Hair & Makeup Question

Hair is $115, makeup $75. I am not having my makeup done there. I can see if they have a MAC artist when I'm there, though.

You can email them. They will sometimes take a day or two to respond, but they will respond and will be very responsive.

Bambi is the person for hair.
Thanks for posting the link Natasha. I was just checking out their website and saw that they do a bachelorette spa-tini party. Looks like something I might check out for my girls!
I'm so glad to hear you are getting things resolved with the resort. I hope the rest of your time before your wedding goes smoothly.
I am so excited for you November brides!

FYI Girls, I emailed the HIVE and this is what I just got back..


Ms. Mooney,


I am not certain at this time if Bambi will be available for you June 5, 07.

She frequently travels to the NY, LA & Chicago to work. I would know for

sure closer to you date....approximately 3 months prior. She does however

have a team of artist in Cabo that can service you. They have all been

trained by her. In addition, her make up artist is MAC trained. If you are

interested in receiving a proposal, please forward the number of guests you

would like serviced and I will forward immediately.








SO my question to those that already booked the HIVE, how far in advance did you book it?

I actually used Hive and was told I was going to get Bambi and then the day of I ended up getting someone else. It is $35 for them to come to you, no matter how far away you are, I was at the Pacifica, so it probably took them about 45 minutes each way!


She did a good job, but for me, it just wasn't worth the money. It was windy and humid, so my hair lost all of the curl within about 5 minutes of being outside. I would have rather saved the $300 it ended up costing me and just had my sister and a friend do my hair and makeup (but obviously this is easier for me to say after the fact)!


Also, I booked mine the week before and paid right before we left for Cabo, so I wouldn't stress out about it too much!


If I had been closer to the salon, I totally would have gone for the party there with all of my girls - that would have been worth it!

In my expirence as wedding coordinator, let me tell you that it´s better if the H&M person can come to you, in this case you will save on the transpotation from your hotel to HIVE and back.


And you never know what can happen, maybe traffic, wind, heat, etc. I recommend you get them to work in your hotel room if it´s possible.


This is a tip from a wedding coordinator.

I would have the H&M people come to you. We went to the salon at the Hilton only because it was downstairs. We did our own make-up and ordered room service together afterward. It was nice to have some fun time just with my bridal party before the whirlwind of activity the rest of the day. BTW, I'm glad I get married at 3PM and had an evening recetion as opposed to my brother's 11AM wedding and afternoon reception. It felt less rushed. I know Dave enjoyed some relaxing pool time earlier that day.

Does anyone know what the H&M people are like at Dreams in Cabo, or is it worth the extra to pay for HIVE to come in and do it? I know my package includes it, but I want my hair to be perfect on my day!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
