Affordable Resort for Guests???

Recommended Posts

When I was looking for a resort, we started by looking at Apple Vacations, then checking reviews on Trip Advisor. From there, we cross-referenced Expedia and other travel sites. My guests are paying about $1300-1400 for a week at the Iberostar Dominica. Apple's price was $1650+ including insurance!

Hi Ladies!


I'm in the same boat... I want a resort that's affordable to all my guests - and one that will allow me to have a beautiful wedding as well.

I am a 2013 bride and I felt that starting my research now will allow my guests to start saving etc...BUT it's close to impossible for resorts to give us prices for 2013... every price they give us is tentative... not to mention SUPER high... for example Barcelo Bavaro Palace is quoting me $633 for 3 days based on double occupancy... $1023 for 3 days on singles... and this is land only - by the time they book air it's well over $1200.

DLR gave us the best prices so far at $132 p/night based on a 3 night min. and children would pay $55 p/night. Only problem here is that flights to La Romana are not as frequent as those anywhere else in the Dominican Republic - and flying into another airport only means having to arrange approximately 2hr transportaion to all the guests - many of whom will travel with children - and I can't imagine 3+ hours of air travel plus another 2 hours by car... So DLR is no longer my 1st choice...

I'm sure most of my guests will want to make this a vacation too so they will plan on staying more than 3 nights.

I will gladly post any additional pricing I receive from any other resorts - I hope you guys all do the same :)


Good Luck!

Would you be able to give an update on how your wedding was? I was thinking of having my wedding at the same location in January 2013 but was concerned about some of the reviews.

    • 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.
