    The Gold Package Worksheet

    The minister ceremony symbolic to choose from.

    Weather information

     


    Las Dunnas we are doing our welcome party here this is the setup we get.


    Our welcome party will be here.  Sorry if this is a duplicate post.

    This is GREAT information @SusanMarie813! Thank you for sharing. 

     

    Quick question - where did the scripts come from? Are they specific to a certain minister?

      This is the minister from finest.  I am only doing symbolic ceremony so those were the only scripts he sent.   A month before you can reach out to your coordinator and she will give you the minister's information to email.  I am assuming though these are standard.

        I would like to create a wedding program with the order of service, but can't seem to find that information. Hoping to knock a few items off of my to-do list before it gets much closer. We are 66 days out as of today.

          It's in the documents I posted. Ask your coordinator for the ministers info. Then he will send you them as well.
          I'm not doing programs no one looks at them anyway so I choose not to do them. My friend did fans for her wedding and people didn't use them and tossed them. I decided then not worth it. So that's why I guess o didn't ask till now

            I will be sure to ask my wedding coordinator, as soon as I hear back from the email I sent on Monday. Hehehe. Soooo slow!

              I know I am using DJ Mannia and they are great to work with so far.  They answer right away.  Just provided my song lists, and all the info and so far easy to work with.  Understood everything I asked for.

               

              The Sparkler Company another issue i sent an email last week nothing.  It was through there website.  I just emailed my coordinator today to her see if she can get the info for us.

               

              The decor company has been pretty easy to work with as well.  

               

              One thing I recommend is I called my CC company up yesterday told them I was going to Mexico and Bermuda the time limit and that I will be having $$$ charges.  Since you cant pay up front while in states and only down there.  They told me they accept amex but sometimes it does not go through I did not want to take that chance.  So I made sure my Visa company knew what was going on.  They told me that it is good to call because something like this they would have stopped the card.   I fly back to the states on the 18th and the 20th I leave for a cruise.  I have my sons 2nd birthday the 19th so another big charge.  They would have been like what is going on with all of these charges.   I AMEX everything because its protected but this time I will use Visa just to be safe.

               

              1 Month from today I will be getting married in 10 minutes!!!

                So you have had to make arrangements directly with the minister, decor company, sparkler co, DJ, etc? The wedding coordinator doesn't handle all of this stuff for you? Oh LAWD! I need to get in touch with her so I can start working on everything!!! LOL

                 

                We did just apply for a Visa this week with no foreign transaction fees after realizing most places don't take Discover. 

                 

                Congrats on your upcoming wedding @SusanMarie813. September 13th will be our one year engagement anniversary...that is a great date ;)

                  Yeah she gives you the contacts and you email each directly to work on what you need. Then she coordinates everything else.
                  Once they respond to you ask for contacts for each.
                  I just emailed the spa this week to get all my appointments set for massages and hair etc. I'll let you know how that goes if that's what we should do or make them when you are there.

                  @airsusie congrats on getting married! You looked magnificent, and I'm so thankful you shared your photos. You truly are a Godsend! I've been pouring through the forums, and I feel so much more confident about going with Finest, so I'm glad to hear your wedding went off without a hitch. I'm excited to do our site visit in November and get the wedding planning going!


                  @NE112015 you are awesome. Thanks for sharing this! 


                  @texheather you make me feel like a slacker! We're planning on a May 2017 wedding and we're just planning our site visit for November 2015.

                   

                  I've been working with Destination Weddings, and they warned me about the hotel's response time. I guess so many people complained. I'm happy to hear everyone is having a great experience so far, and I cannot thank you all enough for sharing these resources. So glad I found this forum!

                    @Nicoleml - my wedding is in 60 days....that's the only reason I am getting a tad concerned. LOL. My wedding coordinator did finally reply yesterday to my email after a week. I had to email right back because only some of my questions were answered. Crossing my fingers I get a faster response this time around :)  

                     

                    You are so lucky to get to do a site visit first. I am going into this blind! Although I have to say, following the hotel on facebook & instagram has really helped eliminate a ton on worry. Everything looks so pretty!
