Carly, I'm not sure!! I guess I need to look into that! haha!

Welcome Maybride! Your big day is coming up soon!!

 

Here are some questions and answers from Erika from the other day...I thought some of you may be interested! Is the Baja California restaurant on the resort?

 

 

Hi Erika,

 

Just a few more questions that popped into my brain :)

 

1) When do you need to have the final number of guests?

 

Like one week before you arrive to Cabo

 

2) Is the ceremony in Spanish or English? I have heard that it may be in Spanish and I was wondering who translates it into English?

 

if you are having a legal ceremony this one is at Spanish and I make the transduction to English if you have a simbolic ceremony that one is on English

 

3) We arrive on September 21 and the wedding is on the 25th, on what day do you think will we be meeting with you to discuss details? We are trying to arrange a couple off-resort excursions (horseback riding, zip lining) and we would like to book them soon but we do not want it to interfere withour meeting with you :)

 

Thi9s can vbe the next they of your arrival at 9:00 am

 

4) Did the photographer respond if 7:30pm-8:30pm will be ok for our hour of photography?

 

I am still waitting for the response

 

5) Can wedding rehearsals be arranged the night before? How long does it take and what happens?

this rehersal at the beach took around 10 minutes and I explain were is the ceremony how to acomodate and if it is for dinner this can be at the Baja California restaurant and you can check with your guest what you need. For a rehersal in a speciality restaurant this one can only be up to 10 people and the services at the restaurantas is around 2 hours.

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to our questions. We are under 6 months away and getting very excited!!

 

Sincerely,

Lisa Garner

Hi Ladies! I would love some help from you guys! I am getting married May 21st 2009, and have not been contacted by Erika. I see here that some have been contacted months and months out. I am only 5 weeks away and have not heard a word. We are having an extremely small wedding, 10 guests. I assume that is why she has not contacted me, but starting to worry. It's not a legal ceremony, our ceremony is at 6pm and requested dinner at the steak house following. But that has not been confirmed. Anyway, any thoughts would be wonderful!!!

 

Thanks,

Lisa

Have you tried calling the resort? I started emailing her about 8 months prior and never heard back until I called. Once that first contact has been made everything will be ok, but if i were you...I would call as soon as possible! Good luck!

She never contacted us, I contacted her actually. And she has always been prompt about returning my emails...have you been emailing her? If you haven't yet then i would asap: weddings.loscabos01@riu.com And if she doesn't respond within a day or so then I would call her. Everything will fall into place though, I'm sure! Good luck!

Lisa, the Baja California is the buffet. Thats the restraunt that Erika is refering to.

 

Goosie52 -Lisa, I would email her. I never had to call her. She always responded to my emails. I think her one day off a week is Tuesday.

Thank you! I emailed Paola in Sales, and she contacted Erika. Apparently, Sales confirmed my package, but never sent it to Erika. But everything is still the same!! Beach at 6, Steakhouse at 745!!!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • 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
