just received my contract - the resort is charging me as well to move the chairs from ceremony reception which i think is pretty stupid


is anyone getting extra appetizers - i have a total of 27 people.. they are charging me 30$ for 2 extra - even though its not alot of money i just dont think we need it because most of us will be taking pictures... or should i just get it?

I'm starting to get a little annoyed by all the nickel and diming, to be honest.  I feel like there's a lot of extra charges than what was spelled out on the original information I received.  I got an email back from Pilar about the day pass for photographers and she said it's $150 instead of $65.  When I said that's not what I was promised, she said that was "the best she could do."  :angry:

I was very happy with our wedding at Now Jade but I agree the extra costs were outrageous. They just kept coming and coming. I had to do a lot of rearranging with what we wanted to make it reasonable.

 

We bought some extra appetizers and it was not at all necessary. Our wedding was at 4:30 and I remember there being a lot of appetizers left, people were more into the drinks. I say no to extra appetizers.

 

My paperwork stated $65 for the photographer so I told Pilar that is what I was quoted and that's what I expect to pay, she let us pay $130 for 2 photographers.

 

We had lanterns hung during the reception and when we paid our bill they had no mention of these and then they were charged to our room for $40 when we were checking out. I think when they make the mistake of forgetting to include something small like hanging lanterns they should eat the cost.

We ended up paying for enough appies for 50 people...and they were all gone by the time we got to the cocktail hour...the pictures looks delicious though! If you are just two people over I wouldn't pay for the extra. We were charged to put our chair bows on once. Then there wasn't a charge to move the chairs from the ceremony to the reception. We also paid another $40 to have the paper lanterns hung, they looked beautiful. But I did have to ask for them back the next day after my stuff was returned but they were not. They were returned though with no issues. The little charges didn't really bug me, gave me peace of mind to ow it was going to be done and I didn't have to worry about it. What did shock me was the taxes and gratuities and all that part if the charges!!!

Also, we did our reception in the bamboo room and had a private bar set up. We did not pay for this. I'm not sure if it was because we had a large group or it's just standard, but I'm glad I didn't ask for it and pay $350!

We did pay to extend the reception an extra 2 hours...it was expensive but so so worth it, especially if you have a DJ. We did the reception from 7pm to midnight, and still went to the disco after that followed by many guests jumping in the pool!

I REALLY hope they let us extend our reception until 11 at Castaways....3 hours just isn't long enough!!

@candle23, did they also charge you for reception decorations (i.e. decorating your tables?)  That is the FOURTH decoration-type related charge they have on my contract.  Ridiculous.
