    We went with an oceanview room for the wedding...I'm trying to convince my mom to get a suite :) or I'll just keep my fingers crossed for an upgrade :)
    Ana just came back and told my TA she could get us $119 a night (per person) or $218 for me and my FI for our site visit... Are you kidding me? That isn't a promotional rate. WTH? Did she give you the smallest, garden view room for your site visit?

      When are you going for your site visit?

        We are not doing a site visit, but for the wedding we were able to get rates of $155 per person and luckily we got airfare for $294 round trip from Chicago... very cheap!!!

        I booked with Apple Vacations and the good thing is that Apple does their own promotions. For groups, every 25th (maybe it is 26th) person is free. So if you are going to have 50 people there, atleast you and your DH will be free... which allows you to spend money on other things for the wedding. We were able to get this and the promotion that Dreams was offering at the time... (every 6th room free).

          When you say you are getting 115 per person you mean per night for what kind of room?

          I have two people flying from Chicago and the flights I have looked up are outrageous what airlines did you book with??
          Thanks

            She told me when I first asked to let her know right away so she could see if that rate was available the weekend we wanted to come down. It was $90 per person per night for a maximum of 3 nights I believe. I'm assuming she's giving us the smallest garden room for the site visit but we don't really care too much - since it's a super quick trip (flying down friday night after work and leaving sunday afternoon)

              We went down Jan 31st.... I am a BIT STRESSED! Did Ana tell any of you that they were moving the wedding site to the opposite side of the beach where the kayacks were She told us they were and NOW she just wrote an email saying mgmt didnt approve the change WHAT? She told us that it was already in the works! I would have never booked if we knew this? I have already had people starting to book ... Please tell me she told you all the same thing HELP! im so fustrated! I dont want to get married on a beach RIGHT NEXT TO A BAR AND SWINGS! She even went as far to say that they were cleaning up the space that had shrubs that were on the side of the hotel. She is saying we MISUNDERSTOOD HER! I was with a another bride and our Fiance's and we ALL didnt make it up!? I am PRAYING that this will be cleared up with an email to the manager of the resort. Clearly there is a HUGE Misunderstanding!!

                ASHLYNN & BOO- THE NOVEMBER 2010 BRIDES:

                I know you are getting married before and after me in November. Did you either of you pick a PHOTOGRAPHER I am bringing Nick Carter who has won THE KNOT awards for the past 2 years! He is located in Westchester NY and is very REASONABLE and his work is amazing! Check out NICKCARTERWEDDINGS.COM JUST AN IDEA.. I know someone is going with Erin Medina (she does great work but seems pretty pricey!)

                just a thought to check him out!!

                Janine & Pete November 11th Bride! :o)

But I'm a big fan of photography.. and I feel like to maintain our budget I either can get the photographer I really want, or the DJ - but not both. And I feel a little selfish because I know our guests would enjoy the DJ far more than they will about a great photographer being there!

                  What are your thoughts and what are you going with?
                  Ashlynn, We can share a photgrapher and he is not that expensive!!!! OH and you have to get the DJ!! email me jfazzina@aol.com

                    Chesley- Who are you using for a photgrapher?

                    I just heard from Ana that it will cost me 650.00 to rent the PROJECTOR for the welcome party?? OK - this is INSANE!!! Again this has to be a mistake...
