Hi Bees!

I’m getting married in Victoria, BC at the end of August. I grew up there and moved to colorado a year ago to be with my fiance. Have any of you found your hairstylist yet?

There are so many in so many different price ranges….hard to choose!

It is nice to hear from others in Victoria going through the same things! I am having my long time hair stylist and friend do my hair, but I am stuck with makeup. Very interested to hear what others are doing.

We are getting married at Church and State Winery in Brentwood , so I am hoping for good weather in September as most of it is planned for outdoors.

Hi, Emskins.

I got married (in Victoria) last year. My makeup was done by Holly (http://hmakeup.ca). Holly is a great makeup artist and she had the best prices that I came across. I was really happy with the work that she did. I know it’s hard to find someone to do makeup in Victoria (unless you go to Mac, in which case you’d have to go to the mall to get your makeup done) – when I was searching last year, I could find only three artists to choose from. One was Sharon Rai – she books up quickly and is way more expensive than Holly.

My hair was done by Nicole of Nicole and Co. (www.nicoleandco.com). Nicole is great too – she does hair for modelling shoots and hair shows. She was really accommodating and let Holly do everyone’s makeup in her downtown salon, so my bridesmaids, mom, and I went through a rotation of hair and makeup.

I hope that helps! 🙂

I just booked Hollie the makeup artist. I haven’t had a trial yet so I cant say anything about her skill but her email communications have been very good and her prices are reasonable. I will be doing a trial in august so I will know more then about her makeup skill.

YAY to Victoria brides! I’m getting married here next spring! 🙂

My to-be sister-in-law had her reception at the Polish Hall in James Bay last year. 🙂

Beacon hill is beautiful, I was considering here but decided against it because in May the weather is soo unpredictable.

I’ll be getting married in Victoria next year (2012) in September.

I have a friend who has offered their house at 10-Mile point for a venue…I just need to work on the dress…losing 50 lbs….and deciding how many people to invite.

We are planning on an evening wedding and a dessert buffet afterward.

My biggest issue is that I don’t drink alcohol and all my SO’s friends are heavy drinkers. I’m not too keen on footing the bill for one big piss-up and he doesn’t want to have a cash bar.

Also, I’m not a dancer so don’t want to be forced onto a dancefloor. However, we need some kind of entertainment for the guests. Any advice?

Then again, maybe I should just have a German themed wedding and hire an oom-pah band and get everybody to polka ’til they drop?

I am in Victoria but getting married in Joshua Tree California. I grew up on the Island and have lived right accross from Beacon Hill Park so for those of you tha chose that location, good choice! If we didn’t love joshua Tree and Palm Springs so much I would have loved to get married on the Island.
