Ginny, sorry I just saw you responded! I too have booked my hair and makeup with MVP!
I do have an update on how my experience has gone with the coordinator: I emailed the resort manager and requested a new coordinator. I told them I was planning to do the big package but after dealing with Areli that I would not spend any money on anything. They promptly set me up with Delia and let me tell you, this girl is GREAT!!! Delia responds to my emails within 24 hours and has never left me questioning anything. She has already planned my entire weekend of events and I am now set up to do the big package with the full dinner and reception. There were SO many things that needed to be done like pick the flowers, meals, set up the bonfire, decorations etc. We are doing the bonfire the night before our wedding and I highly recommend that you do it! We added two lounges and the chinese lanterns- gorgeous. I am so pleased with everything now and we are really excited to get there and have our wedding. We also are set up with the honeymoon package, don't forget to ask about these little things! They will not add them for you unless you ask about them.
Brittany: Thank you for your information! I'm glad everything turned out well for you and it does make me feel a little better. I wish the resort manager would read these comments all over the internet and get a clue.. lol.
Ginny, here are the options I got for the extra events:
Options for a private event include the following
*gazebo (smaller groups)
*marina terrace (adults only)
*one of our a-la-carte restaurants (subject to availability and additional rental fee)
* Bonfire evening on the beach: soft appetizers, bonfire and private service with open international premium bar for 2 hours
*Cocktail evening: cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the Barracuda Bar
* Buffet reception
If you want prices on these I have those too, I did not want to post them on here though. Send me a message if you are interested. I have a lot of attachements from the coordinators I can send you too if you still have not heard back from them.
