    Hey Claudia,

    I will be happy to send you the quotes I got (give me till later today as I am in my office) Off the top of my head, i got quotes from Rayen, Elenay, The Flower Cart, Cabo Flowers, and Mazarte. If I recall, Rayen was the least expensive. I decided to go with Mazarte because I am having a very specific type of design, and flowers are so important to me. To be honest, they weren't a huge difference in prices, maybe a few hundred dollars. I will post them later today. I hope that helps.

      Worse!! my family is Mexican and we like to party hard!!

      I'll see what I can do. My WC (who is a spanish guy, pretty funny) told me about a old "vivero". It doesn't have a beach view, but you can end the party whenever you want and it has beautiful gardens.

      Let's see how it goes. I need to make up my mind fast about location 'cause I need to send invitations a.s.a.p!! And Brian (my fiancee) is not being very helpful with the planning, does any guy helps with the wedding, or are all "yes, honey" whatever you want honey" like?

      Jajaa wish me luck!!

          Claudia, what is your budget for a location? Have you ever thought about renting a villa??

            Yes I did, and the price is not the problem (around 7,000 ocean view, gorgeous pool, etc) the issue is that they have the same 10:30 pm 11 pm policy, so I can't do it there.

            So, I'll continue with the perfect location quest!

            PS. If you know of a nice place without the end party policy, let me know please!!!

                    What month is your wedding? Is it in November? That might have something to do with it. I am getting married next May and she said most of my flowers are in season there.

                      I'm glad to announce I FOUND THE PERFECT LOCATION!!!!! Right in front of the beach, with a nice terrace for the reception, and I can end my party at 2 am!! I'm so happy I wanted to share this with someone!! jajaja

                      They don't have a wedding planner or anything but anyway after the bad reviews I read lately and the fact I'm doing everything anyway, I don't mind.

                      Good luck everybody and wish me luck, I'm my own WC....
