      Ana told me that there would be no outside vendor fee for my photographer because they will only be there 3 hours. I am using Claudia for the wedding and Juan for a TTD a few days later. By purchasing the smaller time packages, neither require a food pass so Ana said I would not have to pay the vendor fee. I hope Gabby keeps Ana's word! I have it in writting so I hope she will!

        Oh then don't even worry! Gaby is going along with everything that Ana committed to - and that would make sense if they're only there for a few hours and not the whole day they won't charge you for the day pass fee.

          Where on-line did you find the maracas? Can you give me the website?

            I am getting married Oct 18 2010.  I just got the price quote from the DJ for the recpetion.  $1000 for 3 hours!! Did anyone else get this high of a price.  That's crazy no??  Has anyone used the IPOD docking station maybe a BOSE, how was the sound?? 

            And do they always charge extra for the Welcome dinner too??

              As for using them as a second photographer - I'd double check on that - most photographers have in their contracts that they have to be the only professional photographer at the wedding.
               


               

               

              Since our photog is staying at the resort with us, all that other stuff is included: rehearsal dinner, TTD, etc. So I really have no need for any other photography. I didn't think that it would work out for them to act as "second" photographer, so we will likely just not use the resort photogs at all.

                What made you choose to work with Deco Cancun?  Where are you having your reception?

                  Anyone happen to know who the new vendor for flowers is?

                  I contaced by e-mail Maya Diseno Florist (from a previous bride who posted their website) and i got an email back stating they were no longer the florist for dreams.

                  The examples of flowers Gabriela sent me for my package are not pretty or tropical at all =( and I want to see if i can contact the vendor to see what flowers will in season in January, and maybe get a better bouquet than in the pics she sent.

                   

                  Thanks!

                      That's about the same quote I got. DJ was $300/hour plus tax and the alternative was to rent a sound system which is $180/hour plus tax. Either way, seems kinda pricey but I don't think there's any other alternatives. Gaby said that the sound system is pretty much necessary for the ceremony if you want anyone to hear. I only have 30 people in my party so far and she recommended it for the ceremony. 

                       

                      As far as the welcome dinner / rehearsal dinner... I got the same response. Here's what she told me: We don’t make reservations for any of our restaurants and it is first come first serve, in order for you to have your group all together in one area of the restaurant, we will need to make a reservation and a set menu for you, or if you prefer no reservations will be done for your group and you can arrive at the time you want, but we can not guarantee that you will all be seating together in the same area, since we will have other guests there.

                       

                      All these extras are adding up!!
