    Finally I got in touch with them and thought I would share the information I got so far. They are supposed to send me the menus for the new packages today, but I haven't received them (shocker). They said the food would be the same, just different packages names (I am not sure exactly what that means). They also mentioned that for the cocktail hour it is $15 per person (not sure if that is for divine package or the Now to eternity package) over the included 25 and for the dinner it is $48 per person over the 25 included for the now to eternity package and $53 per person over the included 25 for the divine package. They also mentioned that it is a $250 fee for the open bar. The cake is $6 per person after 25 and for the toast it is $4 per person after 25. They also mentioned that they are working out the music/sound system provider but that is not settled yet and it looks like they may not be working with SWANK any longer. That's all I got right now. I hope it helps.

      It does help! Thank you! Everyone here knows 100% more than I do at the moment so any info helps.

      I talked to that long lost high school girl and she said no to sharing photos. I was shocked actually. Who wouldn't want to share beautiful wedding pics?!! Oh well. Sorry ladies, I tried

        Great info. Better than what any of us have!

        I can't believe your friend wouldn't let you share her pics ... strange.

          A little bit more information. I received the menu for the divine package. I am not sure how it works- if we choose one entree and everyone has to eat it, or if the guests get to choose their own entree. I am trying to find that out.

          Asparagus creamy soup with smoked salmon
          Mushrooms and roasted garlic veloute
          Creamy lobster soup, brandy scented
          Shrimp minestrone

          MAIN COURSES
          Supreme of chicken stuffed with seafood, "fine champagne" sauce
          Surf and turf of beef filet and shrimps, wild mushroom sauce and mild sweet pepper sauce
          Beef filet Bordaleise; Duchess potato and asparagus

              this whole thing is really stressing me out for some reason and my wedding is still 6 months away!! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Got a random voicemail from someone saying a wedding coordinator is going to contact me... who knows - hopefully my TA is on top of everything.

                At least you've gotten a voicemail Lauren. I haven't heard anything since that generic email we all got! I must admit, I haven't been trying very hard to contact anyone though. I'm strangely calm throughout this whole transition... maybe I shouldn't be! eeek.

                    Just talked to my TA for over an hour, she has advised me we have to switch resorts. She is not getting any answers from anyone over there, and all the TA's from destinationweddings.com have said the same thing and have heard various complaints from people that have just visited there for weddings... SOOO stressed.
