I think we've picked a place!

Recommended Posts

UPDATE:

YAY! We did it! So far we have a block of 12 rooms, and 5 are booked! So excited!

 

In my other thread explaining how we ended up with Cabo (http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t18070), I had mentioned that we wanted to stay at Royal Solaris, a hotel we've been to many times and love. When I called to check industry discount rates it ended up being a lot more than we usually pay. So, the search began! Today I stumbled upon RIU Santa Fe, and immediately jumped on the forum to see what I could find about it. Then Doug also reminded me of Reviews of vacations, hotels, resorts, vacation and travel packages - TripAdvisor (which I LOVEHEARTLOVE!). My favorite part is how you can see pictures that "real" people have taken with their own cameras, and not just the official ones that the hotel wants you to see.

 

Anyways, we loved what we saw, and they have an amazing industry discount available since the property is so new (just opened Nov 07), and they are trying to drum up customers. We called everyone involved, and told them what we would like to do, and so far they are all on board with the plan! The only problem is we want to book this ASAP (like tomorrow!), but my mom JUST had her downstairs converted from old carpet to hardwood and doesn't have the money for the deposit at the moment. So, we have to keep our fingers crossed, and hope the industry rate is still available next week, or that we can book another room after the initial deposit is set. It’s kinda weird when you non-rev to important events! Oh well, I figure we’ll get her a room whatever we have to do, and if worse comes to worse, we’ll just pay out the nose for a random room for her later. I’m sure we’ll be ok tho, I’m gonna stay positive!

Yay! I remember when that was being built! Has anyone from BDW gotten married there? I can't remember?

 

Wouldn't it just be cheaper if you paid your mom's deposit and she can pay you back? Might be better than paying a lot more later on down the road.

 

 

Congratulations, Abbie!!

That would be a fantastic idea excepr WE don't even have enough for ours! My dad is paying for us. And I don't think my stepmom would be too keen on them paying hers too.. But, you never know! I might just ask anyways..? We'll see!

What great news Abbie! The place looks beautiful! Jessica (Jtds2713) and all her guests stayed there, but she got married at Sunset da Mona Lisa. I think she had a few problems, but hopefully they've worked out all the kinks. Congrats on picking a place!!!!!!cheer2.gif

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
