  5. Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea! Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different. In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked! This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol) I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach! That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
  6. Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe? Thanks again
  7. Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form: https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
  8. Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far?
  9. I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts! My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
  10. Hello! I am hoping someone can help me/point me in the right direction of where to start! Me and my fiancé are hoping to marry in the Dominican 2021 we live in the UK and seem to be struggling to be able to look at anything in further detail this early on. The trouble is I did want to book and start planning early especially with needing to give my guests as much notice as possible. I want a wedding in the Dominican with then myself and partner to honeymoon somewhere else in the Caribbean. I have contacted local travel agents however it only seems to be set packages that are being offered and no flights or wedding packages are available to book yet! anyone that is marrying or has got married abroad.. please tell me the best way to get about it and if there is anyway I can start to get an idea of plans, prices and dates. Thank you
  11. Yes it really sucks because we will never get back those memories. I have written reviews on trip advisor, facebook, wedding wire and here. Hopefully people see my reviews and don't make the same mistake I did.
  12. This is such a shame, I am really so sorry this is happening to you Well, I would exhaust all sites you can write reviews on -- Wedding Wire, Facebook, Trip Advisor, etc. If you paid by credit card, can you contest the charge since he failed to deliver the product? Also, maybe contact the venue where you got married -- they may have a working relationship with him and letting them know may force his hand since he wants to keep a good relationship with them. It's really so awful when vendors do this to couples, especially when it comes to a day that means so much to them. Sending good thoughts your way that you will somehow get your photos!!!
  13. Hi MarieSam, yes we had a contract with him and he said that he would have my pictures edited before I left Punta Cana and then I would have to choose the pictures I liked and he would then print them put them in an album and ship it to me. I called him the night before we were leaving and he said he was having issues with the internet and that he would email them to me a few days later. It's now 5 months and he is still ignoring my calls, texts and emails. I have been writing negative reviews everywhere I can and It looks like he blocked me on facebook because I cant go onto his page anymore.

  19. Finding an all-inclusive resort that offers a good balance of family-friendly fun and an equally relaxing space centered for an adults-only crowd can be quite difficult. But Now Onyx Punta Cana Resort & Spa passes the test with flying colors especially when it comes to the property’s adults-only section, which offers guests an intimate yet spacious area that soothes and relaxes all the senses. The first thing one notices about this resort is that everything is expertly laid out in that nothing ever feels too far away, including the family-friendly area and the adults-only area. This makes it convenient for those who want to enjoy the best of both worlds — those who want to partake in the festive spirit of the family-friendly area, but also unwind in the serenity of the adults section. The adults-only area is framed by ground level rooms each equipped with wonderful private Bali beds and their own plunge pools. If you want to immerse yourself in relaxing vibes — this is the spot for you. Just steps away from the adults-only rooms is the quiet peace of the adults only pool, swim-up bar and the unique island lounge spaces throughout the massive pool area. Large pool mat floats can also be found poolside and are free to use. What I really loved about the pool area is that there was always ample seating and lounge chairs around the pool. If there’s anything that kills a relaxing vibe, it’s having to scramble to get a lounge chair. But that was never a problem during our visit and to top it off, the service around the pool was always top-notch. The servers are attentive and the drinks are delicious. For those who want to splurge a little, you can rent one of the island lounge spaces for the day and it comes with two extremely comfortable Bali beds, fresh towels delivered to your island throughout the day, drink/food service and two bottles of champagne. The island spaces also come with their own private stairs into the pool, so it’s easy to dip into the pool if you find yourself needing to cool off a little. I felt so at incredibly relaxed whenever we spent time at this pool and if you find yourself there long enough, the sunset view facing the ocean is exactly what tropical dreams are made of — the ocean breeze will calm your soul and the view is absolutely spectacular. Now Onyx offers the perfect mix of family-friendly appeal and adults-only serenity. It’s the perfect resort for wedding couples who want to accommodate guests with children, but also satisfy guests who want a relaxing adults-only getaway. And to be quite honest, this resort excels on so many levels in terms of food, service, accommodations and amenities, I'd even consider this property over a complete adults-only resort. Yes, it's that good. Wright Travel Agency is the official travel agency of the Best Destination Wedding Forum.

  20. I don’t know the first thing about his photography, but he’s a nasty YouTube commenter under his real name, if that tells you anything about his character.
  21. I'm so sorry to hear this Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients.
  22. STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
  23. For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
  24. Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them. Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only? What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
  25. Hello Everyone! I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020. I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
  26. Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
