He misunderstood what i wanted and quote me almost 2,000.  When I told him I just wanted the images, he said I should go through Cecelia and she would work that out. What about you?

It's my understanding the resort provides transportation to and from the airport. We booked our trip and our guests land packages through a travel agent (our guests booked air travel on their own). The travel agent told us there was no extra cost for airport transfers unless you want a private transfer. However, you may want to keep in mind and tell your guests too that on departure the transfer is probably going to be 3 - 4 hours before your flight. So if you have a 10 am flight departing from Cancun, be prepared to catch the shuttle anytime between 5 am - 7 am from the hotel. Again this information is coming from our travel agent.

 

If you're not using a travel agent you may want to get your guests itinerary's for when they're arriving and departing from the airport and send it to Cecelia and see if she can arrange the transfers. We're just sending all flight info to our travel agent and she is coordinating that info with SMB.

 

Hope that helps!

We provided transportation for our guests who flew with us. We used Cancun Transfers. We had a private van for seven of us. It was only $105 round trip for everyone. From what I believe the transportation that is included is not private, which means you could possibly stop at many resorts on your way to SMB. This can add significant time to your drive. The cost of private transportation is worth it to us. We have always arranged private transportation for each of our trips to Mexico.

Hey Ladies! I am in boston but I am using a client of mine, and amazing travel agent Gina Tasio from Travel Emporium in New Jersey. She is awesome and she is the one that set me up with secrets to begin with! We couldn't have done it without her!

Those look great! How many people did you have? I think we will have around 60 people. I would love to know all the things you planned that were part of the package and extra.  Great centerpieces!

    • 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!!
