I am planning a wedding at Couples Swept Away for July 2011!!! Im so excited but am trying to find more information on the beauty services that they provide! Does anyone have any pictures of their hair and makup done by the resort? Any advice would be so appreciated. Goodluck to all the FUTURE BRIDES =)

MrsLowUFO - I am May 5. I feel like it will be here before we know it!
JRs - There are pictures/reviews of the spas at Couples in the Couples Resorts Message Board. Have you been there yet? Lots of good info! I am planning to get my hair done at CSS for my big day. From everything I've read, they do an amazing job.

Iced Coffee: I have been all over the messgae boards and found some pics of peoples hair but have been unable to find any of the makeup. I want to see pics to decide whether or not I should do my own makeup or not.

JRs -I haven't seen any makeup pictures, either! I've read mixed reviews. I think I'm going to splurge on some nice makeup before I go and just do it myself!

Iced coffee- I feel the same way. I don't think anyone can do my makeup like I can lol. I think Im just going to go to like a MAC counter and get a makeover right before the wedding and splurge on some good makeup. As far as the pics Ive seen on the hair done at the resort, they all look very good. BTW when is your big day? Are you going to couples swept away 2? Im still trying to decide when to have the ceremony, I swear everyday I wake up I change my mind on the time. I just don't want it to rain since I am playing so much for a photographer to take beautiful pictures. ALso, any thoughts on "trash the dress"???

I am going to go to sephora and have them do my makeup and then buy the products that they used. (my son gave me a 75.00 gift certificate for there I am sure that will cover an eyeshadow lol), I have no idea what look I even want at this point. I am taking my son's gf and she will do my make up for me when we are in Jamaica.
I had planned on doing TTD the next day but my photographer would require me to pay for her hotel room (couples has a 3 nite minimum, so they would have to stay somewhere else) and then couples was going to charge me on top of the already 500.00 vendors fee an additional 100 per photographer to come back the next day. So I have decided just to have a few shots done in the water right after the cocktail hour. I wish I could afford to have her come back the next day so I would not feel rushed but its not in the budget.

I am doing my ceremony at 10am, since it seems like the least chance of rain and it's only my fiance and I so I don't have to worry about guests not wanting to wake up early. I read somewhere that the sunset ceremony is not worth the extra $. JRs...I am not sure what to tell you! It seems like the most popular slots at 10am, 11am, and 4pm.
My wedding is 5/5/2011 at CSS.
SunStarsMoon - You will be able to get more than an eyeshadow for $75! I love makeup (and I buy the good stuff, lol) and you will be able to buy your whole "face" for that much. That was a nice gift!
I am still unsure about TTD. I am totally up for it, but I think I might be self conscious of my dress clinging to me. Lol. That probably sounds weird, but it's the only thing holding me back. I'm not exactly a 0! My photographer would be willing to do some TTD shots, so it's just up to me and what I decide.
