Only thing is they are charging us separately for dinner, cocktail hour, AND drinks. How many guests go u have coming to ur wedding? Our buffet option alone is $70 per person and we r being charged for children!!! How is ur $66 for everything?! Help!!!

OOOOH b/c you have to have the buffet b/c your number of ppl. We have 31ppl coming. And I'd talk to you WC and say you're not paying for drinks for the kids since they will not be drinking....try and work a deal with the kids at least b/c they won't eat half of what is there probably and won't be drinking. Also, I heard a lot of ppl got out of the extra fee for the cake b/c I guess they cut very large pieces and there is also desert included in the ultimate package so it might be a bit too much

Hi! I too was having this same problem! Our wedding is August 3rd and we are leaving next month with 81 guests booked! I started freaking out to Deyanira and having my fiances family call her since they are from the area and know pricing. I thought we had to pay extra for open bar and everything but it turns out the $74 extra per person we are paying for the buffet includes the price for drinks as well. And for the cake, well $7 per person is outrageous. My fiance and I will take the cake that comes with the package for the tradition of cutting the cake and letting our guests just enjoy the desserts that come with the buffet. Much less to stress about,

Sooo apparently the "silver bar" package is included with the buffet at $74 per person.... The "gold bar" package is $8 per person PER HOUR.... Which for a one hour cocktail hour and 3 hour dinner reception comes to $32 per person for the gold bar.... I freaked out when I saw that!! I thought it was only 8$ per person! She said the silver bar has a charge for the hour but its still confusing. I'm emailing her tonight to clarify AGAIN! I asked her if its an "all inclusive" resort why would I pay $32 a person for their drinks.... That's just crazy! And with 65 people booked you think they'd throw ya a break somewhere!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
