Yup tai flora did not give us a quote until about a month ago. It was very frustrating and they came up with a ridiculous number. Since they were taking forever for a quote I demanded the hotel provide me with more qualified vendors to use. I got a quote from JM floral which was very reasonable and we will be using them.

@@babijol they were very nice to us at our meeting in January but seriously the only excuse I got for not receiving a quote was they they were busy. Inappropriate. I told my wedding planner that I couldn't be expected to come up with soem unknown amount of money (I know from other brides that they are expensive.) With short notice. To give some in site their quote was about 5000 and JM 1500 for 5 tables and a sweet heart table

@babijol- for the bridal suite and the outside vendors, are they keeping track of that in order to collect the $500 vendor fee? I'm using an outside make up artist but was just  going to purchase a day pass for her for $125 instead of paying the $500 fee, do you think this will still work with getting her into the bridal suite without them knowing I didn't pay the fee? This may be a good idea too since I'll have at least 6  girls getting makeup done and we will probably all get our hair done at the spa.

@@Kcusack89 I can't believe Tai Flora quoted you $5000 :o . I can only imagine what my quote will be because I'm having 100 guests with 10 reception tables. 


@@Harrisc15 ---- I think your MUA should be able to use the zen spa. I think once you've paid to secure use the suite you can bring whomever you want there.  

 

While I was at the Hyatt I met a lady who got married there last year.  She told me that I can ask the hotel to waive some of the vendor fees.  She told me that she used outside vendor for photography, DJ and floral and decor and she asked the hotel to waive the vendor fees and they did. I asked her if they did just like that no questions asked and she said yes they did. It doesn't hurt to ask so I plan on asking once I've selected my outside vendors to have some of the fees waived. I don't mind paying some but if I could waive the vendor fee for the MUA and photographer I'll take that!

@@babijol everything was lovely as far as vendors I'd highly recommend Denise Mason for photography I had wpaj booked but they were a no show and Denise saved my wedding! That was the only vendor I used besides florals I went with I'm flora and loved my centerpieces and bouquet!

I just got the entertainment list with prices. There's a listing for "DJ" then "Dj with sound system". Anyone ask about this? If we choose "DJ" is there not a sound system included? Just wanted to find out before I ask my coordinator.

 

Can you send me any "additional cost" list you might have. This cost might help me make a decision.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
