My wedding is still 6 weeks out but I am trying to think of possible Plan B's. Question for those who have adjusted their plans, switched locations, or canceled, we booked with applevacations and funjet, are there ways to do this without losing money?

 

I know these sites are offering things to those traveling up to May 6, did these offerings allow you to change everything? or just flights?

 

I am sending good wedding vibes to ALL!

Not cancelling, wedding is June 29th, leaving June 20th for Tulum and getting excited!!!! All our guests are supportive and no one has decided to cancel so we're lucky... To all those who decide to cancel or switch, good luck, I wish you all the best :-)

I have been thinking of plan B alsohuh.gif TA states unless there is a ban placed for travel to mexico apple will charge change fee. Also, we have guests from other areas going on scheduled air and will lose money. Sol will not refund money unless again ban forces canceling. So, I will have to wait until last minute but would like to have plan set up at diff resort. My TA suggests if that happens maybe look at iberostar in jamaica or punta cana, feels it will be easier if we stay with same chain. But all our planning goes to hell!! this sucks

plan B seems like it's just not in the cards for us. it's looking like we are going to have to proceed as planned no matter who cancels on us.

 

we are mostly on USairways and they will now waive the change fee up thru may 31. however, the resort is only offering postponement or switch to one of their dominican resorts for travel up to may 16. since that is still a week prior to when we leave for our trip, we are kinda stuck in limbo. in the meantime i have contacted the WCs at all 3 dreams resorts in dominican republic, and 1 doesn't have a wedding date available that week, 1 can accommodate us but not for a legal ceremony (which is the whole point), and the other hasn't said either way. our TA says it will be near impossible to get us all flights and rooms for that week anyway. and, it looks like the flights to punta cana cost hundreds more than our flights to cancun?

 

oh, and our photographer won't refund our deposit unless there are border closures/canceled flights forcing us to cancel. while that's perfectly reasonable (they are running a business after all), it still sucks. not to mention we'd be back to square one looking for a photographer, and they'd have to be amazingly cheap since we'd have $500 less to work with.

 

so far, we plan on going forward with plan A, mostly because we don't have a choice that doesn't lose people a lot of cash. best of luck to all of you who need to find and implement a plan B!

My wedding is not until August, but I am going down in a few weeks with some of my family to plan. Looks like this flu is not as bad as they thought. It just sucks that it scares all of your guests. Good luck with everything! It will all work out.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
