Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides Post Here!

I ended up calling (which for simple questions I want answers to I find a way better option then email!) and it is 16 per person per hour to extend the reception.

 

Has anyone with the gold package booked their spa appointments for their free love bird package? How do we go about doing that?

I'm starting to think they make up things as they go along. I have had 4 different answers for basic questions and then I come on here and you guys have been told something else! I'm getting extremely frustrated with the nickle and dimingas well. I flew down to Mexico last May and met with Yamina.. who was wonderful by the way.. I asked a million questions and started planning my wedding around what I was told. Well since then EVERYTHING has changed... apparently with the gold package, you don't get boutonniere's and bouquets.. you get one or the other??? Tghe vender fee went from $150- $500!? The Dj went from $1050 - $1400?! My flowers went from being $100 each to $430!? I mean come on.. this is getting ridiculous..

 

For instance, I was told its $12pp for an extra hour at the reception... now I hear $16 and $23? It would be nice that they have consistance answers for everyone. Its hard to plan things and have a visual of what you want if you are denied or told something else in every email response. I only have 5 weeks until our wedding and I feel like nothing is planned! I guess I am becoming stressed out over it now..

If you have any emails of the answers at the lower prices make sure to print them out and bring them with you. Typically they will honor what was previously said to you if you have the email confirming it.

Who told you that about the bouquets and boutineers? It says on the excellence website you get both and in the form you fill out it list both seperate as a choice? It does feel like you get Nicole's and dimed. My wedding is in three weeks and there are so many details not planned!!!

Hello ladies!

 

I wanted to update you that my wedding is NEXT weekend and I am leaving in 6 DAYS to go to EPM!! Also, with that said it has now been THREE WEEKS since I have heard ANYTHING from my WC. I am insanely frustrated and I just really really hope everything is just going to magically work out. I was told before to have all of my wedding details ready a month before the wedding and I sent mine out 3 weeks ago with tons of finalized questions and I have heard nothing back... Not even a peep :(

 

I guess I am going to call, I just dont like that there is no email response... Gustavo would barely let a whole day pass without getting back to me... Oh the good ol' days!

 

Well anyways, I am off to run more of the crazy amount of last minute errands we have to do before go time!!

 

Good luck brides! I hope you are all having better luck with our WC than I am!

 

Whew :-)

Here's the latest info I received from N (her response in red).

 

 

1)      How long is the reception? If we go over the allotted time, what is the cost?

The reception lasts 3 hours, if you want an additional hour is $16 usd per person or $22 usd per 2 hours

 

2)      How many bouteniers and bouquets are included with the Gold package?

You have included your bouquet, the boutonniere for the groom and 4 additional boutonnieres or corsages.

 

3)      We have Welcome bags for our guests. How much would it be to have someone put the bags in the rooms before the guests arrive?

The room deliveries are in $4 usd per room but we deliver them when your guests are already in the room because sometimes we have room changes and we lost the bags.

that's so soon!!! How exciting!! But I totally understand how nerve racking that is not hearing anything back! N has been good with getting back to me (avg 3 days). Hopefully when you call you'll get all the answers you need! N told me that she usually doesn't get to her emails until late at night (she usually emails me back 11 pm EST). Giving her a call though sounds like a good idea!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
