Wish i did the same for my makeup. It took a bit to get on the same page but once we did itncame out beautiful. Also, There is a language barrier bc none of the girls in the salon speak much English so they bring in someone to translate.
Thanks so much for letting me know. I plan on renting the bridal suite and I am having my hair and makeup done and some of my guests and bridesmaids would like to as well. I was wondering how much time we would need to get ready- seems like the whole day! My wedding is at 5 but we are doing a first look and are taking pics before we head to the church so we are looking at a be done up time of 3:30 for an hour photo session and then to church! Or maybe 3:00 so we aren't cutting it close!
This was so helpful and of course, I had to be a creeper and check out your photo in your avatar. absolutely stunning wedding picture. Who was your photographer?
@ Angelnjewels- I didn't hear about this restriction but since I am getting married in the curch off-sight it probably didn't apply to me. Our cocktail party will be on Plaza Colonial and our reception will be on the beach. I wanted Olympus Terrace but it was booked. I have learned to be happy about the bech but am secretly hoping the other bride wants to cancel Olympus Terrace as her Location. I already requested the Apollo ballroom as my back up reception sight in case it rains. I would suggest you ladies do the same. If there is another wedding on your date and it rains, they might just throw you anywhere. Send an email and have it in writing what you want your backup location to be this way you aren't screwed in the end.
Any other PPR brides renting the bridal suite?
