I wanted to have this booked back in December, but now it is looking like it will be February. Was anyone able to reserve a date without booking their trip first?

      Also, to those who recently got married, did you and your husband get the gold wristbands? What exactly did those wristbands entitle you to?

      Hi there :)

      I was just wondering if Paloma was the one who told you that you can't book anything for the wedding until you have booked your trip? I booked my wedding date in March of 2008 for April of 2009, and this was before we were able to book flights or anything. It was all booked and confirmed before we had done anything with our TA....maybe because we did it so far in advance? It just seems strange because she never once asked me for a deposit or anything, she only asked that we forward our booking information once our TA was able to set everything up....maybe try talking to Paloma if you havn't already? She was really great, very helpful and quick to reply to all my questions :)

      Good luck!

      Lindsay :)

        Hey :) I was just wondering if the wedding coordinator gave you your timeline, or did you have to ask her for one? I was about to email Jazmin to ask her about a timeline for the big day but I don't want to bug her if she will give me one closer to the date anyways... :)

          Me too, I was able to reserve my wedding day before I booked the trip. The way I see it, why would you choose a resort without knowing if they can accomodate you on the date and location of your ceremony? There was probably about a 2 week gap between me speaking with Paloma and my TA sending her my booking info. Good Luck!

            Yes, it was Paloma who "indirectly" told me. I had sent her an email back in November asking if she had a specific date in November 2009 available and she replied back by asking me to "send the required information (booking info, etc...), so that she could check availability"

            I just emailed her again leting her know I do not feel comfortable booking a trip and paying thousands of dollars when I don't even know if I will get a date that I even want. Hopefully she gets back to me with some good news.

                We just worked on it we picked our ceremony and then had to talk to the officiant to see when he could do it so we had the option 3 or 4 so we chose 3 since we wanted time to do picts etc. Then we worked together to come up with the timeline. We originally wanted the mariachi band right after the ceremony but our friend is playing the bagpipes for our recessional so she said why don't you have him play and then take picts with family & friends so our guests and us are not missing the band. Then have dinner and then have the band play after dinner, so pretty much we moved the cocktail hour til after dinner.

                We also were able to book our wedding before we booked our trip. We org. contacted the resort in March for a Feb wedding but they said they were not booking that far out yet and we had to get back to them at the end of April or early May.

                  I had to fill out the form also to check the avail. that does not mean you had to book your trip, for the section on tour operator we left it blank. The resort does not require a deposit so you should not have to put out any money.
