Desert Destination Elopements

Can we just start this post by saying We ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE working with destination brides!!

The stunning picturesque backdrop of the Southern Nevada Desert is guaranteed to capture all of the romance of the day in your wedding photos and are the perfect choice for a micro wedding, minimony, or elopement.

We are so fortunate to be able to work with Brides from around the world!  Our number one goal for your destination elopement is to make things as stress free as possible.  First and foremost we encourage you to book your bridal hair and makeup early, there is no “off season” when planning a destination wedding in Las Vegas. 

Planning your bridal look can be stressful and we get that… that is why we have developed a flawless cycle of communication to help you prepare for your day.  Most destination brides are not afforded the opportunity to schedule a trial date prior to their wedding day furthering the importance of booking with us well advance.  Doing so allows us plenty of time to talk about your vision and share your inspirations with your stylist and your makeup artist. We offer the convenience and flexibility of on-site service, creating a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere in an unfamiliar place leaving you radiant and photo ready for your day.  

Here are few things to consider when you’re while planning your hair and makeup for your destination wedding (wherever it may be).

Do your research

Read reviews, view both photographers and makeup artists body of work and do be shy, ask questions. Any wedding pro you are considering for your day should afford you the time to answer any questions you might have.

Book your location or venue first and don’t be shy, ask your bridal concierge/consult for referrals. 

Knowing where you’ll be getting married will  also have a huge impact on your style.  You’ll be able to share details with your beauty team that will help them help you determine your beauty timeline for the day.  We encourage you to ask for referrals. Venues are not going to refer you to someone they do not trust since it’s there reputation on the line too.

Book your beauty team 3-6 months in advance to make sure your team is available on your date. 

When possible Book the trial! Many destination brides are not afforded the opportunity to schedule a trial date prior to their wedding day furthering the importance of booking with us well advance, however if you you’re able to schedule your travel plans to accommodate a trial you we suggest you also plan a scenic photo shoot with your wedding photographer.  You’ll be looking impossibly fresh so take advantage of some spectacular scenery while capturing some fabulous memories in your photos.  This is a particularly awesome opportunity if you didn’t have engagement photos done.

Choosing a larger agency with an established reputation  like Makeup In The 702 affords maximum flexibility for spontaneous couples.

Planning your travels to include time for a trial has other benefits too.  You’ll have the chance to preview your look and let your artist and stylist know of  any changes you’d like to your hair or makeup when you have your day of makeup done.

Whatever you vision is, our commitment to an exemplary customer service experience and it starts with you- right here, right now.   Our promise is a wall-worthy wedding look you and generations to come will cherish. 

We do hope that you’ll be planning a wedding in Las Vegas and when you’re ready, we’ll be right here waiting for you when the time is right for you and your wedding…  In the meantime, we’d love to hear about your vision and answer any questions you might have….
