No, I don't know why but it worried me, it looks like it's lost! None of the links for my review work (in my signature or on page 1). I will contact the forum admin about that.

Well it sounds like many ladies have been quoted this, although it's the first I hear. I'm not surprised though, I mean, when you think of it, it's extra work for them. They spent a couple hours doing my special setup for free, that just doesn't really make sense (maybe if you are already paying a lot for the more expensive package and for private reception, etc, but not when you are using the free package). At least 2$ per chair isn't that bad, I know I would have been happy to pay that price to have my sashes put up. But yes, it's annoying to have these costs pop up unexpectedly, and especially that some people are quoted 2$ and others 3$. It would be great if they had a nice long Wedding Guide that included all this info.

Also,she said if I choose the dreams ultimate package, the white tulle on the gazebo is free, but if I bring colored tulle, then it's $60 for the setup. If I choose the free package, then I have to pay $150 for white tulle on the gazebo, because they don't provide that with the free package. That seems a little strange to me...they would just have a bare gazebo for your wedding unless you pay the $150 extra? Also, with the free package if you bring your own tulle, they will charge you $60 to set it up. Has anyone else who had the free package recently experienced this? Did you have to pay the $150 (if you didn't bring tulle) or $60 (if you did bring your own tulle) to have the gazebo decorated?
Well the basic set-up with the white tulle (the way they do it in the guide, with the tulle just wrapped around the poles) has always been free, I think with the free package they want you to pay if you have the more elaborate set-up (similar to what I had) as it takes longer to set-up (regardless of the color). I'm not sure, but I'm thinking maybe that's what they mean about the 60$ charge (even if you bring your own tulle).
