    As of today it is official I am now a Paradisus Playa Conchal bride.  Paperwork has been signed and sent back.  Yea!  The only problem is on the paperwork Lucia sent back had the wrong date.  It was the date we are meeting in October and not the date of our wedding.  At least it was the correct month.  It seems crazy that I now have a date for my wedding.

      Hey!  YYYAAAHHH!!  So happy for you!  :)

       

      I think I am officially done making all the decisions that had to be made.  Just have to make a cd for the ceremony and then I can relax. :)

       

      Any luck with the dresses?

        Yeaa for you that's so exciting to be done.  Can we trade places?  At least for the planning part?  

         

        I have made a few steps in the right direction though.  No not on the dress, although today I did ask my mom if she wanted to be a part of that, of course she said yes.  She's not afraid to speak here mind so I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing.  Stay tuned for an update on that one.  LOL  So here's my few steps:  I think my colors are going to be Aqua (of course)  Chocolate Brown, and sand.  I think it goes with the beach theme and I love Browns.   I also picked up the paper to do my Save the Dates.  I thought since P was so willing to help with spreading the word I didn't really need anything fancy.  He kept joking oh yea I can spread the word no need for anything formal.  Ya gotta love um.  Although I think I'm going to wait and send them out after we get back.  That way my TA isn't getting a million phone calls about prices when she really wants to wait till Nov to see if airfare drops.    

         

        It's not a lot but, at least it's steps in the right direction.  Are you sure we cant trade? lol

          There was a rumor going around another website that after April 30 the Paradisus Playa Conchal would not be resigning its contract.  It's no longer a rumor.  This is the reply I got from them on Facebook.  Looks like I'm back to being a bride without a resort. ;-(   I was so looking forward to this place.  My only hope now is that someone else takes it over and can have it ready but June 22.  UGH.  

           

          Megan now I really want to trade with you.  LOL

           

          Hi Paula:

          I am sorry to inform you that we will not be able to confirm any new reservations beyond April 30th, 2011 due to the fact that Sol Melia Hotels & Resorts representing Paradisus Playa Conchal will finish it’s management contract on the resort on that date.

          This close out applies immediately to all room categories starting May 01st, 2011

          Another hotel chain will probably assume management of the hotel however we still do not have any information about it.

          In the meantime I would like to reiterate that our management and services will remain intact and normally operating until then.

          Please let me know should you have any questions. 

          Best Regards,

            We had heard this from Paola (ex coordinator at PPC) It is a fact that it is changing over management but will be moreless the same staff present at the hotel right now. We will get details and post them for everyone.

              Thanks Ask Costa Rica. I really would hate to have to change locations.

                Ok, here is the scoop from the Sales Manager at Paradisus.

                 

                Hyatt will be that chain that will be taking over PPC. It is expected to be open by April 30th. It should be a pretty smooth transition (most of the same employees) and the sales dept is preparing a report for all brides past this transition date.

                We are very close with PPC so we will keep you in the loop as soon as we know more.

                  Thank you so much Ask Costa Rica.  Is it still going to be an All Inclusive?  This is one of the reasons why I picked this resort for my wedding.

                      Welcome back! I went last weekend and I think I found a dress.  I really like it but.  Yes there's a but, neither of the stores I went to had any of the dresses on my list.  So I want to try a few of those on just to be sure.  It's casablanca 1936.  The picture doesn't do the dress any justice.  The top is all sparkle and then the bottom has a bunch of sparkle to but you cant tell in the pictures. It really is so pretty.

                       

                      The hotel thing really sucks.  At this point I'm in limbo because I don't know if: any one will even take over the hotel, if someone does will it still be an AI ( that's a must), If they'll have wedding packages.  If the Hyatt takes over like Ask Costa Rica said, they don't seem to have any AI resorts.  Which would mean I think we would switch hotels.  The Hyatt didn't have any packages and the rates they show for weddings is CRAZY.  Like $50,000 would get you 5 free nights.  Wasn't planning on spending that kind of money.  Thus the destination wedding.

                       

                      On another note I think I kinda found a cake I like.  How about you have you picked something out?  How about flowers?
