Worried about wedding

Recommended Posts

Definitely the manager... The WC would have to take your requests to the manager for approval and how she presents the information to him will affect his decision. But tell the WC you appreciate her efforts but plan on contacting management as you realize she is just relaying the booking information to you and she probably doesn't have any authority over the bookings side of the business. That way, she isn't put off by your action if you continue to pursue having the wedding there and she winds up still being the WC for you.


Prepare yourself with facts--- how far in advance you've booked your wedding, how many rooms you wanted to block, how many guests you expected, and what you were expecting to spend yourselves and as a group in his hotel. Tell him/her your expectations for resolution (ie- providing alternate wedding site at sister hotel with accommodtions, serious discount in your pricing, freebies, etc...) and *aim high* as a start to negotiating.


Expect to be led to a desk supervisor or way-layed from speaking with a manager. Normal business procedures with most companies. Leave a message if you have to with an expectation of a return call (ie, need to hear back within 48 hours or else you'll have to look elsewhere for your wedding needs).


You can do it--- remember, Mexico is known for negotiations! :)

Hi, I know this thread is really old but hoped jdweinbe will still get this message. I just wondered how your wedding went and what happened with the 80 oercent rule as I have a similar problem. We are getting married there and when we booked we booked enough rooms for everyone but now people are booking to stay at other riu hotels thinking that they will have access to ours which after booking they've discovered they don't, I initially had just the right numbers staying at our hotel and other riu hotels but now more people have booked othe riu hotels and just wondeed whether they'd make an exception for othe riu hotel guest.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
