    Would you mind posting the centerpiece pictures she send you? I've been curious what they look like...and whether or not I'm going to have to come up with something by myself.

    Thank you!

      Question for all of you ladies....how long did it take for you to get an initial response back from a wedding consultant? I sent an email almost 2 weeks ago trying to get information around what dates are available....and haven't heard anything back yet

      Thanks!
      Nicole

        here is what I got from Ana, I thought there is stuff to work here with

        I am doing rose pomanders on the inside chairs for the ceremony and thought of literarly flippin them to use in addition as table decoration and for a low vase Ana quoted me USD 5 to rent

          have you guys told her the packages you want? flowers you want? decor you want? etc? i cant even get her to open my emails to see those things!
          No I haven't told her any of that... but I bet Laura would have a better answer about when she will/or did tell them all of those details :)

            I'm wondering the same thing.. I was thinking about getting fake centerpiece flowers but using real ones from the resort for bouquets. So if anybody knows the situation on renting vases - let us know!

                I am pretty sure (again not real sure b/c she doesn't answer me) that we can send her what we want (NOT on these options) and they can do them... it will just cost more... correct??

                  This whole process has been frustrating for me as well! I understand that Ana must be incredibly busy but...Anyway, I was never asked which package I wanted, what flowers I wanted, etc. I just sent her emails with that information and she would send one back like "Okay, so you want the Ultimate Package". As far as flowers, I asked for the pictures of flowers that were included in the package and she sent me the information and then I got back to her with which one I wanted. I think that if you want something different, you can email her a picture, and then she will give you a price. For example, for my bridesmaids, I just want orange roses so I sent her an email telling her that and she sent one back saying that they are $60 each. That was just this week too! I still haven't told her anything about boutinierres (sp?) or little details like that. I just gave her all of my menu choices about a month or so ago. As far as decor, I never really got anything besides what is on the price list on the website. I didn't really ask a lot of questions about this though because we are bringing our own centerpieces and I am bringing chair sashes. I am not planning on going all out for decorations because I am already spending wayyyyy too much money :) So, I think the bottom line is that you just have to email her what you want as soon as you figure it out. And you probably won't be getting prompts from Ana to make decisions. We will get to Mexico on Monday and then we are meeting with Ana on Tuesday. I think that we will probably go over all of the details and finalize everything. So, hopefully it all works out. I just keep thinking...we will be at a beautiful resort with all of our friends and family and the beach and ocean as our backdrop...it will be beautiful :)

                    Correct! If you send her a picture, she will give you a price.
