    Funny story about the Hilton

    i am very frustrate with the hilton's team, too. i signed my contract thinking that emeline was our wedding coordinator, when she left weeks later, i never thought the transition would be so difficult.....and that i'd have to go from emeline to mara to jaira.... what is the deal? it sounds like some of you had emeline act as your sales manager and wedding coordinator? is this true? what has been her role at the hilton? i thought she would be my wedding coordinator and have been disappointed with her replacements. any info would be great! please email at chicagopuja@gmail. or send me a private message. thanks, puja

    Hilton Los Cabos and hiring a Trio

    Hi Mia, I am getting married at the Hilton in May, and yes, I'm getting stressed, too--I feel your pain. I am am happy to trade our Hilton experiences off-list...i'm at chicagopuja@gmail.com.... But I have decided that I'm not using any of their vendors. What I've found is that the Hilton keeps telling me that this and that will be taken care of and that at my site visit they will go over everything....but i know the catch is if i wait til then: 1--all other vendors will be booked 2- if they don't help me now by email, they think i will wait til the site visit, and be left with no other choice than to go with their vendors and break the bank. why? b/c they assume i won't do my own homework. we have to be smart and go on our own. i found out today they had booked a dj for my wedding without telling me and without telling me the price. i don't know why they assume we have endless amount of money...they sent me cake photos with no prices? it is ridiculous. really frustrated, puja

    Cost of Vendors

    Hi everyone, First, I just want to send a GIANT thank you from Los Angeles for all your help...I have not posted much b/c I've been totally consumed by reading all your fantastic advice. I don't know what I would have done without this site. Thank you, thank you, thank you! As I have mentioned in my intro, I am doing a traditional East Indian wedding in Cabo. I am in the process of finalizing vendors and I would love some advice on rates. As many of us are, I'm trying to work on a budget. That is why I'm reaching out to you all now. If you don't mind and feel comfortable, could you please email me off list or through this thread, what should I expect to pay for the follow services for the wedding day? And perhaps include how this worked out hourly, as time equals money and most vendors are giving out rates based out how long they will be there. If you don't know the hourly rate, maybe a rought estimate of how long the vendor was there, ie--just the evening, or afternoon and evening, or 8 hours.... The vendor rates I'd like to compare with those of other brides are: Photography Videography DJ Flowers If you'd like to share any or all of these, please email off list at chicagopuja@gmail.com or reply to the thread. I really appreciate it and thank you for your time. Again, I'm trying to work on a budget, so if the sky was the limit for you, your reply would be appreciated but not helpful. If you were trying to stretch your dollar and get the best services at affordable rates, then I would love to hear from you. Thank you! Puja

    Spanish Guitar or Trio Mariachi

    I am very interested in having some live music at either our Rehearsal Dinner or Reception. If anyone has any suggestions, please post! Would love someone to play some Gypsy Kings and other flamenco-flavored music. Thanks!
