I have done everything through Pilar. She is usually pretty quick to get back to me. I am not using the resort photographer or the band during the ceremony so I was told I can get a DJ for 2 hours instead. There are a few other things I may try to swap out...like instead of a private transfer get a free trail hair and makeup run...I also think that things will add up quickly for centerpieces...I do not need a bouquet so I may try to work out something for that.

 

What has everyone done regarding the OOT bags? I don't want to have to have too much to bring on the plane with me but I don't know what I can get down there! Any suggestions?

 

Thanks :)

So far I have also only been able to swap the photography for extra video hours.... and I was told I would only have to pay for the day passes for the outside photographer. I think that you have to pay for an outside vendor for pretty much anything else you use...like florist..live band..DJ...

 

And if you think about...having to pay the day pass for your photographer also covers a meal for them at the buffet..which is usually asked for by photographers anyways so having to pay for the day pass isn't that huge of a deal.

I asked the same question and she told me 5.42 ft for a six person table.  I think they have an 8 or 10 top so I guess it depends on which you are going to have.  Is anyone getting a good deal on a rehearsal dinner?  It's my latest hurdle.  Someone on one of these threads said that they got a private dinner on the terrace for $20 pp without the $500 fee but when I mentioned it to Ana she acted like that was unheard of.  Not sure what we'll end up doing...

I can't believe it's only 26 days until my wedding! I'm actually starting to get nervous, for the first time through this whole process. I'm not exactly sure what I'm nervous about...I guess just the idea of it all coming together the way I want at the end. How are you other November brides feeling?

 

For those of you frustrated with the coordinators at the resort, don't worry. Ana has suddenly stepped up her communication and I've heard from her twice this week already. She requested my planning sheet, and then sent me a copy of the contract to go over, showing all of the charges and what they are for based on what we wrote on our planning sheet. Now we're just going back and forth about each item and she's asking for clarification about what we want, letting me know what they can and can't do, etc.

 

I did a trial run for packing about two weeks ago and managed to get everything into two suitcases, both of which are under the maximum weight. FI's clothes aren't packed yet, but I am so excited that we can do it all with just two suitcases. Between that, two carry-ons, my dress and his suit, I already think we will be a complete mess at the airport. I don't know how some people can do it with 4 or 5 bags!
