I was going to use the resort to save money (Beach Palace), but I've decided to go with Styling Trio for peace of mind. I like the pics they've done and I like that they use airbrush makeup. I know in Mexico they also commonly apply their makeup heavier than I personally like. I"m also Asian and I want to make sure that the artist has worked with Asian eyes and skin tones before which Styling Trio has.
It's definitely a ton of money though! And if I do a hair and makeup trial as well, it's over $200 on top of what I'd be paying for the day . So I think I"m going to just splurge for the day, and have them come in early enough that we can change things if I don't like it
It's kind of crazy that makeup and hair prices are more than what I'd be paying at home in Toronto!
Styling Trio is who I'm looking at too! Brenda has been super responsive so far with emails, and like you, the fact that they do the airbrush is what sold me. Yes - it is expensive but she says the makeup has a 12 to 14 hour wear time so that's great and I think makes it worth it! And I will probably pick up the cost for my daughter in law too to have hers done. It's one of my boys that is "taking the walk" with me! lol But that was the one thing when we were married in Jamaica, the makeup did last but looking back now it was heavier than what I normally wear.
Oh yeah - and I'm in Toronto too! Well, I work in Toronto but live west of the city. Lots of canadian brides on this site!
