      27 dresses - i feel awful for you, but you have to do what's right for you! Good luck!

      Heather - I'm glad you posted. I was starting to feel like a whiner with all of my complaining, but seriously I agree, everything is so much money. Maybe if they charged REASONABLE amounts for extra's I wouldn't care so much but I still can't get over the freakin $100 for a plain sheet LMAO!!! I thought maybe it was all the resorts that charge that much..... Oh well. At this point its too late for me to look back, and I don't regret my decision to get married at the Sensatori but I do wish I would have known how crazy all of these prices were.
      On a more positive note - I truly feel like even though I'm skimping out on pretty much all of the extra options, my wedding will still be amazing!

        27 dresses, that's so sad and must have been such a hard decision to make but I totally understand why you reached the decision you did.

        we purposefully chose a destination wedding as the cheaper option to getting married in the UK - now its not looking quite so obvious.

        good luck with whatever you decide to do...sounds like Cuba's a great option!!!

        Katie.

          27 dresses---you should ask Karisma for a $3000 credit towards a stay there or better yet at El Dorado Maroma which would be great for a honeymoon.

          Good luck with whatever you work out!

            Nikki, I'm with you...it's way too late to do anything about it now, but I also don't regret my decision. At the end of the day, I know if I wanted I could go out there, pay for next to nothing and just get married and be just as happy. although the prices are ridiculous, and yes, i moan as much as the next time, its still a decision we make to have the extras or not.

            my wedding will be amazing because I will be there surrounded by my family and those closest to me, and promising myself to my soulmate for the rest of my life. nothing could be more perfect.

Also, they do get a welcome cocktail as they are seated which should hold people for at least an hour. Also if we have music going for them it should be fine. I'm not paying for a cocktail hour and horderves at ANOTHER location.

              I'm having my private dinner @ Zocollo Terrace because it's large, enclosed with a bar, room to dance and you can pull the shades if it gets cold, windy or rainy. I believe the minimum is 40 guests though.

              For my 40 person meal at Spoon, I already booked it. I figured I might as well since I know I wanted a Sunday farewell brunch for my guests and I got a confirmation from Kiara, my WC.
              yeah i think we'll get one of the guests to tell people what's going on after we've walked back down the asile.

              see, i don't get that - Tiffany gave me the option of all the reception areas but she knows our party size so why suggest it?? that's what annoys me.

              ah well...I've got ages to go and already I just want to get there!!

              wedding dress shopping on Saturday!! wahoooooo!!!!!! lol

                I am not sure if I should be happy or throw up...I just checked on the room rates because I have a guest who wants to stay an extra week. I thought I would check Karisma's website for yucks! Their room rates are almost $150 less a night than what I was given from my coordinator at Karisma, with my group discount.

                WTF I can't wait to see what they come back and tell me next.

                  We need to talk to some past Sky Deck brides!
                  KittenHeart,

                  Did your contact at the resort say anything about having over 40 people for your Spoon restaurant dinner? I noticed it says 46 booked on your signature. I think we will have closer to 50 and I am hoping they will still let us use that. Otherwise, we lose the whole thing!! How ridiculous is that?

                    I asked Tiffany what happens if we have more than 40 people and she told me it is $25 for each additional person. If there is more than 50 people,she will have to request special permission from the resort. I am sure they will work something out for you.

                      Getting married in Cuba would be really cool but the travel would be insane for us girls in the Sates. It is awesome you got to get such a great deal Heather!
