@SKYGIRL Cristina was amazing and she had gave us specific quotes for alcohol, tiffany chairs, and DJ. However, Mercy is now questioning it all and may not be able to negotiate the same arrangements with us. I'm practically finding out two weeks before my wedding that we have to somehow come up with 5 grand extra because of this. We finally spoke with Mercy after waiting for three weeks and this is the news that she gives me.

@Bride2B. I am so sorry, this is very stressfull!im afraid that i will run in to the same....since Christina left! I would suggest sending an email to the NOW main office??was Christina giving this to you as an extra without extra cost?ughh sorry u have to deal with this

@SKYGIRL So I know I probably sound very crazy but god must have answered my prayers. Because right after I made my last post, Mercy contacted my fiance and informed him that she would work with our original quote (:!! Because we have a big party (140 people) Cristina was hooking us up with a small discount for the tiffany chairs and alcohol. Fortunately, I didn't have to go as far to contact anyone above Mercy, but trust me when I say that my claws were out! lol
TO be honest my planning experience was almost perfect and the only reason this happened is because I had to have soemone take over my planning two weeks before the wedding. So I'm more than sure that your special day will turn out perfect! Keep ALLLL emails and make sure they provide you with an updated quote anytime a change is made. Happy planning!

I did have my reception at the Castaways, that was my requirement! We had 35 people all together and it was perfect, the Castaways is not so big and there are portions of the restaurant where you can choose to have them set up your reception... The pictures above is the spot that is closest to the ocean, I had mine in the middle section of the restaurant. It was a VERY windy night so we had them bring down the divider, kinda like a wall to sort of cover us a bit from the wind. I hope that made sense!

If you bring the lanterns they set that up for you as long as you give them instructions on how to do them, and they don't charge you extra for that! I had kind of the same set up in one area... I'm so mad I didn't get pictures but this is the inspiration. I had about 2 dozen different sizes paper lanterns and paper poms that hang the same as the flowers shown.

@JBMarch - That would be absolutely beautiful!! I hope anyways, cause its the same plan I have in mind....haha The thing is, I don't think they are going to give me Castaways.... So, I think I am going poolside... so - nowhere to hang from... I saw some photos of maybe some lattice overhangs on the sides... Not sure - Guess I will just bring the stuff and hope for the best... It seems like there is a LOT of hoping for the best!

Bride2B that is great that they were able to sort that out. I'm 5 weeks away and Cristina was my coordinator. I been nervous because I haven't heard from them in 3 weeks but I am taking deep breath and trying not to stress, lol. I wish a fun and safe trip. Enjoy every moment and congratulations!!

@MAYROSE. Thank you for your wishes and DO NOT hesitate to call them and be persistent if you do not hear from them. It's your wedding and their job is to coordinate, answer your questions, and ease any anxiety that we may have as brides. Wishing you a smooth and easy-going five weeks!
