Beach Palace Brides - Hair & Make-Up?

Recommended Posts

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?

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)

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
