NEW YORK, NY, October 31, 2023 – The Knot, a digital wedding planning authority and one of the largest Vendor Marketplaces in the US, announces the third installment of The Knot Drops. Launching exclusively on The Knot Vendor Marketplace, the campaign allows one lucky couple to win the opportunity to work with celebrity makeup artist and cover star of The Knot Magazine 2023 Fall Issue Alexx Mayo for their wedding. Widely renowned for his work with A-list celebrities, Mayo has years of experience creating iconic looks for Hollywood’s biggest stars. His recent feature in The Knot Magazine highlights his expertise in makeup artistry with a focus on inclusivity within the beauty industry. The Knot Drops featuring Alexx Mayo launches on November 2, 2023, at 10:00 AM ET. 

The winner of the Alexx Mayo drop will receive two complimentary, in-person makeup sessions: one prewedding trial and makeup on the day of the wedding. During the first session, Alexx will get to know the winner’s style, preferences, personality and wedding day attire. In the second session, he will travel to the wedding location to personally style the winner’s beauty on their wedding day. The Knot will cover all costs associated with Alexx’s sessions.

The Knot Drops is an exclusive offering only available on The Knot, bringing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for engaged couples to add celebrity professionals to their wedding vendor team. The Knot will drop acclaimed artists into its Vendor Marketplace, offering to-be-weds a limited-time chance to win A-list services. The campaign kicked off with celebrity fashion stylist Maeve Reilly in August, followed by hairstylist Kim Kimble in September, and continues with Alexx Mayo this month. 

“Hollywood stars and engaged couples alike love working with Alexx Mayo for good reason: He’s a creative genius.
