Another Las Caletas Wedding Review - Raisinblur, May 24, 2008

Recommended Posts

Congrats! You have been married 2 days longer than me! Your wedding looked very nice. We had rough water too, except we were in a sailboat. Las Caletas is great. Our mic kept going out and our guests could not hear anything over the water. Brad stood right next to us and DH and I made up words sometimes because we couldn't hear him over the water. Our life together since we got together has been nothing but crashing wave, never anything smooth, so it was almost fitting in a weird way.

 

I'm totally jealous you got your video already. DHL attempted to deliver mine today, but I wasn't home. Hopefully they come by tomorrow, otherwise it will be Monday and I'm out of town all next week. I'm gonna have to wait more than one week to see it. EEKK the excitement, I want it now!

Hair/make-up Review, Fernando of Stylo Estetica in Bucerias

 

I had a local PV stylist come over to LC to do my hair and make-up. Kelley recommended him to me. It worked out great because his salon was about a 5 minute cab ride from our hotel, which was convenient because I had to go to his salon for my trial the day before the wedding.

 

To be honest, after the trial, I was a little nervous because I was not crazy about how my hair or make-up turned out. My hair looked a little bit sloppy, and my curls flattened in like, an hour. My make-up was ok. And I had a hard time communicating with him, because he only spoke a little bit of English, and my Spanish is pretty much non-existent (even after 3 years of Spanish in HS!).

 

But… day of the wedding, I ended up being really happy with the way my hair and make-up turned out. I think he was just a lot more careful because he was doing it “for real”. The lighting in the LC casita was also much better than in his salon, so I think that helped too. (Natural light at LC vs the artificial lights in his salon.) I didn’t look too made-up, which was exactly what I was going for.

 

Be warned about the humidity though! My hair is very straight, thick and heavy and with the humidity and everything, my curls got flat by the end of the night. I think it still looked ok, but I would have liked it to stay more curly. Fernando said that he used a really strong hair spray to get my curls to stay longer, and it helped a little. But with my hair being so thick and heavy, I don’t think there was anything Fernando or I could have done, except maybe pick a different hair style (like an all updo). So you may want to consider that. Or I could have tested more hair products beforehand to make sure they would hold up in very humid weather. That being said, I was still very satisfied with Fernando’s work and very glad I ended up hiring someone to do my hair and make-up. I was considering having one of my sisters do it (not pros at all), or doing it myself. In the end, I’m so glad I let a professional take care of it. The extra money was well spent to relieve the stress on that day, and it could have been a total disaster if I had to do it on my own.

 

Another thing to consider is if your future hubby has oily or shiny skin, you may want to think about having him wear some powder. I know it sounds kind of weird to put make-up on a guy (and he might object), but I think it would make a big difference in the pictures. We only realized this after I looked through all the pictures and noticed the “glow” on DH’s face. :-) Not a huge deal, but definitely something we would have done if we had known beforehand.
