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. 


We are thankful!

This time of year we all start to think of the things in life we are thankful for. At the top of our list are the amazing women that make up the DV Team! These ladies make use proud to be in the business of making brides beautiful for their big day. Each DV artist has a unique personality and special gift they bring to the team. As individual as they are, our team is consistently awesome. We firmly believe there is no “I” in TEAM and we work together to provide an amazing experience for our brides.


To ALL our DV Divas (including those not pictured above)…

Each of you are kind, loving and passionate women. You are beyond talented and creative! You are incredible, mothers, teacher and friends.

Thank you for being the women you are! You make it possible for us to enjoy what we do everyday.

Have you tried Elf Products?

DV Favorite Things

Typically we use only professional makeup products. Although a few months back one of our stylists Georgia told me about Elf products. Eyes, Lips and Face. She was raving about the strip lashes. They are $1.00 each and let me tell you they are pretty fantastic. Compared to a set of Mac lashes at $15.00 and above, you can save quite a bit. I do have to say they are a one time use lash. I went online to see the Elf products and had a terrific time spending $50.00 to get my free shipping. When my package arrived it was like Christmas, full of toys. How could this be a good product if it is so cheap. So the Design Visage artists put it to the test. Gotta say many of the Elf products pass the test.

Here are the winners

Elf loose shimmer shadows: our favorite colors are golden and angelic. Awesome for highlighting the eye or cheekbone

The mineral powder booster: favorite color shimmer. Compares to top minerals, for a whole lot less dough

Strip lashes, there wonderful. Toss the glue and use a professional one.

Not all the products are great, but for a $1.00 to $5.00 a product, its worth the chance. You can find Elf products at some Target stores or Check back for more updates on our favorite products.
