    I booked in December and I was also told $100 for an outside vendor in Jan 2010. I am going to email the wc again and I will let you know what they say.

      It is listed under policies and restrictions. My fee is $100 but I feel terrible for those of you who have to pay $300. What a large increase!!

        Or do you ladies know if the resort has other linens available besides white?
        I asked my wc about the flowers and she said I could bring my own. I did not ask about linens and lighting. Hope this helps a little.

          Thank you for the advice Candice!! That is a great idea, having a friend ordinated in your state to do it! There isn't too much involved for him to do that right? My FI's uncle can legally marry us, but I'm afraid other people would find out if we did it with him....

            Yay, i love the cakes too!! I wonder if we can decorate our cake that comes with the luxury package or replace the cake with cupcakes without an extra charge?

              Good idea! WOnder if different cake choice (other than the one from our package) is extra. Compiling a list of questions for the WC. I'm also thinking of getting an event coordinator to deal with all this for me. It's still far in advance, and I'm already starting to get stressed over these details, and waiting for info.

                For those asking about the outside vendor fee, I was told that if you signed your contract before December 8, then you have a $100 fee, otherwise it went to either $300 or $350...not sure which one. It says on your contract that you signed.

                  I talked to my shipping coordinator here at work and she said she sends packages to Mexico a lot through work. She said that if you fill out the correct paperwork for customs and detail how much everything in the box is worth then you shouldn't have any problems. I have lik 40lbs in towels here that I just can not bring in a suitcase, so I have no choice. I also want to ship my centerpieces since they are glass and fragile. I'm going to do it anyway and hope for the best. They did say to send everything a month early as long as you contact the wedding coordinator and they know it is coming.
                  I'm in love with these escort cards.

                  Do you think I'll have a problem bringing them through customs considering the comment above about shells? Would you be worried about it or go for it?

                    The main issue is with the Michigan WCs. If you start asking questions early then you shouldn't need an event coordinator. I am almost done with everything and I don't need an outside coordinator. I think it's a waste of money, IMO. I started my planning in advance so that helped.

                      I think it is a hit and miss. I've read some brides were able to bring them in Mexico, regardless. If you want to try and risk it then go for it but have a backup plan. I wanted to bring in shells for decorations but decided not to.
