Ladies,  I am on step 2 of planning. A lot of people are iffy about seafood (besides my fiancé and I, when we saw surf and turf we were like YUMMMM!!!!!)... anyways we have opted for the beef tenderloin wellington, sounds yummy. I am not a fan of ANY of the starters though... I sent an email asking about a basic ceaser salad or something. Has anyone had any of the same experiences?

PS- for strawberry package each extra plate over 15 people is now $70 USD.

 

Also, we are having a symbolic ceremony, so they deducted the $300 off our final cost... that being said, who do they use to conduct the ceremony?... The wedding planner said we can have a minister (religious) or a justice of the peace... don't these still cost money?

I'm going to ask about this. We are having the symbolic ceremony as well but have not been offered a reduction in costs!

Yeah when I received my wedding package on spreadsheet excel to fill out step one the 300$ was deducted. to equal 3400$

 

I have read that the 300 goes directly to the minister/JP in cash.. but im having a symbolic ceremony, so I don't need anyone special doing it... I wonder who barcelo usually uses

Sorry ladies, yet another question about photographers. I'm having a hard time trying to figure this out. I told my WC that I will be booking a room and including the photographer and videographer in my guest count. She told me that if the photographer is coming from the states then the fee does not apply. But NO he's a photographer from there...Does this mean I'm still being charged the $500?? I'm sooo confused!!  :huh:  :huh:

 

How exactly did you set it up for your photographer?

@@NurseNurse0101,

 

We are getting married on June 4th and asked our WP Victoria about the increase in prices. If you mention it,  I believe they will honour the lower price on the brochure they gave you in the first place (so $66 vs $70).

GET OUT!!!! That's insane! So on top of the room stay we do have to pay for the vendor fee... what a rip off! I was thinking of just paying the $500 and no room stay but I need him to come back the next day for my TTD session which will be in the resort  :unsure:

So I need to vent real quick..... I was at the mall tonight buying jewelry and another bride to be was next to me. We started talking about our weddings and it just so happens she's getting married at the Riu in Mexico. When I told her we were getting married at the Barcelo she went off on how she did a site visit and listed 100 things she hated about it. Mind you I have never been and our wedding is in 3 weeks. My first thought was how ignorant can a person be and now I'm nervous since I have never been there. She said the beach, food ,reception areas and so on were terrible! She also said the palmares grill is way too big for a wedding of 46 people after I said that's where we decided. Someone give me some reassurance!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
