    You can bring them and they will set them up and not charge you for labor, it's all part of her job. They do all the setting at in the gazebo and such too.
    Not sure how they would hang them in the inlet though? I think that's why they use the stand up ones. Worth writing about and asking to see if/how past brides have done it though!

    There is an option for tiki torches, I *think* it was about $100 for a bundle of 10 or something like that.

          I have a question for current and past brides,

          I am planning to do welcome bags for my guests to be in their rooms when they arrive. One of my bridesmaids and I were going to come down a couple of days early to finalize the events for our guests, welcome bags and wedding day.

          But the costs jumped quite a bit (over 600) for us not to come with our group. Did any of you have your WC put the bags together? Was there an extra charge? Did it go smoothy?

          When we met with Yazmin during our site inspection she recomended a customs broker to insure our items didn't get caught up in customs...did any of you use a customs broker?

          I am totally overwhelmed by the travel aspect and the group contract. There are just so many people to coordinate and the costs are so high. Any advice

            We actually put together our bags before we left for Mexico and hand delivered them to whoever lived close. If they lived far or out of state I shipped them. This actually worked out really great. It amped my guests up for the trip. I was so happy I didn't have to lug them to Mexico too.

              Thanks so much for the idea Jackie! That may be a possibility. I will definately look into it...had never even crossed my mind!

                Hi ladies! just wondering what everyone is doing about a dj? im thinking about hiring DJ Mannia or DJ Doremixx...does anyone know what ASP policy is as far as having an outside dj? do i just hire them, pay for day passes for them and see what happens? do i tell/ask ASP thats what im doing?  i dont want to pay $1700 for 4 hours for a dj and sound system (thats what ASP charges) i think thats ridiculous...AND i dont even know if they are good...whereas i've read so many good things about Mannia and Doremixx...any suggestions?

                  I had lots of issues wit ASP and hiring an outside DJ. I added all the dteails a few pages back on this thread.

                   

                  ASP does not allow outside vendors and they are very strict with DJ's. I was going to hire DJ Doremixx and was ready to sign a contract, but my WC told me they would not allow it. After numerous emails and complaints they finally allowed me to hire him, but they wanted him to sign a $500,000 insurance policy with them, which he could not afford to do. He told me that ASP seems like they really dont want outside vendors and he was sorry he couldnt DJ my wedding.

                    So sorry that you are having so much difficulty with ASP and the DJ. Really doesn't make much sense to me. The $1700 they charge is way too much in my opinion!

                      $1700 is ridiculous! They dont even charge that out here, unless youre trying to hire a famous DJ or something. lol. My only complaint with ASP is the fact they give you a hard time with outside vendors, but yet they charge an arm, a leg and a few toes and fingers for their services.
