    Hello everyone!

    My dream wedding is approaching so fast and I have soo little done! I got married in India a few months ago and now im planning this in a hurry! Anyone who has been married there please I would love your input, help, sugestions..I just got my date back from the wedding cooridinator there and the price list for the weddings, I have 40 ppl going and the pckgs are $2200 US and im in Canada plus they want you to pay $120 plus for each additional guest and this is to eat in one of the all inclusive resturants! I dont understnad this because what I am paying thousands extra for then...My sister had a destination wedding in mexico at a nice hotel, not a 5* by any means but she got to have it in a seperate ballroom and only had to pay $60 per person for the meals, they had a head table, dance floor, a bar equipped with bartenders, and the only extra charge other than the food was the DJ..I was praying i would be able to have something exactly like this, but they wont rent out a rest at the principe for anything less than 100b ppl so that means i will be sharing my wedding dinner with other guests..i dont see how this is fair, if anyone understands this plese let me know because i am really confused as to why they do this!
    Does anyone have any sujestions as what i can do... any info is welocomed, anyone have a wedding there...anyone able to share some photos... or stories..I was going to have it at the Iberostar rose hall beach but as it was a 4 and a half star and i got a better rate for the bahia which i s a 5* i was all over it! I have stayed at their properties in the Myan rivera and they are beautiful!
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!
    One other thing is i have only seen ppl and pictures of ppl having their wedding ceremony in their wedding gazebo, i am not going to the caribian not to get married ON THE BEACH!!!! thats a huge part of the dream itself!
    Congrats to all the engadged brides, and im looking forward to all the wonderful support in this community!

            Hi Danielle...congrats and welcome! Do you have a TA? I'd recommend talking to a TA to get some more clarity on all of this. You've got enough time still that you can get all this worked out and have a beautiful day! Happy planning!
