Danitree - I bet the checklists and to-do's are making your head swim at this point! Quick question for you...how far in advance will you be there before your wedding day? I asked Ana about a tasting and she told me we could only do it if we were there 5days in advance. I keep finding all sorts of inconsistencies between what Brides are telling me on the forum and what Ana is telling me....just curious! Goodluck with all of your lastminute stuff and safe travels!

Does anybody know if there are dress codes for the OCT restaurants?
Also, I would love some input on how you ladies are planning your wedding ceremonies. We are having a symbolic ceremony on the lobby terrace there on January 19 (we're going to the courthouse today for the legal ceremony!), and I need to pull together a program yet. Your help is appreciated.

I know they are busy with multiple weddings a day, but is it normal that we haven't gotten anything with 2 1/2 months to go? Any advice would be great! Paula is our wedding coordinator.
I am getting married at the OCT in May, and I am in the same situation as you are -- I haven't received very much information from the resort about weddings there. Angelica is our WC. My emails go unanswered, and when they are answered, it is in very stilted English, she doesn't provide the info I requested, and I really don't understand what Angelica is saying (she probably doesn't understand my questions, either!) That makes me nervous, I never thought the communication barrier would be that bad at a resort of this type. I would love to see their literature/brochures, etc for everything wedding-related so that we can begin to finalize plans. I hate waiting until the last minute. You are even closer to your wedding date without much contact from the resort (scary!). If anyone does have the forms, I would love to see them, would you please post somehow so that i could open them?
I know that QueenBennet, in post # 1722 posted 3 forms for you to look at. That was very nice of her to do -- were you able to open the 3 attachments? I tried to open them, but was denied access since I did not pay the $30 fee to become a bonafide member of BDW, or contributed at least 50 posts to this forum. I can't afford to pay a $30 fee, I am saving every dime for the wedding. Since I am relatively new to BDW, I haven't made at least 50 posts yet, and will probably never reach that goal.
Like you, I would like as much written info on the weddings at OCT also, and hope that somewhere in this thread or other threads, I can scrape up the info that I am seeking, since it obviously is not going to be provided by OCT. I am stunned that you are so close to your wedding date, and they really haven't contacted you yet!!!
This forum has been a terrfic help with all the tips and other info I have collected on OCT so far. But I still need more info, too. Lets hope that someone posts that information in a format that even non-paying members (or newer members with under 50-posts) can open. If/when I get anything from OCT, I shall forward it to you, and hope you will do likewise. My email address is email@example.com.
Good luck to you and all the OCT brides out there! I feel like I am just drifting around alone out here...

@Kimandsky - The ceremony can be performed in english. I was told that not much can be added to a civil ceremony in order for it to be legal. I can send you some of the wording if you like.
