Yea, that's totally a bummer. They have the strictest rules about vendors it's so annoying. Good luck with everything!! I hope it works out for you. @@talicea7812

 

I'll make sure to let you know my experience with the salon once I return in a couple weeks :)

Finally... a breakthrough on the hair and makeup issue!

 

After tons of searching I found Beso Brides! Micheal and Martina do hair and airbrush makeup for very reasonable prices! I will be able to get hair and makeup for $180...bridesmaids $145. 

 

I am able to have them come to the resort only because they offer airbrush makeup and the hotel can not provide that service.  My FL coordinator says I will need to pay for a day pass for them...so that can be an additional $160.  However, I have read many reviews (not just from Azul) but many hotels charge these fees but when confronted onsite will discount them or waive them altogether.  So I will hold off on buying the passes and see what I can negotiate the day of.

 

Check out Beso Brides on facebook.  I liked what I saw in the pics. and once I'm married I will post my results and reviews on here :)

I am very curious to hear how this goes for you. We are getting married at Azul Fives and although my Florida wedding coordinator told me the salon is good and they use MAC products and Redken for hair, I'm still a bit unsure.

 

I'm going to go checkout Beso Brides on Facebook :)

I wish I could find the reviews again...it took some hunting before I even found them  but what they said was the salon women aren't fluent in English so that could pose a problem & the makeup application wasn't anything that they couldn't have done themselves.

Anyone using Melissa from MVP?  

 

All the make up and hair artist seem to over do the makeup and the looks like a beauty contest. Looking for someone who does natural looking make up.

For me, I'd rather spend way more on pictures and hair/makeup than things like centerpieces and flowers. Does anyone have recent prices for Adrian/Styling Trio?

I am super worried about my hair. I have naturally curly hair and with the humidity and wind being such a great factor in Riviera Maya not sure how I should even style it.

I also have naturally very curly hair.  It very long and tough to manage.  it takes a lot of work to straighten and the slightest amount of humidity causes frizz (whether wearing it curly or straight).

 

according to things I read online January is not a humid month.  You should be fine. Im getting married in april so im pretty close to when the humidity kicks in. I'm thinking about getting a keratin hair treatment before going down.  I've read that its amazing for people like us.  Normally its $300 but you can usually find good deals for it on livingsocial/ groupon type of sites. 

 

I've also been in touch with various hairstylists.  They pretty much all recommend some kind of up do.

@@talicea7812 does the keratin hair treatment make your hair straight? I normally wear it curly and I know my parents want me to wear it curly on my wedding day. I was hoping that the resort stylists would know how to deal with curly hair because I know a lot of my Mexican friends have curly hair. Oh and don't forget to bring your own hair products, including shampoo and conditioner. My friend forgot and she said it cost an arm and a leg to get supplies for her hair while on vacation in Cancun.

Well I was able to find a way around the hair and makeup issue.

 

Ive read reviews that say airbrush makeup is best...especially if it ends up being a humid day.  Ive had airbrush done before and loved it!

 

Anyway...there are a couple makeup artists that do airbrush.  I was able to get the okay to bring them in on a daypass because the hotel can not offer what I'm looking for. 

 

I'm trying to decide between alex & alex and beso brides.  Beso is a bit cheaper & I think I like their hair pics better.


oh...and Ive read reviews that many times you can get day pass fees decreased the day of bc they are not wedding guests there to eat and drink.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
