We'll see, I just started planning so I could get overwhelmed and lazy... hee-hee!

    I think its also nice to have a little something from the country you're living in. Im in Korea, and was thinking about taking some stuff from here. You should take advantage of the cheapness that is china!

    I change my mind like you wouldn't believe so I could end up with the mother of all OOT bags yet.

    Did you chose a photographer yet? Im thinking about going with Moments that Matter.

        Hi Everyone

        This may have already been answered but to save me searching, has anyone had their hair and makeup done at the Cat?

        I've read a bit about the hairdresser but no mention about makeup.

        I had a trial done in the UK last week and she made me look amazing, there is noway i could do my makeup myself that well

        Thanks

        Sally

          Yep... I know the feeling. The list of items I have are over a page long. I have to start narrowing them down! Look at this list! I think I'm out of control...

          Hand sanitizer
          Sunscreen
          Can coozies
          Granola bars
          Ibuprofen
          Aloe
          Disposable Camera
          Picture of us
          Chocolate Kisses (with stickers on bottom – E & M 2.10.10)
          Candles
          Crackers/Cookies
          Ear plugs
          Eye masks
          Deck of cards
          Seed favors
          Tissues
          Candy – fireballs, Tootsie Rolls, Laffy Taffy, etc.
          Bottled Water?
          Hand Lotion (Bath and Body Works)
          Gum
          Manicure kit
          Luggage tags
          Mints
          Tea
          Chinese fans w/monogrammed “M” tag (to be used at the ceremony) Have someone hand them out.
          Map of Mexico highlights/Welcome Brochure
          Insulated cups imprinted with “Meyer Wedding 2010”
          Shot glasses with “Meyer Wedding 2.10.2010”
          SPECIAL BAGS for kids
          Crayons
          Toys
          Inflatable beach balls/rafts

          I know... over the top huh?!?! It's fun coming up with the ideas... now it's time to cut the list in half. If I don't do that I will be buying an extra seat on the plane for the "OOT" bags!!! :)

            We visited Korea in January and it reminded me of China. I bought quite a few souvenirs. I have been buying post cards from every place we visit and I plan on making one of those postcard guest books. Having all the guests fill out one postcard each and then having them bound into a book so we can always remember it!

            I haven't even looked into Photographers yet! The girl that is doing our engagement pictures was asking if we had a photographer yet for our wedding. I would love to bring her but it would be too expensive b/c she requires us to pay her way + photo packages. As far as make up/hair goes, I haven't even looked into that either. OMG.. I have a lot of planning to do! Yikes!

              Meyerbe, Dont worry. My list is just as long...lol. I could imagine how much luggage I am going to have :)

              CatBride09 - I have asked the same question, but I haven't heard of a single member who have used them for makeup I'm going to take my chances anyway cause I stink with putting on makeup and so do all my friends..lol...I'm just planning on taking pics for reference so she knows the look I'm going for.

                Hi Everyone

                I have been in touch with a lady called Doranna (found her
                recommendation on this site) she sounds really nice and the pictures of
                the hair and makeup on her website look amazing.

                I am definitely going to book her.

                Doranna Hair Stylist - Freelance Italian Hair Stylist - Playa del Carmen - Riviera Maya - Cancun - Tulum

                These are her latest prices (Based on RM)

                HAIR

                Bride 200 USD.

                Bridesmaid 95 USD.
                (discount for group)

                MAKE UP ( by Olivia)

                Bride 150 USD

                Bridesmaid 95 USD


                Also I emailed a lady on tripadvisor who has recently returned from her
                wedding at the Cat. She has been soooo helpful.. here is some info she
                gave me:



                * Photographer/Videographer she used Mexican Wedding Photos & Videos | Wedding photographers

                * She hired the PCB. The cost was per head for the meal (e.g $55 per
                person for Mexican buffet) this cost included all drinks (3 bartenders),
                hire of the venue until 10.30pm and decoration of the venue.


                * A DJ is $100 per hour, she did not have a DJ but instead took her own
                cd's and hired the music equipment ($40/hr) and a microphone ($30 for 30
                mins).

                This info may already be on here but it saves having to search through
                the pages.

                Hope that a helps

                Sally

                  OMG!!! Those prices for hair/make-up and ridiculous! I think I will do my own for that price! Why so much? What does that include? Okay, I'm going to check out her website.

                  Thanks for the info! I had no idea this stuff would be this expensive! Yikes!

                      I paid around $75 for my hair. She came right to my room, too. I have had many updos & I thought she was great.

                      I posted her info in this thread somewhere.
