They told me that it was a safety issue, they don't want a guest to be on a ladder on fall and break something!
But for any decorations that you don't need a ladder for, you can do it yourself. I received this response in August of this year, so it was very recent.
If anyone has the 2011 copy of the wedding guide I would love to get a copy please, our wedding is March 28th and I would like to know ahead of time how much they are raising the prices!!
Hope this helps!
You should be locked in to the price from when you booked your wedding.

I've sent several emails to our coordinator and haven't really gotten a straight answer. I asked if we need to bring documents for our symbolic wedding since we'll be legally married already. This is my second marriage, so I'm not sure if they need my divorce docs or not...anyone know??
Also, after reading several posts on here, my FH and I are deciding whether or not to hire an outside DJ and photographer. Who did you use? How were they? How much did they cost? I don't want to make this more expensive than we budgeted for but I do want our guests to have a great time at the reception and also I want our pictures to be amazing!
I'm just getting a gut-feeling like DT is nickel and diming us for every single thing! $3 +tax +gratuity to deliver OOT bags? Really? Anyone have any money-saving tips they can share?
I'm just doing the symbolic ceremony and you will not need any divorce documents or anything since it is not legal in Mexico.
as for DJ, I just booked with DJ Bijan his pricing is great and he's handling the ceremony and reception. I'm using Jillian Mitchell who is actually based out of PV but I love her pictures and she's wanting to do more things in the RM area so she gave a great deal. As far as saving money on OOT bags, don't have the resort deliver them. I'm going to pass mine out to guests as they arrive to the resort, this way I don't have to deal with the extra fees and I can meet and greet everyone as they come in. Those guests that are flying down with us will get theirs in the airport, lol.
