      Hi Nov2013maya,

       

      I used the hair and make-up services, both of which were provided by a gentleman named Fran who was fabulous! I showed him some photographs of what I wanted for my hair (on a computer so I could zoom in) and he did it perfectly. My only suggestion is to advise that you'd like your makeup to look natural. Someone posted that suggestion on this board before I was married, and it was great advice! I wanted a little bit of eye makeup with red lips, and Fran wanted to put black eye-liner on the upper and lower lids as well (to him I guess that was natural). He was really easy to communicate with though, and was happy to oblige and refrain from putting too much on.

       

      I would recommend using the spa services.

       

      Good luck!

      Koren

        This is such a good source of information when you have no clue what's going to happen the moment you get there, our wedding is in October 25, 2013 and still trying to figure out what kind of reception we would have. If the cocktail beach party is only $35/person we might do it. Sounds fun!!! I guess I'll have to ask my WC  the current prices though.

          Thanks so much for sharing. I am going to buy some primer and foundation to bring just in case they can't match my skin tone and I will have to hope for the best. I do want to look natural in my pics - just more polished. Has anyone hired a mobile makeup artist that comes to the room? Do you know if this is even allowed?? Just have to find my photographer and then I am set. Just got confirmation of wedding date today. Dec 3rd, 2013 at sunset gazebo :D yeahhhhh

                  My wedding is on Oct. 25th and I am using their photographer and the makeup/hair services... for what I've seen they do a really good job on it. You just have to explain them what's exactly what you need for your big day. I am so excited!!!!

                    ashofswed,

                     

                    I've been putting some thought into OOT bags. I'm not going bonkers like some brides who spend $50 per bag and fill it with stuff people don't need or want, but I do want to do a mini bag with a few things folks might forget and one signature item.

                     

                    On discountmugs.com, they sell the knock-off Tervis tumblers. I'm going to order those and then use a friend's cricut machine to put everybody's name on them. Dual purpose: Acts as a name tag so when guests who don't know each other see another guest with a matching cup, they will know they are part of our group, plus, it's a great way to keep either water or your drinks cool while at the pool or beach. :) And, of course, it is something they can take home and use.

                     

                    I'll probably go to the dollar store and throw some other things in there like chapstick (even if you brought one, who can't use another), a packet of aspirin, etc.

                      Nov2013maya,

                       

                      I would highly recommend using Del Sol Photography! We used them and they were awesome! One of the big perks is that you can purchase prints from them, or print them yourself when you get home -- they courier you a thumb drive with all of your photos on it. :)

                       

                      Cheers,

                      Koren
