Team Building – The Design Visage Way

Team building is important for any company, it builds motivation, trust and rapport. Most large corporations have team building activities that involve working together to achieve a task or competitive activities to ignite motivation and passion. All designed to build the companies bottom line.

At Design Visage we take Team Building a little differently. Although we work together throughout the year, our focus is always on our bride and the bridal party. We have to make it a point to come together as a group to stay connected and get that personal time that can not be achieved via weddings on the weekend or Facebook.

We choose different activities for different reasons. 

White water rafting – To build trust and teamwork. Definitely a crazy day, no one wanted to end up in the water so you have to take care of each other to stay in the boat.

Sometimes our team building includes work. Here we all got together to make a VIP group of coordinators beautiful in LA. Our artists are always there when we need them.

The team can not always get together at the same time.

Individually we can bond as well. Here we participated in a yoga rave.

The adventures of the Design Visage Divas included this fun outing to hot air balloon in Del Mar! Never made it off the ground but that’s a whole other story.

Our artists give their time throughout the year.

This year we gave our time to Wish Upon a Wedding and celebrated at the annual Gala.

We generally close the busy wedding season with a gathering in December to reflect

and look forward to a prosperous New Year. A gondola ride to see the holiday lights.

Can’t say it is all work and no play with a break in the photo booth!

And again although the ladies were meeting new brides at the Love Tour they are able to spend valuable time together.


The next adventure for the Design Visage Divas…a cruise. That’s right, we are heading out for fun in the sun. We will play, relax, laugh and maybe even cry. Tears of joy and graditude for the amazing women we work with everyday. 

For us, team building is our way of staying connected and understanding who our artists are. We want to keep them inspired and motivated to always do an amazing job.

I feel our efforts are reflected in the work they do and the phenomenal reviews we get from our brides. A Design Visage artist is a woman of integrity, professionalism, artistry and compassion.

Of course I know our DV Divas are amazing although I never tire of hearing it from others. From a quick email to a handwritten note, or a detailed review, our raving fans find a way to let us know how we made them feel.

I feel warm and fuzzy when I walk to the mailbox and find a hand addressed envelope inside. It may be a bride or even a planner that has been touched by our artistry and level of service that made a huge impact on their big day. 

There is still something special about a handwritten note.

I also LOVE opening my email inbox to find our brides photos along with an email about our artists.

And then there are our RAVE REVIEWS! It is so wonderful when the wedding is done and our artists have made such an impact on a brides big day that she tells it to the world. Our artists feel touched by their brides who let them know what a fantastic job they did and it also keeps them motivated to continue to provide an amazing service.

There is no other company that has the tremendous talent of our artists combined with their incomparable professionalism. 

Thank you to all our brides that take the time to let us know what a great job we did!

And a special THANK YOU to all our DV Divas for the amazing work that you do and the special women you are!
