What To Do With My Hair And Make Up?! Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, 

 

I am 10 weeks away from my destination wedding day (whooo hooo!) and still can't decide what to do with my (and my bridesmaids) hair and make up.  I'd like to pay for my 2 bridesmaids hair and make up as a thank you for standing up for me at my wedding, and I think it would be fun to get pampered on the day of the wedding. But with the weak Canadian dollar now, I don't know if I can afford it. Do we do our own? Do we spend the $155/person to get our hair done at the resort and do our own make up? Or do any of you have any recommendations for me (I have already read the vendor reviews and contacted a few of them who seem to be quite expensive). Has anyone gone to a salon in PDC to get it done there instead of on the resort? 

 

Any (urgent) help/advice would be much appreciated!

Lucky you the Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Mexico is super close to the central so the are plenty of local spa that are affordable.

I was trying to attach the file but couldn't for some reason, feel free to reach out i can share with you the lists.

 Some of the local spas are being owed by Canadians plus the prices are in the local currency.. 

 

Happy Planning!

We used the styling trio out of playa del Carmen 4 years ago for my sisters wedding. I can't remember what we paid, and they don't have prices on their website. They were amazing! We all looked gorgeous and they came to us! Perfect way to start a wedding day!

@@rbehlke I used Styling Trio but yes - with the dollar the way it is they will be expensive unfortunately. I don't know what your spa charges on the resort but it's so worth being pampered on your wedding day! If there is a way to find the funds I highly recommend it!

Thank you ladies! After thinking more about it, I think we are going to do our own make-up so now I'm just looking for places in PDC to get our hair done. Don't want to be paying the extra $200 vendor fee to have them at the hotel (I might as well use the hairdressers onsite if that's the case!).

@@rbehlke, you can contact Keri, who is actually Canadian and owns the Go Diva Spa. here is the link to her website. the good thing is the prices are in mexican peso. Right in the heart of playa del carmen.

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
