I am sure you're doing fine...and if there is anything we can help with let us know. Make a list, you might be surprised at what you already have done. And whatever needs to still be done, ask for help, and get one thing done at a time! :)

I'm asking because our final payment for our rooms is due the same day our final payment is due to the resort. I want to make sure the number of our guests doesn't change and possibly offer them a choice of entrees since I didn't think about that before we sent out invites.

 

 

I'm gettig marriedin 26 days and I just sent my payment in this morning. I tried to send sooner but WC couldnt get answers from Lomas about things and  I wasn't paying until everything was finalized, questions were answered and my detail sheet updated.

 

I am so thrilled. For 64 guests and a sky deck wedding with coktail recetpion, reception and DJ I am only at $8,000. Ladies, keep pushing, you can negotiate anything, even the chivarly chairs. :)

For the ladies who have been to the resort already. There's no need to worry about food saftey right? I have a couple of guests freaking out and I really thought it wouldnt be a problem as I hadnt heard anything. I am just bringing my 14 month old and there will be two other toddlers so that's the addes concern.

 

For those who have guests with small kids, do you know what they did about food? Do you know if they prvided microwaves in the rooms?

 

Thanks!

Hello Ladies!

I'm a newbie...this is my first post. blush2.gif My fiance and I have had a tough time deciding on a location and date, but we are very interested in Azul Sensatori.  Not sure if you ladies can help, but I have a few questions...

1.  We are expecting approx. 50 to 60 guests, can we have a private reception at one of the restaurants (maybe Spoon or Zocalo) without incurring an extra fee? 

2.  When choosing the Sky Wedding, do we have to or should we also choose a silver or wedding package although we are interested in a private sit down dinner?

3.  Are the GI Vacation Consultants listed on the site really free of charge?

4.  Do they offer welcome parties/dinners and at what cost?  Will they just allow reservations for all of our guests at a restaurant one night?

5.  Anyone know the cost of center pieces for the tables, additional bouquets for bridesmaids, etc?

6.  For my initial contact requesting info on the resort, should I contact one of the GI consultants or the hotel directly?

Thanks so much!!!!

Hi Amanda.  You can reassure them there is no concern about food safety.  I just remind my guests its a 4+ star resort...not a 2 star with unrecognizable food :).  Plus, their main selling point is their Gourmet food, so if it made everyone sick you would've heard about it by now!

 

Also, the water they serve at restaurants goes through a special filtering (its described in some brochure somewhere - I think its reverse osmosis, but not positive), and if that still doesnt ease their worry, there is bottled water available everywhere!  They even put a large bottled water next to your bathroom sink if your nervous to brush your teeth with the sink water. 

 

I'm pretty sure each restaurant offers a few kids menu choices, but since we didnt have any little ones, I didn't actually see them.  Just saw the high chairs and toys that they hand out at each restaurant.  Also, there are not microwaves in any rooms (except the presidential suites), but theres probably one somewhere you could use.  Its amazing what you can get there if you just ask around :)

1. There are tons of different options for receptions with sit down dinners. Your WC from the resort will walk you thru it

2. I would look at several of the packages. They have a free one now as well

3. I think Gi makes their money on a kick back from the resort but I didn't use them as My travel Agent

4. They have a bunch of private event packages - PM you email and I can send you the Banquet Kit - I am having a welcome party and a reception

5. For a vaugue group of pricing check out Lomas Travel. It's a good way to budget but then know you can custom anything

6. I would go to GI if you plan on using them as your travel agent. If you are using another travel agent go straight to a wedding consultant.

 

Congrats and WELCOME! This thread and ladies are the BEST

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
