:)  Hope I helped!

I am getting married November 5th 2012 at dreams riviera. What hairstyle type is recommended for the beach at that time of the year? I'd like to leave my hair down and curled but i think it may be too windy. How well does the salon do hair there?

 Megan, your getting married right after me! I'm getting married on the 3rd. I have read that if you show them a picture of what you want they typically can do it and well. I am having a hair trail prior to my wedding day so I can ensure that I like it and it is exactly what I want. I haven't heard many negative things about the spa services. I am leaving my down and curly and hoping for the best!

I think you could upgrade the resorts videographer for 8 hours for like $2400...Mike was $2600 for 5 hours but the quality is soooo much better!

I just contacted him from his site... mikecantarellefilms.com  He also owns Cancunweddingvideo.com but that is a slightly different style.  The first website is more cinematography like.  :)  He was very prompt in responding via his website.

Thank you Lindsey!!!

 

hair: As far as hair goes im def. wearing my hair up i don't want to risk anything such as humidity, wind, etc. . i think its elegant & its SAFER. most people say they follow pictures pretty well & just to beware they use a LOT of hairspray so be aware of that.

 

im more indecisive about a veil i bought a cathedral type veil because I was nervous about a short one blowing in my face but im thinking of going "birdcage" now even though I havent seen any on destination wedding brides. is the birdcage look not beachy enough ?  any opinions ? anyone else wear a cathedral type veil on the beach, or birdcage ?
