    Lisa, you'll be there while I am. When are you staying until?

      How exciting!!! Can't wait to hear how it all goes ... I'm sure it will be great! What are the cost for the centerpiece options? I haven't decide on a package or custom either. Waiting for her to let me know the price differences.

        The price she has down for the centrepieces are $50 a piece.

        I have to say that I already really like Daniela. Her emails to me are much more complete (maybe her English is better then Perla's?). She told me that she has been with the Paradisus for at least the past year, but was laid off for 3 months after the whole swine flu fiasco. Maybe Perla didn't leave and she has just been laid off for her time period too? Daniela seems better at making suggestions when I ask.

        Last day at work today! Don't think it's going to be very productive!

            What kind of room is everyone booking? My first thought was to book the standard room and hope for an upgrade ... do you think that is even possible?

              I still cannot decide between Paradisus and Iberostar Maya!!!

              Either way I am booking standard room in hopes of a free upgrade (i better get one since I am brining along 50 people!!). If not, I can always pay for upgrade when I get there.

                Lisa - they do look very similar! Just make sure to look at pics from weddings there and hopefully that will help you decide... that is the hardest part (making the decision) :)

                  Well thanks for all of the helpful info that you all are finding out about the resort and various wedding costs. I am working with a destination wedding specialist, and frankly, she has not been that helpful up to this point, hopefully it gets better. Sounds like I need to check with her if there is another wedding the same day as me because all she told me was that we book it, but no further details before she went out of town. Funny thing is I originally wanted Nov. 13, glad I decided against that, looks like it is plenty full!

                    wow! such a popular date! Paradisus is amazing and I looked at Iberostar too but I wasn't so sure of their wedding packages. What wedding specialist are you working with? We were going to work with Luxe but honestly, as long as the hotel as a wedding coordinating dept, you can really do it yourself and save the $$$ :) I also heard from a friend that they upcharge you for everything bc they get kickbacks - you should be getting the most from your $$ - especially in this economy!

                      Hi everyone - just a question I have about the room rates you secured for your guests - did everyone do it through their TA or did you book through Cecilia in the group sales dept?
                      I am asking bc it seems like everyone gets a different rate and policy and I'm not sure what to do.
                      We are having about 80 people and would need 40-45 rooms blocked out for us. Any help is appreciated!

                      xoxo
