Although my mom did make a good point...if people don't like dinner, they can grab something after since it's all inclusive:)
yeah i forgot the beach receptions were different on this (most likely due to them not wanting to schlep individual dinners out to the location ... they can set up the buffet and be done with it). i agree, only offering one option for dinner is ridiculous. we have people with allergies, vegetarians, kids, and just plain picky people ... they had better let us do a buffet! even with the buffet, it will be hard to appease my crowd, since almost every option has seafood or citrus in it (we have people allergic to both). claudia said they can accommodate vegetarians, yet there is no vegetarian option on the menu. what a pain.

tell her to not even present it at the ceremony ... have her just box it up and send it to your room for when you have the drunken munchies later that night.

or, it may be just the right size for smashing in FMIL's face if she gets out of line, lol! S&M.gif

Ahhhh...this is so frustrating! I just want to scream! Cecilia offered me 10 more people for dinner initately for the cocktail. Now she wants to take it back after I filled out the Q&A Questionaire. She said she will only offer it to me if I have the number of guests shown on my Questionaire. What the ##! I can't believe this. Can they just take back what they have already offerred? This is so stupid! It's an all inclusive resort. I don't understand what the big deal is when food is free there anyway. I'll be bringing alot of business to them as I'd plan to have 45-50 guests and they will be all staying at the resort. And yet, they nickel and dime me. I might as well go with the free wedding package.

i'd be really frustrated too, but honestly i don't think you can hold them to any negotiations or offers until you are under contract.

i'm still annoyed at how much the extra guests cost when it's all-inclusive, but i'm getting over it. it's really the private setup and service you are paying for, but yeah still annoying. smile03.gif

Kate, I know exactly what you mean. It is really frustrating dealing with Claudia or any of the WCs. It seems they don't understand the concept of revenue that additional guests will bring vs. the very little food costs they will incur. They should throw the food in for free for additional guests in my opinion. I am really annoyed with Dreams and am actually limiting the number of people that I will be inviting to the wedding! For the economy the way it is and the travel conditions in Mexico currently, they are pretty unaccomodating. I think if several of us emailed and demanded that they stick to their word in terms of what they have already offered that may straighten them out.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
