The info is very much still valid, the only thing that has changed is the pre priced packages. If I were you, I would go through the spreadsheets and price out what you think is important. If it totals more than the package on the website and offers less, then you need to pick one of those packages, that's all.

Janina is my Miami WC. Does anyone know how long it takes to receive the wedding contract after you confirm the date? Will the wedding contract also contain the group booking contract?
Oh wow! Congrats! I'm getting married the same day at 4 p.m.! Which gazebo are you getting married at? We're at the Immaculate Conception chapel in Nizuc!

I wonder if they have pictures of each of the different decorations available or if everyone getting married now is still on the old packages.
I want DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS, lol. It is funny because I am such a planner that micromanages and needs to know NOW and this is the kind of thing you have to be patient and let them contact you when they get a chance...I downloaded the files with the bouquets, ceremony locations, and cakes but that is all old information so now I want the new information, lol! Meanwhile I am still stuck on firming a date and what colors to have, boy oh boy...

We used a travel agent to arrange our group contract... We negotiated with her and MP and got even a slightly lower rate than the group contract rate... but the stipulation was, we MUST have 10 rooms or that price is VOID! (not to mention we no longer qualify for the free cocktail hour). Well, the deadline is Sept. 1st to finalize rooms, and we have 9!!!!! I think we have exhausted all of our options of people to invite (our turnout was a lot less than we thought because of the economy). If I don't get this 1 room, they are going to raise the prices back up for everybody and that is not fair to my guests!! The price is roughly $13 less per person per day.... but that adds up when a family of 4 comes for 5 days!! Ahhh I'm so worried now!
Some of the family has already complained how expensive it is... which I justified by telling them how everything would be taken care of once they got there.... but they are going to FREAK if they find out they owe even more than I quoted them! Ahhhh so frustrating!
I know I can't afford to pay the difference for all of our guests..... we have our outside photog. staying 1 night, but I was thinking about possibly paying for 2 more nights to make the three night minimum..... I know for sure he would not be staying there though. He probably has other weddings to shoot that weekend and will be checking out the next morning. With that said, do you think that plan could work?

But then you'd have to pay the double room rate...hmm. I would maybe contact your travel agent and see if he/she has any suggestions. My photographer and my mother and sister were thinking of only staying for two nights (neither ended up doing that, but still), I checked with my TA and she said it would be okay and they could still get perks and have it count towards the room total. Maybe your TA can pull some strings for you or suggest how to swing booking those extra nights on the tenth room.
I know how you feel - we had just enough rooms to meet our contract too.
