      So for Oct/Nov we have:

       

      Sonn2BMrsS             Oct 21  (travel Oct 18-25)

      futuremrsroo              Oct 28  (travel Oct 26-???)

      mgl27                       Oct 29  (travel Oct 24-Nov 1) 

      clgriffi7                      Nov 5    (travel Nov 2-10)

      bnwedding2011          Nov 8    (travel Nov 5-12)

       

      Exciting that there will be a bit of overlap for a few ladies to see each others' weddings.  Just 3.5-4 months for all of us...about time, eh?  Sorry - I have been engaged since last June so it will be a long 17 months in the making.

          I will say this does kind of depress me a bit.  I haven't had a chance to do my review yet, and everything was great, but there were those "extras"  I never seemed to encounter.  We left what in my opinion was a good tip.  We left $50 last year at our site visit, and $200 this year (most people said they left between $100-$150), and it was really hard to part with it, because after $500 in extra luggage, we were broke.  Well, aside from what we agreed on earlier, no extras.  Not only that, I had specifically asked for rose petals to be put into little organza bags for our petal toss at the recession, and she put my own fake ones in the bag that I had given her for the centerpieces.  I didn't find out until later, or else I would have confronted her during the reception.  But I was wondering why they blew away when people tossed them (  i mean, it was a windy day, but real petals would have had a better chance).  I'm not just mad about the fact that I had rose petals in my contract and she used my own, but that she used fake petals that littered the environment.  They aren't supposed to do that.  But back to the extras.  We had a bose sound dock, but because it started raining, we opted to extend our 1 hr of free sound (we had at our reception) to the rest of the night, and we tipped the sound guys, and I thought for sure she might let us have it, but nope, the next day we had a charge.  I know some people got a dj instead of their Bose, or at least a sound system.  I would have been happy with my Bose, but didn't want to chance it with the rain.  And they kept replaying the same songs at our dinner, and I gave them a huge selection.  Well, at least they did a great job at the reception!  And I did have the wedding of my dreams, and Claudia did deserve the tip due to all the times I called.  But still, I thought since we paid for everything (dance floor, extra champagne for extra ppl, upgrades for videographer) we would have gotten at least one of the extras talked about.  Oh well, maybe she thought we were rich and didn't deserve it.  We aren't, we just had over a year to plan and I saved up for two, and paid for pretty much everything ourselves out of pocket.  Either way, we still had the best time (tropical storm and all!)  I promise when I'm finally moved in I will write a review!

           

          Congrats on the ones leaving this week, and the newbies, and the newlyweds!  For all you inbetweeners... hang in there!

          We gave claudia a big tip and seem to get quite a few extras, before i got there i was able to trade my cocktail hour for 10 extra people, and then the mariachi band we traded for our sound system for the reception that turned into a dj with a tip to claudia. We paid for a wood dance floor and she added the lighted one instead, and put up the white flags on the beach

                    Peterpanpixiedust: Which package did you choose? We have the ultimate and are thinking about upgrading our video package, too. I asked Claudia what the cost of upgrading would be and she just sent me the normal price list. Did you just pay the difference between the package 1 and whichever higher package you wanted?

                     

                    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she lets us trade out some things, but definitely bugeting to pay for every little thing! I can't wait to read your review!
