    Hi Ladies-

     

    I was wondering if anyone knows the list of activities you can do with your resort credits?  Now, I have this document that includes the tours and some services, but I have heard there are other things you can do with your resort credits like zipling, etc.  So, I was wondering if anyone knew of anything besides the ones in this document.

And also do they have any table cloths and linens on the reception tables? Or is all that our responsibility to rent/purchase. My day is so far off but I really started thinking about it lately. I just can't seem to find a really good explanation of what the unlimited private function encompasses. If anyone can help me out id really appreciate that!!

         


        The unlimited private events is 3 hours a day of either cocktail party, dinners, reception.....the dinner reservation you can still use as well but it's only for 35 people any over that and you have to have a private event. Also certain restaurants can only handle a certain number of people in a reservation so you will want to be sure and check before you book one.  If you don't reach the 75 room nights a private event is $400 per table. They set up and take down everything for you. You also have options for different buffets for dinners and hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hours. The set up includes white linens and no decorations. Very bare bones. Hope this helps!

          HI Speckles121, yes, that is the one that I have.  I was just curious of there were other things included that were not on that list.  I heard zip lining and some other things are included, but they don't show those in that document.  So, I was just curious.

              I had my call with Joannis yesterday and the private events rate has changed.

               

              Private events are $400 per table of 8 or $50 per person.  It includes setup and takedown for the basic white linens.  If you have additional items to add to your tables, they are charging $100 per table for setup.  However, you can choose to setup things up yourself to avoid the fee.

                So as I said before, I had my call with Joannis yesterday.   We were supposed to have a call last Monday, but she had an emergency and had to leave.  She works out of the Miami office and is my coordinator until it's time to discuss things with the on-site coordinator.   I did ask about the communication issues and got a reasonable response.  They are dealing with multiple brides, so it is difficult to keep up with everyone especially if you're contacting them early.  (I guess that's why we didn't talk until 60 days out.)  She also said that a lot of the questions we ask have to be sent to the on-site coordinator and that they only available for limited time periods during the day.  She said that was due to them being in meetings with brides at the resort and putting on the wedding events.   It makes sense even if I don't like it, but it also makes me be a bit more understanding about the delay in hearing from them.

                 

                So at 60 days out, we have no locations reserved for the wedding, cocktail hour or reception.  She said that she would get in touch with the on-site person to let me know if the locations I requested are available.  I gave her a 1st and 2nd choice for the ceremony gazebo.  We want the Catholic Chapel if possible because it's air conditioned or the Tucan Gazebo.  I also requested the Tucan Terrace for the cocktail hour and reception.

                 

                She sent me a bunch of documents right after the call including the menu, photo packages with Smile Market, DJ services, list of restuarants (including limits on party size) and if anyone is looking for anything, please PM with your email address and I can forward. 

                 

                Overall, the call went well.  I got some info that we need to make decisions about our events. As of right now, we have 19 people in our party.  She said that we could still have a private reception if we want since we are only 1 person off from the minimum.  I'm just not sure which is better. 

                 

                I have a question for you ladies using Smile Market as their photographer.  Are you doing the "getting ready" or any of the other "moments to remember" sessions with them?  I tried to get out of the $500 fee they charge for it, but they are not letting me.  It seems so expensive for an hour of photos. 

                 

                Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to share the info.

                  Hi NSG, zip lining is no longer offered. I spoke to the department that handles the tour. They no longer work with the company that offered the zip lining. I am so disappointed!

                    Well I love hearing that you can set things up yourself! Before I didn't think that was possible. I don't think it's necessary to charge $100 per table to put chair sashes on and a candle on the table. Highly ridiculous!

                      Ok ladies, the time has come......I am leaving tomorrow morning to go to MP!!! I am excited and nervous all at the same time!! I never did hear from my on-site coordinator so I will be curious how this plays out upon check-in. I know that my on-site coordinator received all the emails that were sent between Joannis and I to confirm everything so maybe thats why she never contacted me, knowing that its all confirmed between the three of us.

                       

                      Oh well, I have confidence that MP will make my experience great! I'm sure I will be up all night with excitement! Oh and going to the airport with all my luggage should be interesting......that has been the worst part of this all....trying to jam everything into the luggage without overstuffing the luggage. Oh well, we might need help with all the bags and that was just with me bringing the minimum. I'm sure I will post once we get there to show you all how beautiful it is!!
