Well first of all, I think we have finally chosen (though not confirmed) our wedding location...Playa del Carmen! Yay! With the help of the fantastic staff at the small Hotel La Tortuga (Anna is great, very friendly and responsive!), we will be working with their wedding planners Caribbean Blue Weddings. We are planning to get married at that cute Catholic chapel in Playa then having a simple dinner for 6 guests at the hotel afterward. I'm excited!
I have just asked for a copy of CBW's contract/agreement so we can look it over. Can anyone please give me any advice on what to keep an eye out for? I have already been told that the payment policy is $500 non-refundable down payment to reserve/confirm (which will ultimately be applied to balance), then 50% 3 months prior and the remaining 3 weeks prior. When we're ready to pay the deposit, they will give us the info on how to deposit into their US checking account, after which we will receive a receipt, etc.
Also, would love to hear of anyone's experience with Caribbean Blue Weddings! I did a search on this forum and only found a couple of messages, but both were positive. I checked out their own website and there are tons of good testimonials, but wanted to see if anyone here has used them.
Any advice anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!! Happy planning!!!!!!!
