    Yeah I know... looks more like 7 unknowns but that's ok, they'll just have to deal with it. Yeah one of my bridesmaids is determined to make it but she is an actress and out of work at the moment. She told me she just got new headshots and should book something soon so it's basically riding on the "consistancy" of Los Angeles. I'm really easy going about it though, ALL my wedding party is booked (10 people) and she would make the odd 11th which is fine either way. I decided, I can no longer stress over things, it just makes me snap.

    I'm considering cancelling her bouquet but if I do that, she'll for sure show up.
    OMG, Amy, your almost 2months out wowwwwww

      Our final payment to Tiffany is due on Monday, and she just sent me our latest details sheet. After all these MONTHS of planning, she says that Karisma has a brand new policy. We can no longer have our reception on the Blue Terrace if we have less than 50 people and we have to change the location to inside the restaurant. Are you F-ing kidding me? This is the only outside location they have unless we want to be on the beach. I am so so so so so mad.

      Holy bullsh**!! Okay. lets think here. The brand new policy started AFTER you signed your wedding contract therfor it does not apply to you .. either email her that statement or Skip right over her and call her boss, you have every right to call her supervisor, Fabio. PM me and ill send you his email and number if you want. DO not take NEW policy for an answer. No way, no how. He firm and strong with your statements to her . Take it from me, I was just there, the beach is windy and cold at night.

        I'm asking bc my fabulous (that's sarcasim) WC, Tiffany has been avoiding my question as to whether the other wedding booked on my day (it's at 3, mine is scheduled for 430) is also on the Sky Deck. I have asked her flat out three times. Her latest response was "There will be time for your set up to be done on the Sky Deck. The on site team is prepared for situations like this."

        Umm...that still doesn't directly answer my question but I'll assume that it means that the other wedding will also take place on the Sky Deck. Assuming that they'll be up there for an hour, that really leaves very little time to break down that party's decorations and put mine up. Very, very annoying.

        Uggh, I guess I'm just hitting a stroke of bad luck or am in a particualry foul mood today. My TA (I'm using Camille at Destination Weddings) hasd been very short with my guests when they call, or is taking 5 days to return their calls and emails. Also, for those that want to book directly through her she is cutting them off and telling them to go to the DW site. How annoying! I want my guests to feel taken care ofand considering that a large number of my guests rarely travel this is a big expense and hassle for some of them. I think that the least that she should do is answer their questions and help them with the booking process. I mean, that's her job right? I sent her an email last night to say all of this and, surprise, I still haven't heard back.

        Someone please tell me I'm crazy and I'll chill out. Otherwise, I think I might ask to switch both my WC and TA. Does anyone know who to call about Tiffany at Karisma? Anyone have a TA at Destination Weddings that they like working with?

        Ahh...sorry for the rant. I guess it is just one of those days.

        Thanks everyone!
        I had a legal ceremony AND sand ceremony which took all of 20+ mins... At the most 25mins lol so quick.
        I thought there was a rule of only 2 weddings a day, I could be wrong, But I thought i read that somewhere... Ill have to do some research? No surprise to me, Tiffanys dancing around your question. It drove me nuts.
        I would call her directly and ask her. Then after your phone conversation write her an email confirming everything you talked about. But ask her how far in advance may your guest arrive at ceremony location for pictures etc. I know this is rough to hear, but trust me when I say the onsite team will do everything to accomadate YOU. They really will make it run smoothly and fix everything Tiffany f's up. They seriously ROCK.
        As for the DW.com, I had Gayle. I wonder if you call gayle and speak with her directly if she can help. Gayle was amazing to everyone in my group, which was 20+ppl. My family raved about Gayle. If you want her info, pm me and Ill send it over. Otherwise send your ta an email saying you have received complaints about her and wondered if she's having a hard time with your group and that you would be ok with changing agents if she doesn't want your wedding group because you'd rather not have complaints and want a stress free planning expirence...

        Goodluck :I & let me know if I can help.

            You're amazing. Thanks so much for all of the advice. Camille finally got back to me and I think we're on the path to working things out.
            Going to send Tiffany a note now about when my guests can arrive. I didn't even think about that!

                Tiffany is my WC as well, and she told me the ceremony is 30 minutes....I"m getting married on the beach. I'm sure that there will be no problem for set up. I have only heard good things about the onsite planning and I dont think they would screw you over like that. You need to talk to Fabio I think about Tiffany.

                  Get on the phone and call Fabio....I dealt with them changing their photographer policy on me after I had already booked one and it had been okayed with them, then they said no. I fought it big time and got it back to what they had originally said. Grace was the one who was in charge back then...not sure if she is still.

                    That is so crazy - the maximum amount of people is 50 on the Terrace - so what, unless you have EXACTLY 50 people - you can't use it? I think Tiffany is confused. That is the stupidest policy change I have ever heard.

                    Let us know how you make out with Fabio.

                    Having the reception on the beach is very expensive too. You have to rent a dance floor and lights I think. Azul would need to cover those charges then.

                    I also have spoken to a woman named Roxy who is AWESOME. She got married at AB last year and works at Karisma. You call the wedding department and ask for her, I don't know her direct contact details. My TA put me in contact with her.

                      Haha you KNOW that will happen. Maybe you can give the bouquet to a family member if she doesn't show?
