  1. Hey Kristie I hope to meet you too. Our wedding is on the 17th, but we are coming in on the 11th too for a little pre-wedding vacation with my immediate family. Our guests don't start arriving until the 15th. Good luck with everything! I am so overwhelmed with packing. HA
  2. Hi Kristi We are having a signature cocktail at our cocktail hour after the ceremony. There was no charge for it. Have a safe trip! Looking forward to meeting you! Are you arriving on the 11th to Beach Palace? Stephanie
  3. I was just going to pack a duffle bag with welcome back items and decorations. That way we can just roll up duffle and toss in our suitcase for the way home. I think it will honestly be cheaper to pay for a bag than shipping to Cancun - I would also worry it wouldn't be there when we arrived.

  5. Hi Jen I used a travel agent and was able to pay everything by credit card. Contract required $50 per person deposit that gets credited back towards your room cost as folks book.

  7. Hi Kristie - yours does as well! Looking forward to seeing you there!!! It's coming up quick
  8. Hi Ladies I am new to this forum, but am getting married at BP on May 17, 2013 -I can't believe how quickly it's coming up. I was very stressed out when I first starting reading this forum a couple of months ago - I too had difficulty with being changed from coordinator to coordinator. I found that if you put URGENT in the subject of your email, you get a faster response. I also hadn't decided anything nor were my guests booking quick enough and that was making me crazy. It all comes together at once, so don't worry!! Most everyone will book at the last minute!! We have 50 guests coming down for our big day and we are taking full advantage of the freebies with our contract. Welcome Cocktail (Infinity Terrace) is on Wednesday, Pre-wedding Dinner (Beach) on Thursday and then Wedding (Sky Wedding Deck), Cocktail Hour (Sky Terrace) and Reception (Palenque Terrace). For the Pre-Wedding Dinner, Zuniga is providing tiki torches ($108 for 12) for atmosphere and I am bringing some tea lights for the tables. We are having a guitar soloist for the ceremony. Zuniga is allowing us the use of some of the reception centerpieces at the ceremony and will set them up on the ceremony site with no additional charge. We contracted JSAV for DJ services and had them provide an MC to make sure someone would be in charge of announcements and getting the dancing started - hopefully that will go accordingly. They are letting us use an iPod speak at the post-ceremony cocktail hour free of charge. It wasn't part of the package, but I asked for it and they had no problem providing. We are having an end to end lantern structure with 7 round tables on the Palenque Terrace. Zuniga is also doing under table lighting and centerpieces. I am brining tea lights and silk flowers with me. Check out Jamali Gardens http://www.jamaligarden.com/ if you need ideas for table decorations that won't cost an arm and a leg. Our colors are hot pink and orange. We ordered hot pink votive holders that were on clearance (40) and silk orchid flowers in hot pink and orange (60 of each color). It all cost $100 and will add a little something extra to the plain white table linens. We are using Ocean Photo Studio for the photography. They seemed pretty reasonable price-wise and the photo samples provided looked good. Everyone at all the vendors were very helpful and responsive. Past brides - any advice for when we arrive? Good luck with all your planning! Stephanie
