He wants me to tell my TA that is too much money and that he should do better for us. or what? im not sure. We have obviously signed our contract, booked our guests, I have explained to him all the reasons we chose this resort (kid friendly, catholic ceremony, close to airport, nice resort with good food) and this is the resort we chose. Anyways, he is still mad and wants me to email. he is actually looking over my shoulder and thinking I am writing to our TA now, lol, obviously I am not!! Also thinks I am too nice and letting TA take advantage of us. I am not a confrontational person and I think our TA is being honest with us about pricing from the suppliers. I am not paying for the wedding, he is, so he does get a say but still!! he is driving me crazy!! So much for an easy beach wedding lol! i know it will be all worth it, but this is what I'm dealing with! Thanks for listening, I feel like no one else understands what I'm going through. Thank God for this forum!
wow, yeah, $800.00 is a great price for a week! Did they discount it since it was your second week? Tell your fiance that my FI and I are planning on spending $1000 for 2 Honeymoon nights!!! I bet that will make him feel better! )

Hope that helps!
Hmm, decisions decisions!! I guess it all depends on the day, but it does seem the beach is better. I just didn't want to have to purchase the dance floor.

Well they are good but for the price, they are AMAZING. I got 75 custom printed lareg jute beach bags with a front flap and a closure for $208 with shipping! I used a site that I haven't heard others mention so I thought I would share the info in case any of you are looking...DiscountFavors.com. Let me know if you have any questions about the bags or the service. Eventually I'll get it together and post my planning thread so for those of you with some time left, you'll get to see the results.
Chong, darling we need to chat! What time is your cermony? Cocktail reception? Reception? And the locations? I just want to be sure we aren't stepping on each other's toes. For example I def want to take pictures on the pier before my reception (and before the sun goes down) but if you are getting married at the beach location right next to the pier I don't want to shoot photos while your ceremony is going on. I want all eyes on you! No distractions! Maybe we can chat about this and figure it out? Also, I am having a 70 person cocktail reception by the pool which (looking at the map) is close to the yoga platform. Maybe Jamie can chime in here and let us know how close. I am sure we'll work it all out but just better to have these convos now rather than later.
Amy, not sure if I thanked you for this but if not THANK you. This is so helpful!
