I'm just getting aggravated that information keeps changing. Don't they keep emails on file or have a file for each weddinghuh.gif?
It is frustrating, I understand. Ramon is honoring several things we previously confirmed with Veronica. I forwarded all my email communication from Veronica for anything that was in question and have been politely firm that what we were told before is what we expected. So, if you have this communication with the previous WCs, I would use that approach. All of our planning, budgeting, etc. has been based on 8 months of emails so we're not backing down on that stuff. We're also putting together a spreadsheet with everything laid out to send him, to firm things up and hopefully make things easier when we meet with him upon our arrival.

@ Mich&Adam - we are sticking with the iPod. I looked into the DJ but they are booked for that day. I think it will work out okay. We are expecting 26, including us. So, a pretty good turnout I think. We are doing a TTD the day after the wedding with our wedding photographer, Sascha Gluck. As for the ceremony, Ramon sent me a pdf of what they use for the symbolic ceremony and we're not too crazy about it. We may just use the same one we that used for our legal ceremony here. If you need a guest book, or want something different, check out Welcome to the Guestbook Store! Guestbooks for Every Occasion!. We got ours a few weeks ago and it's exactly what I was looking for, just short of making it myself. :) We're doing a welcome dinner too, at Barcelona Thursday night (non-private). So, we're looking forward to that! :) I'm doing a hair trial run this week with my local salon, and have my first fitting next weekend. We are getting very excited, too!

I'm still debating the bouquet toss and garter thing. I've read about some other ideas for the bouquet toss - tossing a bunch of individual flowers with a charm attached so each of the ladies gets something. I am not big on all the traditional stuff (hence a destination wedding) but I don't want to look back and wish I'd done something that I didn't.

Ugg..sorry to vent, but yeah,I would be upset/annoyed too if everything kept changing now that Ramon is in charge..i kept ALL my emials too from Veronica and have kept firm my decions too...We were having 20 guests, but a few people have since cancelled their reservations due to different personal reasons, so with us, we are now down to 13 guests..which is fine..this is what WE want..although it is hard to stay happy & positive with things goingon around you...we picked up our rings this weekend and they are gorgeous...and my bachelorette dinner/party is this weekend, thank God for great friends!!!!

Do they provide a menu card/sheet for everyone at the wedding reception? I saw on this forum that Veronica did menu's for a welcome dinner. If yes, is there a charge for this?

 

Are the napkins white fabric? I assume this to be the case. It's just that our place settings are you to be personalised ribbons with the guests names on them tied around the napkin.

 

Do they provide vases for the bridesmaids flowers?

 

What things has Ramon said no to that Veronica said yes to?

 

Thanks.

The symbolic Vs. legal ceremony is the big question still. Is anyone having a legal ceremony? I want ot have a legal ceremony, just to save all the excitement for that moment. FI wants a symbolic ceremony just because it seems to be the easier option. Any thoughts?

We are having a legal ceremony. We don't see the the legal ceremony as being difficult at all. All you have to do is a blood test, be at the resort for 3 days before ceremony (not including weekends), and get your birth cert apostilled (we need to get this done in Slovakia and New Zealand and it's quite easy). A costs a little more though.

Congratulations to you!! That is so exciting. Thank you for the vendor tips. I am debating the DJ issue. We are worried that if our group is small, then a DJ would be overkill. However, I am not sure that I want to have to worry about controlling an ipod.

 

Will you be posting a review and perhaps some pictures when you return homehuh.gif

I keep trying to explain all of this to my fiance, but he is leaning more and more towards signing the paperwork at home first.

Your very welcome and if this helps, we were origninally going to go with the whole ipod docking station too, i even started making my song list, BUT i figured this IS my once and i lifetime and I don't want any of my guest to have to worry about the ipod...and what if someone wants to hear something, ya know what, let them request it with the DJ and HE can play it...we initially had 25 guests, then down to 22, and just had the final count due and we had more people cancel, their will be 14 of us, so yes a smaller wedding, but still worth the extra money and fun of the DJ...plus he does cold fireworks (?) bracelets, props, etc. etc. worth it for me and FI!!!

Yes, I will be posted a review and if you want to know more, sent me a private message, I would be happy to share all my thoughts from the wedding :) Thanks Again!!

P.S. we are doing the Legal Vows here in NJ before we leave, not worth the Mexico hassle for Us anyway :)
