Yay! Your big day is coming up so quickly!! I agree with you that you don't need the extra appies, we had 80 people and I think I got enough for 50. I will say that by the time we got to the cocktail hour it was pretty slim pickings for what was left! But all if my guests said they were delicious! I would say to get your photographer to swing by the cocktail hour to take a few photos of the appies and drinks though as the presentation was pretty nice. And that's basically the only way I saw what there was!

 

I am certain I was charged a set up fee of about the same amount but that included putting the chair bows on both at the ceremony and then moving them to the reception, and setting up everything in the reception including hanging paper balls from the ceiling. I had Ariadna as my coordinator though and she seems to be a lot easier to deal with than pilar!

 

I know we were stressing about costs adding up, but in the end, paying someone to have it done right was totally worth it!!

 

@@candle23 It's coming SO quickly!! Time has really flown, I feel like I JUST found this site and was getting started planning and that was over a year ago!!

 

Based on what you said, maybe I'll bump it up to 15 extra servings, or even 20...I certainly don't want to be stingy and leave guests hungry, I just know paying for a serving for each and every person wouldn't be necessary.

 

Maybe you could shed some light on the setup costs...on my contract, I have a $46.40 charge labeled "SET UP FEE BOWS FROM THE CEREMONY TO THE RECEPTION" which is sounds like is the charge you had, in addition to another $46.40 for "SET UP FEE (DECORATION AT CEREMONY : SEAHELL AT THE CANOPY)." Am I crazy, or does the second charge sound like it's just for one decoration?

Can anyone tell me how much it cost to get your hair done at the resort? My bridesmaids are asking and I have asked Pilar 3 different times and she NEVER answers me! 

 

Also, I'm working on my timeline for the day and I am so lost lol! Does anyone want to share theirs by any chance? :)

I was just there in April.  Hair was $79 and make-up $69.  If you send me your email I can forward you the price list that someone at the spa sent me.  I can also send you my timeline.  Honestly - my photographer saved me on that one - she gave me sample timeline that really helped.

In making your timeline, I strongly suggest you talk to the spa, your photographer, and your wedding coordinator - that's basically how ours was set. The spa will ask you your ceremony time and how many people you will have getting ready with you in order set your appointment time (spa1.nojrc@nowresorts.com). They have one bridal suite and have to divide the time based on the number of weddings they have for the day (at least that's how it worked for me).

 

After I had that information I talked to my photographers and they told me the amount of time it took to get all the pictures I wanted (getting ready for both the bride and groom, first look, ceremony, reception first look, etc) . We figured out the best way to make everything work and basically set up the timeline from there. After making the timeline, I talked with my wedding coordinator to make sure the ceremony and reception sites would be set up in time for the photographers to take pictures. It took a little back and forth and pumping the spa time a little but thats how mine was set.

 

As for the spa price list and setting a time for your appointments, I suggest you talk directly with them. Just email them and they'll get back to you.

This is what I was charged. I was able to haggle some things at the meeting with the coordinator though. They didn't remove the the set up fee for moving the bows, but I was able to get them to include programs, a crystal bead curtain, and a flowers on each chair for the same $47 ceremony set up price.

We had the resort photographer take pictures at our rehearsal dinner.  We got to see the pictures and pick out our images and book while we were still there.  At first I was thinking I should have just stuck with them, because I was seeing it all while I was there.  Then I got the photos back from our outside photographer.  The difference is amazing!  It was so worth the extra money!  

 

I'm attempting to attach one of the pictures from our rehearsal from the resort photographer.

Beautiful pictures @@tracyannhoward!! I so cant wait!!!! I always said that a photographer is where I am going to spend most of my money when it comes to my wedding, cause I will have those to look back on. My fiancé's cousin is just starting up photography and she said she would do our pictures. But part of me is a little nervous.... and now she is pregnant and doesn't now if she can make the wedding, as she is due the month before we go. So now I am not sure what I am going to do.

 

 

Was the cost fairly decent priced?

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
