          Hi Ladies!
          Okay, so now is almost my one month mark, so I apologize in advance for starting to become annoying, and for asking questions that I should know the answers to and or where to locate them:) sorry sunbride!!

          But, can you tell me again how to pay for the wedding when we get there and or any additional services that we will purchase? Credit card? check? cashiers check? I recall that some of you mentioned the exchange rate, etc. For those of you who were just there, or anyone, if you could let me know that would be great!!

          Also, I confirmed $5 a bow...that was the price in the 2008-2009 wedding guide I believe.

          Also, how did you pay d.j. mannia? and what is an appropriate tip for him?

          Thanks!!!
          Lonna

            I know it can be hard to find the info on page 1 as there is so much, here is what I had written there but somebody else can chip in if they have any other info:

            ---

            (11) PAYMENT

            Cash, credit card or travelers checks accepted. For credit card payments, your card will be charged in Mexican pesos (i.e. the prices listed in the wedding guide will be converted to Mexican pesos and will be charged to your card this way, your credit card company will charge you a small fee to convert it to your local currency).

            ----

            If you pay cash or travellers cheques, you'll pay in american dollars. This MAY work out to your advantage depending on the exchange rate they use (since converting it twice, once to pesos by them, and then back to american dollars for your credit card, you can loose a few percent with each transaction). Seeing as we don't know the exact exchange rate, it's hard to say. Normally you loose 2% with each transaction (exchanging cash at the bank or charging foreign purchases to your credit card) which would mean 4% but if they are using a poor exchange rate it could end up being like 10%. Anyways, it's really not that big of a deal. I would say pay with whatever you feel most comfortable using.

                Lonna-you can pay mannia by cash or travelers checks. We used our credit card to pay for everything at the resort (Amex). They charge you in pesos and your bank will convert it.

                  Hi everyone!

                  I have yet another question about bows!

                  For those who purchased the bows, did you use the same ones for the chairs at the ceremony and than had them placed on the chairs at the reception, or did you buy two sets for all the chairs?

                  Thanks!

                    I'm 99% sure that some past brides have mentioned that their bows were moved from cermeony to reception, because in fact they just move the chairs with the covers and bows on them over to the dinner venue.
