    I am curious to know what your resort/hotel/venue did that totally blew you away (in a good way)

    What was the best thing that they did for your wedding that you didn't expect and for your guests?

    Wedding
    Our resort took the decoration of the reception hall to a level I didn't think was possible, all of the linens were perfect! I did not expect that each table would have champagne buckets at every table that were draped in proper linens.

    Guests
    Everyone had a bathtub filled with water and petals, and a box of coconut (like bounty/mounds) chocolates. My guests were wowed!

      That's great! My hotel did nada for us ~ NA-DA! lol Seriously, the Marriott PV just does not care. We did not have the ceremony there but we brought in 25 guests and they knew we were getting married. Nothing back in our room on the wedding night... never anything...

      We got married at Las Caletas though and they did everything perfectly, including a cold bottle of champagne waiting for me and my girls the day of! Loved that :)

      I will say our HM hotel did a cool thing for us! We stayed at The Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios, JA and they sent us a tray which included 1) a letter of congratulations from the Manager (looked hand signed) with a $50 gift cert to the spa (which we put to use on a couples massage lesson!) 2) Ice cold champagne in a bucket of ice 3) yummy little dessert plate and separate fruit/cheese plate. Was very, very sweet of them! After our previous experience, we felt so touched at this token of their acknowledgment of our wedding/honeymoon.

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

        This is a cool thread. I am anxious to hear what everyone else says.

        Amy-I want the coconut chocolates-yummy!

        Jamie-I can't believe the hotel didn't do ANYTHING. They should have at least sent champagne or chocolate covered strawberries!

            My resort had great service. Our resort gave dh and me bride and groom all inclusive bracelets to wear. whenever an employee at the resort (and i'm talking almost every employee we saw) would see our bracelets they would ask about our wedding and offer our help in anyway possible. then they would remember us everyday we saw them. One morning i was out taking pics of the various wedding ceremony locations and reception locations so i could post them here for any girls interested in our location and an employee saw me and came up to me and walked me over to a location and told me the exact time i should take the best picture of the beach ceremony gazebo, he told me when the sky would be perfect and the waves would be crashing behind. i thought that was pretty cool of him to stop in his busy day and help me with my pictures.

              This is a cool thread. I'm excited to see how the hotel staff treated everyone and hoping that mind will do the same! :)

                Ourr 2nd resort, where we spent out honeymoon The Valentin Maya, totally blew me away. I wracked up about $500.00 in spa treatments that I charged to the room. When we checked out they said "thank You for chosing us for your honey moon, the spa charges are on us" I couldnt believe it!

                      The night of the wedding, they decorated our room with tons of rose petals and gave us all the floral centerpieces from the wedding to put in our room as well.
