Looks like you are doing soo much!! Cannot wait to see all these pictures!! Can I ask what did you pay for your t-shirts?? I'm totally with you though..I feel like I've done more research ont OOT bags than I did on trying to find my dress.

 

Are you planning on posting templates??

So, I am feeling excited.  My OOT bags are almost complete.  I ordered t-shirts from Vista print yesterday for a great price.  I am ordering plastic stein mugs today.  I have all the medicines, etc...that I am also putting in them.  I think I am putting more effort into those bags than my actual wedding!  HA!!  Hopefully everyone likes them as much as I do!

 

I have the templates for the wedding survival kits / maracas and OOT bag tags, just need to paper to print it out!

 

Things are moving along!  I will post pix soon enough!  I go in for my dress "viewing" on tuesday so maybe I will finally post my hair flower, earrings and bracelet then.

 

Happy almost Friday!

I got a response last night regarding the outrageous set up fees- I was told it is $100 fee for the ceremony and $200 PER TABLE for the reception!!!! That is outrageous!!

 

I have questioned her to ask if that still pertains to people if they get the unlimited private events and if I can just have a friend/guest of the wedding set up my reception decorations- as all I will have is a table runner and my favors ( I will do away with chair bows if they are going to charge that much!!!) So we will see what Janessa says!

 

I cannot believe they would charge that much! Clearly they don't want us bringing our own decorations- they have gotten smart.

Thats soo fustrating and outrageous!!! Im seriously considering asking a couple of my friends just to do the setup for the reception. I cannot see paying that much money!!!!! seriously $200 PER TABLE to throw some linens and put the favors out.. hissyfit.gif I hope they are realizing they are hurting their wedding business and not helping it at all!

I know!!!! I hope she says I can have friends set it up, otherwise I guess I will be renting the table runners at $7 a pop....which I won't have more than 4 tables, so that's not the end of the world, but it is just frustrating they go from $65 for everything to $200 a table PLUS $100 for the ceremony!!!

Has anyone else booked any of the Colin Cowie packages yet? I started out thinking I wanted to do the Pearl Shimmer package and now I'm questioning the investment of it. It sounded and looked great but now I'm questioning it all. I kind of want to switch to the complimentary package and add on from there. Thoughts??? helppp??

I understand!  I looked at the packages, & I was going to pick the pearl shimmer, but decided against it.  I figured I could get the complimentary package, & just add on things I want!!  The new complimentary package looks much better than the old one, so I'm feeling good about picking it!!

Hey Summer!  We were in Minneapolis, but his Dad lives in Duluth (that's where FI grew up).  Have so much fun at your shower and bach. party!!!

I paid $72 for 16 t-shirts from vista print.  That was 1/2 off the original price.  Vista print always has great deals!  I will definitely post templates!  I got all my templates from this site, so I will definitely be paying it forward!

*tear tear*  I really hate hearing this!  I thinking I am going to have to forgo bringing my own chair sashes and table runners (even though, I have already bought them)  I hope Ivis gets back to me soon.  And...I REALLY hope this doesn't mean they won't put the favors on the tables.  That would severely P!SS me off!!!

I am doing the complimentary package with add ons...although Im not sure what??? I definately want the horse drawn carriage!

 

I have also reached 65 room nights booked and I am thinking thats going to be about it.

However, I would love to be surprised by a couple more, but having an AHR makes it easier for people to celebrate with us back here.

 

I have loved not having to deal with the moon palace directly! My Travel Agent has done all the coorespondence :)

 

I am just waiting for my 90 days out phone call. I know some people have been having problems and I am hoping to know exactly what I want by the time they call me. So I have a few questions for all you experts!

 

What should I do with my 2 hour function-does it include dinner? Id like it to be 4 hours with a buffet and use PSAV. How many people per table? Was that ever figured out? and how much is it per hour to extend? I feel like there is no straight set answer? Is it in my contract?

 

I know you all have been going back and forth and Ive been following everything, I just want to make this as stress-free as possible. I envy all your creativity and hard work!!!

I know Jamie- it is very frustrating that they are going to try and charge that much- I'm sorry to hear you already bought all of your sashes and everything! I will let everyone know what Janessa says if I can have a friend set up the decorations! 

 

 

What is really frustrating is that we no longer have contracts- so I feel like they can just make something up and tell us and we have no proof if it is right or wrong.  Ugh!

 

I am too doing the complimentary package and I might just pay to have orange chair sashes on the aisle to give it a pop of color! I guess I will have to pay $4 a chair sash if that is the only option- Ugh!!! Makes me angry!

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
