Hi Nat! Welcome to the site :)

 

Rebeca is just the wedding coordinator. She can't help with the room stuff.

 

Start working on a wedding date with Rebeca because they tend to book up quick. Make sure the open dates meet your travel budget.

 

Contact a TA on this forum to help you get moving on the rooms, airfare, group discounts, etc.

 

Once you have that stuff in progress either work with Rebeca on the wedding details or hire an outside WC. Dazzling Details does amazing work, there are a couple of threads on them if you do a search.

 

Good luck planning and do lots of searches because there is already so much info on BDW!

Hey ArmNat....I'm not using Rebeca but I am using Kristin at the Dazzling Details and she is a life saver. She is handling everything except for the room block - which I used a TA for as Dreams direct had higher pricing and wouldn't budge. Kristin isn't cheap - but compared to a California wedding...she is very reasonable. I'd highly recommend her - it's made my life really easy. Let me know if you have any questions.

 

I'd email her for her pricing as it may have changed since I booked mine earlier this year...I am having about 80 people.

Thank you all. For those that do not mind, would you let me know what Kristin of Dazzling Details is charging so I just get an idea, even if it is not current? I have emailed her, but as you can imagine, I am anxious. I was not expecting everything to move so quickly. Until a couple of days ago, I thought I had until June . . .LOL

My 2 cents? A bonfire rehearsal sounds great! I don't think it is rude at all. Activities are nice, but maybe not every day so people can "enjoy" their vacation.

Welcome Nat! We were originally wanting Feb 2010!!!! Make sure to check out Lauren's photos and thread! You can definitely find a lot of info you need on this site and thread.

 

Couple things to think about....

Rebeca won't run your card for your deposit for the wedding date until you and your FI secure your reservations through the resort, so make sure you are ready to book your trips as soon as you get a TA.

Also, have you thought about photog yet? Bringing one with you? or getting one in PV? There are great options for either!

Welcome Bags and/or Favors.... I'm personally using Mishka (she is on this forum) and I know many other brides are too. Her maracas are georgous! and I think reasonably priced.

Also use the DIY forum!!!! I probably check it every day!!!! This will seriously save a lot of time! A lot of my welcome letters/itinerary/etc are from templates I stole from other brides! We love to share, so don't hesitate to Private Message us and ask!

And don't worry about the timeline either - the main thing is to just get your date and your travel plans set. Next, STDs, invitations, and probably photog. Depending on if you use the WC or Rebeca at Dreams, it pretty quick to set everything up.

Rebeca has been awesome for me (and from what I can tell for most brides on here!) so it just depends on your budget! DD does amazing work! just check out their blog!

The Dazzling Details

But I'm doing a lot of DIY projects and my Mom is very craft savy, so I'm just using Rebeca. I think the beginngin booking is the toughest part, after that, it's fun!
