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!

I have to agree with everyone else that this is an AMAZING deal!!! I saw you just posted that you booked for a bit more per person. Maybe you need to show your FI other comparable resort and the prices they're offering. It just takes getting a bit more involved in this process to realize what a steal you're getting.

Are people able to decide at the dinner or are you putting the options on your invites???

So definitely make sure you get this in writing! One reason we went with a Set Menu instead of giving our guests a choice of two entrees is because we were told they needed the head count of who was eating which entree two weeks before the wedding.

She's great to work with and is giving me a wonderful price. I am happy to recommend her once she's finished my projects.
As you know I am going for an "antique'd romance" theme with antique picture frames and hummingbirds. Attached is the dinner menu she designed for me. It will be printed on ivory shimmer cardstock. I am so excited.
