Gah! BRB problem again

Recommended Posts

It is not a 1 800 number! That is a good idea to use skype! I just got my phone bill from when I called there last month and it was $13 for only 3 minutes! Ouch

What? So they can't just push 3 or 4 tables together? What kind of stupid rule is that? Are you sure this isn't some marketing ploy to get you to spend more? Unless the tables are cemented in stone then they should be able to accomodate you!!! Thay even do that at Denny's!

Grrr these stupid rules....

Yeah I know! And we honestly don't even care if we aren't all at the same table - we could still get up and say hi to people while we're waiting on dinner. I just want them to make our reservations for the same time!!! I'm waiting till I hear back from our TA and then if that doesn't go anywhere i'm just going to suck it up and call down there. I'm not very good at putting my foot down and getting my way though...

I am updating the BRB info thread with some of this info so future brides can find it more easily.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was going to strangle our TA - she just referred me to a honeymoon registry so hopefully we'd get enough money from guests to pay for the private reception. Is this still a sit down dinner or is it at the buffet? Thanks.

Perfect. I would have liked a sit down dinner but not for $2,000+ and I don't even care at this point! haha. Thanks again for looking into that...I REALLY appreciate it. smile03.gif

This is a pretty typical policy. my hotel had a similar rule. Reservations at the specialty restuarants were only for up to 20 people. If you had more than 20, you could eat together at one of the buffet restaurants or do a private reception.

Yeah - which is ok but the wedding coordinator wouldn't take the two extra seconds to tell me that we could have tables set up for us at the buffet! Haha....but I WAS under the impression initially that we could eat at one of the restaurants. Oh well.

Hey, sorry I have been off the forum for a few days.

 

1. Yes, in order to all dine together because of their pacing you eat at the main terrace. She is notorious for giving you the details of what you actually asked but nothing else. Calling her directly has been my savior... should have done it a long time ago.

 

2. Buy skype credit to call land lines and use it that way... works great and is like .02 a minute!

 

I hope all is working out for you. I think my details are finally getting hashed out.

 

Lastly... deep breath... it will all work out... we stick our ground and will ge what we need... no worries mon. :)

Yes, what Maureen has said is absolutely correct. When you get there, scope out an area that you'd like to reserve for your wedding dinner in the Main Terrace buffet area. We chose some tables almost on an island or peninsula, closest to the beach and beach chapel (which is where we were married also).

 

Also note to make good friends with Sandra, who's the general manager and will generally be taking reservations for the specialty restaurants. She will help with anything needed.

 

More good info is that Munasan can take reservations for 8 people at a time. You sit 16 people to a grill, with 8 on each side of the grill and there are 4 grills total in the restaurant.

Thanks so much! What do you think the chances are that we could all make reservations at Munasan for the same time? Although....the buffet is nice because we aren't on a time schedule and can take as long as we want. I guess that's probably best anyway....

On a side note - i'm going to search through your other posts now for more resort info. Haha. I remember reading it before but have forgotten everything. Thanks again, knowing we can do that when we get there makes me feel better!

    • 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.
