Jamie, Did you ever find out about avilability at the resort our wedding week?

I used to work in jewelry so I have this whole sizing thing down to a T!  :)

not sure if you're getting married on the sky deck or not but beware lol I used tall glasses and 4 broke in transit to the wedding 1 broke while they were setting them up and another one toppled over during the ceremony while my mom was walking down the aisle LOLOL so if you use them make sure there is something heavy weighing them down so that the wind doesnt knock them over =)

Or if not the bouquets, then other florals, like these hanging bouquets (or balls) that can double as ceremony/reception decor. I hate waste (money or stuff!) haha...

Have you tried following up with the hotel directly? They tried to feed us that crap....they also tried to make us pay a higher room rate than what they were offering on THEIR WEBSITE!!! We just pushed back they were adding and taking away rooms for us the whole time. btw I had a bunch of ppl pay for "ocean view" rooms and everyone got the same room ....non ocean view. smh

 

Also, Remember that you gave everyone enough time to handle their business and book their rooms and if they did not you can not stress yourself about it....the ppl that really want and need to be there will be there. Also there are plenty of very very close hotels all in that same area. We didnt realize but zoetry was literally 10 minutes from sensatori and you didnt have to go on to the main road to get there. Also cancun is about a 20-25 minute ride away not very far at all they can come to the wedding and stay at a different resort.

question did the resort only give you 2 months to put down a deposit? we were given 4 but we also put down some of the money to do that but we had to fight for it.

We were only given 30 days to put a $100 deposit down per person. Then all rooms have to be paid in full 63 days out (which seemed a little strict!). According to our TA, that was "better than most deals out there" - is she wrong?

We didn't have to put down a deposit for people. Once they called to book each person paid their own deposit. My TA held off a block of rooms until our rsvp date and even after that she still held a few rooms for late-comers. Everyone was given the option to make payments as long as they were paid in full 45 days prior to departure which some people still didn't do. The ones that didn't called her and made arrangements. I don't think my sister paid in full until 30 days prior. I'm sure this is different based on the TA and the time of year though. We just went in November and we only had 2 guests that were unable to attend BUT they tried to book 2 weeks before the wedding!

No, I didn't call the hotel.  Truthfully, I kind of freaked out and didn't think about that, but I will.  I guess that was officially my first "moment" and hopefully my last! 

 

My DW.com specialist had higher rates than the website too, so for those who booked, I had to get a price match.  She was able to do that much for me.  I would have thought she would have notified me that the resort was sold out, but not the case.  But then again, I would have thought she would always be getting them the best price too.  I sent out a blog to people last night and gave them 3 alternate resorts last night.  It was Friday night, and so far 2 have booked at the alternate hotels and apologized for dragging their feet. 

 

I'm feeling better about things this morning, because you are right, if they really want to be there, they will make it happen.  We are still going to have a great day!  My deposit was $200 per room and the rooms had to be purchased in 30 days and then they would be charged to me.  Because of the short purchase time I only booked 5 rooms because I did not want to be stuck paying for the remaining rooms after the 30 days because I know how some of my folks like to drag their feet on things.  I wonder why I was only given 30 days?

 

BTW, I booked Cancun Video!!!!  Thanks so much!  I was not impressed with the photographers at Karisma, and since your photographer was not available, we are just going to take the 36 photos from our package, and splurge on the video for memories.  THX so much for the recommendation.  I'm surprising my FI with the video, as it was very important for him that we try to get video.  He has no idea the video in store for him!  Hopefully he will not find out until we get there.  I've been going through my ipod trying to decide what music to give them!  rolleyes.gif

My contract was $200 per room, they had 30 days to book their rooms, and anything not booked in that time-frame would have to be paid by me until it was booked.  I was not aware of any deadline date of 63 days .  With money going all over the place for other wedding-related issues, I was not willing to have $2000 just out there hanging for 10 rooms, so I did 5 rooms for $1000.  Hindsight is I should have booked a larger block of rooms, but my wedding was almost 9 months out, and I'm not sure that would have mattered if there was a deadline date for the guests to book.  My guests were able to get on a monthly payment plan for up to 6 months. 

 

You have enough time before your wedding to really stress to your people that this could happen so that you don't end up in the same situation.  Be sure to let them know it is a very real situation!  I don't want it to happen to anyone else.

That seems weird. My TA and I booked the block of rooms in Aug and had till mid november to fill them. also we have added people every week since mid nov. All of our payments are due 45 days out. Guests, wedding the works. My TA and I told our guest it had to be paid in full 60 days out just to give ourselves some wiggle room.

He hasn't gotten the % back from the right person yet.  But I did just get confirmation that Memorial Day weekend is full.  Its getting scary how much everything is getting full!  Hopefully this will help our guests get on the ball!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
