Yay! Your big day is coming up so quickly!! I agree with you that you don't need the extra appies, we had 80 people and I think I got enough for 50. I will say that by the time we got to the cocktail hour it was pretty slim pickings for what was left! But all if my guests said they were delicious! I would say to get your photographer to swing by the cocktail hour to take a few photos of the appies and drinks though as the presentation was pretty nice. And that's basically the only way I saw what there was!

I am certain I was charged a set up fee of about the same amount but that included putting the chair bows on both at the ceremony and then moving them to the reception, and setting up everything in the reception including hanging paper balls from the ceiling. I had Ariadna as my coordinator though and she seems to be a lot easier to deal with than pilar!

I know we were stressing about costs adding up, but in the end, paying someone to have it done right was totally worth it!!

 

@candle23 It's coming SO quickly!! Time has really flown, I feel like I JUST found this site and was getting started planning and that was over a year ago!!

 

Based on what you said, maybe I'll bump it up to 15 extra servings, or even 20...I certainly don't want to be stingy and leave guests hungry, I just know paying for a serving for each and every person wouldn't be necessary.

 

Maybe you could shed some light on the setup costs...on my contract, I have a $46.40 charge labeled "SET UP FEE BOWS FROM THE CEREMONY TO THE RECEPTION" which is sounds like is the charge you had, in addition to another $46.40 for "SET UP FEE (DECORATION AT CEREMONY : SEAHELL AT THE CANOPY)." Am I crazy, or does the second charge sound like it's just for one decoration?

Can anyone tell me how much it cost to get your hair done at the resort? My bridesmaids are asking and I have asked Pilar 3 different times and she NEVER answers me! 

 

Also, I'm working on my timeline for the day and I am so lost lol! Does anyone want to share theirs by any chance? :)

I was just there in April.  Hair was $79 and make-up $69.  If you send me your email I can forward you the price list that someone at the spa sent me.  I can also send you my timeline.  Honestly - my photographer saved me on that one - she gave me sample timeline that really helped.

In making your timeline, I strongly suggest you talk to the spa, your photographer, and your wedding coordinator - that's basically how ours was set. The spa will ask you your ceremony time and how many people you will have getting ready with you in order set your appointment time (spa1.nojrc@nowresorts.com). They have one bridal suite and have to divide the time based on the number of weddings they have for the day (at least that's how it worked for me).

 

After I had that information I talked to my photographers and they told me the amount of time it took to get all the pictures I wanted (getting ready for both the bride and groom, first look, ceremony, reception first look, etc) . We figured out the best way to make everything work and basically set up the timeline from there. After making the timeline, I talked with my wedding coordinator to make sure the ceremony and reception sites would be set up in time for the photographers to take pictures. It took a little back and forth and pumping the spa time a little but thats how mine was set.

 

As for the spa price list and setting a time for your appointments, I suggest you talk directly with them. Just email them and they'll get back to you.

This is what I was charged. I was able to haggle some things at the meeting with the coordinator though. They didn't remove the the set up fee for moving the bows, but I was able to get them to include programs, a crystal bead curtain, and a flowers on each chair for the same $47 ceremony set up price.

We had the resort photographer take pictures at our rehearsal dinner.  We got to see the pictures and pick out our images and book while we were still there.  At first I was thinking I should have just stuck with them, because I was seeing it all while I was there.  Then I got the photos back from our outside photographer.  The difference is amazing!  It was so worth the extra money!  

 

I'm attempting to attach one of the pictures from our rehearsal from the resort photographer.

Beautiful pictures @tracyannhoward!! I so cant wait!!!! I always said that a photographer is where I am going to spend most of my money when it comes to my wedding, cause I will have those to look back on. My fiancé's cousin is just starting up photography and she said she would do our pictures. But part of me is a little nervous.... and now she is pregnant and doesn't now if she can make the wedding, as she is due the month before we go. So now I am not sure what I am going to do.

 

 

Was the cost fairly decent priced?
