There's no mention of a beach reception...I'm so confused. And...Maritza is on vacation until March 1. Boo. So did everyone get a contract after they made their initial deposit? All I got was a receipt of payment and I was asked to complete a form with our personal info (ie name, dob, etc). Is anyone else working with Maritza?
After we made our deposit my WC (Elsa) sent us our contract with the ceremony and reception areas and times along with confirmation of birthdays wedding date names ect.

I'm also a little concerned about bringing decorations through customs...I haven't been saving my receipts! Would printed email confirmations suffice?
Wow, I am definitely a last-minute kind of girl. 2.5 months to go, still haven't done much of anything! Next steps: contact the florist, ask some questions of the photographer, finalize the menu and cake (hoping I can get the Tres Leche!), and start preparing myself for a crazy bachelorette party
We didn't book a room for our photographer. I do have him and his asst. on our guest list. I'm hoping to get the vendor fee waved. If not the hey at least we tried. I heard some girls getting a room for their photog for like $150. But I'm not sure at which REAL resort.
I heard that if you put labels on everything saying that they are decorations for a wedding and not for retail or sale , you shouldn't have a problem. I think if you print out confirmations that would be fine also.
I asked my WC about the tres leches cake and she said we can have it. SUPER excited about it!! Everyone raves about it.

You have to ask your WC about it, you should still be able to get it if you ask them. Its not listed as a flavor on their menu anymore.

Lisa - Did you have a tres leches wedding cake?
