Does anyone happen to know how many hair stylist are at the hair salon? I was hoping I would be able to get my hair done at the same time as my mom and my little girl love.gif

 

Thanks,

Would you recommend getting my hair and make-up done at the spa?

 

Thank you,

I loved my hair and make up! I had Perla do both of mine and I loved it!! All my bridesmaids and both of our moms got theirs done too and everyone was happy!

It really depends on what time your reception is. The music doesn't start until after 10. Our got over about 9:30 and it was Monday night football so they had the football game on instead of music.

One option to keep in mind is that you can rent the sound system and play your own music during the first hour of the reception to save a bit on the cost of the DJ.  We did this because I figured we didn't really need a DJ while we were eating dinner, and it worked out quite well.  Our dinner actually ran quite long - closer to 2 hours - so in the end I was kind of annoyed that we had payed for 3 hours of DJing, when we could have easily played our own music for the full dinner time (2 hours) and had the DJ for 2 hours of dancing.  We had a seated (non-buffet) dinner on the beach, and I'm not sure if that's why ours ran so long, but I did find it awfully slow.  Especially since I had stressed to Lorena in our meeting that I wanted dinner to move as fast as possible, and she said it wouldn't be a problem to do it in an hour.    

 

Desires is very hit or miss depending on the night.  On our wedding night everyone ended up going there afterwards, and there were two other weddings on that same day, so it was quite busy with lots of people drinking and dancing.  But other nights during that week we went in and there was hardly anyone there.  If a group of people from your wedding all decide to go together after the reception, you can kind of make your own party and it should be a good time!
