It sounds like she thinks it's the floating sky lanterns and said no due to health and safety.

Ya, that's what I was thinking too! I emailed her back to clarify a few things cause most of her responses didn't really answer any of my questions... they were all really vague, lol! Still no details confirmed, so we wait some more :( 

 

Hopefully you hear something soon!! :)

Ceremony (3-3:30) - 6 orange chair sashes the reserve seating for parents in the front row.

 

Cocktail hour (5-6) - guest book that I ordered online that is actually more like a photo book of us where people can write comments 

 

Dinner (6-8) - instead of table numbers, we are going to have gold picture frames with the guests' photos inside the frame to show which table they are at. I also plan to bring plum tea candles, plum and diamond table confetti, fake orange lillies, and an orange lilly cake topper for the cake. Might also bring a microphone and mini speaker so people can do speeches in restaurant. 

 

poolside reception (8-10) - I will probably just bring the guest book for those who havent signed it yet... i think we are renting lights with the speaker rental for ipod?

I just ordered more natural flowers (for around the gazebo) two hanging arrangements, a regular bouquet and lots of petals. Plus individual flowers for the chairs and we are just using the plain white chair covers that are included. I'm not using the red carpet in the gazebo because my bridesmaids are wearing light pink so we are using petals for the walkway. I specifically asked that NO fake flowers be at our event (because it's whats included).

 

I asked that these flower arrangements be transported to dinner and the reception site. I think I am going to do luggage tags for name tags on the dinner table. We have a signing frame for a photo instead of a guest book since we only have 25 people coming down.

I LOVE your luggage tag idea!

We are having about 50 people coming to our wedding.

Just an FYI I got everything sorted out so that our Canadian photographer can take photos. Crisis averted. I also clarified that at the legal wedding we can do our own vows and a poem (although she didn't clarify when in the ceremony, she did say the legal vows and our own vows could be said one-by-one). Our witnesses do not need to stand for the whole ceremony (so say I wanted my dad to be one) we could just call on that person from the crowd at the time of signing.

 

My wedding coordinator Maria pretty much told me not to listen to what's online. lol I guess different brides/different wedding coordinators end up with different information.

 

Maria has been really good so far (it takes a while because she's busy sometimes) but I've been firmed up on location for ceremony, reception and dinner and many of the details for months and months.

 

We are getting close we leave for the airport in 30 days 19 hours!

Yes they offer white sashes at ceremony for free - and colored ones you can rent. I am keeping all chairs plain, but buying 6 orange sashes for 6 seats as "reserved" in the front.... one for my dad, step mom, ring bearer, fiances mom and dad, and leaving an open chair for my mom who passed away 9 years ago... and then having each bridesmaid and myself leave an empty flower on the seat for my mom. 

 

From Jazmin: 
The sashes for the chairs included are white, but If wish to have another colors is possible, the cost is 4usd each (minimun 30 + 45usd per transfer & set up)

I am trying to get more information about the items listed in the Unforgettable Package (I am getting the things listed in the 2013 package).

 

1. Room Upgrade - can anyone clarify if this is just from the Junior Suite to the Royal Golden Section? (I'm in COBA)

2. Upgraded in-room amenities - What are these?

3. Romantic Candlelight Dinner with Reservation (has to be requested before arrival - which I did). How is this any different from a normal a-la-carte dinner?

4. Keepsake wedding souvenir? What is this?

5. Stress free Jacuzzi/bath in the room? Do they just fill my bathtub for me lol?

 

As for the gold bracelets we get, I asked Maria if this allows us unlimited a-la-carte dinners like I've read on the forums. She responded:

 

"You will have the Gold Brazalate, it is part of your wedding package and is for identify you as a wedding couple- VIP for us, but it no means unlimited a la carte dinners.You will receive a special amenities in your room, a nice location and if you wish an extra dinner a la carte you can book it if we have availability in the Restaurant of your prefference."

 

Does anyone know how many dinners I will get then? The wedding dinner counts as 1? I am just trying to figure it out..

The Royal Golden Section people get 4 a-la-cartes I think, we are staying 2 weeks, so that's 8, plus 1 extra used for the wedding dinner.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
