Well I started off saying I wanted the Coral, but it's out of our price range...so she offered 15 % off of the Carribean package. I asked her what she could take off of the package price of Coral if we excluded things such as: (examples)
-Romantic dinner in the a la cart restaurant for the couple
-1 bottle of domestic champagne and a basket of fruit deliver to the coupleâ€™s room
-Room decoration with flowers
-Makeup and Hair for the bride (My hairdresser is coming to do mine, and I'm a makeup artist )
Ana responded back to me saying that some of those things don't actually cost anything, but because I do not have a lot of money for the wedding she knocked $150 off the package...$1900 to $1750.
$150 is $150 right?
I would just start your email about how over budget you 2 are and how anything would help. She seems nice and willing to work with you.
I hope that helps and I hope you save some money!! Goodluck!
By the way, your wedding website is adorable! Check out ours!
Ah brilliant, thank you so much for that...she's just got back to me with details of flowers and meals etc so I think I will start the negotiating with the sob story (which I hate doing, but nevertheless is true) and ask her what we can take out to make it cheaper...such as those things you've said - we wouldn't mind not having them if it made it cheaper, and hey $150 is $150!
But OMG you're a make up artist!!!! Are you there on the 7th?? Maybe you could do mine?! lol haha you can earn some money while you're there!!! I'm so worried they're not going to be what I want and I'm not a make-up person at all so I'd be screwed if I didn't like how they did it and I had to try and do it myself! but hey....that's another thing to add to my list of things to worry about!! lol
So...we've just been sent the info of things we have to choose from, but I'm already confused! think I'm going to have a long email to send back to Ana!! I can't work out what's included in the package and what we are paying additional for!
and OMG your website is so lovely your proposal was soooo sweet! we'll have to sort out a drink at the resort inbetween our weddings!
