-We brought our own Cd with music on it. We had music they could play before the ceremony while everyone was being seated, our music for our ceremony, and music that they played after our ceremony while we enjoyed the champagne. I would think if you dont bring a CD they would provide some kind of music for you.
-I beleive you can do a rehersal the day before. We had the option but chose not to. We rather just went with the flow and everything turned out great.
-Our a la carte dinners were pre reserved so when we got there they gave us a paper with all the times and dates. We didn't ask for this so it was a nice suprise. However, that being said, all our reservations were super early, like 6pm, which kind of sucked as it would have been nice to have a few later on.

- With all inclusive you can usually make reservations once you get there, is there a way to make them before you go? If so, How many people can be included on the all inclusive reservation?
- With OOT bags should I just put the guests names on each of them so they can put them in the room for me?
I had my hair and makeup done at the spa and I was really happy with the work they did. I don't even remember the girls name that did my hair but I took her pictures and she basically did it exactly the same. As so makeup, I don't normally wear a lot of makeup so I told her something really simple and neutral and she did just that.

Most travel companies have a policy that if you book early in advance and the price drops they will refund you the difference. That happened with us. The price dropped about 6 months before our wedding and we all got to take advantage of the lower price. I would say ask your guests to book as soon as they can as that way you can get a clearer idea of how many people will be there. I know for us we had to give our deposit once booking but didnt have to pay until november (we were married in January). We paid about $2000 per person for 1 week. We flew out of Calgary and chose a direct flight for a little bit more money versus saving $100 for a two stop flight.

My biggest question right now is how early is too early to get our guests to book with our agent. We want them to get the best price and I am worried that if they sign on now, the price will be lower if they just wait a few more months. I have said this to my travel agent but I feel like she just wants to get as much as she can and won't tell us what the lowest price we could expect to pay per person is. Can anyone tell me what their guests paid for a 7 day stay in January? I have been told 1400-1800 per person and I have no idea if this is reasonable, cheap or expensive. I noticed some of you were married this past January, if any of you can reply with the rates you and your guests paid and what month you locked in those prices, I would really appreciate that! Thanks
