Ladies,

 

In my initial search I looked up all of the names mentioned below.  And they all seemed great and have great reviews from people on this site.  I don't need my hair done as I have natural hair (sisterlocks) so the prices that most listed would be adjusted for Hair only.  But after much research I went with Norma Perez (she's on Facebook) with tons of pictures..... and this is what sold me as she worked with so many beautiful skin colors and tons....  However; if I didn't have pictures to go off of it would have been hard to pick between her and Sara.  Sara is the sister of Sol Tamargo of the infamous Del Sol and just relocated back to the area so you may not find many pictures.. But if she is like her sister her work will be incredible.

I'm also considering hiring someone outside the resort -- was looking at Sara Tamargo who uses MAC, but she doesn't have many pics up on her site (saratamargo.com).  Also, I asked for prices from Melissa from MVP, who seems like she'd be GREAT, I'm just not sure if I can rearrange our budget to book her.  (If you want her prices, PM me.)  Also heard good things about someone named Adrian who uses MAC (but don't have any further info unfortunately) and someone named Fernando Fuentes whom I haven't researched yet. 

 

I hope some of this helps.  I'm curious to also know what you find out.  Would you be willing to share some of your findings with me? 

 

I absolutely loved Doris. From the trial to the day of, she impressed me with her work. She was very sweet and nice. I brought in pictures as examples and she knew exactly what I wanted. I was a little nervous for makeup since I didnâ€t have a trial but for the first time ever, I didnâ€t look like a drag queen. I brought my own makeup and lashes and she used a mix of mines and hers and it was perfect. The heat did mess with the lashes because by the end of the night, they were coming off. But my makeup stayed on really well and I was really impressed and felt really beautiful the day of my wedding.

 

SALON A++: I got my hair done at the Nizuc salon by Maria. They wouldnâ€t let me choose who would do my hair, but I was very happy with Maria. I have a lot of hair, so my appointment took about 2 hours and 15 minutes! I am very happy I scheduled for an hour earlier than they had recommended! She did an amazing job. I brought several pictures, and she did almost exactly what I wanted. She did try to put in a bump at the crown (which I did not want and was not pictured) and was pinning the curls in front in such a way that it almost looked like a halo, but once we fixed that, it truly was perfect! My only complaint would be that it didnâ€t hold up very well. Curls were falling out before I even go to the ceremony, so Iâ€d say bring lots of hairspray and extra bobby pins for touch ups.

 

Our wedding was scheduled to start at 3:00 so I booked my hair and makeup for 11:30. My appointment was booked with Alberto, and he did a fabulous job. He did my hair exactly like the pictures I provided and was able to cover up my peeling forehead with a great makeup job.

Thanks I will, were going to use them when we sent out our STD...but it was way to expensive for 150 STD...we might do it for the invites we only order 75 of them.

 

I did see a very nice monogram one we like.

Suggestion for you or anyone that plans to use zazzle or making your own stamps.  Take your package to the post office first to see the cost first.  We have a machine at the job so I just had my receptionist check

The custom ones take a minute to get so make sure you don't plan to send out your invites within the next too weeks because this is how long it could take.

Well, since I am  home today I am going to run some errands and work on a few DIY projects while the men folk are at school and work ;-) 

 

I contemplated on doing a planning thread but figured it would probably take-up most of my day (even with me being organized) & I thought it best not to unveil everything yet, as the ever "so popular date" of April 21, 2012 is booked solid with 8 weddings at MP.  With so many brides getting married on the 21st of April, I think this is a safe move.  So with that said, I will post a few simple pictures of projects in the making.  As always, if you would like any templates that I have I will be more than happy to email them.

 

Here are the tags that I made for our Oh Sh*t & Naughty Nite kits.  Along with the wedding weekend survival tag. I did a lot of word play throughout our Website, DIY etc.. on my future last name "Wright"  so here we go:

 

 

Made with Metallic Card Stock from paperandmore.com  $29.99 for 100

bag tags.jpg

 

Again using the metallic card stock

Oh poop -naughty nite kit tags.jpg

 

These are my oh sh*t kit bags (fuschia organza bags)that one of the above tags will go on. My Naughty Night Kits are in turquoise organza bags (I have to take pictures)

Oh Shit Kits.JPG

Most of the extra contents in the bag I actually sold to two MP-12 future brides (thanks ladies)

Your projects came out like a pro!! WOW! I absolutely love everything and the special touches like the card stock and plays on your future last name are perfect! These Oh Sh*t Naughty Nite kits are going to be one of the best things ever for your guests. Our guests were so happy to have extra aspirin, etc. for the nights were there were 1 or 5 too many margaritas :) You did a really great job and tying it in with the colors of your monogram to boot...fabulous :)

 

Another idea for the use of your future last name would be t-shirts. We had some printed from Vistaprint for our bridal party with the play on my future last name as well. Since it was going to be "Bond", we did a James Bond-themed scavenger hunt around the resort and my girls were the "Beach Angels" so I'm right there with you on making the last name FUN!

 

Wonderful job and I can't wait to see what else you come up with! XOXO

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
