I recieved an email from Nicole about a week ago for me to fill out with all the details for my Wedding on Feb 24th, i returned everything to them Monday and have yet to hear back. I also just paid my deposit on Flowers from Floral Fantasies but chose not to rent chair sashes and table runner, i think i am going to bring my own in Fuschia (if anyone needs them after me).

I had my first dress fitting and all i need is a garter, bracelet and wedge flipflops since i cant wear my good heels in the sand

 

It is so close!

 

This destination wedding stuff is easy compare to our "reception" back here!

I have sent SEVERAL e mails to Nicole and Tiffany concerning my documents that I have sent THREE TIMES and to see if we can change the menu to a more island menu. I am STILL waiting for a response. My nerves are already in an uproar because I am soooo hands on everything and me not being able to physically be there is driving me crazy.

I keep reading this post with people stressing out over lack of response form the WCs ... Please don't stress people!! Its not worth it. You probably have enough other things to stress about. .. or I know I do at least !

 

 

I look at it this way.. They do a wedding almost every day. They also meet with brides throughout the week that are getting married that week to do a tour, plan out their day. Which means, every day they are dealing with that wedding, and the needs of the bride, the needs of the brides on site waiting to get married that week. On top of that, they are getting emails daily from all other brides that have booked, looking to book, etc ... so they are probably really swamped.

 

When I emailed them I just sat back, and waited. I sometimes wondered if my email were lost in the pile they receive, but every time, I did get a response. Sometimes it would take a month or even longer to get a response...but I always got a response.

 

I totally understand what it feels like to have no control while you are just waiting, but that's how it works with destination weddings. I just decided that its not worth stressing over. Once you get to that one month mark to your date they will give you more attention, and once you are there.. the attention is all yours.. which is exactly what you should want... the last thing you would want is them busy dealing with other brides issues that there wedding is months and months off.

 

They really should have someone on full time just answering these questions, but unfortunately they don't.

 

If you really can't wait and need answers you could always try calling them? I heard someone people got a better response when calling.

Hi girls.

 

Does anyone have the most up to date price list for add ons? (like prive per head for private receptions, bar, etc?)

 

Also does anyone know if it is possible to get married after sunset...like a twlight or nighttime ceremony.

 

Thanks in advance for any and all information!

 

Stephanie

I have changed some things about the menu, which they are fine with.  I don't know where you are having the reception, but as long as the kitchen is set up to accomodate your request, they will probably do it.  (It seems the kitchens in each restaurant are set up differently and are not a "full" restaurant kitchen like you would imagine)  I started working on my menu selection in September and it still not finalized.  So be patient, as hard as that is.  Like Kassi said, they are extremely busy!

Hi Ladies!

 

Fairly new to the forum, so still learning the ropes. Just wanted to share while clicking around I saw BDW is offering a webinar for Iberostar Resorts - http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/83801/wedding-webinar-schedule-for-2013

 

It's scheduled for Sat, February 16, 2013 @ 9:00am PST. I'm not sure if it will be worth the time, but thought I'd pass it along!

 

Happy Friday!
