The cost for DJ equipment wasn't included in our contract, but I believe Luis originally quoted us $800 for the evening. Hope this helps and hope you get your contract soon. I would be going crazy at this point.

Well, I'm just going with the flow. Eventually I'm sure he will send me everything! I did email him today and remind him the wedding was 5 weeks away and I haven't paid a deposit, etc.

 

Did you guys get your contract worked out?

We received the contract, but it had tons of errors in it. Things Luis told us were included appeared with a charge. We had to go through it line by line and make corrections which our travel agent presented to him today. We will see how it goes.

 

How many guests are attending your wedding? I was wondering what kind of rates he quoted to you in person. With the resort not having a set of wedding packages it is difficult to determine what we should or shouldn't be getting.

We're going to bring our own dj (a close friend), but rent the equipment there. The estimate we got from Luis on just renting the equipment was $500...

We got everything on Thursday and Friday. There were a good bit of errors, but Luis was VERY quick to update the documents several times and send them right back.

 

The quotes price wise were pretty good as compared to my last resort. We didn't find any surprises. Our DJ equipment is $700, but we have a lot of equipment, our DJ spins at a bar at the W Hotel in Atlanta so he is fairly high tech.

 

Let me know what you guys need to know. We have 24 guests coming.

I just came across this forum and decided to put in my two cents. My husband and I got married here on November 12, 2009 and had the wedding of our dreams! Of course, the road to the perfect wedding was pretty bumpy because the wedding coordinator we were originally working with stopped working there about four months before the wedding. In the end everything came together and was beautiful. I will post more later tonight including some pictures if anyone is interesed.

Hi ladies,

I am really interested in any information you all can provide about weddings at HTR. When I was looking at resorts a few months ago, I really loved this one but thought that it might be too expensive...it was hard to figure out the costs since there weren't any set packages and the documents that Luis sent me were rather confusing!

 

Anyway...I ended up putting a deposit down at the Royal in PDC which is a great resort but their wedding department has been pretty shady with price and policy changes without notice or explanation. FI and I are just not getting a good feeling about having our wedding with them anymore.

 

Long story short, I found this thread and between what I've read here and Ash's great pictures...I am very seriously considering switching to HTR if we can make it work.

I emailed Luis again but haven't heard back so any insight you ladies can provide about how your events were set up etc would be GREAT.

 

Sorry for the essay here but I'm sure you all can relate to how crazy planning a DW can feel!!!

 

-Becky

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
