And someone said the cesear salad was invented in Mexico, so its a nice Mexican thing to do! I think it was $3 or $4 more per person. AND of course the donkey cocktail hour though I totally forget what we ordered from the apps menu.
Great minds and same first name! I love it :) That is a really good idea, I might add a salad because I personally LOVE ceviche but everyone else might not be into it.

Wait no more donkey? My fiance was really looking forward to that. And KittenHeart how is your experience with DW? I like my TA but I am beginning to worry that she doesn't know as much as she lets on and I worry that she may have ulterior motives for being so gung ho for AS.
You think that's bad... I saw some wedding pictures shot by Elizabeth Medina and absolutely fell in LOVE with the chairs they used. My coordinator warned me they were expensive and Loma's has never negotiated on prices for chairs BEFORE she even told me the price... $12 per chair, $4 per cushion. I died a little inside and showed my FI the price to get shot down... he told me he loved the chairs so much and to just get them! =X Waste of money I know but the chairs were something that bothered me for some reason.

I definitely don't want to freak you out... but I just switched TA's because my former one was TERRIBLE, he was slow to respond and kept screwing up the quotes. I just, literally yesterday got assigned someone new. I'm afraid to ask who your TA is for fear we have the same one. The chick I have now seems fine but only time will tell. Keep in mind, this is my experience and there are girls on here that RAVE about their DW.com TA.

If would still try and request the Donkey Cocktail and mention that it's on the Event Banquet options, see if maybe you could

Is it me or should they have specific wedding menus? For instance does anyone know if you you do the sky wedding do you pick your hor dourves from the "white glove" menu? Also there is one menu where a dinner is $20 and then a comparable entree on a different menu that is almost $50.

If someone could let me know their budget breakdowns that would be awesome. Also if the hotel was willing to negotiate on prices too...

Thanks!!!
I think you can choose any menu and there is no negotiating from what I have experienced.

Is anyone using Claudia Rodriguez? I have her booked, and emailed her over a week ago to confirm the price for my package, but she hasn't replied to me. Is anyone else not hearing from her?

That's the first I've heard of that... last I heard, we couldn't have the cocktail reception up there. I can ask my coordinator... I've been planning my wedding now for almost 2 years so things could have changed or I'm just loosing my mind wink.gif

My cocktail reception will be on the beach on the wooden palapas. When I was given options of cocktail reception areas, Sky Deck wasn't listed but who knows it could be an option now.

I'm doing the donkey cocktail hour which is no longer offered. It's 5 mexican hor'derves, open bar and Filemon the donkey which you can take pictures with, $10 per person.
Amy,Im totally opposite, ONLY because ive had horrible expirence with off site coordianter and Ive got quick acurate answers from my DW ta. Im jealous that youve had such a good expirence with your offsite....

Welcome to the party! Were happy to have you!! Im having a private reception in 16 days WOW lol, and I promise to report back to you girls on food. I did the 3course meal, a salad, chicken and potatoes & veggies and flan for dessert. I find the banquet menu confusing as well...
some things they will say refer to banquet menu on lomas website, somethings LIKE CHAIRS, you dont refer to lomas, of course not cause theyre cheaper on there haha, go figure S&M.gif
