    Hi there! I was wondering if anyone knows of any hairdresser willing to travel to the resort (Iberostar Lindo) to do the bride+bridesmaids hair?

    Our resort charges about $140 pp which i think is way too much!!!!

    thanks :)

      There are, check the Riviera Maya - RM/Cancun Vendors and there are a few recommendations but they are pretty expensive as well. I know one of them are $330 just for the bride but that is hair and make up and I think another $80 or so for your bridesmaid. Something else to keep in mind is an outside vendor fee if your resort charges one.

        I hired Doranna for our wedding in December 2009 and would highly recommend her. Her prices are on the higher end but definitely worth it.

            It would not hurt to ask if she would offer any type of discount with a bigger group.

                Ive been trying to weigh the benifits of an outside vendor vs the hotel vendor myself. Honestly its possible not to like the end result of either just because you don't know them and their might be some comunication bariers.

                If I did an outside person. I would defently want them to do both hair and makeup. I also have a very specific look I want. I guess I could give the people at the resort a picture just as easly as i could an outside person...hard call. I look forward to seeing other referals.

                    Hello , AI hotels usually dont allow external people to their hotel ( well , you have to pay a day pass for them!) because they forced you to buy every single service in the hotel...AI policy..Good luck!

                      Micas,

                      That is definitely not true about all AI hotels. I asked all of the AI hotels that I seriously looked at about their policies for this, and the majority of them would allow a hairdresser/makeup artist to come for the day free of charge. The resort I chose also allows us to choose any photographer that we want without a day pass fee. I have seen from your posts that you are very against AI resorts, as your business is to work with non-AI resorts, but I don't think that you should be giving out misinformation about them.
