Our Modern Latina Bride gets her make-up trial for the wedding
Our Modern Latina Bride Goes For Her Make-Up Trial!
By Verky Arcos | 08/24/2011 - 16:59

I am a strong believer in people really owning their craft and showing their talents by being their own #1 spokesperson. For example, as a fashion editor it would be a sin for me to walk around wearing high-water wide leg jeans, so naturally when looking for my make-up artist the first thing I did instead of looking at their portfolio is look at them. It amazes me to see so many “make-up artists” looking jacked up and not really selling their services to the fullest.

Our Modern Latina Bride Decided to Skip the Website and Stick to Invites
Our Modern Latina Bride Sticks to Old-Fashioned Invites
By Verky Arcos | 08/17/2011 - 15:00

As you all know a few months back I postponed my wedding date. As a result, I had to decide how I wanted to follow-up with my guests to notify them of the new date for my big day. I really didn’t want to do the website thing because I simply don’t like it, so I caved in and ordered some simple laser print invites. I felt it was important for the new invite to be complimentary to the original invite, so I made sure it was designed based off of what I’d already sent out.

The time has finally come when I get to do fun stuff like figuring out what hairdo I want for my wedding day! I’m exposed to so many amazing hair and make-up artists that I think I might be a little more picky than the average bride, so I wanted to make sure I chose the right person. I’m not difficult to work with, but I do have a vision and I decided I didn’t want a very well known hairstylist that would end up being more high-maintenance than me, the bride.

You know how when someone close to you is pregnant, all of sudden it seems like every single woman you see is pregnant?

Well, I kind of feel that way with the “D” word: DIVORCE. Now that I am so close to my wedding date, I feel like I keep on hearing about people getting divorced and with the whole J.Lo and Marc Anthony breakup, the word is being thrown around everywhere and it freaks me out!
