        Wanna hear something hilarious (i must be delirious cuz i find it funny)?

        My event coordinator for my Dallas reception won't send me a contract so I can send him money and book the venue! lol was he sent from the Michigan office? tee hee

        I'm giving him benefit of the doubt since he recently replaced someone, but jeez it's been a week and he told me this morning he PROMISED to have it to me by earlier today (still nothing).

        So comical...

          There is no price difference; they are both 850. I think with the resort you just get the DJ and I'm not sure about any extras, but if you book through Ivan, you get 2 cold fireworks, mask, balloons, etc. How much did you all who booked Ivan pay and did you book him directly or through the resort? THIS IS ALL SOOOOO CONFUSING!!! I really want straight answers!
          Agreed. It just all the inconsistencies that truly drive me nuts!! Thank god for this site and all the wonderful brides on here!
          I agree! I am over hear yelling!


          Did anyone add on a cocktail hour to your package? Julie told me $15.00 pp but the form she emailed says $10.00. I really need some consistency! I am stuck on trying to find out what we are doing for our welcome event and guess what? I got selected to be on a jury today. I need to take days off work and I have soooo much going on!

          For you all who are making OOT bags, how are you going to pass them out?

          Now, on another note, I found out that someone else booked. So now we have 15!!! YAY!!!!
          I'm very thankful for you ladies!

            geez, it can't be stressed enough to keep all your emails! This is a little ridic! I added a cocktail hour at 10/pp (that is for cold cocktails), I believe the "hot" option is 20/pp. I have no idea where the 15/pp came from

            Congrats on your 15 guests! And I would also like to know about OOT bags. I hear its like $5 for each bag for them to hand deliver them to rooms. Those thieves! I thought about waiting for my guests in the lobby on the day they arrive to give it to them but that is a lot of work and I want to lay on the beach and relax!!
            yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

              We used this one
              So I finally made an appointment to try on dresses next Friday ..blah lol. I know I shouldn't discount anything without trying it on, but I have my heart set on a few Maggie Sottero (destinations) options, but I've already called 4 stores and none of them carry them (even though they are listed on the MS site as carrying the line).. :-(
              That is a bummer that they don't carry the ones you're looking for
              honeyfund.com is free. That is who we used. You can however upgrade to be able to add backgrounds and pictures for 29.00. We didn't do a wedding website so I opted to upgrade and make it a dual purpose. If you want to see an example of one...Site Requirements for Honeyfund.com, the free honeymoon registry <--- that is ours. We just posted it not long ago.
              So cute! Great job!!

                beachbum1285,

                That is beautiful!! How are you getting them to set it up like that? What I mean is, what are your specific instructions to them? Are they going to provide the extra tool/fabric in your co-ordinating colours or are you going to take it down with you? What about the two beautiful flower arrangements? Are you paying extra for that?

                Man, if they can set it up like that, then I will def have it on the beach!!!

                  You ladies that booked Ivan last year are lucky! It seems that the price is the same as the Royal, and he DOES NOT provide the dance floor in the cost - it's an additional $750 or something like that. We are DANCERS (meaning me, lol) so I'm going to splurge for the dance floor - just told FI the cost incl. the dance floor, and didn't mention that the dance floor was extra, lol. To me, there are some extras that are worth it - I'd rather pay the $750 for the dance floor than $75 per table (we have 10 tables) for centre pieces!

                  Ivan seems really cool and nice though. He said that he has an agreement with Real Resorts that they will not charge people vendor fees if they book him directly. He also cc'd that email to the wedding manager who is based in Cancun.

                  Hmm, I think I have to look up Mexico's law governing contract law (i'm in the legal profession). Here, emails are agreements and once agreed upon it's terms and accepted, it is a binding contract. I will have to see whether that is the same in Mexico. If it is...and they try to screw with me...best watch out lol.

                    Thanks! I've been keeping them. I read the thread from beginning to end so I've been saving EVERYTHING! It's just so frustrating!

                    More than likely, we are going to have a welcome cocktail and pass them out there. The next night we will probably have a rehearsal event (dinner or something-still planning it) and pass them out for those who weren't at the first event.

                      Did he actually say that anyone who books him directly won't have to pay the vendor fee? I emailed him last night and he said that we do have to pay the vendor fee because we booked him directly. I would like to get bottom of this.
