      I'm pretty much waiting til I get there to make all my decisions, but it sounds like I should maybe figure out the music thing.
      i didn't think it was worth the expense of a dj for so few people (33 in my case, 4 of them are kids), so we are using a bose ipod docking station. we splurged and bought it, since the sound system cost more than owning something we can use forever! it may prove to be a pain in the ass (switching songs ourselves), but i couldn't rationalize the expense. the biggest issue is with the bose system you can't use a mic. so we have no mic for announcements/speeches. i figure people can just speak up, but there won't be a "grand entrance" and no emcee.

            30% discount?? I thought that was for only NEW bookings? Do you automatically get the discount or do you have to ask Claudia?

                Thanks, you just freaked me out.... now I have to get on the VOWS! hahaha

                Not going to do a wedding program, I seriously dont think its necessary, I am going to do fans though and just attach a little thank you note to them.

                Will you be doing candle or sand? Now sure if its going to be windy. I just dont want to deal with taking so much stuff with me that Im also considering just a candle

                  Jenn, I cant believe you are getting married in 22 days!! I miss talking to you, I hope you are doing well.

                  I didnt do a program, if I did it would have flown away anyways.

                    Please help!

                    Cecilia is pushing me get have a wedding date and a contract, else, she will not negotiate on trades. I plan to have my wedding on May 14, 2010, but it may change. I don't want to give her my date and later find out that I can't change it. Are we allow to change our wedding date? I emailed her, but she has not responded.

                      it is *really* hard to get a date nailed down with them (mostly because they take so long to respond to emails) ... i wouldn't set a date until you know for sure it's the one you want. that said, dates in may (especially weekends) fill up very quickly as it is a popular month for weddings. by the time you decide you want to change your date, other dates may no longer be available. you really can't expect them to negotiate with you without a contract in play though. they are far too busy to waste their time with people who aren't under contract.
