    Do we go to the spa to get our hair and make up done or do the stylists come to the room?

      From what I've seen and heard, you go to the spa. Not sure if they would be able to come to your room, but if that's what you want - ask about it, maybe they could work out something (at least for the makeup)...

          The arch and the white drapes are included if you the beach ceremony. If you want colored drapes, that is extra.

I think they have a way of saying things that isnt totally concrete or fully explained.. and then there are all these surprises as far as extra charges go. =(
          Just want you to know!! =)
          Hmm...now I am very torn on this. I keep going back and forth on where to have dinner. Obviously the option that would make the most sense financially would be to just have dinner at one of the restaurants (as previously mentioned) but I did want something that is at least semi-private. Paying $300+ on wine seems ridiculous to me but it is still much less than paying for a private dinner on the deck.

          Was anyone there last September that can tell me what the hotel was like as far as capacity? Was getting a reservation at the restaurants difficult? Are there any restaurants that have sections you can rope off or that would be somewhat private?

          I had no problem spending the money for the Dreams in Love package but with about 15 people, I feel like I should save that money and use if for the AHR where we are expecting 70+.

            From what I understand, you go to the SPA for your hair and Make-up. You actually have to make an Appointment...but like the other girl suggested ask them and see what they say! I am choosing not to use the SPA except for the messages, I actually gave my cousin, who is my TA, my hair and make-up appointment since they won’t let me substitute or exchange it for anything else. We booked the Master Suit and I have hired Fernando Fuentes and his hair stylist to come do our hair and make-up in the suit. I just didn’t want to be down at the salon, I would rather us be in the room drinking and getting ready together.

            As for the grooms room the night before…..it’s so hard to tell. I was there in October and there was lots of open rooms but it had just opened. My fianc© is going to his brother’s room the night before if need be and his brothers fianc© is going to spend the night with me. It will be fun no matter what……don’t stress over this. This is so small compared to the day

              Hey I contacted Fernando from makeup pros to do my hair and make up as well - what day are you using him? how have you found him so far?

                  Hi Ladies!
                  Sorry I've been MIA and not really contributing, between moving and my dad having emergency surgery things have been crazy! I'm also interested in the size of the tables, like rdsjcr.

                  Also - I'm wondering what some of you ladies are choosing for where to have your cocktail hour? My TA recommended the jacuzzi area and that's what I currently have "on hold" with Ana.

                  So now I'll try and start reading backwards and catching up on everything :)

                    Could you tell me what your Fiance's and Groomsmen are wearing to the wedding? Could you also tell me where you bought it? I am trying to find Linen Suits and I can't seem to find any.

                    Thanks,
                    Adrian

                      I am using him on Saturday November 13, 2010. I have found him to be good. He will email you back....I know he is REALLY REALLY BUSY and does tons of weddings. He was actually taking a little bit to get back to me at first so he called me on the phone, which i thought was great. I had to send a 50% deposit to him but he has an amazing reputation.
