    Is anyone booking a guest room block directly through BP? How are the rates? Seriously thinking of using a TA but curious to know what others are doing.

      I was going to use BP, but I found a TA that got me the group rate I believe a little cheaper not a lot but with better amenities.

      My group is all using one travel agent and it has worked out great. Our group rate that the TA got us was $1598 + $200tax.  That includes flights, airport transfers, 7 nights at Beach palace and the all inclusive package.  I have had a bit of headaches using my travel agent since she is so slow to answer my questions sometimes and it drives me crazy because I am a control freak, but all in all we got an amazing deal.

        That's really good do you get amenities from the hotel for the wedding?

        By ammenities do you mean the wedding packages? We chose the complimentary package and it comes with all the stuff listed on the website.  My travel agent got them to confirm that we have the skyterrace for the ceremony and the south sky terrace for the reception.  We have reached the 75+ room nights as well so we have access to the free ulimited private events deal which is super awesome!

        Is that what you were asking? :)

          Hi Ladies!  I'm booked for June 11, 2014 and can't wait!  I've booked Sweet Fire Photography, Lori's work looks AMAZING!  The only thing I'm wondering is if anyone has any feedback or has booked their hair and make up yet?  Any recommendations?!  Thank you :)

              I am brand new and just booked my wedding for June 5!!!!  I'm so excited I can't stand it. Does anyone have any pictures of the new wedding collections? I wanted just a subtle blue covering on the alter, but I don't see anything that simple? Anyone know if you can take complimentary package and just add a couple things here or there?

              I was originally going to go with Tania Tagel for the airbrush makeup and hair for myself & my bridesmaids but the outside vendor fee is just so crazy.  I cant imagine spending the $250ish for my hair and makup and then the increased $800 outside vendor fee...which is still INSANE in my mind!  So I have decided to just get my hair and makeup done at the salon.   After doing a bunch of research and chatting with some past brides I am actually ok with not getting the airbrush makeup done.  A bride I was speaking with said the airbrush makeup looked nice but by the end of the evening looked very worn and streaky from sweat and humidity. She couldnt blend it away so she actually ended up going to her room, removing it all and then applying her normal makeup.  Seems like this would be such a waste if it happened to me after paying almost $1000 with the fee added :S
