Unless you have the free wedding - then that person is included.
 



That's what I originally wanted to do, but my FI's friend who does weddings won't be able to make the wedding...and nobody else wants to do it sad.gif  We ended up getting a minister from the hotel.  Boo...

Ladies-

 

For anyone who has already paid their bill, do they charge us in US Dollars or Pesos?  When they charge us in Pesos, the credit card company charges a fee.  My friend got charged this fee when she booked her room.  Just wondering if anyone else got charged a conversion fee or if the charge was for US $$$.  Amex is 2.7% and others are 3% so it definitely adds up!

 

thanks!

I was charged in US dollars as well. Did you book directly through the hotel or have a TA? I used a TA and was not charged anything. How strange.

We were charged in dollars for the wedding deposit and our contract is in dollars, yet when we booked our room, they charges us in Pesos and I got the fee charge!  Booo.

Thanks Natalie & RosiePosie for the transportation help!  I contacted CancunTransfers and they are super helpful and very quick to resond.  We think we are going to use cabs though, since it will be cheaper.  :)

 

I can't wait to leave for Mexico for my friend's wedding.  I can't imagine how I'll feel next year when it's mine!

Have a good weekend everyone!  ALMOST Friday!!

I have the luxury package and my WC never quoted an additional charge for the cake/champagne toast, but I never specifically requested a champagne toast. I wonder if the extra price is because of the champagne. We're not going to have a champagne toast. It doesn't seem worth it when some people don't drink champagne and there's an open bar so people will already have drinks in their hands!

I signed my contract in January, so I got the rates from last year. I'm paying $20 pp for the cocktail and $60 pp for the reception for our non-resort guests. We have 11 so far!  When I got my final bill they were trying to charge me a higher rate for non-resort guests, but I asked the WC to change it back to the prices that were quoted when I signed my contract. It was not a problem at all.  You should double check the prices that were posted when you signed your contract and make sure they give you those prices. Don't let them get away with increasing the prices on you!  
 



 I signed my contract late december '09, so that should apply to me too. The weird thing is that in the package lower than ours, there is a charge of 10 pp (non real) for champ/cake, but in luxury it doesn't mention anything like that, much less 20 pp for that. Grrr

ladies, how do you edit your posts?

 

I would ask them to take it off then. Are you really set on the champagne toast? If not, then I'm sure they'd remove the charge. Who's your WC? I was working with Maritza. She didn't even question me when I told her the prices on the spreadsheet were incorrect. I told her what the prices were when I signed my contract and she fixed it and sent it back to me. No questions asked.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
