Its not every Sunday that one gets to see a gaggle of ladies happily sitting together around a table, chatting away while applying makeup AND surrounded by wedding dresses, shoes and a whole lot of other bridal accessories.

Well, I had just the very chance to do the abovementioned, when Celest Thoi, I Do Weddings and La Mer got together to host a ‘discovery session’ for our clients, and the venue for the event was my very own shop in Publika!

In a collaborative effort to provide a little treat to our clients, I Do Weddings and Celest Thoi gathered together a group of brides-to-be, and gave them a personalized skincare session complete with all the bells and whistles! Leading skincare specialist La Mer was at hand to walk the ladies through the essentials of keeping a bride’s skin healthy-an extremely important thing to do during the stressful period before the big day.

Aptly called a ‘Discovery Session’, the ladies were carefully guided by the experts to discover just the right formula to perfect skin, an asset that becomes increasingly harder to maintain as the bride becomes increasingly pressured when the wedding day creeps closer and closer. Through hands-on tutorials, the participants sampled the wide range of products La Mer had to offer, with consultants just beside each pair to offer advice and guidance on their proper usage.

I suppose its not an entire normal experience to apply cream and such while a bevy of other ladies are sitting right beside you mimicking your movements, so the session started off rather quietly as each participant concentrated on their own set of products. However, as the day wore on, everyone began to warm up, and soon, it was a lighthearted bunch that laughed and bantered while rubbing La Mer’s moisturizers on their cheeks!

Their journey didn’t just end here, as each participant went home with a customized box of products sponsored by the good folk from La Mer!

It was an extremely satisfying experience to see our clients enjoying themselves among other brides-to-be, all facing the same pressures and hardships leading to the wedding day, sharing tales and swapping bits and pieces of advice. Coupled with the idyllic setting, the sight of happy, radiant ladies busily chatting is one that I won’t easily forget.
