Another one.....for those that had the DJ....did you also have someone as your MC?  I know the DJ said they will announce for you (first dance etc.)....so do you really need an MC???

We are getting married July 14, 2012, and received all of our stuff from the WC.  Its finally sinking in now, I'm getting married!!  This is so exciting but a bit scary too!  It seems they are pushing the vendors they want you to chose otherwise there is an $800 outside vendor fee.  Any tips from AS brides would be appreciated!!!!

Hi MishMash!  I used the salon at AS and was styled by Edgar.  He did a WONDERFUL job and I didn't have a trial.  We met the moment of my appointment on my wedding day and he was exceptional!

Hi Ally!  One here!  :-)  As you'll read above, I used AS's salon for hair and make-up and was BEYOND PLEASED!  I really kind of let the hair and make up thing fall under faith after figuring out that none of our guests could help me.  Another bride PM'ed me about sharing a hair / make up stylist, but she never wrote me back, so I just booked an appointment in the AS salon and I am thankful I went that route.  I packed all of my MAC make up, flat iron, and curling irons in the event that I hated the results of the salon and needed to make my own "repairs" or "touch ups".  I didn't feel like doing a trial because it was more important to me to be with our guests the day before (and we also had our Welcome Cocktail Party the day before our wedding.)  I booked my appointment through the WC's and had no clue who I was going to be assigned to.  When I arrived at 1pm, I was introduced to Edgar.  I showed him two pictures of how I wanted my hair (a low messy chignon / bun) and he did a BEAUTIFUL job.  I also brought all of my MAC make -up, but he had his own and I believe he actually had better colors than I had in my own personal stash.  :-)  All I said to him was, "I'd really like natural looking make up," and he nodded and went to work!  :-)  All I had to do was wash and blow dry my hair the morning of our wedding, arrive at the salon with a clean face, and Edgar took care of the rest.  We just recieved our wedding slideshow this past Friday and our photog blogged us.  I will post more pictures when we receive our CD.  I have posted some photos of my hair below so that you can see Edgar's work. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received regarding Edgar's work on my wedding hair and make - up.  Everyone who has seen our slideshow always asks who did it and is impressed.  Ask for him and please tell him I sent you!  He is a Sweetie Pie!!!!

If I can make a suggestion for those concerned about fussy kids???  Just order them chicken fingers and fries through your WC.  They will add it to your detail sheet and you don't have to pay for it during your private reception.  We had 3 children at our wedding, order them chicken fingers and fries, and that was $70 plus dollars we saved on adult priced plates.  We didn't know this until we asked because we knew although they were 12, 10, etc.... they were not eating stuffed this or drizzled in sauce that. Just my two cents....

We didn't have an MC and I don't think one is needed.  Our DJ announced us, our dance, our father daughter dance, speehes, cake cut, garter / bouquet toss, cigar roller table, etc......

Thanks!

 

MishMash and Ally.... a few more things I forgot to tell you.  It took Edgar about 3 hours to complete both my hair and make up and I did feel rushed when I returned to my room to dress for our ceremony.  So please keep this in mind for timing purposes.  Because I was too lazy, hot, and excited to flat iron my hair, I had "BIG" hair the next morning for our TTD.  Lastly, although our wedding weekend was considered "booked" and one of the busiest of the year, there was not a soul in the salon except I, with the exception of gal that came in for a pedicure when I was almost finished. It was awesome to have the space alone to complete my cards and process my thoughts.  I appreciated the fact that they didn't "over book" or fill the place with clients.  BIG hair morning below (I felt like I was in the '80's with that hair during our TTD).  :-)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
