      Ryan's girl - Hehe thanks! I'm feeling good but burnt out for sure! I think/hope everything is in order. All of the important stuff is in order as far as I know and I have re-confirmed everything with my wc and my photographer. Everything else is up to me I guess. I still haven't decided on a hairdo and that's worrying me. :/

      How's everything coming along on your end? It'll be your day in no time!

              Please give us some tips when you get back. I can't wait to hear about your wedding. What made you decide to bring in outside florists? Did you hear they don't do good job? Do you know if they decor cake table...sign in..etc

              Thanks for your help.

              I have to check out DJ too. Thanks. Did you here does he play good dance music or should we still bring ipod/cd
              I for surely will let ya'll know how the wedding went when I get back! It's coming up quick - WOW!

              I decided on outside everything to be honest with you such as: photagraphy, makeup/hair stylist, florist, and now I think I am gonna do that DJ bob!

              Basically, I am extremely picky and I seen the iberostar's flower book that they let you pick from (well almost 50% of it at least) AND I didn't like anything...AND they couldn't get the flowers I wanted (orchids)... AND THEY WERE CHARGING ME MORE THAN DOUBLE what my florist is charging me (and he's giving me way way way more flowers)... AND I wanted alot of flowers and decorations that they just couldn't accomodate because they only have 6 VASES. So that's it in a nut shell! Told ya I am picky!

              Yep, they (iberostar) can definetly decorate anything you want cake table, sign in table, with flowers etc... but remember they don't have that many vases so ideas are limited along with their flower selection I think it's like roses, stargazers, lillies, daises and some orchids (but they are $5 a stem)!

              Good Advice: ALWAYS ALWAYS ask gabriela/reyna everything 2 times they love to say 'yes' the first time and than when you ask them again to put something in writting their answers always change (or maybe that's just my unfortunate luck)!

              I emailed that DJ bob and he sent me a reply saying this:

              "Hi Danielle
              First of all Congratulations.
              I would love to DJ/MC your wedding. I already am booked for 11 weddings that month and fortunately I still have your date available at this time. Let me tell you a little about myself and try to answer all your questions.I moved down here to the Mexican Riviera Maya 8 years ago from New Jersey so I do speak English. We'll some people would dispute that. My web site is weddingdjrivieramaya.com. I am a professional DJ/MC and have performed for over 450 shows and weddings. I have a wide range of music. 4000 of the most played/danced wedding songs including everything you listed. I am also able to down load a song should you request something I do not have in my library prior to the reception. I have worked at one of the Iberostars before I believe.My fee for four hours of music, (no breaks, includes everything, my equipment, lighting, mic's too) is $475 US. Very reasonable price hey?If you are interested all you need to do in order to lock in your reception date is make a $100 US deposit into my Pay Pal account at boradem@netscape.net. Also make sure the hotel knows you are bringing in an outside vendor and don't be afraid to dispute any outrageous charge they might try to add. Please let me know if you have any other questions. My US satellite # is 732-812-4521.Looking forward to hearing from you.
              DJ Bob"

              So I am gonna see if he can do $450 like he is doing for the other wedding on here and go from there... My TA has an email into gabriela to see if there are any charges for using an outside dj besides a possible daypass thing. I can let you know what she says if you like?!?

If you want, you can email him at boradem@aim.com

                    They told me it would just be $50 for the guest pass fee. The outside photographer fee is $300.

                      OMG- thank you my e mail is gar0831@hotmail.com. You have been such a help. I am seeing that now, stories are changing with the WC. I am picky to and I am not into bright oranges...I never looked into a outside florist because I nthought it would be so expensive. If you don't mind can you also send me florist info and adv prices. Do you have any pics of what they have avail, pics of yours- thanks again. Going to email DJ

                      Do you have to pay to bring in florist... I have to pay 300 for photo- who is doing yours? I am going with Sol's assoc diego I think
