Haha so am I. Wait another week and then maybe call them directly. I'm sure your travel agent is doing all she can but after so many tries maybe it's time to take control yourself ;) Just some advice from one control freak to another lol

I'm 5 months away from my wedding and when my coordinator takes over a week to reply it freaks me out.

    Hola Melissa14 ......as you may already have heard from others here, communication speeds up closer to your wedding date. I understand it must be frustrating - especially planning from another country, however, on the upside......it's a good thing that your wc is so busy :) It means they're very practised at co-ordinating lots of details and getting their brides' requests looked after........so big exhale :)


    It's all going to turn out to be Amazing!!! you'll see :)






    Wishing you all the best with your planning process - and that you have the Wonderful Wedding of your Dreams !!!

      Well I got a response back from the resort quite quickly actually...but unfortunately not the information I needed.  I forgot to include what resort I wanted wedding information from.  Hopefully I will get a further response sooner than later.  Happy Wedding planning in the next 5 months to you.  I hope all goes just as you dreamed it would :)

          Hi Kldunning,


          Sorry for the delay in responding to you.  I chose RD for a couple of different reasons...first being the price (although I still don't have the actual quotes for Nov.2014 yet) and the other reason for something different.  Everyone goes to Jamaica, Cuba, Dominican, Mexico.  Not one person who will be travelling with us have ever been to Panama.  


          I received the wedding package information from the wedding coordinator at the resort and their prices are sooooo much better than what I've seen from other destinations, so that helped me make my decision too. 


          I've read thousands of reviews of the RD and although there are some negative reviews there are soo many positive ones.  We are travelling with what I anticipate will be a large group and the size of the RD is perfect for that as I don't know that I would want to be on a small resort with 50 something people that I know and every time you go outside your room you are with them the whole trip...know what I mean.  At least with the RD its so big that if my FI and I want to escape we can do that.


          Have you booked your trip yet?  Do you have pricing for March 2014 yet?  I asked my agent when I can expect to receive quotes for Nov.2014 and she figures it'll be about a year out from our date...which sucks cause I'm just a tad bit anxious.


          Well keep in touch with your wedding plans and I will do the same.  Us Panama brides seem to be very few. Wishing you the best of luck!
