Sorry for all the questions.
They were battery operated. I had about 20 total, half blue and half white. I bought the blue ones at Christmas Tree Shop and the white at Bed Bath and Beyond. I brought down fishing line to hang them up.

Becks,

I read a post that stated you had an excel to-do-checklist. I'm in works of making mine, and I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing yours with me. I've been going through previous pages, looking for the downloadable version of it, but I can't find it.

 

If anyone else has one as well, if you're up for sharing your list, it would be helpful... i want to make sure all my ducks are in a row... you get so far and then you feel like you're forgetting something...

I was wodnering if any of you lovely ladies that are going the iPod route would be kind enough to share what you're playlist looks like. This is one aspect of the planning process that I havent even begun to dive into because I don't really know where to begin. I'd love some ideas, if you girls would be so kind.

I found Mark's suit at AHFashion online, it's 100%irish linen, it's nice and cool and it's really nice!! it's a natural beige colour, so it's light and airy, also, I found suits for our boys to match from Children's Place. Jake will be 3 at the end of April and Josh will be 1 in a couple weeks, and they both have little natural linen suits to match their Daddy, it's too cute!!! :)

My Fiancé Just got his suit this weekend. He has a friend that is a sales man for Hugo Boss so that is where he got it. And they already have the spring summer collection out.

Girls,

 

I have a question for those who used an outside DJ. I am using Carlos Mannia...Perla told us there is a $300 outside vendor fee. That said, SWANK (the hotel's dj) just emailed me their policy and charges for an outside vendor.

 

Is this policy/charge list the same thing as Perla's $300 charge? Please tell me that the the $300 is the total charge by the hotel for using the outside dj!

 

Also - the policy form has a place for us (bride/groom) to sign as well as the outside dj. Did you and your dj have to sign this form for the hotelhuh.gif

 

Thanks!

Hi Meredith and all other PRC brides

 

I apologize Im not that active on this thread, I dont have access to a computer alot of the time but I still like to check it out when I can.

 

We are experiencing the same situation with Luis from Swank. We initially emailed him asking for a quote in which he sent us one that was compeltly out of our budget.

 

We then proceeded to look at an outside vendor and contacted Carlos from Mannia DJ services. They were in our budget and we confirmed with Perla the outside fee was 300$. We then informed SWANK we were not going to be using him and he proceeds to tell us we owe him 15% of his original quote plus taxes and he is charging us an ampage fee based on consumption and a charge for him to be there.

 

We think this is completly unfair as we feel we should have been advised of a quote charge before he issued us that quote. If we knew we were going to have to pay for it then we never would have asked! Never in this entire wedding process planning have we had to pay for a quote.

 

We also think that when we confirmed it was 300$ for the outside vendor we feel we should have been informed about these other fees.

 

We have explained the situation to Perla and she is looking into it for us. I will let you know when I hear back from her. Hopefully she will be able to sort something out!!

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
