It's just frustrating that we have to do this at all, the luxury package that I put a deposit down for cost $2400 US (at the time) and is now like $3200, things like this concern me as they could try and screw me over making me pay more. Now I'm all worked up! On another note about dresses, I ordered mine way back in June and I'm concerned that I'm not going to love it anymore, so don't pick your dress too early!
    I am getting married the day after you! We are also doing the luxury pkg and put our deposit down a while ago as well. Our TA called Angie the WC and we were told we get the rate we put a deposit on. Hope this helps!!

        Hey Gals!

        All of the DJ Ivan hoopla is pretty confusing. I just sent an email to Kimberly (Stateside WC) to ask about it as we currently have a quote from him and were about to pay the deposit and book. Does anyone else have her as your WC? I havent even started communicating with anyone actually based at the resort.

        One more question- Does anyone know of any great, lower-cost companies for outings? We are looking to do something fun and special for our bridal party and sig others and thought a snorkeling tour or something like that might fit the bill. I would love to hear about any other ideas you may have.

        Hope everyone is having a GREAT holiday season!

          Lady Di-

          Just saw your post. Are you talking about not being charged for guests coming over to the wedding from the Gran Porto? We may have a few people staying there......

          Thanks-

            As far I know, any guests from Gran Porto or non guests will not get charged for attending the wedding/reception.

              I believe Gran Porto guests are free to the amount included in your package. But there is a "non-guest fee" listed on the pricing spreadsheet. it might just be the charge for "extra guests".

                You are right...i was referring to day passes. Just to be clear, they are not supposed to be charged for any day pass just to attend the wedding/reception.

                    Jesmcan,

                    I sent Catamaya an email in their contact section of their website a month ago and no one ever contacted me back. Is that how you requested their information? Do you happen to have a contact persons email address?

                    Thanks so much!
