I was so upset when Juan Carlos emailed me saying that the 2015 prices went up and would apply to my wedding. I booked last February and specifically asked then if I booked at this price then would they honor it if the prices went up since they prices for 2015 weren't available yet. I was told when I booked by Anel that the price would be honored. I asked Juan Carlos if they would honor the 2014 price since that is what I was promised and he said they would only honor it if I paid the package balance by December 31st. I went ahead and paid it since it will save several hundred in both the increase and the tax. Just frustrated.
I did get the Bluetooth Bose speaker that I asked for from my fiance for Christmas so I have that now for our music for the cocktail hour and the reception. I realized the other day that I only have 4 months left and I'm starting to freak out just a bit. I have so much left to do. How is planning coming for everyone else?
I've been MIA but I am back now that my wedding is right around the corner as well... As far as the 2015 pricing that is exactly what I was told about it. I booked my wedding in January 2014 and they still told me I had to pay 2015 pricing unless I paid for the package price by Dec 31st. Anything and I mean anything can happen so we were not too comfortable with this. I'm not worrying myself over it.
As previously stated Ramon also quoted me ridiculous pricing for the flowers basically $1250 a centerpiece and I believe $125.00 for bridesmaids bouquets (something like that) I wanted tall centerpieces for my reception. I ended up going with Maya Floral. I ordered 3 tall centerpieces with Lilies, orchids and roses for $195 each and 3 bridesmaids bouquets for $85 each plus taxes and delivery fee totaled with the vendor fee. I believe it was no more than $1387.00 even with the resort vendor fee I paid way less than what the resort quoted me. Not to mention I sent both men pictures of what I wanted the same pic. Plus,Marvin (Maya Floral) will deliver and set things up the the way I requested. With my wedding package I get my bouquet, 3 boutineers and 3 corsages so it all works out. Tealights are included with my centerpieces from maya floral.
The only thing I am buying myself are bringing with me: Table cloths, charger plates, napkins, programs, menus and seating cards, 24 flameless tealights and sashes. I am upgrading the to the Tiffany chairs.
We also went with DJ Movil because he had great reviews and to be honest out of response times. He's been the absolute best. Within a couple hours he was contacted, we were quoted, contract was sent & signed by us, payment invoice sent to us. Contracts signed by DJ, finalized and confirmation of date & time booked was received. His response turn around time was extremely commendable. I know he'll take care of everything related to music all my how he quickly he responded. We booked him for 4 hours. Not to mention he provides two spotlights for lighting lol. Those coupled with my tea lights and the tealights I plan on bringing should cover it.
I plan on buying favors when we arrive to the resort because I've been to mexico a few times and the little boutiques are inexpensive to purchase things and I don't have to worry about customs and overweight luggage.
I'm trying to make this as simple as possible on myself we are already in paradise, I trust that they know what they are doing and unless something completely out of this world happens I know I'll be satisfied. My first fitting is January 17th and I'm super excited about that.
