Is anyone else getting their makeup done outside of their hotel in Playa del Carmen/Playacar? I'm really finding it a struggle to find someone that's willing to do it  :unsure:

Of the many that I contacted, one has offered to do it in her home, one has said that they can rent a chair at another salon and sort me out there, one has suggested that we rent a room at a budget hotel and I had a very long and winding email conversation with another where they insisted on knowing my full name and name of the booking at my hotel (even though I pointed out that I wasn't coordinating any part of the wedding through the hotel and wanted to come to them) before finally telling me that no, they could only come to me. And several others who also can only come to me.

 

It's only going to be me, so I don't want to cough up $350 for someone to come in and do my makeup. (side note - my hotel originally quoted me $200 and then suddenly it was $350 for 2015 when I questioned it!) 

 

Am I the only one in this situation? Is it just me that's finding it a struggle? Can anyone recommend any studios in or around Playa? Other than Styling Trio as I don't know if I can afford their prices!!!

I have no advice as I am not brave enough to leave the resort on the day of the wedding. Don't want to be late!

 

$200 isn't bad I would hold them to their original quote. My resort for both will cost me over $200. Our prices also say 2014 but that's what they send me so I will fight tooth and nail if they try to change them. I just assumed you got the prices current as to when you book.

 

Good luck

I booked MVP makeup and artistry. My resort won't allow outside vendors on, so I got a hotel room in Akumal for the morning of the wedding and we are getting our hair done there. I know they have various prices depending if Melissa does it or someone from her team but I am extremely impressed with their work and splurged. Worth a try to check out.

I didn't even think of getting a cheap hotel room to allow stylin trio to come.  I originally had them booked but my resort was charging me 800 for them to come in

I'm debating whether to travel to MVP's studio in PDC to avoid the $250 vendor fee. Our hotel is only 10 mins away from PDC so I don't really know for sure what to do.

After speaking to Beso Brides/Yucatan I'm going to hire a budget hotel room (with air con!) and meeting them there. It's working out as still being less than the cost of the vendor fee alone! I'm also really excited to have them as they seem to have really great reviews. I've had great fun this week putting together hair and makeup ideas. :D 

 I got so worked up over this last week but almost everyone I spoke to was so helpful. Touch wood this is as stressful as it gets!

Deep breaths, NotSoWitty! Everything will be ok :)

Good thing you got a room with air con, the humidity here in Playa will definitely melt make-up - don't forget primer!

I kind of hate being self-promotive but I wrote a blog that might help you, almost the entire middle section is about wedding day make-up!

What time is your wedding? I'm planning on traveling to a salon because I can't pay that much for hair and make up in addition to our resortr $300 vendor fee + their day passes. Our ceremony isn't until 4 or 5 so we would have plenty of time plus would help the whole not running into each other on the resort the day of. I'm shopping around for prices still so keep name dropping :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
