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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
