    Hello! I'm new to this site and thought I could pick your brains!


    I am about to sign my contract with La Zebra and fork over my deposit that holds the whole resort for our wedding.

    I have some concerns with the contract so I wanted to see if any of you could give me some feedback on it.


    1.  Giving all the money upfront. I understand putting down a deposit and I understand maybe paying 1/2 of the whole wedding costs before arrival...but paying the whole thing before it even happens...it feels a little uneasy to me. I trust them and I have been speaking with an awesome contact over there but I just wanted to know how you all felt about it too.


    2. The cancelation policy. It is all over the board in the contract and contradicting. I would not hold them responsible for any natural disaster but some parts in the contract they say they will reschedule the event within a years time and no refund and some places it just says no refund.


    I plan on buying travel insurance and i plan on adressing my concerns with my contact, i just wanted to see how you all felt about this or did you have the same concerns.

      Good instincts amanditaxo310 ! and good call on not feeling comfortable with paying all the money up front.......that is a big red flag for me as well !

      I agree with you that a reputable business would have the practise of charging a deposit of up to 50%, but in my experience, it's always been a mistake to pay the full amount up front.

      Doing that leaves you with no leverage .....definitely not a good position to be in.


      I wish you all the best with your decisions, and that all your plans work out just the way you wish them to! Cheers :)
