    I had my hair & makeup done by the resort (did not outsource) and they actually had a lady come in just for me, so it's not even someone that works there everyday, she works at a few resorts. She did an INCREDIBLE job. I was very impressed and relieved. We did the hair trial a few days beforehand  - I brought pictures, explained what my concerns were, and she was very professional and the result was just perfect (I have long wavy hair, so you gotta know what you're doing with it!). Unfortunately, I don't remember her name, but they can probably look it up at the Spa or if you ask Lily (the WC) - my wedding was on November 23rd.

I'll be writing a more detailed post later on, but any upcoming brides, feel free to ask me specific questions!!!

          Cant wait for the pictures too!!

            I agree this is an amazing, idea. Definitely would cut down the cost.

                  Yes i am!! Who is your WC? So many questions for you..

                  How did you pick your venue? Did they give you a detailed program?

                  What ceremony are you doing? 

                  How many guests are you taking?

                    Hi Scarma,

                     

                    We are getting married on the beach and our reception will be at the Italian Restaraunt.  We originally wanted the outside courtyard area in the shopping center area but we have too many people, so we chose this.  We chose this because we could either choose a menu item for everyone or give choices, we wanted to give meal choices and they had the best.  I've requested more details and I haven't really gotten what I need so I just continue to email.  I did receive my timeline for the day which was most important to me.  My WC is Lily.  We are getting married at home first so we chose the symbolic ceremony with the dreams package.  We wanted to do everything (including the reception) there.  We have 50 traveling with us and 5 that are still unsure.  We just hired DJ Doremixx.  I just received the final paperwork from Lily- I see your wedding is in November so I attached some things to expect that I wish I would have known receiving this (though I'm not sure what kind of ceremony you're having so this may not be necessary for you).  This is the information that I need to fill out for the final details.  Hope this helps.
