        Quick question for all Riviera Maya or EDR Brides on here,
        How exactly do you go about booking things such as spa treatments, hair & make-up appointments, massages, and your honeymoon activites/excursions..etc? My FI & I are with honeymoonwishes.com and we're trying to post our gift wishes on the website for guests to purchase for us. But we're having some trouble deciding where to look. Would it be Lomas Travel? If so, I noticed they don't offer many options. FI & I would love to go horseback riding and maybe go snorkeling too, but I didn't see these options on Lomas. Is there another group of professionals that I can work with? How did you make your arrangements? And did you book ahead of time or while there?

            Many questions?
            Wasn't there an EDR bride that had a stylist from Playa come to the resort and do her hair, if so could someone pass on her info and does the stylist do makeup as well?

            Also, I am having my ceremony at the Presidential Gazebo and the cocktail and private dinner at the health bar, we will have an hour gap between pics and the cocktail reception, so I am looking for some place to send the guests to grab a drink. Is there something that is centrally located between these 2 locations?

            Thank you,
            Jennifer

              I think it was MrsV-to-be that brought in a stylist.

              In-between the Presidential gazebo and the health bar is Jo-Jo's, which has a bar. All 3 places are right along the same sidewalk next to the beach.

                We booked our spa treatments through Valeria- our WC. A few of our friends (I didnt know until we got there!) just went through EDR directly and bought us like $25/$50/$75 credits toward our room/stay there. They told us about it when we checked in. Those credits would pay for all spa treatments, jet ski rentals, romantic breakfast in bed, private candlelight dinner on the beach-- things like that, that are on the resort, but not included in the AI plan.

                I know some of my guests used this company-- for tours, excursions and even shuttle to and from airport-- they were really pleased with them....

                  Your slide show is beautiful Shannon. I still have to choose our photos and send that in to them. Did you get your photo album or any other extra photos? If so were you happy with everything?

                    Shannon, that was so nice of your family & friends to purchase credit gifts for you guys. I hope we get that lucky :). Your info regarding the company used for excursions sounds good. I'll def. consider them. Thank you.

                      We did Honeymoon Wishes - Honeymoon Registry where your wedding gift is a Romantic Honeymoon for ours. It gave upgrades, spa treatments and excursions. The best part about it you just get a check for the items or amount purchased and use where you want to. You can just register for dollar amounts for your registery or wedding gifts. It is helpful to have to put towards any of those things. I had my TA book my hair appointments and my massage. The WC will but you have to pay when you pay your bill 30 days prior when doing that. We had resort credits and cash from the gifts purchased from honeymoonwishes.com so we just paid at check out.
                      for ours
