    Hi Jade,

     

    You can visit the Lomas Planning Site for most decor related pricing. http://www.weddingsb...l.com/planning/. This is a great way to start organizing your budget!

     

    Regarding your wedding package, you do have to pay an additional fee for the Sky Deck Package. I would suggest opting for the lowest package (Pearl or Silver) and then upgrading your amenities. It often works out to be more cost effective.

     

    Happy Planning!

     We did a pre-travel brochure (which we mailed to our guests in advance). Then I made this welcome brochure for the OOT bags.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     You can also see a photo of them in my planning journal: http://www.bestdesti...-template-heavy

     

    It was all done in Word, so super easy to edit/change for your own wedding. And printing was quite cheap at Staples.

     

    Info included: a welcome/thank you note. Map of resort. Locations where functions where to occur (wedding, reception, etc.). Time line of wedding day. Names of our guests. Tips for around the resort, good sightseeing trips, car rental info, etc.

     

    Hope that helps. If there is anything else specific, feel free to ask.

    Murmel - AS ALWAYS...YOU ARE A LIFE SAVER!!!!!!!! Thank you soo much. It is definitely very helpful. I have been going crazy the last couple of weeks trying to figure this part out. I know I still have 2 months but I feel like I still have so much to do..AHHH!!! Working on OOT Bags and music this month and next month is my headpiece, bridal sash/belt and any other last minute things I may have forgotten.

     

    I am having a welcome dinner the night before the wedding at Spoon, so all of my guests can get to know each other. Did you (or any other brides) play music during this (assuming you had a welcome dinner).  Not sure if its necessary since everyone will be talking? Thoughts?

     

    Thanks again!

      I was told by my Miami based WC that in the restaurant you cannot decorate or play music of your choice.  This is why I have chosen a private event for my reception.  I would assume the rules are going to be the same for a dinner the night before.  I am doing the same thing the night before.  I didn't bother to ask about music or decorations as it was a no for the reception.

        Yep, that's correct.  We had our reception dinner at Spoon and didn't have music (but that was ok with us).  We did have the table decorated but I'm not sure they will do that for a welcome dinner or not.

So first of all, thank you all for posting the information you have. I will be glad to share or answer any questions I can as well. Second, I was wondering if anybody has bought their own sheers for the gazebo. I am thinking of doing this, but my WC says there will be a set up fee. Do any of you know how much it would be? I am trying to decide if I will be saving money or wasting precious luggage space to get them down there.

          I brought my own shears down - paid $24 for shimmery organza at JoAnne's and it takes up almost no room in the luggage.  There will be a setup fee but they usually charge it for the total amount of setup you have for ceremony and reception.  From what I've seen before none of the Miami WC will say what the fee is as it is determined at the resort by the onsite WCs.  However, now that more and more brides are bringing their decorations, they may change that.  Who knows!  I put my foot down when they told me it was to be a $250 setup fee and we got it down to $75.  We had the smaller gazebo and had them hang 2 sheers, capiz shells, and the large starfish.

            We did this and love it!  My kids each had their own color and my husband and I each had sand from the beach.  I thought we could just scoop it up during the ceremony but the WC said they'd have the vases filled with beach sand for us.  They said they like to do it a few hours ahead of time so it dries out and pours easily.  I never would have thought of that!

            Ahh...thanks for the info. Good to know no music at Spoon...one less thing I need to think about.

             

            Question on Groomsmen gifts - Do you get them all the same gift? Or is it a big no no to give them different gifts? A couple of guys I know would really appreciate watches and a couple of guys would really appreicate a mini bourbon barrel and a couple of other guys would appreciate a shaving set.  My FI and were thinking of giving them gifts based on what we think they would like and their personalities. Is this ok?
