Congrats Allyson!

 

Kim, that's quite the list of florists! It'll be great to have that in case we want to buy any extras.

 

Thanks Lauren. I feel a little weird contacting Kristin at Dazzling to get DJ contact info since I'm not using her as a wedding planner - any thoughts?

 

Oh, & I found out about having the lounges for cocktails. Rebeca said they can set up 2 full living rooms for $350 in case anyone's interested. (like in post 594)

Wow, I have been gone for a week and there were over 30 new posts to catch up on! Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and got some time to relax before all of our big days!!! =D

I'll be replying to several of these posts in the next few minutes...

Regarding the tiffany chairs; I was told back in the beginning of the year the cost was $6 each. Love how their prices keep changing. Even at $6 though with over 70 people that adds up for something that no one will remeber as y'all said. Other than my FI who totally wants them... I swear I think he wants to be the bride and plan all the decor and spend way over budget!!

And I think Rebeca said that for the centerpieces, the $55 is just for the flowers unless the candles are incorporate with the centerpiece, she sent me some pics where they were. But I could totally be wrong. I know she did quote me $80 for tealights around the pool, which to me is TOTALLY silly since I can buy 100 for $5 at Ikea. But I think I am going to suck it up for the $55 for the centerpieces since I don't see myself lugging stuff down there for the centerpieces and then wanting to lug it back.

Jill can't wait to see the pics of your welcome bags!! My fiance wants to wait to make them until we are down there so we don't have to carry all the stuff down there which is totally making me panic but I am going to see how I feel closer to the wedding!

Hey Jessica,

For our OOT bags we have bought half the stuff here and will go into town prior to our families arriving and buy local goodies as well. To make it easier to pack, we aren't going to assemble the bags until we are at Dreams. My mom is going to divvy up the items that will go in each male/female bag. She will then place all the small items per bag in zip lock bags to pack on the plane. Once we arrive at Dreams will will spend a few hours unloading the zip locks into each bag and adding the larger contents as well. Shouldn't take too long or be too much of a hassel plus it will be much easier to pack for the plane ride down. Good luck on this!

I'll start a new thread and get one ordered with a cute little log book. Any takers?

Great idea! Let me know what I can do to help with this. =)

Thanks Ladies for the good thoughts. We sent out invites to a lot of people to be nice but never expected so many would be able to come to an October wedding in Mexico. While I'm glad that they are making this effort for us, I just wish they would have responded 6 months ago with the STD. I guess that was too early for some people to make the decision. Looks like we'll be over budget and I am now reconsidering the cocktail hour. I wonder how necessary that will be or if we can just go directly to dinner- can't we get drinks at dinner? The cocktail hour will add more than $1400.

 

 

Hey Kimber,

 

We took the Free Package which does not include the cocktail hour. It is a good idea to have during picture time but our budget just didn't allow for it. Most of our family members will likely be with us during picture time and our friends are easy going enough to wander to the bar and get free drinks there. We only have like 45 minutes between the wedding and the start of the reception so shouldn't be too bad. And yes, drinks are inlcuded at dinner!

Hi Autumn,

I don't have enough points to open the Dreams 09 attachment. Would you mind sending it to me at email address removed? Also, if you have the 2009 price sheet I'd love to see that as well. Thanks a million!

Jess, I LOVE your bachelorette pic! It looks like you had soo much fun!
Hey Jess,

I don't have enough points to open your attachment, don't have time to get enough I suppose! Could you please send me the contract template to my email at email address removed?

Thanks!!!
