Christy335-I know Miriam has been on vacation-but Kim should be able to get back with you.Are you calling the Chicago office?
As far as the tips-everything we are paying for has a tax and gratuity added to it (18.25%)-so I am assuming that includes the WC. I am not trying to be cheap-but an additional tip adds up!

Mastistlye- your list looks good! I can't think of anything else for the music.
Also, everyone except the photographer is staying at the resort. We are paying $125 for her to attend. (keep in mind we're doing AI, so it may be different if you're not doing AI).
Are you using the DJ's speakers for your ceremony music? (i.e- what are you playing the Ipod through?)
I guess I'll just figure out the tips later...it does seem silly since we're already paying gratuity, but I just don't know about the wedding planner and Dj and Minister...hmmm...

Hi everyone! I just took a look at the updated website for MDC and noticed that it is now advertised as All Inclusive. We booked December of 2008 for our trip this coming December. Has anyone heard about this? Does the grand opening rate I paid include this AI? The regular rates seem the same as what I remember from previously, but I could be wrong.
I called Miriam last week and asked her about this ... if you booked before AI you can stay the way you booked or you can do AI for $125 per person per day. This would add $2000 to our trip! (and almost double the cost!!) I questioned her on this, because it sounded a bit ridiculous to me. I mentioned how the prices seem exactly the same as the grand opening rates and that if we did all inclusive we would be paying more than someone booking now... well, Miriam then told me that now the rates on the website are per person per day for the room/villa, where as before, it was the one price per day for 2 people. I don't know what you guys think of this, but it seems like they are trying to rip people off! It's not even really AI like other resorts ... NO all you can eat/drink, it's limited to 3 meals 3 snacks and bottom shelf liqours and beer, premium liquors and all wine comes at a cost. It just didn't seem worth 2 grand extra to us. So we are staying not AI. I asked if she could send us a sample menu and bar list so we would have some idea about prices but she said she didn't have access to that. I just hope they don't end up charging us $5 for a bottle of water.
Also, has anybody else been getting the "I haven't forgotten about you" emails from Kerry? I have gotten it like 5 times and she keeps asking me for updates, but I have emailed her atleast 8 times now with updates and questions but I get no real response. Just the standard email that I assume she is sending to every bride.

We are doing the AI rate even though we booked before the resort became AI only. But because we are having our ceremony and reception at MD Villas, if our guests are on the AI plan at the Cliffs, their meals are "free" at both resorts and we don't end up paying a large price tag on the reception meal. We are also doing a Welcome dinner and Rehearsal dinner which are included for all of our guests in the AI price they paid.
Has anyone used Front Page Band already? What do they sound like?
Thanks everyone, and happy planning!

Now on to photographers, I am looking at either Sungold or Michael Saab.
