    For all the recent brides...did you use the resort flowers or an outside vendors? Which flowers did you like the best? I need to pick my flowers and I am using the resort. But I can't decide. :) Thanks!

      Did the resort send you pics of bouquets? They seem to have quite a variety. PM me if you need photos.

            I was hoping some of you that have recently gotten married could help me out with a question about paying the vendors?

            We still owe a final payment for our videographer and photog. However, they want cash. I asked if we could pay in USD traveler's checks, and they are nervous because their bank won't accept them unless the signatures match exactly. So I have to also provide a copy of my ID. I completely understand that they need to get paid, but it makes me a little nervous to be handing out copies of my ID too. It also makes me nervous to carry a bunch of cash around.

            The other thing I can do is pay the final payment via PayPal before we leave, but I'd rather give the final payment when they show up.

            What have you girls done? Any suggestions?

                Hi girls! I'm in the process of writing my review of my wedding at the Del Mar...I hope to have it up in the next week or so. In the meantime, I put together a condensed version of our professional pics from the wedding. I tried to include a little bit of everything so you can see different parts of the wedding, including hair, flowers, decorations, etc. We had the reception in the gazebo and had the cocktail hour on the terrace of the Tropical Restaurant and had the reception inside the Tropical Restaurant. Everything turned out amazing! Let me know if you have any questions! Stina168@aol.com

                  Kim-I know that when we originally sent Elizabeth Medina a cheque for our deposit she had troubles depositing it at the bank so she ended up shredding it and then we paid our deposit through PayPal. She told us that the banks down there are REALLY finicky (? invented spelling!) and that she often has troubles so that's probably why your photographer would prefer cash. We were lucky enough that Elizabeth allowed us to pay her by PayPal after our wedding.

                  If you photographer is well known and you trust that they will be there to photograph your wedding then I don't think I'd have a problem making the final payment ahead of time. That's just me though!

                    Stina - Awesome pics, thanks for sharing! You looked gorgeous, of course! Did you hire an outside florist or did the Iberostar people do it all? You arch turned out fantastic! I am still slightly peeved that they didn't decorate my arch fully, oh well though haha. Can't wait to read your review! :)

After assuring me del mar will be open by then. i'm so glad it all worked out for you, but this past mth has been aweful for us. and they do nothing but tell me it' not then it is..."i will get back with you" and never do. no respponses from e mail, i have called days in a row before i get anyone. who wants to show up with 36 guests and not even know where anything is being held. this shoul be a exciting time not torture
