    We are thinking August 22nd. Booked this far out? What, I already have a contact at the resort and working with Teresa from Vacations4less as a TA... I have been in contact with the resort but have not put the room block yet. I never thought a resort would be booked with so much time in advance. That is crazy, you are getting me nervous now

Just for our families are going to need 12 rooms. Then add friends in still. Rough estimate is approx 16-20 rooms.

     

    I've requested a contact with the resort and with a travel agent so now just waiting on both to get back with me. I honestly didn't think it would already be filling up so quickly 17 months out.

      I called and got a return call from Elvia (sp?) from the resort. I missed her call but in her VM she said she was going to email me the info. I haven't received it as of yet. However I did an online chat with the resort and she confirmed that the ocean swim up room was booked for the weekend I wanted. So, for sure one level of rooms is gone.

          Yeah!

           

          I did get a response today with all the package information. I returned my Wedding Reservation Request form to them immediately so hopefully, fingers crossed, I'll get a response by tomorrow. I'm anxious to start planning other things and sending out our save the date announcements.

            I have not signed our contract but I am going to Playacar in May to check out the space before fully committing to a group contract. The wedding contract we will probably send this week. Let me know if there is anything, pictures, etc. that you would like while I am there :-) I am not as anxious to send the save the date since we are planning an engagement party in June where we will officially announce our date and location. Still we will send an official save the date shortly after the party, but I rather just see the resort and have everything worked out before taking that step.

             

            (BTW, I am going crazy with the engagement party planning, I don't want to know how crazy I am going to be planning the wedding)

              I would love to see any pics you take! My FI leaves this Sunday to go back to Afghanistan so we won't have a chance to do a site visit.  Well, unless I can convince one of my girlfriends to go with me.

               

              We're having a small engagement luncheon on Saturday but with him being gone it really eliminates a lot for us.

                  We are moving right along. I've paid the deposit at the hotel and am working with the travel agent on blocking our rooms. She has our info and is submitting it to the resort. Once we hear back from her, we'll pay the 6% deposit on the block of rooms then my family and friends can start booking! I've already had 4 people try to contact her to start booking.

                   

                  I also have our save the date cards in design now. Just waiting on the proof.

                    That is great. I sent the wedding date request form but havent heard from Elvia, I am sure is available though :-) I want August 22nd, 6pm. I will take lots of pictures when I am there and share with you (hopefully we will get to see a wedding while there)
