- Wedding: January 2014
Hi bees (is that what we are to call ourselves now?)
I’m getting married in January 2014. I’m planning a destination wedding from Ohio and once the fiance and I decided on January, we knew we had to go somewhere warm and Miami just seemed perfect. Once i saw the pics of the ancient spanish monastery on various sites, I couldn’t stop thinking about it, and how I felt this was the place that I wanted to have my wedding.
So i booked it. While still in Ohio. Not even going there for a site visit or anything. 1/2 the deposit down. Now, I can get $100 of it back within the first thirty days of deposit so I’m not worrying too much, but when I heard that someone else was interested in booking the venue for the same date I wanted, I went into panic mode and pulled out the credit card.
I know, probably not the best rash decision I’ve made, but hopefully not the worst…
Now, I need your help. For ANYONE out there who has had their wedding at the Ancient Spanish Monastery, can you give me an idea of what to expect? Carolina seems amazing when I talk to her on the phone, but how was it dealing with either her or Tania? Also, although I know that prices vary widely, about how much should I expect to pay in the end just anything regarding decorating and catering for this venue? Did anyone use the chairs and tables that they have available or did you use any vendors that you absolutely loved? Also, does anyone have any reason for me to CANCEL this venue?
Speak now or forever hold your peace… 🙂
Thanks in advance! I’ll be looking forward to what you all have to say!
