I highly recommend My Cinderalla's Dream. I had tried other makeup/hair people prior to doing a trial with Mari and Rita and no one compared. Mari and Rita were extremely professional and nice, punctual, and FAST!!! They knew exactly what I wanted and made it happen. At first I thought they were really pricey, but I have to say that it was so worth it for my wedding. No need to compromise quality for my BIG DAY!! They did hair/makeup for me, my mom, and my MOH, and also makeup for one of my bridemaids. Everyone looked gorgeous and they were impressed with how fast they were!!
Mari and Rita were amazing to work with throughout the wedding planning process and up to the day of my wedding. They respond quickly to emails and phone calls and are so easy to work with.
They are very flexible and cater to any request as best they can - Almost immediately after my makeup was done I cried, and without a second thought they put me back in the chair and reapplied everything that I messed up! They even stayed after all our hair and makeup was done while we waited for our photographer to come so we could get a few "getting ready" pictures.
I did a lot of research before selecting My Cinderella's Dream - they are more responsive, their price is better than other vendors and they come on-site to service you for the event which most others do not.
If I did it again, I'd select Cinderella's dream in a heartbeat! Thanks Mari & Rita for making me and my entire wedding party look fabulous!
I can not express how completely in awe I was at the work Mari and Rita provided my bridesmaids and I! It was absolutely everything I dreamed of!!! Airbrush is totally worth it it stayed on all day/night long and I looked beautiful and flawless!!! My hair was amazing, seriously no complaint what so ever and I can not thank you girls enough because my morning was completely stress free and relaxed and you guys made sure all my girls were taken care of!! My wedding was simply amazing and I honestly felt like Cinderella, all thanks to these two special ladies, the laughs, the talks with Mari , the memories, and my pictures, with happy tears in my eyes I can go on forever how truly grateful I am for making looking absolutely stunning for my husband on my wedding day!! Love you girls so much !!
Words cannot express how happy both myself and bridesmaid were with services provided by both Rita and Mari. They do a phenomenal job with both hair and makeup. You can also tell that they really love what they do as they take great pride in their work. Both Rita and Mari were extremely helpful throughout the wedding planning process. They travel to your location which is one less stressor for the big day! Mari is a great listener with a huge amount of patience! I would highly recommend them to anyone! I am truly going to miss chatting with them!
I was recently married (11/8/13) and used My Cinderella's Dream for hair and makeup for myself, mom and bridesmaids. I cannot say enough how great they were from the trials to the actual wedding day. Mari and Rita are excellent and so professional. They made me feel comfortable from the first time I met them and even let me go back for a second hair trial as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my hair. The day of the wedding they were so professional and prompt. They came to me (which is a huge stress reliever for any bride to not have to travel for hair and makeup) and everyone looked stunning from their work. They were so efficient it was so obvious they are so good at what they do. They were even willing to make changes and all of my girls loved them. I had some bridesmaids who have been in many weddings and were highly, highly impressed with their work. They made me look amazing and I truly felt like a princess! I highly recommend them to any bride-to-be!!
Mari and Rita did my sister's wedding and had to have them for mine!
Working with Mari and Rita was truly a pleasure. From the day of my trial to my wedding day, I knew exactly what was going to be done and how it was going to be executed which helped me be at ease. Everyone complimented my hair and makeup all night long. Even after sweating and dancing, people were impressed at how great I still looked!! I felt truly beautiful and felt like royalty with how great my hair and makeup were done. Mari and Rita are true professionals, they're fun to be around, and made the process easy and stress free. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to look FABULOUS on her wedding day!!
Mari and Rita were amazing for my wedding! They were always available to answer any of my questions prior to my wedding, they were prompt and professional. They did my hair and my bridal parties hair and make up and everyone looked stunning!!! Completely flawless!!! In addition, on the day of my wedding there were 4 other family members that were by me while I was getting ready. They asked them if they had time to also do there hair and make up and they didn't blink an eye! Trust me.....if you use Cinderella's Dream you would not be disappointed, they also did my hair for another bridal party I was in out of 9 girls and they all looked beautiful. This weekend they are also doing one of my best friends sisters wedding in Vermont.....I am sure everyone of them will look like a dream!
I have several clients who after consulting with other vendors made the decision to utilize My Cinderella's Dream for their wedding day.
Mari and Rita have a wonderful talent for producing the most beautiful brides and bridal parties all while being very professional and accommodating when it comes to the "Big" day, no stress for the bride or bridal party.
As a professional myself it's refreshing to see the level of service that they provide to all of their brides. They really go above and beyond!
I hired Rita and Mari to do the makeup for my June 23, 2012 wedding in NYC last year and it was one of the BEST wedding planning decisions I made. From the outset they were both so sweet and offered great suggestions. I hardly ever wear makeup and was nervous about my trial but they put me at ease, offering great ideas. They knew exactly what I wanted and made me incredibly comfortable. The one thing I remember from my trial was Mari trying about 6 different lipsticks on me to find the right one! The color she chose is basically the only lip color I've ever actually liked and now I carry it around with me everywhere! My mother fell in love with them at the trial and could not stop raving.
Leading up to our wedding there was a really serious heatwave in NYC. I got really nervous about my makeup running and decided to switch to airbrushing at the last minute. Nervous, I texted Mari from my rehearsal dinner, the night before the wedding, and she responded! She and Rita were spectacular the day of and really put me at ease. The days leading up to my wedding were full of unexpected stress but they were a sweet, fun, and calming presence the morning of. My bridesmaids all loved them and LOVED the job they did on our hair and makeup. My friends could not stop raving about how happy they were with Rita and Mari's work. Also worth noting is that my bridal party had a huge range of skin tones and hair types/lengths, yet these ladies were able to handle every situation expertly. They absolutely made me feel beautiful on my wedding day and I wish they could do my makeup every day!
I absolutely recommend Mari and Rita to anyone getting married in the NY/NJ area. They are amazing ladies!
My search for makeup and hair people started and ended with Mari and Rita! They work effortlessly with each other and are professional yet are still one of the girls while you get ready. They arrived on time as promised and are down to earth, warm, and calm. They did an amazing job with both makeup and hair. Not only were they completely professional in every way, but they were extreme flexible and honestly fit right in to all the preparations surrounding me that day!
A bride will travel near and far to make sure she finds the right person to get her hair done for one the most important days of her life. Mari went above and beyond to make sure I was 100% satisfied and most importantly treated me and my maid of honor like friends!
Mari took the extra time to ensure that my hair stayed put. It rained on my wedding day (but not on my parade!), and thanks to Mari, our hair stayed looking incredible the entire evening despite the weather conditions, and a lot of "BAD DANCING"!! Mari was calm, cool & collected, even though I wasn't! She did my hair and I looked/felt fantastic & gorgeous!
Rita did my make up, and I looked/felt fantastic & wonderful! She listened when I said that I normally don’t wear a lot of makeup, but that I did want my eyes to pop. I ended up looking like me, just a little more glamorous!
In my eyes/mind my wedding was a cross between The Great Gatsby & Casablanca and Mari and Rita from My Cinderella's Dream helped us to reflect that look!
Their expertise and professionalism were very reassuring on the big day! The absolute best hair and makeup ladies in all of New Jersey. I cannot say enough about Mari and Rita from My Cinderella's Dream.
Potential Brides: These ladies are talented, kind, and accommodating. I'd recommend them to anyone getting married!! As a bride who planned the majority of my wedding on my own, it was important that I choose reliable, trustworthy vendors. I highly recommend My Cinderella’s Dream!
My search for makeup and hair people started and ended with Mari and Rita. Mari is very dedicated to have happy clients, so whatever it is she will make sure you will be happy. After my first trial she agreed to take me in again as I wasn't in love with the way my makeup was done. She worked with me and made me feel very comfortable. I have to say I am glad I didn't have to look further because these two women are professionals and they made my girls and me look and feel great on the day of my wedding. Thank you!
Mari and Rita were so wonderful to work with. I knew from my trial with them, that they were the only people I wanted for my Big Day! They really listened to what I wanted and made my bridal party and I look stunning. I was so pleased with my hair and make up and what was an even bigger plus, they come to you! Your wedding day should be as least stressful as possible, and they made it just that. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you for making me feel like a such a princess!
I used My Cindrella's Dream for my wedding. Rita and Mari were great! They arrived at my house around 9:00 AM the day of the wedding to do hair and makeup for my sister and me. I was a little worried that my hair and makeup would not hold up until about 4 PM when we started taking pictures ( a lot on the beach) but it held up all night without a problem. I would definitely recommend them!!! Thank you Mari and Rita for helping to make my wedding day a success.
Mari and Rita are so talented and easy to work with! When I first met them for my trial, I immediately knew that I wanted to hire them for our wedding. Mari and Rita are down to earth, warm, and calm. They also did an amazing job with our hair and makeup! I had a morning wedding (10am) and Mari and Rita were at my house at 5:30am on the dot. They had all 7 of us done at about 8:30am. Everything went smoothly and everyone was happy with their hair and makeup. I highly recommend My Cinderella's Dream!
Everything Mari said she would do she did... she said "you should be and feel your most beautiful on your wedding day" and she made it happen! I have always loved girly things, but I am more of a plain Jane... somehow Mari worked her magic and transformed my everyday look into an amazing bride that stepped out of the pages of Vogue (my friends comments, not mine). I don't think anyone believed it was really me and were so happy to see my transformation. I still looked like me, but my very best version and it was money well spent (eventhough we were on a budget, it was SO important & worth every penny). I cannot tell you how many compliments I received and my new husband, his parents, my parents and even my little brother could not be prouder of me! Many, many thanks Mari for making my dreams come true, you are an angel.
I enjoyed my experience with Mari and My Cinderella's dream. The makeup and hairstyles were great without looking TOO done-up. We had to sign a contract pretty early, which is my only complaint. We had some change in mind late in the game and they wouldn't accomodate, but it looked so good that it made up for it.
I used MCD for my wedding in April to do hair and makeup for myself, my mom and my sister. MCD is VERY reasonably priced compared to others I contacted and had a ton of positive reviews online so I knew I would be in good hands.
I met Mari at her studio and brought her pictures of how I thought I wanted my hair. Mari offered to try another hairstyle if I wasn’t 100% in love with it but told her it was fine and we moved onto the makeup. She listened when I said I normally don’t wear a lot of makeup, and I ended up looking like me, just a little more dolled up. The trial was a lot of fun and I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. A few days later, I looked at pictures from my trial and decided I wanted my hair a little differently. Mari was quick to suggest I come in for another trial at no charge. At my second hair trial, I knew that the hair style was the one I’d be walking down the aisle with. Mari also set me up to get my hair glazed and cut at a local salon the week before the wedding, so I got to see her for a third time. Leading up to the wedding, I felt like I had seen Mari once every few weeks, and a part of me is said that I won’t be seeing her anymore...but I’m glad we’ll be able to keep in touch on Facebook!
The morning of the wedding, Mari and Rita arrived at the venue before me, my mom and sister arrived. It was the first time I had met Rita but she was very nice. Although there were only 3 of us getting ready, Mari and Rita kept us on pace so that we finished on time. I didn’t have to stress about timing and I was able to relax and enjoy the getting ready process (despite it starting at 7:30 am!) We finished in plenty of time for me to get dressed and then have all our photos done before the ceremony. I felt so beautiful that day, and my mom and sister looked beautiful as well. As a bride who planned the majority of our wedding on my own, it was important that I choose reliable, trustworthy vendors. I highly recommend My Cinderella’s Dream!
I cannot say enough about Mari and Rita from My Cinderella's Dream. As you can see from my wedding date, I got married right after Hurricane Sandy hit the NJ/NY area. Mari and Rita were in touch with me all week and were so reassuring. Instead of getting ready at my parents house where I grew up, we were relocated to a hotel because my town had no power. I was disappointed, but Mari and Rita were so accomodating and were there for us. My bridesmaids, aunt, mom, and myself looked beautiful!!!! We all could not have been happier! Mari and Rita, thank you for helping us all look our best and feel our best, especially after such a tough week. Potential Brides: These ladies are talented, kind, and accomodating. I'd recommend them to anyone getting married!!!
I got married this past October and let me tell you I absolutely LOVED working with Mari & Rita.
Mari is a Doll the second you meet her you feel like you have known her for years! She took her time with my trail to ensure I felt happy and comfortable day of.
On my wedding day it felt like an old friend was coming to help me get ready!
She did a wonderful job and the proof are in the pictures :)

She did my hair and all of my bridesmaids.
