BEST BRIDAL PARTY GETTING READY by VO evolution

How to have the best Getting Ready Bridal party!

If you are the king of Bride that loves getting ready with the girls and get the party started with mimosas, this is a blog you MUST read! I have been part of many bridal parties so I have my own list of the dos and don’ts for a bridal party to go easy and smooth and to enjoy that moment; here is a list of Do’s

  1. – Take Time into consideration:

Time is GOLD here, since you have a certain time to be ready for pictures, or the ceremony or any other fun thing you are doing before the wedding. We suggest that the guests are ready in a room. (And with ready I mean, dry hair and washed face) So they can be on time with their beauty treatments (hair, makeup, manicure & pedicure etc..) if everyone is in the room, the beauty artist will work according to the Schedule and everyone will be ready on time.

Tip: book the photographer 1 hour before they start doing the Bridal hair and makeup so he has time to shoot the getting ready Pictures.

About the Schedule for beauty, don’t worry about it; Vo-Evolution will be in charge to give you the Schedule according to your needs.

  1. – FOOD AND BEVERAGE

Try to have a food platter of sweet and salty Hors d’ oeuvres, a mimosa bar and plenty of water, to get the party started. Remember that you girls have to eat, because alter the getting ready everything goes pretty Fast, leaving you with long hours of not eating so you need all your energy for those hours, and I am not going to lie a little booze will also calm the nerves.

  1. – MUSIC MAKES THE PEOPLE COME TOGETHER

Have a playlist for this specific happening, make a list f songs that you and your friends have memories with or are familiar to you, so you ca sing a long and remember good times, music is always a good way to set the mood!

I forgot to mention that if you have a good set of speakers you should bring them with you, some Hotels don’t provide good quality speakers and good sound is always better 😉

  1. – MAID OF HONOR

The maid of honor takes an important role here, she will be in charge to deal with things you don’t and can’t worry about that day, the main task of the maid of honor will be to solve little details, and to make sure you THE BRIDE are relaxed and enjoying every single moment. Make sure you have a special thank you gift for her; she will make your life way easier at this point. Things a maid of honor is in charge of payments, making sure everyone is on time, music, etc…

Those 4 Do’s are essential to make a great bridal party and I am sure it will set the mood for the best day of your life!

GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!

IMPORTANT BEAUTY TIPS TO CONSIDERING FOR A DESTINATION WEDDING

We can all agree that Pinterest and Instagram have come to make our lives sooo much better. When it comes to planning a wedding they help a LOT and getting ideas is way easier with this apps!

But, as I said they are all just IDEAS, that create some expectations, especially when it comes to the final look. Today I want to talk about the hairstyle, for brides and guests.

When it comes to choosing your hairstyle for a beach wedding there are a few things to consider. Sometimes our clients come with a beautiful Picture from Pinterest and of course the model looks perfect with her flawless Beach waves, in a Photo that’s on the Beach, but that curly lasts for the photo shoot and the stylist is just behind the model fixing every detail every 5 min. we know it won’t be your case. So all I want to do is list a few things to consider when choosing your hair, so you can come with a realistic idea and you end up happy with the result

Weather.

The weather in the Riviera Maya is Humid, so your chance of Frizziness rises. Although we use humidity Proof products, a hair that is down and wavy is not going to last, your waves will eventually fall and the frizziness shows more.

Also if you are getting married in front of the beach or out doors there is going to be wind, and hair will be on your face most of the time, that is a bit annoying, trust me I’ve been there.

If you don’t like your hair all done up, try to go for a wavy up do, or choose Brands to add a boho style, play with textures in the up do, a hairdo can have so many movement, start looping for creative ideas or let the professionals give you some ideas J

Hair type:

Of course we can make a very straight hair look curly, or vice versa, but keep in mind that the more we change your hair type the less it stays, there is nothing better than working with your hair type and give form and body to it, creating a beautiful hair style using what you already have.

Hair length

Your hair length its an important thing to consider, there are some hair styles that require very long hair in order to look the way they do, voluminous and with lots of movement, consider your length when it comes to hair dos with lots of twists and Braids. We do have Tools to make your hairstyle with more volume but it depends on how much texture you want. If not, we highly recommend natural hair extensions; they are perfect and the style looks much more polished with more hair.

I hope this tips are helpful when it comes to finding out what you want for your hair and finding something you are going to LOVE and that It will surely last all night long!

For the rest let us take control and we will make you fall in LOVE with your style

with LOVE, VO evolution Team

Joanne’s Makeup & Hair wedding day Hyatt Ziva Cancun

It’s Wedding Season and Vo –Evolution team is working like crazy!! This is one of our favorite times of the year because we get to see lots of different brides, with so many different styles and we get inspired with the newest trends.

On this blog we want to present our beautiful bride Joanne who got married recently at the Hyatt Ziva Hotel. We met with Joanne at the bridal room, which was decorated with fresh flowers and there was champagne and fresh tropical fruits, special for a wedding day.

Joanne asked for a subtle Smokey and an up do for her look.

For her makeup we used the Ultimate basics Naked palette using the commando shade on her inner crease and tempted and instinc shade in the outer crease, to add a little depth and smokeyness we applied lethal shade. The rest of the look was very soft looking with pink tones on her lips and cheeks and a touch of highlighter, we used the Jaclyn Hill Becca palette, using the color champagne pop.

Her hair was a curly up do, with some curls falling to make it look more relaxed and playful. We added a headpiece on the side to complete the look.

The look turned out beautiful, Joanne’s look was very classy and clean.

Thank you Joanne for letting us be part of your wedding day, it was really fun working with you!
