Soooooo after thinking long and hard about it I have decided to hire the regionally famous Fernando from The makeup pros to do hair and makeup for the wedding. I knew that in the past its been impossible to water makeup in the Mayan heat yet alone on my wedding day and the cost to buy all new photo ready waterproof makeup was huge... Plus I have no guarantee it would look great. The reviews I have read for the resort spa have been far from what I want ever yet alone on my wedding day. So the snag is the "zero tolerance to outside vendors" policy. I know there could be a way around it with a day pass as a "friend" but not going to risk it and be left screwed for hair and makeup. So I contacted Fernando and he is pissed with the resort but said if I can find a way around it he would give me and my girls discounts. Well after nearly crying over the situation I got angry enough to find a way. Screw resort policy a bride should be able to hire who she wants. So the solution? 5 minutes away from the resort is a cute little Bed & Breakfast. $45 per night must book 2 nights which is perfect because I will use the day before to do our trials. Fernando is doing my hair and makeup for $280 normally $350 for my troubles and now I'm getting really excited! Airbrushed makeup so hopefully it won't sweat off. 30 days till my wedding!!! Saturday we are having a tiny legal ceremony and will be officially wed. During the legal ceremony we will say quick vows and exchange rings etc... My question is for people who have had a legal ceremony at home whole doing symbolic at a destination wedding.... What do you do with your rings? They ate exchanged at the legal part so do you then take them off till the destination wedding?
Thanks in advance. Getting excited now. BTW still no reply from Jasmin
