We are doing a symbolic ceremony at the Ellegance in Feb,..Does anyone know how the salon is with doing make up? I heard if you bring a photo for your hairtsyle, they are great at re-creating it, not sure about the make up though! I'm not confortable doing on my own or having any of our friends/family doing it.

 

Also..does anyone know if you have to pre book for these services, or just arrange once you are on-site?

From what I have heard, you should pre-book.  I have also heard that they are great at the hair (as long as you bring a photo), but the makeup is quite heavy and cakey.

 

I am going to go to a makeup counter (like MAC or something) and have them show me how to do it, so I can re-create it on wedding day, I am a little nervous about that, but I don't want to end up looking like a clown either.

I did the same with SEARS Clinique.  LOVED IT.  I brought my MOH and mom so that they could help me.  It's really not hard at all.  My only problem is eye shadow.  The $25 brush is expensive, but makes all the difference in the world.

My concern with getting my hair done at the salon is getting to and from the salon.  It's located far from the elegance club (from what i can see on the resort map).  I don't want to make the trek all the way across the resort and then all the way back to finish getting ready. I'm worried about the heat and humidity (don't want to be all sweaty!)  So i'm stuck too.  Do i risk doing it myself or just go on the journey of having them do it?  I'm having my future sister-in-law do my make-up, so I don't have to go for that.

@islandbride8 - I had my hair done at the spa a few weeks ago for my wedding (Colonial). They put so much hairspray on it that you don't have much to worry about. I was around the resort for the rest of the day (wedding and pics) and my hair looked great. I found the faster I walked, the more I sweated. If I kept my pace medium - slow, I didn't sweat or get over heated.

 

I went to the MAC counter and had them do a practice makeover. The consultant wrote down all of the steps (with what color etc) and also had a picture that she applied the makeup to. It was easy to follow. I am glad I did my own as you never know if you will like your makeup when you have it done at a salon.

bamcandr- All the papers I have that reference La Barcaza for the reception have *info available upon request.  They do list the information for other private receptions, so I would only assume this is more $$$.  La Barcaza is in the Elegance Club. IDK if you're planning to have any children attending, but this is 18+ only.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
