I booked DJ Doremix and Shenko Photography. I found Shenko by sheer coincidence b/c another photographer who was already booked for our date recommended her- I could not have been more happy to have this happen! Her work is amazing and truly inspiring =) The link's below if you want to take a look at her work/pricing. Also, her work is top notch and yet her prices were WAY better than everyone else we researched! Same goes for DJ Doremixx- The highest recommended DJ in the area and cheaper than the resort's DJ. I couldn't find any reviews on the resort DJ's so I wasn't willing to settle & hope for the best.
Yes, as long as you book the vendor a room in their name for 3 nights, the resort will allow them on-site w/o additional charges. It's still cheaper than the $800 outside fee. And also as mentioned below, if they're a guest technically at the resort for 3 nights, they can come before the wedding to meet us at no charge. Also good to know, from what I understand the vendor can check in only on the day of the wedding even if the 3 nights starts before that day. As long as they check in before bringing their equipment in, the resort won't give you a problem.
Hope that helps =)

I also booked outside vendors and was going to pay for them to stay 3 nights because it is cheaper than the outside vendor fee. They both have no intention of staying there. Do you think it will be a problem that we do this? Lynda said it was fine, I just don't want to get there and have any issues.
I didn't even think of day passes for the photographer! I think they want to meet before the wedding and I think the DJ does also.
I can't believe your MOH is making excuses for not handling the situation right away! I give you credit for trying to stay calm about this, b/c I would be very upset with my MOH if she acted as if this wasn't of importance. I'm sure a bit of it may be embarrassment, but regardless it has to get done, the clock is ticking! I hope it works out, and just tell her it means a lot if she takes it into her own hands ASAP, as you have enough to handle.

I can't do everything myself!! Oh, and she is also my MOH.
Yes, you are correct about the measurements and also 2 sheers is fine for the beach gazebo. I think the blue & green would look nice together =)
I LOVE eBay!!! They have so many amazing bulk packages for everything you'd possibly need! And that's a great deal they're giving you for the sheers, good job!!!

ps- the place I am ordering the organza from can only make the width 1.4m, this should not be a problem should it?
Check out Ling's Moment online and Ebay for chair sashes and fabric for the gazebo. I ordered enough sashes for the ceremony and reception b/c I could not bother paying Lomas $4/chair and they were so much cheaper! AND the organza I found for $10/m in stores here, they are giving me the 12m piece for $30 (that's including shipping!) Hope this helps!
