"New Resort Opening May 1 2011" NOW LARIMAR ~ PUNTA CANA

Recommended Posts

Acutie, I didn't get a chance to go to the CTS yet so I haven't purchased any bags so far. If you want to keep at 15, no problem... just let me know how many of the green and pink. I should be heading there tomorrow to pick up some stuff :). I was wondering what's taking your contract so long, I've had 3 revised sent to me already from different TA... I didn't think they actually needed the resort to approve it?

 

Deesanders, definitely wait it out before you sign your contract. I started at about $126 per night per person and now down to $114 per night per person, I really think you should get a lower rate than that! For the dresses I agree with Acutie, the first one is what I like the most as well but consider how your BM's would feel about wearing a form-fitting dress. I love your color ideas, by the way :)

K I think I am going to wait it out though my TA is probably going to be annoyed because this is the 2 contract.. I mean I feel bad but I don't want our guests to have to pay more then they should!! I want the best deal possible for them.

Deesanders, don't feel bad at all! You're going to be bringing in a lot of money for them regardless so take advantage of the time you still have and the resources/ tips from other brides as far as rates! I would have settled with the $120 rate if I didn't realize that Acutie was getting less! Besides I get rates from a bunch of TA's from different companies :) you're atleast sticking with one! ha!

deesanders I agree.....the dresses are very formfitting which is fine if the girls can pull it off....I had to go more empire waisted due to the fact that all my girls have much different figures... I had my contract changed a few times but not for the prices.... to change the number of rooms I was reserving... I think it took a few days each time....I really didnt bargain down on price because 368 for four nights trop view and $400 for 4 nights ocean....seemed pretty good!  I dont think the quote is terrible, your talking 10-12 dollars more a night so it really depends on if you wanna play the back and fourth game.... also I was under the impression if the resort price goes down they have to give you the lower price....JB that dress is perfect for TTD..... I need to start looking for one too.  Who are you using for TTD .......  HDC prices I think are reasonable but I still havnt locked in.... prob tomm  The full day photography is pre ceremony getting ready?ceremony?photo shoot/ and reception 1400  with everthing, you can get it cheaper if you have everything put on CD and then print yourself..... and TTD (they come back the next morning)  is aprox $300 depending which TTD session we choose .... ranges from 250-400  So in total will be about 1700.....which was more than I wanted to spend especially since the resort also give photgrapher but I really want to have good long lasting memories..... I wish we can exchange photgrapher for something else!

Moniwoni, did you find out who the resort provides as far as photographer? I've seen other brides on here use the photog provided with their package as their TTD photog... just an idea, if it saves you $$ you might want to consider... but it would be nice to see the resort's photog work though... One of the questions I've asked the WC and still yet to be answered! I did get my confirm though!!! It's official I am a Now Bride!

 

Also figured out how to save the map as a picture and I added what's what on it then would probably use it for the welcome thing/ brochure.

Should I do it this way or should I just insert numbers on the map and have a legend type thing?

JB I love your bridesmaid dresses and I LOVE the resort map. I am def going to have to still that from you :)

 

Moniwoni, I agree with you but I do think I might wait till hurricane season comes around and hope the rates go down.

 

I really would like to know the resort DJ and the Photographer as well ladies.
