Ifyou dont mind me asking why did you have to get money in so soon? I am being told that Rates for my Resort arent out yet and most likely wont be out till May.

Hey Outdoor Girl 1010 - The week of my wedding is not flexible so as soon as the Riu came out with you being able to book your date of the wedding for 2010. I had my travel agent look into prices....the prices she came back with are a little more than I expected but I don’t really have an option of when I can go (March 15-20 is the only week people from our families can go).

 

So how it worked was the price they gave us was the absolute highest price that we are going to pay - and when prices come out in May/June if they are lower then we get the lower price. The deposits of $200.00 per person were really to guarantee you are going – but realistically anyone can book at any time they are just not “guaranteed” to get a seat (as there are very limited seats out of the city I live in). Basically right now our parents, and close family members have booked – I suspect more of a pick up on bookings when the actual prices and schedules come out.

 

I hope you can understand this….sometimes it is hard to explain…. if not let me know and I will try again...

 

Cheers

Marcie

Hi Girls!!

Would anyone be interested in sharing a photographer for their wedding in March 2010, preferably March 17 - March 31. I am getting married March 28 2010 and planning on booking Michael Steingard. Not sure if anyone is familiar with Phil Steingard but he is a big wedding photographer in the DR and Michael is his nephew and his pictures are just beautiful. His website is MICHAEL STEINGARD

If we can get a few brides around that time frame he will be able to cut us all a really good deal so let me know!!
