She has lied to me for the past 6 months saying that she booked and got her airfare. meanwhile, I bought her dress for her, bought many gifts to put in her welcome bag and lended her money. where that money is, WHO KNOWS! when I asked her why she lied to me she told me to "Fu*k off" and hung up on me. SUPER Classy.

 

At this point it is too late to ask anyone else to stand in so I am left with just one girl, a dress that I cant return and gifts that I guess i will have to keep. I am hoping that is the only drama I will have LOL.

This was my game plan. I paid 9 nights myself because two families backed out about a week and a half before go time. It was much cheaper to do this obviously then pay 400 per table per hour for the tons of events I had

Just a thought, maybe somewhat extreme...however, maybe booking a room for the 6 nights would cost less than what you would pay for a reception?  I don't know how the math would work out.  But, there are extra benefits that go along with the 60 nights (including free nights for bride and groom).  It may be worth looking into booking the cheapest possible room for 6 nights and 'eat' that cost, in order to get the other freebies that go along with it??

I believe the Lanterns are plugged in.  I never asked, but I do know we had an entire strand go out so I would assume they are just essentially Christmas lights with.  I should have ask for a refund or partial credit.  It did annoy me a bit. We also got square table candles and steps with candles on them (there are pics on my review on the MP page) but they were battery operated which was nice b/c with the wind that evening they would have gone out instantly

Unfortunately this is notcheaper.

We pay $148 per person per night.or $260 per single room per night.   Because we have 54 nights already we do get one free private cocktail hour.  I opted out of the cocktail hour and upgraded to the reception for about $300.  I will pay $60/table for each additional hour after the two hours that are provided.  So that will cost me about $600 total. Plus the $385 for the ipod set up. (Which I'd have to pay reguardless.)

I will have my guests meet at a public bar for cocktail hour. (My WC wasn't happy about this BUT  I didn't see paying extra for this when most of my guests will be in pictures anyway. )

I hope that this is correct and she's not going to throw some surprise costs at me when we're down there.

Rae, don't worry about your guests heading to one of the bars. We had both cocktail hour and dinner reception, and in between our guests still went to the Nizuc lobby bar for drinks.

 

But I really think you should consider paying for the 6 nights, look at the calculations:

 

Cost: $260 * 6 = 1560

 

Savings: $600 for reception + 4 nights refunded ($148 * 2 *4) = 1784

 

Plus, maybe you can convince her to throw in the cocktail hour. So it might cost you more upfront, but in the end you will save some money.

Yeah, but with the 54 nights booked, she is going to get 2 comped nights anyway.

 

60 nights booked gets you 4 comped nights.  So, she is only getting 2 extra free nights, not 4.

Hi Girls!

 

I'm getting married on September 5, 2011 at The Moon Palace.  Only 38 more days to go and I'm so excited!  I made my own Save the Date cards, and I got the idea from this website.  I can't remember from which bride, but they turned out great!!!  I was going to make my own invites, but ran out of time.  IMG00303-20110331-1550 (A0504187).JPGIMG00302-20110331-1550 (A0504191).JPGIMG00296-20110331-1542 (A0504185).JPGIMG00297-20110331-1542 (A0504186).JPGIMG00301-20110331-1543 (A0504189).JPG

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
