Did anyone use the salon at the resort? How was it? Worth it? Pricing? Wondering if I should book an appointment or just have a friend do my hair? Thanks

Hello,

I seem to be a week ahead of you in my planning:)  We sent a request and heard back in two days.  We decided on G.P. and sent in all of our information last Friday.  Wednesday I heard that our information was received and I would receive another email when it was processed.  I am hoping that we are confirmed soon.  I have been trying to take everyone's advise and not stress, but I am excited and anxious too:)  I hope this helps:)

Question for anyone...... When I give her the go ahead, my travel agent can only hold our rooms for two weeks at the price she quoted.  Our wedding isn't until June 7, 2012.  How did you let people know this far ahead?

hi!

how much is the beach BBQ running you? we decided not to go with a private reception, bc of the 45pp charge, we decided to have a cocktail reception following the ceremony with the steel drum band playing during that hour. our wedding coordinator told me that we couldn't have anything on the beach...

We are also doing a beach BBQ that night with our guests, but I believe ours is private....at least she hasn't mentioned otherwise....I should probably look into that!  haha! We are renting the resorts sounds system and microphone for 4 hours, so we will be having a reception on the beach that evening from 6 to 10.   We will do all toasts, speeches, and cake cutting that night. 

 

BeachBridein11, I have not visited that site, so that is great advice!  Thank you!  I can't wait to hear what you think after your big day...which is just around the corner!!  yay!!! 

 

What are you ladies doing for ceremony music?  I really like the idea of the steel drums, but it seems so pricey for a ceremony that will not last longer than 20 minutes. 

 

Also, who are you using for photography? 

 

Thanks, ladies!  Congrats to you both! 

 

Heather

Only hold for 2 weeks?!? You might want to find a new TA, you should be able to hold the rate for a lot longer. Is she referring to just the contract? You should be able to sent up a group contract that will hold the rate for a specific number of rooms up to about 2 months prior.

Question for anyone...... When I give her the go ahead, my travel agent can only hold our rooms for two weeks at the price she quoted.  Our wedding isn't until June 7, 2012.  How did you let people know this far ahead?

Hbond,

 

The beach BBQ is $55/ person, but there is no fee for the beach (I believe there is a fee for the other reception sites in addition to the per person fee).  I am not sure why they told you nothing on the beach...that is very odd.  We are also renting the sound system for the beach bbq, so we will actually have our reception on the beach from 6 pm to 10 pm.  However, one thing I have started worrying about that I did not consider when we decided on this.....what if it rains?!?!?!  For this reason, I decided to try and book a different form of reception, but all of the other areas are now booked.  Sooooo, we are stuck with it.  But, I would recommend you consider other options.  Hope this helps!

BeachBridein11,

Thank you for the advice, I will look into it.  We only need eight rooms, so we don't have a contract... but she said that if we get to the magic number of ten, then we do.  If we could hold the rooms for two months, I would be less stressed.

 

Your wedding looked amazing and is one of the reasons we selected G.P. :)

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
