FYI, this is the first I've heard of this. I have a 10/20/12 wedding and am kind of horrified... I don't know what to do, we put down our $2400 down payment and I don't want my wedding to be at a tacky rock hotel....

I am brand new to this site and found all of this thread very helpful!! Our wedding date is April 26, 2012, at Aventura Cove and I am such the planner that waiting to know details in driving me crazy! Does anyone have any information that they could send me? I am very nervous also because we have a VERY small wedding attendance, which is what we wanted, but not really sure how it is going to work. It will be just us and 3 other couples. Any ideas on how to arrange our evening/event? I would appreciate any help or information you can help with. firstname.lastname@example.org

I am brand new with a wedding planned on April 26, does anyone have any information they can share with me in regards to the details, options, locations and things of that nature? Our WC never responds and explained that I needed to wait until 60 days out before I review this. It's making me a little anxious!

When are you leaving the resort? We're arriving on April 28th! I would love to meet up with you there for a cocktail and maybe you could give me the heads up on anything you'd feel valuable.
I wish you all the luck on your wedding!

Message me your e-mail and I'll send you a couple that I have that they sent to me when we first inquired about the resort! They also send info regarding all the private function spaces I can send you.

I recommend starting several packages back on this thread. There have been a couple brides who have posted pics for me and they've been GREAT! And have answered a lot of my questions. I feel so much better after chatting with them.

Abby, I don't have a map of Aventura, but I honestly wouldn't worry about it. I initially wanted to include one in our welcome bags also, so I just waited until we got to the resort because they have maps already printed there. Also, upon check-in, there is a map included with your room key, so I didn't even put any in the welcome bags then because everyone got one when they checked in. I was SOOO worried about all the little details before I went and honestly, when you get there, you forget about everything!! I was regretting bringing so much stuff along with me because the resort was beautiful enough on its own and there was always so much going on with all our family and friends there. SO if I could give one word of advice, DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! I know it's easier said than done, but trust me, once you are there, all the little details will fall to the wayside and you will just want to be having fun with your family and friends.
I ended up packing stuff that we didn't end up using anyway...and let me tell you, that trip through the airport with all that stuff was NOT fun! We even had 6 people with us on our flight and I still brought too much stuff. So just thought I'd mention that.
Jennykay and other newbie brides...I would DEF read through this entire thread...it is VERY long, but sooo helpful!! I spent so many hours when I first joined the site just reading about what all the other brides had to say. It was always nice to see other people's pictures to get ideas. I know exactly how you girls are feeling right now with all the unknowns and not knowing what to expect. I was just in your position not too long ago! If there are any questions or any specific pictures of the resort you are looking for, just let me know, I may be able to help!!
One other word of advice, DON'T believe all the tripadvisor reviews you read. I spent so much time stalking tripadvisor for months before our wedding and was so nervous because of the reviews. However, we were completely blown away by Aventura, as were our family and friends. I think alot of those tripadvisor reviews are bogus or people are really hard to please. Everything we experienced was fabulous:)

Also, if anyone is interested, you can find some of our wedding pictures on facebook...it's under Amber Miller Snyder. If you go to my photos there is an album called Amber & Matt's Wedding. I also have TONS of other pictures if there is anything in particular you are looking for, just ask!

I am a bit nervous as well. I picked Palace Resorts for a few reasons, I am staying/getting married on the Cove Side, however I have never been there to visit. Reading these forums really puts you at ease about the whole process, however when I go read tripadvisor, just to see normal traveler reviews, it makes me very nervous. Most of these ladies are saying great things, so I have trying to avoid reading trip advisor. I just hope things go well and my guests are taken care of!!
