Thanks to both of you that's really helpful! I've spoken to a couple travel agents I didn't particularly like because they were clearly pushing me toward resorts they had partnerships with, rather than the resorts I liked. But I definitely need someone to handle the guest travel.

Yay!  It's a great feeling getting that confirmation from them.  I know how you feel about all the extras.  They must have given me an older extra list which stated that open bar is included with the private menu per person fee. 

 

I guess now its an additional $20 per person for the international open bar.  That just means budgeting more wisely... 

 

Which TA are you using?

Ya thats the frusterating thing is the bar... we are going to an all inclusive resort and have to pay for a bar... i dont really understand that...

 

We are using a lady named Nicola from Maritime Travel in St. Albert, Alberta. She has been amazing and has got us such good quotes for our guests!

I am also confused about the bar fee! I read some older posts that said there is a bar very close to the receptions area (if you choose Baja Norte area, which seems most popular). And that they had their guests go to that bar. They gave them a nice tip to make sure they gave attention to their guests quickly. Anyone else hear about this?

I have also read this on other threads which has convinced me to skip the open bar.

 

Since our ceremony is at 4:00 PM there is some time until our reception at 7:00 PM.  While we take pictures, our guests will have time to freshen up before dinner, relax, drink at the lobby bar if they wish or take advantage of their liquor dispensers in their rooms.  I'm not sure if getting the open bar is worth it because not everyone in our party will take advantage of it.

@@samFEB2016 and @@sbodnar4 I was a bridesmaid for a 2010 destination wedding at Riu Palace in Cabo and you've both chosen a great resort. The rooms were clean as were the pools. It was very relaxing and service was wonderful. My friend opted against having a bar and honestly, I didn't even notice. The bars are close by and we'd just grab drinks after going to the washroom. I do remember some of the servers getting us drinks for us (tipping generously may have helped )

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
