Service Fee....???

Recommended Posts

Ok... here is some background.

 

So, my girlfriend from university is engaged ---YIPPPEEEE! and is planning a destination wedding (she is out west) AND WE ARE GOING!!! *insert crazy dance moves here*bunny_4.gif.

 

We were talking about wedding planners, TA's, locations etc. when she informed me that one of the TA's she had talked to were charging her and her FI a service fee.... which, she is totally cool with b/c of the extras she is getting...

 

- invitaitons

- a website - built by the company

- gift baskets upon arrival for the guests (LIKE ME!!! YAY)

 

and a myraid of other goodies... I am curious to find out if anyone else paid a service fee... if so, how much? and what did you get ? ? ?

 

(Or would you just forego the goodies and DIY that stuff yourself ? ? ?)

I have never heard of a service fee....I probably wouldn't pay the service fee, only because I am picky about my invites and the hotel will have a welcome basket there when we get there for free. Plus my wedding website was free...If she doesn't want to deal with the invites/website herself then maybe it will be a good deal for her wink.gif

Yeah, that would be so fun! Jamaica is on my list of places to go. The Iberostar Grand Rose Hall in Jamaica is our 2nd choice in case of anymore Mexico problems. FUN FUN!

Precisely! It isn't refunded but used toward the purchase of additonal services...

I am still curious to know if anyone went this route, and what they received in return.

what would you pay extra for?

I wouldn't pay it. I don't like letting other people handle things for me though. I like to do things myself. So, that is why. If she doesn't want to deal with the things she is getting from the fee then she should do it for sure!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
