I was there 2 years ago in November and we would all go to dinner together. We did a group dinner at Asiana and one at the Mexican restaurant at the Gran Porto. I think the key is to split up into groups. We never had a problem if we did it this way.

hey everyone, I have a quick photography question.  I know the resort uses Funever Photos.  Does anyone know of another bride who used them.  I was wondering how they came out.  I am looking at other photographers and found two that I may be interested in.  Are ya'll paying for a room for the photographers for one night or paying the outside vendor fee? 

 

I did contact Fernando to get prices for my wedding next june 2011.

 

Here is what he wrote in the email:

this is my price list for hair and make up ok
 
trial hair and make up $180
day of the event $350
 
bridesmaids and family
only make up $90
only hair $50 up to $80

 

Does anyone know the rates for the hotel for hair and makeup for bridesmaid and family? 

 

Thanks,

Heidi

Hi Ladies,

 

       I know Fernando's prices do seem very high but he really is amazing. Based on the work I have seen he does an incredible job and all his reviews have been outstanding.

 

I was told for hair and make up you don't have to pay the vendor fee if they are only there for three hours. Again in true Royal form who you may get a different answer depending on what WC you have.

 

Here are the rates for Spazul for hair and make up.

 

Hair Services
Women’s Haircut
$45-$75

Men’s Haircut
$35-$55

Blow Dry
$30-$45

Flat or Curling Iron
$10-$20

Braids Half Head
$50

Braids Full Head
$100

Single Braid
$1 Each

Up Do’s
$40-$70

 

Make-Up
Trial
$45

Application
$60

We are doing a 3 hour private reception for our welcome party and are paying $30 pp for open bar and a 3 course dinner.

 

 

 

These price differences based on which wc you have is ridiculous!  I was quoted $60 pp for open bar and 3 course dinner!  We thought that was way too high for the welcome party, so we're doing the open bar with hot & cold hors d'oeurves for $30 pp for only 2 hours.

WOW!! That is ridiculous! I did book in November so I'm not sure if that is the reason for the price difference. But I would mention it to your WC. Who do you have?
