<60 Days From Secrets Wo Wedding...... Venting!

Recommended Posts

Ok.so I just found out the SWO's only solution to the issue is that they want "ME" to pay for a tent just in case there is inclement weather. Because they have a huge event that was booked over a year ago where this company wants all of the indoor ballrooms. So initially I only reserved the outdoor venue for 10 people, but was told that I can ALWAYS upgrade. So now that I have been trying to upgrade for 25 people, SWO is telling me that theydon't have a back up venue (indoor) in case of inclement weather. I think this is unfair. I was asked to rent a tent in case it rains, at my expense or I can consider changing my date to the next day and only 11am and 2pm are available. I AM DO FURIOUS!!!! and don't know what to do. Of course it's too late to cancel. If it were just my funds I would, However I have these 25 people that have paid their balances. ANY SUGGESTIONS!! Everytime I call them I get so upset I want to fuss and cuss, but I am going to start crying!!!! HELP!!

That is CRAZY!! I don't know what to say. If you rent the tent and it doesn't rain do you at least get some of your money back?

Also, is the reception outside, maybe having a tent will give everybody some shade if it is bright and sunny outside. So it won't be so hot.

 

I honestly don't know.. It's just CRAZY!!

I am so sorry to hear you are dealing with this stress 2 months out. I do think it was their responsibility to book your back up option or pay for the tent at this point since it is their fault. Have you called their corporate office versus the hotel? I think you'd have better luck with them.

 

Keep us posted and good luck!

Hey @@Soon2bmzbrooks ,

 

So sorry your hotel is putting you through this, but it is usually their responsibility of the resort to have a back up plan in case of rain.  At least that is what the hotels in the Riviera Maya do.   However if they say you need to get a tent (this is my advice to you, you would only need to confirmed/book this latest 72 hours not earlier. is this something your resort would let you do?

 

Happy Planning 

Joyce

That is horrible I am getting married there next year and I hope I do not have a similar situation. How much is it to rent the tent, I do not think that should be a cost you incur as they should have had a back up option for you.

@@Soon2bmzbrooks that is terrible of the resort to spring up on you. Were you provided with any contracts when you booked your wedding? Is there any clause regarding inclement weather? Unusually it will stipulate what the resort does incase of rain, storm, hurricane. When we researched resorts for our wedding we always asked what happens in case of rain, and they all had a covered location for a back-up.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
