    Hey girls, 

    I am brining in an outside vendor for hair and make up and I had no idea the fee was $300!! I thought it was around $60.......

    I am pretty sure it is $60 for someone to come to the resort for the day so why couldn't the outside vendor we are bringing(whether it be for make up or photography ect.) just say they are a guest of the wedding? 

    Thats what Ill try to do, I can't imagine paying another $300 on top of what I am paying for hair and makeup-maybe I should have looked into this more before I booked my MUA-lol

          Hey,

          congrats first of all. Were planning our wedding for April 4,13. I have asked around and its cheaper to fly out a photographer. Were in kitchener waterloo area and have a great photographer thats willing to do our photos for the week for the cost of his trip. If your interested. As well as far as DJ goes I think were using the hotel one for $300 (3hours)

            I just got the price list for DJ its $300 for 3hours. As far as photographer goes its a little more expensive I found to book with the one the resort suggested. I found a really good one from kitchener waterloo area if your interested in details.

              Hi brides 2013!!!!

              Were super excited that we booked with GP for April 4,2013

              Ceremony: 4pm beach

              Reception: 6pm Blue lagoon

               

              Now I have a few questions if anyone can answer them. First off I just contacted the WC, she told me I need to get our legal documents notarized? Has anyone else had to do this if so how do I go abouts to finding someone to do this? As for the reception does the resort offer anything as far as name tags? programs? any sort of decoration for center piece?

               

              I was able to find a photographer in town (kitchener waterloo) thats willing to do our photos and trash the dress for the cost of his flight and accommodation, how ever editing when we get back is extra. Hes willing to bunk with anyone which saves us. If anyone is interested.

               

              As for the DJ? I know its $300 (for 3hours) has anyone heard good or bad? And was thinking of steel drum band?

               

              I did book my hair already, debating if I should get make up done there or do it myself. But a 10% discount was applied to our deposit of 50% for hair.

               

              Anyone know what are the chances for room upgrade for bride and groom? The honeymoon suite with the out door shower looks amazing =)

                I was just at a wedding in Mexico few weeks ago, and the bride there told me to make sure to give extra time for hair. They may be a little slower there what we are used to. She had her hair apt for 12 and was out at 3 which made her rush for her 4pm ceremony. Hope that helps. The prices are CRAZY expensive

                    I got the quote from the hotel band and they told me that it was $300 per hour and a minimum of 3 hours.  I am not sure about the documents being notarized.  I have sent in a scanned copy of our driver license and birth certificates and I didn't get a response about anything else being needed.  I guess I should email the WC and check.

                     

                    If you hear about anything else being needed please let me know.

                      We also have to get our documents notarized...the first scans I sent through weren't accepted, and I still have to go get them notarized...I've been slack!!
