From what they told me...it seems as though if you have been married before you do have to do all the other things originally required. I would check with your WC just in case...I am certainly not a wealth of knowledge on this subject

Shay, did you notice also that in the Luxury Package is says "option for the couple to arrive 2 days prior to event?" It's amazing how it went from 4 days then I saw 3 and now 2?? Geez!

Holy Cow, that is crazy! They have added packages and changed packages and made the reception costs cheaper! Now its $25 pp! OMG!

WOW! I'm so glad to hear that the wedding/reception packages are coming down!! I didn't know this, but am VERY excited about it! Very good to know!

 

As for package rates...we are using a travel agent, and she has some rooms and seats reserved for us, from Van BC at $2200/each! that included tax and is for the standard jr suite...but still pretty pricey!! So far only 5 rooms have been reserved, we have put down our deposits and the remaining isn't due until September so that is nice. IF the winter rates come in lower, then we will get a price adjustment. I'm hoping that they come down! but that doesn't sound like it's happening...

 

I can't wait to hear all the reviews that should be rolling in pretty soon!

Good luck to all of you that are almost there!! smile29.gif

Ok I went out and looked and I see the $25 is for addition people outside the number allowed per package and there is still a reception pp rate. BUT they are allowing receptions in the resturants in some of the packages! So if money gets tight that is an option.

 

Shannon, I had originally gone with the Classic package but now I want to change to the Luxury package- do you think they will let me change to the bigger package?

Oh my gosh I am so overwhelmed right now. I just got back to town from Seattle (my uncle had a heart attack) and I hadn't been keeping up with the posts. Its so crazy when you read so many and as you are reading you want to comment but you have to keep reading and then you lose track of all you want to say....

 

First off, Shay and Kriswim I can't believe you are leaving so soon, still wish I would get to see you when you are there. I leave in 2 1/2 weeks myself so trying to get as much done as possible at this time, its def crunch time. I e-mailed Zulma 10 days ago with a ton of questions and information and then resent the e-mail 2 days ago and still haven't heard back. We haven't chosen anything yet officially just have our own ideas of what we are planning on doing. We don't know about the package yet either and I got confused by all these posts because it sounded like you were saying everything was going up but yet then others said $25pp with the new rates which is over half of what we were quoted.

As far as the post about the 3 nights for $600 at The Royal is that for 2 people? That is way less expensive than what we are paying. We are paying that for 2 nights. maybe prices are finally coming down due to the economy but it sounds like for those of us already booked we are getting screwed on this end of things. NOt sure if I simply read it wrong.

Shay I can't believe that you got everything in one bag. I feel like we are going to have 10 bags!! between the ott bags and contents, fans, starfish, 2 wedding dresses, chair bows, fiance's suit etc. seems like we are going to have sooo much to carry. We are hoping to disperse some of it to other people who are travelling the day after we leave.

As far as the legal marriage thing. I have been running around like crazy researchig how to get the apostilles from our birth states and tranlation etc. I luckily avoided the $700 in fees that I was quoted to hire someone to do it for us but will be annoyed if it was all not necessary to do. You would think this is something they should tell their brides about since the website the WC told me about quoted me so much money. I just wish I knew what was accurate. Either way I now have them translated and apostilled.

Thats about it...so excited myself as its just coming up so quickly and we have 46 people and 2 kids confirmed!!

Yah, like...in the original Luxury Package I was quoted on, there was no Reception meal AT ALL included...only the cold hors d'oeuvres...now...the HDs are still included, but so is a reception meal for up to 35 people (anyone over the 35 mark, is $25 pp if they are staying at the resort). All of the other packages below the Luxury state that the Reception is "Semi-Private, for 1 1/2 hours in a restaurant"...The Luxury Package now states that it is a "Private function for 3 hours up to 35 guests"...do you suppose that means it would still apply to someone like me who was arranging to have our reception on the beach?

I think I'm going to call my WC just to see if there is any reason we won't get the extras now included...I mean...technically....we're paying for them.

Also, I absolutely think if you're interested in spending more money...they definitely won't try to stop you! You still have lots of time too...so...it says specifically something along the lines of ... things must be booked one month in advance .... so...yah, go for it!

Shay - Let us know what you find out from your WC about the new prices. I'm very interested to find out if the luxury package includes the reception on the beach.

 

Thank you!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
