Just a couple of things to add...and a need to vent!
We are going to premake up our tip envelopes and then just not seal them. That way if we need to change the amount we can do so. Then I will give them to someone to hold onto at the reception like my father.
We are having our ceremony at the beach, cocktail at the X Lounge and reception at the Event Terrace (same this as the convention terrace). We love how private and beautiful that area was.
I have my dress but no fitting yet!
Now to my vent...urgh... been corresponding with the wedding cooridnator. Today she sent me back a confusing email. First she said that they only have round tables at the venue. Huh? Like every picture I have seen of weddings on the event terrace, almost all of the weddings have long rectangle tables? My whole vision goes with the long rectangle tables so not sure how they used them before and don't have any (or do we need to rent them?)
Second, Gustavo gave me the name of two companies to rent decor from. Gamanteles and Planner1 events. Looked at both for prices for things like tiffany chairs, dance floor, linens, lounge set etc. I assumed that since they gave me those names as companies they use, no vendor fee. Today she said that for Gamanteles (the cheaper quote) we need to pay a vendor fee. What?!? is it $150 per person or per the company? Cause if like 4 people come to set up decor that is a huge amount in vendor fees! If I use Planner1 Events is there a vendor fee? To avoid the vendor fee for things like decor rentals, do I have to order right with the wedding coordinator? So frustrated as just getting a response back takes like a week and then it gives you a lot more questions!!! Plus I already had everything ready to go with the decor companies! Can someone shed light on this?
