I'm right ahead of you!! October 12. I'm super excited but at the same time about to pass out. Airline prices are through the roof to Punta Cana. Any ideas anybody?

3 months to go!! Woo hoo :) they are expensive from here too! Its about $2200 for flight and hotel, a lot of ppl are waiting for a last minute deal but I don't know how much it'll go down.....

      Hi all!

      Hope all is well with everyone and their wedding planning! My fiancĀ© and I are putting together our OOT bags for guests and want to include information/pamphlets/brochures about what activities there to do at the resort and around Punta Cana. Does anyone have any feedback as to what activities are most enjoyable, can accommodate large groups, and what the price ranges are? I am trying to set up an itinerary for our weekend so ANY feedback would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks!

        I just dropped $2000 to pay off my rooms so I'm like bent backwards! LOL. As for the flight...I'm just being a tad more patient....Just a tad! LOL.

Does anyone have any information on such a thing!? We just wanted to be extra special and kind of a thank you to our guests!:)

           

          I opted to do dinner at the Gabi for my guests. There is so much going on in the hotel...I didn't want to pay for anything else. I'm also have a few hours of free cocktails hours so I figured I would do something with that before dinner. I was considering the Cruise...but I haven't looked at what it may cost...and I'm coming down to the wire. I have a call with my planner in a few weeks to close my books - so I can run it past her then. But I tapped out! LOL.

            Just to let you know... if you wait until you get there and go through the restaurant booking in the lobby, you can arrange a reservation for your rehearsal dinner without an extra charge. They give you a set menu with a couple of entree choices and block off a section of the restaurant if there is space. My daughter's wedding was in January 2012 and the resort was full, but we did a seafood dinner in Luna on Thursday and a rehearsal dinner at Terra (steak) on Friday, and the wedding was Saturday.  We had 37 people total and no extra charges.

            Whatever you do it will be fantastic because they do such a great job!

                That's awesome to hear! I really don't want to incur any additional charges. LOL. Will they give me a list roomings for my guests so I can let them know where dinner will be if I do something when I get to the hotel? I would have to find a way to let all my guest know! LOL.

                  Stupid question: I was working on my expenditure xcel sheet and cant remember, does the 500 dollars that we paid to the resort to "reserve" our date go toward our final payment??
