Hi Jen,

 

Im pretty sure we are going with Sandos Playacar Beach Resort bc we have been told it has the best beach in Playa Del Carmen and they have really good wedding rates. A few other brides went down and did some site visits and found Sandos the most reasonable and the best value for any add-ons. The dont seem to nickel and dime you on everything. Its not set in stone for us, but its my main choice right now. We are trying to keep the costs down as we are having a very small informal wedding and we dont want our guests paying more then $1800 per person. Sandos falls right in that category. I thought of the RIU too, but honestly I havent really looked into it all the much yet. I probably will in the next 6 months when we really have to decide. We do know that we will be going to the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort for our honeymoon, well atleast thats the plan. I feel like I change my mind more often then I change my socks...lol

Where are you in Calgary? We just moved outside of calgary last winter - do you know where Didsbury is?

thanks and congrats to you too. i will definalty let you know if i need anything!!! we are also looking at playa del carmen cause we met at the iberostar tucan there about 5 years ago. we just heard a few things about that resort like there not very good with negotiating with big group and they only offer wedding packages for up to 10 people and they make you pay for every additional person. we've heard really good things about the RUI and there discounts they give.. so that's what i'm focusing on right now!!!!

have you figured out a resort yethuh.gif

hey jennybell,

sorry i haven't gotten back sooner but i'm a FA for westjet so i'm on the road alot!!! i live about 2 mins from downtown in the nw. not really sure where you live but i as my fi and he knows where it is!!!
i am going to have to look at that Sando's resort!!! next week i'm going to ontario to visit my fam and try on bridesmaids dresses for my friend who is getting married next year so i thought i might go see some travel agents i know there just to get an idea.
i think for our honeymoon were going to go to an adults only and i think we like one of the karisma hotels. still not sure but we don't want any kids around and my fi said he will pay whatever for our honeymoon but just for the wedding we are trying to put a buget on it for our guests.
when i get some info on the rui's i will let you know!!!

    • 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!
