Ready for Your Close-Up! Preparing for the Role of a Lifetime with Bridal Beauty Services in Cabo San Lucas
Weddings are a lot like movies. Both vary widely in size and scope, from major productions to low budget independents (think eloping to City Hall). Both feature strong narrative drive, with plenty of important action. Both hit emotional high points, with teary highs accompanied by dramatic music or dialogue. Most importantly, perhaps, both are star driven. The bride and groom, or course, share lead billing, but let’s be honest…when it comes to big close-up worthy moments, the bride is the unquestioned star of the show. And as with any movie star, hair and makeup are a must before she appears on camera.
That’s why bridal beauty services in Cabo San Lucas are such an important part of the destination wedding process, and it’s why Suzanne Morel Face & Body Care is the stylist of choice for brides who want to shine like a star in their biggest role ever.
Setting the Scene
Today’s spotlighted wedding is what, in the context of our introduction, we would characterize as a major Hollywood production: a stylish and elegantly designed wedding at The Resort at Pedregal, one of the premier ultra-luxury resorts in Cabo San Lucas.
Set on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, and accessible only via the longest privately owned tunnel in México, The Resort at Pedregal features breathtaking vistas from every corner of its magnificently situated property. On this day, a complete design makeover saw The Resort reimagined for a traditional white wedding, albeit with upscale golden accents. The grounds gleamed with white, from white aisle runners and furnishings to a white flower garlanded altar and white wrapped columns supporting The Resort’s distinctive Baja Sur style palo de arco pergolas.
The bride and her bridal party, naturally, were wearing white as well.
Hair & Makeup
White weddings are indeed traditional and thus among the most familiar for hair stylists and makeup artists. But regardless of the type of bridal beauty services in Cabo San Lucas weddings, the focus is on exquisite attention to detail, and making sure the bride–the star of a show people have traveled great distances to see–looks every bit the polished leading lady.
Whether buns, braids, updos, elegant chignons or flowing tresses…glamour or more natural makeup looks…the overarching philosophy remains the same: prepare her so that she looks radiantly beautiful from any and all angles, and photographs that way as well.
For this wedding, Suzanne Morel Face & Body Care dispatched no less than six bilingual beauty specialists–three hair stylists, three makeup artists–to ensure the bride and her bridesmaids were ready for lights, cameras and action!
Bridal beauty services in Cabo are not merely something to be endured, however, but rather enjoyed to the fullest. If you examine the accompanying photos, you’ll not only see plenty of smiles, but funny exchanges, as well as a few bubbly filled Champagne flutes.
It’s a celebration, after all, and the preparation time before the wedding is an opportunity to quell any pre-wedding jitters–being with one’s friends and most trusted family members is always a calming influence–and for the bride to relax into the right mindset so she’ll be ready for her first and most important scene.
Conditions definitely matter…especially with makeup applications. A ceremony under the Baja sun requires a different approach than, say, a reception in a bright hall, or later on, a dance party under nightclub like lighting. Hair and costume changes are also common, so in this way, too, weddings are like movies. There are many scenes, and each requires specific preparations.
Luckily, Suzanne Morel Face & Body Care is on hand throughout your special day, providing touch ups and subtle adjustments as necessary for the bride and her attendants. Of course, bridesmaids, but flower girls and mothers of the bride and groom may also appreciate some special attentions. Why not when you have your own team of beauty specialists on hand?
Imagine how easy life would be if you had your own hair and makeup team every day?
But in that case it would be a luxury. For weddings of almost any size and scale beyond elopement, it’s an absolute necessity.
Manicures, Pedicures, Beauty & Wellness Options
“Bridal beauty services in Cabo” don’t just begin in the hours leading up to the ceremony. Ideally, they begin days in advance. Consider it rehearsal time, and no we’re not just referring to the rehearsal dinner (although that too is an opportunity for our hair and makeup stylists to work their magic).
Manicures and pedicures, massages and other wellness treatments can also be an integral part of the wedding preparation process, helping to optimize body and mind, inner as well as outer beauty.
Certainly, manicures and pedicures can be integrated into the wedding day timeline for the bride and her bridesmaids, as nail filing and shaping, plus cuticle cutting are not overly time consuming. At the very least, polish should be matched and freshened for all members of the bridal party.
Or course, Suzanne Morel Face & Body Care isn’t just the best wedding stylist in Cabo San Lucas, we also operate the Land’s End area’s finest mobile spa. That means we come to rental villas and resort suites as well as wedding sites, and are happy to provide custom massages and traditional therapies for the bride, the bride and groom together, or for friends and family.
When the director calls action for your big wedding scene, don’t you want to make your entrance with total confidence?
From that perspective, bridal beauty services in Cabo aren’t just a standard destination wedding preparation, they’re an essential ingredient for the standout performance of a lifetime.
At Suzanne Morel Face & Body, we don’t care about being mentioned in the credits. We just want to make sure our “movie star” has never looked or felt better, and is definitely ready for her close-up moments.
