    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 :)
