    Does anyone have any idea how much to tip the wedding coordinator?? Do we tip her in pesos??

    And, do we tip the photog (I'm using Claudia Rodriguez) and the DJ (also not from the resort).

      Grand Bride - Great question about tips. I was wondering the same. I'm also having Claudia for photos (5 hour package).

        I found a forum on here for tipping:
        http://bestdestinati....-brides-53811/

        It seems most of the brides were tipping betweeen $100 and $500 depending on the service they received. Some are giving actual gifts but others said the WCs probably preferred money in American dollars too - because they get a good exchange rate in town.

          Thanks for the brownies idea. I'm looking into that at this very moment. I love the idea of having something local and delicious. I am also considering Mexican painted tiles as favors, but they may be a pain to get down there (and I'm a little apprehensive about holding off until we get down there to buy them). We figure the tiles would be a nice momento and they can be used as a decoration in the guests' homes or perhaps even as a potholder.

              Hi Girls!! So I've been so busy with a new semester starting (I'm a teacher) that I haven't had time to get on here =(

              Shannon - Your invites are amazing!! What a good feeling to have those done already!!

              Emmers - I like the painted tiles idea, that sounds fun! I agree though that it might be a pain to get them.

              Just wanted to let you all know that I booked my DJ!! We decided to go with DJ Doremixx. Shannon I actually read your review on another thread and decided that he was better than DJ Bob. We were debating between the two, but I like that DJ Doremixx (Ivan Gomez) is not only cheaper, but you get more from him.

              Anyhow, hope everyones planning is going great!! Less than 5 months =)

                Leah, That's great about the DJ. The response time and everything was very simple, fast and professional. I liked Ivan a lot. I just did the Western Union deposit of half =)

                So far so good, 29 RSVP's back 20 = Yes and 9 =No. But we have 51 booked, so we are getting there =)

                Only 1 RSVP wasn't booked, so that was a number we didn't have =) It's my college girlfriend but she wasn't saying anything and I didn't want to press.

                How's the semister so far.

                  That's awesome you have so many people booked!! We currently have 24 I think, which I am so excited about!! I can't wait to see the response once we send out invites!!

                  The semester is going well, but very busy this first week. I have the excitement of our wedding to make it go by fast!

                    That will definitely help. 24 is great! And people will surprise you once those invites go out =)

                    Happy Friday at least!

                      LDeeken- When are you planning on sending out your invites? I am just curious, since our weddings are so close together. I think we have about 20 booked so far, so I am about even with you. I only estimated about 35 people, so I am happy with 20 at 5 months to go!
                      I am also a teacher, so I completely understand how you feel. The semester should fly by with all the excitement though!

                      Finley- I love your invites. 51 booked that is amazing! Is your wedding shower coming up soon?

                      Planning updates:
                      We actually ended up going with D.J. Bob. I heard from a previous Iberostar Bride that he made her wedding.
                      I think I am having passport invites made by a lady who makes them out of her home. I should probably make my decision soon!
