    It is strange they haven't contacted you on this... I will keep you posted!

    I'm going to email her right now to be reassured..

      How are your finalization process going? I hope everything is working out other than the WC stuff!!

      One question I wanted to ask you. Are your guests staying at Le Meridien, or at another resort? I am trying to decide what to do on accomodation!

      Thanks!
      I still have a lot of little things to take care of, but I'm trying to stay calm.

      Le Meridien offered $199/night for my guests, but at the time Expedia had $179/night. I told my guests they don't have to stay at the same hotel. Instead I provided the map of nearby hotels so they can see what best fits their price range. However, right now Expedia is having some sort of a summer sale so rooms are around $140/night. Due to this sale majority of my guests will be staying at Le Meridien.

        My guests and us are staying at Great Parnassus nearby since Le Meridien isn't AI. I'd love to keep in touch with you! I've only found one other Le Meridien bride!

          Thanks for the info. ipodgirl, I also got a rate of 138 per night to stay at Le Meridien this weekend. I guess my biggest question is whether I should choose an AI or non AI for the guests.. I would like to stay at a resort together so that we can do stuff together... I am hoping this site visit will answer my question.

          Jenny, having a wedding at Le Meridien and stay at an AI resort is a great idea. I think I will explore that option as well. Thanks for the tip.

            I was wondering, did you guys choose a package for the reception menu? Have you done tasting? I am hoping to have tasting when we are in Cancun this weekend, and I was wondering what you girls decided on the menu?

              Yes lets keep in touch! I'm so happy to find you here :) I don't feel so alone now.

              We picked Le Meridien because we're big fans of starwood hotel & resorts. We picked:

              ceremony: Beach
              cocktail: Gazebo Terrace
              reception: Gazebo

              Hors d'Oeuvres (Alpicus)
              Mayan Buffet

              My FI made the decision since I'm really not sure what's what. He grew up in Costa Rica so I'm assuming he knows what he's doing :) Please do let me know how food tasting went!

              I also added a wedding cake (tiffany box looking cake) even though dessert is already included.

                Wow Jenny - I hope you hear something soon. It is a pain to hear that you now have to explain all of your stuff to someone else and hope they have the same vision and can be as acommodating as the other person was. I hope things work out.

                  Thanks for the info ipodgirl, I am really really looking forward to the tasting!! We are considering Le Meridien for the same reason you have! Starwood! and also, my friend from Cancun highly recommended Le Meridien!

                  I will let you girls know how my site visit, meeting with Jessica and tasting goes! I am so excited and nervous at the same time!

                    I asked Clara about the tasting and she said we could do it the week we go.. but ya know... I trust that the food we pick, regardless of what it is will be good. I can't wait to hear about your site visit!!

                    Ipodgirl (whats your real name?) - I also will have my ceremony on the beach. Clara showed me an area that still has enough sand *lets keep our fingers crossed for no hurricanes* My cocktail will be in the loungy area:

                    And the reception will be in the larger gazebo. I can't wait to see your pics! I found a bride online that recently got married there and her pics are amazing!

                      I love the lounge area for the cocktail! I will make sure I check that out. I am expecting to have around 40 guests, and I would like to have the wedding on the beach and small reception at the small gazebo area.

                      Other than Le Meridien, I am checking out Aqua, Marriott (both JW & CasaMagna) and Paradisus. Kinda funny how I am only checking out one AI resort. We will see how everything goes. I will take Lots and Lots and LOTS of pictures!! Hopefully by the end of next week, I will have a resort set to go!

                      Jenny, I noticed you live in New Jersey! I live in Jersey City, Newport!
