    Having a party at a Mexican restaurant is such a fun idea! I like that it sticks with the theme.

    I've read this entire thread and I'm pretty sure that only one of the ladies has commented on hair/makeup. I can't be sure but I want to say that it was Mesita and she had nothing but good to say!

      Anyone thinking about doing flip flops for everyone in the OOT bag? I am getting married on the beach so heels aren't really an option...
      Thanks for letting us know! That'll save you a little on the OOT bags
      I thought about doing flip flops, but the only thing that holds me back is sizing. I guess if you have a fairly small guest list it would be easy enough to get shoe sizes. But, I kind of like the idea of completely surprising the guests with the OOTs & contents.

        We will only have around 12-15 coming, I may do a small OOT bag, but nothing fancy.

        We got a suit for my fiancee last weekend and I am in the process of deciding on a dress, then I am ready to not have to do much til October! :)

        I am wondering the same thing about hair/make-up. I don't want to look like a circus clown on my wedding day.

          I think you can pay for a test-run the day before, but what I plan to do is have my makeup and hair done around noon (wedding is at 5pm), and if it's atrocious, I'll have plenty of time to go back to my room and redo/undo it myself with my friends' help.

          Are you planning to bring your own makeup for them to apply, or let them use their own? I think bringing your own stuff minimizes the likelihood of something going wrong...

                Has anyone seen a price list from the spa? The menu online doesn't list them. I emailed, but haven't heard back yet.

                  If you go to the Mille Spa Menu page from the EPM website and look on the right side, there is a link to the price list in pdf format.

                    I have a copy that Yamina sent me if you would like me to email it to you. Prices are pretty standard. What you would expect in the US. I was surprised!

                      Thanks so much, ladies, I found it! For those of you getting married in October, when do you arrive? We are staying til the 20th, so I was wondering if there was any overlap! :)

                      As laid back as I was after we booked, now that it's only about 3 months away, I keep thinking of all these details!! :)

                      Anyone planned with their photog when to take pics? Before/After the ceremony? May depend on the number of guests/family/bridesmaids...since mine is so small, we are keeping it pretty minimal to save money.

                      We have had a few more people add on to our group, so I am going to add a cocktail hour now (we were just doing the basic package before) - we can either use the Revive Bar or the Spice Terrace. I'm thinking the Revive - our whole wedding theme is sort of casual Mexico vibe, and even though the Spice is indoors and air conditioned, it just doesn't have anything to do with the rest of the style of our wedding.

                      Any insight? :)
