So we had our ceremony on Friday (still down here until Thursday) and what everyone says is true...don't worry about things so much on the front end. From the spa services to the wedding planning to the ceremony, everything has been beyond perfect!

We had planned for the wedding group to party there but they closed it the night before. So we ended up partying with Janel's wedding party in the Sunrise lobby where they had music and dancing so it all worked out. :) Its been a wonderful experiance, We upgraded our room to the concierge level this trip and I would definatly recommend it. They did so many extra touches, 3 times a day I would come into my room with a new surprise! It was great!! Ok back to my vacation.

Had a near heartattack a moment ago. I received a call from Anna at Hard Rock Hotel about my upcoming wedding. Um I didn't think I reserved a wedding there so I called the number back and it goes to the Palace Resorts Wedding department. Fortunately Janina answers (let me just tell you how much I love her and how incredibly helpful she always is!!) and she double checks yes we are scheduled to get married June 9 at Moon Palace at 5pm. Ok, whew! Then I ask about Cristina being our new coordinator since that's what she told me last week but that's again changed to the onsite coordinator Zaray and gives me her email address to get in contact with her along with telling me she will be emailing her as well. This makes me feel better about the whole thing.

 

BUT......does anyone know anything about Zaray? I don't believe I remember hearing her name on the boards. If anyone knows of her and her work please let me know. I have been pretty laid back thus far but we are nearing the 60 day mark and I feel like we need to get the final details down on paper.

 

Thanks ladies!! Happy planning!

AWESOME planning thread!!!

Here's the link http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/78847/coconoirs-planning-thread-picture-heavy#post_1748658



 


Welcome!  I would just keep checking in to make sure they have everything.  I would also keep everything you have in writing, print it out and bring it with you down there!  I will hold them to everything they said!  HAHA!!  I am also Jewish and I would not want to have my ceremony (if I were doing a Jewish ceremony) in their catholic chapel even though it is beautiful, it's just their "catholic" chapel.

I was, up until recently working with Beatriz and now I am told I will be working with the on site coordator Kalena who has not returned any emails since last week to confirm my information. I have about 7 months but I just want everything to be confirmed so I can focus on other things.

I have spent the past 2 months emailing back and forth with Beatriz all the add ons and package details we wanted to incorporate. I have already made a deposit to reserve the locations and decor through Zuniga. Should I be worried or they will have all this on file? In my experience it has been one thing to another working with Palace resorts. Just recently I was told I never reserved the Tucan Gazebo and they wanted to move me to the Catholic Gazebo when I informed them that I am having a Jewish ceremony WTF? after some fighting Beatriz promised it was ours and we signed the contract. Now im worried that since she is gone they may move us anyways.. what do you think? At one point we wanted to cancel and move to Dreams but decided to deal with it and stay strong. Your comments have definitly put me at ease and I relay all to my fiance. We are sticking it through as you ladies have already done so.

 



 


Congrats!!!  So happy to hear and I can't wait to hear more!!!  I know it was stressful for you before you got down there!

Hi ladies!

 

Hope you are all doing well!!!

 

I had my shower this past weekend and that was good  :)

 

And yesterday everyone's payments were due.  As it turns out my step mom is not going now, which means we lose 7 days as my youngest sister is now staying with my dad instead of in her own room.  :(  We had convinced one of my friends that we would pay for 2 of 3 nights for her, if she could come.  We did this as that would put us at 61 nights and the benefits of that outweighed the little bit of money we put forth for it.  But now we are at 51 nights with NO hopes of reaching 60, which we had planned on for so long.  Long story short this alters so many of our plans of what we wanted to do. Crazy how one person not going can change things so much!  I am at a point where I just want to get the show on the road!  :)  On a brighter note, everyone that is going should be fully paid now!  :)  YAY!!!

 

Oh and my BM dresses are finally in!!!  Can't wait to see them!
