February is Bridal Show Month for Makeup for Your Day! Our final bridal show for February was back in Durham at The Cookery! This venue is also historic and has a very unique and urban feel to it.

This event had a live band and the guests were encouraged to visit every vendor for a chance to enter a raffle!

Megan and I had so much fun chatting with brides and their fiances about their upcoming wedding plans! We met guests who were just recently engaged and some that were just putting the finishing touches on their events.

Bridal shows are a great way to get to chat with vendors and see venues fully decorated. If you find yourself at a bridal show in the future, please make sure you stop by and chat with us! My favorite part of it all is meeting couples and sharing in the excitement of planning a wedding and getting to know them.

That wraps up our bridal shows before we enter this 2016 wedding season. We’ve got a lot of work to do catching up with all the brides we met at the shows this season! See you at the next show!

February is Bridal Show Month at Makeup for Your Day and I will be documenting all of the shows we went to! Megan and I were back in Durham again for a bridal show at the Museum of Life and Science.

I think that this venue brought out the inner child in me. We were set up in the weather room and I don’t know how many vendors can say they could chat with brides next to a tornado!

The museum set up this gorgeous alter.

Our models for this event were actually employees at the museum and were such a treat to chat with. They talked about how great it was to work for the museum!

Hair and Makeup by Makeup for Your Day

There was live music, food trucks and live animals, all of which could be brought out at an event. I met a lizard and a snake at the bridal show! How cool is that!?

Monica, an employee of the museum, played the role of the “bride” perfectly!

I also got to try some honey lavender ice cream from The Parlour ice cream bus! It was so delicious! Also, who doesn’t love running up to the ice cream truck for a sweet treat!

Megan and I got to chat with some great brides who had come to the museum. Some were already planning on having their wedding there, others were getting a feel for the place. I am sure after this fun night, the choice would be easy!

Bridal Show Month: The Rickhouse

February is Bridal Show Month at Makeup for Your Day and I will be documenting all of the shows we attended! We were invited to be a vendor at The Rickhouse in Durham. This show was fun because it was on Valentine’s day, so it seemed extra romantic.

I really like this venue because it carries so much charm and history. We had a great view of the brewery! Megan and I came out for this show and we got to chat with some great vendors and meet some of the fun brides-to-be!

We had our flowers provided for this show by Tre Bella and they were so gorgeous! I love the way they looked next to the brick background.

Tre Bella’s Display at the Bridal Show

We had a great view of the big dance floor that The Rickhouse has. I feel like Durham brings out the unique creativity in people! At this event I got to meet Riley Mclean and see his tin types! What a cool way to take a portrait!

I will be documenting the rest of our February bridal shows this week! Tune in tomorrow to see where we went next!

Instagram Beauties!

We have the pleasure of working with so much talent on a daily basis.  There is a constant source of inspiration amongst our diverse group of hair stylists and makeup artists.  You can see our regular updates on hair and makeup that we’re creating through our Instagram and Facebook pages but we thought we’d post some of our work from the second half of 2014 here…you know, for “Pinspiration“, too!  Please let us know your thoughts on your favorites.  Our team loves all the feedback!

Enjoy! XO,
