it is encouraging to see that ticket prices were this cheap at some point in the year...because my guests are flipping out with the 500 dollar prices for round trip being quoted right now...

Looks like they have flights out of NJ for $281 through Continental right now. I used Expedia Alert (you can download it from their site) on my computer to alert me when rates changed (up and down). I also went to the individual airlines themselves to see what their prices were when air went down. :)

Thanks for this Alison and congrats.  Your dress is stunning.  I love the setup for your reception.  I think I'm going with something very similar.  Did you order the chairs through Deco or are they included as part of MP's setup?  Odd question I know, but I've saw a price quote from Deco with chairs included.

It looked amazing and was completely worth it.  My only complaint was that one string of lanterns did not stay lit. In fact, I don't know if they were ever lit. 

 

We did pay $180 for alter flowers during the wedding.  They then moved them to our cocktail hour (Tucan Gazebo) and then go the wedding reception by our cake table and guestbook. 

 

Our wedding was a catholic wedding in the Immaculate Conception Chapel, beautiful.  Father Benito was interesting...

 

As for pictures try this link http://www2.snapfish.com/snapfish/roommapping/groupname=alieandpaulswedding/groupid=54641027/groupownerid=3265834027/  with the code word: wedding  This does have pictures of the entire week from guests so it's a lot go to through. I recommend Paul Gass's photos.  He was a friend there with a great camera and took a lot of wedding.  I will try and get mine up today but neither I nor the groom took pictures during the wedding. I think one of the groomsman had the camera.

Thanks for this info.  I'm having the same problem.  Flights out of PHL have been staying right around $450 - 500.  I was hoping to get a better deal.

Be careful when booking with AirTran.  Everyone I know who booked through Airtran (including me and groom) had their flights cancelled or changed a few months later and the new flight times available were horrible.  We would have either had to stay an extra 2 days past our scheduled stay (and they weren't paying for the stay) or we would have had to leave the morning following the wedding.  Everyone I know who booked with them ended up getting refunds and flying with another carrier.  However if you are flying out of  LAX you might have a better chance than Columbus OH.

I have heard a lot of people recommended using a company...I think Decco something?  Does anyone have any suggestions on getting a hold of them?  I sent an email and haven't heard anything back.  I was wondering if I needed to go through the WC.

    • 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.
