Switching Wedding Venues Last Minute :(

Recommended Posts

I am so frustrated! Basically my family owns a time share at the Mayan Palace resort so it seemed like a no brainer to have my wedding there. We get a great deal on rooms and have basically the nicest package so the rooms are just to die for and i love the resort. Always had an amazing time when I stayed.  I did not even research anything else because I figured everything was comparable and I set the date so fast in order to get the time off work by my deadline. Now, things are just getting ridiculous. I already thought the prices were steep for dinner, the ceremony etc, for what little you get but they weren't outrageous. Then I started getting into more detail about the extra prices for everything. What really set me off is- for example- i wanted to do a simple centerpiece of some fake flowers, a lantern, maybe a candle and a picture---would cost me like max 40$ per table to buy these and bring with. The charge per table for JUST the centerpiece- and mind you they are "legally unable" to set these up themselves so my friends would have to do it--is roughly 250 US dollars PER TABLE! like almost 10 x the cost of the thing! plus they said like 150$ per chair to hang something on it!!!! THAT IS INSANE! 

 

I am just freaking out because part of the point was to save money. I also want a decent looking wedding that was in my head. I see so many brides here with nice packages that are so reasonable. My mom is going to start emailing/calling the people she knows at the resort tomorrow through this week. But I am really looking into other venues. I dont know what will be available 7 mo in advance (i really do want to stay at our resort, and some guests are already booked so I cant change the date by more than a day or two). I am willing to lose the 500$ deposit if we cant figure this out (that is only 2 tables setup btw!) . I am just so stressed! anyone else been in any kind of similar situation or have any advice?

I was in the same boat. I thought the now ambers additional costs were outrageous! So I changed to le kliff with about 3.5 months to go. The resort offered to put my $500 deposit as a room credit which I am using for a mani/pedi and hair and make up for my bridesmaids and I. Le kliff is still going to cost about the same ($5k) but I am getting a mariachi band, dj, a guarantee that we are the only wedding, transportation etc. adding all of that to the resort would have been thousands more, plus it wouldn't have been private, there was another wedding etc. I haven't regretted my decision and am soooooooo excited about le kliff!

I am thinking now at this point it is too little too late even if we are able to reduce the cost....i wonder how this will all work out!

I don't think you are too little, too late then!

I would seriously consider something else .... like the other poster said, she paid the same but got MORE!  and didn't even lose out on her deposit, she got it as credit.  Worth a shot IMO!

Think about a wedding planner, they will help find you deals, will know what places may be open on your date, and help keep you stress-free, this has been priceless for us

You still have lots of time! If I remember correctly from another post you are in Nuevo vallarta? Le kliff has been amazing to plan with, I would highly recommend. Also, you could email the dazzling details - they did my flowers but seem to be amazing planners as well. There are so many nice venues in puerto/Nuevo vallarta - just depends on your budget. Check las caletas (more $ with a large group), a restaurant or villa.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
