Hi All!!

 

Ok, sorta switching the topics here :)

 

How about packages? what packages are you all going with? I'm still undecided. I am doing the 'legal' paperwork here at home so I wont be needing to pay for all the legality stuff for the ceremony. Therefore, I'm considering the Coconut Packages, which is stated as 'free' as long as you book 25 room nights, which is easy with 12+ people

 

Has anyone heard of taking such a package like the Coconut, and adding something to it? changing it at all? I asked Victoria and she pretty much said you cannot change anything. I find this hard to believe.

 

Anyways, just looking to see what everyone has heard from the resort on these packages.

 

Thanks!

We are going with the coconut package, and that is not true about adding to it. Xhail told us we could add anything we wanted, right down to choosing the cake design! I did have a fit today when she quoted me $150 more for an acoustic guitar than she orignally did. Needless to say, after I informed her I still had the emails with the quotes, she told me she would make sure it was the same price as quoted before.

Per Mrs.Smith point keep all your emails about prices and what you have agreed upon. We are a week away from the wedding...so excited!

And have had to send her at least 10 emails that she sent us during the process.

I ended up writing a master events list for the wedding with all the locations, prices, and times for the week that we were there and we went back and forth until we agreed upon everything. The good thing is now we will not be upset, hopefully, once we arrive.

Hi guys....haven't been on in a while. Just wondering what other people are doing with sleeping arrangements the night before the wedding. I kind of wanted to go the traditional route and sleep separately up until the wedding night. Thoughts?

I think some of the packages provide you with a separate room for the night before the wedding, I am going to do the traditional route also. At first I wasn't, but I think it'll be fun and I'm going to have my bridesmaids stay with me and share the excitement!!! :)

Greetings all...I am planning a January 2011 DW in/arround Playa del Carmen. Originally I was thinking the Gran Porto Real but when the TA got back to me with pricing the Palace is waaay less expensive right now. I just got through all of the thread and appreciate the info you all have shared.

 

Anyone have any words of wisdom to help me make the choice? What was your deciding factor?

 

Christa
