@RachelDuncan check out my thread. I did a free wedding (no longer an option I believe) but upgraded everything including my reception at the palapa. I have pictures there and it was so amazing. Everything was so beautiful and went off without a hitch! They are really amazing at the Sirenis. I highly recommend the palapa beach for your ceremony and the private palapa for the reception as no other hotel guests can watch everything and it makes it so much more romantic and special for the two of you.
Ah sorry I've been so MIA. I love your dress! It looks so classic yet still has a really nice beach feel to it! Looks so perfect on you! Your big day is coming up fast! I can't wait to see pictures and hear all about it!!
Omg! Congratulations. Sorry for not messaging earlier. Congratulations on your big day! It looks and sounds like it was amazing! You looked so beautiful! I'm glad you went with that dress. It was adorable and romantic! Worked perfectly for you! Your hair and makeup also looked flawless! Co congratulations !!!!
@snswedding2016 Omg Steph! Your video is so beautiful! I'm so happy for you and Sean. You must be so happy with how that turned out. You look so beautiful and you both look so happy in that video. Yay!!!
@nkavanaugh yeah I would send lots of emails and then get all my responses a week later but at least they will answer your questions. As for spa appointments. I booked mine ahead of time but I booked my mom and mother in law when I got there and met with the coordinator. Send your coordinator a message with who wants what services and they will book it all ahead of time for you.
We were stressed die the first couple of days too making sure all of our guests were happy but after a couple days we just said no, this is our trip too. People generally are happy once they get there because c'mon, you're in paradise. How could you not be happy haha.
As for communications after paperwork I don't remember but that probably because I didn't send a lot of my stuff till late. They should be able to answer any of your questions though prior to getting there
@nkavanaugh I have a pretty detailed list of what I used for my makeup in my review. Make sure you use some form of primer. In the heat and humidity primer is a must. I used smashbox photo finish priming spray, followed by Laura mercier foundation primer, and elizabeth Arden eye primer (urban decays eye primer is just as good), and then for foundation I just used I think it's Maybeline 3 in 1 foundation. I contoured and highlighted. Highlight I used Jaclyn hills champagne pop mixed with pearl from the paler she collaborated on with Becca (shimmering skin perfecter). I also used the blush in that pallet. It's a very shimmery pallet that gives a nice bridal glow. I did my eyebrows, eyeshadow, and used a gel eye line that was waterproof. I used Maybeline collosal mascara in waterproof. Then used Velour silk fluffed up false lashes. Make sure to finish off your makeup with some sort of finishing spray like urban decays all Nighter. It will prolong your makeup. My makeup looked great still when everything was over! Good luck! [emoji1383]
Omg I've missed so Much! Congrats on being legal! That's so exciting! I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to see how your wedding goes! You've been planning so much and I think it's going to pay off! Can't wait to see pictures! Have fun!!!
