I am in the process of booking Marvin. His going rate really depends on the types of flowers you want, but are cheaper than the Palace florist. Let me know what variety of flowers you are looking for, and I may be able to share the pricing I have.

Ladies,

 

Have any of you or will you book with Marvin?  If so what have you found to be his going rate?  I'm thinking of tackling this as a DIY as I'm learning the real touch are expensive as well.  I'm by no means a flower person so I really don't want to spend much.  I have 6 bms, 6 grooms so it adds up.

I am only paying the day pass for DJ Mannia. I got this confirmed after an epic battle with the Palace weddings department.

Yay! Since your wedding is before mine, I would love to hear your opinion. Are you submitting a list of music to him, or relying on his expertise?

I'm going to use the complimentary bouquet that MP gives for myself.  So I'm in a toss up between peonies, roses, & gerbera daisies

With my party people, I am definitely submitting a list.  Although it wont' be all inclusive, I would like him to know and be comfortable with the direction that we are headed.  I'm not concerned about the order and will leave that up to his expertise. How about you?

So we have checked off some big things:

*picked up my dress as it came in a month and a half early!

 

*the BM dresses came in and all the girls recently picked them up and haven't had any issues!

 

*I ordered my girl's earrings from Etsy

 

*bought my girl's Coach wristlets for part of their present!

 

*Ordered what we think we want for the guy's suits- just waiting for a sample to come in so we can check it out

 

My bridal shower is Sunday and I'm super excited!  We are doing it so early because my sister/ MOH is going back to school in a few weeks 4 hours from us and she plays a sport and her life is basically owned and I don't want her to have to worry about planning stuff for me and be more stressed out plus now we can have something outside when it's nice and not in the snow if it was closer to the wedding date! pinkie.gif

I have contacted Marvin for flowers, and will be using him since he seems to be WAY cheaper than the resort. I am asking MP if I can use the flowers for my complimentary bouquet as either wedding cake flowers or another table arrangement.

 

I haven't decided on a Dj yet. It really depends on how many people end up coming. I don't want to shell out big bucks if we only end up having 15 people. If its small we will just rent the ipod system with the tech that comes with it. Its almost like having a Dj! But of we have a lot more people and its really a PARTAY then I think a Dj will be needed!

 

I just sent a HUGE list of questions to Janina, and she emailed me back saying she would forward it to the wedding dept. So hopefully I will get my on site coordinator soon and maybe have a lot of answers about things soon that I can share! :)

 

So far I have done:

 

Bought my dress, veil (last year), and pink crinoline for underneath

 

Bought my shoes

 

Bought the BM's dresses

 

Working on our Passport Invites with Rebecca

 

Created our luggage tags on Zazzle 

 

Ordered barefoot jewelery for my BMs with Red-i by Chelsea

 

Ordered personalized towels for lounge chairs on Etsy for girls and moms

 

Booked our Photographer for our wedding and TTD (Del Sol)

 

Working with Katie from Deco Cancun on centerpieces and decor

 

Requested to book my locations for all the events at MP (welcome dinner, rehearsal, reception, etc) 

 

Buying dresses and attire for the wedding week

 

Lost 10 LBS haha :)

 

 

Thats all I can think of off the top of my head, but there is still a lot more to do!!!

Hi Ladies,

 

For those that have or will contact Norma Perez for make-up, please do not quote the price that was given to me!.  I have many many people getting their make-up done and I also using her for other services as well.  It's quite disconcerting to receive an email from a vendor saying "did you say". Please please please contact each vendor for your own pricing.

 

Thanks

I notice your getting married a few weeks after us! Let me know if they do get you in contact with your on site coordinator! I asked once if I could get in touch and the Miami office flat out said no!  You most certainly have knocked a lot off of your list! How did you get in touch with Deco? If you don't mind me asking what questions did you ask? I am so carefree about most things that I am afraid I should be asking more.

I assumed I would be getting different answers........ that's Palace resorts for you! I hope that if I have the "no outside vendors" removed from my wedding contract and have written in there that I am only charged for day passes then (fingers crossed) I will be okay!

Outside vendor fee, however; he does take a little off of the price since he knows that we have to pay a fee for him to come on.  They are really being strict with the outside vendor fee vs. day passes.
