    Can anyone tell me when a coordinator or someone will get in touch with me or if I should reach out?  We are booked for April 24th and I really haven't heard anything from anyone except the confirmation, menu options and budget planner that were all emailed to me.

    Thanks

      Well learned my lesson the hard way. Spent $200 to ship two large boxes via UPS to the resort and they are now being sent back because I had starfish and shells in the boxes. Very frustrating but thankful I'm getting the items back. Just thought I would warn everyone! Time to buy another suitcase!

      They say most of the planning is done about about 3 months before the wedding, and when you arrive at the hotel. We are getting married on the 28th of April, 2014. I have booked the photography, and dj for our wedding. We went to the resort to meet our wedding co-ordinator, Elisa. She was really quick to get back to me if it was something that was needed to be done, but some items take a bit longer, probably since they are not a priority. I wouldn't worry, they are used to planning weddings in a couple days time.

        I have starfish I want to bring down as well. Do you think we will just pack it in the suitecase then? Or do we need to be making alternate plans?

        i really wanted to have my wedding on the pool deck or terrace and everyone is concerned my 2 year old nephew is going to try and jump in the pool... can DRC put up any barriers that arent too noticeable?

            If you have her e-mail send her a message.  I have had a lot of contact with mine and although she takes a while to reply she has been ok. However since I sent my wedding planner in a month ago she hasnt given me any feedback from it.  My wedding is only 7 weeks away now.  My TA has been pushing for a response.  I still havent filled in my legal form and I am finding it really hard because I want to confirm an estimated cost.  The flowers I want are different to the standard bouquets and we are having the Weddings in Paradise with add ons as our wedding is only for 7 us included.

             

            I have read over and over that communication is an issue prior to the wedding but when you get to your resort its fine.  I hope this is the case for us too.

             

            Good luck

             

            Lou

                I plan on taking them in my suitcase now. I hope the customs at the airport will be more flexible since its for a wedding. We leave January 15 so I'll let you know!
