So understandably I am a bit nervous to use the onsite spa now, but I cannot justify spending the $800 outside vendor fee for a outside company.
Any opinions /photos/info you have would be much appreciated!!
My sisters, mother and I all had our hair and make up done at the spa...it turned out fantastic! We were very specific in what we wanted and had them change a few things as we were going along on our hair, but they were very accommodating and not "irritated" at all by us wanting them to change some things as they went along. I had taken a picture of what I wanted for my hair and make up and they replicated it well. My sisters looked through all of their pictures (they have a ton) and just picked something out from there. It took a bit longer than my WC said it would and put us a little bit behind for the day (about 30 minutes)...but they did a fabulous job! I would recommend the spa to anyone!! I did not have a trial of my hair or make up and it turned out GREAT! Also....included in my package my FI and I got 15% off of spa services...the fine print says for ONLY the bride and groom...but since I paid for everyone's hair and make up they put it on one check and we got 15% off EVERYONE's hair and make up! So that was really nice as well.
