JMK923... It is pretty funny. At first when I saw yours my heart sunk (like we showed up wearing the same dress LOL).. But quickly thought your guests don't cross with my guests so who will know LOL but everyone on the forum. Great taste. msnwink.gif

What rooms classifications are the majority of people going with?

Kaleigh, 

 

I'm really unsure about this as well. Our TA is recommending that we book 10 rooms (half of them premium or suites), however, I'm thinking it would easier to block out 10 basic rooms and then, I assume, our guests could upgrade.

 

Does any one have any insight or experience with this?

 

Also, how far in advance did you all block out your guest rooms? We are 9 1/2 months out and I feel like our TA isn't in any rush.

 You are definitely doing good 9 1/2 months out...none of it moves as fast as you think it should! Our wedding is November 1st...and we started booking rooms 7 months out(only because that's when we made the DW decision!) We decided to pre-book 15 rooms and we just split them between 3 categories(family side, adult only, and swim up adult only)...majority in the cheapest category on the family side. Our guests filled up the 15 rooms pretty quick, but I am SO glad we booked that many. We have 67 people and 33 rooms! Don't stress too much about the number or the category...I did at first and it worked out fine!  Once your guest start to book, they shift the rooms around! You shouldn't be locked into those categories...they are just like place holders!(at least that's what my TA told me!) **side note...These are also the only categories I had my TA price out for my guests...if they wanted another category or upgrade they just spoke with my TA individually. This just kept the email that was sent out concise!**

 

I will say that most of our guests are split between the least expensive on the family side and the least expensive on the adult only side. We decided on the Jacuzzi Swim up Suite for us...we are traveling to another resort for our honeymoon and wanted to wait on the crazy room until we are there! and...I am thinking we will not be in our room much the week of the wedding! Hope this helps! i am no expert...just my experience so far!! Hope this helps!

Yay! I was one of the lucky brides to run into Tammy while at Azul this past week. We just got back (had our wedding June 28) and already can not wait to go back!! Our wedding was seriously amazing and we had the best time ever!!! My guests have not stopped complimenting me on choice of resort, how awesome everything was and how they had the best time ever. Comments that were popular "Best wedding ever," "you seriously know how to throw a party," "your DJ was phenomenal!," "everyone at this resort is incredibly friendly and the staff bends over backward for you!," "your attention to detail and sentiment is unmatched- tour OOT bags, your decorations, programs, everything..." I could go on! Everyone absolutely loved Azul. I will wrote a review soon and post pis as soon as I get them. Our photographer (Samuel Luna) will post some teasers soon but the rest will take 8 weeks. In the meantime here are 2 teasers from my friends iPhone 400 400

Hi,

 

I was the other lucky bride that you bumped into.  We all had the time of our lives at the resort.  Everything was absolutely wonderful and perfect.  We could not have been any happier.  Everyone said the resort was absolutely amazing.  A full review and pictures will come soon.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
