I would definitely recommend calling or having your TA call for you. It gets super frustrating...and I understand they are crazy busy.
I finally have my date officially confirmed! January, 25 2010! Can't wait!

Ok this might be a stupid question but does the Kitchener photographer have contacts there or are you flying him out? Could you send me the contact info please.
So your getting married around the same time that i would like to......what did you end up paying? I'm tried to find the cheapest week for everyone.
Sorry I couldn't respond sooner. Here is the email I use to correspond with Victoria, along with her telephone number...just in case:
Tel: 011 + 52 (984) 875 15 00 Ext. 6765
The photographer in Kitchener would need to be flown out, but her prices are actually very reasonable compared to a lot of others...and trust me, I've done my fair share of research. Her company is called Captured Soul Photography. It won't hurt to check her out. I have done a consult meeting with her with my fiancee and she was great! I also pm'd you with our flight information. Let me know if you need anything else...and hope this helps!

At any point before that do you leave a deposit for the wedding date?
They will put your wedding date on hold for you until about 2 months before the day. No deposit is needed as you pay for everything once you meet with the coordinator during your wedding week. They cannot confirm the actual date for you until you have booked your vacation and are able to send them your travel manifest as proof that you are going to be at the resort during the day of your wedding. I hope this helps )

I dunno, they probably get annoyed with people emailing all the time asking the same questions. Try to get a lot of your questions answered here. There is not a whole lot you can do with them before you get there anyway. Give her a chance, but if she doesn't put your date on hold soon, maybe give a call. Once you have your date on hold you can sit back and relax.

I am having an AHR a few weeks after we get back. The funny thing is that the AHR will cost more than the DW, but my mom is pretty adament that we have something for those who couldn't attend, and my parents are paying for that, so I can't really argue.

My FI is not happy that we would have to spend so much extra money on the meal per person over 15 guests, like 66 dollars p/p That can really add up!!! His point of view is that our guests have already paid for their meals in their AI rates, so why pay so much more for the extra meal when the food at the restaraunts is very good I guess I can see his point, but I also understand that the extra rate is for the private staff and that it is supposedly "different" food than what is typically served at the a la cartes. It's making the decision making very hard as we are not sure exactly how many guests we'll have, but right now, it's looking close to 30. Sorry for all the venting, my actual questions is:
Also, are ya'll having an at home reception in addition or just having the party in Mexico....?
Also in response to the photographer question: I contacted WC Victoria at the resort and she emailed me back saying that as long as my photographer was a guest staying at least one night at the resort, that this was fine. She did not say anything about having to pay the fee since my photographer had a room for 3 nights. I did make a copy of this email to take with me in case this becomes an issue next may.

I do have a couple questions... How much can I change the packages? For example the Strawberry package? We do not want to do dinner, because we're expecting 60-80 people (my brother just had a Vegas wedding last weekend... 100 people - yikes!) If I want to just do appetizers, can I do that? Also, I saw on thier website that the wedding and reception location isn't confirmed until you meet with the wedding coordinator. If I decide during our visit in December, can I confirm a location even if it's 11 months out? Or can I confirm as my date gets closer even if we don't make another trip before the wedding? Also, does it matter...? The gazebo looks great, but I bet all of the outdoor locations are nice! Thanks for all the help/advice!!
