I think getting an older bridesmaid to carry or hold hands with the little one is a great idea, kids are too unpredictable!
Haha, I feel ya on that. Rebecca did mine too! She was a pleasure to work with. I figured for the hours I would have spent on PowerPoint it was money very well-spent!

Congrats on the early planning! I'm impressed!

We are going to book either Ivan Luckie or Sascha Gluck.

Is Fernando the makeup artist? (not familiar with the name)

Hang in there....I was nervous about booking too and then it all worked out! I now have my dress, my BM dresses, my photographer, make up artist and my shoes! I'm working on my flowers.....I hope the time goes by fast smile123.gif

Thanks! I hope I don't regret doing anything too early! Yes, Fernando is the make-up artist and he brings alongs someone to do hair. I've read rave reviews about him. Keepin' my fingers crossed I'm making all the right decisions! :)

We've visited the Mayan Riviera twice before. The 1st time we stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal and fell in love with the Mexico. So, when we got engaged we knew we wanted to go back there to get married. So this past March we booked another vacation to check out the resort. I'd done some research on the internet to find the resort that suited us best and decided on the Barcelo Maya Tropical. The resort was beautiful and we were really happy with our choice. I couldn't imagine booking a wedding there unless I visited it and I was so happy we did. The wedding co-ordinator met us and spent about 2 1/2 hrs with us. She took us all around the resort on a golf cart and showed us all the different areas we could choose for the ceremony and the reception. We decided on the Barcelo Palace Gazebo (if you're not staying at the Palace there is a charge to have the ceremony there) and for the reception we chose the Palmeras Grill. An open air restaurant just off the beach. Anyway, if you decide to do a pre-trip it's well worth it. Really sets your mind at ease. Couldn't be happier with our selection.
Totally agree with you on this. After my menu sampling and site inspection trip, I turned into procrastinating mode! kekeke

Fernando is a very popular makeup artist in the area. He has a website, and very good reviews from all the previous brides who worked with him. His works on caucasian brides look amazing! However, I have seen some of his work on asians brides...and ...hmmm...I don't see myself look like a thai hooker in Hollywood movie on my wedding day. The price is around $300 for a trial plus the makeup on the day. Another problem is my resort would charge me $350 for bringing Fernando in.
That is why I am looking into the Waves Salon.

LOL! i was thinking kinda the same thing! Beautiful Caucasian brides but drag queen-y Asian brides....I think it's our eye lids and eye shape in contrast with the makeup application style.

How is the makeup at Waves Salon?

I'm now playing with the idea of doing my own makeup....that vendor fee @ the royal is too expensive!

Yes, it is our eyes shape. We don't have the folds and creases like the caucasian brides, so smokey eyes on caucasian brides would look like panda eyes on asians brides.
I am waiting for Lindobride's review on Waves Salon (she will have her trial this month), because it is much more relax to have someone to do the hair and makeup on the day then trying to DIY (of course, if you are a makeup artist, it is a different story). There are also my sisters, my MIL that need their hair and makeup done too. It is just much easier to do a group package deal, and everyone is chill and happy.

One thing I should note, Waves offers airbrush makeup, that doesnt move or melt during the day, which is a plus for me. I have oily oily skin, and with 35C and 70% humidity outside, you can fry an egg on my face after 1 hour in the sun. I guess I will make sure to tell my makeup artist that I want to look very natural and neutral with my makeup and not like a 1980 asian movie star.
