My girls and I are getting manis/pedis at Veronicas on 5th avenue and I didnt need that either. Hope this helps
    Is it a big price difference to have it done at Veronica's? Have you been there before or know their quality of work?

        astreit- very cute!

        LadyDi- yeah you can. . . I just liked the idea of doing my own thing. However, it wasn't a huge difference in price (maybe a couple hundred) so I suggest pricing it out, especially if you have a large group.

        duprk452- Veronicas is a big price diff. From what I have found on here everyone is very happy with the work there. $15 for mani and pedi (i think) and $30 for a massage there. Big diff from the spa! I can't seem to get a hold of them to book though, hmmm...
        yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

            I really like the idea of the fire dancers to entertain our guests, but i think 600$ is kind of ridiculous. Has anyone on here contracted fire dancers from somewhere other than the resort?

              Hi yes we are having fire dancers are our welcome dinner and $600 was actually not bad. The norm outside of the resort for 7 fire dancers for a 30 min show was $1000!!!!!

              However every Friday night at the Blue Parrot there is a fire show. They are on late though like 11pm. You do have to pay the cover charge to get in so it might not be any cheaper depending on if you want to have your guests pay for the cover and you cover the cost.

I have been working with Carole and has responded well to me and my fiance. But the rates she has given me the internet prices beat which is bothering me a lot anyone else having this problem?
                I am with you on the TA rates vs the internet rates. We still have not fully decided whether or not to go through a TA. My parents say that they rather book themselves, if they can save 1-200 dollars on each person, that is a big chunk of change. I certainly know there are advantages to using a TA though, including if there are any problems. I am now starting to get VERY concerned about the potential of the resort overbooking - especially with so many weddings during our week. It seems that there's no real guarantee though, even TA's can't guarantee that you won't be bumped. I'm hoping that since it's low season there won't be as much of a chance of the resort selling out, but I really have no idea. And you ladies who are inviting so many people make me even more nervous! haha. Anyway, I don't know what we are going to do. I have found VERY reasonable rates on the internet....

                  I know this has probably been asked before (so sorry, Im lazy today and don't want to search, haha!) but do they serve a childrens meal at the reception and do we pay the adult price for the kids? thanks!

                    Hi they do have children's meals options (chicken fingers, burgers, french fries etc...) They are $15 per child Zulma told us when we are on our site visit.
