    Ladies, I just mailed these off at 5pm last night when the  post office was about to close.  The postal worker too my box and said she would get them in.. (of course I called today to confirm, these are our invites right =) LOL Now last nights mailing was the pa, va, md, nj invites.  Gotta love our Postal Workers!  But I'm thinking that I should have waited one more to day mail these off to give time for my TX, AK, CO, WA folks to get theres...  Wow another text received which said Ok, just took my invite out of the mail and I don't want to open it" it's too pretty! Luv the Stamp! Do the darn thing, momma! Go big or go home lol.  it continues to say "Chanel, a passport invite for real?  That's it, when the Lord blesses me with "the One", you are planning my wedding!  I am super excited now. 

     

    YAY.... go Sarah from Sproullie Designs...

      Thanks Girly ;-)  Yup sure did.  Way more expensive then purchasing stamps at the post office,  like 2 times more especially for the number of invites we sent out.  But no regrets at all.  I used zazzle for our STDs but they were of our monogram....

       

      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

I hired Norma Perez in Cancun.  Unfortunately, I didn't see many African American women either getting married at MP and/or having their make-up done.  This day is too big to have a flop like that so I hired someone (aside from it being to costly to fly my makeup artist in).

                      Me too, Jamie -- I've been researching this myself.  I originally wanted to use MP's salon because I thought the resort credit could apply towards that.  Now, I've found out that we can't use our credit towards wedding salon services. :(   These are some good things I've read in reviews on here about the MP salon (below). 

                       

                      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 didn’t have a trial but for the first time ever, I didn’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 wouldn’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 didn’t hold up very well. Curls were falling out before I even go to the ceremony, so I’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.

                      I am having a difficult time deciding what to do for hair and make-up.  I was hoping for those of you who have married at Moon Palace and used their salon to get hair and make-up done, if you could give me your honest opinions those services.  Possibly some pix as well....I have heard mixed reviews on Moon Palace's salons service.

                       

                      I want to use an outside person, but I don't know if I can justify the cost plus the cost of the day passes for them. 

                       

                      Thanks!!! :)
