yup 85 sounds about right. When I got married in 08 it was $85... and yes, I thought it was worth it. Although unconventional on how they got my hair to the position it was in, it held up ALL day and then I was able to use it for my TTD the next day as well.

 

Just make SURE you bring pictures along. They do not speak English very well at all and so communication is very difficult.

When I found out how much it was going to be to go to the spa for my hair as well as my bridesmaids, I nearly fainted. lol.

 

Thank heavens my FI thinks on his feet. Didn't even occur to me that we have 2 stylists in our guest list coming with us! He just asked them if they'd do our hair and they were thrilled... he surprised me with it. What a relief!

 

We're leaving in 11 days! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I was orginally going to get one of my gf's to do all our hair..(she's a hair dresser) But then she went got pregnant, and now can't fly..sad.gif That's the third person who got preggers, and couldn't come.. one was a bridsmaid, and the other, the MOH!!! haha

 

I'm scared to pay that kind of money, and it not look good, or not hold the curl.. I want my hair half up, and curled. I guess, I just need them to know that my hair is naturally curly, and goes frizzy really easy!! lol

 

I'm going over to one of my bridesmaids house next week, to play around with it.. Hopeing for the best!! I totally trust her, so I think that might be the best bet!!

 

Good thing my sister in law is a make up artist!!! haha

We got our marriage license as well as our legal ceremony is in 10 days here at home. Now we're officially ALLOWED to be married! Wahoo!

 

FI also got me some blue ribbon for my corset back in my dress... I thought it might look cool to have that as a contrast. He went into Fabricland for me. THAT is LOVE!

quick question about ceremony music for those who brought their own.

 

i was told we need 4 songs for the ceremony...but i didn't think about what would be played before or after? we are most likely not having live music.

 

do they supply the music, or should i bring that too?

 

thanks!

Don't get completely set on how your hair is going to be.. I did.. then the day of the wedding it was soooo windy so i couldn't do it how i wanted to do it.

i also emailed you some documents about restaurants for coba etc and the bouquets so
When paying for the booze for the receptions, pick the leat expensive option. They used a bar by the pool for us, so even though we bought the least expensive package, they still made us different drinks cause they had the booze there. Dont spend money on the other packages. There are other bars close too!

I used five songs. One for when my guests were seated. Everyone hung out at the 24 hour snack bar until the coordinator told them to walk down... and so they played that song and everyone sat down.

Do I think it was necessary... no. I don't think anyone paid any attention!
