And the official answer is...... Wait, are you ready for it?

No way no how are we getting the Blue Terrace!

Because we haven't paid our balance yet (due Monday), nothing is considered "official." They consider us to have been in "negotiations" up until now and therefore feel they have the right to change or renege on promises made.

We added it up and in total our party is paying over $24,000 just for the rooms. We will have almost 15% of the rooms at the resort while we're there. We helped get them to capacity, and now that they're operating at full capacity, we get screwed. There are not enough censors for what I'm feeling toward them!!
Taylor, that is terrible. I am SOOO sorry they are being so difficult to work with. I agree with you; you should see if you can find a restaurant in the area or another place where you can have your reception. Maybe once Karisma realizes that are losing out on however much you would have spent on the reception, they might be willing to try and re-negotiate. Especially if any other brides are like you, and if Karisma is suddenly about to be out some serious cash, they might be willing to work with y'all!

On a side note, I was one day away from signing my contract with Occidental Grand Xcaret when my TA called me about AS and how they would price match for me. woohoo for good deals!! smile29.gif

Did you talk to Fabio? When they changed a policy on me, my TA called the head wedding coordinator and it was agreed upon that because they had told me in writing I could have one thing, they could not go back on it. I can't believe they are doing that to you!

I read a post today that kind of made me go Uh ohh!

Someone said that Destination Weddings really pushes Karisma hotels and I noticed that at first she was pushing me there and I said I thought it would be too expensive but my TA said no she didn't think ti would be out of my budget.

I guess it doesn't matter because so far from what I have seen and researched I love the look of both AB and AS. But just don't want to think that my TA (who I happen to like) has "gotten one over on me"

I guess that is just me being paranoid/silly though b/c if I am happy with my decision to check them out then I shouldn't care how or why I chose them.

ok enough rambling sorry....
Sounds like we may have the same destination weddings TA. I had never even heard of Karisma resorts until my TA told me about them and then she sent over pictures and said she had just visited the resort and how beautiful it was. She did conveniently leave off how much everything costs. At this point I'm so far into planning that it doesn't matter but I did feel like once I said I was open to the Riviera Maya area she pushed this resort on me and didn't really show me any others.

We tried that argument. I have lots of emails stating we could have the Blue Terrace. My TA is trying everything possible and working on it as we speak!

Wow! I had a lot to catch up on today.

 

Taylor.. that is terrible. My fingers are crossed for you. I really hope Karisma opens their eyes and stops being so backwards with all of these conditions that they suddenly impose. It's not right and not fair to to us and our guests to re-nag on anything promised.

 

Lolo - All the best to you! Have a wonderful time and enjoy every minute!!!

Ummm what?? When did I suddenly become a memberhuh.gif? YAY!!! No more Noob - No more Junior... that's right I'm a Member here!

 

That's about one of the only good things that's happened this week. Unfortunately my company had a bad year, which means no bonuses. Pay raises are minimal. I did get promoted, but based on the pay raises... it didn't turn out how I'd hoped. I know I should never count on a bonus but part of me was hoping I'd have a little more money for some more fun things in the wedding budget. C'est la vie...

    • 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
