    I received my makeup & hair done at the spa. It was terrible my hair fell out before I even wed. I had extensions in my hair they did my updo wrong and completely knotted my hair! I recommend Rashel Edwards as well.! Ive seen her work she is amazing!!

      Canadiangurl,

       

      Was it $80 per vendor to come unto the resort?

        Sorry, I phrased that wrong. I meant did you have to pay $80 per each vendor meaning if you have a DJ, Rashel, etc. They can't work out a deal? If you aren't sure, how about other brides who also dealt with this.

          Yes, you have to pay $80 per vendor so if you have rashel and her assistant plus a DJ you would be paying $240. There is no way around this; I was thinking our vendors could just walk onto the resort but they get stopped at the front by security. We asked our wedding coordinator if she could do better on the price and she wouldn't budge. With that added cost hair and make up was very expensive! I did like my hair but I felt for me my make up was too much, Rashel did a great job and my make up was flawless all night but since I don't wear alot of make up I didn't really feel like me......

                Thanks for the information. I realized there was a vendor fee, but I didn't realize it was per person. This is going to be very expensive especially when you think about the photographer, DJ, and Rashel and her assistant. That is $320 dollars. I don't wear make-up at all unless i'm doing something special (maybe once a month, if that) so I was worried about that.

                  For those of you who have stayed in the GPLH Villa Suites, is there another shower inside the room? Just curious if the outdoor shower is the only one for each room.  Thanks!

                    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? 

                    I didn't think the steel band was worth the $. We had a DJ & the fire show ,limbo & bamboo dancers and were quite impressed with those services. WORTH EVERY PENNY! But the steel band wasn't. You can choose your own music so why not do that. Through your ipod.!!!
