Ash - I didn't realize the dress would be so hard for me, I love shopping, love clothes, learning how to make them even yet I had the hardest time. Oh and I went WAAAY over budget. :)

 

I think maybe more negotiating is done at the resort with the onsite wedding coordinators... as scary as that sounds that's one thing that all past AS brides have mentioned everything gets sorted out with WC @ AS.

 

That might be a good idea for you to plan on that Allisa with your small group.

 

By the way Zocollo Terrace has gone from, no limit to 40, to 50 and now is back down to 40 :)

 

Also anyone being forced to get the Silver package (I am since my ceremony is on the sky deck) I asked them to make my 40 person dinner at Spoons the following morning for a farewell breakfast and moved my breakfast in bed to the following morning.

 

I'm also going to have them upgrade my cake for a small fee to a square 2 tier.

 

Pictures of my dress coming soon, doesn't look great because it's the sample and it was way too big for me :)

Ok here are some, not great because the dress doesn't fit yet but you get the idea. It's off white, super light, not hot at all and so comfortable, when the tail (peacock) is bustled up it looks amazing! (That's not the shoe I got BTW, the sales lady was just clowning around, we were having a great time... mutiple people were taking pix so that's why we aren't looking at one camera!)

 

It's a Matthew Christopher - Lalique

Hey girls,

Im trying to make a wedding website, but I'm not sure what I should say and put on it. Does anyone have a website made that they would mind sharing with me?

Katken, thanks for the info! It's weird that Tiffany originally said to choose one color (and didn't include any more info), but maybe she'll include some of these details when she writes back. Did the cost of the ceremony include that pretty vase with your initials? Thanks!

 

The sand ceremony vases are not included. You can buy them from the onsite coordinators but I don't know what those ones look like. I didn't even ask since I brought my own.

 

I bought them at Say Anything Wedding Signature Plates, Platters, Frames and Sparklers I also ordered my guest book platter there too.

With my BM's messages on it to start it out.

Just a heads up...we were not able to negotiate any pricing. Although you are able to finalize everything with the onsite team, they do not budge on pricing. We tried. Also, you have to have most everything paid for by the time you go down. Any extras can be added and paid at the hotel (like the sand for the sand ceremony, extra charges for set-up, etc.) but my big expenses had to be paid in full before we left. I think the contract says 30 days out and we paid about 7 days out from when we arrived, but there was also the massive swine flu craziness so my numbers kept changing and Fabio was cool about me pushing back payment until I could get a for sure head count.

Kitten--Love the dress, the bottom design is fab!

 

I consider myself a pro shopper and can't believe how hard this has been. So, I have limited myself to 5 designers Roberto Cavalli and Alice Temperly are my favorite two. I'm going to buy an off the rack, more Oscars type white dress. I'm praying this pans out otherwise, potato sack here I comeshitfan.gif

 

Someone asked about a website, here is my link. Stephen & Ashley - wedding website by mywedding.com

 

I am very light on pictures compared to others websites that I have seen. I found this site to be easy to create and monitor.

 

Here's my latest from Tiffany, basically I told her I was sorry and wasn't trying to beat her up about pricing, but found it odd that Lomas would prefer to lose $13k of ceremony and reception business than to negotiate and be reasonable. She decided to contact her person at Lomas and see what could be done, so we shall see. Typically it takes Lomas about 2 weeks to respond though.

 

They have asked for my room payments 60 days out and everything else 45 days.
