I think it sounded ok if you don't have a whole lot of people.  We ended up doing a group booking with a TA because with the discounts (book 5 rooms get a 6th free, then $1000 off the group price per 10 people booked) it ended up being reasonable, and out of that only 1 couple decided to go with orbitz instead.  I think they're regretting it a little because they didn't realize at the time that everyone else would book with the group, and are now the only ones on a separate flight.

 

Lindsay_H Do you know if these discounts apply to all people who book group rooms at Dreams? Or was this a deal your TA was able to get you specifically? Thanks! :)

I'm pretty sure the book 5 rooms get the 6th for free was offered by Dreams, and I know the $1000 off per 10 people was a special that the airline was having.  Though we were told that when your travel agent requests to block a number of rooms for a group the resorts raise their prices, so i think getting the 6th room free offsets that cost.

Hi Ladies,

Just wanted to let you know that DPC has updated their Wedding Information Package Brochure and surprise, surprise - they have increased the prices of their wedding packages.

The biggest increase was to the Complementary "Dreams Weddings in Paradise Package", which I guess is because they got wise to all of us going with that one and then picking and choosing other options a la carte!

 

You can check it out here: http://www.amresorts.com/wedding_guides/drepc-wedding-guide.pdf

 

Figured I'd pass along the info.

Thanks Jenn, i figured they would go up. I wonder if they will honor the old prices if we booked in advance for 2011.... I'll ask my WC and see what she says!

Thanks for the info. I am now almost officially a Dreams Punta Cana bride, my travel agent confirmed that they had an opening that day and I faxed my reservation form to her, so now I am just awaiting confirmation that Dreams has accepted it.

 

I am way excited!  Crossing my fingers that we'll be getting married May 30, 2011

If we book 7 nights of more the basic package is still included right?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
