    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.

        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 went through a TA and got a pretty good deal. If you can get a better rate from the resort directly I say go for it!

            We used a TA who price matched the hotel.

              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!
