Need help with how to get my hair/makeup done

Recommended Posts

I will be cruising and port in St. Thomas at that time we will be getting married in the morning. My only problem is I want to get my hair done and makeup. My WC on the island can do it but there really is no trial run since I port and then get married. I know I dont want to do it myself because I know I will do a horrible job. To those ladies who are cruising than porting what did you do or anyone have any suggestions? I know for my AHR I can find someone here to do my hair and makeup but no clue what to do for my wedding day.

Is there a salon on at the port or on the boat? I think a job is always best with professionals.

 

If not, and you have your WC do it, I would 100% have a photo of what you want. If you leave it up to a description, then she can interpret it differently than how you meant it, but a picture shows exactly what you want.

 

You can also have your make up done professionally at a make up counter and have them take the photos of you, this way you can purchase the colors that look best on you and provide them to the WC with a pic of you wearing it. Most times this is free if you purchse x dollars of stuff from the counter.

I will also be cruising and having an on island wedding in St. Thomas.

My WC suggested I book on the ship with the salon as soon as I board. I am going to try and speak with the hair dresser a day or two before, maybe even a trial run. As for makeup, not sure if they do it on the ship, I still have to look into that. If not, I will be going to a makeup artist for a trial, maybe even lesson...if it's simple enough maybe I can pull it off myself.

My WC told me most of the on island hair dressers and makeup people want you to book a room in one of the hotels to get ready, which I really don't want to do for just an hour.

 

I'm sure if your package includes hair and makeup, they are reliable people, but you may want to get references, or pics of their final work.

I absolutely agree that you should have pictures of exactly what you want either way!

I agree with Erika. I would say get a trial hair and makeup run at home and take tons of pics. That's what I'm going to do for my hair at least. For my makeup I'm going to get a makeup lesson at MAC (take a million pics) and then buy the products and do my makeup myself. Have you ever thought of doing it that way? Or getting a friend or family member watch the lesson and do it for you the day of your wedding? That way you can practice in advance and make sure that everything will be perfect!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
