    I had the same problem for the date.  I initially emailed Rocio in April 2010 wanting to reserve our wedding date for the end of March 2011 and I had to wait a few weeks since they didn't have the new calendar.  Don't worry... they usually allow up to 3 weddings a day.  You should be able to get the date you want.

     

    I agree with EllaBaja1983, they are pretty strict on the 3-day rule.  We are arriving on Saturday and getting married on the Thursday (althought we initially planned to arrive on the Sunday, you have to be there for 3 business days prior to the wedding).  We are doing the legal ceremony since we didn't want to get married here before leaving.

      Stephy, what is your wedding date again?  I know we've talked about this, but I can't remember!

       

      (We are doing the legal ceremony first...tonight actually.  I've felt so awkward all day!)


      Married the love of my life in April!!

        Thanks for the responses ladies! I guess I will just suck it up and hope I get the day I want. I actually got ahold of Rocio on the phone last week and she said that som far she hasn't had a lot of people even requesting dates for 2012, so I guess I am a little ahead of the game. Stephy, when you contacted her in April did she tell you when you should call/email back in May? I would LOVE to be the first person to book so I can get first dibs!

         

        We are putting down our deposits for the GP tomorrow. SO excited!

         

        And congrats Ella! It's a big day for you!

          CONGRATS!  You're officially married by now :)  What a neat idea to do it on Valentine's day, too. :)

           

          We are getting married on March 31st.  I CAN'T WAIT!  I'm beyond excited right now... although, freaking out too a little bit.  We have a few things to take care of still, but other than that, we are ready!

            I can't remember exactly, but I know I had to wait about a month before contacting her again.  When I did, she still didn't have the dates available and had to wait some more.  It drove me nuts. :)  But in the end, the waiting paid off as I got the date I wanted, no problem at all.  I'm sure it'll be the same for you. :)

              Yes, we are officially married!  It was a very cool thing, and let's just say, I didn't want to put my ring back in the box last night!!

               

              I knew you were really close to April, but I didn't think you were part of April.  That's very exciting!!  We are almost done, just have to figure out how to get the music we want for the dinner/reception.   Are you having a private dinner after your ceremony or did you decide to do something different?

               

              Also, I wanted to ask you Stephy, do you hear from your WC often?  My WC left, and I was told I was getting a new one, but in the meantime I was to talk to Rocio...but I'm lucky if I get a response to my emails once a week with Rocio....

               


              Married the love of my life in April!!

                I had Ariadna as a wedding planner from the start.  Right before Christmas, she emailed me saying that she was leaving the resort.  Needless to say, I FREAKED OUT!  A few days later, Gabriella, Ari's replacement, emailed me.  She seemed pretty sharp... but then I emailed her, and never heard back.  I sent the same email to Rocio, and she replied within a couple of days.  Since then, I've been dealing with Rocio only.  She's pretty good at responding to my emails lately.  I guess when the date gets closer, she's much more on top of things.  I definitely did see a change as the date got closer.  I'm assuming it'll get better for you as well.  Althought, it is pretty good that she gets back to you within a week or so..  I had to wait much longer than that sometimes, a few months ago.

                  Ahh, so you are in the same boat as me, I had Adriana as well.  I've only been dealing with Rocio but I was told that Gabriela would be Adriana's replacement, she was jut in training.  What's been really bothering me about Rocio is that I'll email her asking a few questions, and she'll wait a week to respond, but tell me she needs the information right away.  I feel like telling her that if she would have responded a few days prior, we wouldn't be in such a YANK to get things figured out, like she's making it...

                   

                  She did email me last night and of course needs me menu options figured out ASAP!

                    LOL... It doesn't surprise me.  What probably makes a difference in my case is that I had almost everything figured out with Ariadna before she left.  All I had to do with Rocio was do a wrap-up of the decisions (which she already had anyways), send my seating plan and figure out a few last details.  I'm sure it'll get better as your date gets closer.

                     

                    I forgot to answer your question in the previous post:

                     

                    We are getting married at 3PM.  We are having a cocktail with appetizers and drinks (4PM-6PM) at the Sports' Bar Terasse.  We wanted something private and there was nothing they could do.  That terasse looks nice and there are (apparently) never anyone around.  We'll have a mariachi trio stop by during the cocktail. Then, we are having a private reception (7PM-11PM) at La Laguna.  We're hired DJ Mannia for the evening.   What have you decided on?  Are you having a private reception?

                      we had Ariadna also and I thought she was excellent at getting back to me. She left I send a confirmation of what she had confirmed only to be told no the wedding wasnt at 4:30 but at 2:30. I proceeded to send all of my emails from Ari that confirmed in numerous emails the time. Rocio did come back and say she would honor the time. I was not going to be happy. Just do yourself a favor and confirm everything for times,locations etc and take your documentation with you..  I know you have to be somewhat flexable but set the date and time in July for a June wedding. I just want what was agreed on.
