Whoa, sorry for the radio silence there, y’all. I put “vendor reviews” as the next thing to knock out on my list, and it’s definitely a topic that’s more tedious and not as fun to write, so here we are a few weeks later. And wrapping up my journey here on the ‘Bee isn’t that fun either, so I guess I’m subconsciously delaying that a bit too. But now we’re back on track, and I figured it would be more manageable if I split the reviews up. Today’s post will focus on the New Orleans based wedding vendors we used, and next time I’ll share “everything else.” Sorry for the length, and the fact that it only applies to a small percentage of readers, but I wanted to make sure I was thorough.
I decided to use the same rubric as Mrs. Turkey to rank my vendors (highly recommend, recommend, recommend with reservations, and do not recommend), but honestly you’re going to see that most of these are raves. All of our vendors were fantastic to work with, and I have no regrets with who we chose, so I had to get really critical in my assessment here. Hopefully my explanations of each are helpful in deciding if a certain vendor is the right choice for you. As always, feel free to leave a comment or send me a message if you’ve got any specific questions.
Makeup by Amanda – Highly Recommend
Amanda is a part-time makeup artist, but she definitely has all the skills and equipment to be the real deal. She worked all day long doing makeup on myself, my bridesmaids, our moms, and a few extra family members. We had airbrush foundation and false eyelashes for a reasonable price. I remember she had to redo my eyelashes because some powder got on the falsies, and even though it took a little bit longer, I appreciated the extra attention to detail. In my humble opinion, I think everyone looked amazing, and if you’d like to contact her, just shoot me a message and I’ll send you her email.
