Just wondering what other people are thinking :)
    What do you get if you upgrade? Or do you mean upgrade from the cold to hot?
    They don't sound all that great to me either (esp. the eel! :) ) but we're doing our reception right afterwards so we really didn't even care if there was food at the cocktail hour. But we were told that we couldn't just do an open bar.

            I have to admit, last night I e-mailed Suzanna just to confirm reciept of my faxed contract...and I did not CC Carol and I recieved a response this afternoon! That was great....terrible that I get excited to get a response to an e-mail!

            So my contract was recieved and I finally feel like I have a wedding schedualed there! She said they normally ask which package and flower options and all of that 6-8 months before. Is this the same for everyone else? We are 10 months out, so it's not big deal to wait another 2 months...just wanted to make sure everyone else was on the same timeline!

            I have to say this forum keeps me sane!

                Wow, its good to hear that so many of you are getting things done with Zulma. Ive also been in contact with her and Michele at the resort because of a miscommunication error in the states and have had no problems. They are all great!

                Ive actually heard good things about the cocktail menu. I don't think anything at the resort is bad
                yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

                  Hi Ladies,

                  Not sure what is up with the food for the cocktail hour and if this was a change to but we got the hot options for no extra charge. Granted this was back in November before any new fees were imposed, luckily I got it in writing. I would ask about this. I am only doing my ceremony and cocktail hour at the Royal and they just mentioned the regular $10 fee per person. Zulma told me I could pick any of the hot or cold options. I agree I felt the cold apps were not that appetizing.

                    Well I heard from my WC today and while I can understand that there is a 400$ site fee to cover the charges of tables, linens, lighting, setup, etc... I just wonder why this was not mentioned in the first 12 emails or the checklist. I'm not that worried about it, because like I said I understand and my MIL is paying, but still it's just the principle! Also, the resort is almost full the week of our wedding and I'm getting nervous because several guests haven't booked yet. Some are waiting for tax returns to be safe financially. Makes me sad that some might have to stay off site.
