    So, onto this little tidbit of information. We've been wanting to find out what the cost is for the people at the resort to set up certain aspects of the ceremony and reception, i.e. chair sashes, table runners, lights etc, etc. Our coordinator has told us the set up charge is $3.00-$5.00 per person. They have not clarified what that entails though. Is that for everything? 

     

    On another side note, we found a place that sells really inexpensive decorations. the website is www tableclothsfactory dot com. They sell chair sashes for .49ea. Karisma/Lomas wants to charge us $5.00 each!

    Hey @CDC-SRW

     

    Yeah...I heard the max is $5 pp up to $250 total.  I'm still trying to sort that out with Fabio (wedding coordinator supervisor) I can't seem to get a definite answer. I've been trying to avoid the fee bc the items im bringing are the same things that are included in the wedding package-included items are white linens, napkins, etc.  I just wanna bring my own in color.  I don't know why cut and paste doesn't work on here but ive attached part of the email from him as a picture. Hopefully you can read it.  He doesn't say flat out...we will not charge for table cloths, sashes, etc.  I'm trying to get a definitive answer so I can print these emails and take them with me the day of the wedding.

     

    Also, since I have 24 people...I would assume they can't charge me the full $250.  I'm trying to get that answer too. The max for my group would be $120.  I'm also trying to get this in writing. I can't believe that I have to stress out over these little things.  Its really annoying.

     

    I will keep you posted and let you know how it goes. I post everything on my blog bc I want to help other brides with this stuff too.

    @ng2015, thank you :) I forgot also that the travel agency we're going through will have a website for us as well. I'm going to include a link for it on the wedding website we set up.

     

    Is anyone else setting up a wedding website? I think I'm going to use weddingwire.com.

     

    @talicea7812 how are things going with the WC's? Your big day is coming up!

    @KaraEbeth

     

    she is still terrible. I got a lot of my issues sorted out after waiting about 2 weeks to get a response from the WC superviser.  However, they are in total denial over the florida coordinators.  When I said im on my 3rd person and info wasn't transferred from one to the other he told me that was a special case.  I've been all over this forum and im not alone in being shifted from one coordinator to another.  He didn't even address my issues with Carol.

     

    I write a blog on here...Tina's Peacock Wedding.  If you want to know how everything panned out with that situation, its all on there- from my complaints to how they were handled.

     

    Anyway...even after all the fighting and talking about how bad planning has been going... we are right back to where we started. I've sent several questions to Carol and she picks and chooses what she wants to answer.  I don't think im asking anything too crazy?!?! Fox example: What size table cloths are used?  What size sheers are used on the gazebo? how many are recommended? I can't be the first person to bring this kind of stuff? or ask these questions?  It shouldn't take 2weeks & several emails to get back to me.

     

    So at this point I think I've covered all my bases with planning.  As far as I can think of, I've booked or decided on all the major stuff. Now its just little things- vacation clothes, finding luggage, printing things for OOT bags.

    @KaraEbeth I used weddingwire, then changed to appy couple because I liked their templates better, less confusing. It's not free though

      @ng2015 
      I have also been having issues with my wedding coordinator bring switched with no notice. That part is very frustrating, but my wedding is far enough away not to start panicking yet!

      @ng2015 I'm not using one. My stepmom is a travel agent so we're going through her. Are you?

      @malika2014 @KaraEbeth

       

      Hi Ladies, unfortunately I booked a block of rooms with Liberty Travel because I was afraid that by the time I found a travel agent I liked, my date would be gone. So now the room block is with Liberty Travel and I'm doing the rest by myself but I hear of all these great perks with the preferred wedding vendors and I'm wondering if I could fight for those same things on my own. @malika2014 do you think your guy would still work with me even though I blocked my rooms already?

       

      Thanks!!!!

      I've read somewhere on here about a bride asking for the same perks that the brides with karisma planners get.  She was able get them.  Doesn't hurt to ask
