I want an accent of silver in the centerpieces and flowers, so thinking ahead of what I need to bring.
This thread is so quiet lately! Anyone have news? Maybe all the brides that were so active before got married and are gone (well most!)
there was virtually nothing there when i was there, and i left my stuff there - never to be seen again...i knew what i wanted, so i brought everything, but i also had the baggage room and family members to help me...i'm sure they have some stuff now, but i'd ask rebeca to be VERY specific - ask for pictures - so you know what is available.

I actually found out about him in the Cabo forum and saw all the rave reviews. He is originally from PV and currently lives in Cabo, but is still willing to DJ events in PV area. So far (knock on wood) he has been awesome to work with. Here is their link if anyone is interested and I will also include his services in my review after our wedding.
Also, we're going to pay for everything using a credit card. You might want to check with your credit card company because the conversion fees differ from card to card and let them know you will be making a large purchase out of the country to see if the conversion fee (%) can be waived or capped. (We did this with American Express)
Random question time....
So we are completely on the fence when it comes to having a videographer for our wedding...is it worth paying extra for the reception?
Past and Future Brides....are you or did you video tape the ceremony and the reception or just the ceremony? Did you use the videographer provided by Dreams (through the wedding package) or outside vendor? How did your video turn out?
Thanks so much as always!
i think that's a personal decision - will you ever watch it? dh and i knew we wouldn't, so it would have been a waste for us. we watched the ceremony video once, and that was enough for about 10 years. ours was the one that came in our package. it's ok - i wouldn't use the same guy if i had to pay for it, but idk if he's still there, if the quality of paid work would be different, etc.
my photographer, on the other hand - his pictures are worth more than any video i could have gotten. maybe if you have a fabulous photographer, it could help your decision...? good luck!
