I was between 2 as well and I had my hair stylist take a look at each website. She picked Styling Trio and I also asked our photographer since they see alot of hair and make up being done. I also asked a friend who knows someone who lives there locally and across the board everyone said Styling Trio. I still get crap from FI about how much it is but seeing their pictures, I know it'll be worth it! To me it is worth the splurge :)

Congratulations! Your wedding is just right around the corner.. Please don't forget to post some reviews from The Best Moments :)

I absolutely will! We also hired del sol photography so I'll post a review on them, too. So far, I can say that I am EXTREMELY pleased with del sol. Ael who answers all emails, helps with booking, etc. called me last week to discuss photos that I wanted. I mean, wow.

Thank you!!! My FI is actually against me hiring a hair and makeup artist. When we did our engagement photo, I hired someone with supposedly 5 stars review here at home and he hated my makeup she did for me. I ended up changing my makeup and doing it myself. He's insisting I just do my own makeup. I've been telling him its not the same on your wedding day. Oh guys sometimes they just dont get it...

I'm bringing my own photographer from home. Although my package has a photo and video coverage included, I think I'm gonna try to swtich it to a family photoshoot before the wedding instead of a wedding coverage. When we came to Dreams and visited, I asked Claudia and adventure photos and they told me it shouldn't be a problem. I want to add a photo booth from adventure photos as well. I haven't gone far with that but I'm hoping they can work something out with me. 

Are you gonna be doing a trash the dress session with del sol?

I went with Styling Trio and would 100% recommend them.  I've gotten my makeup done a bunch of times (in Toronto) and it was by far the best makeup I've ever had.  I looked like me but much better haha. They are definitely pricey but I have to say I thought they were worth every dollar.  I had Adrian and Susie on my makeup and Esperanta on hair - all were wonderful

 

You can see some pics and more commentary in my review #2 (see signature)

Thank you so much! Your wedding looked absolutely beautiful! I did read a few reviews about Styling Trio makeup lasting till the following night. Not that I'm planning on not taking them off, I was thinking of having a change of hairstyle and a possible retouch after the ceremony or something. I'm not sure if that's necessary because I'm sure it'll be an additional charge.

No I only paid the price they quoted me. I paid the deposit online through PayPal in advance. The trial for me was added on at the last minute once in Mexico and actually paid the balance for that online through PayPal as well after they came for the trial but before our wedding day. The remaining balance was paid in cash the day of the wedding but I assume that it could have been paid through PayPal as well if it would have been necessary. I guess it would have been nice to tip on top but unfortunately I didn't have any extra money.

@@jenna85 you and I have the same wedding date I've also booked Styling Trio, they were one of the first vendors I booked. After reading all the great reviews about them I knew I had to book them. Plus they're an approved vendor for Palace resorts so at least I don't have to pay vendor fees

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you

    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
