Hair and makeup

Pulling some ideas together for the overall style I'd like for my hair and makeup for the wedding! I'm planning on booking Beaute Speciale to help me out with this since it's SO convenient and they do such a great job! For my hair, I'm working on growing it out and it's now to my shoulder blades. Hoping it gets a little longer before then but either way I want it up and off my back as I'm sure it will feel all sweaty and not want to hold a curl if it's down anyway! Here are some ideas...









I'm wanting some pretty dramatic makeup since I wear makeup every day and want something spectacular for this special day! Maybe something like this?



I have blue eyes so I'm guessing those colors might make them POP like hers?!

Or this is pretty stunning too! And pulls in the dark purple I want to use.



Or a classic come hither eye and red lip...LOVE this look!

Officiant search!

I'm looking for officiants this weekend. I have a list of those to research based on other Dis bride's reviews! Here's who I'll be checking out in the next couple days:

Rev Tim Herring
Rev Kevin Knox
Ron Rosenzweig
Rev Teresa Knox
Rev Jack Day
Renee Silverman-A Lovely Ceremony
Paster Kirk Bane
Rev Glynn Ferguson-Sensational Ceremonies

I'm not sure how to make this decision as I've never really done this before so any suggestions are welcome! When I'm not sure what to do I tend to make decisions based on the quality and interest in their websites but in this case that might be hard to do since it appears officiants don't really put a big focus on their website design! Haha...and I've already noticed at least one of them uses Comic Sans font on their website and I know if my DF knows that (crazy designer brain) he would never let me book them!

Thank you and congrats on your daughter's engagement!! When is her wedding? This is such an exciting time!

My photographer is not a Disney vendor. I was fortunate to have chosen venues where I could use whoever I wanted and loved Jason Angelini's work so was able to book him! Since you'll have to use DFAP you can still research their photographers and choose your favorites and put in a request for them and cross your fingers! I know they have a lot of talented photographers so I hope you'll be happy with your results!

I do have a PJ:http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=280146 it's pretty long I will warn you, I've been writing it for a year and a half!

I love your save the dates, the colours and design is so classic and the matching envelopes are such a nice touch! Your hair and makeup inspiration pics are lovely, that's something I still need to take care of myself. As for officiants, I am not going to lie, a little bit of our decision was made based on who we wanted to see in our photos. Then it was who had better communication. The website thing affected our decision too...

Hi
I've just been reading through your story so far ... your ring is beautiful and your fiance a genius for working out the one you would love!
I'm a UK bride so planning everything long distance - although ours will be small scale so not such hard work!

We booked Rev Kev Knox, not sure why, I just had a good feeling I guess. Communications have been excellent and I am not anticipating any problems for our day based on the service so far - very professional. They send you a very useful planning pack to select ideas from. I've been very impressed.

I also booked BS for hair/make up, and again great communications and service so far.

Good luck choosing.

Thank you!! I hope your planning is going well from a distance! They've done this so many times I'm sure whatever you plan will come together flawlessly even if it is long distance! That's something you can be sure of with Disney.

That's what I definitely wanted with an officiant, just a good feeling! And I've heard good things about Rev Kev! Have you heard the Disney Weddings podcast with him? That really helped me in deciding what kind of officiant I wanted.

Very good to know about BS! I will book them soon!

Hahaha steal away! I loved those loosely up but "UP" being the operative word styles. I don't need to be worrying about my hair on that day!

Officiant and Videographers!

We've decided on and booked an officiant! That's one big worry off our minds! We decided to go with Rev. Glynn Ferguson of Sensational Ceremonies. http://sensationalceremonies.com He was actually the only one I actually CONTACTED. And he called me within 10 mins of me filling out the form on his website! I was very impressed. We immediately had a connection! He was funny and very technologically inclined (suggested we can Skype or FaceTime to know each other better). I could tell immediately that he was very interested in making a special, meaningful ceremony for us that we would always remember. I also mentioned his name to Amy, our planner, and she said she's worked with him before and he will definitely do a great job. Thus, he was hired and we can't wait to work with him.

That being said, I have been having some anxiety on not planning to have a videographer since this will be the most important day of our lives to this point and I know we're not going to be able to remember every aspect of it. I want us to be able to have something (other than the amazing photos Jason will provide us with!) to look back upon to remember our special day. However, it turns out the quotes I had already received from several videographers (namely 829Films and Key Moment Films-both great companies from the looks of it!) didn't fit a tight budget and left little to no room for adjustments or customization in length of service. Until I found Trinity Wedding Cinema (http://www.trinityweddingcinema.com)!! Trinity was also on Jason's preferred vendors list and he's worked with them many times which is important that our photo and video vendors have a good working relationship! I spoke with David from Trinity and was sold! He was able to offer us a great package (especially since we have a weekday wedding!)! I am SO happy and thrilled that everything is truely falling into place!

Sarah I LOVE your choices for hair! They definitely have a very elegant and romantic feel to them. It'll look stunning! I love checking out Pinterest for beauty ideas- it seems there are always new ideas that I haven't seen before! And I know you said you wear everyday makeup- my MOH got me hooked on this website called "Makeup Geek". oh my gosh. This girl is amazing!! She has great tutorials for the eyeshadow applying impaired (read me) and she has a lot of cool ideas and looks on her site. Worth a look if you want!
I keep hearing about Beaute Speciale... do they come to your hotel room and such?
The DF and I are starting to look into officiants this week too. I am hopeful to narrow down a list to start and contact them by the end of the weekend- I'm so glad you had an instant connection with one. It gives me hope that, like a dress, I'll just "know"! One more thing checked off the bridal to do list that is never ending!
