Nice, we have two other brides at the Excellence. I'm happy to have someone else to compare notes with! We just got our official wedding confirmation letter this week. (OMG, it took forever... over a month.)
@bethb731 - I'm not sure if this helps, but I booked our room block in advance of getting the confirmation letter of our wedding date/package.
The photo pacakges for Beach Weddings Studio are expensive, so I am really considering just bringing someone from offsite. HCD and Caribbean Emotions gave me excellent pricing. So good, I could bring them in, pay the extra fees and get a lot more for the $$. My travel agent is also looking into the possibility of flying someone in, putting them up for 3 nights at the hotel in lieu of them charging for pictures. (Which would ROCK!)
I got a list of the bouquets, centerpieces, gazebo decorations, cakes and pricing that I'll be happy to send over to you if you want.
