    Jessica&Adam,

    To avoid a penalty we started our room black small, and added in increments of 10 when the block got near full. So far it has worked out pretty well, but you have to keep an eye on the room block via the website online to monitor it so you know when to request more rooms. Otherwise, if it fills up your guests will not get your negotiated rate and there is now way for you to know that unless they tell you personally.

      Oh ok! AhHHH I wish I could just get the contract from Fernanda and get to analyzing it, and then signing it...but I still haven't seen anything yet!

      Congrats, kelcrooks, on getting your date, that is sooo exciting!

      Does anyone know how the payment schedule works? Fernanda explained it to me on my site visit, but I didn't quite understand what she was talking about...

        Jessica,

        I paid $500 when I signed the contract and will have to pay another $500 15 days before arrival. The rest will be paid on departure. Is that what you were wondering?

          Indypitty,
          I guess so!? When I asked her a while back, she had mentioned something really confusing about making a deposit of $1000, then making a 33% (of my grand total) payment 180 days prior to the wedding, then another 33% payment 90 days prior to, then the third 33% payment 30 days prior to, or something like that. But I would probably prefer to just pay it all at once, once in Cancun. And it sounds like I can do that, so thats good...

          Your wedding is coming up so soon! Are you still planning, or pretty much done!?

            Jessica,

            What she told you does seem confusing! And it's weird that she told you something different...

            We are pretty much done with all the planning! We need to make some final choices on food and music, and I need to hear back from Fernanda before I can do that. The communication has definitely been the hardest part. She has been really inconsistent, and I thought she would get better as my wedding got closer. Maybe 3 weeks still isn't that close in her opinion, as she probably has many wedding before mine.

              The payment schedule depends upon your individual contract, which most likely depends on your anticipated amount of guests, venues you are using, etc. We are also on the incremented payment plan. There is no way for you to figure out how much each deposit will be on your own unless you already know exactly how many guests are attending and exactly what meal they are eating. Also, it depends on how you are handling your bar tab. We are expecting a lot of guests, but our second deposit (the one after the initial $1000) is based on the # of guests who booked their rooms and an estimate of how many of each meal we will require. I know this is confusing, but Fernanda will send you a breakdown of how they came to the deposit amount when the time comes.

              I hope this explanation helps, let me know if you have any other questions or you need me to clarify further.

              - Kim

                IndyPitty,

                Wow you are only 3 weeks away! Congrats and I'm so sorryto hear Fernanda has not been responding faster. Don't stress though, I know it will be beautiful. I hate to say it, but just keep emailing her and let her know how frantic you are getting because it takes her so long to respond and you are so close to your wedding date. Hopefully that will get her to answer back sooner. Good luck!

                - Kim

                  Courtney,
                  I know how stressful that is! And especially since your wedding is so near! I would seriously just keep re-sending the same email every few days until I got a response. That seems to work pretty well, hehe.

                  Let me know what you decide to do as far as a DJ/Band, I would love to hear what you end up doing!

                    Jessica - congrats on getting the Mitachi!! That is AWESOME!!!

                    IndyPitty! Wow! 3 weeks is right around the corner! I'm excited for you!

                    Does anyone know what the Hotel Property Code for the Hilton Cancun is? I'm trying to log on and see the guest list manager, but I need that code to do so...

                      Opice,

                      I had a hard time with the hotel code, too. I think it is CUNHR if I remember correctly. I set mine up a while ago, and now it automatically logs me in. Let me know if that works...
