If not, I'll just use it as my standard to reference.  either way I love it!

Just sent it via email. FYI it is a Microsoft Publisher file, so you'll need that in order to edit.

Just finished our timeline for the welcome bags! Well, my FI just finished them...but I'm very happy :) So glad he's figured out Publisher, because doing our own menu, programs, and timelines is saving us a lot of $$!!

These look great! Plus I love when FIs actually put some time into the wedding planning.

Allie is right on. Do you have your WC yet? They should be able to email tons of pricing info. If not feel free to ask here or send a private message :)
Thanks for your help! I haven't booked yet (as it's too far ahead to book in the UK at the moment) but we have pretty much got it down to between EDR & EDM so all karisma/el dorado help is muchly appreciated. X

Hi do you know if you have to pay a fee since you are bringing in your own sashes, runners etc?  In my contract I saw there was a fee for outside vendors didn't know if decorations there would be as well.

This is the million dollar question. There is a set-up fee. Many of us have been quote a $5 per person fee, however others have gotten down there and just been told it's a flat fee, such as $150. I have been told this will be determined once we get down there. So at this point I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.

Gotcha. Well I have all the documentation from my WC via email, if you want any. You can also view the wedding packages online, and all the add-ons, if that helps you. Just google "Lomas Wedding" and it'll take to their website. Let me know if you need any prices beyond that and I'll see what my WC sent me :)

I emailed my WC so I will see what type of quote I get. I am sure they do charge $150 or more so you are tempted to use there services instead :)

You are allowed to bring any of your own decorations. The set up fee is usually decided upon by the local WC once they see how much stuff you have and the time required to set it up. (hence your WC that you email, may not be able to give you a proper quote. They are based in Miami, not Mexico) Up to now we have suggested to brides to bring cash with them to the onsite meeting and then negioate the price there. The $5/person quote, is just to give you an idea. (but for example I had 63 guests and paid about $120)

I had my first dress fitting today and it went really well. I bought my dress from one of those knock off shops in China. I paid $150 for it and was really concerned the alterations would cost more than the dress because I ordered about 4 sizes too big.....OOPS!!!

The lady we met was wonderful and it's going to cost me less than $50 and she basically has to remake the dress. I am SO happy my friend recommended her woot.gif

Pictures to come when I go back mid February.

 

Now, back to my sound system dilemma - I know someone here had a tech savvy husband or future husband and was going to keep me informed of any good deals that they found that would be good for the Health Bar which is outside across from the beach, but for the life of me I can't find the post. I have terrible wedding brain these days, please forgive me!!

I'm still trying to decide if I want to rent or purchase. Purchasing makes more sense if we can get one reasonable enough, but I'm not sure if what we purchase will be loud enough, etc.

Someone want to just make this decision for me smile105.gifI would very glad to let you!!!

welcome.gifCongratulations!!!! This group is amazing and you will find everything need here for your DW. Allie is such a wonderful help here to all of us, I think I've survived a few cliff dives thanks to her and the other ladies!! Anything you may need, just ask - someone has certainly been there/done that or has some type of advice to lend.

Happy planning!!
