Paradise Bound

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

My name is Lucy, FI is René and we hail from the Big Apple, NYC. We are in the planning stages but at warp speed. We have chosen the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana, DR; just waiting to hear if the date we have chosen, June 26, 2010 is available.

 

We planned on a big to-do but due to my illness (ESRF) finances are tight - bright idea Destination Wedding. I'd appreciate any advice in all aspects of planning from future brides, past brides who have gone this route. I'm using DestinationWeddings.com.

 

Thanks and congrats to all!

 

Lucy & René

Be careful working with DestinationWeddings.com. A few brides have had great things to say - but I thought they were horrible and had to fire my lady after a few weeks. BUT, good luck with your planning. You'll find a ton of great stuff here in the forums.

Congratulations and Welcome! I am also using destinationweddings.com and LOVE them! My coordinator has been so helpful! We are getting married at Paradisus Punta Cana on June 24, 2010 so we will probably be there at the same time! Happy planning, let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

Thank you all for the kind words. At destinationweddings, my coordinator is Barbara. She's so cool, friendly and helpful. As of yet we are still waiting for word from WC at Majestic. As soon as I get details, I'll post.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
