    From what I understand the dj services are provided by the resort, so it wouldn't be dj bob or any other "outside" dj.

      Has anyone had experience with getting makeup done at the resort salon? My WC is telling me that outside vendors for makeup are not allowed anymore.

      omg really?? That really sucks because I've already paid my deposit for outside hair and makeup. How do they get away with changing the rules so much like this? Our wedding is less than 4 months away and between all changes to rules and the fact that they won't even reply to our emails to start planning, we are very close to talking to our TA about switching resorts

        Hi Ladies so I sent Jazmin an email saying I wasnt happy about the new prices and that I had already paid the deposit for DJ Bob because I was told he was allowed.

        I recieved a reply last night to say she had spoke to her manager and I am still allowed DJ Bob because I had paid the deposit and the bar options were as followed

        $5 each for special cocktails and then $480 for the decoration and lounge seating

            So I have been asked to pick between tequila or Dan Pablo and I see you choice Dan Pablo and you said it was amazing what menu options did you choice Kristen.

            Also did you only receive 2 options of restaurants?

            I am so excited.

            I think I am going to ask the marachi to play at the meal

            how are all of you early 2014 brides getting emails from your WC's?
            My wedding in at the end of January and I have only received one email response from Maria that basically told me she would be taking a long time to respond to any of my questions.

            I haven't been able to get any pricing from her or any confirmation on anything other than our wedding date and time of day.

            any tips?? anyone else dealing with maria?
            i am trying to be patient and haven't sent that many questios but its 4.5 months away and we are trying to work out budgets and stuff.

            frustrating! :s

              I suggest being tough!!! I was seeing all the different procing that people are being quoted and I was starting to panick and we had paid the deposit for DJ Bob. I sent her an email saying we needed to know if the prices I was quoted 6mths ago were the same if not i wasnt going to be happy and if we wasnt allowed DJ Bob anymore we would seriously have to think about weather or not we still wanted the resort. THink this worked ..........

                I only got the option for tequilla restaurant or don pablo? We like the menu for the don pablo restaurnat but was going to ask about La Gran Tortuga did anyone else get this restaurant as an option?

                Im a bit dissapointed that all guests have to have the same set menu. 

                I am also wondering if the reception after the meal can be extended till 11pm does anyone else know?

                Thanks ladies

                  I think most of us felt your pain!! It took the resort a month and a half to confirm our wedding date alone - and that was with me emailing them constantly to follow up. Once I got a bit nasty, the responses came. Now we're 2 months away and Jazmin's on vacation?? Also, anyone bringing down their own photographer, they are not at all cooperative unless it is a minimum of 5 day stay. We have distant family members who are going to take our pics and they wanted us to pay Arrecife $400 because we originally planned on them coming for 4 days. I wonder if our parents will end up getting an invoice for snapping pictures at our wedding too lol

                    If you need any pricing, let me know and I'll try my best to help :)
