Thanks for your help =)
I received my contract form Claudia a few days ago, and my wedding is not until August, with a request to sign it and send a $500 deposit. I did not sign the contract as there are several things on the contract i wanted to change or choose and said that i will sign it when it is changeed. As far as number of guests I am not sure when you need to commit by. As far as i understand you can make as many changes to your contract as you want even when you get to your meeting with the WC when you arrive at the resort.

Cool, thanks Nadine.

Wow - i am really interested to know what the per person add-on price is now... $50 vs. $93?! Big difference! Does the $50 not include the tax/service fee maybe?

I'll see if i can find the breakdown, its in this thread somewhere, It was something like $25per person extra for cocktail hour and 65? extra for dinner. I am not sure exactly on the numbers but it was quite rediculous. If you opt to not have the cocktail hour then your per person charge is less for the extra people because you only have to pay the extra for dinner.

OK...so i don't know how to attach the documents that Cecilia sent me...so i'll write it out....and this was just sent to me last week so its for the 2010 year.

For Cocktail Hour: Gold or Silver Menu appetizers + 1 hr international open bar = $26/person

Reception: Siver or gold menu includes 3 hour international open bar = $48/person

Additional Hour International open bar = $15/person/hour

These prices don't include 10% tax and 15% gratuity.

Hope this helps!!

Maybe it's $93 for cocktail hour and dinner. That makes more sense. I am skipping the cocktail hour since all the guests can drink for free at the lobby bar anyway. A lot of the brides on this forum have done that and said it worked out wonderfully. I exchanged the cocktail hour for 15 extra people at dinner since we are having 43 guests and only 20 are covered in the package. The price I was quoted for dinner was $42 + 15% service fee + 10% tax so a total of $52.50 per person. Hope that helps clarify.

Oh okay - wow I agree that is really high, especially if you have a ton of extra guests! I'm hoping to keep mine to 20-25 max, so hopefully it will work out for me. It definitely might be worth it to swap out the cocktail hour though.

That makes sense about the difference between cocktail and dinner and just dinner. We're having 50 guests and a private welcome dinner so I'm trying to see if they can work something out like giving us the dance floor...will let you know ladies!!

Be persistent about what you want. It took a lot of effort and complaining, but I eventually did a cost analysis of the swaps they were giving me and the amount of revenue they were getting frommy guests and was able to get everything I asked for. It pays to be a pain:)

I'm going to skip the cocktail hour for sure! Hopefully they will agree to give me 15 extra people at the reception because we have anywhere from 40-55 people coming...$52 seems reasonable.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
