    OMG that is soo exciting!! Your more than welcome to stop by and be our wedding crashers haha...

    How did you manage to get ahold of someone to book your locations?? Which locations are you using?? Who is your wedding coordinator? I want to book the tucan beach for our ceremony, tucan gardens for cocktail hour and tucan terrace for our reception.  My miami wedding coordinator was great about responding to emails up until recently.  We decided to switch from a legal ceremony to a symbolic so I emailed her about it last week and she has yet to respond, I ended up calling the 877 number at the end of her emails and spoke to someone in the wedding sales office who took care of it for me, and said the $300 deposit we put down for the civil ceremony will be credited to our room.  I feel like they see your wedding number in emails and just ignore it because they are sick of dealing with us LOL.  Im going to try and call the same number tomorrow and demand to speak with someone especially now that I know your wedding is the day after mine and your booked already! We decided just to stick with the complimentary package and add the horse and carriage, Im totally fine with having the plain setup for our ceremony.  I have been able to finalize our photography with ocean studio/smilemarket, my flowers/centerpieces with marvin at maya floral, and the ipod hook up with PSAV.  Can you think of anything else I need to do? We are in the process of working on our OOT bags, figuring out music, and buying bridesmaid/groomsmen gifts.  Thank you so much for your help, maybe we could meet up while we are in Cancun together! We arrive on November 6 and leave November 15!

    I am getting married at MP on sunday 11/11/12 so I'll be there for your wedding!!! 

    To be honest, reserving my locations was the first thing I did because they seem to go quick. It was a challenge since its really hard to get a hold of anyone or to get my wedding coordinator from miami to answer emails. My fiance would call the palace resorts hotline and demand to speak to someone especially supervisors to get answers and locations. it took us about a month of frustration but we finally got everything settled with locations in a contract and signed it. I recommend you get on top of it ASAP and once its done you can relax. Since I finalized the locations I am not stressing at all and we have 6 months to go, the last thing you want to do is keep waiting and thinking about it so i say fight for it now and get it over with. We also finalized our additional decor with Katie through Zuniga and we choose the lavender luxe collection for the reception, the complimentary package with a few add ons for the ceremony (we are also doing the horse and carrage). Let me know if you have any questions.

      I forgot to ask you... have you sent your out your invitations yet? We sent ours out the first week of March because we wanted to give our guests 6 months to book (I made Sept 8 our RSVP deadline since MP said they would only hold the group block until then).  As of now we have 7 people (not including FI and myself) definitely booked for 22 nights, and 10 others that have RSVP'd yes but have not booked, some who have purchased airfare but know they have til Sept to book the room so they are waiting-for what reason I have no clue?? And that number doesnt include 2 people that are supposed to be in the wedding but have done nothing so far! So I guess as of now we get 2 complimentary nights and a one hour private function! Im really hoping to reach the 75 nights!

        I will be headed out this Wednesday to tackle the name change battle.  First stop will be the social security administration and second the DMV.  All else, I can do online or via mail.  YAY!  I sure did... we had Ivan all day for our wedding from 12pm-12a and then for our TTD from 3-7..  I'm so not the swimmer and neither is Hubby but we managed to pull it off but damn it's a lot of work... in my non-swimmer, water in my throat voice

        I'll be off in half an hour. I'm feeling pretty good!  I'm so excited to change my name, which I won't do until after we get back so I don't have any travelling issues.

         

        I can't wait to see your professional pictures too! Everything look great just based on your guests' pictures, I can't imagine what the pro pics look like. Did you do an underwater TTD?

          These are the group amentities I was told:

          5-9 rooms for 3 nights or 15 room nights= one hour private function

          10-19 rooms for 3 nights or 30 room nights = 2 complimentary nights based on original room category up to concierge level + one hour private function

          20-24 rooms for 3 nights or 60 room nights = 4 complimentary nights + 1 two hour private function

          25 rooms or 75 room nights= 7 complimentary nights + unlimited private functions (one hour cocktail + two hour dinner MAX three hours per day) + one room upgrade for the bride and groom to the next available category up to concierge level.

           

          We basically told our wedding coordinator how many rooms we wanted blocked off and for which dates, booked our room and she emailed me a secure link that we had to send to our guests in order for them to book under our group contract and for them to get the group rates.  We signed our group contract in Feb for a Nov wedding.  Hope this helps a little

Any suggestions? Can someone tell me how their process went? How far in advance does the group contract need to be done?

                  I thought of doing that too. But for PA, I have to apply in person for Social Security and DMV, so the fee just to print papers for me wasn't much of any help as I have to sit there anyway

I filled out the form online, they say it takes 15-20 minutes and ta da, I'm a married woman. We are taking our parents and then having a nice dinner afterwards. So is excited :)

                     

                    I can't believe I leave in 10 days. I have three people who added themselves to my guest list just last week (and two of them weren't even invited...) so it's been kind of crazy having to change some seating charts, placecards, and OOT bags around, but the more the merrier right?

                     

                    Jamie, are you ready?? We're so close!
