      Hi ladies! Would you mind sending me the Palace extra price list? We're trying to compare costs to Dreams, who are super open with the add-ons and finding it so hard to find info on RIU.

        @AmorDeMiVida
        You're awesome for helping all the ladies out!!! And congratulations! Only 6 more months.
        I too am considering the riu or maybe the Now resorts but have no idea what the final wedding cost would be.
        Is it possible for someone to send it to me as well?
        My address jbw@mail.sfsu.edu

        Hi Guys!

         

        Its crunch time for me, Fed 20th EEK!

         

        Question, I have been hearing bad things about Guadalupe the WC. I originally had Ana, but was switched about 6 months ago. Does anyone else have an opinion on them? Although I haven't had anything specifically bad occur with Guadalupe, it does seem like she isnt too interested in making sure things run smoothly. I am asking her most of the questions, like do you need a seating chart with names of the people and what their dinner order is? She does, and she needs it ASAP! Well, good thing I asked!

         

        She wont give me any contact info for the $1050 DJ we set up. I also have specific info for him, that I just have to hope she gives him? Just hope they have the songs I want? Guess I wont know because I cant talk to him.... I asked again for that info we will see what happens. I want to ask to switch back to Ana to avoid any potential issues!!! :(

        Are you having a buffet meal?! I was trying to avoid this who seat plan thing.... What are your plans for a center piece ? I have Ana so far hopefully it isn't switched :( sorry this is so annoying for you so close to the wedding date!!! I wish we could get some answers, my wedding is May 20 and I only know that my reception site is confirmed. How did the lights work out for you? @samFEB2016

        @Ambie they wouldn't switch me to Ana, but I'm ok with it. I think I have everything over planned and communicated to help avoid issues. I still don't have contact info for the DJ but i made him a schedule and playlist which i had her send to him, and she is letting me meet him in person at our meeting we have 2 days before. So I feel better! I am not doing the buffet, I have 3 options (which I put on my RSVPs before I knew there was a 2 options max). Luckily they let me do 3! So I sent her who ordered what and what table they will be at, not specifically where they're sitting at the table. I figure they'll walk over with the dish and the guest will say 'oh I ordered that' plus most people got beef.... the most expensive of course! lol

        Im going to print our convos and pricing stuff and bring it to avoid any complications too.

         

        Also if anyone needs and idea for place cards, these were pretty cheap and easy to make! I ordered the sand dollars off amazon and ribbon was form Michaels I am going to stick them in a shallow teal tray filled with sand (thanks pinterest)

        @Ambie I think you need a seating chart if youre having a plated meal. If you have a buffet I don't see why they would need one. Im having 55 guests! And yes, we are doing our own center pieces. Hope they dont break in transit :( I have a square mirror for the bottom, a tall and short cylinder glass vase, I bought under water teal lights and rocks, then will fill with water and top it with a floating candle. Inspiration pic attached!

        Those look great!! I wish my baggage charge wasn't so crazy ! I think if I took the rocks it would be way to heavy with all the other stuff we have, we have 58 so far and a few last minute people who I'm sure will tack on , so we picked the buffet , and we will add the open bar for the extra 2 hours, I wish someone would talk to me lol so stressful waiting till the last minute! Where is your reception site?
