Bringing own alcohol - corkage fee

Recommended Posts

Did anyone bring their own alcohol to their wedding in Cancun? There are several hotels that will allow us to bring our own alcohol and pay a corkage fee. We've calculated that this will probably save us several thousand dollars.

 

Have any of you done this? If so, where did you get the alcohol? (Costco?? Wal-Mart??) How did you determine how much you should purchase? If there were leftovers, what did you do with it?

 

Thanks in advance!

My Cancun wedding isn't until May 10 but I am also doing a corkage fee. I am purchasing all the liquor from La Europea LA EUROPEA They have everything that you would need and the prices are good. Although we are just guessing on the amount to buy, we are planning on buying 30 bottles and we are expecting about 100 people.

Thanks! Someone said somewhere that if you don't open the bottle that Wal-Mart lets you return ithuh.gif Have you heard that? I'd rather have too much alcohol than run out, so I was thinking if we had any left, we could just tip the vendors with it. But if we could return it, that would be better!

 

Let me know how this works out for you. I'm worried that it may end up being more of a pain than it's worth. Keep me posted! Thanks!!

hi! i know that you can buy alcohol at costco and return it if it is not opened...but you cannot return wine that has been cooled (white wine) because the label comes off when wet. this way if you buy too much it is not a problem. they have pretty much the same selection as the states for wine and alcohol choices. we are going to bring in wine and having an open bar for mixed drinks. check and see about the mixers (coke, soda, et.) because you can bring these in too.

Hi Ladies:

 

I'm wondering if anyone has purchased champagne at Wal-Mart, Costco, or somewhere else in the RM.

 

The house champagne at our hotel is very modest (read: icky), and I want something better to toast my marriage with.

 

And if you did, where did you buy it, what kind did you buy, and how did prices compare to home?

 

Thanks!!!

Hey girls, this is a GREAT topic to bring up. I'm wondering if anyone knows of anywhere else to buy wine in RM than walmart? I'm not a wine drinker, but my family and my Fi family are. FI family actually does wine tasting all over the world, and actually hold wine tastings for Molly Dooker in the US and we have a couple guests who are actual alcohol connoisseur's and god forbid they ever buy wine from Walmart. (They have to have extra home insurance for the $100,000's of dollars of alcohol in their basement.) I'm trying to keep to a minimum w/ what I bring w/ us due to excess baggage fees, so we'll need some fabulous wine down there.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
