    Or are those flat rates, no taxes. I'm trying to figure out some budget items for our trip and because Jacy is out till MOnday...no luck moving forward. I'd appreciate help from those who are already married :)

    14 days till I'm married here! Yeaaaaaaay! I can't wait to share pictures with you all. Wish me luck on the carribean staying calm :)
    I believe they were flat rate charges.

    when do you leave for Mexico? Yay!

      Hey Dee!
      So far 11 including us. Our invites went out this week so hopefully there will be more...I want to have a party!!!
      We went with the Ultimate package. The photo are the next big thing after the dress I agree! I was worried about that but like Ginalynl posted, I saw RoryS's neice's pics and they were good. I bought the "real simple" wedding planner 2009 and it has a whole page on what pics to ask for in sections. When the bride is getting ready, wedding party etc so I am going to photocopy that and give it to the Jacy and the pho-tog before so they know what pics I really want.
      I am so excited we will be there at the same time!!!

        Hey Janna,
        I havent seen the photos on here I keep getting to page 50 or so on the thread and lose my place, still working through them. I have seen the postcard snipit not any others, I am waiting to hear from Jacy about the Ultimate package and also this elusive wedding guide she sends. I dont have enough points yet to view it. or the flowers. I am currently trying to decide which STD invites I should do up and send out lol. I think we may get another 10 people coming. I think its great we are going to be there the same time. Are you guys staying on longer than the one week?

          Ha, I did it I spent all day going through these posts lol. Now I just have to wait to hear from Jacy regarding all my questions. Ok so I have seen a whole lot of PDF's on here that I cant open yet lol. I keep posting but its slow. Hopefully Jacy will send me one this week otherwise I will be begging a bride or too to mail me haha. I have seen the resort photographer and he's good but I just dont think 50 will cover it plus the TTD dress session. I am super excited that they leave you with bargaining room for the packages. I am not much of a bargainer but am going to try my best.

          Thanks to all you ladies who have worked so hard to keep us up to date with vendors, and online resources. I appreciate all your hard work.

            quick question. I am either going to make my STD cards or I am going to order them online. Where is a nice place online to order that anyone has used? Thanks.

              I'm not quite sure what kind of STD you are looking to have but have you checked out this section of the forum yet? There is tons of info!

                Thanks Ginalyn, ya i have looked there but am pricing out doing mine myself and ordering. And of course since I look in canada I have to do price conversion etc. Just seeing whether time/effort and material is going to save me a tonne vs store bought.

                  I want my reception in el patio as well. My understanding is you can only rent it if the resort is below 60% full. I'm hoping a month out, Jacy will know if it's possible.

                  I'm stessing about not knowing if I'll be inside or not. For ex, I'd have plum table clothes if we're outside and orange if inside... etc.

                    Free buffet area? I'm not familiar with this option. Tell me more?

                      MonicaC, Amazing pix. Thanks for sharing. I'm so thankful for all the pictures in the conference room. It looks like there is one wall with a lot of picture windows. Everything turned out beautiful. How did alcohol work? Did servers bring people drinks?
                      Also I saw a rope/lasso during the ceremony, tell me about that tradition and why you chose it. Thanks
