The cheapest way to pay is a bank wire transfer. We calculated each form of payment. The most expensive is paying by credit card because depending on your package- that price can soar. Sending them a bank certified check- you have to fed ex it and fed ex charged us $60 to send our documents to the church- and they were lost along the way. The wire transfer depends on your bank- but I was able to submit it online through Chase- I don't remember but the charge was less than $25 I believe and the resort also assesses a $25 fee to accept- so we ended up paying $50 as opposed to all the other options which were far more expensive.

 

EVKnowsitall you are a godsend to these Palma Real discussions. Thanks for the info. I was simply going to do payments with credit card and yup, 5% of $10K+ will end up working out to a huge "admin fee." We also bank with Chase so great to know there is an online wire transfer option... we will take this payment route.

Ladies I finally chose a package. My fiancé and I chose it because with the changes that best fit our wedding weekend. We have arraigned to have the Welcome BBQ the night before on the beach. We are debating wether or not to have the photographer and videographer that night as well to capture such an important time of our wedding. We are also planning on having the fire dancers That night because it will give a great feel and leave more room for dancing at the reception lol... Everything is still in the works but as I get closer I feel this knot in my stomach I think it's my anxiety. I have 6 months to go... yay!
