    Haven't been on here in ages, but logged on today to see how everybody was doing... for those who are worried about payments, I didn't make any payments until I was there. It wasn't until check out that I actually paid for everything. I had assumed they would want a deposit or something beforehand, but was told to just pay for everything once I was there... frustrating, I know, that people are getting different information but for the girls who are leaving soon and haven't paid don't worry at all... everything can be sorted out once you're there...let me know if any of you have any questions! Hope the planning is going well!

      Also, a tip... if you're paying for everything at the end be sure to request your invoice the night before check out. We did this, and it was good we did b/c it starts to get a bit confusing w/ all the different charges for different flowers, etc so it's nice to have time to go over it and make sure it's right. It ended up being a good thing we went over our invoice the night before b/c there was a charge of about $500 for an excursion that we never went on... they had accidently input our room number or something, but it took a little bit to sort it out so it was nice having the extra time to do so.
      Other than that, though, it was super easy just to pay for everything by credit card after the fact.

        I am walking down the "beach" to at last by etta james. I just love here and it is kind of my inside joke because my FI and I have been together for 8 years and no one thought he would ever ask...everyone was shocked.
        I also just simply love that song.

          OK, we finally booked our date Oct 24, 2009

          We are currently working w/ Laura. I sent her my $300 deposit (via credit card authorization form) and she told me that I will have to make 2 more payments...one in 30 days and another in 60 days. Maybe she is just more strict b/c she is the wedding manager...

          Pics-who is this Rachel person? Does she have a website? I love Elizabeth Medina, but she is pricey. I will have about 40 people at my wedding, so I will already be spending a lot of money on food, etc...

          Food-Can you guys recommend a menu for the 3 course dinner? We wanted buffet style, but I think you have to have 50+ people for that.

          DJ-the DJ that is provided by RPDC...has anyone used them? If so, who was it and how was the music?

          Has anyone been to RPDC in October? I am wondering what the weather will be like there. I live in Louisiana and it is 40 degrees here right now...

            Thanks for that great tip! I can imagine that helped a lot. It would probably have been kinda stressful trying to sort all that out upon check out. GREAT idea!!!

              Rachel is from www.playaweddings.com

              Her husband Paul Schrank, is widely known on the forum as one of THE great videographers! Rachel has recently begun (within the last year or so I suppose) shooting weddings, and they are updating their site with some of her latest work (check out their blog).

              Their prices are extremely reasonable...and if you like Elizabeth Medina, as I certainly do, I think you will be impressed by Rachel's artsy flare. She and Paul live in the Riviera, so there are no extra costs (besides a meal) that they charge (ie. hotel stay, travel, etc). outside of their videography/photography packages.

              Good luck with the rest of your planning!

                    So I'm trying to book my room reservations for the wedding but can't decide how many days early I should arrive at the hotel to wrap up last minute details for the wedding. My wedding is going to be on Saturday,Nov 7th and right now I"m thinking about getting there Wednesday.. is that calling it closes? Recommendations anyone?

                      Sorry guys, I was just reading a few posts back and saw someone else asked the same question! That's what i get for not checking in every day. However, I've got another question:

                      Did anyone arrange for group activities when guests arrived? Any recommendations? I'm thinking of doing a welcome cocktail cruise and maybe a tour of Tulum for whoever stays after the wedding. Any recommendation of company's or vendors that handle this type of thing?
