    We are contemplating bringing our own photographer as well, it’ good to hear that other brides haven’t run into too many issues.

      I've been told by my TA that if your photographer is in fact a guest at your wedding - the resort can't really do anything. I think thats why a lot of brides are going this route. The resort just has way too much red tape when it comes to outside vendors. I have to pay $90/pp for a day pass for my hair and makeup people! Boooo. Oh well. Id rather do that than chance the salon and look like a donkey! ha ha

          The resort salon does not suck! I had my hair done there and so did my mom and sister (also MOH). We all were very happy with the results!

            Hey, How does it work with getting day passes for vendors outside the resort to come in? want to book someone to come and do make up, but when I've mentioned it to Eugenia she's been a bit evasive!! can we buy the passes from the reosrt or do we have to go through the WC? any advice?!

              ha ha - I honestly can't tell you how good/bad the salon is as i've never personally used them. But reading through this entire thread..i've gotten a tiny impression that they aren't the best.
              When brides have posted their reviews a few have said they went back to their rooms to re-do their hair. But on the flip side i think others have said their hair/makeup were fine.
              I guess for me- I just didn't want to take any chances. I'm spending A LOT on my photog...but if i my hair and makeup are poopy then its all kind of a big waste. As i'm not confident in my own skills to 'fix' if I need to.
              Its just one thing i don't want to have to worry about on the wedding day. If i'm not happy with how I look - I know i'll be pretty upset. To me - its more important than if the cake turns out. ha ha

                She's probably evasive because they want u to use 'their' services. But they can't force you.
                I'm not sure how you go about actually getting the passes. I'm thinking you'd just let your WC know who's coming in from the outside and you'll need 'X' number of passes.
                Like I said - i dont think they can force you to use their people/services other than photography. There's A LOT of red tape around that. But I've heard of other brides bringing in their own DJ's..flowers..hair/makeup.
                Maybe i'll ask my WC at Tulum and see what she says

                  KRama- thanks lol i feel better knowing you were happy with yours

                   

                  Sunshine2680- Ok I understand what you meant now ha ha I have a friend coming that is not professional but still pretty good with doing hair for fun so she can fix mine up if turns out looking bad, my bridesmaids hair is pretty straight forward so that should be no problem ha ha

                   

                   

                  Side note: just under 3 weeks til we leave!!! woooo!!

                    After reading through this thread I have noticed a few girls have said that there hair looked good but the salon burnt it pretty good so they had to get it cut after the wedding.  I have long hair and I am really nervous that they might burn it bad.  I am still on the fence on getting my hair done there but I am planning on practicing with my hair before I leave so that if I get down there and decide against the salon I can do my hair myself (I am not doing an up-do or anything so it shouldn't be hard anyways).  Also I have noticed a lot of girls questioning make-up so I thought i would give an alternate idea.  I am going to have a make-up artist come and give me lessons on bridal make-up so I can do it myself that day.  I was quoted $100 for the lesson but I don't think that is too bad considering you will get a better idea on how to do your make-up for any special events!

                      What was wrong with the spa's hair and make-up?
