So, I am having a bit of a breakdown at this point and I am sincerely frustrated and do not know what to do.
I have been in contact with the Majestic since December of last year. I got my date, and for a bit there was a confusion as to reception costs etc...
Recently, the Majestic implented a flat rate of 500 per hour for rental of wet bar, sound system, open bar....
Since the beginning of this journey, I have told them I was bringing (or planning at least) 100 people. I was never told once that there was a cap on the 500 dollar flat rate. I checked my emails to make sure, and I was definitly never told.
I am now being told the price is 1000 for open bar and rental. Which means 2,500 for a two hour reception, along with the cost of my DJ which is 900 (DJ Mannia).
This is ridiculous to me as the only reason I was paying the 500 was for the convenience of my guests not having to walk to the bar, and being able to just enjoy the reception. Its bad enough I am paying for a full 4 hours from DJ Mannia and only getting 2 1/2 out of him...and now this? An increased rate of 1000 PER HOUR at a resort where my guests are ALREADY PAYING FOR ALL INCLUSIVE!!!!
Has anyone done anything else?
I am considering buying a bunch of alcohol and just hiring a bartender. Has anyone done this? How would I go about this?
