  1. I used Ivan Luckie- paid for a room for him and his assistant (wife). I basically told them that if I wasnt allowed the outside photographer, i would go elsewhere.
  2. Sorry-- meant to include Nene's remark about the $500 for offsite photographer.
  3. You can buy a room for your photographer-- that is what i did. That was about 250 or something.
  4. Try flyboys naturals-- they are freeze dried.. .i used them and they worked nicely...just cannot buy them too far in advance--maybe order them about 1 1/2 to 2 mos out.
  5. For what its worth, i had an outside hair and makeup girl -- Melissa Parry w/ MVP (one person and she did both hair and makeup) and I just paid a guest pass fee for her, not the $500.00. They dont pay attention to who is coming in and out, just meet her @ the lobby and pay for a guest pass for her. if you have more than 1-2 people getting hair and makeup done then you might need her to bring another helper, but i think she could easily handle 1-2 people within 3-4 hours. She did a very nice job with makeup and hair-- got tons of compliments. I really didnt want to go w/ the people there and I'
  6. Its all so loosey goosey what they tell people they will charge. I think I paid a small set up fee, but definitely not $200 per table. I got married last July. Plus, the WC didnt even set up everything the way i wanted it, so i dont see how they could justify the $200 fee. Just have a trusted friend go out and set up the tables the way you want. What exactly are you trying to get set up? I think stringing lights in the air, etc. may be more justified to charge you, but just arranging runners, chair sashes, etc, that isnt worth 200 per table.

  8. Hi everyone-- we just got back and yes, the Palenque terrace is actually beautiful and I liked it MUCH better than the Sky Terrace, even for my small group b/c it was the only private area option-- all the other areas have people milling in and out. I was dealing with Mario originally, but he was replaced by Suzete b/c he was promoted. I do wish she would have answered my questions more directly b/c I am a detail person. When I asked if she had any other weddings the same day as mine, she said no, but didnt mention she also had a huge private event with close to 80+ people at the same time--
  9. So this is what my WC is telling me re: the displacement fee... That Is correct, if you will use your own DJ you will pay $88.00 USD per person, however I’m talking about the displacement fee that covers the use of electrical power, table set up and linens for the table. The $88.00 USD that Mario comment you is only for people (outside vendors) As you mention before you are a frequent visitor of www.bestdestinationweddings.com Below please find the proved that we charge $250.00 USD per Audiovisual equipment, plus $88.00 USD per person.

  11. They havent actually told me what the amount of the displacement fee is-- she just mentioned it and I told her that my prior WC had said I could waive the fee.... she asked for that email and I sent it to her, but havent heard back... I'll definitely let you know, but I am thinking its the vendor fee which I think is $300, right?
  12. I am going through this right now--- getting married this week and the prior WC I had told me -- or at least this is what I interpreted it to mean-- that the fee could be waived but I would need to pay guest pass fee for the DJ-- so @ this point-- days away, they are trying to stick this "displacement fee" on me and I am getting super frustrated with them. Those of you who have had the vendor fee waived- who agreed to that for you?
  13. Hi Liz-- After I sent the current WC the document the prior one had sent with the harpist fee, she agreed to lower it back to the original fee. I do have the original email that the first WC sent me where I had asked them to waive the outside vendor fee he said that the resorts usually dont allow outside DJs but if he comes with me then I will need to pay the guest pass fees and will have them there "at my own risk"... so in so much broken English I interpret this to mean-- I can waive it but you have him perform @ your own risk and have to pay guest pass fees for him and anyone who comes wi
  14. Cancun911-- I also had Lauren as a planner and she was incredibly horrible about replying. She in fact did not reply to me for more than a month and I had to email Yesenia and ask her to have Lauren reply to me. I wish I could say that once my wedding got closer I have a had a better experience-- however, lately they have been really annoying me! I get married next week and they did not think to explain that this whole time they have been recommending the Sky Terrace for my reception and telling me that its the better place to have it for my group size that it has been BOOKED for all but
