    Jen1407, I didn't think that we actually heard from or spoke to the WC until a month or two prior to the wedding. I'm curious as to what everyone is speaking to them so much earlier about. Can you elaborate the types of things you spoke with her about so early?

      I only started talking to Chandlyn in May - just 2 months before our wedding. The only thing I did in February when we booked our trip is book the salon appointments with Renova spa.

        Most of the questions we had came down to how much things cost so we could create our budget. We spoke with Chandlyn about the private dinner reception vs the poolside reception, renting the disco for a private reception before it opens to the public, contact information for the florist they use to upgrade our flowers, reserving space for our rehearsal dinner. It may be a bit excessive to worry about this stuff so early but I would hate to leave it and not be able book it. Bit of a control freak I know, you should ask my FI LOL!! My FI and I have never been away on a vacation so we are not sure what to expect. And to think our first trip away will be for our wedding - some would say we are crazy LOL!!! but we have always talked about going away to get married. The less stress I have to deal with in Dec/Jan the better so I figured why wait.

          Thanks for the information. I guess I'm much more laid back with this since it's my second wedding (his first). I figure I will go with the flow of things but I guess it's a good idea to inquire about the rehearsal dinner and schedule with the spa. We are having an AHR one week after we return so that is where more of my worries will come into play I presume.
          Thanks girls!

                My very long review is posted! There are lots of pictures as well!

                Please send your questions along - it was perfect and I really believe that all your worries about the resort will be relieved once you arrive there!

                  I too have been a little stressed after reading some of the negative reviews about the change in WC. However I havent made any set plans for the ceremony, reception and flower, or extra yet.  We are still about 3 months away from our date.  I am hoping that within the next month i will be able to start planning that. 

                   

                  Past brides...when the WC contacts u, to start putting together actual details about the ceremony, reception and flower and such, is there some kinda formal form u fill out so that they know everything that you want, or is just via emails back and forth, just shooting off what you want? I just want to feel secure that they are recording my requests, as i send them through email...any insight is much appreciated :)


                  ROR Jamaica Nov 17th 2010 -- 37 people booked!!!!! woohoo

                    Unfortunately it was done all on email.  I itemized my emails and made my own lists though and it was a huge help when I got to the ROR and had the meeting with Antoniette.  I can't stress enough how important it is to bring all email correspondence, especially  if you dealt with Chandlyn.  

                     

                    I was so surprised that we were deciding things the day before the wedding and everything was perfect on the wedding day.  I am such a planner but I had to reign it all in and go with the flow because it was really out of my hands until we got to the resort.

                     

                    Good luck!
