So if I do OOT bags but I'm getting there after everyone else, how should I get the bags to my guests?
Maybe the staff can have them placed in their rooms at turn down service or when they clean the rooms the next day? I too will have a few ppl who are going up a day before me and I don't know how I'm going to do my OOT bags because I'm going to put them together in my room. Let me know what you decide to do!

I have noticed I get a lot faster of a response when I talk with Yazmin instead of Ana. Good Luck!
I sent mine via email also and it only took a couple of days to get a confirmation. Sorry your having so much trouble. sad.gif

I'm having my nephew who is 4 stand up in our wedding and I am having problems finding him linen pants and ivory linen shirt. Any suggestions? Also, Laura your pictures are gorgeous! I'm super happy I chose Claudia for my photographer now!
Congrats on the new house! Maybe try Old Navy for little boys linen clothes.

Question for you ladies. I want to order the maracas from Marishka designs but in an attempt to keep costs down I am thinking of only ordering 1 per guest. Does that sound reasonable or should maracas always come in pairs??

Are you planning on putting the maracas in an OOT bag or on the chairs/tables as favors?
I think if you were doing it as a favor you could do one per guest but if you're doing it in the OOT bag I think most people would be like "where's the other one?"

I'm putting mine on the chairs along with a raffia fan and program so hands would be kinda full.

might be too big, but here is old navy Women's & Men's Clothes: Plus Size, Maternity, Baby & Kid's Clothing | Old Navy

I was there a few weeks ago and found a khaki colored guayabera with calaveras (skulls) embroidered in the same color. I don't see them online though.

I think one per guest would be fine. From the pictures I've seen, they look pretty big and people will love them!

Hey ladies! It has been quite some time since I have been on here. I tried to take a break from all the details and crazy wedding planning the last couple of weeks. The final payment from the guests was due last Friday so things got a bit hectic! The good news is, we received a free room!! We actually received 12 free nights (it was an average from what was booked because people are coming for different lengths of time). We ended up taking 7 of the nights for us, and then received a check for the 5 additional nights that we divided up for our wedding party... (which ended up being about $250 a person, not much but was nice for them to get some $$$ back).

 

I know some of you said you did not receive the promotion because you were a wedding .... I am not sure why we received the promotion, but we went with Apple Vacations and they actually own Dreams...huh.gif If any of you have not picked a travel agent yet, I would suggest contacting Apple and finding an agent to see if you can get this promotion, it is still advertised on their website!
