    Hello all!

    We are so pleased to finally have our perfect destination and have our wedding date booked! I think that was the most stressful part of this whole process and I feel like we can now move forward and let the real fun of planning begin!!

    Our Wedding is booked for NOVEMBER 10th 2010 @ Our Lucaya Reef Village FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND...BAHAMAS!! We got a fantastic AI Group Rate that is very affordable ($1100/person & $530 for children)!! So far 30 guests have made their deposits!! So exciting!!

    We are currently working with a WC-Janet Albury of VIP Services and 'And the Two Became One'...after much debate we decided to go with a Local WC vs Resort Co-ordinator...and I am so happy we did. So far we are very impressed with her work! I swear she is the only one on that island NOT on island time! Her emails are so prompt and really has so many choices and ideas for vendors!! She is always sending me samples and links and is really staying within our budget! She is fantastic!

          Hate to be nosey but the AI is for how many days?? I'm going tomorrow to scout and am going to Our Lucaya Reef Village on Thursday. Also what made you choose an independent WC?? I'm still so new and am so nervous about booking and making horrible mistakes! Thank god for the forum!

            Hi JenArge! You're not being nosey at all. Our Group rates are for 7 nights from Canada and not a direct flight from where we live...we have to do a quick stop over in Toronto..it is also low season and the end of huricane season..regardless I am very happy with our rates! We do have to pay a little more for Ocean View rooms but most of our guests are staying in traditional island view rooms. Our Lucaya Reef Village is one of 3 hotels that make up Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort. This is the least pricey and geared towards families but you do have access to the entire resort. For AI, I think we are given a sheet that states what restaurants we can choose for meals and it includes alcoholic beverages and non-motorized sports. Apparently, this resort is now a radisson and use to be sheraton/westin...I just got the feeling that the resort co-ordinator didn't really know what she was doing and there was a delay in response to questions I had..she changed her mind a lot and just wasn't sure. Maybe she is new there. Her name is Faye Knowles. She seems nice tho. Please keep in touch..I would love to here about your sight visit! Good Luck!

                I am considering Our Lucaya Reef Village myself, but I was a little hesitant myself because Faye Knowles is very slow in returning emails. Can you advise who you are using as your wedding coordinator?
