    Tulumbride2013:

     

    When I first got this information it all seemed clear to me. I don't know what I was thinking.

    I did a quick search online and I believe this is what Natalia and maybe even Anabel meant:

     

    Diameter: 1.8m (approx. 5.9ft)

    Width (maybe thickness of the table top?): 3.6 cm  (approx. 1.4in) - I'm not sure why this dimension would be useful.

    Height: 80cm   (approx. 2.6ft)

     

    These seem to be reasonable for 8 - 10 people.

     

    I hope this helps!

      Tulumbride2013 and BeaBride,

       

      Thanks!

      Are you guys getting a DJ that will be setting up the lighting and audio by himself? I'm just curious how you guys are working this out.

      I would agree...if the there is only one DJ (i.e. only one vendor) it should only be one vendor fee or a day pass.

      Have you read anything suggesting otherwise?

        At first they told me 1.8 as well, and FH assumed she meant to say meters. But I emailed her again to clarify, and she told me 3.6cm.... But centimeters... Again! Sigh... I think about six foot sounds right. Isn't a language barrier fun?!:D

          April2012- Congratulations on your wedding! Your question is a good one, I didn't think to even ask about that. We hired a DJ and a florist and we were charged one external vendor fee for the DJ which was $120. As for the florist, we are having the florist drop off the flower arrangements and vases and we are going to set them up so we weren't charged for another external vendor fee. Hopefully someone else will know for sure if they charge you per person.

          Hi Ladies!!

           

          I haven't really been following the round table discussion but I do know that according to Natalia, the round tables are able to seat 6-10 people.  I just emailed her yesterday to ask her about this as I am about to purchase the last few decor items for the reception.  I also was able to finalize our seating chart for the reception.  

           

          APRIL 2013:

           

          The DJ is coming alone and setting up his own audio equipment.  He will be doing the sound for our ceremony as well as for the reception. He has lights available that he could set up but we didn't opt for that.  We have DJ Bijan from Mayanvibes and found him after researching online and on this forum.  HIs reviews by the brides on here were good, plus he's actually a Canadian living in Mexico which worked out really well because I was able to email transfer him our deposit in Canadian dollars.  The remaining balance will be paid in Mexico in USD. 

           

          As for the the vendor fee.....

          A few months ago I was reading a bride's review on her florist because I was thinking about hiring an outside florist.  She paid two vendors fees for her florist because her assistant went with her to set up.  In hindsight, the bride would not have paid for the assistant to come as she felt the florist was easily able to set everything up on her own.  Other brides on this forum have just had their outside florist drop off the stuff and the wedding team at Dreams did the setup.  As for myself, we chose not to hire a florist to save on cost as we currently have a party of 62 people.  We are bringing the majority of our church and reception decorations with us.

            We got DJ Doremixx... He hasn't been exactly clar but I think he will be setting the things up by himself. I don't see the company using man hours for two mc s when only one guy will be actually DJ ing. I think the resort should be a bit more organized as too all of their info. Seems crazy that they send the planning forms out two months before the wedding. DJ s, florists, photographers, and a ton of other things need to be accounted for well before two months out!

              We are going to have our reception at the pool.  I thought that there was a half day pass you could get for outside vendor.  Also, DJ Doremixx said I would only be 1 person.  I haven't heard of this 3 hour music thing??!!  I do remember seeing something that mentioned that music had to end by 10:30 which seems kind of lame.  I DO agree with you ladies about the prices to set things up it just ABSURD!!  I am having a hard time deciding what to bring and what to just do without.  Since we went with the DJ we are going cheaper on flowers because the scenery is there-  Also, there isn't much we can do with the flowers afterwards.  I am worried about decorations, chair sashes, and flowers for bouquets.

                I don't think I am purchasing extra flowers, the prices are really high. Im bringing chair sashes but then again I only have 25 ppl. I might end up sending them with my moh or something. Also bringing three centerpieces,fans for chairs a ton of starfish, and my oot bags. I'm making my stepdad set the chairs up to save money, but then agin we have a super small wedding.As far as bouquets I'm making a seashell one for my moh, seems easy and affordable, and it lasts forever! So I booked DJ doremixx, bride81, did you get any kind of receipt for your deposit?. He said he would let me know when he had it picked up, that was over a week ago. I've sent 3 emails and no response, but western union says he picked it up. Seems sketchy, but he has a ton of great reviews.

                  I am also bringing my own chair sashes and wanted to avoid the extra costs of having the resort tie them on the chairs.  Have they told you how early you will be able to access the chairs for set up?  I am curious how that works if they have other weddings the same day.

                    Texasmandy, She has not told me how long ahead of time we can set the chairs up. She just said that someone from my wedding party can do it. If they have other weddings that day, and they feel as though it would look unprofessional or if we would take to long setting them up, they can do it but I'm not paying for it. I'm bringing all of these emails with me as proof of the promises that we're made to me. Sorry ladies, I've been a bridezilla! Especially after seeing all of these extra set up charges..
