How Soon Did Guests Book Flights/Hotel to Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

We are getting married on July 19, 2011 and we just booked a few weeks ago - I'm not sure about some of our guests since people are coming from all over the place and a lot are using their own travel agents.  We booked sooner than I had planned because there are less flights from Canada and didn't want to have the price jump due to low availability.  I know some guests are waiting to book, which is stressing me out a little, but I posted a notice on our website as well that it is recommended to book travel within the next month or so in order to avoid everything booking up and having to pay a ridiculous price.

I'm a Bridal party member for a wedding in June and I just booked ours this morning.  Alot of money! I was too afraid the resort would be sold out or Air would skyrocket.  Still paid a mint though.

My wedding is is November 2011.

We secured a group rate as well for our guests.  Right now we have 14 people confirmed (you have to guarantee 10 people within so many days of getting the group rate price) and then my WC needs a guest list 3 months before our wedding date - so August. 

So I'm planning on sending my invitations out in May and asking for an RSVP of July something...


Everyone that wants to book with our group rate has to book by September in any case anyways.

Plus we are doing a private reception that I paid for a specific amount of people which is the case for our ceremony as well - you have to pay x number of dollars for every person over the amount I paid for.  So I want to avoid last minute bookings as well and being surprised with a new number of people - so as long as they RSVP by July then they can book however they want :)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
