    I am seriously so crushed! The wedding photographer we liked and wanted to book is not available for our day! Who are you all using?

     

    Please help!

        Does anyone know if we need to get approval for an outside vendor, we want to book Victor Herrera Photography soon, but as we all know the resort is super slow in responding.  We just want to be sure before we put a huge deposit down.

         

        On a positive note, I made my hair and make-up appointments at the spa through the website and they have gotten back to me with a confirmation and answers to all my questions within a day!

          How far in advance should you book the spa for hair and make-up? Did you book your bridesmaids as well?

            I just booked this week and we are not getting married until November, I figured book as early as possible to get what you want.  I did not book my bridesmaids, once I got my confirmation, I sent an e-mail to them to book themselves and to mention that they are with me so they will get a similar time and hopefully be in the same area as me.

              I didn't reach Nayeli today because she was working with a large group and out of the office all day; but fortunately I reached someone else in the wedding department and May 4 at 4pm is available so I'm switching my date to May 4, 2013. Any other brides getting married that weekend?

                Do any of you ladies have a wedding website up that you would be willing to share?

                  I started booking all things spa in the end of January...about 4 months out. First was booking mine (hair/make-up, nails, trial hair and make-up) via their website and then/now just email back and forth with them. We are planning some extras for our wedding party....the Marine Wellness for all the guys and girls, mani pedi's for all the guys and either nails or hair or make up for the girls. The spa has been AMAZING! They put everything together for us on a spreadsheet with prices almost immediately. I also have a few guests who want their hair done and they just told me a few weeks ago. They were able to get them all in, and they will be charging them separately. With the gold package we get 15% off so putting it all on 1 bill, even if you're not paying for it all might be better for your bridesmaids wallets...just an idea.

                  Also, make sure you book your couples massage if you are getting one with your package! :) And timing for me worked out best to do my trial hair and make-up on Wednesday.

                  Here's how the timing works for a Saturday wedding- 5:30 ceremony(where guests get there at 5):

                  Nails: They suggest Friday

                  Hair:Bridesmaids go first in groups of 3 at noon (depends how many you have doing their hair) I go at 1pm, my Mother is in at 1:30pm, guests go in at 3.

                  Here's our "timeline" we did for them.....

                      Something else to think about... If you are delivering OOT bags to the rooms, they get delivered at turn down service. We have a welcome letter and timeline in the bag. We have our welcome cocktails on Thursday night when most people get in, which means they wouldn't see where they're supposed to meet us that night if they are already out for dinner. Sooooo, we found out we can do a small check in card that the front desk can give them, this way they know where to meet us that night. We also found that not as many people REALLY look at the website details as much as you think, so this was a must for us!

                      Here's what we had done:

                      The check In Card-

                      Check In Card   

                       

                       

                      The Timeline for all guests-this will be in the OOT bag-

                       

                      Itinerary.jpg

                       

                      Our Welcome letter-

                       

                      Welcome Letter.jpg

                      These are  the proofs, so the paper will make it pop, but just wanted to give you guys an idea. If anyone is interested in seeing our menus, favor cards, do not disturb sign, etc. let me know and I'll post them. :)
