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.

         

        Rebecca

        I got the initial e-mail from Susana on how to book. It says:

         

         

        In order to book your wedding, you need to complete the next step:

        1. Attach contains a reservation form that should be completed to get the wedding availability and send back to us at your earliest convenience.

        2. Once you have a confirmation form for the wedding, you will have two months to e-mail us a copy of the Reservation Manifest/Invoice from the Tour Operator (confirmation must include name of Bride & Groom, arrival - departure dates and time, name of Tour Operator Company).

         

        What is a Reservation Manifest/Invoice from the Tour Operator?! Is this just the flight itinerary?

          Reign what she is referring to is your reservation confirmation with the resort that you and your groom have hotel accomodations. In most cases the weddings are booked atleast 8-12 months in advance at which time you wouldnt be able to buy your airfare if you wanted to...most airlines only have fares 6 months out.

           

          Rebecca: Welcome back!! Do you have any pictures you can share with us??

            OK, the way it's phrased through me off. I would think most people that get married at BBPD stay at BBPD too. I wish she'd just say, we need confirmation that you've made reservations with the hotel. Tour Operator is a weird term.
