Argh! If I had only known this stupid resort changed prices like they do underwear, I may have rethought choices. I mean- I have read through the thread and knew there were inconsistencies-- but really? My last pricesheet for 2010 that I got awhile back, it said that the mariachis were 560, and now this pricesheet says 785?

 

I know it's only 200 difference, but what if this happens all throughout? We're paying for this wedding ourselves, and need to budget accordingly....

 

Thanks for letting me rant. Geez.

LadyTrunck- do you know if you will get the same prices as the fact sheet you were sent?? Because my 2010 fact sheet is saying that the mariachis were 560 too, and i just got this fact sheet in early Feb. I cannot believe that it would have changed so much already. Also, did much else change, where I should be worried??

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...I agree that it is quite odd that not only do we have to pay a wedding package fee but also an open bar fee and a dinner fee at an all inclusive. Makes no sense.

I just emailed Ael and told her what it says on the Fact Sheet about dinner...can't wait to see what she says back. I'm also wondering why it says dinner is $20 on the sheet, but yet they actually charge $25! And I agree Jannae...there are so many inconsistencies with their prices that who knows what other things we're unaware of right now! It's so hard to plan your budget!

No- thanks for the info Virginia. Gives me more time to figure out what to do next.

 

Jen- can you send me your 2010 fact sheet? All of the ones I was actually looking at were for 2009--- I don't think I realized. jannae.ibarra@gmail.com

 

Katie- I noticed the different prices you gals were saying about food, then different on the fact sheet. FI is NOT going to be a happy camper about all of this either. He's already po'd that we have to pay extra for the open bar.....

This is a tad frustrating... I can't help to think that I have not done my official confirmation. They extended my timeline to May to officially reserve the date. If my heart wasn't so set on the Riu, I would maybe look into other resorts. This place just looks too amazing to give up, will just have to suck it up and take the extra ridiculous charges.

 

Don't worry about being the bearer of bad news Virginia. We'd have to learn this eventually and I'd rather know now and plan for the extra costs then later and be surprised! Just wondering, were those fact sheets from the wedding coordinator?? Mine seems so different then yours, and is more wedding specific (has the types of weddings, photography info, flower costs, etc.)

I agree with all of you that it is ridiculous that they are changing these prices. Jen I got the same thing as you. I say that I'm going off on the information that was sent to me. I will take that down there with me and deal with it then. I've decided I am going to go down there in November and play dumb. I'm going to pretend like I've never heard this stuff before. My FI is the best negotiator and he always gets what he wants (or at least partially).

I sent an inquiry to the Riu group department inquiring about group rates for my wediding group. Miguel Segura, Gabriela Fernandez and Nagheli Escobar are all in sales at Riu (Miguel in group sales and Gabriela and Nagheli in the wedding sales departments). They have each responded about different questions I have asked. They sent me the forms when I was asking for additional costs that I would incur on top of the resort and wedding ceremony fees. I am not sure but I think the per person charge is only if we want a private reception. Semi-private do not have a fee...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
