Excellence Bride Hair and Make Up Questions

Recommended Posts

I had a trial run of make up done when I went down to plan our wedding. It wasn't awful but I didn't like it and I definitely didn't think it was very sanitary. For example they used lip gloss right out of the container put it on my mouth and then took the same brush and put it back in the container. She didn't sharpen the eye liner before applying it and used the mascara wand out of the tube. I'm not sure if their standards are different there then they are here but for me that was just not going to work. One of my good friends who is coming is an esthetician/make-up artist and is doing my make up. Not sure about hair.

I don't usually like anyone doing my makeup for that reason..seems to always be like that. It helps that I worked at Chanel for over 6 years too lol, so I did my makeup myself. Hair was something I was worried about and for very little reason. They did an amazing job on my hair. My hair has never looked that nice, I couldn't believe how great it looked and the style held all night even when I gave myself highlights when I threw myself down in the sand!!! My bridesmaids loved their hair too. Dominicans are great with hair, there are so many dominican hair salons in NYC for a reason!! LOL, I would not worry at all. Just bring pictures of styles you like and they will do it the way it would look best on you.

    • 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.
