AshaJ, welcome! Don't stress! It all works out. I know I started stressing last month for sure with two months to go. I started thinking about the very few weekends I have to get everything done! My wedding date is April 17th. So far they are offering them $100 to downgrade. I think that is about what they paid to upgrade, but still annoying. My worry now is that they will be in another part of the resort far away from us.
Apparently they are not doing any "private" receptions in any of the sit down resturants anymore. At least that is true for the peak months. They say you can do non private at 6:00 or 9:00 and that they can non guarantee that your group sits together. They also do not give you the menu that comes with your package. Have the reason we are doing the Divine package is so our group gets the platinum dinner, so we wanted private. They would give you a menu from what that particular rest. serves that is set. Sooo, depending on how many people you have coming I guess you could chance it.
Asha to answer your question, we are handing out our bags the day after arrival. We are a fairly small group, only 17 of us. There are only 9 bags to hand out so I figured I could make it to each guest. We know we will be taking more luggage than we are allowed, we are lucky in that we have family leaving from Denver with us and they have offered to carry it for us. I imagine we will have 5 checked bags total. But we are going to be there for 2 weeks as well!
Sommer-I need to do my tanks as well. Do you guys have Hobby Lobby's up there? I know I have seen some iron on stuff there before. It may not say bride but you could use glue that holds up in the wash with regular stones? That is what I was thinking about. I hope you have Hobby Lobby, I find it so much better than Michaels.
