        I am soo confused!! lol
        I am doing a renewal of vows, and there are 2 packages to choose from, one is $600 and the other is $800 (rough estimate), I would encourage you to get on the hotels website and view all the packages. The site is Fiesta Hotel Group: The Royal Suites, Palladium Resorts, Fiesta Hoteles, Fresh Apartamentos, Ayre Hoteles - InformaciĀ³n, Reservas y Ofertas There should be a wedding package section which did include basic pricing.

        Good Luck!!

          Well, I am back in town. I already started my review, but I need to finish it. It's VERY long, because I have also reviewed the excursions we did and I get to add something about the local hospital... yeah.... It's quite nice actually.

          details to follow ladies, the hubby is off doing some photography on Sunday, so I am going to use that time to complete the review, upload pics on Flicker etc.

            That's great! I am looking forward to reading it!

            My fiance has been in touch with the resort WC - however it is now Caroline's assistant Nadia (?) who has been returning our emails. I am a little worried because I've read some posts with people told their ceremony would be at 10am!!! We are having a renewal of the vows wedding, so I am hoping this won't happen (as no judge is needed), however has anyone actually had to do this? Or did it end up getting changed once you arrived?

            Also -- did anyone experience the frustration of people saying they could come, and then backing out last minute? It seems like our guest list keeps dwindling, and I'm finding it hard not to take it personally -- lol, I guess this is the Bridezilla that people talk about (even though I'm not saying anything to the ones who can't come, I'm still hurt)! lol

              Carolina's assistant (whose name I thought was Kenia, but I could be wrong, she may have more then 1) has taken over briefly. Carolina is on a well deserved vacation right now.

                Thanks for sharing that. I happy to know some one else will be replying to my e-mails.

                I had a lot of people say they were coming, I am speaking mainly of the FI friends. and they all have backed down. WHat my FI had consider a good friend, decided to book a trip to Punta Cana in Nov. (they just came back) and so now they just sent our rsvp back saying his not coming (I know it's his gf who doesn't want to go, so he doesn't) and the FI still thinks of him as a friend, which I am horrible pissed about.
                I am taking it personal! lol so I am in the same place you are.
                I do have currently about 21 people coming (none of which are he FI friends, he has to take my MOH BF to be his bestman just to have a witness) I really had wish someone the FI thought as a good friend would be able to stand by him. It's dispointing (I think more for me, then for him lol sooo he says, you know men, they really never say their feelings)

                  Thats right! Kenia - thanks! Well my fiance had to email three times re-asking the questions, because each time she would only answer 1! lol, but I am sure she is fine.

                  In our case it is most of my friends who are unable to come, I am still a student and so are most of my friends so they do not have the money to spend on the trip - which is understandable. But my fiance's friends are older and are able to come -- it just sucks because a few of my friends had to back out. It's frustrating, but I am a family girl, so as long as my family is there that's all that matters!

                  It sounds like you have a good group coming, 21 people! :) We are hoping to get our 20 total. Fingers crossed!

                    I am younger as well, and some of my friends are in school as well, or just don't have the means to go on a vacation like this. i am hoping 2 have my MOH come with her BF (which would be the BM) and my BM. I am hoping fingeres crossed. SO I will not have very many friends. It's all family.
                    It sucks because the FI is older, with friends who are married and all that. The one I was speaking of before, he has a lot of $$ too. But they are backing down. Where my MOH is doing everything in her power to safe for this trip.
                    Boogle's my mind. Truely does.

                    I am exciting to say a # of 21 because I really thought I'd get maybe.. maybe 10 and that was including us. 21 isn't including us.
                    But like you,as long as my parents are there I am happy.

                      Exactly! :) It's hard not to take it personally, especially when I am giving like 6 months notice (we're getting married at the end of June), and people still can't save. Even though I can't afford it, I would definately start saving now or do what I had to do to get to one of my friends weddings. But, I guess you realize who your true friends are!! that is awful about your fiance's friend who went in November! That is so sad, and not very nice.
                      That being said, we have a few of my fiance's friends who are bringing girlfriends that I have never met, haha so I find it kind of weird that it will be the first time I meet them at my wedding! Oh well.

                      I still have not gotten a dress! And I have not finalized the date with Kenia (or Carolina), so getting antsy that we have not booked anything! ahhh!!
