Yes that's my plan i'd like to go back to the room with the bridal party take our own pics & freshen up before we all make our entrance.

Im thinking maybe I make an itinerary for the group on how the days going to go? or at least for my bridal party so everyone knows where they're supposed to be.

Plus theres gonna be a few toddlers in our group so it'll be a good break for nap times & such loll.

I hate being rushed so I guess its good I have so much time??? hopefully it works out well loll

Ya I was thinking that, I can always ask what are my options for a cocktail hour. although I think id rather have the extra reception hour versus cocktails.

 

I know a photographer who said the same thing, and she takes pictures throughout the week as well...I was contemplating that as an option, but this photographer's pictures aren't the greatest.

I booked with transat too, it was the easiest for a group booking & we got the same, 16th for free. I thought for sure we would have 16ppl booking easy...but now I dunno because so far everyones taking their time dropping a deposit?? im hoping the invites give them a memory boost to put in their deposit.

 

yup I think it was sunwing with the 11th free, but I think they charge your whole groups deposit in advance on your CC...I didn't really like that option.

 

PS did ana send you the flower catalogue? or not yet?

Hello Ladies,

 

I'm planning my wedding at Ocean Coral for May 2015. I just emailed the resort to confirm our actual wedding date, but am wondering how long it will take them to get back to me?

 

I just went back and read your other posts about having trouble getting deposit confirmations, etc.

 

I will be patient and see if I get a response. I'd like to get invites sent out in the next couple of weeks...

 

I'm excited to be joining this thread!

Hey Hanna, welcome!!

 

Im planning my wedding for april 2015.  Have you handed in your deposit at all the papers that come with that?  (i know we forgot the credit card plating our first try!)  It took almost 3 weeks for them to get back to me and that required two phone calls to them, finally the last one to ana directly that got the ball rolling.  Apparently they've just had some staff turnover so i assume thats where the delay is coming from.  I would give it a couple weeks and if no response start calling.  Keep an eye on your credit card statement too, they charged ours and then never got back to us until i started making calls.  

Anyways looking forward to having you on this thread!!

 

@@aborgesbride  - itineraries are a great idea i think.  As for the rest of the ppl attending your wedding im sure they can just make an announcement after your ceremony as to where and when everyone should be back for the reception.

 

Were kind of nervous about ppl not putting in their deposits too, we got an "early bird" price so apparently that means that full payments are due by end of oct which is so soon!! i am afraid that will deter people from booking with our TA and maybe just risking it at the last minute…oh well,what can you do.

 

i havent gotten a flower catalogue, I figured that flowers would be something we would decide on once we got to the resort, but maybe not.

Where is the information/documents for the deposit? I am just in the beginning stages of actually getting down to business and planning. My TA only gave me the email address for Ana and told me to send her an email.

I am getting ready to send the wedding reservation form and credit card authorization... even though I haven't had any contact with the wedding coordinators at the resort. Is this the best way to go to get the ball rolling? I know Britt mentioned she waited a long time to hear anything back and finally had to call them directly. I just want to have confirmation of the wedding date, all the other details I am ok with dealing with closer to the actual date. What was your experience with confirming your wedding date?

My experience was a bit different... I went through my TA, who originally contacted the resort WC and got the ball rolling for me.  I was cc'd on their emails, and sent my credit card deposit to the OCT WC myself, and the WC sent me a confirmation of my wedding date within days.

Thanks @@MrsSheppardToBe

 

I feel like my TA should be doing the same thing, but she told me to contact the resort WC directly.

 

I'm just going to send the forms in and if i don't hear back in a couple of weeks I will have my TA reach out to them by phone.

 

Other OCT brides, what was your experience with confirming your wedding date?

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
