Beauty and the Bride

As a wedding professional do you often get asked by your brides what should I do for my make up and my hair on the wedding day?  Or do you think my make up looks good now so that I can do it myself on the wedding day?   My friend does hair and make up and we are going to save a ton of money because she is doing it for free, as you glance over at her friend’s make up that she is referring to in sky blue eye shadow with red lipstick and hair matted with hair spray (all you can think about is, we are stuck in an 80’s nightmare!) Those are the questions that can make any wedding professional look like a deer caught in headlights.  But it does not have to be that way.  Once you sign your bride up to work with you as your client, have a checklist of the things that you will go over with the bride for instance selection of photographer, videographer, dress shopping and all the other needed services, but most important  have a category on your planning forms called health and beauty.  This is where you can discuss with your bride about proper nutrition so that she has the energy that is needed on the day of, exercise to help her look the best that she can, skin care with a professional esthetician and lastly professional hair and make up that will make her look natural but beautiful on the day of the wedding.

The Association of Bridal Consultants had the pleasure of hosting their meeting at Marilyn Monroe Spa.  At this meeting we had an opportunity to hear from each person that works at the salon to explain the process of taking care of the bride’s skin, hair, and nails in order to prepare for the wedding day.  One of the take aways that stood out was to not wait for the week before to start planning the regime of hair, make up and skin.  The bride’s skin should start preparation almost simultaneous to the day after engagement so that it does not become an expensive last minute process. As a wedding professional, feel comfortable talking about these beauty tips.  Don’t forget to discuss teeth whitening and tips to maintain those pearly whites.  One of my personal favorites, if you have to have that cola or tea, use a straw and do not swish your drink in your mouth, use whitening toothpaste and whitening mouthwash.  Lastly if you are going to preach beauty, as a wedding professional don’t forget to check your own after all, our clients look up to us to be the best that we can be.

Thank you to our sponsors that made our meeting a success at Marilyn Monroe Spa.

Spotlight On A Vendor …..Orlando Harpist Christine MacPhail

Today’s spotlight is on Christine MacPhail, Orlando Harpist.  Christine began playing the harp at age 6 and has been playing professionally in the Central Florida area for over 25 years. She enjoys playing a variety of music of all styles, from classical to contemporary, and always loves learning new songs and adapting them to the harp. Christine MacPhail When 27 Miracles interviewed Christine and asked why she wanted to get involved with The Gift of Life,her reply was ” I am honored to be helping Rosie to benefit A Story of Faith and Florida Hospital.  The story of her son Kaleb is inspirational and would touch anyone’s heart.  Rosie and the 27 Miracles Team are continually giving back to the community and I am privileged to be included at her charitable events.” ChristineMacPhailPic2 Christine and her harp bless many in the Central Florida area by playing at weddings, charity events and more…..Her music is very inspiring. When Baby Kaleb was born, Christine made a cd for him that to date he still listens to before bed.  The music was soothing to him during those long nights of hearing an oxygen concentrator all day and night.  He became so used to Christine’s music that when she played at Kaleb’s baby dedication, he immediately turned his head to Christine’s music. 061310 Kaleb's Baby Dedication at the First Baptist Church of Windermere

“When GaLuWi Inc. heard about the challenges that Rosie had in pulling together resources to tell her story of faith, we were touched and decided to help in some small way using our graphic abilities.

Today’s Spotlight is on Roque Productions

27 Miracles wants to recognize Andres Roque of Roque Productions.  Andres and his team are no strangers to working and giving back to the community.  That is in fact how Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles met Andres.  She was in need of vendors to work at the 27 Miracles Christmas Extravaganza in downtown Winter Garden.  Rosie did not know Andres but they met at a Bridal Show.  When Rosie emailed vendors for assistance in this event, Andres was the first to say, I will help.  This event was to raise funds and honor the Brides Against Breast Cancer, Toys for Tots and the Boys and Girls Club of Winter Garden.  With over 400 plus people attending the event, the night was a success on that cold December 2, 2010 weeknight.

After that Roque Productions has worked with 27 Miracles on various other community events, weddings and Quinces.   27 Miracles’ clients are always happy with the stellar work that they perform.

When we asked Andres why do you do what you do for the community, his reply “If you have the opportunity to get involved with The Gift of Life event, I really encourage you to do so. Over the past 4 years, we have worked with Rosie and the 27 Miracles team on numerous events for great causes.  They truly have their community’s best interest at heart and their drive to help others is admirable.  We are all called to help our neighbor and the events put together by 27 Miracles have become a great way for us to do so. “

Roque Productions is in the business of “Making It Happen” for their clients. Since the beginning, CEO Andrés Roque, made it a point for his clients to feel valued and this carries through the company. From the planning process to the post event wrap-up, you’ll understand that they are driven to go beyond. Sure, there are lots of companies that provide similar services, but the difference in how they provide these services can only be experienced.
