Jessica&Adam,

 

To avoid a penalty we started our room black small, and added in increments of 10 when the block got near full. So far it has worked out pretty well, but you have to keep an eye on the room block via the website online to monitor it so you know when to request more rooms. Otherwise, if it fills up your guests will not get your negotiated rate and there is now way for you to know that unless they tell you personally.

Oh ok! AhHHH I wish I could just get the contract from Fernanda and get to analyzing it, and then signing it...but I still haven't seen anything yet! sad.gif

 

Congrats, kelcrooks, on getting your date, that is sooo exciting!

 

Does anyone know how the payment schedule works? Fernanda explained it to me on my site visit, but I didn't quite understand what she was talking about...huh02.gif

Jessica,

I paid $500 when I signed the contract and will have to pay another $500 15 days before arrival. The rest will be paid on departure. Is that what you were wondering?

Indypitty,

I guess so!? When I asked her a while back, she had mentioned something really confusing about making a deposit of $1000, then making a 33% (of my grand total) payment 180 days prior to the wedding, then another 33% payment 90 days prior to, then the third 33% payment 30 days prior to, or something like that. But I would probably prefer to just pay it all at once, once in Cancun. And it sounds like I can do that, so thats good...

 

Your wedding is coming up so soon! Are you still planning, or pretty much done!?

Jessica,

 

What she told you does seem confusing! And it's weird that she told you something different...

 

We are pretty much done with all the planning! We need to make some final choices on food and music, and I need to hear back from Fernanda before I can do that. The communication has definitely been the hardest part. She has been really inconsistent, and I thought she would get better as my wedding got closer. Maybe 3 weeks still isn't that close in her opinion, as she probably has many wedding before mine.

The payment schedule depends upon your individual contract, which most likely depends on your anticipated amount of guests, venues you are using, etc. We are also on the incremented payment plan. There is no way for you to figure out how much each deposit will be on your own unless you already know exactly how many guests are attending and exactly what meal they are eating. Also, it depends on how you are handling your bar tab. We are expecting a lot of guests, but our second deposit (the one after the initial $1000) is based on the # of guests who booked their rooms and an estimate of how many of each meal we will require. I know this is confusing, but Fernanda will send you a breakdown of how they came to the deposit amount when the time comes.

 

I hope this explanation helps, let me know if you have any other questions or you need me to clarify further.

IndyPitty,

 

Wow you are only 3 weeks away! Congrats and I'm so sorryto hear Fernanda has not been responding faster. Don't stress though, I know it will be beautiful. I hate to say it, but just keep emailing her and let her know how frantic you are getting because it takes her so long to respond and you are so close to your wedding date. Hopefully that will get her to answer back sooner. Good luck!

Courtney,
I know how stressful that is! And especially since your wedding is so near! I would seriously just keep re-sending the same email every few days until I got a response. That seems to work pretty well, hehe.

Let me know what you decide to do as far as a DJ/Band, I would love to hear what you end up doing!

IndyPitty! Wow! 3 weeks is right around the corner! I'm excited for you!

 

Does anyone know what the Hotel Property Code for the Hilton Cancun is? I'm trying to log on and see the guest list manager, but I need that code to do so...

Opice,

 

I had a hard time with the hotel code, too. I think it is CUNHR if I remember correctly. I set mine up a while ago, and now it automatically logs me in. Let me know if that works...

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
