    Sending Deposits

    I sent our hotel a wire transfer to their bank in Miami... it made me feel better knowing it was in Miami. I just got all the necessary docuementation and I will say the one thing I insisted is in the "notes" section of the wire transfer I had Our names obviously, our event, the date, and the contact person responsible for our booking. I also sent our group rep a copy of the confirmation.. but, blacked out the routing and bank acct number. Just get all the necessary info.. and it should be okay.
  6. CONGRATS!!! I know that feeling... like a weight lifted off your sholders. Oh and love that AMEX! If anything (God Forbide) should happen with your booking, any refund etc.. you will be soooo protected!
  7. We got married at the main Church in Playa. BUT from what we understood it wasn't legal.. so this is the first time I'm hearing this. Our legal marriage took place in Vegas. Please keep us posted I would be curious to see if this is really true.
  8. HAHA. I love them. I have to share these with DH! Thank you!

I'm having a small procedure done Friday at 4pm. I don't know how its going to effect me.. doc said I should be fine with some aspirin. Soooo I really don't know how I'm going to feel. I just found out about it and Fri is the only day she could see me. She's pretty booked up. I really hate to say "Yes" and then cancel last minute because of it... but then again if I feel bad then I'm going to feel bad the next day. I'll try to make it on Friday. I may be alittle late depending upon the timeframe. So sure Friday is okay.
  14. Some of my guests went to Marketplace 5. I actually sent them there upon hearing it from one of the guests at our hotel who goes to Cancun for shopping often... she said its one of the best places for bargins. My MIL actually went and bought jewerly there but you need to bargin or bring someone with you who is a great barginer. Apparently there's a lot of stuff you can buy from clothes, jewerly, nick nacks etc.

In Chicago there is a street that is all wholesale jewelers... ironically it was located right by my school so either before class or after or on the weekends I would just go through each building and talk to the sales ppl or owners and get quotes... some were quite shady like I said and required that they keep my e-ring so they could measure it. I just basically did my own research on how much the diamonds would be (through B-Nile) and how much they we're offering me. The quotes ranged SIGNIFICANTLY to the point that I was so frustrated because I didn't know what was reasonable. Anyway, I just happened to stumble upon my current jeweler and he was extremely nice, and fair and his quotes were the lowest of the low while the quality was very nice. I would search online, maybe use google business search for your area. There must be a wholesale place you can go to... I know DH aunt has a winter home in AZ (fountian Hills) and she always buys jewelery. But sorry they are in Hawaii for 2 weeks so I can't ask. She came home once with what must be a 3 carat diamond (kinda bad quality and cloudy..ouch sorry but true). I don't know if Fountain Hills is too far away from you but when she get's back I will be happy to ask her.
