Do you have any of the contact info for Mexico incase they try to BS with you since technically your payment is due even though it's no way your fault that it's not turned in? I don't know the PDC manager's email (It's Zulma right ladies?) since I'm at Royal Cancun, but I just CC'd the manager in Cancun my emails to the Michigan girls just so they knew how dang frustrating they are! Paty and Lorena in Cancun have helped me out tremendously now. I hope they get on the ball for you.
i e-mailed angie again two days ago and copied carole cohen, who i believe is one of the managers as well. absolutely no response. when i get home from work today, i think i'll just call and get someone (anyone) to help me. i'm desperate at this point! i don't understand how they keep their jobs if they can't keep up with even getting checklists and payments in on time! there's NO WAY i'll be ready to make my final payment tomorrow if something big doesn't happen! it would be an absolute miracle.

RIGHT!! I know what you mean!! That was my biggest complaint to the Mexico offices. How did they expect me to pay this huge amount if I had absolutely nothing planned. I mean I didn't even know what I was going to be serving at the reception dinner up until a week ago!

I mean it's just crazy how the Michigan girls conduct business. And when I was trying to get someone else to help me cause Angie would go weeks without responding to me, they would all tell me "she's my manager, I can't take over a file from my manager" Well then tell her to do something! She really makes me mad cause of untrue things she said but whatever. Another story LOL.

Yeah try their phone lines would be your next option. Every time I tried calling the line was busy or she was always "out of the office" and when I could talk to her on the phone she was rude and would give me like one word answers. :/ She's just not a cool person to deal with!smile27.gif

i generally have tried e-mailing because i want to have the contents of our discussions in writing. i did, however, call last week and i spoke with her. i was amazed that i seemed to hear irritation in her voice at having to take a phone call. i tried being suuuper nice to her but she was pretty cold during the whole conversation. amazing. AND it took her 3 days after that to get back to me regarding space for a beach reception. argh.

 

i'll update you all tomorrow on what i am able to get accomplished (hopefully that's not too optimistic to think that i might actually make some progress). i'll take any prayers, luck, chi, karma, whatever - send it all my way. i'll need it all!

All of them are staying at either The Gran or The Real Resort so they better not have to pay anything to come in and help me get ready and my groom!!

Jesmcan - I'm having Fernando come to do my hair and makeup and i just had to pay the Vendor fee because the day pass only gets them access to the Resort and not into your room. Thats why u have to pay the vendor fee so they can go in your room.. sucks!
Uggghhh thanks for letting me know but I did figure that

Consider all of the above being sent your way! :)

Yes I am the same on wanting nothing but emails so I understand not wanting to rely on phone calls. You need everything by them in writing!!

Keep all of us posted on your progress. *Fingers crossed*

Hope things go better tomorrow! It's ridiculous that you're stressing about your wedding because the Michigan girls can't do their jobs!!

I heard from her today. I think she was out of the office, not sure. But I had sent her two e-mails a couple of days apart and she actually responded to both of them today. So I think she was playing catch up. She's usually very prompt by sending emails a day or two later, though.

Since we were having issues with Suzanna we also scheduled a site visit for Wicky's, just in case The Royal does not work out. We've been in contact with Aja now and she's been great! I'm hoping no more communicatin issues arise and The Royal works out for us .:) I sent in the $200 depsoit today to secure our date.

 

When I get back I'm sure I'll have plenty of information to share.

Awesome! Lucky you!!! Can't wait to hear your review from your visit & thanks in advance! cheesy.gif

This is the real touch bouquet that I am working on. It's not done yet, but hopefully it will work out for the best.

That looks fantastic!! So pretty! Where did you order the flowers from? I've been researching bc my mom & I are planning on making mine, too. I've been searching for turquoise and yellow. Did they have hair flowers, too?

Beach themed hair accessories - store.beachcomberbride.com

Thanks for that link! I found this one last nite.

Flower Hair Clip Turquoise by Girlflowers on Etsy

GirlFlowers® - Fashion Funk and Flair for Girls of All Ages

I'm not sure if this type is what I want, but it looks kinda cool & different.

LOVE IT!! I wish my hair would look like that! Too thin & fine sad.gif I decided yesterday that I'm going to look for some type of extentions or something.

I think the reserved seating like that will work great. We're not bc we've only got 23-25, but w/your big group, I think that's a good idea!

I also did not want a shower because I felt everyone was spending so much money to come down. Well I found it I am getting one anyways lol. I decided to register at Crate & Barrell and keep everything under $50. I figured we can always use new towels etc

We used this one bc its free Rainfall of Envelopes - Online Money Gifts For Weddings, Baby Showers, Graduations, More

I also dont want to pay extra ...guess i have time to figure it out.

 

Jess, regarding the seating for reception, I will most likely either have one of my brothers act as an usher, or put one of these on the front chairs:

Those are really nice & elegant! I think they'll look great, if you decide to do that.

I was thinking of the separate room thing, but FI didn't really want to. Plus they don't even have any open rooms the Friday nite before our wedding!

Yikes! I can't believe how close a bunch of us on here are getting and they STILL haven't gotten their crap together! Good luck!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
