Freaking Out - Last Minute Change??

Recommended Posts

Melissa, if you read this, give me your advice!!!

 

As some of you know, it took me FOREVER to pick a location. And I picked the Barcelo Maya Colonial, I can't really remember why now! Though I know Melissa loved it, which gives me hope.

 

But now, we are about to sign the contract, and I'm freaking out because they're saying ABSOLUTELY no external photographer, and Tammy says they are stricter than all the other resorts even.

They're also saying, no vendors of any kind, and no welcome dinner or brunch after on site... I just want a reserved table for my guests that are staying at the resort, it seems like a reasonable request, and since everyone is paying for AI, I don't want to have to organize dinner and brunch off site, you know?

 

So, I've already sent out my location, STDs etc, but nobody has booked yet because the room blocks aren't in place. Should I think about moving the locationhuh.gifhuh.gif

 

Help, I'm freaking out.

I remember that Melissa had to go off site to do pictures with her photographer because they didn't allow outside vendors.

 

I haven't seen Melissa on a lot lately, you might want to email her to get a quicker response, I don't know how often she's on.

Hmmmmm.. to be honest I would think about it. You have plenty of time to find another place and I wouldn't worry about the STD,etc. It just seems like there not being accomidating at all..

 

but wait didn't Melissa have an outside photographer? Maybe she just bought a day pass.

Magsie,

 

since no one has booked yet, it is easy to change the location if that is what you want...also, i will help...if/when people call, i will of course diret them to the right hotel.

 

also, i remember that one of your main reasons for picking that resort was because their prices were on the low end but for 2008 they really jacked up their prices...

 

let me know if i can help anyway...2008 prices are just coming out so it will be easier for me to get prices for other resorts to help you.

Tammy, you're the best, I know you've been putting in work to get the room blocks sorted with them too, so, it's great that you are supportive of a potential change, thank you so much!

 

I'm not sure what to do. I can't tell if this is just a Barcelo thing, i know lots of places have issues with the outside vendors... and I don't know if most places allow a night before welcome dinner... so I'm not sure if I'm freaking out unnecessarily because actually, all the places will have these problems, and i don't wnat to go through the whole searching again for no reason... sad.gif

 

Not sure what to do.

Margaret,

honestly your guests will not be upset if you change your plans. I did and it was not that big of a deal. You have to do what is best for you and your overall picture of the wedding.

Yes, thanks Yazmin, we will call them (we keep trying, but they're never there!), and discuss... Hopefully, we can make it clear and come to some agreement. I haven't signed the contract yet, but Tammy's been working hard on it, and I really don't want to have to go through choosing a location again!

 

Having worked there, would you recommend it? Do you think I will get most things I want through them, so only need to worry about the photographer and the welcome dinner?

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
