And yes, as my fiancee and I are both attorneys, I second mrsgoodrich, get EVERYTHING in writing, email is best. I can't tell you how valuable it was to be able to reforward an email (with a time and date stamp) where they gave me misinformation. In retrospect, the email threads are comical, but I noticed that I would ask a direct question, and Sandals would respond with a non answer. Example, I asked if there would be an ipod dock provided and Sandals said "they reccommend I bring my own." Which doesn't really answer my question as to whether they have them there or not. When pushed, they admitted they did, but I Had to ask directly three times. They are well trained there to promise as little as possible in writing, probably to avoid nightmare brides like me!

I appreciate all the info, I will be requesting everything in writing. My TA has gotten many answer from Amber, but I want it from her directly.
Regarding the tables, I was told that the centerpieces were $100 a piece, but its like paying for tables. 5centerpieces 5tables = $500.00. I will not be purchasing a MW package, we have beautiful beginnings, I will not be charged for extra tables. I totally agree the purpose of doing a DW is to save money. It makes no sense to charge $75.00 pp for food at an all inclusive resort. Well to save money I am bring my own decorations for wedding/reception and photographer. I trying to figure out my flower situation.
Ladies lets not get stressed, this is our day and we should enjoy planning. Stand your ground, Dont settle and be persistant. This forum is awesome! Lets stand strong and united, so we can have a cost efficient dream wedding.

I'm worried about the end cost, I'd like to know how much everything is up front so i can budget for it. We're trying to buy a house too so knowing how much we can spend on the wedding is a necessity... it's annoying with all the changes too- martha stewart and her collections don't appeal to me.
The "carefree" wedding isn't turning out to be so carefree.
