    whoa so many new LC brides all of a sudden, or maybe you all are just in the midst of planning your weddings

    looks like Ann answered the firedancer time question, which was a wayyyy better answer than I would have had because I zero knowledge of the time on my wedding day!

    as far as getting ready at the hotel or LC....depends on what you want to do honestly. I spent the entire day at LC and left at 9am to go over there. there is no way i would have wanted hair and makeup done then. if you are maybe not planning on going over for the day then getting hair/makeup at the hotel is possible but on the boat you will get pretty wind-blown i would imagine. when are you planning on heading over? with your guests or early in the morning?

      It looks like we make a great team then, cuz I was going to say the exact same thing about the hair. Most brides do head over early and spend the say swimming, relaxing, etc. and your hair/makeup might not last all day in the heat. Or even if you don't go over early, I don't know how hair would withstand the boat ride over. I would imagine that some have done it successfully though, so hopefully they chime in!

        just wanted to throw it out there that Fernando did my hair and it lasted through the boat ride home, it was crazy. I was up dancing on the front of the boat, wind blowing around like crazy and my hair still looked awesome by the time we got back to port. So I would think it would be possible to do hair earlier. However, I wouldn't have wanted my hair done before I went to LC. It would have meant i couldn't go swimming/lay on the beach all day! The morning of, relaxing at LC, is one of my favorite wedding memories.

          The reason that I ask is because we are doing a legal ceremony in the am. We wanted to have our legal wedding date be the same as our wedding at LC so we opted to have it done in the am on that day. Nothing special...we're thinkingof it as "taking care of paperwork". But I guess it would be nice to head over to LC early and relax before the ceremony. I'm wondering if i go early would i have to catch the tour boat that leaves at 9am or if i could leave later, say around noon. Any input?

            The only thing that is keeping me from booking hair and make up at Las Caletas is because it is really spendy. I mean, I am sure it is worth it.. but sheesh!

              Oh , yeah, that's another thing too! I think i can get hair and makeup done at my hotel for half of what they charge to do it at LC.

                Exactly my point! But I would hate to get it down and that have it look like HECK by the time we get there!

                  Yes it is a bit spendy, but if you use Fernando it is worth it! I took pictures of my hair and makeup with me of how I wanted it to look and he did an AMAZING job. He uses MAC makeup too. Also he goes to LC from Nuevo Vallarta so that is a pretty long haul just to get there. Yes it is spendy but in the end it was totally worth it, and the way I looked at it too was that it was my wedding day and I would only be doing it once!

                  ldeavila- I am sure you could get it done cheaper at the hotels but then you have to remember the boat ride over...could get pretty windy!

                    Fernando also did my hair and although it didn't really last the boat ride home (the curls starting falling out since I had it down) for me it was totally worth the $$. I agree with Tara that it was nice to be able to lounge around all day and not have to worry about ruining your hair. Plus, Fernando did an amazing job and I go so many compliments on my hair.
