    Claudia also emailed me today that the 2010 menu is not out. Seems to be a little close to 2010 to not have menus out, does it not? If I had a Jan or Feb wedding I would be mad right now!
    Hello THAT'S ME! I have no idea what is going on.

Restaurants are subject to availability.

      I am glad you updated us on this. I have not been on that site since we selected our destination. This is crap! But really it doesn't matter because we end up paying for the guests for wedding night and then if you want a private function for the welcome party you pay for that too, so really for my group (4 day stay for wedding guests) they only have one other night to enjoys al a cartes. This does make me upset.

Our travel agent is trying to make some requests to the hotel but it doesn't seem to be working. The only other option is for some of the guests to stay at the other resorts (i.e tropical, etc) but I want to avoid this. I want everyone to be at the palace.

        That is a complete bummer! I really hope they get something worked out for you.

          Hi all!!

          My name is Stacey and we are getting married July 17 2010. I am VERY new to this site. Your information has been so helpful. Would any of you mind sending me some ictures of the different sites where were can have our receptions?
          Is any one thinking of having their reception on the beach? Or inside?
          Do we have to let our WC know ahead of time that we will be using outside DJs?
          Any suggestions were to have our ceremony

          Thank you so much!!

            For a bride that has had their wedding there could you please tell me how you handled tipping....
            Tipping the WC, Band/DJ, and wait staff? Approx amounts/etc? Also did you do it after the wedding or have your parents handle
            Thanks
            Laura

            has anyone received pictures or know what the bridal bouquets look like? I'm not trying to spend extra money on flowers since I can't bring them home with me, but I am curious as to what the flowers in the strawberry passion package look like. I have emailed them several times and nothing

              I think so....not sure. We did find a few more flights through cheaptickets.ca which is a US Airline as a last resort. The guests just won't be booked for my wedding group rate.

                Hi Sabrina, I did notice as well that our wedding dates are a day off! That is awesome and I hope we can meet when we are at the resort. I did have a bit of trouble booking with CAA and westjet vacations. we had about 20 rooms wanting to book and they told us there were not enough rooms too! way too stressful. Anyways our travel agent worked for about 4 days with westjet and finally got the first group booked. But we also have calgary bookings to still do and I am not sure how seamless that will go. There has to be enough rooms as it is still far enough in advance. We had actually phoned down to the resort when we had this booking issue and they were only at 40% capacity so there must be some miscommunication between the resort and the travel companies. I hope that everything works out for both of us.
                Talk to you soon

                Jenny

                  I looked through the book they use for bouquets when I went down for my site visit. I'm getting the strawberry passion too, but I don't think it matters. They don't use different bouquets for different packages. Anyway, they can do anything that is native to the area for no charge. Anything like colored cala lilies are extra charge (they said the white ones are not though). Just send them a picture of what you want and see if they can do it.
