Whats Negotiable?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious what peoples experience are with negotiating for things during the planning process. I'd think that most things are negotiable to a certain degree, afterall, I'll be bringing in a ton of guaranteed money for the resort. So far I'm not getting any love from the resort, but have been able to negotiate with a photographer. Whats been your experience?

I forgot to add, my fiance works at a 5 star hotel and for weddings there everything is negotiable, they even throw in tons of comps, granted the amount of money being spent is way more than what we want to spend, but still....hes totally shocked that nothing seems negotiable

Best way to negotiate is to use a TA that has an existing relationship with the hotel/resort you are considering. These TAs are privy to discounts and bonus offers that the general public calling resort directly simply aren't. You can alway negotiate- but keep in mind with people like photographers, that you are paying not only for the hours they are snapping pictures in front of you- but the often dozens of hours editing and formatting your images. This is a lot of work and these artists deserve in many instances- the rates they charge. The cost of linens and decor set up? Now that's something most all inclusives SHOULD be willing to work with you on,

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
