My mum, sister and mother in law all had their makeup done by the spa. I backed out last minute. I'm like @@JoannaBanana and I watched so many videos and learnt a lot about makeup so I did my own:

Do you guys have suggestions for makeup necessities? I bought the Kat von D shade and light contour and eye kit and some brow wiz, nars blush and bronzer but am unsure for foundation etc? Any tips are helpful I am a bit of a lost cause! Lol :)

@@nkavanaugh I have a pretty detailed list of what I used for my makeup in my review. Make sure you use some form of primer. In the heat and humidity primer is a must. I used smashbox photo finish priming spray, followed by Laura mercier foundation primer, and elizabeth Arden eye primer (urban decays eye primer is just as good), and then for foundation I just used I think it's Maybeline 3 in 1 foundation. I contoured and highlighted. Highlight I used Jaclyn hills champagne pop mixed with pearl from the paler she collaborated on with Becca (shimmering skin perfecter). I also used the blush in that pallet. It's a very shimmery pallet that gives a nice bridal glow. I did my eyebrows, eyeshadow, and used a gel eye line that was waterproof. I used Maybeline collosal mascara in waterproof. Then used Velour silk fluffed up false lashes. Make sure to finish off your makeup with some sort of finishing spray like urban decays all Nighter. It will prolong your makeup. My makeup looked great still when everything was over! Good luck!

Thanks for the makeup tips girls!! I appreciate them :) @@JoannaBanana I haven't heard of any of these new coordinators we have! I still haven't gotten a reply from mine so it seems like communication with Adriana was actually a little better. Past brides just curious did any of your guests end up in the rooms without the divider between the bathroom and beds?

I felt my communication slowed down some too haha! Sorry ladies!

No haven't heard of any of the new ones but I'm sure they are great

 

Yes we had guests without the divider and beware the list you send with room preferences isn't even looked at it seems. Rooms with 4 people got 1 bed etc. lots of hassles at check in and changing of rooms

Ah god I am sure check in will lead to me to have a small nervous breakdown then. Haha its bound to happen once. I personally don't care about the lack of divider but I know there is some people who will and I feel somehow responsible for everyone's happiness all week which is going to make things tough for me! Lol

The airport and check in was enough. I broke down in my room haha it's bound to happen as you said.

 

You aren't. We had some pretty big downers at our wedding. We let it slide off our back and let it be their issue. Enjoy your week! You picked a great resort. They got to see what it was about before they booked. Their happiness on vacation is their issue.

@@nkavanaugh my communications slowed down when Aranza was marked as my coordinator as well. But don't stress because once you get there and meet with them everything will go smoothly.

 

Like @@calgarybride2015 said, the room preference sheet isn't looked at. We requested 1 bed for all the single travelers and they all for 2 beds. One couple had to wait at check in for their room to be made up when we arrived and everyone's room but Kyle and I's had either frosted glass or an opening in the wall between the bed and bathroom. Kyle and I had a solid wall.

@@yycbride2016 Okay good to know I will try not to bombard her with emails, although it feels hard not to at this point. Lol

 

I have a few guests now commenting on the bathroom issue, which is a bit annoying because I am not sure what they want me to actually do about it and they knew this going in. Honestly being a people pleaser is just the worst sometimes. people are also trying to get rooms by certain people, etc. Our group is quite large at 103 people so requests are starting to overwhelm me a bit.

 

@@calgarybride2015 & @@yycbride2016 after you guys submitted all the paper work for music, guestlist etc was there much communication from them at all? I feel like there is still so much to figure out. Did you make spa appointments for your bridesmaids and yourself before you got there?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
