    Welcome to all the new brides!!!!  We're happy to help any way we can.  The best advice we can all give is to go back and read the thread from about page 400.  Grab some wine and soak it all in as many of your questions will be answered.

    is it true what Ive been reading that there is an outside vendor fee of $500?  if so what does this apply to?

     

    also did any past brides have their hair/makeup done at the salon at Azul?

     

    The thing that worries me most about a DW, is not being able to have a hair/makeup trial...my hair sucksssssssssss and I dont think I can trust anyone to get it right and get it to stay without having a trial first.

     

    any thoughts?


    Vendor fee: Any outside vendor.  If you choose anything that's not on Karisma's list, you pay the $500 per vendor.

     

    Trial: You can get a trial down there.  It's about half the cost of the wedding-day hair cost.

    You get the $50 back when you book your rooms.

          you ladies are wonderful!

           

          At what point should I get a TA?

           

          we are going down Sept 4th to decide btwn AS and EDR

           

          I was hoping to pick a place and date while down there...is this possible?  I was reading that a lot of girls had to "wait for confirmation"

           

          should I book the TA after I have a date?

           

          or should I contact someone before we go?

              These are fabulous! Do you mind sharing where you had them made? FI and I are looking to do something similar though are trying to keep the cost down. We want to do boarding passes for the invitations.

                    A day pass costs $80 but I believe it's cheaper if someone is coming for a wedding.  If you have a big group staying at the resort and maybe only one or two who need a day pass you may be able to negotiate free passes on the day of the wedding.
