Free Package @ ROR

Recommended Posts

Quick question on how it works for the Free Wedding Package. I've emailed Chandlyn but she is a busy woman so I thought I'd ask here.

 

I realize you still have to pay for minister/judge fees. I have my own flowers and would only need decorations, dinner, cake and pics.

 

My question is though it states you need to book 5 rooms. Does this mean I have to book all 5 rooms myself or if I have 4 other couples attending (along with myself & FI) would that count?

 

I've currently booked the Royal Package but there are only 6 (hopefully eight) of us going. I wanted that package initially for the flowers, room upgrade etc. but I may not need it now as i have flowers & booked a Jr. Suite.

 

Any thoughts?

You don't have to book the 5 rooms yourself, its the total room count that you have among you & your guests! As long as you & your guests occupy a minimum of 5 rooms, you are set!
We initially booked the Royal Package, but when we got there we decided to go with the Free Package & then we just upgraded whatever we wanted. It worked out much better for us.
Hope that helps you.

Thanks! That's great news then! I'm more comfortable paying for the minister fees etc. instead of paying the $1,000 plus when I don't need it!

 

Now I just have to find 1 more couple to go lol

HI

 

I was going for the caprice package at first then changed my mind to the free. It just works out better in the long run if your on a tight budget.

Personally, this is what I think you need to consider:

# of guests
Reception or just dinner
Resort Flowers or Upgrade - bring your own
Specifics with regards to the ceremony
Photography
Upgrades for the ceremony - Steel Drum Band, hor d'ouerves (sp?) etc.
Cake - upgrade available

I only have 8 people going (including myself & FI) so I am not in need of a reception after dinner - therefore I don't need to rent the disco. I have a 11am ceremony time so I am in the midst of considering finger foods for after the ceremony and possibly an afternoon cruise w/finger foods before dinner.

I had my flowers made for me (silk) therefore I do not need the flowers the resort offers (upgrades are expensive) and I'm having a simple ceremony with recorded music - no steel drum band.

For me the reason I initially chose the Royal Package was for the flowers, room upgrade and photography.

I am now reconsidering my package selection because I have my own flowers, don't need the room upgrade (already booked the jr. suite) and the photography is still up in the air.

I have info at home my computer. I can send you that as well as Spa info. Let me know if the info I provided helps wink.gif

Thanks for the tips. I already have things in mind that I am willing to spend extra on as far as upgrades go, I am just basically looking for any pricing so that I can figure out how much it will cost me.

    • 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.
