  1. Hi Wedbliss,

    We're getting married in August also!

    Don't worry.  I don't even have a wedding coordinator yet!

    I still don't know the locations or ANYTHING.


    How many guests are you having?  When did you send out your invites?

  2. I do have a TA but the flight is not included.  Grrrr.....She's flying out of Canada so I'm not sure why it's so different.

I know some of my guests have found cheaper rates on orbitz and sites like that but my TA keeps telling me the rates will mostly likely drop for us. So if our guests book through the TA at the higher price they receive the difference back if the price drops but if it goes up that doesn't hurt them. And the rates I saw online through MP were slightly more than the rate we were given. Hope this helps some!


  3. My invites are going out today ladies!!

    I hope that I am not too late.  We are sending out 80+ invites and I'm already getting many verbal "we don't have the money" excuses.  

    Looks like it might just be my "immediate family" my FIs family won't fly.



    I'm getting nervous now!!


    We wanted a beautiful beach wedding and to avoid all of the family drama we were having here BUT we wanted SOME people to come!!!

  4. Yay! Congratulations!  Can't wait to hear about it!!!

I am so happy. They did mess up our room block. Our guest are spread all over each section but it isnt that big of a deal (none of our guest really care about stuff like that).


    We had our welcome dinner today. Afterwards we went to the fire show and nightcapped at the disco! We had a great time and I am so exhausted. I am glad my wedding is not until 6pm tomorrow.


    Tomorrow is the big day. I would have never made it without you guys. This time tomorrow I will no longer be Bride KSmith, I will be Bride KDavis!!


  5. Mocha , did you write a review yet? I can't wait to see and hear all about your wedding.

    It was pretty easy getting in the carriage. But the steps are super small so getting out is tricky. I did trip a little and you can see it in the video.


    I think you should ask to be assigned to someone else. She'll probably be running from your wedding to the next one, so at least yours is first. She will be able to handle both, but I'm surprised they are so close. Your ceremony will be just ending at the time she is supposed to go to the other bride. And yes, she will only show up 15-20 minutes before your ceremony. Don't worry, you will get to your wedding on time.


  6. Isn't it true that if you book $75+ nights you get the private party for FREE???

    I am also going to ask my TA to request the sunrise side and to make sure that that section has a lot of double beds.  Most of my guests are aren't couples so I wouldn't want 2 guys to be stuck sleeping on a double/queen bed!


    Well i'll let you all know how my final booking turns out. 


  7. THanks!

I am not sure how she came up with the schedule but my wedding is May 29th, the 1st payment was due when you book and I had my booking available back in October. The 2nd payment wasn't due till Feb and the third was due in April.



  8. Terpgurl,

    Do you remember how often your payments are due for your guests that are booking directly though your group?

Overall she got everything booked that I wanted pretty early on and even called me once to go over the details and send me a follow-up email. I hadn't heard from her since mid April but she emailed me last night and pretty much she is aware of my updates and we're all set to meet next Wednesday:-)



  9. UGH!!! Limits! I was unaware of this!!!!

    Here's a link to all the golf pricing:



    You can't use Resort Dollars to pay for shoes or clubs, so if they're not bringing their clubs, they'll have to pay out of pocket for that.


    Yes, you can use the $1500 towards hair & makeup (but it will come out of the $300 Resort Dollar limit on spa services).
