Any 2011 brides?!!

Recommended Posts

My TA has already received (last week) preliminary prices for group bookings for spring 2011. The only thing is though with those prices, even if we book now there is a chance that they might go up and we'd have to pay the difference. The actual prices should be up by May at the latest.

Regarding my previous post, we are suppose to go meet with our TA this week to put down our deposit. In a way, I'm super excited to move things forward and make it "official". But at the same time, I'm worried it might be a little too early to ask our guests to book? I wonder how long they will have to put down their deposit before we lost the rooms the TA has reserved for us...

Maybe your guests will see this as an opportunity to make it more affordable. The longer they have to pay on the trip, the less expensive it always seems. I actually decided against group booking with my TA for the simple fact that some people will want to stay longer than others, and everyone may want to fly out of here or the closest big city depending on their budget. And the TAs from this forum do price matching for any better price you can find, so I feel like I won't be letting guests down by not doing group bookings.

Have you contacted the WC at the resort? I was able to at least reserve my wedding date for $100, even though you cannot book a hotel stay that far in advance.

Congrats to all you 2011 brides:) Im a 2011 bride aswell, and I can't wait for the big day! (I think im going nuts because I don't remember if I posted this before) LOL. Just getting together the STD's, im having them perforated with an rsvp side, that way whom ever replies that they are attending will receive a formal invite (save some money on this part). Has anyone purchased their dress already? Im going to a blow out sale to try my luck. Well ladies have a good night, and happy planning!! :)

    • 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.
