Wedding cake - we are just going to have the hotel do it because we could never get in touch with anyone anywhere else. Reception Dinner - we are going to just see if they can fit our group in at Fajita Republic in Nuevo Vallarta. We have tried to contact them and got no response.

We are definitely going to take care of our WC! I am going to hook her up with an OOT bag filled with local stuff from here and a nice tip. She works her butt off!
Yep and awesome! I always ask, when I'm invited to something down here, if they mean "Mexican Time" or "American Time" ... because if they mean "Mexican Time" then I'm usually sitting around for 45 minutes or so waiting for everyone else to get there! wink.gif

Getting no response is common (as you all have learned and/or are figuring out!). If it makes you feel better, it happens to us, too, which is why we have to go visit the place instead. smile105.gif

You're not clueless! Just things work differently down here and it's easy to not know that if you don't live through it :). And how are you going to know if someone doesn't say, "hey guys...". wink.gif

Thank you for the information. It is good to have a different perspective on things. It is a shame though because wedding planning is no joke, I admire all those who actually plan events for a living.
