in Heather’s family dotting on her and helping her make the trip down the aisle.  It reminds me that each of the people there on your day are special for different reasons, but every single one of them is there to play their part and celebrate you and your love!!!

CONGRATULATIONS HEATHER AND ANTHONY!!!!!

May you carry the love, joy and excitement from this wonderful day with you as you start this new exciting chapter together as husband and wife!! Best wishes to the both of you!!!!!
