    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

     

    My TA told me that it's based on the lowest class room that anyone in your group gets.  For me it was 3 nights in a Jacuzzi Jr. So the credit was the price per person times 2 for 3 nights in a Jacuzzi Jr. suite MINUS the taxes and transfers (even though I only had 4 out of 50 people stay for 3 nights in a jacuzzi jr).  I was told that it is issued as a refund, not as a discount towards your room (but I believe another bride said she was able to use hers for a room for her photographer.) 

     

    WHATEVER YOU DO MAKE SURE YOU GET IT IN WRITING AND ON YOUR CONTRACT!!!!  I've been going back and forth with dw.com regarding this promotion since I got back from my wedding on August 5th!  When I got home, after going back and forth with my TA for over a month she told me that since it wasn't written into my contract I wasn't eligible for it.  So I ended up going to management and had to send them all the emails between me and my TA and finally last Friday I was told that I would be issued the refund.  I still haven't gotten it yet.  They said I should have it by the end of this week or the beginning  of next week.  So if I don't have it by next Wednesday, I guess I'll be back on the phone.

      I'm full of questions!!  What is a typical amount to spend on your Bridesmaids gifts? 


      I got them all a pair of designer sunglasses.  I ended up getting them all off ebay so they were cheaper than they would've been in the store.  The prices were different for each pair.  $50 (Juicy Couture) $90 (Marc Jacobs), $100 (D&G) and $160 (Christian Dior).  I gave my maid of honor the most expensive pair because I felt like she did the most to help me with the wedding. 

       

      I also paid for them to have their make-up done for the wedding.

      If they just suggested you get there earlier I wouldn't worry about it.  Just tell her it's not in your budget.  I don't know what the requirements are for a legal ceremony but for a symbolic ceremony you only have to be there two days before the wedding.  We got there on Thursday and our wedding was on Saturday.  If you're doing a legal wedding and they're saying you have to change your arrival because of that you maybe you can change it to a symbolic wedding and get married in the US legally before or after your Mexico wedding.  I've heard some horror stories about the legal process in Mexico so I just went with the symbolic ceremony there and got legally married in Maryland the day before we left for Mexico.

        Yeah, I remember your horror story with this, and I'm kind of in the same boat.  Not many rooms booked at the 3 nights, but I'm sure that's the discount I will get, which blows.  You're bringing that much business there, they should at least make their incentives worth while.  Anyways, I'm just going to assume it's the least amount, and I hope yours gets sorted out, and they give you your money!!!

        What were the costs associated with the symbolic marriage in Mexico and what you paid in MD?  I'm in MD too, Charles County.  I think you're from Upper Marlboro right.  I got my wedding dress from CM Bridal there. 

         

        MY WC has said if I can get a flight to get me there early on Thurs, she will arrange all the meetings on Thurs/Fri so we should be good.  Hopefully it all works out.

          I don't think there's a difference in cost for a symbolic vs. legal marriage at the resort but if I would've gotten legally married at the resort we would've had to get there on Tuesday which probably would've cost another $1,000. 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.

            BTW I'm not sure if you've booked your flight yet but Airtran has a direct flight from BWI to Cancun and it's usually pretty reasonable.  The majority of my guests took that flight and it was $345.

                  Daniepps, did you have this listed on your sheet or did you work this out with the onsite coordinators?

                    Danielle, this was in reference to your comment about one of the WC's helping with your IPOD.  Also, did you get the IPOD dock and amplifier are there costs associated with each?  I"m confused based on what i've learned so far.

                      Nope, I'm waiting patiently for them to release their fares for our time frame.  Definitely prefer nonstop!!

                      Oh, and my May Brides, my TA emailed me tonight and said that the resort is filling up (at least for the first week).  Just wanted to give you a heads up if you still have people to book.
