    Oh, Emily! That so sad! I'm so sorry :(

    I don't have any additional contacts for you. Have you thought about asking Adrian for a referral? They typcially all know eachother and might be able to give you a great suggestion.

      Do you have a price list for Sara?

      I have 6 BMs too. Did she offer a discount since there were so many girls?

      We are hoping to cover the cost for my BMs, do you mind sharing how much it was for everyone total?

      Did she charge a travel fee?


      You look stunning!! Wow.

      I should also mention - she uses MAC products! My face is very sensitive and her make-up worked great on my skin - no break outs or anything! Also - she applied lashes for me and they LOOKED great and lasted the whole night!

      Thanks for posting these pics!  Look look gorgeous.


      I will have 4 bridesmaids and myself. How long would you recommend it might take for hair and makeup, based on your experience with Sara and her stylist(s?)?

        what are all of your ideas on hairstyles? I can't decide to wear my hair up or down. Is it to windy to wear it down?

          Hi 11-11-11 Bride!


          There are a few things to factor in when deciding how to wear your hair on that big day...shape of your face, style of your dress and of course the weather.  Some parts of Cancun are windier than others.  1/2 up, 1/2 down is always good, you get the best of both worlds.

                    Hi ladies, I just joined BDW, getting married at Ceiba del Mar in May!  We just got back from our site visit, and I did a hair and makeup trial with Melissa V. Parry on Saturday, who was recommended by our coordinators (Tropical Wedding Experts).  She was fabulous -- very professional, detailed, and patient.  And (most importantly) I really loved the way I looked!  So if you are still searching, I'd definitely check her out www.cancunhairandmakeup.com
