So it's official, I have left DW.com and am now with The weddingholiday.com. We will see how it goes. It is soo exciting. In 24 hours i had a quote and booked my 10 seats. So happy with  my decision of changing. I was wondering does anyone who is getting married near the 31st of May want to share a photgrapher with me? Please get back to me. Thanks guys!

I think we're going to skip hiring the wedding planner. 

Now, do you have any suggestions for TA's...preferrably a GI one so we can get the extra bonuses?huh.gif

 

 

Hi!  I just sent you a private message.  I just had some bad experiences with a few of the TA's that are mentioned...but mentioned badly too!  I just found mine to be wonderful.  (so far, and yes, I haven't done much but reserve the spots for the wedding --sky too, and the reception).  But, she was quick to get my date, my rate and my group locked in and never pressured me.

So happy for you.  Sounds like you made the right decision.  And already things are looking up  :-)

Not sure if someone already answered this but it is the lowest number of nights in the lowest level room. Basically you add up what that would be and deduct from your room cost, meaning that you don't have to stay in the lowest level room you just have that amount given back as a refund after the your stay. That part stinks too...the fact that it is a refund and not a true disocunt but hey it is something. I think we will get about $950 back when it is all said and done. We are staying for a week in the luxury swim up suite (we got a free upgrade too) for about $1200 total after our discount. I think that's a pretty great price.

Just curious if any of you have gotten an explanation on how the B&G stay free promo works.  I just emailed Carolina to check.  My TA had said it is based on whichever number of nights is most prominent in your rooms, but the contract makes it seem like whatever is the lowest amount.  Most of our guests are booked at 4 nights with some others at 3, 5, and 7 nights.  So, I'm hoping we get at least the 4 night figure back at the end, not just the 3 since that ones the lowest.  Hmmmm

Ladies, of course I have been MIA....that's because I leave in 4 days!!!! So much left to do but I feel like I finally have a handle on it. I am leaving work shortly and going to pick up my dress. Finally. These alterations have been one disaster after another but hopefully it will be done today so I cross the biggest to-do off the list. Wish me luck.

My TA told me that we needed to come in on Wednesday for a Sunday wedding (symbolic). Seemed like way too much time to waste before the wedding, but they were adamant about it. Oh well, I guess I can't do anything about it now. Just bummed because I would have liked to come in on Thursday or Friday for the Sunday wedding and stay for longer after.

 

We are very lucky that my father has given us a honeymoon in Maui for a week. So, we will come home from Mexico for 3 weeks and then head to Maui for a change of scenery and a real deal honeymoon (without guests).

For the legal ceremony here I paid $25 for the license and $70 for the ceremony.  I got married at the county administration building in Prince George's County (right by the bridal shop.)  I think the costs vary by county but it shouldn't be that much difference in price.  You just have to wait 3 days from the time you get the license until you actually get married (and that may vary by county too). 

 

We got to the resort on Thursday around 2 or 3 and we had our meeting on Friday for the Saturday wedding so you getting there on Thursday for a Monday wedding shouldn't be a problem at all.
 





Oh man, this is great to know. I hear Airtran is having a lot of deals right now. Again, we already booked ours, bad planning on our part, but good to know for guests. I was also researching prices for Decemeber. I hear everyone goes for a "site visit" is that discounted from the TA in any way??

Congratulations from me as well. Choosing the right TA for you makes your life a trillion times easier.

I've been so busy with work, I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of small details I should be doing now. Hopefully, this weekend and next week will be better!

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
