Sending Deposits

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else feel really weird about sending the deposits? I feel like I am just sending these checks with no real accountibility. For those who used Maye, she asked me for a check that she can give as a deposit to the musicians. I feel weird though cause I have no contract with Maye and have never even spoke to the musicians. What did you guys do?

Alisa,

I'm using Maye too. I totally know what you mean, that's how I felt in the begining too. I'm actually getting ready to send Maye a check for our rehearsal dinner deposit. I just document everything, I send the check to her bank by mail address & I'm ok with it. I feel ok because several other ladies on this board have used her & not had a problem.

I agree its kind of scary just sending all this money especially when things are so far away and you have never met them before. I agree with Christa though as long as the person has a good reputation I feel okay sending things. I guess you just have to be careful to document everything just in case.

Christa did you have to pay Maye the full amount in advance for her services? I don't mean for other vendors or rehearsel dinners, I mean just for her specific fee?

Glenda - no, I just had to pay her $400 which is 50% of her coordination fee.

I was feeling the same way. I need to mail a deposit for my wedding to some address in Miami when the check is for Costa Rica. I am a little scared. I just might send it certified just to make sure that it gets there.

Angie,
I had to send my venue deposit to San Diego for Cabo...I think it's common for these properties to have a US business address to make their banking easier. It's difficult to turn a US check into cash in a foreign country. But, I like your certified idea :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
