Does anyone have a list of the "wedding signs" that Mayte has?  I see a few of the same signs in different pictures, but not sure if I have to buy any of my own.  Looking to save some money!  Thank you!

I would save your money... most of the signs that you see are one's that Mayte has. We had several signs at our wedding and I didn't even have to ask for them. She just knew where to put them and made everything look magical! Don't sweat the small stuff V, focus on the bigger things like food, drinks, your dress/hair/make-up, etc. Mayte is a pro so your décor will be beyond anything you thought possible. You'll want to Pintrest your own wedding by the time she is through ;)

Hey All,

 

I wanted to let you all know that since Mayte's return she has been leaving the weddings a little earlier in order to maintain her health and stay rested. She generally leaves after your reception is well under way and I can guarantee that she will never leave you hanging or wanting for anything before she leaves. With that said it occurred to me that most of you will want to give her some sort of gratuity that is just for her however, that will not happen if you do not give it to her directly because others will pocket the money. So for those of you who do want to give her a little something for the zillion hours that she has put into all of our special days, I strongly recommend that you give it to her at your pre-meeting in a sealed envelope addressed to her.

 

I gave her something extra at the end of our wedding in a sealed envelope addressed to her but now that I know she is trying so hard to stay healthy and cannot work the 18 hour days she used to, I thought it very important to make sure I share this info with you so that she can be appreciated the way she deserves to be.

 

Warmest wishes to all of you!

Hello!

 

Can someone explain to me how the preset menus work? I was looking to do Menu l and it says caeser salad and chicken bruschette then the main entree choices. Is the caesar salad a side salad and the chicken bruschette like an appetizer? What happens when you'd like to do hors d'oeuvres with cocktail hr, does the chicken bruschette still get served? I'm so confused and our wedding is less than a month away! Help!!

 

Also, if anyone has ordered off the jellyfish menu can they let me know what they ended up doing? (Side soup/salad then entree with side, etc)

 

Thanks!!!

Hey Mady28,

 

So here is how is works.... You will get both entrees served prior to the main course, then your guests will be able to order 1 of the main course options on your wedding evening. Both sides are served with your main course. Your guests will be able to specify any allergies or health concerns they may have/require as their orders are being taken.  Everything is made fresh and on the spot. As for appetizers, they are a totally separate thing. We had apps served prior to dinner, while we were having a our pictures taken. We choose enough pieces for each person to get one. You can choose your appetizers when you meet with Mayte at the pre-meeting, as you will get to taste everything.... including all the options for your main course. So make sure you go with a fairly empty stomach. You will also be able to taste all the welcome cocktails before you narrow your choice down to two drinks.

 

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi! My wedding is in the beginning of January and I haven't been able to get Mayte to respond to me recently. I emailed her and hoped she would get back to me. I'm trying to be respectful while she mourns her child... but I'm starting to get stressed out. Other than pay my deposit and confirm that they received the money (April/May-ish), I haven't planned anything with her!

 

The only thing keeping me sane right now is AR-DreamWedding 's Jellyfish wedding template!! Thanks sooo much!

 

So, I'm hoping you all can help me with some questions. Thanks in advance!!

 

  • How tall is the wedding gazebo? I want to hang something paper cranes from it.
  • Can you provide fans on the backs on chairs or do I have to buy them?
  • Can I contact the DJ? I have some special requests - like asking him to provide microphones for my groomsmen, who are going to sing, play guitar and djembe for the bridesmaid processional.
  • Does your florist make flower leis. If so, can you give me an idea of how much they cost per lei for different flowers?
  • If I hire the baby sitter, how long does that person stay at my wedding?
  • Can I get the fire dancers for 10 or 15 minutes? How much would it cost? (I think a 20 minute show might be too long a break in the festivities.)
  • What is included in crazy hour? I've seen pictures of dancers, capoeira dancers, and a person on stilts. Do my guests interact with them or just watch the dancing?
  • How many cigars does the cigar roller give me before I have to pay for extra? How much is it to have the cigar roller two or three hours? I have a small wedding and don't think I'd need him for four hours.
  • Can you purchase small bottles of Mamajuana for me to use as wedding favors? If so, how much would 40 bottles cost?
  • Can you purchase sky lanterns for me? (I can't take them with me on the plane because of the fuel cells.) How much would 40 cost?
  • If we use an American Express card to pay, do we have to pay local tax? Is the only way to avoid that by paying cash?
  • How many times can the bus take people back to the hotel after the wedding? More than one?
