I feel like I was told we could not do a rehearsal dinner at the buffet restaurant?? We are approx 40 guests. This is upsetting...

Who is your WC? I would check again, mine told me there is not a charge for this and it was fine as long as we got there as soon as the buffet opens.

Hi I am new to this site and am just starting to plan a wedding at this resort. I haven't officially booked it yet because I am waiting to hear back from the wedding coordinators but I know I want to get married here! How long did it take for you to get a response from your first inquiry about booking a wedding? I'm so impatient! Also, I am debating a wedding either in late February or early-mid May. I originally wanted April but my parents already booked a 3 week vacation to Hawaii then. I would love to go in February to get away from the cold but May is cheaper and supposed to be nicer weather-wise. I would also have more time to plan. Any advice? I don't even know if there would be any dates left in February. I wonder how fast they book up. Does anybody have advice that they wish they had when they first started planning? Thanks.

We have just had my fiances uncle, his wife, and their 3 kids RSVP to the wedding, but they will be staying at another resort, I know there is a fee for guests from another resort, but Xhail, my coordinator, "reminded" me that only 10% of the total guests can be from another hotel, I didn't know this. So we have 33 (including ourselves and the 5 staying at another resort) so we're only allowed 3 outside guests? 

 

Has anyone else ran into this problem? It wasn't our intention to have people stay at another hotel, but they have another wedding to attend that same week so they're staying in cancun instead. 

 

We anticipate a few more people booking before the big day, still 7.5 months away, but i'm not sure another 17 will book. 

 

Do I wait until close to the final RSVP date and worry about it then? 

 

I haven't panicked over anything thus far, but this is a little unnerving.

We were told that anyone not staying at the resort would be charged a fee of 95.00 for a day pass.  I am guessing it is fine if you have  few more.  I was never told anything about the limit being 10%. Hopefully it will be just fine!

Thanks for the info mellie14, I knew about the $95.00 but also wasn't aware of the 10% limit, must have been in the small print some where. I emailed my travel agent, she said she would try to contact Xhail and said "don't panic" haha, so i'm going to let her handle it for me :)

Ladies, I'm debating if I should hire a DJ or have an ipod/iphone with pre-loaded music instead. Does someone have experience, suggestions? also, is DJ only playing the tunes, or entertaining the croud as well with games, etc.

 

Thanks!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
