As for the luggage tags, I am going to stick with the original. I was leaning towards that but sometimes you just need some smart brides to help you make the final decision. Thanks ladies!!

Would you mind sending the template my way?

Did any of you guys notice this last line in the Silver package Description?

 

"Ceremonies at Azul Sensatori Hotel from Canada can be confirmed Sunday to Thursdays only. "

 

I wonder why and if that's the reason I couldn't have my original date???  Just seems strange.

Ladies...here's a quote from their website (in description of the Free Sweet Wedding Package):

 

"Valid in Canada (except at AZS), in USA and MEX and reservations booked at published rates only. 
Must be requested at least 30 days in advance. Free Wedding Package is not valid for AZS in Canada."

 

I booked the Pearl, because we're coming from Norway and to book the "free" you have to book at their published rates, I think we got a good deal on the room rate from our TA, saving us and our guests lots of money.  Since people are travelling so far to be with us, we'd rather spend some money on the wedding then cost even more for everyone else.

I don't believe this! Both of us are Canadian and we got the Free Sweetheart Wedding. Originally we were booked for the silver package, and after reviewing what we wanted, we realized the Free package was plenty and we just added on the flowers and a few other small details. The only thing to get the free wedding was we had to book into a premium room. But we figured spend the extra money on the nicer room/perks and not on the wedding items we didn't want.

 

Also I would compare the Free/Pearl/Silver/Gold packages and see what you actually want/need. If the Free would work, I simply told my WC that we were switching (I didn't ask- I just told her!) and there was no problem. But of course knowing Lomas, they have pulled and quick one and changed the rules again. But I would try for it! Good luck.

Jenny - thank you so much on the tip about the $5 rebate on the Avery Labels at Staples!

 

Brides - if you need avery labels, you should take advantage and pick it up no later than 6/30 which is when the $5 rebate ends. I do not think it is on ALL labels but there will be a sign to let you know which ones do qualify.

Wanted to let you girls about another deal I recently came across- until July 24, Papyrus is offering 20% off custom print orders.  I am planning on getting some cocktail napkins printed.

Hi ladies! Hope you're all having a fabulous day!

 

So, I'm hoping some of our newlyweds and soon to be brides can help me with a question I can't seem to get an answer to!

I've asked my WC a few times about their "set up fee" and she said it can range from $20 to $250. Now, we plan on doing mostly everything [decorations, centerpieces, all the stationery, & OOT bags] and bringing it down with us. I CANNOT justify wasting so much money that Lomas wants to charge on some things, let alone you wouldn't believe how much we're already planning on spending for this wedding.

 

Anyways, she won't give me a straight answer- is this "set up fee" a fee for everything to be set up on the wedding day, or are they going to hit us with 50 fees all at $200 each set u?!?!  That would be a major unexpected headache and I am very displeased already with the lack of response I'm getting from WC.

 

Hope someone can steer me in the right direction, before I have a nervous breakdown LOL

[as much fun as this planning is, who knew it would be such hard work with so many twists & turns!]

 

Thanks!!

Unfortunately, there is no straight forward answer. One depends on your onsite WC; Two- depends on the number of decorations/difficulty to set up; Three number of guests. I think I was told plan for $5-7 per guest. There is just the ONE fee though. And your WC in Miami is not allowed to set a price, only the onsite one can.

 

If I remember correctly we paid $150 US cash to set up for 63 guests. ( so we averaged about $3/person) This included hanging lanterns for ceremony, lanterns at reception, menu and name cards, centrepieces, seating assignment table, kids activity book/crayons and guest signing table. But I also know girls who had less stuff, about the same number of guests and paid $225. And just remember to take CASH to pay for this.

 

Also don't know when you plan on handing out the OOT bags, but the hotel charges you $6/bag should you want them to give them to the guests or deliver to their rooms. We just made sure to meet all our guests as they arrived and gave them their OOT bags ourselves.

Hope that helps.
