      Ahh - that's right. Sorry, I saw that in an earlier post - whoopsie :) I am waiting for confirmation from the Renaissance for our wedding next March. Sitting on pins-and-needles waiting for them to get back to me so we can get the ball rolling with invites and other plans. Tentative wedding date is 5 mos from TODAY so I am anxious about getting things settled!

        Can anyone tell me if there are nightly shows at the Westin? I heard that certain hotels put on free shows after dinner for their guests but I can't seem to find out if the Westin does this.

          Hi,

          I've started planning our Nov 2011 wedding for the Renaissance and was hoping to connect with some brides who are also getting or who have gotten married there. We are just starting the process of getting pricing from our travel agent.

           

          AnnCam2011 did you hear back from the Ren yet? Are you booking your wedding with the resort before telling your guests or at the same time? You must be getting so excited.

           

          Thanks,

          Jenn

            Westin has a magic show nightly from 9 pm -10 pm for $35 p/p that's all the shows they have.

              Hi Jenn!

               

              I did hear back from the Ren. I was caught in a communication-love-triangle with the Ren and my TA which was not making anything any easier. I ended up calling there 3 weeks ago to be sure the date we wanted was still open, then emailed my info. Didnt hear back for 2 weeks, then I called this Monday. I talked to Juney the WC directly and resent the email. He said they had been having IT issues, but he was able to provide me with an estimate about a half hour later. I realize now I need to buy a calling card the next time I call down there, since on TMobile it was about $10 for 5 min call!

               

              We just have to figure out a few more details and I am hoping to send in our deposit no later than next Monday. I am so anxious/excited/nervous to be taking this step. It's been kind of like an out-of-body experience for me since I have been waiting for this for so long. My fiance and I have been together for 11 years and just got engaged at the end of May. Crazy that in about 5 months we will (finally!) be married! Whew.

               

              My friend is a wedding photographer and has traveled all over the world - Germany, Peru, Italy, all over the US. He did a wedding at the Ren in '05 and said it is absolutely the best place for a DW. After hearing this from a very dear friend who has all this experience, we made our decision to go with the Ren.

               

              Good luck with planning. Stay in touch - it would be nice to have another Ren bride to talk to - bounce ideas off of and compare notes! I try to check in here at least once a day, so I should be around. :-)

              Best,
              AC

                      Hi Aruba Brides!

                       

                      We're considering a wedding either in the Bahamas or Aruba in the fall of next year. We've been to Aruba before and it was AMAZING, but I'm not sure if it will be affordable enough for a DW. I was hoping to find an all-inclusive resort to hold the wedding and for our guests (last time he and I stayed at his timeshare at the Marriot), but from what I have seen and heard through this forum, I like the Renaissance and the Aruba Surfside Marina for a wedding. We're looking for a location off the beach but with a great atmosphere,but something we can afford! I'm hoping to have around 40 guests.

                      Does anyone have any idea if the Renaissance has an all-inclusive option? It's not clear from the website. And I'm not sure what my budget for the wedding and reception should be REALISTICALLY.

                       

                      Thanks for your help!

                       

                      Erica


                      God Bless!

                      MissE
