I agree with you there, most prices for the stuff from Lomas is crazy and the stuff isn't even that great so we're opting for getting a few things from them and bringing most from home. Make sure you get your login information to your planning website http://karisma.thewe....com/Home/Login things will always be updated on there so you can make sure any changes are loaded to your account. My WC takes about 3 days to respond so I can deal with that, also for most things the answers will be in this forum or the Azul Fives 2014 thread, then it's just a matter of getting confirmation from your WC. Maybe ask your WC if there's any way you can get quicker responses. Since moving to a team approach they might be able to do that. I prefer to get answers from the same WC even if it takes longer, but mine doesn't take weeks to reply so that might affect my opinion. I think the biggest thing for me is letting go of that control and trusting both the Miami and the on-site coordinators that they'll do a great job. I'm also trying to accept that something will go wrong probably but to try and let it go unless it's something huge. That's the only way I don't go insane with trying to plan something from so far away.
Good to know that things are like they look in pictures!
