FYI, i was told, to get those group 20% discounts you have to be booked in blocks for your whole group, which is not always the best rate. I was told i dont get 20% off my private reception because I was not booked in a group rate through my travel agent.

I was told the same thing. My TA was pretty close to refusing to book a block of rooms b/c she didn't want to take on the liability for it. Oh well, hope someone gets to use the 20% off!

Hm, that's interesting. We went with the group contract and a block of rooms and it's been a lifesaver! In fact, our TA pushed for us to go this route. It meant our rates were locked in as well as our families, right from the start. No having to worry about getting people to book close to the wedding date--the planning is stressful enough without wondering when/if your guests are going to book!

It's interesting to hear what other people are being told by their TA's.

Original I had a TA but she didn't recommend us to block a group of rooms b/c we would have to put a deposit on the rooms. When we got our room prices they were alot higher then we were told. I was about to change resorts but my dad called Karisma and spoke to a TA and they are giving us 20% off all rooms once we have 5 rooms block. We also get 20% off our private dinner event. This was a huge help. If we didn't get the price down I was going to one of the Dreams which was my second choice. I am so glad it worked out b/c Azul Sensatori was so much nicer.

Michelle, do you know who your Dad spoke with? Can you get us some more information? When did you sign your wedding contract?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
