@emmycita who are you using for hair and makeup? and are they charging you an outside vendor fee for that or possibly a visitor fee? thanks!

    I read good things about the in house DJ so I will be using him. He has been very responsive and has a detailed form we can fill out so he will help us MC the wedding as well.

     

    The Spa was definitely strict about their suite so I will opt to get ready in my room with my BMs/Family too - hopefully it isn't too far of a walk from the spa since everyone is getting their hair done.

     

    @emmycita - What time are your events starting? Would you be willing to share what your photographer recommended? We are getting married at the Stone gazebo at 5:30 and plan to do formal pictures at around 3pm.

      I used the spa for the day of makeup and hair. No issues and it fits 4 at a time because they only have 4 chairs to do them. Think ably getting your hair and make up in the room. You will not have any idea if it will get cleaned in time. You have zero control over this. As well as a groom room is not a definite and we didn't know till 6pm the night before if we had the extra room. After the spa we all went to my room to get dressed.

      The house DJ was great we used him. No issues at all. We gave him a specific list of music we wanted to play

        @mexiwedding I've been communicating with Yanin and she seems more responsive than Luzdary or any of the others.

        I'm using the spa for hair but not my makeup even though it's included with the Gold Package cause I'm really particular about my makeup. For my hair I booked a trial run two days before the big day.

          I had Ludzary as my coordinator. No issues. It takes about a week for them to answer a response.

          My friend used the in house photographer for engagement photos and they were really good. I flew my ow photographer for the pricing it paid to have him 3 days and do my photos.

            @mexiwedding can you send me the in house dj's info. I never got a firm or anything from him and I haven't addressed that part at all yet other than actually booking him and confirming it with Yanin. Lol

            Thanks for all the awesome suggestions @SusanMarie813 you've been sooooooo helpful!!!!

                So happy to hear the in house photographer was good! We're just going with them with what comes with our gold package and if we need to for some reason we can stage extra photos when we get back
