      Question- Have most of you ladies that have already had your wedding tipped your coordinator? And how much do you think is a fair amount for a good job? Hmmm...

        I think we tipper her $50 the first day we met her, and then $20-$40 at the end of the wedding day.

        Our day was perfect, but we were also her only wedding for the week, so maybe everythiing went so well cause she only had us to worry about :)

        I like the idea of splitting up the tip. I was planning on just giving Karla 75-100 at our first meeting but it's nice to be able to give her something after the i do's too.

            Karla has been fantastic with me too. I can't wait to meet her and get all the rest of it planned out. I'm kind of clueless when it comes to decor and all that good stuff so I'm really excited to see the choices.

            Are all your guests booked now, Emme and SwoCanadianBride?? That was a fiasco for me but finally we're all sorted out. :-)
            Hi Kiera & Emme

              Have you spoken to Karla about the new resort photographer? I've got mine all booked up but I'd still be interested in seeing what this new one has to offer.

                  Hey ladies,
                  I wanted to add a post now that I can say "We are officially getting married at the GBP Tulum on February 18th, 2010!"
                  I know that it has been said numerous times.....but I am soooooo thankful to have found this forum. All of your questions and comments have made our planning much easier and super exciting.
                  Thanks to my friend Carie for telling me about the forum!!!
                  I look forward to communicating with everyone about our upcoming weddings (Even though I feel like I already know some of you from the 190 pages of reading that I have done!)
