Investing In Beauty | Planning your wedding during the Pandemic

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, add to that the various and ever changing restrictions in different locations around the world it’s enough to take you to the edge. The not knowing of what will come next with COVID-19 can cause much fear and anxiety. When it comes to planning your wedding day look we’re here to help guide you and take some of that stress away.

If you are planning a wedding in the coming months chances are your dream budget may have to be adjusted.

Have a budget in mind 

If  you find pricing that seems much lower than the standard in your city, now as opposed to pre-pandemic pricing then, that’s a big indicator of the type of  service you will receive.  Be reasonable when it comes to vendor costs. Without a doubt you’ll be looking to save money where you can but be sure that you are not sacrificing cleanliness or using substandard practices. It’s all relative in the beauty business. $1.99 foundation doesn’t give you the same result as $59.00 foundation….the lower the price the lower than standards.

There are a few items on that list that we highly recommend you invest in. If you have to make budget cuts don’t let your dress, your wedding day hair and makeup, and your photographer.

When it comes time to say YES to your dress DO IT! Just DO IT! It’s a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never regret. When you look back at your photos in the years to come you’ll get to relive that YES moment over and over again.

Now let’s talk hair and makeup!

Makeup In The 702 has been in the wedding business for over a decade in Las Vegas and  we’ve witnessed many changes in the hair and makeup industry. Including the uprising of the “Insta-Artist”, sure they may have 20k followers and hundreds of likes per post but where’s their product?  Where’s the bride? Where the wedding party???  Are they licensed?  Do they have insurance?  Do they use contracts?   These are all professional standards that a bride may not realize are important until it’s too late.  AND now due to COVID-19 you have to add to that list of considerations thoughts of additional health and safety measures. In the midst of this pandemic we want you to be assured that we have amp’d up our game with additional safety protocols to our already stringent standards when it comes to health, safety and sanitation.

Now about photography

The most valuable result of having both your hair and makeup done professionally on your wedding day is your wedding photos!  When the day has come and gone all you’ll have left is your gown tucked away in a closet, your memories and photos, so shouldn’t you look like the most beautiful version of you in that stunning gown? 

Your makeup artist and stylist know how to bring out and accentuate your best features with highlighting, contouring and blending to make you look your best for both your groom and those cameras because in real life there are no filters or beauty face apps. 

Don’t get hung up on price when choosing your photographer.  First there has to be a personality match!  IF the chemistry is not right with your photographer your personality WILL NOT shine in the photos.  Next, you need to view a full body of their work beyond what you see on a website or IG make that appointment so you can see their finished work first hand.  If you like what you see and personalities are a  good fit, book your hair and makeup trial and an engagement shoot at the same time and take both of these wedding pros for a test drive.

Pandemic or not, you deserve the very best on your most beautiful day!  Everyone that sits in our chair is guaranteed 15 hour water and transfer resistant makeup and hair that withstands the desert winds.  Don’t take our word for it though… we encourage you to read our reviews on the Knot, and Wedding Wire to see first hand what our brides have to say about their personal Makeup In The 702 Experience.
