About ellynina14

  1. My TA.. Dina, has been super super helpful... even with all the questions I'm sending her way... She's from this site... In case you haven't found some help. I tried coordinating myself for a bit, but just got lost and confused amongst the no call backs or lack of response from the WC's in Dominican Republic... My TA has been a godsend!!!

    total wedding cost?

    Wow.. does anyone here have an average $$ for Gran Bahia Principe. Mine is about 4500.00 but that includes a private reception. I still haven't added the extra flowers and cake I would like.....

    Private Receptions

    Hello Everyone I'll be marrying my wonderful guy on March 14, 2009 at the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana. Has anyone had a private reception there? What was it like? How far in advance did you book the restaurant, does the dancing happen right there? Are the dj's good? I have sooo many questions. Any advice/feedback would be awesome!!!

    Group Rate Costs

If there's a particular company or TA that you want to use, but their vacations rate are too high. If you can provide proof of lower package, they will price match in order to keep your business. I also like using BookIt.com® Travel Specials: Discounted Hotels, Resorts & Vacation Deals. I normally can find packages with them much lower than most TAs. The only website that was lower than BookIt.com® Travel Specials: Discounted Hotels, Resorts & Vacation Deals was beachdestintations.com. Their website looked a little sketchy to me. So, I spoke to my TA at bookit.com about the lower rate. He was able to pricematch it. FYI, you can also contact BookIt.com® Travel Specials: Discounted Hotels, Resorts & Vacation Deals for Group Hotel Reservations by BookIt.com. Their group reservation department comes with a free group coordinator. I believe you can input your information and they will contact you with a quote. Or, you can call directly. Here's the contact info for my TA: Steve @ 1-888-782-9722 x.6244. Hi, I was browsing through this thread since I am looking to book Gran Bahia Principe for March 2009, and was curios about packages. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for recommending Bookit. I just found a fabulous quote!!!!
  6. Thanks SOO MUCH!!! I just got in contact with the Paradisus and they are much more organized than Bahia Principe. No reservations are made, but I feel like I just discovered a hidden gem.... I'll keep everyone updated... Still hoping for March 2009

I think I'm going to choose Gran Bahia Bavaro in Punta Cana, but I'm open to other resorts... (maybe DREAMS?? or Paradisus) Any opinions on this (as to which resort would be the easiest to deal with) would be great. Also, did you go through a wedding planner for destination weddings like NancyK or DestinationWedding.com? I'm a very nervous and busy person.. but I don't know if it's worth getting a planner. PLEASE HELP... Hopeful Wedding Date: March 2009 =) MySpace

I know how hard it is to plan without much help. Congratulations!!!! and Thanks so much for your offer. I do have one question. Did you plan the wedding yourself or did you get the help of a TA? I tried calling over at Gran Bahia and was very confused....
