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!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
