     Your so welcome! Just an FYI, I don't know if you're getting legally married there or it's symbolic but i know that there is a residency requirement. You have to be at the hote 3 business days before the wedding. Arrival day, Sundays, wedding day and any dominican holidays don't count. We arrived on a Saturday and were married on a Thursday. Mon, Tue and Wed were our "residency days". I'm not sure but I THINK the same goes for symbolic weddings as well so check with Susana and make sure to schedule your appointment before you head down there. I emailed her a couple of weeks before to set it up. Again, I hope all this info puts you at ease. Good luck with everything I will be sending my warmest well wishes.

          Can you please email me the information on the wedding packages and the cost per person?  I have tried to get in touch with a wedding coordinator and am not having much luck.

              Has anyone notice that prices for the resort have gone up?! I booked someone honestly like 4 1/2 weeks ago at $86 per night for an adult and I went to book someone today and it was nearly $145 a night per person. Its for our May 2013 wedding. I was shocked really? Thinking maybe its considered peak now in July? IDK, maybe they will go back down...sigh. Feeling really worried about this pretty substantial price increae all of a sudden and we are still like 10 1/2 months out.

                I just received my first email from Marlene and I want to email back but from reading through some of these threads I want to be sure to hit her with one email and ask all of my questions in there.  So with that here is what I have so far and I need some suggestions on what I may be missing.


                I would like a beach ceremony and beach reception.  With eitehr the Strawberry or Tangerine packages what is the additional cost for the beach reception?  Is dinner included in the prices?  With a beach reception is there lighting? 


                Can I bring lanterns for centerpieces? 


                My goal is to not go overboard but I still want this experience to be a WOW factor.

                  Trivera are you checking prices on the barcelo website? I was worried about that too that's why I locked in my group rates. I didn't want to take the chance. My TA told me when I locked in my group rates that they weren't updated for 2013 yet mine are 2012 but since I locked them in they wouldn't change if prices went up for next June. So maybe they are the new rates. Try calling the 1-800 # for barcelo they are helpful. I think that's a big $ difference. Maybe if you call they will know why and when best time to book is.

                    How many rooms did you have to commit to to lock in your rate? If you don't mind me asking what is your locked in pp per night rate? Thanks for your suggestions :)

                      Trivera, I am using a TA in Baltimore.  I met them at a Bridal Show.  They are handling all my guest room reservations and they have been fantastic!! The agency is called Dreamers Travel and I am working with Mark, Laura and Jennifer.  We reserved 30 rooms through them and there are only 2 left!! I am so excited!!!  With them, we had to put down $100.00 per room to lock the price.  The good thing is that with them you don’t loose your money.  If all the rooms are not booked by 120days prior to your wedding date, they reimburse 100% so you don’t loose anything.  When I was looking for other ways to have my guest reserve, all the agencies had some kind of fee for those rooms that were not booked.  also, they don't charge you for anything.  With them once you reach your deadline they ask you for permission to release the rooms that are not booked and you get your money back.  Also, your guests have until 2 months prior to your wedding date to pay for their rooms.


                      Give them a call and see what deal they can get you.  They are really nice! Good luck girl!!!!
