    Hey ladies, 

    We are laving in less then 2 weeks to be married and we just got our cost synopsis back. For those of you that hav already gotten married and used the steel drum band, was it worth it? We are trying to cut our cost down a bit and are contemplating having them or not.......did they play for the full hr? Did your guest enjoy them?

      Did anyone bring there own IPOD and dock?  I was wondering if we need to have all the music on the IPOD before we get there or do there supply the IPOD and music.  I guess I am a little confused!  Also, we got married already here but nobody really knows.  I am sure a lot of people do this but is the ceremony the same where nobody can tell it isn't actually legal?  I have 40 days until we leave!  So excited!

        Does anyone have anything good to say about the spa? I have myself, plus 4 bridesmaids and parents who will want to get there hair and makeup done......I really dont want anyone hating how they look.

          Hey

          Hey! Congrats on the upcoming wedding :) I'm curious - where did you get your flowers in TO? I would love to do the same thing but sure where to go - would you recommend your place? Thanks so much! Cait I'm getting married at GP.JA next year and I was able to get great pricing... $1536 per person, all in for a week - based on double occupancy. Date: May 6, 2013 Time: 4pm Location: Attrium, I think ! Package: Pure Paradise Reception: 6pm - Private reception at the Blue Lagoon So far it's been a breeze. Deposit is in. Picked our restaurant out. Our colours. Our flowers will be done in Toronto and flown over (fake flowers are much cheaper than the resorts silly fresh flower fees). I have many ideas for welcome baskets. Just picking my photographer now. Going to work on a DJ next.... Heard the resort has a good hairstylist and I may do my own makeup. Not sure yet! Would love some ideas for a photographer or a DJ if anyone has them !!

              Hi Tanya,

               

              If you look back at past posts, there were a few brides that had there make-up/hair done by the spa and hated it. Others recommend Rashel Edwards, that's who I booked. There are a couple other people if you read through the threads that are recommended. Good Luck!

                  How much does it cost for vendor fees to bring in an outsider hair and makeup???

                    I had Rashel come to do my make up and I paid $80 to get her and her hair stylist onto the resort for a total of $160.

                      Hey ladies, 

                      My husband and I left a review for you all to read in the reviews section. Don't let it scare you away however.......we just wanted to warn you. I am sure you will all be happy with your wedding and to me that is the main thing.
