@@AddyB my date is July 31. 

 

I'm just now getting started with my WC Margari. She's pretty quick on response so far but can't answer my catholic ceremony questions. I have to go directly through the parish contact. 

 

One note to remember....everything is negotiable with them! It's a part of their culture. :)

Hi ladies - 

 

TWO MONTHS!! But, I was just wondering if anyone knows if you have to pay an outside vendor fee to use Pastor York as your officiant?

 

Thanks!!

Hi ladies, 

 

I am having the hardest time trying to get something beautiful for my centerpieces. We are already carrying stuff for our OOT bags, including 50+ tumblers and I really want to avoid carrying things for the centerpieces. Anyone have any luck getting floral arrangements for less than $100 per table? My WC quoted me $88 for a small centerpiece using a few roses, carnations and snapdragons.

@@MissTS I just sent my WC pictures of centerpieces I want. I'm getting very nervous about the decor. I also asked her about the outside vendor policy and she said it would be $1000 per vendor. That's ridiculous! Let's see the quotes she gives me when she gets back to me about the centerpieces.

@@BNeff have you had any luck negotiating anything?

Okay I just started following this forum and  I was told I could bring my own decorations? I see other people saying they were not allowed to do so??? I don't want to get there and no be allowed to use my decorations. Was anyone else told they could bring their own decorations or have done so in the past????

I was told I could bring my own decorations as well and that's exactly what I'm doing. They quoted me 3, 4, & $500usd for the each centerpiece. That ridiculous. I decided to do it all myself with a florist that is a friend. I already purchased all my flowers and centerpieces. If any brides getting married after me want to work out a deal to use them let me know. I will add some photos. I'm upset with the fact that they won't compensate me in some way for the things included in my package that I'm not going to use. But I will be taking everything that is included in package including the fish bowl centerpieces and making use of them some other way. I want to get my money's worth.

The centerpiece costs are out of control! I too am struggling with whether to pay way too much for the minimalism that they call a center piece, or attempt to bring the stuff to make my own.

 The outside vendor fee is a whole 'nother annoying topic. I think I'll just be going with Tropical Pictures.

I've been going back and forth with my WC for the pricing. We are going for a simple look to begin with and my fiance refuses to pay those prices. So we are trying to get the $60-$80 ones closer to $30. We'll see how that works.  

 

Just remember what you're there for.  :)

Hello ladies! 

 

My fiance and i just put the deposit down and booked our date! We are getting married November 7, 2015, our WC just sent us the pricing list for the centerpieces and stuff. My fiance and i refuse to pay that much for centerpieces, with that being said would you mind letting me know more information about your florist friend?

@kvilagi  We had a family member officiate and we weren't charged anything.  My ceremony was symbolic, so not sure if that makes any difference.

 

Ladies - I chose the centerpiece included in the package, but replaced the rocks in the fishbowl with these gel things my mom picked up.  My WC (Elizabeth) had no issues with me bringing my own stuff.  I honestly didn't even pay attention to the centerpieces....I only saw them in a pic my friend took! haha

 

The outside vendor fee is really annoying and I was very hesitant about Tropical Pictures so we ordered a small package to just have them cover the ceremony/group shots and then my cousin (who is a photographer) also took photos during the ceremony and reception.  I guess if you have someone in mind you can get around it that way. :P   It's still $550 for the most basic package, but I didn't have to pay my cousin so it worked for us.  We also did request their videographer.  We haven't received the video yet, but I already feel like we should have paid the extra $400 to have him for 3 hours at the reception. He was only there for about an hour and that's just dinner for the most part. 

 

I'll be posting a full review with some pics after we receive the video!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
