    For all of you crazy planners out there...to put things into perspective, I booked back in November and am getting married at BP 7/28/12...less than 90 days from now. Janessa and I are having our first planning call this coming Wednesday. When I first got started planning, I emailed her a lot...but then just realized they have to go at their own pace. So I relied on info on this site and said I'm not going to worry about it until it's time to plan with the resort. I think you just have to embrace the "it will happen when it happens" mentality of the Palace Resorts. Everyone I see on here who's had their weddings already said it all works out. So I just believed them and enjoyed being engaged.  

    Thank you and Congrats!
    Just as stir crazy as my first wedding!

      Thats pretty much the idea I have as well, minus the little things like linnens and photographer, dress..etc. I believe the resort will do their part. I just dont know how to lan everything else out.

        Ahhh I'm almost 2 months away! Had my call w/Janessa today and it was really easy breezy. We're only going to have like 12 guests so I'm going minimalist....complimentary ceremony, and I actually had the choice of the Sky Terrace or the beach. I chose the beach. I know everyone wants to use BP b/c of the Sky Terrace, but it was just too big for what we were doing. I think small and intimate on the beach will be perfect for our group.

         

        I have to give Janessa props. She didn't try to push services or items on me. I asked about a cocktail reception, and she said I could absolutely plan one...but it would be $400, and for such a small group, she said she didn't see where that would be a great value. I really appreciated that! She said we could have the same experience just going to one of the bars together.

         

        You know, when I first decided to do a DW, I completely went into over-planning mode. Now I have to admit, I'm glad it's going to be so much smaller. It's so much less to stress over. Now I can buy fun stuff like gifts for my guests, and start planning my home town celebration!

                  Yes..I'm using the new CC collection comp ceremony. I liked the brown pergola better, BUT I liked the bouquet from the old comp ceremony. I'm told though, they don't like to mix and match like that. So I figured I'd cross that bridge when I came to it. 

                   

                  We are just going to have dinner at the steak restaurant. It didn't really make sense to have a reception w/only 11 people. The thing is...we'll be completely done by like 8:00...so w/no reception...what are we all going to do after dinner??

                    I have inquired about using the old complimentry brown arch/pergola and white drapery and I was told it will be a charge of $500. I will wait patiently to see pictures from your wedding! I am sure the new version is just as beautiful!

                     

                    I wouldnt stress about what to do after dinner. You wil all be having so much fun! You could continue having drinks in a lounge somewhere. The night will be over and you wont even realize where all the time went!

                      Wow, $500! And then I'm sure you still have to pay Zuniga to do the drapery. I'm sure the Colin Cowis package will do just fine, lol.
