Question! Need help!

Recommended Posts

Okay, I couldn't figure out which forum to post this in, so I just picked this one. I apologize if it is in the wrong one!! I'm trying to pick a venue, and I finally found one (I think!). I asked for a proposal (so that I'll know how much everything is going to cost), but they said they can't send me one until I put down a deposit. Is this normal? I know absolutely nothing about planning weddings. Also, they have a package deal, and I asked which vendors they used, and they said they can't tell me because it's confidential. Is this normal too? I really want to make sure that, for example, they're using a good photographer. Neither of these thing seem normal to me, but I wanted to see what you guys think. Thanks!!

they wont give you a quote till you put a deposit down? that doesnt seem right to me. My resort gave me a list of prices for different options so i would at least have an idea of what i wanted, then i put $100 deposit down.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking... It seems ridiculous to put down a $500 down payment on something that has not been put down in writing and signed... But I wasn't sure if that's just the way things "worked" with weddings.. They did send me info on how much certain things costs, but even with that, I still have no idea how much the total will be, especially considering there is all this small writing on the bottom about service and gratuity fees. I just wanted to make sure I was not out of line by asking that they draft up a written proposal first!

I agree with everyone else!!

 

I would not put any money down without a contract signed and an explaination of exactly what you are paying for..

 

Trust your instincts on this one and get more information!

That does seem funny. I would call and insist that there's no way I can put a deposit down and commit to something that I have no idea of. It's not like a hotel where your bidding on a room to stay, there are many different packages and you need to know which one is best for your occasion.

    • 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?
