    Good to know!  I think I will give it a go!

      angelov321 can you please send me an email at


      The samething happened to me. When Wilma emailed me, she said that I had already reserved the cocktail hour spot and time along with the ceremony gazebo. I hadnt reserved anything at all with Dulce. Maybe the other girls were doing their jobs poorly, which is why Wilma took over. Nonetheless, Im happy with the switch. :)

        I have also been debating the make-up issue.  I have a good friend who is coming to the wedding and he is going to do my hair but I still worry about the make-up.  I guess I will have to wait until it gets closer.

          Hi, I was married at the ASP on May 14th, 2010.. I actually was undecided about my hair and make-up issue as well.. When the day of my wedding came, I was so excited and at that point I really did not care,( I had a hair trial the day before)  but it all feel in to place.. Hugliana at the Salon took care of my hair and makeup and she did an Amazing job, the only thing I made sure she used was my own  lipgloss/lipstain that actually lasted all day.. I am still getting compliments on how beautiful my hair and makeup turned out.. P.S. I loved the Ochard flower they provided me with at the Salon,the day of my trial,  one of the ladies picked an orchard from the garden and put it in my hair so I can see.. I ofcourse loved it, I figured if I am getting married on an island I have to have that in my hair!!!  I paid extra for it and I had a headpiece, but after looking at the pictures I am so happy I took everyone's advise and used the Orchard.. Once Again I should stress that getting married at the ASP was a Dream Come true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              We were only allowed to use $300 at the spa if you had $1500 vac dollars and if you had $750 vac dollars you could only use $150.

              while im on the spa subject, does anyone know what the tipping policy is there as far as spa and salon services?

               

              lastly, fyi..im in the process of typing up my planning thread from all the stuff i have collected over the past 10 months...its taking a long time to put togethr but i shoudl be done in another week, and i promise if you are anything like me (ocd, anal, too organized) you should love it

                Hi Ladies!!!  Well I finally decided to go back thru and read this entire thread.  Very informative.  What sucks is that my work blocks a lot of things so most of the photos and personal photo links are blocked so I'll have to look at those once I get home.  But I definitley learned some things from reading this. 

                 

                Just a little observation...

                As of right now we have no idea how many ppl are coming - not even a guess.  So I am so worried about not having enough nights booked to do a cocktail hour and private function.  I was originally under the impression that the "dinner for 35 guests" meant I could have a dinner reception anywhere.  Well from reading this thread I realized that is not the case and that dinner meant in one of the restaurants that can accommodate 35 guests.  If I want a reception/private function (which we definitely will be having) I have to pay out of pocket.  WOW that was a shocker.  We kinda based our budget on having that included and now I am worried I'd have to fork out money if I don't meet the min. 

                 

                And a little rant...

                Also, when I see some of you ladies say you have 50, 60, 80+ guests booked I get so jealous....especially when its months in advance.  We really don't have that many ppl that we are inviting and most of our friends are procrastinators and very low on funds.  We are giving them over a year to plan and save for this but I think when it comes down to it everyone is going to put it off until the last minute and then have excuses for this and that.  I don't want to have to hunt ppl down and beg them and convince them to go.  I do that all the time on our yearly vacations and its not something I want to do for my wedding.  But I know that is part of the deal when you decide to do a DW.  I think my issue is that I know I would go above and beyond for my friends and do whatever it takes but I never feel that is reciprocated.  Kinda opens my eyes to the company I keep. = (   Well I just hope that our friends and family surprise us by booking early and staying a couple of nights.  I really want this to be the most memorable time for not only us but for them as well.

                 

                Thanks for listening!!

                  I was pretty ticked that so few of my friends/family decided to come too, but at the end I was actually really glad that only a few came. It let me actually pay attention to everybody, and now I know who my real friends are. :-)

                    Honestly, we only invited our close family and bridal party on purpose.  We didn't want a huge crowd -- which was our reason for having a DW in the first place.  I do get a little envious sometimes too about the large groups, but I'm really glad we planned it to be small.  I'm excited to spend a few days celebrating with the small group we are bringing.  We will most likely have between 25-30.

                      We will probably have around 25-30 people as well. I honestly dont care a whole lot on the numbers once/if I get my 75Nights =)
