Hi Jenny, for all your wedding planning options, you'll be referring to this website (http://www.film-your-day.com/weddings) a lot!  Looks like current approved photographers are Caribe Photo & Royale Photo.  And DJ's are DJ all Music and Mega DJ.

Hi! Ladies - Work has consumed my life the last 6 months so i am very happy it has finally slowed down and I can return back to planning my wedding and of course this thread. I finally read all the posts that I have missed since December and I am super happy for all the new brides. I hope I have the most updated list. :)

For the girls that have already used the salon- how much was it to have your bridesmaids' hair done? Thanks!

They used to have a really nice spa "menu" on their website but I guess it's gone.  I had it linked on our wedding website for our guests.  I was quoted $86 (plus 10% service charge to the spa - not owned by Karisma) to have my daughter's hair done and our wedding is next month.  You should ask your wedding consultant so they can lock in the rate.  I'm sure they'll be going up every chance they get!

It can vary on how you find the prices, but usually it is  a per person cost. Kids will be cheaper. There are certain rooms that can handle families- but the prices also vary and you have to get them booked in advance. We had a family we 3 young boys, and they reserved the 'family suite'. It's actually 2 rooms with a large sliding door connecting them. One room has a queen bed, the other 2 singles and a pull out couch.

This sounds about right. It's really too bad they have removed the price lists. I am sure if you as your WC they can send one to you. As well, if I remember correctly- a manicure was about $45, pedicure $55 (about a year ago)

Argh, I wanted to pay for my BM's hair and makeup, but given the spa prices, I don't think we can afford it ($168 for makeup, seriously?!).  Have any of you seen hair/makeup deal being advertised on the main page of BDW? $100 for hair and makeup for BM's and $150 for the bride by Sara Tamargo.  It looks like she does beautiful work.  I am trying to figure out whether it's worth it and will save me $ considering I'm sure I'd be charged the $800 outside vendor fee if I went this route.

Thanks

 

Hi Jenny, I've searched and I can't find websites for them.  However, I haven't asked my WC about it, so maybe they do have one...? Let me know if you hear anything :)

 

I don't know if it helps for comparison, I got a quote back from DJ Mannia today (who I've heard is highly recommended!) for $990 for 4 hrs.  I was thrilled until I realized I would still owe another $800 on top of this to Karisma. 

 

Question for you ladies...so as time passes it seems like our guest list gets smaller and smaller, which is ok with me; I'm thinking we'll likely have 30 guests, max 40 and that's pushing it.  Initially I was thinking 50 guests, so I thought for sure I'd hire a DJ.  Now I'm wondering should I still do a DJ or do something more intimate like a mariachi band for dinner and IPod music after? Thoughts?

I am full of questions today! One more for previous brides or ladies who have previously visited the resort: Are guests provided with a list of restaurants/amenities/map of the resort upon their arrival at AS or in their rooms? I am just trying to figure out whether it's necessary to include this information in a welcome booklet?
