Do I need to pre-pay hair/makeup?

Recommended Posts

Barbie (the WC) for Sandals keeps calling and asking for $$$$. The most recent being that I cannot pre-book my hair and makeup appt on my wedding day, unless I give her my credit card to charge now. Is this true? All these last minute expenses are adding up so this will be a crunch month. Will they really have nothing available if I wait until I get there to make an appt? She makes it seem like everything has to be done now.

I am getting married at a Sandals also, and it does say that in the wedding info., which I had also noticed. I don't know why that is! One thing I saw is if you add up all of the services in the bridal package, they are actually cheaper a la carte, but with the package, you get a trial.

I suggest pre booking as a way to ensure that you have the best time slot in relation to your wedding - the spa's at most of the Sandals /Beaches resorts have only one or two chairs for hair & make-up! Sooooo.......if someone else books that time ( could even be one of your wedding guests- I've had it happen!) then you could be offered a time slot that would be way earlier than what you would like ( say 11am for a 4pm wedding) !

 

Another advatage is the time saver- do you really want to spend a couple of hrs booking and confirming all of your wedding extras and appoinments ( and hoping that they can be accommodated) while you are on vacation? Personally I try to pre book as much as I can prior to going- I want to relax and have fun while away- not be stuck booking things! But that's just me!

There are lots of reviews on the forum where the brides had hair & make up done at the resort.

 

Definately bring pictures for the stylist to work from ( I'd encourage that whenever your working with a new stylist anywhere though!) !

I booked mine about 2 weeks before my wedding. I didn't do a trail run. I brought a picture and was very pleased with my style. I added makeup at the last minute. Just pay to get your hair done for that day. And if you need make up or a trail run schedule it when you get there. I agree Barbie can be very pushy.

I prepaid for mine yet when I got there I was did not have a scheduled time yet so I questioned why I was pushed to prepay. I really never got a direct answer but with the time worked out ok. The plus side is, I was married on a Sunday so the spa was not that busy. If you are getting married on a Saturday or whatever I would make sure they have you scheduled before you go just to make sure you have the time that works best for you.
