@@chrisandcassie - Thank both of you, Chris and Cassie. Super helpful. Really appreciate you coming here after your wedding to help the rest of us!
 

The band sounds awesome. We wouldn't be able to afford them for the night either, but I"m going to run the idea by my fiance of maybe having them during the cocktail hour. We'll try to check them out too while at the resort

Question regarding the beauty salon at beach palace,

 

What have you or are you doing for make up and hair for family and friends? I have my own make up and hair stylist but need someone for immediate family. Are you guys using the beauty salon at BP or something else? I have at least 10-15 people that will need hair and make up done.. any suggestion?

 

Thanks,

Renal

wondering the same thing.... we have my self, plus 6 bridesmaids that will need hair and makeup done.   Anyone that used the salon - do you remember what they charged for up-do and makeup? 

Also, with this many people and wedding at 4 pm;  what time should we make an appointment for???

I'm getting mine done with Styling Trio. I was also sent pricing info for MVP. Both of these are Palace approved vendors so you won't have to pay for vendor fees or day passes.

 

You can also get it done at the Palace salon and use up to $300 of your resort credits (if you're staying a week). I got sent what's titled the Le Blanc spa list, but I'm assuming the prices are the same

Turned into a bit of a Bridezilla and fired off my first angry email today. Wedding is in 3 weeks, we'll be down there in 2. It's been almost 2 weeks since I've received my last "it'll be sent tomorrow" email from Marisol. We were supposed to have our wedding coordinator assigned week, never happened. I still have questions and concerns and want to make sure we have everything done and ready when the time comes. I don't want to be running around last minute going crazy. So frustrated.

 

Besides that, I booked hair for my MOH and myself through Style Trio also. I was tempted to do the eyelash, airbrush makeup, and hair package but that was over $500. Interesting that it was that much when the same package is $300 for bridesmaids, etc. I thought about booking the hair with the salon, but we're going to be using our resort credit for mani/pedi/massages the day before. Hair only through Style Trio is $90, whereas through BP it's $100+. Plus I wasn't sure if I had to be in the salon, I'd prefer to just have someone come to my room and pretty me up.

 

Does anyone have any idea how strict they are on only allowing 20% of guests be from other resorts?  In the past week I've had 4 people who never RSVP'd decide they're going, and they're staying offsite. We have 34 guests and 4 people are already staying offsite. I'm kind of to the point of washing my hands of the whole matter.

Sent it over!

@@NicoleLV - I'd totally be Bridezilla'ing too! Have you tried emailing her again? From what I've read here, the on site coordinators are great once you get to the resort, but they suck at emailing.

 

Yeah, the pricing for Styling Trio is a lot, but I decided to go with it because I want to make sure I look as good as I can and my makeup lasts the whole day. I'm even getting the trial too. I just scheduled it for before our welcome party and the day we plan on going out, so i can at least "use" it for that - and I want to see how it holds up. Bridal makeup usually costs more than BMs because they spend a lot longer. I've gotten my make up done a lot as a bridesmaid, and they usually do an okay job and maybe do half an hour. For the bride, they always look flawless and usually they've spent over an hour on the bride

 

I'm wondering abotu the strictness of the off resort visitors too. We've been trying to get everyone to book with our group, but it's definitely been a struggle. I can't imagine them turning people away there, esp. since you will be paying extra for it. Maybe if it becomes an issue, just ask one of your other guests to get a day pass for them instead of you (under their name)

Posted an album, hope it shows up.

 

Your pics are amazing!! You are one super gorgeous bride. Did you say you did your own makeup? It looks flawless!

 

Please whenever you have time and are back and settled, give us a review of how everything went! The wedding looks like it was stunning. A couple of questions if you don't mind:

 

I want the same white draping you had for the ceremony. Did you just request this? Did you have to pay extra at all? (and for the little chandelier?)

 

Where did you get your florals from, and how much did they cost? I can't remember if it was you that said you were going to use Maya Floral... did you have to pay a delivery fee at all? I love those tall centrepieces too

 

I saw you used the Tiffany chairs for the ceremony and the folding ones for your reception. I was hoping to just pay the 1 fee and have them move the chairs to the reception area - I'm guessing that's not the case?

 

Thank you so much for posting these pics! Please also link us whenever you get your professional ones done! You were a super stunning bride :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
