Canadiangirl - there are toooons of threads on OOT bags on the site.  There is a search function at the top that will help you find ANYTHING you are looking for!!  I think your information doesnt show up until you are more active, I am also a new member so I am probably not much help!! Congrats on the setting the date and welcome to BDW!!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some advice on how to get this process started.  My fiancee and I are pretty flexible on dates, but we're thinking of getting married somewhere in Riviera Maya in Jan/Feb/March 2012.  I'm just getting going on this, so I was wondering how everyone else has done things.  I think since we are flexible on dates, it makes sense to pick a resort and take whatever date is available. Has anyone else gone this route?  Will a travel agent contact the resort to book the wedding date?  Or is that something I should do on my own?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Liane

Hi lianee!

 

Welcome! I am by no means an expert but I will share what I have learned and what we have decided to do!  We could not decide on a resort for the life of us I would say that this is the #1 thing to do! Deciding on a resort takes all those other options off the table, each resort offers different wedding options and having all those different things to consider just made it way to hard.

 

Once you have decided on a resort get in touch with them.  We were also flexible on dates but knew we wanted to be in February 2012 (or around there).  I got some great advice and that was to book your wedding date before you book your trip! Some places are already booked! for weeks straight and it would be absolutely awful if you booked your trip and couldn't get a date!!  

 

We decided to talk to a travel agent, get some quotes and that way we could narrow down what dates we were looking at.  I have already been back and fourth 3 times with the WC at the resort because that dates I have suggested are booked!

 

Once we secure a date we will book our trip and send out our invites.  From what I have learned we are a little behind in the process! Since you are looking at getting married around the same time I would definitely suggest getting your resort picked so you can confirm a date!!

 

Hope this helps and if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!!!

 

 

CONGRATS :)

hey lianee......

I dont know if this will help you or not, but this is what we did. We have a travel agent SELLOFFVACATIONS who not only found us a great price, but who is now invited to the wedding due the fact the women spends hours on the phone with me whenever I need her lol....

 

once we put our money down with her she e-mailed the resort and sent all the info to me via e-mail. The next day I phoned the resort and booked our date with them. They sent me the days that were available for the wedding...most resorts are really great with the info....but because im a control freak, I just call them..

 

if your concerned about the date you want for the wedding..what I would do is call the resort and get them to hold the slot, they will hold for 2 weeks before you have to put deposit. After you can contact a travel agent. I hope this helps..and doesnt sound like im rambling Ive been doing invites since 6am LOL LOL

    • 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.
