    Like I posted earlier, I am going on a last minute site visit to Playa Fiesta (we leave next Friday!)! I am very excited to see the resort, but have no clue what else I should do when I am there to help prepare for the wedding?? What do I bring? What questions do I ask? This will be the only time I am there before the wedding, and don't want to forget anything!

    For the girls that have visited their wedding location before, what did you do?

    TIA!! Jackie

      I didn't go on one.... but if I did, I would take lots and lots of pics, get brochures of the area and anything I wanted to do while I was there.... visit nail/hair salon....

        I used to do site visits for work all the time. basically it's just a trip to see everything and anything you want and make sure the space would work out for your purposes. It's also a time to ask ANY questions you may have.

        For example you could find out what their standard decorations are, what they charge for upgraded decor and what options you have, the logistics of getting from your room to the ceremony site, what's options you have for dinner/drinks/cocktail hour, etc.

        Also, they should pamper the heck out of you! And don't feel silly asking for anything. Their service on the site inspection should be a good indication of the service they will provide on the wedding day.

              My site visit is in two weeks this is what I'm planning:

              Meet with WC
              Look at 5-6 venues for wedding location
              Try out restaurants within the hotel (Dreams) and see where we could have a welcome reception, etc.
              Look at venues for rehersal dinner and hopefully do some tastings
              Check out the golf courses
              Find someone to do my hair/makeup
              Pick up some maps and info pamphlets
              Take pics for gift to BM's (I'm taking scenic pics of Cabo, matting and framing them, probably)
              Look at the honeymoon suite at Dreams (hope they have one!)
              Check out a hotel to honeymoon at for a few days after the wedding (we're thinking One&Only)

              I think that's it...

                Oh, thank you for all of the good tips, Tara and Amanda. I just arranged to do a tasting, and to take a peek at all of our guest's rooms as well as the honeymoon suite. Yay!
