Hi!  November 8, 2014 DR bride!  Question...I noticed a new promotion on the DR site, complimentary cocktail welcome reception for up to 50 people if you book your destination wedding by February, 2014.  This is awesome because we were going to pay for a welcome reception.  Do you know if they grandfather you in to new promotions?  We booked our destination wedding in September 2014.  I love the resort, but we're already at 40 booked rooms, and I just wished they offered more incentives for large groups like some of the other resorts.

    Oh no :( are you going through the resort directly or a TA? My TA is looking into for me. She said it shouldn't be a problem, but will let me know after she speaks to her contact. I'll certainly post the outcome because I'm going to have a VeRY hard time accepting that given the size of our party. That's a pretty nice savings for us because we were planning for a Welcome Reception.

      I'll certainly keep you posted on my outcome.

      Hi!
       
      I've seen some files that previous brides have posted for others to use as a template. I was trying to save one but it wouldn't allow me to. Any recommedations or help?

      I'm new to all this as well. I've asked around about this and found some threads. What my fiance and I decided to do was to pay a friend's travel expense (planning to go to wedding already; who's also a photographer) and have him there to photograph the wedding ceremony and reception. Brides have told me I wouldn't have to pay the vendor fee since it will be a friend not a vendor from mexico.

      This is great to know. So if we bring someone as a guest, that's not from the area, we can get around the fee? This is great to know!!!

      Sure, our URL is www.damonandmesha2014.com.  I really wanted it to be the go to portal for our guests. I used WeddingWire to host because their technology is mobile responsive and I found more templates that I liked there.  I also purchased a vanity URL for about $12/year to make it easier for guests to remember the site.  Good luck!


      Anyone working with a lighting company (for reception) in Cancun?  Any recommendations?
