sorry to be asking so many questions but getting answers from you is just quicker and you are so full of knowledge. I really appreciate it.
so did you already know the cocktail reception was complimentary and so was the canapé preset and the hotel picked those out for you or did you pick out the 5 different ones without realizing it was complimentary and then they just comp you at the end.
also was there only a max number of guests that was comp or they comp the all the guests?
Sounds like Lolita (admittedly) got more free than even she had expected (bonus!!) but every piece of literature I have read in leading up to the event states free events are for 40 people included and you pay over that. Remember the tip to use your 40 for all adults in your party and THEN add your kids as they are cheaper! I must say though, on my detail sheet I have a cocktail reception booked immediately following my ceremony on the sky deck and the price for 60 guests is showing as $0.00 as a default, though it's likely because I haven't chosen a package for that yet (I won't - and will leave it as a free event as soon as my room block loads. My invites only went out a week ago, so my block will look sad right now! Hahah.... Though I'm happy to note that 27 people have already RSVP'd and booked!
As for who gets the free events- that's something your GI certified TA may have a hand in- and may not be the same for everyone).... So don't quote me on that as I'm working with a GI TA and I don't know if yours is as well. You will meet the head cheese at the BDR... When do you go again (sorry I had forgotten you haven't been!).... A good idea is to write all these questions down and ask your WC directly when there,,,. And then simply email Miami and say "as per BDR I am...."
Your WC should be sending you a revised Detail Sheet attached to every conversation/ change she makes (at least mine does which is awesome!).... Whenever we add anything or I spot a mistake (they are human), I send a quick note- asking for the changes, and I get a new clean version of my detail sheet back. But don't worry... A Miami wedding coordinator is not going to "mess up" your wedding... They are really just a helper until you get to the resort. It's once you are there working with the actual onsite WC that the magic happens. Be kind, know what you want and how you envision it, bring lots of notes and questions and they WILL make it happen! I haven't read a post in this thread (and yes as part of my research I read it all), that hasn't confirmed that Miami makes it stressful but onsite gets it all to come together.
FAVOR: can you, when at the BDR measure the white gazebo on the sky deck for us brides? @murmel
doesn't have the true dimensions since the change on the official thread and it would be amazing if you can get the basic measurements (height, width, depth and any other useful ones) of the gazebo so that we can have the proper size from which to order fabric! I don't know why I didn't do this when I was down there last month! I thought it was already posted but it wasn't!!
