    funny, i am getting married in Jamaica 4 days before you! and i went through the same dilemma about hair and make up!

    i know someone else who got married at my resort and she said her BMs brought pics of the hairstyles they wanted, and the hairstylist was able to imitate them no problem. so i think that is key. i also had an experience where i went to a destination wedding as a Bridesmaid or Best Man and i did not bring a picture and i HATED my hair. however, another Bridesmaid or Best Man did bring a picture and her hair turned out exactly as she wanted (by the same stylist). so what i learned from that is that even hair stylists who are not the greatest on their own, can imitate a picture.  

    So i plan to find photos of the hairstyle i want… and i plan to find photos of front, back, side, whatever it takes to make sure its perfect!  i also checked with my resort and they told me i can do a hair trial.

    for makeup i am still debating having the resort do it, or do it myself.  i think i may hire someone i know in my hometown to teach me and i will buy products, then practice every weekend for a month or 2 before the wedding. so when i get to the resort, i can either have a make up trial or even just rub it off and do it myself if i don’t like it on the day. or who knows, maybe i will get so good at practicing that i will be confident to do it myself! right now i have ZERO skills when it comes to makeup though….

    @Coloradolov:  i am getting married at Sunset Beach in Montego Bay.  my first time going to Jamaica and I am SOO excited!  we will also do a mini honeymoon at the Couples Negril resort.

    i am pretty luck with my wedding coordinator, she gets back to me within 2 days always. sometimes faster.  before her there was someone else (who no longer works there – that switchover stressed me out a bit!), but the old one would take forever to get to me. now i am happy there was someone new take over!

    good luck.  the sooner you get things planned out over email the better. and its always good to have everything in writing.  i harass my poor coordinator over every detail. but she is so nice about it and responds to every little question!
