Tammy..

I did not make it to the session... I signed up originally and got the cancelled e-mail. I never got any notification that it was rescheduled or anything, so I had no idea! Can you keep me and the rest of us posted on where we can access this info once you post it?

That would be great!

Thanks

I participated in the webinar however one of the answers I got wasn't very clear. This is my scenario: I am using the Ultimate Package and would like to have a private reception at the restaurant El Patio. Gabby said I would be able to do that but there would be extra fees involved. What are those extra fees and are they per person (including everyone) or per person (the additional number of people not included in the 20 people by package already includes for a reception)

 

I guess i'm confused. I'm planning on having 40 people with my group. Based on that I'm just trying  to figure out a  round about figure as to what the reception is going to cost me minus the dj, decorations and other extras. I

 

I've gotten several emails back from my coordianator and all she has been able to tell me is that to close a restaurant it is $30 per person and a minimum of 40 people is required.

I had exactly the same problem.  My contract from Ana stated that I would have the reception in a closed restaurant for NO extra charge.  I emailed Gabby about it when Ana left and she gave me the choice of El Patio or Himitsu, again with no extra charge.  She said that since I had over 40 people that it would be fine for it to be private and that we would just have to pay per person for everyone over the 20 included in the package.  That was fine......then I got an email from my new assigned coordinator, Magdalene or Maggie.  She said that she would have to check with management on the availability of El Patio and that it would be $30 additional per person for it to be private.  Well I emailed her back letting her know that I was given El Patio as a choice from Ana and Gabby and that I was never informed of an additional cost for it to be private.  She got back to me letting me know that it was a mistake and that the $30 per person is for a private party in one of the restaurants like a Welcome Dinner and that we would only have to pay per person for the extra people over the original 20 included in our package and that El Patio would be fine.

 

Lesson Learned:  If you get conflicting informaiton, tell them and see if they will honor what you were originally told or if they made a mistake.  Hope that helps you!

Hi Tammy,

I'm getting married February 28th, 2011 at Dreams Riviera Cancun. I am new to this forum and would love to see the webinar you held in September.  Will you be hosting another webinar anytime soon?! Thanks!

    • 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.
