I was told around $250 in cash. They are setting up the ceremony for me as I am bringing my own sheers and chair decorations. They are setting up the reception, which includes custom drink table seating cards, lights and other decor around the gazebo, a memory table, and table decorations: centerpiece and each person will have a flower and tealight as part of their setting.
Azul does seem to charge a lot for everything. I was going to do everything through them and tried to negotiate prices but that did not work. I was willing to pay a little more for their services as there is a convenience factor, but I am not about to get ripped off. It really is there lost because I am only doing the bare minimum with them now.

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!]
