    Hair and Makeup by Barcelo Spa :

    Not the greatest picture, but the only one I have from our TTD session taken on my sister's iPhone. Will give you some idea on service from the Barcelo Spa but I will post more pictures and full review when I get my pro pictures :

      Adrian is a professional makeup artist from Texas now living in the Riviera Maya. His work is amazing and he uses airbrush foundation.

      If you book him he will come to the hotel before the wedding and do a trial hair and makeup run, and will then come to your room again the morning of the wedding. It was lovely and relaxing instead of going to the spa. Adrian and his team came the morning of our wedding and we opened some bottles of champagne and later that morning ordered room service, we were playing music and chit chatting and it just takes away the nerves of sitting in the spa with a stylist who doesn't speak english.

       

      Adrian's website is

      I keep hearing people mention Adrian and his team for hair and make up. Who is that and does he have a website or something so that I can find out pricing?

          As Brenners said, I think this could all be easily be booked with your w/c ahead of time, I however waited until I got there. I planned to book my mani/pedi the morning of the wedding but my w/c recommended doing it the evening before, which worked out well for me and the morning of the wedding more relaxed. We booked our couples massage when we got there also as we didn't know our schedule for excursions and stuff, so booked a late afternoon right on the beach. And for the hair and makeup for the TTD day, that was also booked when I got there. But if you know what days and times you want for everything I would go ahead and schedule that with your w/c now. I will add though that the salon never seemed too busy and always appeared to have staff waiting and ready so if you decide to change your days I don't think it would be an issue.

            We actually bought our maraca's with us rather than buy down there. I wanted the large ones and I heard they were $3 each down there, and I was able to get them here for $1 each. Plus I had made tags for each one so I was able to attach them here before we left. They were very light so didn't way down bags, but they did take up a bit of space. We had 6 of us on the same flight (including a 2 year old) and had one checked bag each and one carry on each that we had FILLED with the heaviest items, so between us all we only needed to check one extra bag.

             

            We got large yellow ones to match our color theme and they had 'Mexico' written on them :

             


            Has anyone had experience getting flameless candles or maracas while in Mexico before the wedding? We've heard it's better than packing it all there, but I have no idea where to find such things, and don't want to get ripped off!!

                  We got the maraca's from a party supply store online. I can't remember the name and I didn't save the website URL but I will see if I can find it from my bank statements and I will get back to you.

                    We booked all of our appointments in advance, however one of them wasn't actually made with the spa (wedding day one!). Luckily they fit us in, and didn't even tell us until afterwards, so we didn't panic.

                     

                    I don't have many photos yet, I'll post some better ones as they show up!  I can't seem to find a straight on picture anywhere!

                     

                    Here's my hair.  My friend and bridesmaid made me the hair vine, it was so pretty.
