Hi all!! I've been a little MIA but it's so nice to come back to all these posts!! Someone from BP finally contacted me!!!! It felt like Christmas. So, I officially have a wedding planner. It is so nice to finally feel like I have a contact at the resort. Marisol is my planner and has sent me all the info. Kristie, if you want to PM me your email address I will forward you the photos she sent me of private event locations (Palenque Terrace), but I am sure you've seen pictures of it. It's the big, open one with the kinda design/artsy stuff on the cement. Let me know if you want me to send you any of the info she sent me. She only sent info on JSAV, but for the ipod hookups they seem to be decently priced so I think it will be ok. I just emailed them to see the charge for an extra hour and extra speaker (to make 2 speakers).
Now that the planning is coming along I have emailed Lily at Zuniga about my decor and some rentals. I emailed her Friday morning, but haven't heard anything back. How long does she normal take to respond? Does anyone know?
My travel agent says my room block is good until 60 days out (February 22nd is 60 days until our big day) and we just recently had a rush of bookings. People definitely waited until the last minute. Hang in there!! When I talked to Marisol she said we were at 58 nights (even my whole family hasn't booked yet - they are total procrastinators) so I think we will for sure hit 75 nights. It will be great to get some final numbers and get to work on my welcome bags and figuring everything else out. I emailed Marvin about flowers for my BMs, and boutonnieres for the boys so I am done with that... I think we are finally moving right along. I emailed Marisol to ask about the cost of adding an extra hour to my reception, because if I do a cocktail hour and 3 hour reception I am going over the 3 hour per day max on private events - has anyone heard if they strictly enforce that? or know the cost?
What does Norma charge for makeup? I know it's probably been said, sorry, I couldnt find it. Kristie, what time is your ceremony??
