Hi Lucie :o)

you may regret offering your help!! I want to know everything!! lol

Ok, but seriously... what did you pay for from the hotel and what did you provide/do yourselves? from prices we've been given on decorating etc buying our own stuff will probably work out much cheaper.

And any handy hints that you were glad you had, or wished you'd had before you got married??

Thanks loads and loads!

Katie.

This will be my 3rd coordinator now and getting a little worried about the turn over there.

What do you girls think?
I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just retain all of your correspondence so that you can forward it to the new coordinator. You pretty much do most of your planning when you get to the resort anyhow, so I think the onsite planners are way more important then the off site ones.

I had Jo'Zeen and was assigned Kiara a couple of months ago when Jo'Zeen left. Kiara has been great - very quick to respond and gives a ton of information. Don't worry!

Hi Laura,

I'm doing a private reception for 75 (tentative) and, from what I can tell, the cost per head depends upon what menu you choose from the banquet kit. I chose a 3 course meal with a choice of entree, so I think it's about $28/head and that includes open bar. If you want special beverages (e.g., champagne, special wine, etc), that is an additional cost as well. I would request the questionnaire and banquet kit from your WC if you don't have it and that will help you figure out the cost.

Good luck! Hope that helps!

What do people think of these pics?? I'm not too sure about them, but can't put my finger on why...

Are these the only approved photographers for AS?? if not, who are the other ones? and does anybody have a link for egs of their photography?

Thanks :o)

Hi Katie,

I think the pictures look too posed and rather unnatural - I agree there is something not quite right about them.

Has anyone considered how to decorate the palapa for a Zavaz Plaza wedding beyond hanging paper lanters? I was considering using fabrics. So maybe (1) fabric leg wraps with or without bows(http://www.pacificpartycanopies.com/...rapes-blue.jpg), (2) fabric draped inside the roof (something like this -- http://www.pacificpartycanopies.com/...tent-liner.jpg) and/or (3) connect pulled-back fabric between the polls (like this -- http://www.liweddings.com/mywedding/album/i/33493.jpg). Any thoughts -- would it look stupid to have the legs and inside with fabric and not the top. Would it look good to drap the whole thing, including the top. Would it look nice to drap only the legs? Other ideas?

No problem Katie.

Im not very impressed with them too be honest, I also think they are plain and very unnatural. They didnt WOW me!
I have sent an email of complaint to my WC who has said she will pass this on but i havent heard anything back from the maangement. I've told them that for a hotel of this standard I would expect an equivalant high standard of photographer eg Elizabeth Medina/Claudia.

Im getting worried now because if the hotel does happen to turn around and say we can have an outside photographer, will they have availability? arghhhh!!!

There is another approved photographer, Matias Cano but I wasn't impressed with these ones either.

god, they are going to HAVE to sort out the wedding photographers at this place.

 

my bet is that they get these semi-pro photogrpahers of sub-standard quality, and they pay them accordingly...then we get ripped off with what we pay/have paid. it's all about the money making.

 

plus if we don't like them, and go to other photographers, thats even more revenue for them - the $500 for bringing them in and then if they stay at the hotel, thats additional money for them too.

 

I better be offered better ones when I get to that stage, or I am going to really kick off. I live farrrr too far away to be flying in my own photographer so will be stuck with theirs, and the photos are one of the most important things for me.

 

AS - sort it out!!!!!!!!

 

Katie.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
