    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...dding-guide.pdf

           

          Figured I'd pass along the info.

          Jenn

            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

                Thanks for the info Jenn!  

                 

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