@Kerrierf for the private beach bash, are drinks included? I know it includes the private bar and bartender, so i would ASSUME that they are included, but just want to make sure since it does not explicitly say. Also, did you pay the $16US/person for open bar during your dinner?

@Jc14 Yes, $135.00 for both hair and makeup.  Carolina said that you have to book through the wedding department though.  I have to get back in touch with her because I read on the Spa website that if you book before your trip, you get 15% off, so I am not sure if you are able to apply that to the $135.00 price.

Hi all, for those who used/are using an outside vendor and have booked a room for them instead of paying the vendor fee, do you have to include the vendor in your guest list and seating chart for dinner?

@Jc14

 

The only outside vendor that I am using is my photographer and she is traveling down with me as  a guest...she is on the guest list and will be in the seating chart...but I'm pretty sure you do that with most photographers anyways.

 

If you are referring to a Make-up artist or Hair stylist once you have booked them a room they are then a guest of the Resort and I would assume are free to come and go as they please as the rest of the guests are. I would then assume that you would not need to have them listed as a guest or have them at your wedding unless you wanted to.

 

But you may want to ask anyways.

Hows the planning going ? Everyone's been quiet lately

    Hi Everyone! I'm so excited I found this forum and topic! I was hoping someone could give me suggestions on what make up artist and hair stylist they used/recommend. I'm also thinking of giving our guests a welcome gift. I just received the options from the resort but they did not have prices. They don't look very nice, just wondering if anyone has any opinions on this.

     

    Thanks!!

    @dreia85 welcome! I'm glad to see there is another GP Punta Cana Bride out there!

    I'm going to be doing my own Make-up... Only because I don't normally wear make up and when I've had it done before it was too much for me. Also my bridesmaid is a hair dresser so she is doing my hair. I have heard that the hair and make up team at Zentopia are really good... Perhaps @Kerrierf can give you a first hand. Keep in mind that if you hire an outside vendor for hair or makeup you have to pay a hefty vendor fee...but a way to get around that is to book them a room for the night.

    As for welcome gift... I had no idea that our resort offered welcome gifts... Would you mind Sharing the document? I'm doing a welcome bag for my guests...if you scroll up I have listed what I have inside so far.

    I'm getting married in November so perhaps I can have some better suggestions when I get back!

      @Meandhim

       

      Send me your email and I will send you the document they sent me with the welcome gifts. Also, I was told they could reserve a table at one of the restaurants if you would like for everyone to have dinner together other than the wedding day,

      @dreia85 Could you also send me the documents for the welcome gifts?  I am almost positive i will be making welcome bags but I am curious what the resort has to offer.  

       

      As for reserving a table at one of the restaurants, did they happen to tell you a guest limit?  I would love to have everyone eat at the hibachi together one night but I did not logistically think it could happen.  

       

      I will be getting my hair and makeup done at the spa there.  Luckily, as part of the wedding package, I get a trial which will help ease a lot of my nerves.  I am getting so excited and everything is starting to feel so real!  Only a few more months.

       

      I hope everyone else's planning is going well!

      @Beachgirl622

      I didn't realize that a hair trial was part of any of the packages! What package did you pick??

      @dreia85

      I'm curious about the restaurant reservation too...
