July Bride-to-be... somewhere!

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm Linette, bride-to-be on July 11th... somewhere. :)

 

We're currently booked at Moon Palace in Cancun/Riviera Maya. Our family and friends were all due to book their trip this week when news broke out over the swine flu and all that motivation came to a screeching halt.

 

Though I personally believe this will be well under control come July, we have many children and elderly guests in our immediate family who may not attend if we keep the wedding in Mexico.

 

Since no one has officially booked yet, I'm looking at other alternatives. Our wedding is about 9 weeks away and its almost like starting from scratch. I'm trying not to stress too much about it and just finding a solution. So, I'll keep you posted as to any changes... whether we keep it close to home, or, venture off to another destination.

 

I also wanted to mention that I've been a silent participant on the forum and finally decided to jump in this week. I'd like to thank you all for sharing stories, offering support and solutions! Many have insipired me in my planning. I hope to return the favor :).

Hey Linette,

Welcome to the forum. I'm also a Mexican July bride. Personally, I'm just waiting out this flu situation. IMO there's a very good chance this will all settle down by then and the only worry then will be how to keep from sweating to death in that wedding dress on the beautiful beach :)

    • 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!!
