For those of you who are getting married here or already have, compared to the resort prices, was it a big difference? Do you think it saved you money or added on some extra fees?

 

Also, the $500 for decorations, does that include absolutely everything or do you have to pay for things separately like the chair covers, centerpieces, etc.

@tasha682 We've compared the resort prices and I guess they are about the same.  HOWEVER.  Kukua is amazing, its not in a resort so you won't have people gawking at you the entire time and its much more intimate.  If you rent it exclusively which I believe is $1,000 USD then you and your guests will have the entire resort and beach to yourself which is what we are doing.  The ambience is unbeatable and if you're looking for something less cookie cutter than this is the way to go.  Bego is really awesome and very helpful.  I'm not sure about the $500 for decorations.  We're paying the entire $1200 for the ceremony, dinner and various other decorations for the ceremony which includes all linens in your colors, centerpieces, note cards, you name it.  Its definately worth not lugging all that stuff in your suitcase.  Planning a wedding here is virtually stress free and they are willing to work with your budget.  Our resort (Gran Bahia Ambar) is right next door so we're excited that we can come check out the place by a nice stroll on the beach!

 

Please feel free to ask me any questions.  My email is my username at yahoo

Has anyone been in contact with Bego recently? I am a little nervous. We sent our deposit by Western Union in January, and I have emailed twice to make sure it was received, but have not heard back from Bego. She is usually so quick at getting back to me, so that is why I am a little worried! Has anyone heard anything? Thanks!

@RenMichele I got an email from her answering a question of mine at the end of February. If that helps!

    I sent in our deposit the end of January and Bedo responded right away to inform me they received it.

    @RenMichele I got an email from Bego on Wednesday. Have you emailed her recently? It took her a couple days to reply to my last email, but she usually responds within 24 hours. Maybe your emails went to her junk folder? I hope you hear back soon!! She has been wonderful to work with so far!!

    Thanks ladies! I had emailed 3 times since January with no responses, but it turns out my email was the issue, which is strange, since I had been emailing with her previously. They must have changed the junk mail settings in my office. I called last week and everything is ok! I thought it was strange because she was always so quick to respond. She is just as amazing on the phone, and I am more excited than ever to get married at Kukua.
