    I adore the sandals very stylish and classy.  I wish I can wear sandals too but with my frame, I would look too short and stumpy lol.

      Just a thought, can you find some outside cigar roller and bring them in and pay the day pass, that's probably cheaper than paying 300 for a 10 cigars.  You can also stroll down to the beach and get a pack of 10 cigars for 30 dollars.

      I really wanted to do both the cigar roller and the fire dancers.  i thought it would be a nice thing for my guests but at these prices i'm not going to do both and $300 for 10 cigars is crazy to me!

        Lily,

         

        I believe the outside vendor fee is like 55 or 65, I forgot.  I find that it's not just the resort that is inconsistent with their pricings it's the outside vendors too.  I was getting a quote from Deco Cancun and they are quoting me so high compared to one of the past bride from here.  I wrote to them and they said b/c the person that was there before made a mistake and she is no longer with them now.  In general, I believe the whole country does not have a set price, they can set whatever price they want and it is damn frustrating.

I honestly just don't understand why they don't have a set price list, like black & white, this is the way it is and these are the prices...frustrating to say the least.

         

        Does anyone know what the current outside vendor fee is now?? I know its been discussed several times, but they're so back and forth, who knows. I think I recall being excited since it dropped from $500 to...$50? Am I making this up? I can't remember...

No biggie though and I'm sure it will all work out well! I'll let you know all of the details after the wedding!

            Yes- very frustrating. Its bad enough that they hardly reply and ignore direct questions but its even more frustrating that everyone is getting a different answer.
            No wonder everyone says to keep your emails as back up for when you get down there!

              I was getting quotes from Deco Cancun too but it seems to be a pain!  All I want is somebody to drape fabric on the Gazebo..maybe I can buy my own fabric and have somebody hang it..?  I don't like it when they put the flowers on it..

                  I've read on here a bunch of times, people bringing their own fabric to the resort for the Gazebo.  and i also remember reading that they werent charged for it either.  Hope this helps. :)

                    I am purchasing the gazebo fabric from ebay.  They have some nice satin fabric on there that is really cheap.  I think I am going to cancel my whole deal with Deco.  The only reason I was using there are for the lanterns but since the resort offers them, there is no need for them.

                      I agree! I still haven't decided if I'll use the gazebo or the beach but I was going to bring in Deco or EW for those nice lanterns and maybe some comfy benches for the reception on the pool deck - but I can live without the benches if the resort offers the lanterns.
                      I had no idea they offered the lanters!! It doesn't say anything about it in the brochure! But now I'm a bit worried if they'll have my colors or not
