Question ladies...

 

Me and the fiance want to put down a deposit for our April 2014 wedding at BBPD. But I am a stickler for refund policies and generally bad at planning and uncomfortable paying for things this far in advance! Although I know it must be done if I want to reserve my date. If we make the deposit, and for some crazy, unlikely reason we decide to change our date or not get married at BBPD, will they give us a refund?

 

I read somewhere that the deposit is non-refundable, but I also remember that Oct 2012 Bride had paid her deposit, then decided not to go through with things and the resort did issue her a refund (which was nice of them). But I got the impression that was the exception, not the rule. 

 

Any insight would be extremely helpful!

Basically unless there is a serious event you will not be able to get your refund as it has been explained to me. If you decide to change your date, they will just move the deposit to that day, but if it is something as simple as you change your venue, they will not refund the deposit. I think the case you are talking about the bride ended up calling off the wedding and she was hassled for a while before they would refund her deposit. 

I have seen a case where they decided to get married in the states and so they were able (with a lot of hassle again) to use their deposit for the honeymoon trip to BBPD. 

But basically, no there is no refund as I understand it.

Hi Tricia,

 

My husband and I just returned from this resort and we had a private sit-down reception. Well worth the money! The food was amazing and it was very intimate. Our menu choices included: caprese salad, pesto marinated broiled chicken and black forest cake. Our guests raved about the food! If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
