    We just received an email from Pilar- $350.00 surcharge to use outside flowers :(   I think I might use my bouquet in the Divine pkg and get my girls to carry parasols?

      I thought I heard once that if you meet the vendor outside, you don't have to pay the vendor fee.

I replied to Pilar's email to ask/tell her that was plan, if we only have 2 choices I don't want one to be vegetarian when I know most people won't go for that by choice.


        Pilar advsied us 2 choices, plus 1 veg option, plus 2 options for children's if that helps....

        Also- to the pther poster- Pilar said the menu must be set inadvance, not last-minute, day of event changes....

          Also, I thought Jade was one of the cheaper.  We are going with Apple Vacations and they are giving us price reassurance.  We are blocking 10 rooms for a $500 deposit.  Then, that deposit will go to our stay.  All the guests have to do pay a $50 deposit for their room and pay nothing else until 70 days before they leave.  And, we will get the best prices that way.

            Hi Ladies,

             

            We just got our invoice from Pilar- eek!  Did you know they charge $150.00 just to have a podium at the reception?  $150.00!   Photographer Day pass $65.00 per photographer, so since we are using Photos in Cancun, we have to pay $130.00 for them to come :(   I expected that though.

            Also- for those doing a sand ceremony- Pilar will provide it at the resort for $60.00.   To set up the chair bows, $1 per bow.

              I bet that you won't pay the day fee for the photographer...mine came 2 days and I didn't pay for either day even though she quoted me that price before I arrived there. I wouldn't stress too much about it!

                We also made it part of our wedding website RSVP to select an entree. Most people are pretty used to it from other weddings I think..

                I can't remember exactly how many songs I sent him but it might have been around 20.
