    I am posting this as a seperate thread.

    It seems there is alot of miscommunication in terms of open bar prices for the M.C.

    For me, I am expecting up to a 100 people. Open bar has been quoted to me as the following-

    Premium-35
    International-25
    National- 15

    This is PER HOUR, PER PERSON.

    This means for a ONE HOUR open bar for my guests would be $1500.

    Frankly, I find this ridiculous.

    Continuing however, a couple of brides on the Facebook M.C. group, have said their wedding coordinator has quoted them with a newly implemented base price of $500 for rental of reception space, sound system, and OPEN BAR per hour. This is MUCH more reasonable.

    How many of you have gotten back a per person quote and a $500 base pay quote? I feel this is ridiculous, and especially for brides bringing such a big group as well as MONEY!!!

      I've just e-mailed Sandra as well. I wish they would communicate such changes more clearly!

        Please let us know as soon as she responds. Yadilis sent me that info, and I emailed her back asking about the 500 option!

          Wardes who took over for Claudia just told me about that new flat fee option! So it is correct.

            I haven't received anything back yet from Sandra... they are probably flooded with e-mails. I hope that conveys the need to communicate more efficiently and consistently in the future!

              I got an email from Sandra today... this is what she said:

              Q. Also, I was reading on the Facebook group, a few brides said they were quoted a price of $500 for rental of the wetbar/parrot bar, and that included open bar along with the sound system. So i'm just a little confused with pricing now. If you could clarify for me i'd really appreciate it

              .[Sandra de la Cruz] Of course it will be a pleasure to clarify it, I see there has been a lot of confusion but please make sure to understand except for the outside photographers policy, that is also a business expense for them, not for our couples, there is nothing that is going to affect negatively to weddings, we just have added a new option of renting the parrots bar or wet bar (as well as it was offered since we opened at the sports bar or disco) for US$500.00 per hour including set up, national drinks and sound system. You can go with this option or keep the other one of US$300.00 to rent it and add what you prefer about drinks, music, etc.

                Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

                    I got that info too...I was getting worried because I was also told I had the Presdnt suite and then told I didn't send them a reply...which I did and kept but it was too late...
                    Hopefully this will stay an option cause I have 60+ and the pricing was getting a little much!
                    Thanks for advising on the follow-up

                      I got a similar e-mail from Sandra:

                      [Sandra de la Cruz] US$500.00 per hour including sound system + set up + national drinks was available before for sports bar and disco, we have added this option for the wet bar and parrots bar
