Anyone married at Occidental...

Recommended Posts

...Punta Cana? There may be a thread already, but I can't find it. All I see are Paradisus and Dreams. My TA quoted us for the Occidental and it looks nice, but obviously all pictures on websites look nice.

 

Help...anyone? Thank you :)

I have only talked to my TA, who said that she has had several brides to be married there...I have just not seen anyone on here to even mention it. Of course, I would love to hear everyone's opinions on here, since I have gotten so much great info on here already.

I am getting married at the Occidental in April 2009. It looks good in the pictures, but I am having a few issues with the Wedding Coordinator...don't email them - they don't respond :) Just call and they will help you. Have you decided you are going their yet?

I have not put down my deposit yet, but we are on the book for June 2009 at Occidental. I am working with a TA so I haven't had to contact the WC yet...only heard about it through my TA. Keep me posted on how things go for you and I'll do the same :)

Hey,

Im also interested in a Punta Cana wedding, but my guests are on a tight budget. How much are you expecting your guests to pay for a week (tax included) if u dont mind me asking?!?

 

thanks

xoxo

We are also getting married at the Occidental in May 2009. The WC Laura can take a long time to respond, but when she does she is very helpful. I try to ask all my questions in one email that way I am not filling up her inbox. Excluding airfare (since it is different for everyone) my guests are paying $659/person for 8day/7night stay at the Occidental. Our guests were also on a budget and thats one of the reasons we choose the Occidental. The WC has sent me pictures of previous weddings at the resort as examples, they are non pro, but they are beautiful. The only bad thing I have read about the resort is that the water for the showers doesn't get much hotter than luke warm unless you ask. (I figure who wants a steaming hot shower when its over 80 degress outside anyways!)

Hey Teresa,

Thats an amazing deal, since the wedding budget for me and my fiance isnt a problem but for my guests it really is.

I was wondering if you could e-mail me any info/pics you have from the resort. I'll private message you my e-mail.

Are you also having a private reception? And where are you gettin married? I want to do it in a gazebo; hopefully the resort has a pretty one.

 

Thanks for your help :)

xoxo
