So it's official, I have left DW.com and am now with The weddingholiday.com. We will see how it goes. It is soo exciting. In 24 hours i had a quote and booked my 10 seats. So happy with  my decision of changing. I was wondering does anyone who is getting married near the 31st of May want to share a photgrapher with me? Please get back to me. Thanks guys!

I think we're going to skip hiring the wedding planner. 

Now, do you have any suggestions for TA's...preferrably a GI one so we can get the extra bonuses?huh.gif

 

 

Hi!  I just sent you a private message.  I just had some bad experiences with a few of the TA's that are mentioned...but mentioned badly too!  I just found mine to be wonderful.  (so far, and yes, I haven't done much but reserve the spots for the wedding --sky too, and the reception).  But, she was quick to get my date, my rate and my group locked in and never pressured me.

So happy for you.  Sounds like you made the right decision.  And already things are looking up  :-)

Not sure if someone already answered this but it is the lowest number of nights in the lowest level room. Basically you add up what that would be and deduct from your room cost, meaning that you don't have to stay in the lowest level room you just have that amount given back as a refund after the your stay. That part stinks too...the fact that it is a refund and not a true disocunt but hey it is something. I think we will get about $950 back when it is all said and done. We are staying for a week in the luxury swim up suite (we got a free upgrade too) for about $1200 total after our discount. I think that's a pretty great price.

Just curious if any of you have gotten an explanation on how the B&G stay free promo works.  I just emailed Carolina to check.  My TA had said it is based on whichever number of nights is most prominent in your rooms, but the contract makes it seem like whatever is the lowest amount.  Most of our guests are booked at 4 nights with some others at 3, 5, and 7 nights.  So, I'm hoping we get at least the 4 night figure back at the end, not just the 3 since that ones the lowest.  Hmmmm

Ladies, of course I have been MIA....that's because I leave in 4 days!!!! So much left to do but I feel like I finally have a handle on it. I am leaving work shortly and going to pick up my dress. Finally. These alterations have been one disaster after another but hopefully it will be done today so I cross the biggest to-do off the list. Wish me luck.

My TA told me that we needed to come in on Wednesday for a Sunday wedding (symbolic). Seemed like way too much time to waste before the wedding, but they were adamant about it. Oh well, I guess I can't do anything about it now. Just bummed because I would have liked to come in on Thursday or Friday for the Sunday wedding and stay for longer after.

 

We are very lucky that my father has given us a honeymoon in Maui for a week. So, we will come home from Mexico for 3 weeks and then head to Maui for a change of scenery and a real deal honeymoon (without guests).

For the legal ceremony here I paid $25 for the license and $70 for the ceremony.  I got married at the county administration building in Prince George's County (right by the bridal shop.)  I think the costs vary by county but it shouldn't be that much difference in price.  You just have to wait 3 days from the time you get the license until you actually get married (and that may vary by county too). 

 

We got to the resort on Thursday around 2 or 3 and we had our meeting on Friday for the Saturday wedding so you getting there on Thursday for a Monday wedding shouldn't be a problem at all.
 





Oh man, this is great to know. I hear Airtran is having a lot of deals right now. Again, we already booked ours, bad planning on our part, but good to know for guests. I was also researching prices for Decemeber. I hear everyone goes for a "site visit" is that discounted from the TA in any way??

Congratulations from me as well. Choosing the right TA for you makes your life a trillion times easier.

I've been so busy with work, I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of small details I should be doing now. Hopefully, this weekend and next week will be better!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
