Congrats on the Nov 1! You must be soooo excited!
Who was your wedding planner? And, who's been assigned as your onsite coordinator?
Thanks for all the great tips and general advice. I NEEDED to hear that!
Wish I had read about mywedding before. Wrapping up the weddingwire one now...have to get it out/published right away.
Yes, I will be patient with all the questions. To top it off, I booked through a friend's membership and will have to field a to of questions about travel. Yikes! Patience, breathing, counting...
Because I'm less than 60 days out (57 to be exact), I never got a room block. Moon Palace told me some dates with good availability and it's all based on availability but with the member rates and perks. My guests will all have to all membership directly (no e-mail/internet booking), and will have to pay in full at booking time. It takes me 5 calls a day to get ahold of the guy who has to do the bookings. I hope my guests don't get desperate and just book online or with a TA. I won't get their room night counts towards my benefits. But, yes, I will put the deadline (for one of the membership perks) and to book right away.
What is your DJ doing for equipment? I have acquaintances - one a DJ, one a photographer. They are both invited (not because of their work), but I wonder how I can bring it up to them if they are interested. Because there is friendship involved, it's a little messy to think about negotiating, etc.. Did you look at the photographers/DJs there, or did you decide to bring your own from the get go?
Good tip on the waxing. Btw, can we make appts at the MP spa before we even arrive? (for my 7-night guests we get 2 free mani/Pedi's per room, and a big resort credit which can be used at the spa...we will be crowding the place!).
Thanks again for taking the time to write to me. Good advice.
Excited for wedding dress shopping today....hope the salespeople don't freak out about the date.
All I hear is: "THIS year?? THIS year??? REally? This year??"
