LeShay - what is Swank?

I'd really like a DJ, but yeah that's pricey, so we may end up with the sound system and an iPod.

I'm trying to talk FI into a wedding website, but he's a little uptight about it. I've made the 7-day freebie and just have to get him to look at it. I'm sure he'll love it, plus the fact that I've already got most of it up. Cross your fingers for me!!

    Still find it weird that we haven't yet had to sign a contract - except the initial form I sent back to Perla with our deposit - I am sure sure that the wedding coordinator and the reservations dept talk cause Perla told me no discounts on the food!

    SWANK is the DJ company that PAradisus uses - its $1250 for the DJ and all equipment!

    Our wedding website is Our Wedding Website. Feel free to check it out!

    Melissa - I love your website!!! I love that version of Over the Rainbow! And I hope you'll forgive me, but I plagarized pretty much your entire "paradisus" page onto mine.

    Your dog is about the cutest thing EVER!

    Right, back to the topic at hand...

    Is the meal that you are having included (more or less) in the package? Because I'm thinking that my contract is more about the fact that we're pretty much customizing our event food-and-beverage-wise. So maybe they don't think you need a contract. (That and the fact that we are booking L'Hermitage for our dinner event and that was a whole big to-do.) But call and ask...

      Thanks Becks! And don't feel bad about plagarizing - COPY AWAY! That's what it's there for!

      In terms of package - we haven't really decided either way - we just paid $500 and Perla said we could decide after what package we wanted - We are probably just going to use wish and then go from there - may I should send her everything we want and get a price..

        hey ladies...does anyone have a pic of Capri restuarant? I didn't take any while I was there and LeShay needs a memory jog

          Good Morning-
          I sent Perla an email the other day asking about a contract waiting to hear back I will let you know what she says.
          On another note both of your wedding websites are so fun. I have to admit I plagarized mine when I created it (Im not very good with words) thank god for the copy paste function hehehe. Before I put ours up I googled other wedding websites to see what I found helpful and fun and added that. I hope your FI changes his mine Im sure he will its a great place for your guests to get answers and updates.

            i just totally freaked out about our wedding plans...i was just searching around for wedding favors and decorations and whatnot and came across a great review for Azul and frantically wondered if we picked the right resort & spent 15 minutes looking back through all my stuff to figure out why I didn't consider Azul in the first place. turns out, they can't accommodate a wedding as big as mine. valid reason, have now calmed down.

            but am wondering - does anyone else freak out unexpectedly? i think it would make me feel better if i'm not the only one...

              I freak out at least once a week - FI is sick and tired of telling me to stop second guessing our options - Just last week I flipped saying that we should have looked at Dreams Tulum but we didn't even consider it because our TA had some negative things to say about it!

              So don't worry - I think we are all feeling that way!

              I'm still in the every-other-day freak out mode. And I think it's normal.

              If you think about it, none of us are in control because we aren't on site, can't double check everything, and are reliant on Perla and Elisa who don't realize that we want a response approximately 1.3 seconds after we hit a send button.

              So, yes, I'm totally prone to the panic, but I recognize it for what it is.

                Last night I was flipping out - standard stuff - because I was complaining to FI about the food choices - I know Becks you are doing a custom menu - are any of the other girls doing something different? We really want to do surf and turf but I am afraid that Perla is going to tell me it's like $120 a head....

                On another note - do the packages include a legal ceremony or just a symbolic one? It seems from the descriptions that they only include a symbolic one - if no one is sure I will just email Perla and add it to the list of questions I already have for her!
