I just carried mine in a garment bag and took up one of the overhead bins.

    Great! Thanks - That isn't considered your carry-on though right?

      Kristen, Does this apply even if we already have him booked?

      I booked dorremix previously and just got my final bill from pilar- no up charges! 😀

      Awesome! I'm hoping for the same. I've already been corresponding with them and they haven't said anything about it yet so my fingers are crossed...

       

      Any surprises on your final bill?


      62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

        No surprises but it really adds up... We have 36 people, we are doing a private rehearsal dinner for $900... Our bill came to $7500!

          I have enclosed a Sunrise/Sunset calculator I found via the Weather Channel so each of you are aware of your EXACT Sunset times based on your wedding date.

            Oh geez, I just checked it online and it says around 7:30.  Good lord. Again with the misinformation, not that it matters, but just one more thing I have to double-check because our agent got it wrong.  Thanks Shannon!

                I'm getting married at the Now Jade on January 24, 2014! We're very excited and have been doing some of the early planning. We've decided to go with an outside photographer, but I have a question on that to the brides that have used outside photographers as well. Do we have to provide dinner for the photographer? He will only be staying for about 1-1.5 hours of the reception including the dinner.

                 

                Also, I know that the Divine Package includes a guitarist or violinist at the ceremony. Does anybody know if we can give them specific songs to play or do they just play something generic?


                We used Sweet Fire Photography on a 5 hr package and they didn't require meals at our reception, they simply went to the buffet to grab a bite while our guests ate (they don't take pictures during dinner since no one looks good eating ha).  If we had booked above 6 hrs dinner was required, I remember seeing that on her package/price list.

                 

                We used the guitarist during the cocktail hour and he was fantastic - he played a mix of tunes, many covers and some originals.  We didn't specify anything (particular songs, genre etc) and he did great.  Lots of positive compliments from guests and a few even bought his CDs (he gave us one as a wedding present which I thought was very sweet).

                they didn't for us, we also had a carry on suitcase with us, but I would check with your carrier just to be sure so there are no surprises.
