Cecelia responded to me, but did not answer ANY of my questions about... well... anything. She just said "congrats" and "most important is choosing a date" (I paraphrase...) -- isn't that what I did when I sent in the request form?? Hmmm... I really thought this whole destination wedding idea was supposed to be less stress, but the correspondence is gonna be the death of me! HA!
But I just need to relax and get to one thing at a time. If Cecelia wants a date, then a date it is!! I appreciated you answering my questions - it definitely makes me feel better!! Thanks beachbride2013!!
Be sure to also confirm your ceremony and reception location as well as times. Most brides want the reception at the wedding gazebo and if another bride snatches it up first then you are out of luck. That is what happened to me. I told her in my request I wanted it there, but it did not happen because I thought that was enough. I needed to have the contract done, so I would tell her the date and time you want and also the location. Then when she sends you the first contract be sure to sign it and send it back.
