    Hi ladies!

    I am looking at the PF and was wondering - how much did you pay total for the wedding (and how many guests) if you don't mind my asking?? I'm trying to compare to a larger resort. TIA!

                Ambiance package #2 and candle package #3. I didn't have a lot of flowers, so I went with a lot of candles. I thought it was perfect.

                  Awww Mel, I just saw your slideshow up on the Playa Fiesta page...looks great!! You were such a beautiful bride. Everytime I watch the PF slide shows I get teary...guess I am just a big sap!

                  Did anyone do a signature drink? It looks like it in some of the slideshows and pics. If so, how did you do it? Budget for so many per guest or do them on top of the open bar during the cocktail hour?

                  I can offer my support on the room issues too! We are over our room requirement but we have already had two couples pull out, who had already booked rooms, which we then had to fill with other guests booking rooms b/c we were responsible for them. We also had a couple book two rooms...each of them booked a room without realizing the other had...which we are now responsible for and need to fill. Luckily my mom and dad have not booked yet so we can cover it with them. The rooms have definately been the most stressful part of planning for me and I have not even had to decide who gets what room yet.

                  One recommendation I can make, from lessons learned, is to hold a few guaranteed guests back...we asked my mom and dad and sister and brother in law to hold off on booking their rooms. That way if you have people who have to cancel their room reservation you will have people to fill them. If anyone else backs out we will still have my sister and brother in law to fill the room requirement.

                  We have had quite a few of our good friends decline do to expenses, time off of work, etc...but I guess we have to just remember to see it as part of chosing a destination wedding. The perks by far out weigh the negatives.

                  Question for the PF brides...was Adam lenient at all with which rooms he assigned you after you met your initial room requirement block? Did anyone have unhappy guests over which room they were assigned?/

                  As always, thanks for all of the info :)

                    Good question. I've been wondering the same thing.

                    Putting people in suites can be tricky sometimes and I don't want to give anyone just a standard room. But someone has to get those rooms, right?

                      Hi girls.
                      Yes, they were very flexible... I know that this was the most stressful part for me too. It all worked out though:) And remember- they will hardly ever be in their rooms bc the whole hotel is yours for the week:)
                      So while I was doing my hair trial DH went around and started assigning rooms. I had over-ride power but he did a great job- and it was one less thing on my plate.
                      I also had made a priority list... and possible groupings. Each room in the suite has a fridge, big bed and there are at least 2 baths in each suite. Keep that in mind. Hope that helps.
                      Try not to worry- it'll be awesome, I promise:)
