    thanks so very much for your kind words....I am so so so exicted and equally glad that Friday is here so that I can mail these babies off.  I need to run over to Target to finish our registry really quick (we added this at the request of some guest who were not going but wanted to get us a gift.)  On page 6 I listed we were registered at Bed Bath & Beyond and Target so I need to finish that up. 

     

    Rebecca does great work as well and I know that you are excited too.  YAY ladies on the move.

     

    Marvin is doing our flowers as well ;-) What are you doing for centerpieces?

    I should be getting mine hopefully by the end of the week or beginning of next and sending them out pretty much right after! I did mine with Allurements by Rebecca. She has been so awesome to work with too! We decided to go with a more "traditional" cover for ours, but I LOVE how colorful yours are! Everyone will be so excited to go once they get these for sure! :)

      Krsmith,

       

      Initially that happened to me as well but I would email him again and make sure your subject line is clear (just in case SPAM) comes into play.

      Has anyone heard from him lately? He emailed me back pretty quickly the first time around when I was inquiring about his service, but my other 2 or so emails have gone unanswered for at least a month! He said he would do our flowers, but I still haven't put a deposit down to hold our date!

        So on the palace website it says that people have to book by Oct 31st to receive the resort credits.... does anyone know what the next promotion is or if they are extending it?  Not all my guests will book by then, but I do have an email saying all of my guests will receive that promo, but I'm nervous they will still try to give me a hard time.

          Hey Ladies,

           

          Michaels is having a crazy sell....20%off of your entire purchase (including sale items) these coupons did not appear on my app but on the michaels website itself and are date and time specific. Upon check out you will receive (State specific maybe) another coupon for 40%off a regular priced item which is good until the 24th.  Since they only allow you to use one coupon at a time... I went right back into the store and used my app for 50% off a regular priced item yay... Had to buy a new cutter (while replacement is being worked on) and it only cost $21 buck...  

           

          Gotta love Michaels

            Thanks!  I got my contract changed to at least say we can have an outside photog but have to get them a room for at least 1 night.  I feel ok about that.  I contacted La Luna to check their pricing as I do know they have a great relationship with the palace resorts.  I am still waiting to hear from them, but I have a feeling they may still be out of our price range  :(  which is too bad, I love Del Sol and La Luna!  But I will wait to hear back from them.

             

            I thought about Marvin as well...So many girls do it without issues, but I assume they will catch on very soon.

             

            Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Unfortunately it isn't going to be as cheap as 2 passes would have been, but its not too far off. We just have to pay an outside vendor fee for each vendor we bring in. Del Sol and La Luna have a really good relationship with Palace Resorts, so I think that has helped make it pretty easy to get them in. I didn't even have to argue or push it at all! 

             

            We're even having Marvin do our flowers on the down low...he is practiced in being very stealth about it! Haha!

             

            Good luck!

              I'm glad that you feel better about your contract.  A one night stay made FI & I feel comfortable since many Miami coords go back and forth about day passes.  We felt it best to factor in the cost now than to be surprised later.  q

               

              As far as Marvin, he has been doing this for quite sometime and the reason that I felt comfortable with choosing him versus taking our own flowers which also proved expensive (going the real touch route).  With someone in your wedding party meeting him, I feel that MP can't even begin to get into this one.  But we all feel different ways about certain aspects of our wedding.

               

              I too love love love love Del Sol but as you stated they too are out of our price range.  But I absolutely love our house which marks our 5th month in....  ;-)

               

              Have a great weekend

                I may be looking into Marvin then.  You are probably right!  Bigger concern was the photog.

                 

                We bought our house in April, and I too, love our house, so I am willing to look at different photogs because of that.  There are so many other great ones that aren't as expensive.  This site has been so helpful with my research for photogs!

                    I can only imagine how excited you are!!!  Make sure you drive safe and then jump all around and holler when you get home ;-)  You deserve it.  I'm going to PM you

                      pps...I can't believe I forgot this one.  I want fuchsia shoes for my wedding, went to DSW on my lunch break and found the cutest pair!  I bought them!  HA!  Hopefully they will work, since I don't even have my dress.  but I knew I wanted this color!!!  I guess I can take them back if they don't work for whatever reason!
