    I signed up for the Caribbean package which was like the pearl package but now I have to pay 400 more for it. Is anyone else going through this right now?

      When did you sign up and when is your wedding? I booked mine last year and they are still honoring my Caribbean package.

        Fiesta launched a new website not to long ago. It listed the new packages. I noticed the price increase, but I noticed they added some items to the pearl package, couples massage, chocolate covered strawberries, flowers for the parents. I signed up for the Caribbean package, as well, last May. There has been no mention from the WC of a price increase for me, yet.

          Ok girls, I talked to the WC yesterday and she said she would keep everything the same for me with the caribbean package but, I was doing a little more research and I think that the Pearl package would be cheaper than the Caribbean package anyway. I know it starts with an additional 400 dollars but the pp price is 20 with the pearl as opposed to 50 with Caribbean package. So we are having about 25-30 people so that additional money really adds up

            Khloe - That's also what I'm considering, with the approximately $400 we save we can have the cocktail reception or something instead. The set dinner menus for the "elegant beach dinner" didn't seem very appealing at all for our group anyways.

              Glad to hear they are honoring the price for you!
              i had a hard time deciding on our package. once you count out all your guests and the cost per person, can make you change your minds quick on packages!

                Did you already sign up for the Caribbean package and want to change to the pearl package? Nina has not answered me back yet if I can change to save money....What is the "elegant beach dinner" I dont know if I know anything about that. We are just doing the menu from the Jamaican restaurant, but reserved in the blue lagoon.

                  We had originally planned to do the Golden Love renewal package since we can get our marriage certificate here for $50 and save $800 compared to the Caribbean package which was the comparable wedding package. The elegant beach dinner had two menus to choose from and it was served in the Poseidon restaurant, that's what you should have been getting with the Caribbean package (according to the wedding booklet). I'm still waiting to hear back what the extra price per person was for the other 2009 packages (please share with me if you know) but it's seeming like the new 2010 packages might be a better deal at $20pp. So confused as to what's the best choice now, hopefully we'll get it all ironed out this week.

                  Klhoe - when is your wedding there by the way??

                    We where thinking about doing the golden love package, it just seemed like more to do, but a great way to save lots of money.
                    I do remember the dinner packages, its a bit confusing, but as I understand they do not have them anymore, If you are having a private dinner you are only allowed to pick you appetizer, soup or salad and two dinner entrees from any of the restaurant and they where charging 40 pp over 8 for that. But we booked before that rule was in affect so we are only charged 300 to book the blue lagoon for the night, which I am very happy about. Or you can have a non private dinner for your reception and not pay the 40 pp over 8.

                    Phycia is allowing us to change to the Pearl package and save us money. The price before was 50 pp over the 8 for the Caribbean package but I am unsure what the price was before for the Golden package, you might want to call or email Phlycia for better detail, let me know how it works out for you

                    We are getting married on May 13, 2010, but we will be arriving May 10 and will be staying until May 25.

                    Its been good talking to you hope we figure this all out soon

                      I just talk to the WC and she said it is cheaper to book the pearl package with the amount of people we are having so anyone that booked the Caribbean package might want to take a look at the new thing the pearl package has to offer, and see if changing to the pearl might be a good idea for you too.
