no fireworks for us, we just couldn't justify the cost. we lucked out though, on our wedding day the International Fireworks Show or something was there so they were shooting a TON off from PV, from Caletas they were just in the distance but hey I got my fireworks! ;) Anyways, it just wasn't worth the cost IMO.

 

oooh when is your wedding? I hope prices do drop for you!

I had a couple of folks book on Mexicana air for our November 3, 2010 wedding and they too are waiting for prices to drop.  Some are looking at paying up to triple what they had paid on Mexicana Air. 

 

I've finalized everything with Kelley, OTHER THAN MUSIC.  Man, that's the worst part.  I'm just going to bring an Ipod, but I dont know what music to have for the wedding.  I've heard so many options, I think I'm going crazy. 

 

Everything else has been a complete breeze.  Kelley and I talk at least once a week.  If it's not about the wedding, it's about something (ha).  She's a trooper.

I'm still working on booking Las Caletas, for a wedding the last week of May or 1st week of June. I really hope the hotel and venue will get confirmed soon. I have exactly 9 months to plan.

Thanks nessa!  And yes, Kelley has been great even in the very, very beginning of the planning stages. :)

 

Now that I'm moving forward with planning, wanted to ask everyone's opinion on how they booked hotel.  Did you yourself negotiate a group rate with a hotel directly, or did you use a travel agent to do the heavy lifting? 

We'll be having a group of about 60 people and are looking for an all-inclusive.  We are more of the party type of group vs a relaxed group.  I really want the hotel to allow 4 adults in 1 room so some people in our group can have the option of sharing.

(I may have missed a similar post on this thread and I apologize if I am repeating the question)

 

Can anyone give any tips on hotel negotiations?

 

Also, did anyone do a group discount code when booking flights? 

 

Thanks!

Alison

I worked in hotel industry for years and if you want the travel arrangements to be organized, I would suggest using a travel agency. I am using one for my wedding party.

 

I have stayed at only 2 All inclusive hotels in Mexico and both times there were only 2 of us sharing the rooms. The price difference to have a 3rd or 4th person is not really a lot, about $5 per night so I would think the guests would rather have their own bed for $5 more.

 

Good luck on your hotel search

I would have someone set it up for you and help you. You do not want to take on the burden of figuring all that out yourself, or have people calling you trying to get you to arrange their accomodations. Plus, they might find discounts that you would not on your own. My WC in the US is named Precious (really, it is), so when people ask about booking, I say, "oh just call Precious!" :) If you get a group rate, depending on the number of "nights" your party books (2 rooms x 3 nights= 6 room nights), the bride and groom get upgrades and perks.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
