How important is the site inspection? Did anyone go without it?

Recommended Posts

Hello brides!

 

I need some advice. Hubby and I are pretty much in love with the Gran Caribe chapel for our destination renewal of vows. But this summer has not treated us well financially (I'm a teacher) and it looks like we don't have the money for a site inspection!

 

Have any of you ladies planned and done your DW without a site inspection? Any experiences or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi VJ!

 

I'm in the same boat as you, I won't be doing a site inspection for our wedding May 11, 2012. I am lucky enough to have my TA/coordinator traveling to the Mayan Riviera and she's going to pop by our hotel.  From what I've heard a lot of TA's do mini trips throughout the year to check out different wedding locations.  So even if yours can't make it there may be another person in that office who has or will be traveling to your particular resort.

 

Good luck!

There are A LO of women on here who are more than happy to help with everything!! Which is why this site is SO great!! Start a new thread!! Asking for pictures specifically for that location keep bumping it up you may get lucky!! I have had TONS of fellow brides send me their personal pictures in e-mail from their weddings from the Beaches Resort in Negril!!

I'm not doing a site inspection. I just did lots of research based on reviews and the great people from this website. I'm trusting everything will be good. And personally I want the first time I'm there to be for my wedding, more exciting in my mind.

We aren't doing a site visit.  Financially it wasn't feasible for us and we trust all the months of research we did before hand, also this site has been a life saver!

Same here - doing a site visit just wasn't feasible.  However, for me the vacation days from work was an even bigger problem than the money.

I am with all the other ladies, it just wasn't feasible. I put in hours of research though of reviews, travel agents, past brides, pictures, etc... We trust our decision and can't wait!

If you can't do a site visit try to look on youtube. Some of the previous brides who have done site visits uploaded videos of their visits. This way its like you doing a site visit without doing a site visit. Also if you go to your resorts page most of them have a live webcam. You can see the setup for some weddings and actual weddings going on.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
