Martha Stewart

They are so confusing. I mean, if you're paying for a reception, why should you pay for tables and all that? Just saying. A touch frustrating, no? :)

I'm still hoping on the a la carte and using the ceremony flowers and some extras for the tables. If we do get one of the packages I would hope to do the same, and use the one "decorated" table as the sweet heart table and just rearranging a bit. I just can't see paying $600 per table.

I thought the tables were free for beautiful beginnings. That is what my WC said the other day when we spoke. Its people you have to pay for if you dont have ten rooms booked for BBeginnings.

I didnt even know there was a first day. My WC said no ala carte whatsoever!
I think its all ridiculous!



I think since I booked last January I should be entitled to what I was told. BUt whatever!

They couldnt tell me when I booked my stuff (because the transtion), so I am doing all alacarte... our tables are free. That was my biggest concern.. 3k for flowers for the wedding was fine but another 500 per table adds up. (with Preston Bailey a 10 person table 500- with MS its an 8 person table, but thats all that I know) . I am sure it is going to be amazing!!

I just confirmed all my a la carte options and paid for them. Sandals Regency in St. Lucia was able to accommodate all of my a la carte requests, none of which are anything like Martha Stewart. I did have to get pictures in and have everything 100% paid for prior to today (although I think that's an arbitrary deadline and they seemed willing to work with me if it extended past that).

 

You do have to push pretty hard, or at least I did at first, and I had to provide them pictures of what I wanted rather than them help you out by suggesting things. I had also sent an information request back in May re: flowers that wasn't responded to, so that may have had something to do with it (I.e. I argued that had they responded in a timely manner I would have already been confirmed on everything so they really couldn't be forcing me into something because of their mistake).

 

Re: the beautiful beginnings, one table is covered in the cost. All other tables are $100 a piece. Each table seats 8 people.

That is ridiculous seeing that my wedding coordinator told me nothing came on those tables. So Im going to pay $100 for chairs and a table.. when before MS the tables were free with the free and basic wedding package.

 

Im annoyed with sandals and beaches and all their hidden costs and fees! Its annoying! Im bringing my own flowers.

Hi everyone! I am glad I read this after getting back today from vacation. I will definitly be calling my wedding coordinator & travel agent to get more details on this. future mrs2010 let me know if you learn anything new seeing that we are both probably going to be going through the same frustrations.

    • 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.
