    Maybe there already is and I don't know about it, but I was thinking about all the time I spend and emailing I do to find out wedding package pricing and pricing of all the add-on items. Wouldn't it be nice if we all could come together and share all the information we've obtained? I would at least check into so many other resorts if the information was easily obtainable. Some resorts don't even have the packages prices on their websites and a bigger majority don't tell you anything about the additional items. What do you think? Is that something people other than me would appreciate?

              I think that makes a lot of sense. It would be great if there was a standard spreadsheet we could download so that it looks uniform and makes it easy to compare apples to apples,

                Alot of that information is posted here, by previous brides. But there isn't one place to compare. That would be a great idea, but not sure that anyone has the time to step and and take the job. Especially since resorts prices and packages change so often.

                  I too wish there was something standardized or one location for it all. I wish I knew how to create websites - I'd do it myself! (OK, thats a LOT of work and I have other things to do but I could TRY) I posted the information I've gotten (only two resorts) but it didn't take that long - just copy/paste! I'm slightly OCD so I really like having things in one place and in order....
