Congrats everyone!! We just all need to believe the prices will drop haha!! It's still really early and we have time. At least thats what I'm telling myself. Although I have freaked out a couple times!! Rates just started coming out so there is plenty of time for sales!! I knew Easter was in April, but never thought it would effect prices this much!

 

Our luggage tag save the dates are done and ready to be mailed. We're doing boarding pass invites, prob done by stylish scribe. We're going to wait on the invites though until we hear more about the prices. Our TA said to wait a few weeks to see what happens!!

The prices for early April (leaving on Easter Sunday actually) in 2007 were a little cheaper than what I am finding now. But what I've seen so far is pretty close to what we all paid to go last June. I figure if people paid it just for a vacation and not my wedding... maybe they will pay it for a vacation and a purpose! We will have to see. I'm crossing my fingers on prices going down too though so more people can try to make it.

From what I've found so far (from Canada) is that the week of Apr 3-10 (my wedding week) is about $200 more than the week of April 10th. I was also told the week after that is even cheaper. Not sure about later in the month though.

 

I am really struggling with the decision to book a group rate now or wait it out. The prices are higher than I'd like ($1960). I would really rather send the TA info with my STD's, and I don't want to wait to long to do that. Fortunately, the best rate I've been able to get has a one time price adjustment. On the con side, they will only price match within the same tour operator (Sunquest), which limits our options, esp because their original quote was not competitive at all (they price matched another tour operator so we could get the price adjustment).

 

Decisions, decisions...

Hi - I am an April, 2011 bride also. Still stressing over the exact place. I think we are almost positive on Beaches Turks & Caicos on the 14th. I didn't think it would be this difficult to just make a decision on the location!!! I just want everything to be perfect.

I don't think that's too early--That's when I was planning on sending my invites out--better too early than too late!

My finance is mailing our save the dates today! I was thinking a little earlier than Jan for the invites too. Maybe in the Fall. I want to give my guests as much time as possible, especially since prices are higher than expected. You can always make the RSVP later, but at least they'll have the invites!

    • 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.
