Has anyone else on here commited to the Luxury Package? I'm a bit concerned with what I'm seeing on the Royal site now, with prices and what all is included. For some reason, the price we were quoted a year ago is MORE than what the package is now, and ... we get less stuff...should I be asking about this? Or .... since I leave in a little over a week...just suck it up and forget I even saw the new stuff?
What would you guys do?

Oh fantastic! That totally puts my mind at ease!
I also found out yesterday that they have changed the requirements for getting married. If you have never been married before you now only need your passport, blood tests and arrival thingy from the airport. That totally saved my butt because I got all the wrong paperwork legalized and authenticated...

Maybride- if you don't mind me asking, I've been married before, do you know if I have to follow all of the old requirements with the birth certificate, etc.?

Then, earlier this year, they increased a lot of their packages significantly...the Luxury went from the $2200 to like...$2900 or something. At that time, I suggested to Micaela, our then coordinator that because of when we confirmed, etc, would they honor the original fee? They agreed to do that.
So currently, we are expected to pay $2200USD plus minister fees, plus reception costs, plus day passes for our photographers/video folks, plus we are paying for the photography itself.
Not only has the package price gone DOWN to $2150 (not a huge difference to the original, I know, but...) it includes:
- Professional Photography & 30 Minutes Editted videography of the ceremony (not that I would change our photographer anyways...but...had I known I'd save so much money...things may have been different)
- Spa Service for the Groom ($100 value)
- Two kinds of live music - a soloist for the ceremony and a full hour set with a trio during the reception (currently, we have only discussed the previously included 45 minute set with a mariachi)
- Reception meal for up to 35 guests for up to 3 hours (currently we're paying $50/head)
- Grooms suit pressing
All of these things were NOT included before...and...I kinda feel on one hand, I shouldn't expect them now, because...that's business....but on the other hand, if I'm going to be paying more now...and missing out on all these "extras"...well, I kinda want the extras!
Am I wrong?
