Lol I'm sure he'll only have eyes for you love.gif

I'm considering changing our reception site to Zavaz Plaza.  I'd love to see any pics if any of the married ladies would like to share how it was all set up!

 

 

 

Did you get pics? I have some from My WC

I keep hearing about a spreadsheet.  Is this something your WC shares with you?  I haven't actually started planning with her yet, as I'm not sure on where to start.  I feel like I need to find my BM dresses first b/c that will dictate my color scheme a bit.  This is the dress I'm thinking of ordering, but it's from China so I'm a little concerned about it.  I think it's really pretty though.

What have I missed?! How's everyone's planning? I miss all you old married ladies and B2B's :)

 

 

Welcome Back! The only new thing I have to report is everyone LOVES our invitations and got them so I am a happy camper right now!

Very pretty dresses! I would share some concerns as well about ordering them from afar. I have had a few girlfriends order things like that...some have been fantastic, some not so much. Try finding a review of the seller/dress designer and see what others report. And as long as you have a good seamstress at home, minor changes shouldn't be too hard to change, if it's not perfect! Good luck.

So technically, there might be 4 beach options?!  I'll take lots of beach pics to help us figure it out.

 

 

There are a few spots. I remember one is the yoga area, so the head table is usually set up on the wood deck and then the other tables on the sand (that's what we were told). Then they also said for smaller groups you can set up towards the premium building. But they suggested that to a maximum of 5 tables. Then there's the beach bbq area.

Good luck with the move! Hope everything goes smoothly and things slow down. Just yesterday I realized it's September....where did the summer go? Sigh...

Jamie,

I was told by my TA that #26 on the map is where I am  having my beach reception. Thanks for taking pictures for us!

I think there are 2 (maybe 3) options for beach reception.  Do you know how many guests you will have?  I can take pictures of both locations just in case.

Murmel, thanks for sharing.  I have read some good, some bad but I was having such a hard time finding a dress, I figured I'd give it a shot.  I only ordered one to begin with and I made an offer for less money which they accepted.  So, fingers crossed that it will turn out descent!!

I believe it said like ten days from the time that they receive the money.

I thought I had hit the comment about the yoga place to comment on but I guess I missed it.  My WC said the yoga place is for cocktails only.  :(

 

Are there any beach locations where you don't have to rent the dance floor?  Does anyone know if it's cooler on the beach, than at the Zavaz Plaza?  That's my only concern.  I want to be able to dance and party it up without looking like a sweaty pig! :o

Ugh, are any of you using Destinationweddings.com?  I feel like I was given wrong information regarding rates.  I already had to fight to get my rates to where I was quoted.  Now, FI and I were gonna get the premium swim up suite (was told it was $760.00 more for the both of us) ~ Yeah right, just got the rates and they are like $1000.00 more per person!  How am I supposed to figure out a budget plan when everything I'm told changes!!! Soo frustrated right now, and really not able to enjoy planning this wedding.  smile41.gif

That sucks that you're given wrong information...I am using destinationweddings.com and I LOVE our TA....Do you have the email or anything written where she told you the original price (the $760)...send that back to her and show her.  If it's  big enough concern for you, ask to speak to a supervisor/manager...that's a big difference in price.

Msmarmar, what kind of experience have you had?  I know you say you love yours.  I'm just wondering what the difference is between yours and mine.  Can you give me some examples of how yours has helped you so far?  I'd greatly appreciate it.

She's just really nice and helpful....whenever I have a question she will always call/email (I'm a much bigger fan of email) within 24 hours (but generally within 8 hours or so) with a detailed explanation.  Even when she went out of town, she let me know response time might be a little longer./..but still replied.

 

She has already managed to save us over $2000 with the room upgrades/and the free wedding package (we are not staying in a premium suite, but because we are staying 14 days...they let it pass)

Then....there was a whole thing with switching to El Dorado for 7 nights....(Jaime...sorry..I wound up using my TA as she made this happen..but thank you so much for your help with the Friends of Paradise info) at the same price I was given by the Friends of Paradise program...she managed to get them to approve the upgrade at both resorts and still saved me a couple hundred dollars on that.

 

If I hear of anything "extra" that someone is getting...she will try to get that for me...not always successful....but it's always worth a shot...

 

And with so much time before my wedding..I am confident that there will still be sales and promos that I will definitely qualify for.

 

Her name is Beverly Tanner if you do decide to switch or anything......

 

Hope everything works out for you
