    We also are using Ivan Luckie so I'm happy to hear that he was pleasant.
    We didn't have a private reception but we did have to pay for extra chairs and we just paid cash so we didn't have to pay the fee.

    Hope that helps!!!

    Good Luck on your wedding!!! You are going to have an excellent time! Please tell Elena that I said hello!!!

        Wow... Congrats Amanda!!!

        Don't stress and enjoy every moment because it flies by! I found myself taking a few extra breathes on my wedding day and looking around to take it all in, I think that is VERY important!

        Happy Planning! Let me know if you have further questions!

          Oh... and as far as a videographer, I never had to look for one since my brother was mine! He is going to school for it and did a fantastic job at capturing our whole week and putting it on dvd. :)

            We have booked our wedding in conjunction with one of the leading tour operators in the UK for Jan'11. They have been chasing the date of the wedding for us to no avail.
            We have been chasing as we have some family / friends that want to make their own travel arrangements around our wedding date; but today we have found out that we cannot get our wedding date until August as this is when they are taking wedding bookings for 2011. Looking through other older posts I see getting a date has been difficult at times but wondered if any others waiting for their 2011 wedding date have been told the same?

              The same thing happened to most of us! That is just their policy, actually if you look into other resorts they have the same policy as well. We booked our resort on June 30th of last year and our wedding was in February so yes, you can see you can't book too far ahead. Don't worry, things will work out!

              If you wait and book the CAT you won't be disappointed! We had 40 guests in February and most of them are going back to the CAT in the future. We even were told by my aunt who goes to Mexico every 2 years and goes to a different resort every time that she will book the CAT again in two years! She is a hard woman to convince and she loved the CAT.

              Good luck with the rest of your planning.

                I have been told the same things, as I want to get married there in May/11. I know I should wait, but I want to send out Save the Dates soon and August is just too long!

                Did anyone send out save the dates without having the actual date confirmed?
                I can't remember if I read this in this thread, but was anyone able to convince Elena to book early?
                Also did anyone hire a minister from outside the resort to perform the ceremony?

                  Hi L&C
                  I have already done my STD cards and just put the 2 week holiday period that we have booked on there with 'wedding date TBC' as we are travelling from England so people wanted to know the dates so they can start saving......with regards to moving the booking date forward our travel agents have said the hotel wont budge on this as this is their hotel policy; which obviously works so for this reason I'm not going to get stressed about at as I have every faith it will all come good in the end (fingers crossed). Just a bit worried we will end up with the holiday and no wedding as the worst scenario. Must keep thinking positive thoughts ........... and wait until 1st Aug when I will be straight on the phone

                    Me and my H2B went to the hotel about 4 years ago so we know how lovely it is - we have a few fussy ones in the party travelling with us as the holiday is already booked just waiting for the wedding date - so I'm glad its just as lovely as we remember.

                      Thats a good idea, I think I might just do that. I do think it will all work out too but there is always that thought that we might not get it!
