I think because i'm a uk bride its different - we dont have a central office (i think US have a miami office or something??) I havent even got a contract! I requested the catholic package right at the beginning. I was told I would be contacted by a WC three months before so in the meantime I had my paperwork sorted and signed and did my catholic marriage classes, get my dress etc. the three month time came and went so I decided to email maribel at MP for some info on flowers. she was very helpful and got back within 2 days. I was then assigned Cristina. I sent her an email with some standard questions (meal options, hair/makeup costs) it took her 5 weeks to email me a response and she included the package options. This was the first time I had seen the immaculate package option details so obv I freaked when I read the small print!! At no point was I told it wasnt legal! RTFM.gif

I emailed Cristina and maribel sunday morning and had a response back she doesnt think its a problem to have both a civil ceremony first to get the legal stuff done then have the priest take over and do the blessing. I have emailed the priest so hopefully he can clear things up, I dread to think how much they are going to charge me thou!!

Then we have people that say they are coming, then say no, then say yes.... and it is totally frustrating.

I am trying to be open about it, but seriously if I was invited to a DW I would figure out the price, budget.. save..and either book or not.

I have so much going on right now, and dealing with our guests is driving me insane. We are busy with our Design Company, which is great but has delayed OUR invites and are now going out tom. They should have been out the end of March, which is only a few weeks behind, but still!!

Anyway, sorry I vented, but I read all your posts and needed to spill my thoughts as well.

I am just thankful I have this forum! Without you girls, and the previous brides I don't think I would have gotten this far in planning!!
Thanks
Vent away!! Same here if someone asked me to a destination wedding I would look at prices, see if I could get time off and then decide yes or no. either they can afford it or they cant, just be honest! I love how some people avoid you like the plague when you need a answer. Its quite funny really to watch them squirm when you know they arent coming just havent got the balls to tell you! I just need to know so I can organise favours, name place cards etc. One of our guests wanted to wait and see if the prices went down... they havent they have gone up and now hes not happy but its really not my problem. I have enough stress thanks :)

Jodimichelle: my FI works for Continental. The summer airfare price wars usually start in May. Also try www.airfarewatchdog.com; this is a cool site that will send you email alerts with airfares. You can chose how often you want to receive them and you specify if you'd like alerts from a certain city, to a certain city, or city-to-city. Additionally, let your guest who don't use this site know that the best time to shop plane tickets is Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
I thought I thanked you. Sorry.. Thank you so much for this info. I passed it along to some of my friends!!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • 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.
