Hi Jess! I was just admiring your slideshow (again)! I know--isn't it fun to have two weddings? My wedding in Cabo was a little bit stressful (long story). So I am really looking forward to our legal wedding and honeymoon in Hawaii.

Did I miss your review and photos?

 

It was really nice to have a private legal ceremony with just the two of us...I'm sure you'll enjoy it too. I hope you will share some pictures!! Dorys Foltin's website looks really nice.

Jessalyn,

 

My review is the Jtds2713 Cabo Wedding Review. I have not received my photos from Juan yet (being patient here...). I did not really relate the stressful part of my wedding-- too personal for a public forum. Some guests had misbehaved but not during the wedding but the day before. It affected me so didn't really sleep well the night prior to the wedding and I was tired during wedding day. So I am repeating the wedding! Haha!

I thought I remembered reading your review, but didn't remember the stressful part.....I think we all have some level of stress during our wedding(s)...mine was a finger that needed stitches...ha! I'm sure the private second ceremony in Hawaii will be much more relaxing!! I'm jealous...I want to go back to Hawaii!!

 

We need to tell Juan to hurry up with your pictures.. :) ...he is a very busy man!!

Hi Jessalyn,

Had to run out yesterday to pick up someone. Yeah, I am being patient about my pictures. He said he is doing the best he can. No worries here though. As long as they are beautiful. Oh well, at least I have the Hawaii legal ceremony and pictures to look forward to! I knew about your finger. YOu seemed cool about it. I would have panicked! I love your wedding pictures. You looked amazing! Jonathan did a wonderful job!

Hi Hawaiian Bride,

 

I can't give a review of Jacque Rojas yet. Our legal ceremony is in August 7, 2008. One of the reasons I picked Jacque was because she uses make-up from different lines (Make-up Forever, Clarins, MAC). Dorys I think uses her own line. Jacque also does a lot of the make-up for fashion shoots (Pacific Rim magazine, Modern Luxury Hawaii). Dorys is mostly weddings I believe. We will be shooting outdoors a lot (7 hours!) so I thought Jacque would be better for me. I will be able to give a better review after the wedding.

Here's my review:

 

I seriously want to cry everytime I think about the experience that I had.

 

So I read all these great reviews of Dorys everywhere, like 50 of them, I had not seen a single bad review of her...

 

So I scheduled and did a trial... no problems.

 

Big day arrives... Dorys was supposed to do makeup & hair on me and one BM. Her assistant was supposed to do makeup and hair for two BMs. We talked about how I needed to be finished first by so and so time so the photographer could take my getting ready pictures- and she agreed. I emailed her again a few days beforehand to remind her.

 

Her assistant was slow, and ended up taking the entire time (almost 2 hours) working on one BM, so Dorys did my hair, then ended up switching to do the other two BMs hair. By then we were running really late, and I told her that the photographer had to go downstairs in 15 minutes. She said "Ok, so what does that mean?"

 

UGH!

 

To make a long story short, she had to rush to finish my makeup and hair. The photographer had left and I didnt get take any getting ready pictures.. which makes me really sad. She probably spent a total of 30-40 minutes on me, which was upsetting because I paid her $150 to do my makeup and hair and $100 per BM- and one BM got worked on for almost 2 hours!

 

She let me check my hair in the mirror before she sprayed my curls in and I noticed that a lot of hair wasn't curled so I had to tell her two times to re-curl those areas... By then, it was almost time so she quickly sprayed it even though I wasnt happy with it. I feel like if she would have spent the hour or so that she was supposed to on me, my hair would have held better during the rest of the day. Instead, it went flat in less than an hour!

 

Also, she glued on my eyelashes in 3 dots rather than gluing the entire lash... so one fell off after I cried. Luckily, one of my guests had glue to fix it.

 

My makeup was good, but my hair didnt hold for more than an hour... but the worst part is that I will not have any getting ready pictures. =( I can never do this day again so it just makes me really sad when I think about it.

Oh dear... So very sorry about your experience with Dorys. I know what you mean when you say a wedding comes only once and this day will not come again. I had the same experience, I was crying a lot the day before wedding due to some incident with someone in our party and on the day of our wedding, I did not like my make-up because we ran out of time and we rushed the make-up. My hair was beautiful but I am obsessed about make-up! Then my photographer was not able to do those bridal silhouettes of me (we all forgot!)

 

Perhaps you can have a wedding vow renewal someday and you can wear your wedding gown again and have getting ready pictures? We are having a legal wedding in Hawaii and I am wearing my gown again. But I will probably not have getting ready pictures but I want those bridal silhouettes!!!

 

And I am sure your wedding was beautiful and you were beautiful on your wedding day. All brides are!

 

Best to you!

 

Jess

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
