excited about cabos...

Recommended Posts

hello,

 

my name is jessica and my fiance and i are planning to get married on february 2, 2007 at casa del mar in los cabos. so happy to see that natasha recently got married there! it's a little unnerving booking everything online. i have spoken to claudia and she does seem very helpful and responsive.

 

feb is considered high season so the blocked room rates are higher, i hear comments about condos and villas, but has anyone organized group travel packages from sources like expedia or orbitz that include airfare and hotel for their wedding party and guests?

 

nice to meet you fellow destination wedding brides, looking forward to exchanging thoughts...

Hey,

Welcome!

I tried to discourage our guests from booking through expedia or orbitz for our wedding. Hotels give these bookings a lower priority, so for high season, if the hotel is overbooked, who do you think they'll bump?

Hopefully Tammy will read this soon... she's a travel agent that specializes in dest. weddings.... (Tammy, not TammyM that replied above.) She can probably help you and your guests out.

Let us know if you need anything else!

Welcome Jes!

 

Personally, I would avoid trying to arrange travel packages for your whole group thru Expedia or Orbitz. The reason I say this is that generally any travel arrangements made through these sites are very restrictive - so if people need to alter their plans after travel has been booked, they will not have much luck doing so without stiff penalties. My 2 cents :)

Welcome!

 

I'd recommend looking into renting condos at Casa del Mar for some of your guests. They are often cheaper than the hotel rooms, and right there on the same grounds. I'll try to find some links for you.

 

Our fellow bride Ylan got married there last weekend; I'm sure she'll be back to post a review soon -- and I know she ended up renting condos and booking hotel rooms both

hey there,

 

it is def. easier to do a room block than to try to scramble to get rooms via expedia/orbitz...that way you have the security in knowing the x amount of rooms will be set aside for your guests. cabo is a popular destination so it is not uncommon for hotels to book out months in advance. we have had brides find out their hotel was booked and have to scramble to find rooms for their guests at the last minute...def. not what you want to do the month before your wedding.

 

let me know if you need any help.

    • 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!
