That is great!! we will have to meet for a quick hello sometime while we are down there! because I'm sure we will both be busy bees!!

 

As far as wedding package, I am a little confused. I qualify for the complimentary package, but I also was looking into "unforgettable" package that includes dinner for 25 people. I guess there really was not point in trying to qualify for the "complimentary" package if it doesn't include what I need.

 

I love your centerpieces idea. That's a great way to cut costs!

 

How many people are coming down for your wedding?

Are you doing a wedding package? Our package includes 25 ppl, private reception on the Mexican Terrace. As far as I know, we only have to pay extra for any one over 25 people. She hasn't mentioned anything to me about drinks, so I'm assuming it's included. 

 

We are also skipping the DJ and using the bridesmaids bouquets as centrepieces to save costs.

So far the negotiations with me are slim to none, and I agree about some of the things the packages include.

 

I think cutting the cocktail hour is fine! I mean, if you want it, then do it, but i don't think it's necessary. Everyone can go to the same bar, it would practically be the same thing.

My FI and I chose to have a DW to save money but I might as well have a wedding in the states bc i do not see how I am saving. Does anyone feel in the packages they include unnecessary services that you are already paying some how? Are they negotiating with anyone or giving anyone breaks? I am trying to figure out how to cut costs, any suggestions I would love to hear.

 

So far I am excluding flower centerpieces and just having the boutineer for groom and just having boutquetsfor me and my girls . I am thinking of possibly cutting out the cocktail hour and I was thinking while I take pictures the guests can go to restaurant or bar since its all inclusive then meet for the private reception at a certain time.What does anyone think of this idea? OK or bad? I just cant believe how much they charge for appetizers, alcohol, cake, champagne and dinner per person after the amount included in the package when it is already all inclusive. My guests love to dance so I need to have a DJ. What decorations are you bringing and how are you getting them there? They charge for every little thing. How else can you save money?

 

Thanks Ladies!!!!

We have exactly 25 right now, but we're expecting about 35.

 

MrsAlmaquer - $300??? I had heard $100. We are also having an outside photographer. Dear god I hope it's not $300 - that's RIDICULOUS!

I am so glad I am not alone on this.  I am really happy with the service and the hotel so far, but I am being overwhelmed with the extra cost of things for the wedding.  We expect to have approx. 50 people attending all staying at the hotel.  It is very frustrating especially knowing what other hotels that are comparable comp. for their brides.  I am trying to just suck it up and move forward, but I agree that it is def overboard.

I thought it was $100?!?! I was never told this by her, but I thought it was listed somewhere in this thread. $300 is ridiculous!!  I might as well just pay for the photographer to stay overnight - it'll probably be cheaper!!
