I don't want to get down there and get all stressed w/ what we have to plan! Yikes! I hope the resort knows the drill well enough and will take care of everything for us. We can't wait to hear your review!
I too am working with Valeria and she is great. She is however more reactive than proactive so you should go through a standard wedding checklist and see what if anything you might need or want. I just did my floral order since some include orchids and those have to be ordered 2 months in advance.
I think if you layout as much as you can in advance, the hotel does enough weddings that hopefully they will be able to handle everything smoothly. But IMHO, I'm not expecting them to go above and beyond with additional things that we not discussed in advance.
It should be great though!!!
