I need your advice - I don't know whether to scream or cry! (long - sorry!)

but after reading angelas response i must say she definitely has a point. you dont want people ordering off the full menu anyway because its too hard for the kitchen and no one will be eating at the same time. i dont understand what the extra $80 cost per person is for though. can you explain?

And about the adults only section, I personally wouldn't expect them to budge on that one, and, would you really want them to? Part of what you probably enjoy about that resort is it's ambience and fanciness and if they start breaking rules regarding things that contribute to the flow of their resort it wouldn't be as great of a place.
Do I think you're being unreasonable? No. But, I also think the responses by the hotel are very normal and to be expected under the circumstances. Also, in terms of hotel communication- imagine how many brides they are dealing with, and how many questions brides that are getting married in like 2 weeks have. Most of the time, communication significantly improves the closer you get to your wedding. You will have time right now- other people coser to their weddings don't. And, you're getting married in Mexico- things just operate on a little different time scale. Getting used to that idea now will definitely help you be less stressed later

I'm not sure what the additional $80 is for - I haven't talked with the WC yet. She simply described it as a "surcharge". There is already a charge for servers and setup, etc. during the meal, so I'm not quite sure.
As far as paring down the menu goes - I'm all in favor of a smaller menu - but the extent they want it pared down is very limited, so if we decide to proceed, we'll probably push back a bit and see if we can expand it a touch.
Just to lighten my mood... they want to serve a soup course. In Mexico in August - and the choices they gave us were a lobster bisque or a consume. I would have seen this point if it were gespacho or something. But somehow the idea of a nice hot soup (even lobster bisque which I LOVE) just cracks me up.
I'm still thinking I want the Paradisus. But I'll wait to talk to our TA and the WC before I commit to anything.
Happily married since 2008
