    If you do the site visit you'll have to let me know what you think. I'd love to go but at this point I'm just to scared and I'm trying to hoard my vacation time because we're going to be GCR for 5 days then doing a 2 week honeymoon!!  Although leaving the boys at home does sound tempting

     

    I did get my contract, I signed it and returned it a few weeks ago. Both my ceremony and reception locations aren't listed on the website as being available on 2/7 at 4pm so I think I'm all set, I know they can change it though, it says it in the contract. I'm just hoping they don't.  I ordered my save the dates already so regardless I'm getting married there on February 7th even if it's in the lobby, haha JK I hope!  My coordinator, Estela, seems to be better than most. She emails me daily with answers to any questions, updates and pictures. I've been VERY lucky!

      My coordinator is Estela too :) how do you like her? I find her to be very helpful and informative but to the point ! What sorts of questions are you asking her? What kind of pictures has she sent you? I am getting married on January 25. My FI and I went on vacation there in February. Loved it !!!

        I'm so happy to hear you went there and loved it!

         

        Estela has bee great and trust me I ask a lot of questions and make sure I clarify everything so I can have it all printed out when I get there and avoid any extra charges.  I didn't like the standard cake that came with my package so I wanted a different cake and asked her if I could have each layer a different flavor (she said yes and free of an extra charge!)

         

        I've asked her for pictures of the reception site and shown her pictures of flowers I liked but wanted tweaked a bit to see if that could be done.  She's sent me examples of different arrangements.  If you want something that isn't on the website, I suggest asking, so far she has been able to accommodate everything.

         

        Right now I'm waiting to hear back on if they can tweak the centerpiece I like a bit.  I was going to do flowers from an outside vendor but my FI wasn't a huge fan of the $330 fee especially since we're leaving 2 days after the wedding and everything will go into the trash, he does have a valid point, so we're trying to compromise on something that will look nice but be economical.

                  Just make sure you get an itemized bill and read EVERYTHING! Lol!

                    Not a problem, but we went pretty simple. Bringing our own decor and flowers. Not a lot of additions other than Catholic package, dj and pictures! We have 70 guests. Alejandra was great in making adjustments as our number of guests changed too! I think it helped that I've been on this forum since November. I had no surprises...
