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 :)

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
