Recession Fails To Halt Weddings

Ennis, Ireland (PressExposure) May 05, 2009 -- Irish Brides-To-Be searching for the perfect choice of makeup artist have had their prayers answered with the launch of ‘Makeup By Gillian’ in County Clare.

Gillian Dunphy, a professional freelance makeup artist specialising in weddings, says that the economic downturn has had little impact on the number of couples deciding to walk down the aisle.

“The demand for Makeup Artists is as strong as ever. However, most brides are looking for more competitive rates without jeopardising how they look on their Big Day. Like every other sector, the wedding industry has had to adapt by offering clients a quality service at a reasonable cost”, stated Ms. Dunphy.

She said that there was a common perception of makeup artists being overly expensive.

“This could not be further from the truth”, stated Ms. Dunphy, “Price being hiked for Brides To Be is an unethical and wrong business practice but is less frequent than it would have been in the past. The vast majority of practicing makeup artists in Ireland are today professionally trained and are cogently aware of the financial burdens placed on couples getting married. Makeup By Gillian, for example, offers special rates to anyone getting married”

She noted that the Internet had played a major role in making the wedding sector more competitive for service providers and customers.

”The internet has allowed customers to discover these special offers and to compare one service over another. This can only have positive consequences for the sector as it too attempts to devise business strategies in response to the current economic downturn”, Ms Dunphy concluded.
