Ahhhhhhh

Recommended Posts

Hello another newbie here! My partner and I are planning to Wed in May 2010. After much research we decided on Maya Luna in Tulum. After Liaising with the hotel and wedding planner we come to realise that itâ€s a bit more expensive than we expected. I had hoped that my family and friends would stay at the hotel with us but as its cheaper to get a package with flights...my family will probably be staying elsewhere. If we donâ€t fill 80% of the hotels rooms we will have to pay $1600 restaurant hire fee rather than $900. Iâ€m starting to question whether Maya Luna is the right place for us, however my Partner disagrees. I have started to get a bit stressed about this and feel like my head is spinning. All I want is a nice stress free chilled Bohemian wedding on the beach with a BBQ and already I feel like the veins are popping out of my head!!!

Hello Tiffik,

I experienced the same frustration when looking at Maya Luna. This last year, the private party fee was only $500 without any guests at the hotel. That is quite the price hike. How many guests do you think you will have? There are a lot of options in Tulum.

Congrats and welcome !

it may look expensive but remember that in many places, you cannot have a private party at all, or you have to pay around 4000-5000$ to privatize the place to start with. So a 900$ penalty does not sound that bad to me... If you like the place, had a good feel with it... go for it girl !

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
