Our travel agent requested it for us. For example, she knew my two brothers were sharing a room so put on there to make sure they had 2 beds, not one ect. I would think you want to do this before you arrive, especially since you will be there in April which is peak season. I don't know what tour company you are going through, but we all ended up with side by side rooms except for myself and husband (we were two floors up from everyone else, but still in the same area). I suppose you could take your chances when you get there that you will be able to switch, but I don't know if it will be possible as they are usually full capacity. If you are using a travel agent mention it to them and they should be able to request specific room configurations.
Yes, they don't accept cash for tips either. We had to add our tips on to our bill and it was charged to our room. It was sort of like getting a restaurant bill, and you can write in the amount you want to tip on the bill, and its charged to your room, and you pay at checkout. I believe the hair trial is included for free so you wouldn't get a bill that day so I would assume you just tip once when you get your hair/makeup done for the wedding.

Thanks for the heads up regarding tips...I'm always unsure and end up tipping far too much! So when you say the salon dont accept cash, does this include tips then? and instead they ask you if you want to leave a tip and you say yes and tell them how much, say $20 and they add to your room bill or do they just automatically charge you a tip? I'm having a hair and make-up trial the day before my wedding so do you think I should tip both days or i'll be able to get away with just tipping on the day of my wedding?
