Islandgirl910, I suggest you speak with an agent about the cost of the rooms first.  That seems really high and I am almost sure they would be able to get you a better rate.  It pays to shop around.  I am staying oceanfront for just under $200 a night.  I was going to give folks the option of staying elsewhere but I decided against it.  By the time they pay the fee to come onto the resort, they could have easily stayed there.

Some of them are complaining about the price of the rooms at the hotel. I admit I realize the hotel rooms are very pricey. I just saw they're about $323 per night. Combine that with a flight and it comes out to about $1,000 for 5 days.

 

My question is, in the wedding contract, the hotel states that 90% of the guest have to stay at the resort, in order for us to obtain a private reception. Is this really true?

 

I'd like our guests to have the flexibility of staying at another hotel, paying the $100 day pass for the wedding and just not feel so restricted if anything. We do want a private reception, don't get me wrong, but I just want to know if this rule is set in stone?

 

I appreciate your feedback! Thanks!

Hi Eholt:

 

The thing is we realize not everyone's going to book through our agent. We gave them the option to book their room (even flight) through her or they can book their package online. I made a mistake, online right now quotes for the room are actually $373 per night for next Sept (I checked them on Expedia). So if two guests stay in a room for 3 nights, they'll pay about$560 pp. Then they just have to find airfare. Its hard trying to get people to do book altogether, but we said we can't stress ourselves out. It's up to them to choose. Hopefully there'll be a sale in the next few months on rooms. Makes me wonder why the heck Sept is so high??

 

Definitely only going to allow our guest to either stay at our hotel or at the Beach resort, nothing else can be an exception.

 

Thanks for your input hun :)

I only have 50 invitations out (expecting 25-30) but I made it clear that my agent would match any deal they found.  The agent also has a payment plan, which you will not get on Expedia, etc so that is also a big plus.  I took time to search and be sure the agent we chose could offer us the best deal.  I decided against giving people the option to stay @ the Beach.  By the time they pay for the 1-day pass, they likely could have just stayed @ the Suites.  Plus I think they would regret not being with the others @ the Suites.

Same thing we did. We sent out 40 stds and in reality I believe only 20-30 will attend, which is fine. Save us some $ from paying for the extras lol. Our agent too has a payment plan, which I told everyone. One guest so far wants to take advantage of her services, so let's hope it works out for majority of them. You know people are hardheaded though. 

 

When did you send out your invitations? I just want to get an idea of when we should be mailing ours out.

Islandgirl910, we sent out STD's late May/early June.  I wanted to give everyone a solid year to plan.  I included the TA's info and many people did contact her for info.  I plan to send out the formal invites within the next 2-3 weeks (before the middle of Jan) and ask for an RSVP of April 1, giving us a full 6 weeks to know who is coming.  I am sure there may be some laggers but we already have a pretty good idea just based on talking to folks.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
