    Thanks girls!

    Those vows do sound terrible!
    In my experience once you are down there they will do everything to help you. You might have to flash some $$$ if they don't do what you want. lol!
    I can't see a problem with changing the vows, after all it is OUR wedding.

    good luck!!

    Tracy when did you book your wedding? I am scared to book too far in advance in case it is more expensive.

      I actually paid the 200 dollar deposit to hold my date back in Oct. We are now in the first stages of booking our rooms. I just did it yesterday actually. We got quotes from our TA back in Nov as well, and we waited till the new year to see if the prices would drop as she said they might, they only went down 10 less per person, but she gave us that price anyways. If your TA quotes you something now.. they may not have the rates for 2010 yet, but ours told us if the new rates came in higher that she would honor the lower original price she quoted us. And if its through Signature you end up booking through then they may be doing the Sept rate deal; something to do with by Sept 15th if the quote is lower than originally quoted you get the lower quote... so I would just talk to your TA if you have one yet and see what she/he has for pricing yet... I personally wasn't to worried after she reasurred me with this information so its totally up to you...

          I'm baaaack!!

          OMG girls... it was awsome.. the on site co-ordinator Vania is awsome... I saw weddings at lots of the locations.. and many types of receptions...

          I am SOOOO glad I did a destination wedding... I got married at 3pm and was in my dress until midnight visiting/partying with family and 'new friends'

          I will try and give more deatils tomorrow, but it was great.. and out of all the locations the Pier is the most private...

          p.s. LOVED my photographer!! already have pics back!!

          catch you tomorrow!

              I don't even know where to start...

              The co-ordinators are great.. they work VERY hard!! and are very sweet..

              the pier is half built and lends itself to AMAZING pictures!! Our photographer was Eduardo from Mexican Weddings.. WOW great guy and spent extra time with us.. When he showed up at the room prior to the wedding... I was running behind... so him and my Dad chatted for about 10mins.. I think this made a big difference... Treat the photographer like a friend and not a 'paid employee' and he will go above and beyond your expectations... One regret.. I wish I would have had more pictures with family... very few of me and my mom.. :-(

              but ask me questions.. anything.. will give you details...

              It was Truely awsome!! I saw some bridezillas.. yikes... but hey relax.. it'll all be okay.. they do this up to 3 times a day.. they know what they are doing...

                Wow! I love your pier pic you posted on your name now!!! WOW! That really does make for some great shots!

                Ok so I have a question for you...you did the private $11 per person reception correct? Was this on the beach as well? And how great of a meal was it?? I to want to see if you enjoyed this meal for the price or if we should be looking at going to a higher price point?? Also I was going to ask how the translator was and if you guys used a dance floor and did any speeches how it all went?? Wow I think I will have a whole lot more questions... but I will start with these ones!!! Thanks Nicky!

I have seen only 2 sent to me from other brides but when I try and google it nothing of the sort comes up... any help would be appreciated!

                    We did the 'free reception' the food was AMAZING... all of the guests who got day passes were sooo impressed... I think any of the food will be excellent.. I don't think you would have to pay anymore than $11 a person since the free food was wonderful... (what do you get on the menu for the $11??)

                    translator? for the ceremony?

                    no dance floor or speeches... although we saw lots of weddings with the dance floor... it looked fine.. (just black plywood laid on the sand) the reception is right beside the swing bar.. and so that party is very close to you reception... also the evening entertainment is very close by.. I noticed when that entertainment started the music from the wedding reception just got turned up to try and drown out the entertainment...

                    be aware: it gets chilly and windy at nights there.. even though it's 20C with the humidity and wind.. it can get chilly. Only a couple nights was it fairly calm where the wind wasn't an issue blowing through the tented areas.. one of the brides was really upset since she didn't know to expect that...

                    I was really glad we just did the international arrefics for the reception.. the set it up beautifully...

                    If you don;t have too many people I saw a reception at the beach gazeboo... the set up inside the gazeboo with the booze and the bar and then tables around the area... very nice.. but no room for a dance floor.. although it made for a private reception area since there was no other guests around...
