ethnic brides past and present

Recommended Posts

Have you used or plan to use the hair stylist/make up staff at the Riu Ochi? If so, could you please post your pictures or give some feedback. My date is for 8/16/08 and my planned traveling stylist may not make it to Jamaica.

 

Thanks,

 

Netty

Thanks for asking this question.

I will probably go to MAC to get my make up and bring it down and maybe take a picture of my trial appointment, but when it comes to hair I really have no idea if they can do all types of hair.

 

I already have the pic of the hair style and will be sending it to them.

I'll let you know what they say.

Thanks Mich,

 

Yes, we needed this thread!! I'm blessed to have a friend here in Delaware who is a MAC Genius! She works for Mac but does work on the side. I have a couple of consultations set up with her and will purchase whatever products I need to take with me. Chandlyn at the RIU informed me that the girls are well qualified girls that she would use herself. I'm going to prep before going with my stylist and pray for the best. Hopefully this thread will flourish with some great pics and pointers.smile159.gif

Join the club! My stylist is not booked yet either! We had a misunderstanding or basic non-communication about what was expected as far as paying for her services. She just happens to be a relative who is also in my wedding party. I had not planned on paying her entire expense for travel, maybe half, but she thought I was going to do total. What arrangements have you made with your stylist?

One of my bridesmaids is of mixed ethnicity, and she was sooo happy with the way her hair was done at the resort! She always says no one in Canada knows how to handle her hair! wink.gif Her makeup was done by Nicole as well, she looked great, here's her pic:

Thanks for this thread bcuz my stylist will not be able to attend & I'm up in the air about letting someone from a resort do mine. My plan is to go to my stylist and take a pic of how I want my hair the day of my wedding. My MOH is going to go with me to see if she can help recreate the style too. But basically I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
