    Hi Ladies,

    Nicole at LC suggested I use "Fernando" for my hair and make-up. Does anyone have any experience with him? Any feedback would be appreciated!

      I don't have any experience with him, but it's who I will also be using for my wedding - in exactly 30 days : )
      When I spoke with Nicole last week, she highly recommended Fernando and a few of the brides in June and one in July had used him. He uses MAC make-up, too.

        Are you doing a trial ahead of time? I asked Nicole about it and she said Fernando works out of a salon north of Nuevo Vallarta and a trial run would be about $60-80.

        Since we're only going to be in PV for a few days, I hate to take time away from the guests to go up and have a trial run (plus spend the extra $$), but then again, I don't want crazy hair or make-up!

          No, I won't be doing a trial. Just going to bring a lot of pictures of what I want it to look like. I had done a trial with L'occocco back in April, but for good reasons, Nicole will no longer work with them. The trial went well and at least I have an idea of what will look good.

                I am thinking that a trail run would be worth the money...since it will calm one down!

                  I just booked a trial with Fernando. I am kinda nurveous though, maybe ladies who have already used him can comment - I would really appreciate that for my sanity, as my hair that day is very imporant.

                  Hi, for those ladies who have gotten married already, I just sent a deposit, only to find after the fact that when Fernando said that he has no other weddings that day that I misunderstood and infact, he has already booked another one some time ago.

                  Now my ceremony is at 2 pm, the other lady is on this forum and her ceremony is at 3:30. Mine is at Secrets Maroma and hers is at The Royal, PDC. We are both freaking out, I called him and he had indicated that this Saturday he has 3 and that this is typical. I just don’t know what to do, I thought I would splurge as hair is super important to me and now I am worried its going to be a rush job for multiple of what I would have paid else where.

                  Yikes this is just too stressful.

                  Thanks for all your input.

                    I just spoke to Fernando the other day and I had the same issue. Fernando felt really bad for having another wedding to attend to so he recommended his teacher to do my make-up instead. He assured me I wont be disappointed. Im scheduling a trial for the day before so I could have professional make-up and hair done for my welcome party. If it doesnt work out, then I will be out $150 and will just use the resorts salon for hair and make up.
