@@TinkerSofi where are you finding the $100 fabric hire?

right on the e-mail they send you with the info it should be under ceremony. Each sheer fabric is $100 and they recommend 2. Colored ones are a bit more expensive.

Get ready to get squeezed out of every penny! Like I said, I was trying to get natural flowers for my cake, exactly as it is on the picture they send you for the memorable moments cake and it was almost as much as my bouquet! I basically told them "eff that" and that they are insane. We're going with sugar flowers. I guess some people pay they ridiculous prices and that's why they keep charging the same.

 

I wanted to have 4 roses for my centerpieces, well, every rose is $10 USD, without any kind of work because I have to make the centerpieces myself. It's not like $40 per table is a big deal in the grand scheme of things but considering it is Mexico and roses grow in backyards, they are crazy. It's not like they have to go to Alaska to pick the flowers. Again, eff that, we're going with fake flowers. I refuse to just comply with their abuse.

The wedding industry regardless of where you are- is notorious for gauging on pricing. I thought it would be better in Mexico and at an AI, but nope... It's a big business! Thankfully I don't mind doing an bit of DIY and research to save money where I can- and spending money where I feel it will make an impact. This is my second chance at marriage and the costs last time around for a "city wedding" was absurd... So I'm actually kind of relieved we have some options to bring our own decor etc. When going so far away this time!

@@Lilgabri03 I know it's totally ridiculous! $1300 for a small LED dance floor is actually appalling! I could buy one cheaper than that!!

 

Does anybody know how the Lomas situation works? Do I just order from their website and then they deliver things on the day of the wedding?

 

So far we've decided on sky ceremony , sky bar white glove cocktail party and then sky reception with family dinner meal. Sooo excited! :D

I know that for lomas you have to go through your coordinator and they'll add it to your summary sheet

@@Vickiw89 thank you thank you thank you...what a great source...i can see everything...looks like most pp got away with no picking one of the super expensive memorable packages. these videos made me think, chairs with no covers even look better than those that do...also, consider the wind when picking a veil...:D

@mazarin@Lilgabri03 glad it helps ladies. After the ceremony I would really like to go a get some group photos on the beach before heading off to the cocktail party. Do you think that they'll be a quieter spot on the beach to do this? Don't want people in their swimsuits in the background lol x

Yes, the new brochure prices have increased significantly!!  Sigh.

 

How is everyone decorating for your ceremony and reception?  I want to bring some decorations with me and some I'll rent off the Lomas site.  For example, I was going to bring table runners but it might be less hassle to just rent them at $8US a piece.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
