i am originally from the Dominican Republic and  what im opting for is flying to either the Santo Domingo (SDQ) or La Romana (LRM) and getting shuttle service for my guests to Samana  its about 1hr and 20 min drive,you can talk to the resort or your travel agent and see what they might have to offer i know hotels usually offer shuttles to and from the airport for about $25 per passenger RT.

 im going to look in to private buses since my party is of 30 or so guest it might be cheaper will keep you posted if you'd like.

 

Another good idea!

Please keep me posted!  I love this resort but right now it seems too impractical for my wedding guests.  May be a great spot for a honeymoon though woot.gif

I am starting to get a little frustrated.

We were able to put deposits on booking for the week we want with Air Canada, but now I am trying to secure the DATE I want with the resort. And, of course, I am not hearing anything back.

 

I know they get busy, and I know I shouldn't be impatient. I just really want to get the exact date figured out so I can book the photographer. After that, I am okay.

 

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Hello brides :)

 

I see a few of you are looking to get married in 2013. I am looking at picking a date between January and March 2013 sometime. I am still narrowing down resorts, but this is a top pick. Being from British Columbia I am also concerned about the lay over in Toronto. I am also concerned about the cost...but the wedding package seems reasonable compared to other resorts I have looked into. I love hearing everyone's discussion. Keep it coming.

Hi Peach,

 

Yes it takes her a while to respond back! In every review i've read everyone has had the same experience so i didn't worry about it. What i did was wait for her to confirm the date before i booked anything with Air Canada. I've heard some people who were in a rush actually called the hotel and asked for the wedding coordinator and that seemed to work.

Does anyone have any information packages provide by the resort that they would be willing to pass on? They do not appear to be as transparent regarding added costs as some other resorts. I would like to get an idea of what some of the extra's cost :)

 

THANKS :)

I might. I actually heard back last week, a very nice email, saying the resort was available that day! Yay! And then information about the cost of a minister for a symbolic ceremony, a catholic priest, or a legal ceremony. Nothing about the packages, though I have the old ones from before if you want them, MaisieGirl.

I emailed back to say we want a symbolic ceremony, on that date... now I guess I just wait again to hear if it is confirmed? I am not really sure of the process here...

I have my confirmation date, however I have e-mailed them twice in the last 3 weeks and so did my TA with no answer back to any of our questions. We too want to know extra cost of certain things!

I hear this all the time, and have seen lots of brides comment on it. It is just a different place and culture, and they are busy.... it can be very frustrating though. You will probably hear back soon. Responses to me are averaging 2-4 weeks I think.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
