I just double checked and it was $17.40 each so $52.8 for 3. I'll try to figure out a way to attach the Decor Price list from Alquimia.  What I thought was insane was the price for paper lanterns ($348 per strand of 20) and string lights ($232 per strand of 20 bulbs)!

 

Does anyone have any pictures of the tables and chairs without the white covers? (The resort didn't have any) I'm debating not having the white table cloth and chair covers. I thought I could just take those off but then I realized that I may have to rent upgraded chairs at $7 each. 

So I can't figure out how to upload the attachment but here's the link to the Acquima decor services pricing guide. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_zoyOhoKIAhUHVpZGhIRHlNZGs/view?usp=sharing

Are you being charged for chair covers?!! We were only charged extra for the vases we rented and the general Las Olas lighting setup, which includes string lights and laterns. We did not get nickel and dimed for anything else that I think would be considered standard (of course, we added other extras). They even transferred all of our chair ribbons over from the ceremony to reception no problem. Maybe this is part of the new coordinators and perhaps they are revamping their policies? All I know is that one of the many things we were so happy with was that almost everything was included in our package.

@@JenniferH114 The white chair covers and white table cloths are included. I like this look in the picture with no covers and was hoping I could just take the covers off but I don't know what they would look like. I saw pictures of chairs without the covers but it turns out those are upgrades and would cost $7/chair.  How much did you pay for lights? I thought ~$300 per strand sounded like a lot since it seemed like it would need a couple strands at least.

I checked our invoice, and the lighting and lantern setup in Las Olas was $220.

 

There is picture or two in my gallery, but I'm on my phone so I can't post them.

Do you remember how many strands you needed? My reception is at Oreganos and if there are only 20 bulbs/ or lanterns per strand, I'd estimate at least 2 strands each, maybe 3. Which would put it at $1,160! That seems like a HUGE increase since last year. I also feel like the cost of flowers is really high so I'm trying to figure out what to do for centerpieces.

I have no idea how many strands bc it was just a general package for them to do all the lights and lanterns. I would say at least a couple of strands overhead and then lights wrapped around all the poles along the outside.

Hey Everyone!

 

We have narrowed down the resort to ERC and are super excited to have a February 2017 wedding there!  I've read through a lot of this post already and it's priceless advice.  I can't wait to chat with everyone once questions pop up. 

 

One that has surfaced already has to do with our group rates.  Our TA tried to persuade us to not go with Excellence because they can't book groups together very well (aka other sites discount prices better than the group rates).   I would rather our group get a better price than us the incentive.  Is this trying to persuade us to another chain or is this a real issue?

@@mam9p8 - Hmm.. well I booked with my TA, who works for Funjet and she was able to get us a group rate if we locked it in early... It's up to you though, our heart was set on the excellence!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
