Any past brides do their hair, down? I know i always thought i'd wear it up but have been considering not... worried about the wind, any opinions?

@mam9p8 You are getting married the month after me!  We chose the Excellence because we got engaged there in November and loved the resort.  I had reached out to the Excellence directly for a group rate before I reached out to my TA. The resort's group rate for the standard room was the same as on the website but the group discounts were better for the upgrades (e.g a swim-up room was only $10 more rather than $50 more). My TA was able to get a better group rate on the standard room and then match the resorts group rates for the upgraded rooms. We didn't look at any other resorts so I can't give you a good comparison.

I would not have survived pictures with my (long) hair down. It was very windy and, of course, hot. We had to keep tucking my veil under my arm a bit to stop it from flying around. Otherwise, the weather was perfect.

I'm curious about this too. The back of my dress has really pretty lace so I will probably wear it up but I kinda prefer my hair down. I was thinking of seeing how windy it is when I'm there and making a last minute decision. Are you wearing a veil? I haven't decided yet.

I always envisioned my hair down, but after we decided on Mexico I knew I would have to put my hair up and I am so glad I did!  It was super windy and the humidity would have wrecked havoc on my hair.  In half the pictures my husband looks like he has a mo-hawk from the wind.  I am really glad I put it up because I didn't worry about it or fuss with it all night long!

@Sabes44, i'm with you. That'll probably be what iwill do so i don't have to worry about it. haha

 

@kjb0528 I think so! I wasn't really sure at first but when i put my dress up she put a cathedral veil on me which i definitely didn't think i wanted until i saw it on. I am buying some of those weights for the veil that they make.  figured if it was a long veil i could step on it if it starts blowing too much. haha

 

I'm looking for something to wear in my hair though whether that be a fresh flower or some sort of clip or comb so when i take the veil out i still have something..

 

You girls all look so pretty in your dresses (i keep looking back at past posts!)

@victoriasalv I bought my hair piece on Etsy, there are tons of great hair pieces on that site!

@victoriasalv the same happened to me with the cathedral veil! My dress doesn't have any sort of train at all which was the only thing I didn't like. The long veil made it look more bridal, but I haven't decided for sure yet. I was looking at real touch flowers for my hair as one flower for your hair at the resort is around $40 I think and not sure how well it would last through the night.

    We picked a date!!!! WOO HOO!!!! 2/25/17!!!

     

    It being a Saturday, it doesn't seem like the Lobster House will be an option based on the past posts I read.  I like Los Olas but am worried about the additional light rental.  Are you brides still getting a $220 price quote?

    Hey Ladies!

    So happy I found this forum, and some awesome ERC brides!! I have 6 months left, time is flying!! Have you ladies decided on a photographer? I was looking at the packages the resort offers, and it seems expensive... I've been on the fence as to what I should do....
