I booked through a travel agent and my group had to pay in full for the room. It was part of the group contract, with the due date about 2 months before the travel date. Thought 2 months out seems pretty far in advance, it doesn't seem strange to me that they would ask for payment before arrival. We travel a lot and all of the hotels, all-inclusive or not, have us pay before we get there.
As far as the wedding extras, I've been told by the wedding department, and Katie at Zuinga, that all of those extras can be paid for at check out. So at least that part has been confirmed.

I have a question about payment, has anyone been asked to pay in full before you even get there? I saw a lot of comments about charging the wedding to the room, but no mention about being asked to pay in full in advance. I can understand a deposit but not paying in advance.
