I am using a TA that I absolutley LOVE!!  Her name is Kim Grammer and her email is kim@i-travelagent.com   She operates not only as a TA, but also as a coordinator.  She has been so helpful in getting the resort to answer my questions and she has worked thru the hurdles I have met in dealing with the peole at DRC.   I would highly recommend using a TA to book your wedding beacuse they negotiate your group room rate.  I would definelty choose Kim again to work with.

Bridesmaid lunch - If Oceana is open that day that would be nice, but seaside grill is open for lunch as well.  The only thing is those two places are outside so if you're worried about getting hot or sweating...you might want to go with World Cafe since that's inside and air conditioned.

 

For our farewell brunch we're doing it in the world cafe - we're going to speak to the manager a few days in advance and just ask them to block off a corner for our group.  That way people can come down for breakfast whenever they want between 9 and 11 you know?

We used a TA as well - for a couple reasons...we found the group rate through the hotel was not nearly as good as what our guests could get online and our TA does pricematches so you can book today and 3 months before the wedding if specials come out, she rebooks you.  So over half our guests basically got a tropical view room for $100 per person per night.  Also, we have older guests who don't feel comfortable booking hotels online or flights so we wanted them to have a contact to handle all that.

 

And of course, same as the other girls, my TA is great about getting in contact with the coordinators.

 

Although I will tell you that Gabriela takes about 2-3 days to respond to my emails so I'm much happier!

    • 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?
