So.......I'm taking a break from packing, and thinking to myself "What do I still need to do?". I'm pretty sure I have everything all ready to go. I'm doing my eyebrows, going to the bank, yadda yadda on Monday. Then, I have this thought--I still haven't heard from Kalena to set up an appointment to meet with her when I get down there!!! We are leaving WEDNESDAY. My wedding is in less than 7 days. So now I'm kind of having a panic attack. I mean, we're going to be on the plane and flying at 6A on Wednesday. I know I won't hear from her tomorrow. That leaves 2 days to try to get contact her. Aaahh!! In other news, my wrist is still not fully healed from breaking it in February. They have taken off the cast now, but it's in a splint I'm supposed to keep on for 3 more weeks. They told me I can take it off occasionally now, so I figure I'll just take it off for the wedding and while I'm down at the pool. Unfortunately, the cast just came off, so there went my plans to work out and get tan. That stuff is totally not happening. Luckily, I'm so close to leaving, I kind of don't care anymore. I just can't wait to go down there. We are staying for 10 days, and I feel like hubby is going to have to drag me home kicking and screaming.
YAY YAY YAY!!! congrats! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Here's the link
Hello my fellow MP brides, so for about the past 3 months I have been reading threads and following the advice you have posted, all secretly, I felt it was about time I come clean and join in on the discussions. 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!

Will write a full review when we get back but wanted to update any brides who are coming soon that the Disco is closed for repairs with an unknown date to reopen. 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.
I would have had a heart attack too!!!

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!
