The free wedding still exists as I talked to Beverly about a month ago for my May wedding...it works out to be WAY cheaper that way too. We have 42 people right now and its still cheaper to pay the $25 per person for the dinner, minister fees, gazebo rental etc was like $1700.

 

The free wedding was included in the packages she sent me the day we booked with our TA

From what I understood from my TA , is that she books the trip but doesn't deal with the wedding stuff. She only gave me an email address. When I contacted Beverly she said: book your wedding and then book your rooms and then send me the form. I don't think it matters with who (nolitours, sunwigs, transat, on Internet etc.) you book with because ultimately it's the resort that charges and takes care of the wedding.

Ya my TA said she doesn't want to get into the wedding stuff, which is understadable and she gave me the email info and that's it.  I will wait to see what Beverly or her assistant say about the free wedding package as we don't need much. 

 

Katelynn - Did she say how much the gazebo rental and the minister fees are with the free wedding package?

thank you sooo much for posting this. I never ever would have realized it still existed if it wasn't for you and a few others posting and would have paid hundreds of dollars more through air transat for  the wedding. My TA is fantastic and is doing all of the planning. :) thanks again !

When I asked Beverly she told me that it was no more, and I couldn't get it either and I booked in April.  I'm getting married Feb 22.  So thats crazy if you can and I was wrongly informed.

You should check with her again when you get there...  Maybe they stopped offering it for a while, then started again?  Not sure, but when my TA gave me the forms to fill out and book the date, she had a print off of the free wedding package that I was able to select too...and that was only 2 months ago?  IDK, maybe it's just if you book through a TA they can get the deal for you???  Good luck, I hope you can figure it out...

I just got an email back and Beverly's assitant said i am eligable for the free package and she sent be the info.  I was going to do the cheapest one anyways which was $700 + $35 per person after 16 and the free package i say the $700 right off the bat and also it's only $25 per person after the 16.  All i have to pay for is the extra people and the flowers.  Also are you ladies using the hotel photographer that is supplied or are you getting a different one?  I heard people say they have bargin'd with the photographer and got the entire disk of pictures for $300 so i'm hoping to do the same.

    • 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.
