April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm an April bride also! April 8 at Aventura Spa Palace. I dont have very much done. I do have the resort and airfare booked so that is one major thing done yay! I am having major problems deciding on a dress and shoes. I'm hoping to knock out the dress this wknd and I think I will feel a lot better once that is done. Good luck everyone!

I have one more thing done now...  we put the deposit down on our resort (for our stay)!  We are waiting until after the summer to see what happens with the airfare, as we've heard it's suppose to go down! 

 

I'm kind of at a standstill, I'm not really sure where to go from here!

My parents are officially dressed and ready!!!  Too bad not much else is done...  Going to work on a wedding website and invites this weekend.  

 

How are you guys coordinating your group rates with guests?  I know my TA can only secure rates for a week and a half or so.  I don't know how it's going to work after that, if she'll have to get a new quote, and then will I have to coordinate another group of 10 to get the rate?  Also, does anyone have any recommendation on Travel Agents?  The one I'm using seems quite good, but just thought I'd check with you all.  (Canadian companies only)

 

How did you guys ask your bridal party to be a part of your wedding?  I was hoping to come up with something creative but I'm dry for ideas.

Hi Christina,

 

I am getting married April 6th in the Mayan Riviera and I am also from the lower mainland. I have tried a few travel agents with the whole group rate thing and what I have recieved so far hasn't been all that great. The prices are pretty much the same as if we all booked individually. I have recently contacted another company (who are canadian and specialize in destination weddings) and so far they seem pretty promising and they will be providing me with quotes on Monday. I can share their contact info with you if you wish....

For group rates we found that because a lot of our guests are doing different time lengths, we couldn't get with the group rate really.  Our TA said that it just didn't make sense because it doesn't offer people the options we want them to have...  I guess the group rates are really going to depend on if all of your guests plan on the staying for the same length of time. 

 

I can't help with TA's...  I'm in the US...  We are using BDW TA Wendy, who has been wonderful thus far, but she's in the US...

I am using TA Jill from the forum, she is great also. Booking ASAP, but we are not doing group rates for the reason that keeps coming up. Everyone seems to be going different lengths of time and I don't want to be responsible for taking care of everyone's trip (as I was for our last big trip down there in summer 2009). It's my wedding, so I don't want any added stress. To each his own and they just have to let me know if they book through someone besides my TA.

 

I will be meeting with my aunt who is a decorator at receptions and kind of takes care of everything for that. Also going to have her help me come up with some sort of menu. Started on DIY passport invites, hoping to get those mailed out in September. STDs were mailed back in May and people are wanting more details... I have gotten so many facebook messages and I ask them to just wait another month.

 

Dress is purchased (since October 2009) and still fits, yay!  Mainly I need to get the invitations out, book the trip, and it's smooth sailing for awhile. It's FINALLY feeling like I have deadlines and that it is getting close. woot.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
