Past Brided - What time did you get your makeup/hair done?

Recommended Posts

4 hours! that seems a bit long... wouldnt all your makeup be sweated (if thats a word) off by then smile36.gif

 

For me, Im gettin airbrushed makeup so it cant get wet and since its dead of summer and all the last minute running it might not look so good by the time the ceremony starts frown.gif

My ceremony was at 4 pm and I made my appointments starting at 12. I figured it would take 1 hour to do my hair and another to get the make-up done. Boy, was I WRONG!! It was all done in 45 mins!! So I was back in my room just after 1 with nothing really to do for a few hours. I guess i thought that it would take me longer, but it didn't. The timing all depends on how many people are getting their hair/make-up done.

My wedding is at 5pm and I just schedule my appointments today. Me, my 4 bridesmaids, my mother, and my FMIL are all scheduled at 1pm. I am hoping to be back in my room by 3 to finish getting ready and for them to get their makeup done and stuff. We are planning on starting my pictures at 3:30. I want to get some fun girl pictures in before the wedding so that is why we are starting then.

I made my hair and make up appointment before I go to the resort and it was 4 hours before the ceremony. That left plenty of time for before pics.

Autjo - how did you like your hair and make up that was done by the Dreams folks? You look beautiful in the pics btw but i just want to know if you had trouble. You mentioned you booked your appts before getting to the resort..how far in advance? did you do this through Rebeca? I think it will only be me and maybe my sis getting our hair and makeup done at the resort...so I don' t know if I will need 4 hours leeway time.

My ceremony was at 4pm and I booked myself and my lone BM for hair and make-up appts for 1200. It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would, so there was 2.5hrs to kill prior to the ceremony! It sucked - I was so bored and annoyed that I couldn't leave my room. I suppose it's better to have more time than run out of time though!

My ceremony started at 4, the team showed up around 11:30. 1 person for hair and 1 person for makeup. I had hair and makeup done, my mom had just make up done and my MOH had just makeup done.

 

They finished my hair around 1 and the two ladies makeup around the same time. I wanted my make up done later so she finished my makeup around 2:15. Problem is the photog got there at 2:30 and I wasn't ready for her to begin taking pics of me so she got a lot of "details" shots and went to my husbands room to deliver his gift and take shots of his "details" when she got back, I STILL wasn't ready for her to take shots of me. So I felt rushed and in hindsight, I should have had my timing better on the day of. She still got some preceremony shots in the room, but not around the resort like I imagined. So I would say 4 hrs before as long as it is not super hot, you don't want your face melting and your hair going limp. Fortunately it wasn't super hot and things worked out fine.

 

The reason I wasn't ready is because our 5yr old was in the wedding and she has a Lot of hair and I waited last minute to do her hair so that she wouldn't look crazy walking down the aisle lol. So if you don't have small details to take care of yourself 4 hrs. should be more than enough time. Just have the air on high so you don't melt. :)

 

Only snafu I had was that because I was rushing to get down the aisle (20 minutes late I might add) They forgot to attach my veil sad.gif. I didn't have it until later for professional pics. The hairstylist asked if I wanted her to attach it when she was done and I had the "brilliant" idea to wait. So I guess it was my fault, but my MOH was not on her toes, she should have noticed!

That's a lot of women, you might want to find out before hand how many people would be working on your group, just to be on the safe side. You don't want to be rushed or feel like they didn't do the best job because you ran out of time.

    • 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?
