Your Welcome and thanks so much for the compliments.   I had to email him several times prior to him responding but don't give up.  Remember we are talking about "our time culturally and theirs"  So it definitely calls for a little cultural sensitivity, Patience and persistence ;-)  OH and Woosahhh's LOL

Thanks Coconoir1908...you are sooo helpful!  And all of your DIY is so amazing.  I was showing my fiance last night and even he was impressed (guys usually could care less about that stuff - lol)!  I am going to email Marvin again and give that a try! THANKS!

Hmmm...weird.  I sent him pictures and everything, but have never heard from him.  But, he has such great reviews on this site, I really want to work with him.  But, if I can't even reach him, then I'll need an alternative :-(  I will try again today!



 



You will.....

Also, quick question that I'm hoping someone will know the answer to! I've been to the Palace Resorts twice before and one of the best parts are the free resort credits you get! We are actually going to be using all of ours towards a wedding package, so wont have any to have fun with during the trip....does anyone know if you can "share" points? Like if my parents don't want to go to the spa, can they set up an appointment and gift it to us? I think I remember they actually check the number on your bracelets when you show them your yellow paper, but I can't remember for sure, or if there were any rules again sharing....Thanks!

Thanks for the info and responses ladies.  I don't qualify for unlimited events (not even close) but I still want a welcome dinner and a rehearsal dinner reservation at the restaurants.  I'm not happy about them wanting to charge me the same rate as a private event for that...

 

Might just show up on the day of instead.

This is my payment due date week, so I have been doing nothing but 'whooosahhh' all week.  I was on the brink of tears a couple times this week, but I have yet to let them fall.  Trying to stay strong and keep this all in perspective.  I just wish all the guests weren't driving me crazy with the indecisiveness!  But, I will just move forward as best I can.

I remember seeing on the PDF with the wedding packages that said that you can make a kind of wedding registry where people can buy you things like the spa or tours, so I am not sure if they can use their credits for that.. Probably not. But my aunt just told me that just by being a member (like if you booked as a member or through a member) that you get 2 free tours whether have the $1500 credits or not.

I was told by Karla (the spa manager) that I could use my credits for my bridesmaids' salon service (hair and makeup). So my guess would be that your parents can "buy" you salon services too with their credits.

I asked this multiple times to different coordinators (in case one of them gave me a different response, which we know they do), and I was always told that you can't.  That the resort credits are always for you.  BUT that wouldn't stop me from asking, just in case!  Maybe they'll give you a better answer. :)  Good luck!!

We had our dinner at El Caribeno.  It was for 18.  Normally, they don't allow reception dinners at El Caribeno (glad you got it too, Shane!!).  There's a list of restaurants that you can use for your reception dinner, and this restaurant is not on it.  What my coordinator had me do was to email her ahead of time what each guest wanted to eat.  (I put together a set menu that my guests chose from, and then I got what they wanted for an appetizer, entree, and dessert, and sent that list to her.)    IT WAS GREAT!  I highly recommend it.  It's not outdoors but indoors. 
 

You also mentioned you didn't qualify for free events.  We didn't either.  For our welcome dinner, we just had everyone meet at the restaurant without a reservation.  (I got there about an hour early with my bridesmaids to start getting tables for us.)  We did ours at Los Caporales - right next to Arrecifes.  Maybe if you can't decide between these two restaurants, one of them can be for the welcome dinner, and the other for the reception dinner?

 

Hope this helps!

It would be around 7:30pm.

 

Any recommendations?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
