    Hi Spides, I am also working with Estephania and she has been great, I'm just waiting to hear back from the spa regarding what make-up brand they use and if they had any pictures to send them.  I will let you know as soon as they send me something!

        Mine is March 19th 2011! When is yours? I'm actually nervous about the hair/make-up situation so I'm trying to get all the info I can! What package are you going with?

          Awesome! Mine is in a few weeks! I asked about hair and makeup last Thursday but am still waiting to hear back. Honestly I will probably not use them for makeup but I am also very picky with makeup and don't think they will have the brands I'm used to and that I like. I'm kind of a makeup snob I guess. :) If they ever answer my questions about it then I will set up a trial for hair and see how they do. I wish they would write back more quickly its so hard to plan when I don't hear back with in 24 hours! I just sent a long list of questions so well see how long it takes to hear back :) I'll let ya know! If I do use any of their salon services I can always email you some pics if I thought it was any good!

            Oh and I am going with the first package because my friend is giving us photos as a gift so we don't need that. I'm just adding the services I'm using. But if you are using a photographer I think the other packages are good

                Did she happen to tell you what brand of makeup they use ? I still haven't gotten a reply and I am desperate for any information!

                  NO! I wish... was so bummed about that, but honestly the answers are never thorough, so i wasnt surprized. It was really important for me to know that too and i asked a couple times about it and about the training that they have and this was the answer i got...

                   

                  "You can have it at the Spa, so you can feel comfortable we will give you a trial before you make the decision. And I think these way you can see if you want to have the service at the Spa or if you want to make it yourself.  We don`t have a online profile so you can see the works of the girls Spa".

                   

                  Hope that helps answer your question...

                   

                  Sooo...i  just made my own conclusion that they dont really get into makeup brands like we do here in the states because otherwise it would have been a simple answer. But i will be your guinea pig and get a trial and let you know how it goes and email you a picture. Who knows, maybe they are amazing and will totally surprize us.  I understand your frustrations because i was just as worried about it too...

                   

                  Im getting so nervous! I leave in 3 weeks and sent out an email on saturday and a couple in between and still waiting to hear back. I know they work weekends so i dont understand. when i booked the resort they told me i would always hear back within 24 hours so I was ok with that.  I just have SO much to do to get ready for the wedding i dont have time to wait 2-4 days for a response on the details. ughhhhh I guess im just used to immediate responses within the hour when working with people in the states.... my recommendation to you is dont wait until the end because its VERY STRESSFUL!!!!!!! Expect anywhere from 1-6 days for a response... I just hope its better when i get there. 

                   

                  Also, how have they been with you on keeping their word on costs of things? ive heard that they try to rip people off at the end,...im getting nervous about that but im just gonna have faith that will all be ok because i realy cant stress over that too right now... i just sent an email out totalling up everything so i will let you know how that goes. Hopefully it will go smoothly and i will let you know what they say!! 

                   

                  Are you renting a tent? I am going back and forth...our wedding is on the beach and reception cocktail on terrace...where is yours?

                   

                  Are there any other DVM brides out there that are going anytime soon?

                    OMG I'm excited for you!  I'm also doing the wedding on the beach and reception cocktail on the terrace, although I didn't even think of renting a tent! Wow that reply they sent you is pretty cryptic!

                     

                    The make-up is included in my package...but I HAVE to either have some sort of trial or see pics of what they have done in the past...I would be *massively* appreciative if you take a pic of your trial !

                     

                    What meal did you choose?  I think we're going to do the steak and chicken.

                      Hey Margin! Ok so i heard back! Yeah!! I was very pleased with Estephanias email and she seemed to be very positive about all my ideas! She didnt seem phased by any of my ideas and i feel more confident that she will be able to implement all my ideas in the way i had envisioned...yeah! so thats good news! She has been really busy with other weddings.... Also, she gave me the email of the spa lady, i think its better to contact the spa directly since they are the professionals in that area...maybe they can help us figure out the makeup/experience....Heres the email she gave me let me know if you hear anything back. im going to email them about my trial, exc...will let you know what they say! 

                       

                       spa.drevm@dreamsresorts.com orspa1.drevm@dreamsresorts.com

                       

                      Also just an FYI, she sent me a list of my totals for things, on the prices there have been no discretions about the costs of things. That is reassuring to me, i was worried from another review, but my experience has been fine so far and i dont get the sense that they are just out to rip me off at all.  I will let you know if there are any surprize costs they try to add when i get back, but i think they are pretty good about keeping their promises, and correcting any mistakes when one comes up...(when i first tried to book a long time ago and there was a little bit of a problem getting them to stick by their original room rates, but they ended up honoring their word. Since then, Their prices have stayed consistent and once when there was an error on a price of 3 people staying room, i told them and Eunice was great and quickly changed it and honored our contract).

                       

                      I will post an honest review when i get back. Reviews are so helpful i think in these circumstances when we cant go visit our venue!

                       

                      Also, im thinking about doing fireworks...has anyone on here tried them?? I think they might be fun but want to know if its worth the money?

                       

                      Also does anyone have a gazebo that they used and would recommend, I am going with #3 and was wondering if people were happy w that?
