Hi Everyone! I booked the Styling Trio for my wedding next year.  Would they be considered an outside vendor? Even though they aren't really part of the wedding (ie: photographer, DJ, etc)? I'm worried the Riu will charge me $350 to have them come do my hair...that's a little ridiculous and I don't want to get my hair done at the spa there...

Everyone I've talked to, including my resort (I just had them a week ago) considers them an outside vendor. If you take business away from the resort (in this case-the hotel spa/salon) you'll most likely get charged the fee. You can try negotiating with your wedding planner!

They are considered an outside vendor and then you usually have to pay for day passes for each person on top of that. I am also using Styling Trio and we're next door to the Riu at Iberostar and we are going to their salon since they are close. I believe she said like 7 minutes away. You might want to consider that if you are comfortable. They are pretty strict with outside vendors since you are taking money away from the resort.

    yes they are an outside vendor and will charge you the outside vendor fee, Adrian told me he are hiring a place close so people can go out, get things done in their salon and get back to their hotels, check with him that option


    By the way 350US for an outside vendor is a deal, Karisma and Iberostar charges 1,000us!!!

    $1000?!?!?! Omg...I thought $350 was bad...I will email them and see if there is a place I can go to get my hair done, instead of them coming on to the resort, as I REALLY want them to do my hair and makeup for the wedding.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Riu told me it's $250. I gave it some thought and the money is worth it to me. This isn't a Christmas party or birthday party. It's my WEDDING so I'm going to splurge. :D

      If there is ever a reason to splurge, it is your wedding  ;)

      I'm booked with Styling Trio too, and yes they are absolutely an outside vendor. Azul Fives charges $800 for each one, then I've heard you also have to pay for a day pass.

       

      I"m going into their salon too. Just much easier.


      I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        I am getting married at Riu palace peninsula, right beside caribe. I am thinking I might try out their salon earlier in the week for a trial run. If I don't like it, I guess I'll do my OWN hair and makeup. The guests who I've invited and I thought would help me......I don't think they are coming to the wedding. But I'm not going to bring in an outside vendor.
