The set up fee must be paid in cash. The rest of the balance I paid using a credit card (only Visa & MasterCard). The WCs probably pocket the cash - so maybe you can sweeten the pot for your coordinator who might be willing to bend the chair rules for a hundred bucks or so? Maybe worth the try??
    It was my initial idea to just wait until I get the the resort and see what happens. Like I said, I don't HAVE to have them, just figured it would be a nice addition. Problem is, I was gonna pull the "you didn't tell me that card" because I have an email where I blatantly asked if I'd have to pay twice and she never answered me. She just re-quoted the price. I know it would be a long shot buy gotta try.

    I know, I feel the same way. But then again. AS is so not willing to budge when it comes to money, I'm not really all that surprised. Please keep me posted on your head way them and I'll do the same!

    My thought exactly. I'm booking them for the ceremony and will totally bribe to have them moved. Thanks for the advice!
    I would definitely say that if you go them for $5 that a GREAT deal. Mine were still $12 and she wouldn't budge on that. I hadn't gotten my TA involved because it wasn't that big of a deal for me. Figured I'd use negotiating power for stuff I can't live without.

    We planned on having 2 couples go with us, then my mom and brother wanted to come so DH invited his parents and sister and brother-in-law and then it expanded and I have 30+ people coming now... how crazy is that?
    I have her email address if you need it Amanda.

    Amy, you guys really are having 3 weddings!! Jealous!!!

    Has anyone been to both resorts and have any comments
    What is everyone getting their maid of honours or bridesmaids for gifts?
    I bought their shoes, flip flops for after the ceremony, jewelry for the ceremony, going to pay to get their makeup done and going to make them shirts when I come up with a good idea for them. I feel like I should do more, but don't have any really good ideas yet. Check out The Knot Shop. They usually have good sales. Tiffany jewelry sounds great but expensive. Maybe you can check out the clearance section at a really nice jewelry store in your area. Sometimes they have really nice options.

    I have just decided on Azul Sensatori! Yeah! Date June 11 2011. Right now we are getting the invite list together but trying to decide whether to send out save the dates and wanted to know what others have done for destination weddings. What else should I be doing? So clueless!

          So, I was about to post the pics of my centerpieces but cannot figure it out. I'll try again tomorrow but it seems like when I upload, every single pic from my computer is uploaded. Who knows what I did....so computer illiterate

            Ok so I literally posted every single pic on my computer somehow. I was gonna post the pics of the centerpieces but that obviously didn't go well. I'll try again tomorrow.

              No clue at all. But figure I still have a long time to decide on this one. Don't even have all the BMs confirmed yet.

              YAY! Congrats!!
              Awesome! It makes me feel good to know your in the same price bracket as me
              This makes me feel like our quote is kind of pricey. But it is coming from Canada (which always seems to be more $ and includes waay too much in tax from the airlines - - like $290pp in tax alone!) and is for a full week.

              I can only hope that I am nearly this organized when I reach the same point in planning that you're at! Good work! Can't wait to see the centerpieces. I'm trying to decide if I'll end up bringing mine with etc. The ones from Lomas seem so pricey. Are you packing all the stuff with you??

                Thank you!!! The To Do list always makes me realize how much I get done and it's a great feeling.

                About the banner, the website really does not do it justice. We were surprised at how great it looks in person. High quality, good graphics and huge. Not cheesy in any way. It's a steal too! I would send you a picture of ours but the one we currently have got crushed during the shipping so it's all crinkly. The company is sending us another one set to ship tomorrow. Really great customer service, btw.
                LOVE the banner! Great idea
                Haha, when I originally created I didn't realize that would be my name that everyone sees from some reason. But yeah Im in love with a ginger...my real name is Meghan by the way ;-)
                LOL welcome!

                I'm still waiting for my May 6 2011 confirmation, and trying to figure out what to do for the STDs. I'm thinking I might just design a postcard and order from Vistaprint since they have a special right now, you get 100 for free! These girls are incredibly helpful, you will tons of info on here

                    We aren't quite there yet but my FMIL and her TA are bulldogs. (My FMIL was a TA for 25 years so she is helping us out) but with that said we haven't signed on the bottom line yet. I will let you know what they say and if they end up locking in 2010 rates for me so maybe you can get the same thing.
                    Maggie and Jay GOT married on May 15th 2011 at Azul Sensatori. Best International Wedding EVER!

                      Very true, it is a Maggie Sottero and I got it 50% off the listed price so I can probably sell it...

                      I'm sure you shouldn't have a problem selling a Maggie. I would just hate for you to keep 2nd guessing and on your wedding day be mad at yourself for not doing what you REALLY want. As far as STDs, my TA did the ones on Vista Print for me. We were able to put a pic on it and everything. It wasn't what I wanted but it did help with the budget. I spent the $ on personalized stamps for our invites instead.
