    for the hotel (flight doesn't matter, as I am going this year and got my tickets the first week they were avail for 375 roundtrip after taxes. I just want to get an idea for hotel because I've seen them range from $230-$600 (yikes on anything above the lowest....lol)

    Also, what if you want a rehersal but not necessarily a dinner? Do they charge you to do a test run the day before? (as long as there is an available slot). I want to see how to space my girls' and my walk down the aisle during the song (I'm using one song that is long instead of many songs that get cut off in the middle). I want to walk down during the culminating part :-D

      You can def do a Rehersal and they don't charge you :) They will tell you what time would be good for a run through :)

        there's no charge for the rehersal...we're doing ours and then going to one of the restaurants for dinner.

        as for the hotel rates...do not book directly with the resort!! I would definately recommend TA Jill from this site. I started out with a local TA and he sucked!! TA Jill has been awesome to work with and she has amazing prices!!

          yes I second that advice..:-) go through TA Jill. That was one of the best decisions I made during my process. I tried a local TA and I am still waiting for them to get back to me..LOL

            I third the advice for TA Jill. It's so nice having someone else deal with all of the booking stuff instead of having our guests calling me to ask questions. She's even able to arrange transportation between the hotel and airport which I'm not entirely sure the hotel does if booking through them.

              Did everyone book a specific time for their rehearsal already?
              I'd like to do something after the rehearsal with family but I don't really want to have to pay for another meal, did everyone just go to one of the restaurants?

                I would recommend a TA but people have gotten banned from this website for soliciting other TA's unless they are a TA that are a part of this forum. I would suggest no one recommend anyone unless you want to be banned.

                  Thanks guys! To answer someone's comment... if you book directly through the resort (it takes you to an off site booking area), they do provide airport transfer, but the entire package is ridiculously expensive and like everyone said, probably a much better idea to book with a TA from here. Nice to know about the rehearsal (5 weeks until my site visit!!!)

                    Thanks ladies, you're all very sweet! I just hope that I've been able to make things easier on you. I know guests will still always contact the bride and groom with questions, but hopefully it's a little bit less knowing they can contact me to get some of their questions answered too!
