    Ok... So we've FINALLY managed to book our wedding... :) HURRAY!!! April 14th 2010 at Playa Costa Verde in Holguin.

    What sorts of things should I be asking before we get there?? I've made a list (attached) of some questions specifically relating to the wedding package, but can anyone else think of anything else I should be asking? I just don't want to be emailing the wedding coordinator every day with additional questions! I'd much rather have one large, comprehensive list to ask one time.

    Thanks ladies! Sorry if its already been posted somewhere.

      If your WC is anything like mine, it's easier to get answers when you ask 1 question at a time! LOL I send her a question a week and she replies... when I send her big sets of questions, she rarely replies.. :/

          Wow - your list is pretty detailed!! Looks great. The big things for us to sort out were the date, time and location of the ceremony as well as the reception location and menu.
          We got married at Playa Pesquero in Holguin in April. There were 3 other weddings that day and we were the last. They had a horse and carriage for us as well that picked up the groom, best man and groom's mom first, brought them to the beach and then picked up me, my maid of honor and my mom and brought us to the beach, so there was no overlap in DH and I seeing each other before the ceremony.
          However, our WC who had our list of requests for decor, etc. was not present during the actual decorating of our wedding site. I know this because my SILs were watching a few of the resort staff assembling everything and they did not follow my instructions! I think it is due to the fact that they book so many weddings in a day (perhaps your resort won't) and they are just taking one set of decorations down and assembling the next set. My SILs were able to assist the staff with fixing the decorations to my specifications which was awesome.
          Holguin is beautiful! You will have an awesome time.

            Sarafish, what did you do for decorations?? I know where we are going they have an arch, and obviously I'm asking what they do for decorations... but I don't want to go crazy and bring tons of stuff with me... thats not really the point of a DW, IMO.

            Thanks!! :)

              I used teacherbride's (Connie's) ideas of pink flowers and greenery on the arch. When we met with our WC, I requested that the archway be decorated that way and didn't bring any ceremony decorations from home.
              As for the reception, DH and I made luminaries (my planning thread is on here somewhere) and I found some seashells and tiny yellow paper flowers at Michael's. We gave that stuff to the WC and she arranged for our reception table to be decorated with those things. I know a lot of girls here do a lot of DIY decorations, but I am not that way inclined. As it was, the few decorations we brought really turned out nicely and the staff did a great job of setting it up.
              My one tip would be to be specific!! And don't be timid about your requests. By nature I am a "ok, it's fine" type of person so having my SILs there to take charge of the decorating of the ceremony site was great, especially since I wasn't there beforehand to make sure everything was going according to my plan! It really helps to have someone in your group who is able to supervise how things are done so you can worry about more important things!
