    I wrote my contact in Miami about 5 or 6 months before and she told me I had to wait three months.  I wrote her back and told her I just wanted to get my events booked and I wasn't going to hound the on site WC with questions.  Then she gave me her email address.

For the brides who haven't booked yet. Start booking b/c the salon fills up fast. My bridal party is split up between both salons and different times. I hope I gae myself enough time to get ready!

        I know I booked at least 5 months in advance and at the time the contact was Reyna and she said 3 months before my wedding she would send me a confirmation number b/c their system cannot reserve anything more than 3 months. Like clockwork, I got an email from Karla regarding my confirmations. This was the first time they contacted me before I contacted them!

          It's funny that they keep saying that, because I got my wedding number and all of my location reservations before I signed the wedding contract or room contract... and I refused to sign the contract that said 3 months; I changed the language to read "Assign a WC as soon as possible"...something like that.

           

          I also did do a site visit before picking MP and met with the on-site wedding sales rep, so maybe she pulled strings. No idea.

            You do have to wait 3 months before you pick, I didn't know my MP coordinator until just recently. I tired contacting her a month ago with no response bc she is probably taking care of other current brides. I am sure if you ask your Miami contact a few times, she might assign you one but that doesn't mean that the MP coordinator will get back to you ASAP. Sorry but be persistent if you really wait to contact the MP. :o

              If the photographer is the owner, it is considered bad etiquette to tip. I think my dad gave the carriage driver a tip but I'm not sure. Which reminds me, when we passed the bar that is on the way to the golf course they stopped so we could have a drink. I should have had another glass of champagne. At first my dad said no, but then changed his mind, so they went back around for us.

               

              Rae - We brought chair sashes and table runners. It made a huge difference. We also had freeze dried flowers. I didn't mention them and we weren't searched.

                Mocha,

                The last time I was in Cancun, it was 2 years ago and when you wen through security you pressed a button and if it was green you could just go through with your bags and if you hit red they searched your stuff. Do they still do that?

                I am packing a big box of OOT stuff so I am worried I am going to hit red and they are going to make me open my box.

                 

                So the carriage driver let you have a drink at the bar? That's hilarious!

                 

                Another random question, was it difficult to get off the carriage with your dress and heels (if you wore them) I am all paranoid of falling off the carriage. My sister bought me like 4 inch heels! Not sure what I was thinking when I told her I liked them bc now I am all scared of busting my a$$

                      Does anyone know if a wc can be assigned to 2 weddings at the same time or like an hour apart? I just found out my wc has another wedding at 5 and mine is at 4! How can she take care of both of us? I am starting to freak out!
