    Ya I mean you have enough to deal with. That's horrible that as bridesmaids they have not taken care of that. I am sorry that you are baby sitting. Well this day is all about you so everything else they have to handle lol.

      i have one question! i noticed you have 31 guest booked for your wedding. how many did you initially invite? i just want to get an idea of how many people will actually book, to help my budgeting! thanks!
       

      We invited about 75-80 assuming every person would bring a date.

          Ok so I thought that I read on here that when everyone was talking about the light up dance floor that someone had said that the resort provided a dance floor but it was not light up...?

           

          I guess I am just super annoyed because I was not going to originally get a DJ but since we are having our reception on the beach, I want to make sure we do have some sort of dance floor set up.

           

          I emailed our WC Maritza and she basically just said that the DJ can bring it and it is $850 for his services that are from 1-3 hours. Does anyone know what the official word is on this?

           

          Thanks!!

            Hi Risa,

             

            I think you should check that out! I believe you can actually just rent the light up dance floor without having to hire the entire DJ service and pay almost 900!! I myselft do not plan on using a DJ because they do provide you with a sound system in which you can plug in your ipod to. I've seen pics of the speakers and they are pretty big! i Have pics if you want to see them! I would ask your WC what the cost of the floor alone might be........Even tho their checklist says 600 for the floor which is crazy! But i got this price sheet from a girl on here for dj Mannia's services and the price for a 12x12 light up floor was 400.......which is better than what the resort would charge you!

                My fingers are crossed!!  I sent in mine yesterday, waiting now for the final bill.  I hope everything is added up correctly according to the package I got.  I have a feeling something will be messed up, haha.

                 

                Some good news is that I got my OOT Bags, Tumblers, & Playing Cards in this week.  I will take some pics and put them up.  They look good!  The tumblers don't match my color theme (teal & coral)....they are Orange & Blue, but that's to celebrate the Florida Gators big game that weekend, hehe.

                  Yikes, already!!! I'm the week after you. Was I suppose to do this by now? Do you when is the latest I can submit it? I am still waiting on 2 more people to confirm if they are coming or not. Super annoying...they sent in their RSVPs declining but called me last week to tell me that they are trying to figure out if they can come but I still don't have a final answer from them.

                    this is what i was told (and i asked 2 different WCs and got the same answer) --> the reception includes a basic dance floor (doesn't light up) that is white wood.  i think someone has posted a photo of it on this forum.  there's no charge for that.

                     

                    the light-up dance floor from the resort is $700 (on the price checklist from your WC).  i did see some brides post that they were given a light-up dance floor even though they did not pay for it, but i would not chance it if you want it.  i am undecided for myself, although i am getting married in december & it will be dark during my beach reception & it would look really really cool.  leaning towards it...

                     

                    with any outside vendor, remember that you are charged $350 fee in addition to whatever they charge.

                     

                    on the subject of invitations & # of guests, i invited 116 people and it looks like we will have 40-50.

                      this is what my WC told me (copied from her email):

                       

                      Please return wedding information sheet 60 days prior to your wedding date.

                        Please note final payment is due 45 days prior to your wedding day. If final payment is not paid 30 days prior to your wedding date, your wedding will be CANCELLED!!! Once final payment is received, 30 days prior to your wedding date you will then be forwarded to an on-site wedding coordinator in Mexico. She will set up an appoinment for when you arrive and she will take care of you and make sure that everything runs smoothly.
