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.
That is a great question about what the plan is for the guests between the wedding and the cocktail hour, I was thinking they would all just kill some time at a bar as well. I just emailed Gabriela to see what she will do to help facilitate this. I will let you know what she says. As far as DJ Bob I am still working on my 15 or so songs to send over to him. He told me the same thing as he did to you about wanting to have flexibility. I also emailed him asking if he would have a large library so that if my guests want to request a song he would have a large number of songs to select from? I will let you know on that as well. That is great you are paying for your girls to get their make-up and hair done- very nice of you! I heard the same feedback on the make-up so I do not plan to use them for that only just my hair. Do you have a large group coming? I think I am close to 55 guests that are comfirmed. Can't wait!
