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.
Ah that's right. I looked at him a while back -- hard to keep it all straight.

I will definitely report back after the trial in two weeks and I'll try to post some pics!

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.
yes, panda eyes =) which is too bad because a smokey eye is very sexy.

you're right on the relaxation thing....will have to reconsider.....

airbrush makeup would be awesome. gives a really natural and flawless look. can't wait to hear more about this waves salon! i'm looking forward to hearing more about this!

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.
I really wish we could do a site visit but we just cant afford to go all the way to Mexico before the wedding it's to far away for us. So glad you are happy with your choice! We are also getting married at the Palace gazebo. I can't wait it looks just stunning.... thanx for sharing your info with us Barcelo brides that cant visit you have set my mind at rest we have defo made the right choice :o)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
