    Hi, I bought the hair extentions at a beauty store that we have here in Northern Alberta called Sally's beauty supplies. There were also at a few other hair salons that I saw hair extensions at. I know Jessica Simpson has a hair extension line. I am sure if you drop by a nice hair salon they should have something. I think there are a couple different type you can get, synethic and real human hair, the ones I bought were the human hair and the brand was named euronext collection. I am definatly not a hair extension expert by any means. My hair is longer to begin with but when you curl it, it gets a lot shorter and I always wanted really long hair for my wedding. The hair extension kit that I bought had 10 pieces which inluded a 8 inch weft, a 7 inch weft , a 6 inch weft, a 5 3/4 inch weft, 4-1 1/2 inch wefts and 2 one inch wefts for color testing. The lady at the salon only used the 8 inch weft and the 7 inch weft. I bought a colour that was the closets to my hair color but about a week before I left I was getting my hair coloured anyways so I brought in the extension kit and the match up my colour to the extension colour, my hair was originally similar to the extensions so it was nothing too drastic.

    I was somewhat please with them at first they looked great but by the time I got back to my room and was about to leave for my ceremony we had to re-curl the ends. I found the ends didn't curl as well as I wanted them to. And I actually pinned them up a litttle before our reception cause the curl was really coming out. I am not sure if this was due to the humidity or the amount of hair spray that was weighing them down or the brand of extensions.

    I had a friend that got married last year and she bought a synthetic brand extension and her curls never came out, hers we also not as long as mine were either. My suggestion to you would be to test them out first before your wedding day or talk to the salon about a good brand. I never did now wishing I kind of did.

    It won't let me unload upload pictures. Can I e-mail you some pics of the hair?

      Thanks Crazykat! Just emailed Rocio and told her menu 12 but with cheesecake instead!
      One more decision made and off my list! :):)

        CrazyKat, I would LOVE to see pics (sent you a PM). Thanks so much for the info, it is soooo helpful, I think I will def sign up with a salon to find out more. I have always dreamt of long luscious curls too, my perfect wedding hair would be a brunette version of this: Click the image to open in full size.

          I have been having that HARDEST time trying to get ahold of Rocio since the middle of April. Has anyone been in contact with her??
          I'm trying to book my date, she said we couldn't book until the beginning of May, and now it's May and she won't respond to any of my emails.
          Not freaking out too bad, but my save-the-dates are on hold for production until I can get a response..... :*(

            Hi, Rocio has email me and I need to pick where I want to have my private reception. I know there is two places to hold it. Do any of you recommend one over the other. Colonial/Kantenah side or the White Sand/Riviera?

            Thanks

              Mine was at the White Sands and that one has a really nice view. I think the one at the the Colonial/Kantenah doesn't have as nice as view. Where are most your guest staying?? If you PM me with your e-mail address I can e-mail you pics of what the White sands private reception looked like set-up.

                Hi, I was hoping someone would be able to help me... I have not yet picked our resort for our wedding but we were looking into the Grand Palladium in Mexico and it looks great!

                I can't seem to find anything about weddings online or contact information. Does anyone have a contact for the WC there?? Thanks!

                  You can contact Rocio, I am not sure if she has a wedding package of information for 2011 (if that is when you are getting married??). I am sure she can send you the 2010 wedding information package. If not you can PM me your e-mail address and I can send you the 2010 wedding package that she gave me.


                  Here is a website also that pretty much has all the information in the wedding package just in a different format

                  Hope this helps

                    Question for you brides who got married at the GP in Riviera Maya...

                    Did you have to be there 3 or 4 business days prior to the wedding?

                    Rocio told me 3 days... but my travel agent is telling my 4 days...
