Sounds like we are on the same schedule. That's awesome.
I forgot to ask you. Did you guys decide on whether or not you are having a reception on the beach?
The cost is more than I thought. With the dinner in the palapas and two hours on the beach it will cost $35/person. Not a ton in the grand scheme of things but I was a bit surprised at the cost.
How are you making out with finalizing things
We are planning on doing the party on the beach for two hours, what we aren't for sure on is the gala set up. We are having our dinner in at the Cuban restaurant, and with it ending at 8:30 I don't want that to be too much of a break until the disco opens. The entertainment at the resort is fantastic, but I kind of wanted a different wedding-ish feel that evening. Because we are doing an AHR (Andrew wants one, I don't) I really don't want to spend the money on the gala set up or the private party. Being that the gala will be $675 and the private party $900 for 45 people. That's a lot of money when were going to be doing an AHR too.. Im a little torn at the moment as to what we will for sure be doing!
As for finalizing things; we are booked for the Cuban on our wedding day. And other than that I know Giselle will handle everything once we are down there.
My FI Andrew & I are arguing a bit (which we rarely do). Mainly about the AHR and his and his groomsmen attire!!!! ... Is anyone else having little arguments?
Hey Kay. We are having an AHR or variation of an AHR later on in the year when the weather is nice. We just bought a house that has a huge back yard. So we are going to do an open house kind of thing. Nothing sit down and we won't be wearing our outfits again. You can just come and go as you please. There will be lots of food and drinks and if you can come great and if you don't feel it's necessary or don't care to that's fine too. Just a laid back kind of feel to the day.
Good to hear that the prices are the same. $15/person for the palapas and $10/person/hour for the party on the beach.
Matt and I rarely argue. I have been making most of the decisions as I have a very specific vision, so sometimes when I'm feeling overwhelmed with things (usually making decisions......I'm horrible at it) I am not overly pleasant and it leads to a mini argument or me feeling resentful. I need to ask for help when I feel like this. I've learned a lot planning this wedding. lol
I hope you guys work it out and you both get the things you want.
