    Hi girls ... I'm still not sure whether or not I want to do an on-site spa party with Suzanne. I'm really just wanting it to be my 3 closest girlfriends --- so I've been thinking that it might be more fun for us to "get away". I'm a little afraid if I have a spa-party at the hotel, I'll be obligated to include my mom, FMIL, etc ... since they'll be around. That completely changes the feel (and the conversation)! My WC loves Senza ... but that adds on travel time from San Jose. I just heard about this spa - has anyone ever been?

    Here's the website: http://www.hivespa.com/

      yes, I got my hair and makeup done there. Honestly, I had a bad experience, but I think it might have been a fluke. It's a really nice place and other girls have been happy there. It's REALLY $$$$. I just had a problem because the owner was scheduled to do my hair and mysteriously she was not there (she was not IN THE COUNTRY EVEN) "due to a death in the family" even though I had confirmed like 10 times AND paid ahead (incl gratuity!!). I felt lied to, but what am I going to do when I am getting married in 2 hours and my hair is not done!

      corey, do a search for karlav - i know she mentioned in her westin wedding review that she used hive and had a great experience. although from the prices she said she paid, they are definitely expensive, but she also had the stylist come to her room the day of. actually... i have her review saved in my email, ill just forward it to you!

        Janet - How frustrating! You poor thing - I would have been really upset as well. You're right - you really have no options when you're in that situation --- which makes you want to strangle someone! I appreciate you responding!!

        Thanks Maura for sending me KarlaV's review!

        I looked at the prices online --- I guess since they are less than what they are here in Dallas, they didn't seem that bad ... The website just looked pretty cool! I'm going to keep mulling it over!
