    I ave asked and they said no, and today they have put the fee up to $800 per vendor. So there is no chance of getting the ones I want now :-(



    Oh that is just pants! I dont know how they get away with it. What's your onsite company like?

      The onsite DJ hasn't got very good reviews. There are about 5 photographers that they recommend, they look okay but will have to have a serious look at them.


      On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

        Would you not opt for the ipod then? Is it worth paying out all that money for a DJ that isn't that great? I'm sure there will be a buzzing atmosphere with your wedding party on the day anyhow. Good luck i know we umm'd and arr'd for a while over our photographers. Decisions, decisions.....

          Hi Ladies

           

          I havent read all the posts but had to get out of the sun for a bit  - it is soooooooooo hot 29degs again today.

           

          It rained torrentially our first day and since then it has been really hot - i think the wedding pics will be amusing some of our guests have sun burn as its also v breezy here.  Away from the sea though it is sooooooooo hot.

           

          Saw one other wedding since we have been here and am so glad I didnt go for a big dress as although we get married at 4pm it is still really warm at that time!

           

          Well only 3 days before the wedding and I still just feel like I`m on holiday!  Sending warm sunny wishes from Mexico xx

            Dont have the DJ problem though as not having a 'reception' if you like out there. Just drinks in the piano bar and maybe move onto the club (if mum babysits, lol)

             


            Were doing the same as you Michelle... just meal and then drinks & hopefully a club afterwards :-) x

            My cake topper arrived today, I will post a picture once I've taken one, it is Superman carrying Lois Lane so cute, we also ordered the wedding cake knife & server which has ribbon on them & a little superman emblem & our champagne flute again with ribbon & the superman sign on....sounds tacky but super cute!!  Got Richards documents all posted off for translation today as well & going Lakeside on saturday to try some shoes on 2 bridesmaid who are 11 & 12....they are desperate to wear a heel......so it all seems like I'm getting somewhere at the minute......what do you think of the shoes girls?.....truthfully do you think they are suitable for 11 &12?

            Don't know why they have come up so small but you get the idea.

                Waybuloo.. I think the shoes are really sweet Bhs usually have some bridesmaid shoes with a little heal.We bought flip flops in the end from dotty ps as Amy was worried about blisters and they were a perfect match for her dress
