Stressed Out During Contract Negotiations!!

Recommended Posts

I have a vent...I am totally stressed out right now...we are in the process of negotiating our contract with the resort and it's been a LOT of back and forth. I am even more stressed out by the fact that in my mind, I want my wedding at this resort. On the other hand, I will not settle for just anything and put me or my guests in a bad spot. Just the thought of not having the wedding at the resort I want has me feeling a bit down right now.

 

URGH!!! Thanks for listening....I just want this part done and over with!!

Well...it's all in one contract really, but it's the room block and incentives or lack thereof that are giving me grief. I thought that I would have my contract signed and sealed by mid-week this week...instead....we are STILL haggling!!! URGH!! Very stressful...at times I have felt like...you know what....let me just plan my wedding at home and call it a day. Very frustrating...

I sure hope it doesn't come to that....I love this place and a knock down drag out would really put me off....I'm hoping that we can resolve everything this week. Thanks for listening!!

Thank god you just made me feel normal!

We are having a decently large wedding at the Barcelo 75-125 people next April and there has been a ton of back and forth.

I honestly never thought it would be this tough...I almost pulled to the plug and changed locations many times over the last week and half, but there are already 30 rooms booked so it would be a major drama so I am just trying to work through it with them.

I just feel like they are acting like a "Wedding factory" and not like a resort thats occupancy is so low that 2 of the 5 resorts are closed right now

Thank you again for making me realize that I am not alone

No...you are not alone...I don't know what I thought, but I can't stand the back and forth. It looks like there is some movement on my end...but make no mistake...these folks get what they want. In my case, they know that they do not have many competitors and although tourism is down...they certainly do not act like it!! For a minute there...Brooklyn was looking REAL good to me!! LOL

Fingers crossed.....
