    Amie: I also wanted Sara Tamargo to do my hair and makeup.  If I have to pay $90 for her to come on-site, then I might as well have her do hair/makeup for my bridesmaids too.

     

    I finally bought my wedding dress on Friday and I guess I was late in ordering, because I have to pay a $150 rush charge and they said it will barely arrive at the beginning of June or the end of May (my wedding is June 11, 2011).  Hopefully it comes in faster than they said, so I don't have to stress.

    Next I need to pick bridesmaid dresses, because they apparently take 12-16 weeks for the order.  I feel like I'm behind on everything.  haha Oh well!  I'm not stressed, so that's good.

      Hi Ladies!

       

      I have decided on this resort for my wedding!  I am very excited!  Wedding to be July 2012....

       

      For those of you who were married here - can I ask what the avg cost per guest was?  Red tag has some offers at 800pp plus taxes, but also says about 1700 pp plus tax!!! 

       

      My family is by no means well off! and I mean, I much prefer the cost of 800 pp!!!

       

       

      What were you averaging the cost out for people?

       

       

      Would be much appreciated!  Thanks <3

        I looked up vacation prices on expedia and applevacations. The price I got there is what I quoted to my guests.

        I paid for everything at the end with my Visa.  There were no charges added for currency conversion, which was shocking to me.  They explained it, but I didn't really understand what they were saying. 

        My cost for guests was right around 600-800pp depending on length of stay.  But we went in April which is busy season.

          Hi Everyone!

           

          I hope all you future brides are enjoying the planning!  I have a question for any brides that got married last October, Patoru, etc...  have you received your marriage licence from the reosrt yet?  I know they tell you it take 3 months to arrive.  I've sent Eugenia multiple emails for at least a status of when they will ship and I haven't heard a peep. 

           

          This is starting to stress me out!

            Thanks for that.  I did speak with Eugenia again and she told me that all outside vendors have to pay $90 USD and that if he brings someone I will need to pay for them as well.  I don't know if I should question Eugenia again or just let it go.  Has anyone used DJ Bijan recently?  If so can you clear up whether there was a fee for him (and his wife...I have heard that she comes as well to take video) coming to the resort.

I'm trying to convince OH that 240usd isn't too much to pay for hair and make up but IT IS, i'm a hairdresser and i wouldn't expect anyone to pay that!!! 

             

            This is cut and pasted from the email she sent me!!

             

            Hola Amie,
            Sorry but I dont know this company, from other suppliers just DJ Bob and DJ Bijan because both always do a lot a wedding parties (DJ Bob is the main one because has more parties), and also please keep in mind that If you going to hire an external suppliers (I dont mean DJ Bob or DJ Bijan because they have arragementd already with Bahia) you need to cover the day pass charge, it is 90usd per person,

             

            Hope that helped
