Getting married abroad is such a wonderful, magical way to get married - it’s the best bits of a wedding and the holiday of a lifetime all rolled into one! But what often feels less than exciting is the logistical challenges of organising the finer details from abroad. Finding a hair and makeup artist for your wedding day is important enough when you’re having it at home, but it can be doubly challenging when you’re navigating a whole different country too.
“While it can be taxing to choose a makeup artist for a local wedding, a destination affair comes with its own set of challenges”
For brides, hair and makeup vies the top spot in the priority list, second only to the wedding lehenga and jewellery. Considering bridal makeup needs to hold up through every last dance, toast and selfie, it’s essential that you entrust this responsibility on a makeup artist only after spending enough time researching your choices. This process can get tedious even for a local wedding, but when you’re hosting the nuptials in a far-flung locale, the stakes are all that much higher. If you ask us, the most important factor to weigh when planning a destination wedding is ensuring that every talent you hire is adept at working on-site. You’ll quickly realise getting camera-ready at a new locale requires additional pre-planning and strategising.
To help you navigate this debacle, we created an easy-to-follow guide to choosing the right makeup artist for your destination wedding. Scroll ahead for the details.
