I spent 1000+. I did laser hair removal on underarms and bikini and that alone was over $1000. Not to mention the tanning and manis/pedis and makeup etc etc.

Wow! I love to hear about all the different treatments wink.gif Thanks so much for mentioning the MAC eyelashed Jacilynda and MarieSam. I think I will go with those because I know I will be in the water.

I choose $100-300; some things are regular, somethings were special...but all were for the wedding so I counted it...actually, when I added it up it cost more than $300 so...count me in the next category up.


$25- Whitstrips

$25- Fake lashes from Sephora (loved them! and used them for the AHR)

$100- Make up from MAC

$120- Clip in real hair extensions (also loved them and used them for the AHR)

$50- Manicure

$50- Pedicure

$100- Waxing (brows, brazillian, full leg and 1/2 arms)


= $470

I'm in the process of having painful laser tattoo removal. I got a butterfly tattoo on my left breast when I was 18... now that I'm 25 and getting married I think it's a bit too much. Plus I don't want to have to worry about covering up the tat with makeup (and it rubbing off on my dress). I'm down $780 so far sad.gif and I have more treatments to go!

I would have to say between $500-$1000


I need the usual hair manicure and fake nails as I don't have my own (bad biter), pedicure (real bad I have bad feet), extra lotion, highlights to hide the roots, trim, eyebrows, legs, shoes, new make, fake lashes, facial, Oh and I would love to have a massage the day of!


oops maybe a little more for extras ..... there is always something I have forgotten

Well I'm just at the beginning stages...so in a way I haven't spent a lot yet. No more than $50 on teeth whitening, but it would have been hundreds more if I hadn't worked there and got a HUGE discount. I'm also going to count this in my expenses--I have wanted these forever but decided I needed them for my wedding lol....boob implants-$4000.

So right now I'm probably around $4050...in the end I'll probably have my hair dyed or highlighted, mani/pedi

I'm guessing $300-500 for teeth whitening, mani/pedi, false eyelashes, tanning, etc. I am not including haircut and highlights, and those types of things I do on a regular basis anyways, just those "special day" pampering items. :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
