Help!! Wedding contract

Recommended Posts

We are planning to get married just the two of us at the O&O Palmilla in Cabo. My best friend is insistent that she wants to be there. Since we need 4 witnesses I figured it would be ok. She would stay at another resort.

 

O&O's policy is that if there is a party of 4 people we need to spend a minimum of $6000 on food and beverage?? (wtf !@$%#) Pardon my French.

 

I haven't sign the contract yet, FI saids for me to tell BF she can't come. She's really persistent but I don't want to be stuck with an outrageous bill just b/c somewhere down the line, someone decides they want to surprise us by showing up.

 

Should I look into another resort?? We really wanted to stay here because we heard the service is great and they have a decent wedding package for 2 people.

 

But I can' afford another $6000 just for food for a few people on top of what I would be paying.

 

What are your thoughts? TIA.

Wow! That is outrageous. Can you maybe do the reception somewhere else? Because $6000? for 4 people? No way.

 

I'd suggest you push back on your WC and figure out why it is that you have to pay $1,250 per person. Makes NO sense.

that is a lot of money. O&O is one of the most beautiful places i've ever been! but if your best friend doesn't come, who would you use for the 4 witnesses? it kind of sounds like O&O forces that $6000 on you b/c you are going to need 4 witnesses, a la 6 people??

I agree with Alyssa.. If you don't want to spend 6k (and OMG that is just nuts) then I would look at other places. Yes the O&O is beautiful but IMO it's not worth 6k

I thought the resort said they would provide witnesses if needed but I can't find that anywhere so I'm wondering if I'm confusing it with another place.

 

I'm going to talk to my WC and see what other details should I know about before signing anything.

 

I'll have to check into seeing if we can do the ceremony there and take off to have dinner elsewhere.

 

I thought getting married with just the two of us would be less of a headache.

 

Thanks everyone, I'll update you on what happens.

I was thinking the same thing as Alyssa. Who would you use for your 4 witnesses? I'm assuming the resort staff maybe?

 

What in the world are they serving for $6k for 4 peoplehuh.gif That sounds a bit outrageous to me. Maybe its 6,000 pesos not USD. lol, I'm just trying to come up with some logical reason for that price. yikes!!!

according to mexican law, i was told that you only need to have 2 witnesses for the legal marriage when we looked into whether we cared about being legally married in mexico. so i really think you ought to NOT sign that contract. they're taking advantage.

 

there are sooo many places in cabo other than O&O, you might want to look into them.
