    I did a trial at home and hated the way it came out. So I found a picture I liked and gave it to them at the resort when getting my hair done and she did a beautiful job. I loved it. I didn't do a trial at the resort. I also did my own make-up. If you know what you want they do a great job copying it. They do alot of updo's.

      Thank you! I do have a pretty good picture of what I would like to have and I think it is pretty simple so I may skip the trial!

        I agree with Tracy- they are good there at duplicating a picture. If you have a picture, I don't think you need a trial. I had my makeup done there also, and they did a good job-you don't have anything to worry about! :)

                But anyone have their make up done?

                  I'm not sure if Elizabeth Medina posted these pics of a wedding at EDR yet. I found them on her blog.........I think it was a pretty recent wedding. This couple was married at the Presidential Gazebo and had their reception at Tucanes. I know how we all LOVE pictures......so here you go.

                    Hi ladies,

                    I think I could use some of your expert advice....here it goes...
                    I booked my wedding a few months ago for next May at EDR. I visited the resort with my mom and sister. We loved it, BUT, our only reservation was the beach...its not swimmable. I decided to let it go because everything else about the resort is BEAUTIFUL (even though my fiance is also very much a beach/ocean person)
                    So, fast forward to about 2 weeks ago....my parents were in Riviera Maya for another wedding and visited EDR while they were there. When they came back, they told me that they were disappointed with the beach. (My mom has seen this resort before and knew this was an issue). So, then, I started rethinking everything. I started researching resorts AGAIN!! The last thing I want is for people to come all the way to Mexico for my wedding and feel disappointed that they can't go in the water.
                    Anyway, now, I found out that Karisma has a new resort opening in October...the Azul Sensatori, which appears to have a more swimmable beach and looks just as beautiful as EDR. The question is...do I switch resorts?? Am I being totally crazy A few things that the Azul has which EDR does not is that it is family-friendly, which means we don't have to worry about my fiance's 15-year old niece. Also, the price that the TA quoted me is about $70 cheaper per person. BUT, it is a new resort...so, who knows what can happen? It's run by Karisma and has the exact same policies and wedding packages as EDR, so I'm familiar with all of that.
                    I might even be able to keep my same WC. But, EDR is also very nice...I'm SO torn.....

                    Feels good to vent....any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!! :)

                      Got hair and makeup both done at EDR- and they did great with both! I believe a few girls, here, did their makeup through EDR and liked it- I def don't remember hearing any complaints! I was happy with mine....
