Natalie's incredible TTD slideshow has inspired tons of questions! I'm wondering what you do with regards to hair and makeup if you do it the morning after? Do you just get up and go? Sleep on it? Attempt your own? Get the professionals back?

I'm having Suzanne Morel do my wedding hair and makeup because I'm just not capable of doing this myself. But I don't want to go through it all over again in the morning.

Everyone who has done this so far and shared their slideshow looks absolutely gorgeous...share your secrets?

Is it just the "glow" from your wedding night...LOL!

sorry I'm always answering first LOL

I had so much hairspray in my hair the next morning (we met with our photographer at 9am) so I had to take a shower and put on my own makeup...though I think I still had eye liner on from the day b4....

I dont think you would want anything to elaborate...the more au natural look I'm assuming would be prefered. Myself I would, of course, use make up (because I never go without) but I would use make up with a "day" look with WATERPROOF mascara. Could you imagine a big wave....then black streaks?

 

If you didn't totally get submerged in the water like some of the girls have done and stayed rather on the shore/shoreline, a really smokey eye would be sexy. It would look like a I just woke up and rolled around on the beach with my sexy man. I think that would be hot.

 

Both looks are totally obtainable and you can do it yourself. Very easily!

I am lucky enough to be great friends with my hairstylist (she was one of my bridesmaids!). So, she told me to sleep in my hair (it was up), then she got up at 6, came to our room, took my hair out, and put a few loose curls in it. I'm going to post my TTD pix in a few minutes in a new thread.

I did my own hair & makeup for my TTD session. I did a less formal hairstyle than my wedding (which had been done by the resort), and pretty much the same makeup as the wedding. I liked the overall look...my pics are in my sig below.

I think that leaving it in curls and then an off to the side pony with a flower is gorgeous.

Great question ! I was just asking myself the same thing ! ! !

 

I will then just bring a waterproof mascara and a lip gloss...hopefully my "morning eyes" will not show on the pictures !

 

I would also like to have a TTD session around 7am ... before most of the guest get up and walk on the beach ...including my in-laws + parents !

 

I want to surprise them with a TTD session !

    • 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.
