      Hey Ladies.  I had some travel agent craziness this week, but managed to find a new one that agreed to match online offers as well as book everyone in our "group" so we still get the benefits.  What a headache!  The last question that I have is with airport transfers...do you all know if you still get a complimentary transfer regardless of how you book your stay at the Now Jade?  I'm getting mixed info and I want to make sure that everyone has a shuttle to the resort and doesn't have to pay an arm and a leg.  Anyone know the answer?? Thanks

The catch is I will have to go pick them up bc there is 350 charge for an outside florist to set up on the resort and I am not paying for that - but we will see.  The florist I have been working with has a website you can see here  http://www.vanessajaimes.com/.  

         

        Hope that helps.  I am still figuring out this gift bag thing for my guest. I can't believe that I am in within 90 days. Times flies. 

         

         


        Hi Carneice... just wondering what you ended up doing for flowers? At your suggestion i checked out Vanessa Jaimes and really like what i saw on her website!! Just wondering if the cost ended up being less than the resort? and if you have any pics that would be great!!! Thnaks

          Hi there - I'm trying to get in touch with that florist to get their rates and I'm having a hard time getting responses... How are you communicating with them?

           

          thanks!

            Hey Shills-Have you booked a photographer yet?  I think I am going to end up bringing one with and was thinking that another bride may want to split the travel cost to make it less expensive on both of us!  Let me know if you're interested.

We're giving out most of the bags to our local guests before we leave home so we don't have to lug them all there.  Happy planning!

              Hi kthun!  We were just planning on taking our chances and using the resort photographer but if you have an idea of costs for the photographer you might bring we can definitely think about it and let you know!

                    Off the subject, but I need your help!  My sister is in the final 5 to win her wedding and she needs votes in the next 24 hours to win.  There are 5 girls in my family so my dad would appreciate the support ;)  She's in the lead now, but every vote counts!  http://mix108.com/ul...iveaway-voting/  Vote for Laura and Dave! I've been voting so much that I think I may get carpal tunnel...oh the things we'll do for family.  Thanks ladies!!
