I'm glad to hear it's all working out Josie!

 

I just talked to my TA and I'm pretty excited! She just told me that if we have 40 people book, Dave and I will get our flight and stay at the RIU for free. I guess there is some kind of rule where every 21st person goes for free. I'm happy about it, but I'm surprised I haven't heard about it from this site before now. I seem to be one step ahead of her on everything because of this forum. Is it too good to be true? Did anyone get a similar deal? I just don't want to re-evaluate our budget and have this deal fall through.

That is great news Chloe! We asked our TA if there were any perks for booking our wedding, but she said no. We will be having around 30 people there. We just went ahead and booked everything ourselves. Tyler's parents are paying for our trip and we are staying in the two story suite. We are so excited.

I have heard of this happening before, that is why I asked our TA, so I wouldn't worry about that. Make sure to ask what type of room you will have (if it matters to y'all).

Chloe- Wow, I am so jealous! That is awesome news for you!!!! Our travel agent also said there weren't any group deals available! Is it a deal offered through your TA's agency, or the RIU itself?...if it's the RIU I'll want to call there because I know we'll have at least 40 people!!

 

Lucky for me, My parents are paying for everything and like TylersGirl - My mom booked us the 2 story suite for our wedding night, and the night after! So Desiree, take lots of pics for me and have a GREAT time!

This is from an email she sent me this morning ...

 

The 21st rule. If you have 21 full paying people in a group weather they are staying 4 nights or 7 nights they are under the same group.

There for you would fly and stay free. You just pay the tax. I would have to have 10 rooms under our agency to get this. If you have

40 people (children not included) then you will both go free. I just had that happen at the same resort your going to.

 

I'll send her an email and ask if it's just through her or what the deal is and I'll let you know. She gets back to me pretty quickly, so it shouldn't be too long.

Ok, so my TA emailed me back and said that the offer is a combination of what the tour operator she works with offers and also the agency she works for. She also said that we won't know exactly what our deal will be until final payments are recieved by everyone in our group. I'm not sure who the tour operator she works with is though. Apple Vacations? She did say that she can work with anyone from anywhere though, so if some of the girls who aren't too far along in their planning want to use her, just let me know and I can pass along her info.

hi guys,

josie i hope you get sorted.its a good thing that one of the girls said even though i understand that you would rather do it yourself try and split the 200 between a couple of you it should make it easier.

 

i am on count down for monday when msbettyb comes back i just want to hear the general review of the resort.

 

tylersgirl,i can understand that they have people who are getting married earlier to sort out first but it would,nt hurt for them to supply you with a list or pictures.it would be great if you could keep us posted on what they say thanks alot.

 

i have been dress shopping today.i have picked 2 and am going back next week to decide.one is pretty and simple and practical and the other is a beautiful beaded one which is more of a wedding dress.i am torn.tomorrow i will try and download the pics from my camera but they not that clear.

    • 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.
