    Dont forget, they have Costco and Walmart in Mx, i know everyone thinks walmart and goes oh no cheap, but if you play around at home and find ways of dressing them up( or go to a different store to buy them in mx, ) you will get them for a decent price ANd you dont have to tote them there!

    Just an idea! Im going to be buying some of my decorations there but it depends how much wedding planning you really wanna leave yourself to do before the big day!!

     

    Hope this helps a bit!

            For brides that want to stay in PV for a mini honeymoon - check out Verana!  It's kind of expensive... but we're only staying 4 nights and thought we'd splurdge :)

                  Hi NM2011

                  We are using an outside DJ, DJ Reventon. The woman's name is Staci and she has been excellent to work with so far. She gave me a big questionnaire to fill out which has every little detail and she will also be our MC for the evening. I got a few references from her and they all said great things. We are having her play from the ceremony at 4:30 all the way to 10:30pm. The cost to bring her in is $100, her food is $65 and her fee is $910 for 6 hours! I thought it was a great deal seeing as for 3 hours it costs $690 and this way I can trust all the music for the ceremony, grand entrance, first dance etc is well coordinated and flows properly. We have around 60 people attending and for us music and flow was really important so we wanted someone outside of the wedding party/guests to deal with all of that and keep the party going! We do plan on bringing our Ipod and making a playlist for the after party at Desires Lounge though.

                  Hope this helps.

                    Hi mllek1986 - that's a great idea!  Are you giving her a list of songs you want to play?  Or are you giving her a CD with all the music on it?

                      Hey past and previous brides - any thoughts on Oceana vs Sea Side beach?  We're currently booked at Sea Side... but I just saw this video of a wedding at Oceana that looks amazing.  I love the rocks in the background!  I'd love to hear what previous brides thought and what future brides are planning! 

                       

                      here's the video - it got me REALLY excited :-)
