    Hi again ladies! I'm starting to plan my OOT bags and realize there is a separate forum for that, BUT have been thinking about doing a door hanger OR a little poster for the door...does anyone know if they allow those at the Sapphire? I have read a lot about people doing that and sounds cute!

      Hi DinaQtobe

      It is 150$ for the whole time, not per hour.

      Hi Mylene,

       

      your cost sheet shows 3 hours at 150 per hour plus tax totalling $499.50.  was it only $150 on your final invoice?  if that is the case, I wont bother bringing my own sound system!

        Thanks!

         

        I narrowed it down to my top few resorts based on wedding packages, resort reviews, location, 'perks' such as ability to reserve beach/pool chairs, no reservations, no wristbands) etc.  Then I took my top few resorts and had my TA get quotes on each. when the quotes came back, Now Sapphire wasn't necessarily the cheapest, but I felt it was the best value for what we were paying, not only for the wedding package but also for all of the guests who are attending.

I send her a few emails over a month ago and NO response yet. I did re-send them last week but still nothing. Are there any of you that have been able to chat w/her over the phone? If so, how did you go about setting that up??? We have decided to go w/an offsite photographer so that's done, but we are trying to figure out rehearsal dinner and some other important things yet...

           

          I am 4 days before you... we will be there at the same time!!  :)  cant wait!!

           

          my understanding from what I've read is that there wont be very much communication until about 1 month before, so I am trying to be patient.  I emailed Anel with some questions about a month ago, and she responded within about a week and a half.  I'm trying not to stress about this stuff because everyone says they were so stressed beforehand and in the end it went perfect.  I know this is easier said than done though!

            I see the same thing - total of 500$.  I purchased a small system for $140 at Costco.  It's small, battery powered and can definitely fit into our carry-on bag.  It gets LOUD.  I will bring it and see what they say about the sound system when we get there.

              I emailed Anel over two weeks ago with our final list and resort sheet as our wedding is November 6th. I never heard back and I had a few changes so I emailed her again last week and got an out of office reply that she would be returning October 3rd. I am also friends with her on fb and she has always been super great and quick about responding so I am not sure if she is on vacation or what. She hasn't answered my message to her on fb either which she normally always does. I emailed Ramon today because it's now going on 3 weeks with no response I am down to a little over a month left. I guess we just be patient! :)

              I had not gotten a response from Anel in over a month to book the wedding so I emailed Ramon and he wrote back within a couple of hours and said Anel has been out of work for weeks due to a car accident. I sent him my info yesterday and today received confirmation of the date! Very excited to move forward and I guess I have to learn to be patient! :)

                I bought a system too, its a really good one and I got it for a steal.  however... I have SO MUCH other stuff to bring, and the extra baggage fees from Canada seem ridiculously high...$20 for every kg over 66 lbs!!!   how is everyone else handling getting all of their d©cor items and other stuff down to mexico?
