ohh so they give you the speakers free for the cermony and cocktail hour? I suppose the $200 charge just covers the reception time then....

I would recommend asking them via e-mail and having them confirm that so you can bring a copy with you in case they give you a hard time. Just by reading the threads for the 4 resorts I'm considering, it seems sometimes they charge, sometimes they don't for a lot of the "extras". So best to avoid headache by having proof with you. wink.gif

Hey! I have kind of an odd question..did any of you go through a travel agent (TA) while booking your wedding? I have a TA that we deal with for all of our vacations but he is not giving us a better deal than the resort itself..Ana sent me an email with a group deal and it was better than my TA. What did you guys all do to get the best deal?

I booked myself through a place online. cheap caribbean. I'm not sure what kind of deal you are looking at but these prices are great. If you want to send me your email address I can give you more info.

Can anyone tell me the rates they were quoted by either working with the resort directly or through their travel agent? We are planning a Jan 2011 wedding and want to know if the prices we've been quoted are fair/reasonable. Also, are you getting package deals with flights, or no?

 

Last year we vacationed for 7 days/8 nights in December for $1250 per person with flight from CheapCaribbean.com--they don't seem to have group rates though and I was quoted much a much higher rate ($165 pppn) by the resort.

 

We are planning for a group of 25-40 ppl.

 

I would appreciate any feedback, thanks !!

Bride2Be2011: Our travel agent is booking all of our guests through FunJet vacations. My FI & I booked our vacation through Vacations to Go & saved a HUGE amount over the rates Excellence listed.

OMG! We are back from the best 2 weeks of my life! Brides to be...you have nothing to worry about, everything was beyond my expectations and both Ana and Isyuney made my day absolutely a dream. I couldn't have asked for anything more and they went above and beyond to make it perfect. I brought alot of things down with me...centerpieces, program fans, escort cards, favors ect and Isyuney put it all together beautifully and as I pictured it. I love putting my little touches on things but if thats not your thing, then don't push it. The wedding would have been just as beautiful without my finishing touches. I am working on my review with pictures to follow so stay posted...just know your day will be amazing!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
