    Hi Everyone,

     

    i hope everyone's plans are coming along nicely and no-one is too stressed out!! lol

     

    I'm looking for information on the best way to pay your final bills for your wedding, my thinking behind this question is because every time i try to use my card on a foreign website etc for a large amount on money my bank automatically declines the transaction.

     

    Being from the UK the last thing i want to be doing is chasing around my bank from abroad to get the money sorted.

     

    Past brides i would love to hear your input on how you went about it.

     

    We are getting married in Cancun then going on the Las Vegas afterwards and im just stressing out about having to take so much money with us to cover everything.

    i know everything should be ok but you always hear these horror stories that peoples rooms/safes have been broken into etc

     

    Anyway hope you are all well, any comments are more than welcome.

     

    Mark & Elaine

      Call your credit card company and tell them to put a note on your file that you will be in "x" country on "x" dates.

        Hello Elaine,

        The best way will be to do wire transfers and pay in cash only the last minute payments that will represent less than 1000 usd. and as Mel says, call your credit card company to let them know that you are traveling.

         

        Best Regards!

          Mark82,

           

          Hello Elaine,

           

          As a wedding planner in the Riviera maya,  We are also agreeing with everyone else advice. We advice you to maybe choose to pay your final payments via PayPal,obviously this method would work when your vendors also use Paypal.  We have found that this method has been stress free.

           

          Feel to ask us for advice and we will be happy to help.

           

          Happy Planning!

          I agree I think paypal is much easier and I feel much secure using that form of payment.
