    @tygrrlily. Cassie asked me to answer this one...

    can you tell me more about the "basic band" you booked? How much was it and what did it entail?

     

    When we arrived at the resort, we were planning to just use a playlist on our computer for both the cocktail hour and reception. We happened to see/hear the band when we attended the Chef's Dinner on Wednesday night and Cassie immediately knew she wanted them for our reception. I inquired with our on-site coordinator the next morning and she gave us further details.

     

    The group is "Basic Band" (such a horrible name for a band) and included 5 members. They have a huge playlist of popular songs (we saw their ~200 song playlist during the karaoke night on Thursday) It was ~$900USD/hour, which included 45 minutes of playing time and a 15 minute break. That said, I don't know if they took a break or not, since we were down taking pictures for most of the cocktail hour.

     

    We hadn't budgeted for a band at all, so it was quite a game-time splurge on our part. When we walked into the cocktail hour and they happened to be playing "Stand By Me" - one of Cassie's favorite childhood songs - we knew we made the right choice (plus, a lot of our guests commented on how great it was). It would have been amazing to have them for the entire reception...but at $4500 for the night, I would have had to get a 2nd job when we returned to the states!

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Chris

    @chrisandcassie - Thank both of you, Chris and Cassie. Super helpful. Really appreciate you coming here after your wedding to help the rest of us!
     

    The band sounds awesome. We wouldn't be able to afford them for the night either, but I"m going to run the idea by my fiance of maybe having them during the cocktail hour. We'll try to check them out too while at the resort

    Question regarding the beauty salon at beach palace,

     

    What have you or are you doing for make up and hair for family and friends? I have my own make up and hair stylist but need someone for immediate family. Are you guys using the beauty salon at BP or something else? I have at least 10-15 people that will need hair and make up done.. any suggestion?

     

    Thanks,

    Renal

    I'm getting mine done with Styling Trio. I was also sent pricing info for MVP. Both of these are Palace approved vendors so you won't have to pay for vendor fees or day passes.

     

    You can also get it done at the Palace salon and use up to $300 of your resort credits (if you're staying a week). I got sent what's titled the Le Blanc spa list, but I'm assuming the prices are the same

    Turned into a bit of a Bridezilla and fired off my first angry email today. Wedding is in 3 weeks, we'll be down there in 2. It's been almost 2 weeks since I've received my last "it'll be sent tomorrow" email from Marisol. We were supposed to have our wedding coordinator assigned week, never happened. I still have questions and concerns and want to make sure we have everything done and ready when the time comes. I don't want to be running around last minute going crazy. So frustrated.

     

    Besides that, I booked hair for my MOH and myself through Style Trio also. I was tempted to do the eyelash, airbrush makeup, and hair package but that was over $500. Interesting that it was that much when the same package is $300 for bridesmaids, etc. I thought about booking the hair with the salon, but we're going to be using our resort credit for mani/pedi/massages the day before. Hair only through Style Trio is $90, whereas through BP it's $100+. Plus I wasn't sure if I had to be in the salon, I'd prefer to just have someone come to my room and pretty me up.

     

    Does anyone have any idea how strict they are on only allowing 20% of guests be from other resorts?  In the past week I've had 4 people who never RSVP'd decide they're going, and they're staying offsite. We have 34 guests and 4 people are already staying offsite. I'm kind of to the point of washing my hands of the whole matter.

    Hi @tygrrlily,

     

    Thank you:) Would it be possible to send me the pdf's to my email? I can't open it here. My email is renal198@yahoo.com.

     

    are MVP and TRIO 2 different vendors?

     

    Thanks,

    Renal

    Sent it over!


    @NicoleLV - I'd totally be Bridezilla'ing too! Have you tried emailing her again? From what I've read here, the on site coordinators are great once you get to the resort, but they suck at emailing.

     

    Yeah, the pricing for Styling Trio is a lot, but I decided to go with it because I want to make sure I look as good as I can and my makeup lasts the whole day. I'm even getting the trial too. I just scheduled it for before our welcome party and the day we plan on going out, so i can at least "use" it for that - and I want to see how it holds up. Bridal makeup usually costs more than BMs because they spend a lot longer. I've gotten my make up done a lot as a bridesmaid, and they usually do an okay job and maybe do half an hour. For the bride, they always look flawless and usually they've spent over an hour on the bride

     

    I'm wondering abotu the strictness of the off resort visitors too. We've been trying to get everyone to book with our group, but it's definitely been a struggle. I can't imagine them turning people away there, esp. since you will be paying extra for it. Maybe if it becomes an issue, just ask one of your other guests to get a day pass for them instead of you (under their name)
