      Are the quotes for a deluxe room, or honeymoon suite/junior suite? Thru cheapcaribbean.com I found 1450 for 6 nights, direct flight thru Newark-continental airline-deluxe room, transportation back & forth included. I found them the cheapest & according to my wedding coordinator, they have never experienced problems with them. There's also a cheapcaribbean rep on site (Dreams Punta Cana resort) Check it out.
      Good Luck.

          Karenk77..$1450 was for 1 adult, but w/2 kids included, the total was 2600.00(deluxe room) and I paid $3350.00 for a honeymoon suite for 2 adults-direct flight from Newark, transfer to & from the resort, 6 nights... They also price match. For example, Apple was quoting me less for the deluxe room (tricky w/kids) so they matched it.

              i would not try to book the whole vaca on my own because if for any reason a flight gets canceled or something goes wrong it is really great to have a person who is familiar with your travel arrangements as well as your guests. when booking with a group of people you do get a group rate for your stay and airfare also. at least thats what my ta told me and than you can also end up with depending on how many rooms you book a free upgrade. it all depends on how large your party will be. i am happy with my ta , she has been great to work with, has had a bw in jamaica and has done several dw's also. i don't mind sharing if you need the help just pm me. good luck with all of this. i know its difficult to put an exspense on your guests but so what!!! they prob will vaca anyway during the year at some point, would have spent alot of money on your wedding anyway, and now at least they get a vaca out of it with friends/ fam that prob would never have thought or oraganzied a trip together anyway! once you get past this part its so much easier trust me!!!! good luck!!! hope this helps!")

                  Have you contacted any of the TA's from the forum? I am using TA Dina (she's in NJ) and her rates are better than orbitz and everywhere else i have looked. I was thinking about using orbtiz but have heard too many horror stories to leaving my wedding up to orbitz.
