What do you want to know from us Married Gals?

This is something I have been a little stressed about. Did you girls get your hair/make up done at the salon at the resort? Or go offsite? Or what?
I want to look my best on this day, of course, so I am stressed about getting hair and make up done in another country. This is one of the main things I stress about when it comes to not having my wedding at home.
I am taking a course in personal make up, to help me out a little, but I am afraid I will be too nervous to do it myself. I also have 2 bridesmaids who are hair dressers, but I am worried they will be to stressed to help me as well. lol So, please tell me what you guys did and how it worked out for you.

This was my biggest concern as well. I highly recommend doing a trial when you get there (before if you're going to do a site visit).
I went to the salon - I knew I would need to be away from the group for a breather. One of my bridesmaids went with me. That worked well for me as the salon was just a few miles away from our hotel - it's your call, though. My schedule was:
10:00 - brunch with bridesmaids
11:30 - hair at Hive
1:00 - makeup at Hilton (plus I ordered some food)
2:30 - back to Casa del Mar to get dressed
3:00 - met photographer
4:00 - wedding
This schedule worked perfectly. I was running early the whole day so I never felt rushed.
I had Hive do my hair. Didn't love them. We had to do two styles at the trial and then a different version on the actual day because what they had settled with wasn't going to hold. IMPORTANT - don't let them take your hair down after the trial. Wear it and make sure it doesn't hurt and it holds.
Go to the recap section to see which brides had good luck with their hair. Mine was fine, but I wouldn't recommend Hive. If Bambi had done my hair, maybe it would have been better, but I've heard too many stories where she's the person you're appointment is with but then she doesn't show up (that's what happened to me).
Makeup - I had the spa at the Hilton do my makeup and they did a GREAT job. Take a few pictures so they can see what you're going for. Also, remember that it might look heavier to you than it does in the pictures. Oh - and, upon their recommendation, I brought my own false lashes that they put on for me. I very rarely wear them, but it made a total difference in the pictures.
