Budget questions

Recommended Posts

When I started planning my TA looked up prices for this year around my wedding date, and said more then likely the prices will be close to that next year...  Keeping my fingers crossed that is actually the case!!!   It is making me a little nervous when I hear all the day to day changing in prices you are all discussing...    wacko.gif

Hello!

 

The difference between the prices should not be more than 15usd, most of the properties in Mexico work with American Dollars, for example, in our property, the lowest rate this year was $209, next year, and the same suite will be $219us.

And most important, if you confirm your wedding at any property this year, you will sign a contract give a deposit, and the rates stated on it will be valid for next year!

 

Let me know if this information was helpfully for you.

 

Regards,

 

Tatiana Valdez

echraide,

 

The reason i decided to cut Palace resorts from my list was because someone told me they try to sell timeshares to people staying there. I didn't want my guests to be subjected to a salespitch! Can anyone else confirm whether they do that or not?

Can someone share their experiences on booking prices to Cuba? I've been telling my friends that I'm hoping to keep it under 1200 and I thought I was being generous there but now looking at the prices everyone is posting maybe I was wrong? Is it much different in price between Cuba and Mexico?

I've been looking at prices through tripcentral for the resorts I'm considering and the prices were never more than 1100 tax in out of Toronto for the latest month they were showing prices for (dec last I checked). We're planning on a Jan 2012 wedding..

They do sell time shares, and make a commission if you attend the sales pitch, but they don't push it on anyone. They ask when you are checking in, that's about all. We're getting married at Moon Palace in a couple months and aren't at all worried about it, but then again we are already members!

I find with Cuba that it depends on what part of Cuba you go to...Varadero and Cayo Coco are usually a little more expensive.  In my experience there is more variety in Mexico, so you have more options and therefore more lower priced options.  Plus it is good to remember that a 4 star in Cuba is not a 4 star in Mexico (probably closer to a 3-3.5 star).  This is not a problem, our resort in Cuba was awesome even though it wasn't fancy, but if you have a certain expectation for your wedding, keep the whole Cuba star ratings thing in mind. I think we paid around $900 + tax (so probably $1200ish) for a "4 star" in Varadero.  That's just my personal experience with Cuba booking though!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
