    I have another question...For the girls who are using outside vendors (like Planner 1 Events or Tropical Wedding Experts) - are you using them to do the table set-ups and ceremony set-ups, as well as the decorations and stuff, or are you using them in addition to the La Amada standard ceremony, cocktail hour and reception set-ups? 

     

    I am eagerly waiting for Ileana's response so that i can go ahead and confirm my date with her!!!!!!

            Congrats!!  Luckily now you have lots of time to plan :) 

             

            In response to your prior question, I'm using Gabi at Planner 1 to do the decor, table setting, lighting etc.  While Ileana has some inexpensive options, I was a little concerned about the execution (and thats the last thing I want to be worried about on my wedding day).  Email Gabi and get info from her, you'll be happy I promise!

              Is anyone planning a pre-wedding (Friday day/night) event NOT at La Amada?  I'm looking for ideas......

                What kind of rates did you guys get for the room block?  La Amada is being a little difficult and as of now is only giving me a $6 discount.  Did any of you have problems getting them to give you a break for a group booking?

                  Hi there!

                   

                  We are using a travel agent to help us with the group booking rate - to be honest, the hotel will do nothing unless you have a travel agent. The rates we secured are better than what's advertised on the site, but they are not heavily discounting. I would work with a travel agency, for sure.

                    Hello Ladies,

                    My fiance and I just got engaged on 10/10/10, and we're getting married at La Amada on Arpil 17th, 2011!  We're currently in the process of negotiating a group room rate.  I've never been to this hotel, but I've read great things by both brides-to-be on this site who have visited La Amada and also on Trip Advisor.  I think it sounds perfect for a wedding!!!

                     

                    I plan on using Ileana as my sole wedding coordinator and using La Amada for flowers, chairs and tables, etc.  It sounds like they're really flexible on bringing your own decorations, so I think I'm going to bring my own table centerpieces and ribbons for the ailse chairs (have family help bring it all down).  We're planning on having up to 100 guests, but it's too early to tell for sure who's coming at this point. 

                     

                    I would love to hear more about what you think of the space when you visit and any thoughts you may have to advise me.  We're planning this wedding in 5 months from far away with maybe one site visit in January or February, so any help would be greatly appreciated as far as what spots you think would be best for the dinner reception, for a band, etc.

                     

                    Best of luck to all of you!

                    Carla
