How much did your hair and makeup cost?

Recommended Posts

I just asked my WC for quotes on hair and makeup. I expect that I will probably have to pay a little more since my ceremony involves taking a 45-60 minute boat trip to the site, and the stylist would have to make the trip with us. I also want a trial, since I think I will be picky with my hair, but also because I don't wear makeup and know that it will take some work to get it right (though I may back out and just have a friend do makeup). But I want my hair done by someone who knows what they're doing, for sure!

 

So anyway - how much did you girls spend for a trial, and day-of hair do? And what else did it include, if anything (makeup, accessories, etc.)?

Good question Ann! I need to know this too. I'm thinking of maybe doing my own makeup also. I would hate to look like a clown on my wedding day.

I spent in the neighborhood of $200 when you add in tax and gratuity, for hair and makeup both. No trials though. More than I wanted to pay, for sure, but I also didn't want to go cheap on it and hate the photos forever.

 

My bridesmaids all did their own makeup and my sister even did her own hair and they all looked great.

Tammy I still think that's a lot of money for makeup...I don't know maybe I'm wrong and besides it is your wedding so splurge, aslong as you love it in the end than that's all that matter

I'm just going to do my own makeup, and hope that my hair dresser comes down for my wedding - that way I have more control over my look than I think I would have if I went with the resort

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
