Anyone use Doranna DeBortoli and Fernando Fuentes???

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone used Doranna for their bridal hair and Fernando for their makeup.

 

I can't decide who I should use. My hair is very important to me so I thought I should go with Doranna and her makeup artist but then I remembered all the great reviews from past brides about Fernando's makeup and got confused. I do not know who Doranna brings for makeup and I do not know much about who Fernando will bring for my hair so I worry.

 

Do you think I should just hire Doranna for my hair and Fernando for my make-up? Do you think they would be upset if I didn't do both hair and make-up with the same company?

 

Please let me know your thoughts. I do not want it to be awkward on the day.

I can only speak for Fernando but I love, love, loved him. Would totally recommend many times over.

I dunno if they would get upset if you hired one for one thing and another for something else but it could get expensive, and I would tell them before hand just so everyone is clear.

Highly recommend Doranna! Wife's hair stayed regardless of heat + salsa/contemporary/tango first dance and 2+hrs of salsa dancing.

 

And our friend did my wife's makeup. They both worked together at the same time while I suntanned and had a beer. There were no problems.

Doranna has a partner Olivia that does bridal makeup and she uses quality products. Check out the portfolio on her web site to get an idea. Also email her and she will be more than happy to answer all your questions.

How did you pay Fernando? Did you have to send him a deposit before hand? I'm just curious as to how it works, if I end up hiring someone in Cancun rather than using my resort's spa for hair/makeup.

 

thanks!

HI ladies I just go back from my wedding and also can a test to how amazing Fernando is!! and his hair guy Gama - they were both amazing and so fun

 

When I paid him I sent to a deposit to his sisters house in Chicago. I had no issues at all. On the day of the wedding I paid him the rest in cash in dollars.

 

He really made my wedding day ;)

I've used both Fernando & Doranna...they do wonderful work!!!

 

I use Doranna more often, and she has an amazing understanding of HAIR! especially in that tropical climate.  I recommend using outside vendors if possible and if you do decide to go with the resort spa, then a trial is definitely a good idea, especially for the make up.

 

Have FUN!!!

Hi Rivierabride430,

 

I had the same problem with the website when trying to book Fernando for my July wedding. His email is: themakeuppros@hotmail.com Good luck with everything!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
