This is SO tough. We've been using a TA that is my friends Father-In-Law..he hasn't been very helpful and I think he gets REAL frustrated with my questions. Which I know..I have a LOT - but I don't understand how it works. So frustrated..
I'm not sure how we'd tell him we'd like to work with somebody else..ugh..
We thought he'd be great cause we know him - but he's kinda being real short with us. He's about to go on vacation so maybe he'll be better when he comes back - if not I might have to contact Kim!!

Reserve the MasterSuite and then I think its 30 days before travel final payment will be due ( everyone else will pay as well) this is when your TA will help you!!!! I think the room was 1502! I would have to check for you to make sure! But you have to email a million time, because they still put us in the wrong room....we had to transfer....
As for favors for guys: we didnt give them any extra ( we gave them extra stuff in welcome bags: ie flip flops) we were going to do the cigars but I spent so much on the welcome bags we didnt. I also had candles that I made fpr each table, so guests could use them while on vacation. (they had our monogram on them!~ (added to the tables too!)
Some guests will use the travel agent and some will book sep. I think most used the travel agent for round trip transfers.. which was good because then you have all the information (times flights for each guest)
As for welcome bags: I seperated each group of bags by dates of arrival and had travel info and left welcome bags daily....
So the trick is to reserve the Mastersuite..GOT IT!! Good to know - I would have been SO mad if we weren't able to get it. Just form all the brides talking about the mix ups..them promising things they aren't delivering I didn't want to screwed!!
They deducted it after? How did you do that??
Pashmina's is a GREAT idea for favors for the ladies..what about the men? We were thinking cigars..
I know you've told me before..but what was your room number - I think I'll request it!! Did you request it to your WC?
Can you tell me how you planned your trip? Did you work with a local TA? Did you do a package deal flight/resort or did your guests find their own air?
Thanks again - sorry so many questions! You've been a WONDERFUL help!!
