Okay, after hearing Taylor's story, I'm a little bit worried. If you go to the Karisma hotels website, and click on the weddings, then the private event banquet package, they have completely changed all of the menus, and they are over double/triple what I had been planning on paying (I was using one of the set menus). The reason I was concerned was because I sent in my details sheet last week with the menu on it, and when Tiffany sent it back, she had taken it off. So I resent it to her again, and now I'm just waiting to hear from her. I haven't paid off my balance, so I hope she doesn't tell me that the menus have changed--I really don't think I could afford to have a private reception with the new prices posted....

Ouch! Are you kidding me? I don't get how they can do this to people?

This week when people were mentioning their TA pushing Karisma... it happened to us with the our TA in Canada. We told her what we wanted and she kept bringing up Karisma, how wonderful they are, that if she were to get married all over again this is where she would do it... hmmm I wonder how much commission they actually pay the TA's or what perks they get from them?

I'm getting really worried about all off these changes and the way they have no issue implementing changes without informing anyone ahead of time or informing them once they've taken place. It's dispointing to plan your dream wedding, get exicted about something and then to have it taken away. Not cool.

Oh yeah the new menu options are soooo expensive! I saw them yesterday. I think I am going to call Monday and make sure my sheet is still in tact.

 

I have a couple lawyers in the family I will have to get involved if I start getting screwed.

 

I read my contract with them last night, and in no way did it say terms and conditions and offerings were able to be changed.

I actually am not worried about all these changes... that may sound cocky but I really think we can all get our way. That would be SERIOUSLY foolish for them to change policy willy-nilly after offering us options and then take them away. They'd go out of business in a year.

 

I emailed my WC just in case to ensure that the food and prices for what I've already chosen remain.

 

I hope I'm not wrong but I think we should all relax just a little bit because stressing for the next 1-2 months over our weddings aren't going to make things any better.

 

I'm so certain that everything will work out, just bring evidence with you of emails and what was agreed upon down with you to the onsite coordinators and nicely demand they be adhered to.

Gah I'm so confuuuuuused! Tiffany had said that I could do a private reception for $14 pp, Tiffany says "This dinner event includes a private area, private service staff, and private international open bar, round tables that hold up to 7 people, eating/drinking utensils and chairs with white covers/white bows."

 

So does this include the actual DINNER, or just the private reception (meaning drinks, tables, UTENSILS-gee, thanks!, and chairs)? Do I have to pay above and beyond that for the actual FOOD?

 

Pleeease help :)

Oh, also...Tiffany says for a symbolic ceremony, we have to arrive at the resort two business days before the wedding day, but their website says one business day before. Honestly, it would be so nice to just have some consistency on what it is they're saying.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
