the price range i was quoted for the week of 1/29/11 was between $5500-$5700 per couple including airfare. i am hestitant to book the date and not have the prices come down for my guests! i was told that the prices usually come down, but i know this is peak season. anyone think that these prices seems outrageous?

The guest room rate was a big factor in deciding when and where we are going to get married.

I think time of year is especially important in pricing as well - peak season (December thru May) is probably most expensive. Hurricane season is most likely cheapest (June thru November).

We don't expect our guests to stay the entire week- but for the weekend (3 nights) we think up to $200 per night per person is reasonable - and also a great value for this hotel.

 

We have about 11 rooms already booked for our wedding!!! yayyyy

Melly,

 

We just went through the same thing. My FI and I are both from Boston and we have 40-50 of our guest trying to book. I sent emails to the VP and Dir of sales for secrets because I begged for pricing which I can imagine happens all too often. We finally got pricing this week. For 5 days/4 nights out of Boston it is looking around $1430, which is what most of our friends and family were looking for. MY FI and I live in RI now so we are flying out of Providence. If I knew I was going to have so many issues with this resort I would have most likely gone somewhere else so I'm hoping the worst is now over. We are getting married Jan 8th, 2011 and we have a family friend who says this is usually one of the quietest weeks due to the holiday season coming to an end. I can certainly get you in touch with our TA, shes been very helpful and I've been all over about these issues since Jan.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
