Would you recommend a different place to have the cocktail hour because of the bugs? If so, any suggestions. Less than 3 months and counting, I am sooo excited

My Next question - DJs - So far the only one I have heard by name that I can remember is DJ Mannia (thanks Boston). Seems great - any other suggestions if he is not available? When should I book him??
Thanks Ladies - I don't know what I would do without your great feedback! Lisa

I had the WC book the DJ. I emailed him after just to go over details. I would tell the WC sooner than later that you would like them. DJ Mannia is the dj the hotel uses I didn't research any others. You could always email them too just to be sure of availability.

I have FINALLY decided to go with the Excellence for my wedding. I have read the thread hope I'm not duplicating. My proposed wedding date is October 29, 2010
1. What deposit amount is needed to confirm your date and time?
2. Did you all book your resort and travel at the same time? I see the confirmation form I received from asks for my travel agents information. I'm still working on that.
3. Does the Excellence offer any 'freebies' I need to ask for?
4. Did anyone else work with Ana and how did you find her response time to your emails?
5. Can anyone recommend a GREAT travel agent? I'm in Baltimore, MD
Any advice you can offer to a newbie just starting to plan please share.

The WC at the Excellence tells me she has 3:30 pm slot available on the date on my preferred date of Oct 29, 2010.
Anyone know if it will be too hot at this time in October ? I don't want everyone to be sweating buckets.

I didn't have to do a deposit, but my TA had to send in a confirmation to Ana that we'd booked travel to the resort. We hadn't actually paid anything at that point, but she needed a confirmation from the TA. I don't know what she does for people who don't use a TA.
There are some benefits you get but it's based on how many rooms/nights you have booked. I forget what they are exactly, but they're on the website.
Ana is okay, I've enjoyed working with her....caveat: if she gets busy she will dump you onto her associates and their English is not as good as hers. She comprehends our phrases and slang and American wedding customs better than they do, IMHO. I had to get my TA to get on her a couple of times about that; esp because the associates gave wayyy different answers than Ana.
Also, advice that my TA gave me: DOCUMENT AND SAVE EVERYTHING! When the time comes, print off ALL your conversations and pack them. They could come in handy when you get down there if there is some sort of snafu or change or misunderstanding.
I hope some of that helps, and CONGRATS! *does happy dance*
