I am going to join my guests for the cocktail hour and then will have the DJ introduce us as well once we move into the resturant. We hired DJ bob ( I think you may have hired him as well?) and FYI- I introduced him to Gabriella and he is going to the resort today to meet her and check out the location, so that is great he will be prepared! Sounds like we are have similar plans for our weddings. What are you doing for your hair? I plan to use the Salon at the resort but I am a little worried still about them?
jwalkowiak - Oh, I'm so happy to hear that we have similar plans! I'm having a hair and makeup artist come to the hotel. I've heard the hair stylist is pretty good at the resort, but the makeup artist was not good. I was going to get everything done at the resort, but I couldn't afford to get hair/makeup done for the BMs which I was bummed about. I really wanted to treat them to something. But then I found Alexandro Zavala on the forum, so he's going to do our hair and makeup. He was actually less expensive than the resort for the bridesmaids so they're all going to have their makeup done. Here's his site in case you're interested, Alexandro Zavala - Makeup Artist Hairstylist - Cancn, Mxico
. And yes, I am using DJ Bob too! I'm so glad he's going to meet with Gabriela! He hadn't mentioned that to me. Are you picking a lot of songs you want played or are you leaving it to him? He told me to send 10 songs and he would take care of the rest, which kinda freaked me out a bit in case we didn't like his music. But he said I can send as many songs as I want, but he does need the flexibility to play some of his songs to keep the crowd going. He sent me a list of some typical songs he plays, and honestly, I wasn't a big fan of them, so I'm trying to think of as many songs as possible! What are your guests going to do in between the ceremony and cocktail hour? Gabriela told me she would take care of it, so I'm not sure exactly what that means. I think there's a bar near the beach that the guests can go to to kill some time before the cocktail hour.
