    Coco I think Ncordero is right about the packages/food options.


    On another note I finally got pictures of centerpieces WITH prices. Since we can potentially spend %&*#^ $500 on centerpieces atleast this will give me an idea for budgeting and weight out my options. Help me decide whether its most cost effective to bring my centerpieces or get them done by the resort. Of course prices are subject to change for 2013 but at the very least its an idea. If your interested email me at trivera5521@yahoo.com and I will respond back with the PDF.

      I really do think they prioritize their responses based on when your wedding is. Marlene has been pretty responsive lately, which is still shocking to me considering the fact that it used to take weeks for her to respond when my wedding was more than a year away. Now that it's less than four months away, she responds within a day and is now asking me for more details. So don't fret, once your day gets closer, you'll start getting your responses in a more prompt fashion. Btw, after the judge was confirmed it took her another 3 weeks to send me an itemized bill for the 30% deposit...even after I harassed her with emails almost everyday. In the meantime, this forum is your greatest resource! Hope that eases some of your minds.

        Hi Ladies


        I know I have gone from posting all the time to not posting or responding at all. To those that have PM'd me I have not been ignoring you. I have been going through a mini wedding crisis that has caused us to change everything. I have not been able to get a passport for my son. And his father who has not seen him in 3 years, being the  that he is has refused to sign the paperwork to allow him to travel. I have been going back and forth with the courts and the passport office and have gotten no where. Through the courts it takes foooooooooooooor ever. I started this process back in November. But after a huge blow up with his father 2 weeks ago, I realized we are not going to have it in time.


        Now with saying all of that. We are not getting married in FT Lauderdale, FL and honeymooning in the DR. I'm sure you can imaging how stressfull, irritating and frustating this has become for me. We have been going back and forth with BBPD because the deposit is non-refundable and we want to have it applied to our stay instead so we don't just straight lose our money. But I have gotten nowhere fast with that. so we essentially threw away $900 that we will never get back. And seeing how we are paying for the wedding all by ourselves and we are closing on our house next month, now is not the time to be throwing away money.


        With saying all of that. I will respond to the PM's by this weekend. I have just been really busy, basically starting from scratch planning this wedding.

          Just wanted to follow up with some of you who are still waiting on the wire transfer and contract deposit form...I finally got mine yesterday, which was exactly three weeks after my date and time were confirmed. So they are coming, but just know you may have to wait a few weeks. :)

                Thanks ladies. You are all so sweet. Well. I got the best email today. Susan actually emailed me saying that they are going to refund the money and asked me for our wire info. Can you say happy and relieved. The past 2 weeks have been really hectic but it has been panning out. moving past square one. And getting excited about closing on our house next Friday. Ladies it all works out in the end. We will still be honeymooning in the DR so all is not lost. Just kinda rearranged a bit.

                    Octbride I'm sure you will have a beautiful wedding regardless of this change of plans!


                    I finally got the wire info and sent the deposit... I am now waiting on the final confirmation. I am probably going to do a site visit on August-September. How long have you girls stayed there when you did your site visits? 1-2 days? did you get to taste the food/cake and pick flowers, colors, etc?


                    Thank you!!!

                      So I know this is def not the forum for this but I just feel like I know you all so well LOL. Have to tell someone LOL. We went to Kleinfelds on  Saturday and not only did they choose my group to film for the show "Say Yes to the Dress" but I said yes and finally found my dress! I was certain I wanted a mermaid/trumput style gown and was pretty sure I def didnt want anything princessy but after I tried this dress all that went out the window =) It absolutely made me feel beautfiul, sexy and a bride! Like a dummy we were all so wrapped up with the camera crew no one took a pick of me with it on and it wont be ready til March 2013 ugh!! But in any event here is my dress....Thanks for listening guys!!
