    It says we have to wash our hair before coming to the salon. Is this true, anyone? they don't wash our hair???


    Thanks. That's so steep. But what's new with AS? They actually have a package that include hair, make-up, make-up trial and pedicure for like 220. Since I won't need the make up or makeup trial I am going to se if they will swap that for two more updos. Hopefully they will go for that. I really want to pick this up for the girls so here's hoping they'll go along with it. 

     

    Also, not sure about the washing before you come; however, your hair will hold so much better if it is not freshly washed. I would wash it the day before and have them work with your dirty hair. I bet it will actually hold and probably look better. That's probably what I will do.

      Oh Chong...what time are your events? And what time are you getting ready? Are using the bridal suite? I wonder if we'll have any overlap.

        Adios Ladies!!!!  I'll definitely post some info when I get back.

         

        BTW:  Amybermuda I loved, loved, loved your pics!!!!!


        Loving the flowers..so pretty! I was worried that navy would be too dark for the "beach" but now that I think I'm happy with my colors...I can start brainstorming...Hope FI is on board with these

        So.today was a pretty crappy morning..Boss is just not being nice today...but I get an email from Kiara and I qualify for the Free Sweet Wedding with 14 days in the jacuzzi swim up PLUS 15 guest room nights wherever....

        So...there is more $$$ saved...so..if you are starying more than 7 nights in a different type room..I would ask and see if they'll give it to you too...

        Sorry you had a crappy morning

         

        Meredith, to qualify for the room upgrade all you should have to do is participate in the Webinar.  Unless the rules have changed since we did it. 

        Did you book BEFORE you participated in the webinar?

        I'm going to try, but I can see that not happening for me easily.

        Amanda, you are like the Queen of Savings! Who is your TA if you don't mind me asking? I'm going to ask but I'm thinking it won't fly.

I missed a few that arrived early but I just called the front desk, found their room and walked it over to them.

        Very good idea, thanks for the tip! You're like Martha Stewart when it comes to organization!

        Hey guys!!!  Sorry I have been out of touch.  I have been soooo busy with work...I hope I get everything done.  How are you ladies doing?!?!?  This new layout is hard to get used to!

        Yeah, the new layout is throwing a lot of us for a loop but I guess we just have to adjust. I can understand you being M.I.A. Your time is fastly approaching. Do you need help with anything or do you pretty much have most of it done?

            That's not a bad idea. I am still debating on my make-up :( I am not so confident that I will be successful at this by myself.

            Our wedding is at 530pm and we are planning to take some pictures before the ceremony (maybe for an hour). I have not decide on the time but I am thinking maybe 230pm? Assuming that it takes no more than an hour to get my hair ready, it will give me some time to maybe do my makeup and then get ready for our early rendezvou around 430ish?!?

             

            I am not planning to use the bridal suite so feel free to have it all to yourself! It says that you can only have 4 ppl at time (3 others beside you). I want my family and friends to drop by and help me get ready. So I decided to get ready in one of the rooms.

              Did anyone take a small steamer with you for your dress? Does the resort has one that we can borrow or have it done for us? Where did you hang your dress? Just on the hanger in the room?

               

              Thanks!

                I was worried about by colors being too dark also, but like Amanda, I didn't really want my colors to be tropical. So, I'm trying to lighten up my colors with other things like their bouquets and other decor. I guess if you look at my pics and think everything is too dark you'll know what NOT to do. Lol!

                Sorry you had a crappy morning BUT it's amazing that you got the Free Wedding AND are staying at AS for 14 days!! Has anyone else stayed that long?!
                 

                 

                Amanda, you are like the Queen of Savings! Who is your TA if you don't mind me asking? I'm going to ask but I'm thinking it won't fly.

                No way about the colors. I am sure that they are perfect. Where are your pics? I want to see them! 

                 

                Thanks, I am really trying to keep my wedding around budget. At first I thought we could do it for 13k and then it was around 20K. With some smart switches and some very persistant asks, I've saved some money and am back down to about 15k. That includes our travel and stay, my dress, etc... so for 70ish people, I can live with that. 

                 

                My TA is Camille Hutchinson with DW.com. Honestly I have had a ton of issues with her. She's the exact opposite of Amy in the organization and communication dept and it has been really tough to deal with. I have had to stay on her to get me the things I want but ultimately when my WC tells me no, I go to Camille and she has worked it out. So at least she does that!

                      Can you share info if you have any success with this?  I'd like to pay for the girls hair too - but I'm afraid $85 plus tip for 6 girls might be out of the budget.  If we can get a "package" for a bunch that might be workable.
