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   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

                      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.
