    Is anyone dealing with the Preferred Section person? Like making dinner reservations for the week or anything of the sort?  Just curious what everyone is doing. Also is anyone doing group excursions or just staying on the resort ?

      The guys in my group are doing a group excursion.. god knows what .. My brother is planning it.

      I am hoping they stick with golf as its the day before the wedding ;-)

       

      We are doing a girls night.. a guys night and the wedding.. I am skipping on the whole welcome dinner thing. we only have 5 nights together as a group do to differnt flights outr of NS and NL so I want to give ppl time alone. I am sure once I get there I may need the assistance of the preferred club for reservations, but I may not as with children you really can't make plans :-)

I actually gave my guests until 5/15, but I have a feeling if they haven;t spoken to us by now, they aren't planning on coming, just wish they would send back the RSVP! They are already stamped, geez! lol Are you having a rehearsal or welcome dinner at all? I was thinking about it, but do you know if that is an extra cost? I don't see paying for food and drinks that are already included!

        May 15?!  You are very patient!  I have wishy washy family members that need to make up their mind already lol.  One of my bridesmaids used to be a wedding planner and she warned me that people for some reason are really bad about rsvping for weddings.  What's worst is you stamped your rsvp's.  I feel your pain :)

         

        So funny I feel like you and I are on the same page regarding our weddings.  I just asked Syliva what we could do about a rehearsal dinner.  Here's what she said:

         

        We can offer a private event or a non-private event:

         

        Private Event:

        For a private dinner we can offer one of our Cocktail and Dinner packages, Silver, Gold or Platinum, with standard set-up that includes: Private location, open bar, basic white linens, flatware, silverware and glassware.

         

        Non-private event:

        We can reserve a space in one of our open restaurants a la carte (upon availability), for groups up to 25 people. In case that you have more than 25 people for your rehearsal dinner, we can offer you a reservation in our Carnival International Caf© (buffet style restaurant). In both cases, the set up will be individual tables, for up to 8 people each one.

         

        I have to find out more about it but if she can gaurantee that the group will be sitting in the same section (I've heard other brides complain that they didn't) I will most likely just do a private event.

         

        Which package did you go with?

Shes been super helpful and even made a reservation foru group at the buffet for a welcome dinner!

          Hi Kristen0000 - it's really good to "meet" you :)

          Thank you for letting me know about her communication skills.  I can roll with the punches for the most part..accept when I feel I'm being ignored lol.

           

          How exciting! I'm so happy for you :)  Please make sure to come back and let us know how things turned out.  Share your pics!

           

          Good luck I'm sure everything is going to turn out - you have great weather this upcoming week!

            MandieTOFF -

            I know we upgraded to a nicer ocean front room and have the preferred club with it but I really haven't dived into it.  I just know it's a perk :)

             

            I thought about doing an excursion since my group is there for a week but I felt like you Susan and wanted to give everyone sometime to do their own thing.  I am planning on a rehearsal dinner though and like you have a girls night out and a boys night out.  My FI will actually have his bachelor party there.
