What do you think the best tactic for negotiation is, do I write to Lily and say
"You gave Veronica the centerpieces for this price and I want them at the same price too" or should I send her a pic and see how much she quotes and then say "well I heard you gave them to her for $63" I am not good at negotiating. I really want the decocancun catalog!!!
Thanks! I actually just e-mailed the girl I was working with at Deco Cancun a picture of what I was looking for, a tall centerpiece with various shades of pink flowers in a glass vase, and asked her for a quote. I wasn't picky about which flowers to use because if you choose flowers like orchids, etc... the price goes up. I just wanted to get the 'look' of my inspiration pic. I found even for their small centerpieces Deco is a little cheaper than Moon Palace. Since they were already doing my lounge furniture they just added the centerpieces to the order.

NO. There are only two stairway entrances up to the terrace and they were roped off with a sign that said "Campos/Chilson Wedding Dinner" so no one went up there except for us.... although.. later on while we were dancing some random guy came up there and said he wanted to 'dance with the bride' and my husband just looked at him with a raised eyebrow and we didn't see him after that! LOL!!!

AIRFARE SALE

 

I received an email from TravelZoo this morning announcing an airfare sale. Here is the introduction (cut and pasted):

 

ATLANTA--MAY 11, 2010-- For three days, airfare from Atlanta

has dropped to $49-$99 each way for travel through August.

This saves up to $150 off regular prices on nationwide and

Mexico routes.

 

Travel is valid on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Click

the links below to easily see fares using Fly.com's Low Fare

Calendars.

 

Most of the flights on these three weekdays are $296-306 roundtrip for travel between May and August 2010. I don't know when the sale ends but here is the link for travel between Atlanta and Cancun:

Roundtrip fares to Cancun (CUN) from Atlanta (ATL)

 

I hope that this helps to get those wavering guests to commit to your summer nuptials! Travel Zoo listed other cities as well. So you may want to check out their website as well.

Thanks for the rooftop terrace info, Veronica! I'm getting married May 29th and am trying to switch my reception to the rooftop terrace. Not having a lot of luck waiving the fee...they claim it's stated in our group contract. Do you mind if I ask when you signed your group contract? I'm trying to pinpoint when the policy changed.

I signed my group contract in Februry of 2009 (we started planning over a year and a half before the wedding). We paid for the reception cost ($400 per table of 10) just not the extra fee to use the Caribbean Terrace.

Hi Vgirl, your pictures are just simply beautiful. Your dress is stunning. I absolutely love it. Who is it by? Your pictures were especially interesting to me as your husband's height compared to yours appears to be the same as my fiance and me. I am planning on having over 70 for my wedding. Which part of MP would you recommend? Your set up looked very well put together. Was that based on your input or the WC's? Did you have to get alot of extras for your decor?

How hot is in it in Mexico in July? People have been telling me the heat is unbearable. I'm worried now since I am having the ceremony and the reception outdoors. The ceremony does not start till 5 PM and the cocktail reception will be at around 6:30 PM by the beach. Should I move it indoors?

I am getting married at Moon Palace in April 2011. I am wondering what prices were for April 2010 travel packages from Canada? I am getting rates just over $2000 right now, and wondering if I should wait for them to come down a bit. The rates are a bit higher than I anticipated.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
