Thanks Alex.  That helps....  I'll try and wait patiently for more info from her.

I'm pretty sure she has tons of decorations.

 

As for the tables, I only really figured that out the day before as well. I had differnt numbers of people at different tables and really wanted the square tables - but they only really look right with 8 people. Some tables I had 6 people, others 7, others 8. We decided the day before to use both square and round tables - I thought this would look stupid but she put it together very well. My seating plan stayed the same in terms of names and table numbers, just the layout and types of tables changed the day before. So unless you have a really weird amount of people at your tables, I think it's safe to say you can go ahead and make your table numbers and you and Mayte can figure out how to organize it when you meet with her down there.

 

Hope that helps a bit...

I finally heard from Mayte late last night... But out of the 9 questions I sent her she only answered one... and it was the least important one ;(  I'm going to try responding with more detail and hope I get a faster response... I can't wait another 3 weeks... :(

I thought I wAs the only one. I haven't sent a lot of emails but now I'm two months out and getting no replies. I got one last night to Venus but like you she only responded to one question. I'm hoping you guys can answer some of my questions too. Does she have umbrella parasols to shade guests during the ceremony or should I buy some? Can I mail items directly to the restaurant? I've seen pictures of a sign that reads "leave your shoes here" ....does she have that or shall I buy it? I haven't heard back about my flowers yet :( I hate being a stresses out bride lol.

I know how frustrated you must be Laurenann.... it's very nerve wracking not getting an answer.  When is your wedding?

 

I haven't asked any of those questions so I'm not much help... BUT I am very curious to what she says about mailing items directly to the restaurant.  If you get an answer can you please post it here?

 

I also asked her a question about my flowers... I want a cascading orchid bouquet, and she quoted me $180 which I thought was pretty reasonable... but I've heard that orchids are sometimes hard to come by in the DR so I wanted to know if I should be looking at other possible designs... but no reply yet :(

Ladies, what are you doing for menu options? Are you choosing one of the options from the brochure, making your own menu or having everyone choose their own dish?

I really want to make my own menu... but when I asked Mayte about it she quoted me $60 per person...  but I've heard other brides say it was cheaper that way...  Maybe there was some type of miscommunication.

 

I have an email asking her if we can do ala carte but only offer a few dishes to choose from and then we pay for what everyone orders.  I think it will be better that way.  I know some guests will order an entree and 2 sides and some may only order 1 side and it will balance out better than paying a full $60 for everyone.  I'm still waiting to hear from Mayte on this.

 

I'm curious to hear what everyone else is doing.

I know this question has been asked a million times before but I don't know if we ever got a clear answer...

 

Who did we tip and approx how much/ percentage?? Do we tip Mayte and the DJ seperate?  videographer?  Pastor York?  Where do we stop tipping?
