            I tipped her at the initial meeting as soon as I got there. I joked around with her and I negotiated EVERYTHING to the tea. I even asked her if I paid for everything in cash would I get a discount? lol

            She gave me 30% off the DJ and dancefloor together and then she cut my price again for the extra timing that I wanted at the end of the reception. She was super nice, I think being nice to her and joking and tipping really pays off. She did mention that alot of brides email her like 6-9 times a day and she gets overloaded with emails, I told her I would tell everyone to cut it down to two and she just laughed. Seriously, everything can get done there in like 30 minutes. She recommended alot of things to add to the wedding but within my budget, little things that would make it look pretty without the cost. I ended up paying less than 6000.00 for the entire wedding, including DJ, dance floor, 36 people, extra extended hour, hair, makeup, massages on the beach, list goes on.... Like I said I have the entire breakdown if anyone needs it...

              THERE IS NO SWINE FLU down there and everyone down there laughs about it. The girls dresses were bought at the Outlet for under $30.00, and their silver shoes were from Michael Antonio, under $30.00. My shoes are Christian Louboutin those were $400.00, I know I splurged. Those will be sold on ebay soon.

              For your flowers, why dont you do white flowers and add hot pink fillers to them?? and a hot pink satin bow. Its really not difficult, you just buy a bunch of flowers, put them together tie them up with some green tape they sell at Michaels and then wrap them up with satin ribbon.

              I was also thinking of being creative and having them carry white wooden letters but I had to many girls to do that. I DO!! and just decorate the letters with ribbons. Would look so cute in pictures

                  We also estimated about 15,000.00 max and we did 6000.00 plus the photographer. So it was a little over 10,000.00 all together including the tips for the DJ, photographer, and WC
