About AandD

  1. All- I am a little over two weeks away and I am so excited! I am seeing a lot of questions on here that I should be able to help answer. Photographer- Sascha Gluck- He has been absolutely amazing so far and his prices are great. DJ- I used J and S Audiovisual and they have been very easy to communicate with and they added some lights for free. Ceremony- I decided to have the wedding on the beach with the free package with some basic decorations. Cocktail Hour- This will be in the South Solarium for an hour, they do provide a list of appetizer options to pick from. Reception- North Solarium with table runners and matching napkins. I did hire a wedding coordinator separate from the hotel for my wedding reception so she helped my find flowers to decorate the vases that I am bringing with me. It is easy to get carried away with the decorations but you have to remember that you are by the beach and looking over the ocean so there is no reason to get carried away. I picked a mix of buffets and I am excited to see how it turns out. Room rates- I did sign a group contract and then my travel agent booked all of my guests through the contract. Travel agent- She is amazing and is always on top of things Margi Arnold Creative Travel Adventures 303-694-8786 888-568-4432 margi@creativetraveladventures.com http://www.creativetraveladventures.com 525 sq. ft.

  2. I found this great website to buy placecards holders for my destiantion wedding. I searched all day for cheap options and I finally found 50 for $20.00 with shipping! http://www.displays2go.com/Category.aspx?ID=24045
  3. I agree the new coordinator is of no help and I am a little scared of what it will be like when we get there in November.

Quick question I have been working with Gilberto at Playacar but now his e-mail was just returned. Has anyone else had this problem?

I can not decide on a photographer... so many choices. I was thinking of flying someone down from Denver because it is so much cheaper but I have not decided. I have setup the rooms for the group rates and I am just setting everything else up with the planner. The only problem I have had so far is that they will not really tell me how much a DJ is for the reception or my other options. Can I ask you what you are doing for music? Thanks

Tanya Marie - thanks for the idea of the using "Mexico" as the opening song on the site - I borrowed that from yours! Here's a peek - please feel free to use any info you find helpful! http://www.WeddingFiesta2010.com Stephanie- I just noticed that I will be getting married the day after you! I have been a little slow in my planning and I was wondering who you were using as a photographer?
