This sounds like another good (free) idea :)

Yes, I made the reservations for the day of our arrival through the WC... I just sent her an email and asked if she could make them for us, and it's not a problem.

We also want to do the bonfire... Still havent decided on a photographer I love Juan but hes not available... Trying to find a rental company for either white folding chairs or Chivari style chairs as I dislike chair covers so much! Any help would be appreciated! I am looking forward to Sarahs big day and her pictures in the upcoming weeks....

thanks

In the beginning, getting ahold of her is very frustrating... Did you complete the reservation form and everything onlinehuh.gif You should be fine if you have done that. Also, you won't hear much from her until you get a little closer to your date. Again, very frustrating, but that seems to be the way that they work. I would just keep emailing & things ~ she will get back to you.

Hi Riu Brides!

I was wondering if anyone is using the hotel salon/spa for their make-up and hair or are you using an outside vendor? Have you heard any feed back about the hotel the hotel salon?

I have personally stayed at the resort for vacation & our surprise engagement last year. I went to the salon for a couples massage and a manicure & pedicure. The massage was absolutely wonderful but the manicure & pedicure was okay. I saw a couple of brides get their hair done for weddings and it looked very nice but I am not sure about make up. Can't wait to here about some other experiences......

I am having them do my hair and if needed redo my manicure. I will do my own makeup. I do know that it is suggested you make your appointments ahead of time, the spa gets busy ~ or so I'm being told. Now, have I made my appointment yet? No, but it's on the list. Plus, I'm not stressing becuase if I have to, Jay's mom is a stylist, and I'll make her do my hair. :-)

I have talked to one other bride about the salon and they are great with the hair but the makeup isn't so great. She had a friend do hers. I think I am going to book my hair appointment and maybe a trial there and figure out the makeup later.

 

Maybe when we finally get a review from Sarah we will know for sure. I cannot wait to hear from her - anyone know when she gets back?

I believe that she gets back on Saturday, so hopefully she'll post on Sunday or Monday her review, I can't wait.
