Why Us?

Products

We use high quality products that we have personally experimented with and tested. These products withstand Florida's humid climate and keep you looking gorgeous throughout your event. 

 

Lashes: We carry many different styles from brands like Ardell, House of Lash, and Vegas Nay. We use a Latex free Lash glue.

Foundation: We use an excellent skin prep process, excellent primers, and Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, along with proper setting techniques. We believe this gives the best finish while still lasting throughout your entire event.

Other: We use makeup brands such as Urban DECAY, STILA, TARTE, BOBBI BROWN, SMASHBOX, It Cosmetics, LAura Mercier, ETC.  

Hair: We use Kenra no.25 Hairspray, KSM Dry Spray Wax for texture, and Davines OI oil to smooth and condition the hair. As well as other products to give your hair the texture and shape desired.

Other Hair Options: We offer Hair Filling options for thin or shorter hair. This is a mesh type filling that goes underneath your upstyle to give a larger/fuller shape to the hair. We can also advise you on extensions if length is a concern.

About Dear Bride

 

Dear Bride started with Rachel Nelson. She is an Aveda trained stylist as well as a self taught makeup artist. Rachel was raised along the Emerald Coast and had been working in the area for about three years when she fell in love with weddings. She decided to dedicated her time to building a reputation and name in the community. She studied products and new styling techniques and her personal business began to really grow. It grew to be more than she alone could handle. Rachel and her best friend Kasey, who is also an Aveda trained stylist, decided to team up and create something bigger than a One Woman Show. 

In October of 2015 Dear Bride was created by Rachel Nelson and Kasey Adkins. They co-own the business and service weddings year round. Business is booming thanks to the addition of Kasey, who does most of the emailing and coordinating. She is responsive and communicates wonderfully with their brides. Kasey's background in cosmetology is a helpful asset when it comes to communication and scheduling. She knows what questions to ask and how to answer most questions presented to her. Having a two person headship over the business allows for more attention to detail, easier communicating with their clients, and more hands to do the work. This ensures you are completely happy and satisfied on your special day. 

Since October, Dear Bride has grown and continues to do so. Rachel and Kasey truly care about each bride, each engagement, and each photo session they work with. They have a lot of friends in the wedding industry and can also help line you up with other excellent local vendors. Have any more questions? Shoot them an email at Hello@dearbrideco.com
