    Hello fellow brides! I am brand new to the site. I've been peeking through the forums, learning great tips and reading fantastic advice, and have finally selected our resort for our January 2015 wedding. I thought that was the hard part! I am very overwhelmed trying to look through all the posts on this resort regarding price, locations, menus, etc. My travel agent has been somewhat helpful getting some information to me, but what I am fearful of are all the hidden fees involved with the DJ, decorations, etc. I haven't had any contact yet from the team in Miami since I just decided on the resort. Does anyone know, after hearing from them, will I have a better idea on these things?


    There are so many questions I have and with 8 short months to plan, I need to have answers as soon as I can! I am pretty laid back about the event, but I just want to make sure I'm making the most cost effective choices! Thank you for any help any of you can provide!

    Congrats and welcome to BDW! This is an awesome site and full of tons of information that will definitely be of some help! At least you already have a TA and that is a great place to start.


    You'll find after the initial contact you may not hear from the WC for a while, and you may have to be persistent if there is specific info you're looking for. The WC's generally take weddings in turn so they are busy with whatever is current. A lot of brides on this site are very surpised by this and you will definitely hear them quite concerned. But these are professionals at what they do, they do it all the time and your wedding when your time comes will be beautiful.


    It's helpful if you can have your questions ready to put into one email once you know who your coordinator will be. Some resorts have a few of them. And keep ALL of your emails!! This will absolutely help you out down the road when you're trying to refer back to things that have been communicated. And lastly, read, read, read through this site. I can almost guarantee that something you want to know, someone else has asked so the answer is likely here somewhere.


    You need to reach 150 posts before you are able to see photos and templates that are posted unless you have a paid membership so snoop around and ask questions, make comments. You'll get to 150 more quickly than you realize. But everyone here is more than willing to share so don't hesitate to ask for someone to email something to you if it's something that you really would like to have.


    Good luck and happy planning! You've picked a beautiful resort!

    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
