Hi all --
I'm getting married at the RIU Varadero on March 21, 2012, and have run into a slight issue when it comes to hair/makeup for myself and my wedding party on the day of the wedding.
From what I've heard from other RIU brides, the resort has very, very limited salon resources, and I've been recommended by a number of different people not to use the RIU hairdresser. Since I have a large wedding party looking to get at least their hair done (including bmaids, a junior bridesmaid and a groom's attendant) I'm a little concerned about all of us just trying to do our own/each others.
With that in mind, I'm now looking into potentially travelling to another, nearby resort the morning of the wedding -- our ceremony isn't until 4 p.m. -- buying day passes and having our hair and makeup done there.
So I'm soliciting suggestions for any Varadero resorts -- preferably as close to the RIU as possible -- that have good beauty services? As mentioned, it's more the hair that's the issue -- I think we should be able to handle our makeup on our own.
Thanks so much in advance for any ideas you might have!
