    Hi Ladies!

    I'm a terrified newbie - to the site and to wedding planning!! My fiance and I just got back from a 6 day/7 night stay at the Beach Palace and we're SO excited to go back for our wedding!

    I don't remember there being any salon chairs in the spa or in the salon... Where did everyone get their hair and make-up done? Did you have a good or bad experience? I can't think of a single guest that would know how to do (or fix) my hair and make-up so I want to make sure there is a good place to go to! Any info/tips you can give would be FABULOUS!

    Thanks in advance!!

      Congrats!  They do have salon chairs there, they do hair and makeup.  A lot of people have someone from the outside come in and do their hair and makeup so you might want to consider that.
      We're getting married at the Cancun Palace in May 2011 and I hired Fernando for my makeup. He also brings someone to do hair.  I met with him when I was in Cancun a month ago and he was awesome.  Has a great portfolio too.  He's also very popular on this site.

        Thanks! I've emailed Fernando and Adrian and both were super responsive. Now I just have to decide between the two. I've seen great reviews for both... BDW brides sure love them!!

          I am at the Aventura Place Resort and I have booked Fernado for my wedding. My wedding is in Feb so I can't tell you if he is good, but he is the King of fast responces! I was in heaven dealing with him.

           

          What you doing for photography?

                He's an outside vendor, he's one of the best.  His portfolio is amazing.

                  What are the usual/typical price ranges for outside makeup and hair? I'm on the fence and price is the determining factor. Thanks!!

                    Fernando quoted me $450 just for me! I have no doubt he is good, but I think it is extremely overpriced fro even the US or Canada, unless he and his hair stylist do my make up and hair every day for 7 days:)...j/k

                     

                    what are your thoughts?

                       I COMPLETELY AGREE!! Most will quote you around that though which is a little disappointing. I have actually played with the idea of finding a salon in the area that maybe could do it for me but haven't really found anything... Now that we're just doing our TTD and pictures in Cancun (no wedding unfortunately) I'm looking for someone really inexpensive... If you find someone willing to charge you half of that quote please let me know!! =o)
