How have you got on with all the paperwork?
People booking is another matter! I decided i'm not going to stress over it, I have given people save the dates and also invites so they know where and when and have had over a year to save. I know its a big ask for people to come and I havent pressured anyone into coming. I know a few people that could afford to come but havent booked but it all depends whats important to them. I wont think any less of people that dont come but will have a special bond with people that make the effort. How are you doing with bookings?

YAY! another UK bride! i get so excited if i talk to anyone from the UK marrying at the mp!

what date is your wedding? how many have you got going?

weve got 18 (including me and the H2B) booked so far, and about another 10 as possibles :)

I booked everything direct with the TA so didn't know about the bulk room bookings to get free events, which is a real bummer! but never mind!

i haven't even started on the apolsiled birth certificates! i should look into that! that's all we need right? i have the name of a company, that's on my Things to Do for next week :)

most of my bits are organised, i'm having a beach ceremony, no cocktail reception (because we can't afford it, so just going to one of the bar's) then a private function for the evening. my main problem is centerpieces, because the MP flower prices seem very expensive, but then lugging things from the UK to Mexico isn't going to be easy!!

what are you doing?

are you doing OOT bags?

I honestly cant wait, its going to be so good. Every time I mention Moon Palace people seems to know all about it, its known as one of the top hotels! Our date is 2nd June 2010, we have 12 adults and 2 kids so far but about 10 possibles that are fairly certain to go and then four who said they would but the excuses are starting. I dont mind if they cant come just wish they were honest and told me rather than me finding out from others.bann.gif

We booked with Virgin through our local TA so we didnt know about the bulk deal you get either but we are getting lots of other things free. H2b is catholic so we are having the Immaculate conception chapel. Like you we are also not doing the private cocktail bit.

Think you have to get your passports certified by a solicitor and also birth certifcates sent to FCO for 'approval' (basically rubber stamp them and charge you £62 for the privilage!). then send these onto the TA.

Flowers is a big issue for me too. SOOOOO expensive and you cant use outside vendors. Think I have a solution as I need 2 x BM bouquets as well. Found a website called bloominggorgeous.net. going to get real touch flowers for me and the bridesmaids (fraction of the price and you can keep them forever) and then ask if I can use my free bouquet flowers as a table piece instead of a bouquet... hope they will let me.

I'm not going to do OOT bags but will get really nice favours for the guests. Are you doing them?

    • 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. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
