    Hey Eyeball17 i dont think she's replacing Yamina (at least i hope not). I just heard from Yamina yesterday so. I've had Yamina assigned to me since January of last year... our wedding is about a month away now and im really hoping she'll still be around! I may be the first bride on this forum to have the same coordinator throughout the entire planning process haha!

      Ok, that is good news! 

       

      Are you doing a legal or a symbolic ceremony?  We are planing on doing the symbolic ceremony.  Our travel agent wants to work on our room block and I told her we will arrive some time on 5/16/13 for a 5/18/13 wedding.  She is telling me that is not enough time and I need to get there at least on Wednesday.  I thought with a symbolic ceremony there were no requirements about how far in advance you needed to be there.  AH!  I have already told everyone to plan on traveling Thurs to Thurs.  Do you know if I need to be there earlier or if a Th arrival will be fine?

        I was planning to have my ceremony at Seaside Grill but I spoke to Gina today and she told me they cant replace the furntiure and that only brown chairs can be used (the ones they normally use). I was under the impression that the chairs would be covered in white but she said policy changed and this is no longer the case... Just an FYI...

          I spoke to Gina and she said you can choose other main course but if you do so you have to tell her in advance how many chickens, beef, fish you want along with a seating chart.. i guess you would have to ask your guests in advance. the sit down menu looks pretty bad, i revised it and mixed and matched but am still nervous. i am wondering if buffet is the way to go... still undecided and my wedding is less than month away!

            Ok.....maybe they have more than one WC....because Yamina "introduced me to" Gina today as my new WC.

            They make me crazy with all of the back and forth.  I was able to confirm the amount to reserve one of the restaurants for our reception.  As we are having a smaller party (about 25 guest) it is more affordable for us to host the reception in one of the restaurants as opposed to paying or a separate reception.  I think we are going with El Patio for the reception.  I asked today if it was availabale for my date....keeping fingers crossed!

                  Her name is Lorena Arvide.

                   

                  Any one have her?? I've never heard her name mentioned on here before....

                   


                  I actually did a site visit over the weekend and met with Lorena, I used to have Evangelina as well but am now switched to Lorena. She was very nice, very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions (and I had A LOT lol)...so don't worry your in good hands.

                   

                  For the ladies who haven't seen the resort yet, its absolutely beautiful!!

                    I am arriving on a wed evening and getting married on friday. My TA also was worried that wouldnt be enough time so I made sure to check with Gina before booking. She said it was fine and we would be sure to have our meeting on thursday morning.
