There are so many details and aspects of a wedding, we could easily have done multiple weeks’ worth of posts! So today we’re doing double duty: the creative aspects, including design and beauty.

The Little Design Shoppe & Creative Co.

First off, Astoria-based design and creative company The Little Design Shoppe offers a range of services: from event design (planning, coordination/management, production, fabrication/rentals, setup, execution/breakdown) to custom stationary design (save the dates and invites, thank you cards, invitation suites, location maps, menus, etc). They are committed to telling your story through design, “one that embraces the life you lead.” Here are some examples of wedding work they’ve done!

Pineapple Street Designs

Another Astoria-based design company is Pineapple Street Designs. They focus on wedding stationary, with invitation suites, place cards, welcome signs, menus, table numbers and more! Check our their Etsy shop here, and examples of their past work below!

One aspect you may not typically think of as “design” is beauty! Makeup looks and hairstyles have to fit the aesthetic and day of the wedding, and luckily local makeup artists and hair stylists can help you achieve just that:

Willow House Beauty

Willow House is led by creative director and founder Michelle Schultz who has over a decade of experience as a makeup artist working in editorial, celebrity, and weddings. After doing 200+ weddings over the years she has witnessed that every couple is unique, including their beauty needs. As her demand increased in the wedding industry, she began to take note of its lack of inclusivity and diversity. One of their main priorities is creating a comfortable space for the LGBTQ+ community looking for beauty services. They do both makeup and hair!

Eden Di Bianco Beauty

Her practice is vegan friendly, and only uses cruelty free products, skincare, and brushes.

Marvin Alexander Beauty

Pricing is available on their website here.



I used Eden DiBianco beauty for my Queens wedding and I was thrilled. I really loved working with her throughout the whole wedding process, and having her and her team around the morning of my wedding made it so much better. S
