Hey  acw271011 I was able to book the italian restaurant no problem for nov 25th and i booked it through a email not sure why there is a difference in what people are being told.

ehpage - how are you managing being the TA???  I debated about that and my other half now is saying don't even mention prices to anyone or they'll be dropping like flies. he says lets wait a bit and see how the prices go.

 

tris - did peeps bail cuz of pricing??  that's what I'm worried about too. we have so many experienced travellers - my inlaws to be are million milers with Holland America cruise lines, my sister in law to be is a flight attendant, my sister is a terminal supervisor at Toronto airport, we've travelled a ton of places and always booked "last minute". we went to Cabo Mexico 2 years ago and booked tuesday and flew out saturday. got an all inclusive, one week taxes in $811. the resort cost was $534.  so you can see why when we're quoted $1500 for a one week vacation we know darn well the prices are going to come down.

I was going to wait to sit down with Chandlyn and decide when I got there but then I started thinking that I would be super disapointed if I got there and they didn't have the flowers I wanted.. That's why I am going with real touch.. I will use the flowers they provide for centerpieces and or gazebo deocration.

can you post the email she sent you confirming the 2012 rates for your 2011 wedding? This is unreal....

 

Chandlyn told me she cannot adjust the rates as they come from her head office, if that is the case how can she offer 1 bride 2011 rates and 1 bride 2012 rates... Something is fishy here.

 

None of us like to be ripped off, and it's not that i'm saying they're trying to take our money from us however, if they're offering it to 1 then they should have to offer it to all of us..

 

ugh so frustrating!!!

Here is the email she sent me.. Now, according to the 2011 pricing the judges fees were $400 and starting 2012 the fees drop to $200... so here is what she wrote which states I am getting the new price

 

I asked Beverly if we could do the free package but she said we would still have to pay judges fees which were $400. I asked her if we could get around the fees since we were already legally married but she never got back to me (I think this is when she resigned.)You may do the free package which now attracts a fee of US200

Here is my bouquet.. I ordered it off Etsy... I didn't want real flowers since I wanted to keep my bouquet after the ceremony and put it on my coffee table back home.. My 4 bridesmaids will have the same bouquet just smaller.

Ohhh.. ok there is some confusion here... that $200 is the judges fees.. and yes they have gone down to $200 plus tax.

 

This doesn't mean you're being offered the 2012 package prices.. I am certain if you asked for the price of one of the packages you have to pay for you would probably get the same rates we have.

Oooops... sorry ladies, I was confused. I thought the judges fees for the free package were $400 until 2012, then they were going down to $200..

I actually had an email from Chandlyn a few weeks ago advising me the Judge fees had changed to $200 plus tax.. This is just a standard thing, nothing to do with the new 2012 fees.

 

I must email them and appologize right now, I sent them a pretty heated email today.

    • 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?
