That doesn't sound right. I have yoga palapa for my Welcome Party on Sat and I am expecting 75-90 people then I have Zavaz Plaza for my reception for the same amount.

I love the photos!!! The ones of you guys dancing...ah, looks like a blast!

I think i remember someone posting a little while back that they had planned to ask about the cost for the xmas lights at plaza zavaz...has anyone heard back about that yet?

 

we were told by our WC that it would cost  $100 to have xmas lights.

 

also we were told that the beach gazebo decor (to standard that i've seen some of you ladies also use - the draped shears and two flower bundles hanging) would be around $420. b/c we wanted a coloured shear. we were told that the cheaper option (the exotic decor option on the lomas site) that is $220 would only be in white shears and it wouldn't be draped, it would be wrapped around the poles like a candy cane.

 

just wanted to see if this info about the lights and the gazebo ceremony decor seems in line or not?

 

Thanks!! :)

Some of you might remember a few months ago I mentioned that the onsite team said I could offer my guests 2 menu options and they can select at the actual reception.  Well after many months of trying to get this confirmed through my WC, Iâ€m sad to confirm this is not true.  I was certain this is what the onsite WC told me, but there must have been a misunderstanding.  You can offer your guests multiple options as long as you give the resort total #s for each entrée in advance.  Sorry if I gave anyone out there a glimmer of hope.  I tried!!

Which lights did you bring?  The ones on the actual Zavaz structure?  How many did you need, and do you think it helped with lighting or was it more for ambiance?  I don't think you had the paper lanterns that a lot of people use.  Was the location "dressed up" enough without them?  :o)  Just trying to determine if I really want them or not.  Thanks!

My WC just said to let them know, but she never gave me a cost for them.  That stinks about the white sheers only being wrapped around the posts.  I don't want to pay all that extra money for colored sheers, but the draping in my opinion, looks better.  :(

Ok, good to know. I would be surprised if they let you choose on-site (I do corporate events for a living and it costs A LOT MORE to do that) but it's annoying none the less that the hotel wedding coordinator told you that. During our site visit, I got information that I can only HOPE is true from the coordinator giving us a tour (Claudia). For example, she said Grey Goose is served at all the bars and is included - does anyone know if that's true?? I don't see it in the event bar package but I've been bragging to my friends that we'll be drinking the good stuff while we're there. Hope I don't sound like a total lush but we all know that it's the little stuff that makes a difference sometimes :)


Back to the food...I wish the family style wasn't so much more expensive than the plated?! It looks so good. I like the BBQ deluxe menu but it's pretty basic...has anyone had that?

    • i was 100% happy with my cake! it was the most amazing cake and when i travel down again i will be requesting a smaller size cake than the one she made me for my 25th anniversary renewal.  I did everything by FB messanger and Paypal! she is on point with her cakes and running her business! I give her 5 Stars and then some! Thank you for making my day amazing!
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
