Hey I have a question for everyone. I just read Christina's review....(great review by the way!)

 

Does anyone know the price to use Fernando for hair and make-up? has anyone else used him? I know that Christina used him but I was just wondering if anyone else has?

 

I am debating on doing my own hair and make-up or having someone come to LC to do it for me!

 

THANKS!

Hey Andi!

 

I'm also having Fernando do my hair & makeup. Kelley gave me a quote awhile back that was $220 for hair/makeup the day of and if you also want to do a trial a day or two before then I think it's like an extra $200 (I still have to confirm this w/ Kelley). I'm debating just having him come out the day of, but it makes me really nervous not knowing how it's going to turn out!! All said and done, it's a lot of $$, but when I think about all the pics, etc. it's definitley worth it to me. Plus, I can barely straighten my hair!! :)

I didn't do a trial with Fernando, but he was a rock star with my hair and make-up. I brought pics of hair and make-up and even brought a hair piece because I wanted a big ol' bun - think Heidi Klum at the Oscars. I also wanted fake eyelashes - which I brought and he put on for me & one of my girlfriends. He uses MAC makeup too.

 

It all turned out great!

Thanks, Christina! I'm so glad to hear that he did an amazing job and you didn't have to do the trial. Is the quote of $220 correct for hair and makeup the day of? Did you also bring a picture of for your makeup...or just gave him a general idea?

Yes, $220 was what I paid - however, I gave him more since he put on lashes for my girlfriend and did my daughter's make-up while I finished getting ready. I brought several pics of hairstyles I liked as well as make-up - including my trial run at MAC.

Love the pics!! It looks like you guys had so much fun and you looked amazing! I especially love the terrible towel and pinata ideas...we have a few little ones coming so that might be a great way to keep them busy (at least capture their attention for a few minutes! :-)) I thought of a couple more ?s when I was looking at your slideshow:

 

1. Did you arrange a charter bus through Vallarta Adventures? And did they pick all your guests up at the hotel and bring them straight to the marina?

2. What Company did you order the fans from?

3. I loved the cake! I think you mentioned your cake in your review, but did you just tell Kelley/Nicole what you wanted and they took it from there?

 

Thanks and Congrats!!

Hi, I used Fernano also. He RULLED. Yes he was spendy and I debated not getting him but he was awesome and I loved my hair so much!!! He started my hair and realized I had more hair than he expected and instead of just finishing it half assed, he took it all out and started over.

 

About to post my review rolleyes.gif

Thank You! We did have a fun, fantastic time. I'm from Pittsburgh - Steelers Pride : ) Ironically, our photographer is Steelers fan, too - Roberto Aceves - a PV local.

To answer your questions:
1. We arranged the bus through VA. Pick up at hotel to the marina, as well as return after the wedding.
2. The fans are from Oriental Trading. I have 9 extras.
3. I drew a little picture of the type of cake I wanted and Nicole came through. It had to be ordered by an outside vendor, however. Not typical for LC. I had sent the almond flavoring to Nicole, not sure it was used by it tasted like almonds and had crushed almonds in the cake. Soooo good!
