You sound like you're freaking, which was me a few months ago. I'm used to all communication being efficient and their response time literally drove me nuts. If you can swing a site visit, I would 100% recommend that. If you can't, don't worry. The one thing I did realize as a result of that visit was that they note EVERYTHING. Response time stinks but they really do know what they are doing and are (almost) a wedding factory. We also liked that this resort is relatively smaller compared to other places we've gone to before and makes it easier to find your guests/friends at the pool area.
We got a travel agent and got a group rate for our guests. Anyone who wanted to book (and almost all our guests did that) got that rate. Get a travel agent, they'll make your life a million times easier.
We sent all our friends STD info on how to book their trip. We sent them the official wedding invitation but ended up changing the ceremony time after we met with our WC on the site visit. We made a facebook group and sent all our guest any info like that on there. Most were on board, others were word of mouth. They understand that some of the details may not happen until later so were very understanding.
Good luck with your planning!!!

( the other person who emailed me the confirmation cc'd her on all of it ). it is VERY tough communicating with them. now i want to send out my invitations and put the time of the ceremony on them but sicne the date is different im not sure what time my ceremony will be, i assume it will take weeks before i get an answer which reallly makes me nuts. such simple things i need answers too and cant get them! just curious to compare some of the costs with u guys. . . right now it seems 3 nights for my wedding is costing my guests around 1200 each. im wondering what kind of group deals you guys got so i can compare.... thank you
