It's really not that far from one part of the resort to the other, and I'm pretty sure there is a shuttle that is going between the Palace and the other parts of the resort.
When we stayed at the Colonial we found we ate most of our meals at the Beach & Caribe restaurants (except for a couple a la cartes) because they were way less crowded and the food was better.
If money's not a problem for anyone in your group then sure have everyone stay at the same place, but for me people weren't willing to pay the higher prices for the Tropical or Colonial but were happy with the prices at the Beach & Caribe - if they didn't have those other options they wouldn't have joined us - so leaving things open for people to make their own decisions like that was really great for our group - otherwise we probably would have had like 15 people instead of 42!
Hope that helps to see where I'm coming from a bit...

Melissa, how did you organize the 'meeting here for a drink', 'dinner on the caribe side' etc...? Did you plan it out all in advance and leave an itinerary? Or how did you get in touch with everyone to make sure they knew the plans?
Also, for the OOT Bags, did they distribute them to all the rooms, or did you have to find out where everyone was staying and do ti yourself?

I distributed the OOT bags myself because I knew approximately when everyone would be arriving - but you can arrange to have the front desk distribute them as people were checking in (our WC offered to arrange this for us, but I don't remember if there was a fee involved or not).
When it comes closer to your wedding you will get some forms to fill out and at that time (if I remember correctly) you need to put down all of your guests and where they are staying along with any room preferences for each of them (ie. double beds, king beds, etc.) and the dates they'll be arriving on so you'll know in advance where everyone will be anyway.

i didn't really like using them (i found them to be rude, and super high pressure when it came to choosing your package) and would have preferred to have erick rodriguez stay at the resort for a night so he could have done our wedding, not just off site photos...but hindsight is 20/20, right?
i didn't like that all of the pictures were so posed either...i really loved that a lot of erick's photos were
here are erick's photos
