We are getting a rechargable, cordless player so we don't have to deal with a plug. When I asked Lorena how much an extension chord would be, she quoted it for over $200. Can you believe it- for a flippin' extension chord!

Unfortunately, I can believe it. We were going to do what you are doing, but have decided to use the sound system rented through the Westin to save us a bit of a headache, and so we can have a microphone for the ceremony, and for toasts during the reception, if it's needed. We are IPODing too. We worked on playlists last night.

what annoys me is that she told me that she was waiting for us to send her a list of what my vision was for the wedding... which im sorry thats stupid, because we asked for a list of options so we knew what the choices were. i know that flowers are limited in cabo in terms of colors and species I was going through my old emails, and we were originally with Eve Lopez? Does she still work at the Westin? She was the person who would have originally handled our wedding plans if we had used the group room block. Maybe you could she if she is still around. She was always very responsive.
Also, they had originally given me Maira, and she was totally unresponsive with me. I had to cc Eva on a "concerned" email becaue Maira was so unresponsive. depending on the time of year, so why would i go thru all the trouble of coming up with a vision that is not even feasible... i dunno, that really irritated me. its not just the flowers, its the dj, everything...
Yes, doesn't make any sense.
you should email kelli castineiras right away about that. the price for them to come to the hotel plus tax and mandatory included gratuity is $128 for bridal hair only, or $225 for hair AND makeup (incl tax and tip). send me your email and ill give you the full price list for the outcall service.

i think we are going to go with kind of a combination of 3 & 4, i love the rose petals on the aisle, and the covered chairs are cheaper because they have those at the westin. the white chairs that are uncovered, i heard are really expensive because the westin has to rent them and them of course mark them up. do you gals have rose petals yet for the aisle? what color are you wanting to use? carly found an awesome seller on ebay that sells 1000 petals for $25, anybody interested in splitting a couple bags if we want the same colors? i'll post a link to the seller in a bit.

I think we'll be more with two. We'll have royal blue chair ties, and I don't think we'll use an aisle runner. Maura, what are your colors? Ours are royal blue, light blue, and coral, but I would also be interested in going in on rose petals, and I'm open to different colors, as long as they're not way off the color scheme. We really like the idea of rose petals, but of course, Westin quoted us an outrageous price, so that idea had been put to the side.
Does this mean you decided on a beach location for your ceremony? I think with the aisle runner, it will be no problem at all.
Also, Barrie and Maura, do you have plans for after the reception? I know quiet time is at 10pm, so we were deciding on just heading back to our condo for an after party or going into town.
