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!

    • 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!
