Im just wondering do people pay the hotel every month if they have the cash.....Im not geting married till next july and i have payed the hotel €15,000 so far, is this the normal???
Just really dont want a big bill come next year !
IMO, ye should have kept it in a seperate wedding acc instead of giving it to the hotel to earn interest on in their acc - we have a seperate acc for wedding with card & chq book for paying.
We only paid €500 deposit and paid the rest when we were leaving the day after the wedding.
We paid €1000 deposit, will pay another €1000 6mths before and think some more a few weeks before..
Its entirely up to yourself but I'd say your hotel were delighted you have offered your money so far in advance - I assume you got significant discount/freebies from them for doing this..
As another poster said I would have prefered to keep the money in the likes of a credit union account were you could have made a few pound on it.
We only paid the hotel €1000 deposit and dont have to pay the balance until wedding day.
Did the hotel ask for the money upfront? I've never heard of ppl paying so far in advance. I would be afraid of loosing all this money if something happenad with the hotel
we paid €500 deposit, 80% a couple days before hand and the rest the day after the wedding.
We have a weddign fund but have only given the hotel their deposit in case they went bust / problems etc. I also think there is more room for negotiation when they still have to get paid...
We paid €1000 deposit and don't have to pay the rest until the day after the wedding
Yeh we're the same, deposit of €1250 paid now, then the rest due the day after the wedding.
