If you already had a wedding in DR, how far in advance did you and your guests book your flights? I'm just so afraid to keep waiting because I'm scared that flights will go up and up and up... Any suggestions will be much appreciated! :)
     

    Hey Anya!! 

     

    Yeah, it's always a bit of a gamble... Do you have a great travel agent? You should check with a few agencies - it's always a better deal when you book an all-inclusive package, especially for a group. November is usually one of the busiest months for weddings here, mostly because the prices are cheaper than around Christmas. Boston is an easy 3.5 hour direct flight, so the tickets shouldn't be expensive. Good luck lady!

        Hello ladies,

         

        I received the  bank info from Mayte. I've never done a wire transfer before and when I went to Bank of America they informed me I would need to open an account with them to be able to do it. Has anyone sent the deposit through their own bank? ( I have Chase)

         

        Thank you

          Thank you, Katya! We got a room block at the hotel, but coudln't tie it in with the flights package because all of our guests are going at different times, so it was hard to coordinate. I think I'll just have to bite the bullett and get the flights now (they are hovering around $600).

            I was able to do it through Bank of America, and I did not have an account with them.... I did it as a transfer. Maybe try another branch? After I made the transfer, I scanned the confirmation receipt they gave me, and emailed it to Mayte, so that there was a record of it via email as well.

              Our guest paid between $450-$800 from NYC area, and $600 was about average

                Does anyone knows if Mayte does the place cards for guests tables and menu?  How does it work if she does them?  Do we send her the guest list, etc?  

                 

                Also, what time does the wedding ceremony usually starts?  thanks so much!

                  Thank you MissyBee,

                   

                  I did as you suggested and made my deposit today.

                   

                  Would any past bride that had fresh flowers be willing to share what the total cost was? I would like a lot of fresh flowers but based on the info Mayte sent me I have no idea what the cost might be.

                   

                  Thanks ladies

                    I have the same question, I am also realizing that more and more people are starting to use Real Touch flowers. I spoke to Mayte about flowers because i really want Peonies and she told me they are difficult to get and quite expensive.

                      Hi ladies- has anyone stayed at Melia? I am trying to finalize the resort and can't decide. We were think Melia but when I Emailed them - its going to cost a lot of money $15/hr/person for just the rehearsal /welcome dinner. Since we are not getting married there. That seems like a lot $$. Just trying to budget everything before we decide. We are not set on staying at Melias but thought it might be convenient since its next to jellyfish. Any recommendations is appreciated! Thanks so much.
