Confused Where To Start!! Any Great Package Prices To Offer? June 2012 Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to the forum and don't know where to start.  A month ago we had our heart set on Our Lucaya in the Bahamas after personally viewing the property and loving it. But after waiting months for prices, we finally realized that there might be better out there so we are starting from scratch! We are so overwhelmed with all the info available and was hoping with info from other brides like me, I could make an informed decision. If anyone is currently putting together a 2012 wedding and have found a great package deal or any info that might help me please feel free to add, thanks so much!!

Welcome to the forum! I know exactly how you feel. I started with NO idea whatsoever of where we would book our wedding. My fiancee and I made a list of absolute must-haves for our location, set a budget for both the wedding and what we thought our VIP guests could afford. We then took that list to a travel agent and polled a few friends who'd travelled the Carribean more than once. That got us down to list of 8 resorts. It was a glowing review on Tripadvisor from another couple that helped us make our final decision. In the end you'll go with your gut. Good luck!

We also started with no idea when we first looking into destination weddings.  We did research on tons of locations and resorts.  From there we were able to narrow down our search by making a list of what was and wasnt important to us.  From there we had a list of a few resorts we were considering so we went to a travel agent to help us narrow it down further. Good luck with your search!

Hi Jules! I am in the same boat! I am deciding between Riviera Maya vs Dominican Republic.  (Leaning toward Mexico). So many resorts to choose form! Hopefully I'll have a manageable list of locations pretty soon!

well, what I did was first narrow our search to an area, then searched all their available wedding packages. After that I googled the review for each resort and then also did a search on travel website to get a idea on pricing.

 

From there, I narrowed it down to 3 resort. Then I went ahead and got a few group quotes from companies such as Westjet, Aircanada and Itravel. Base on the quoted price, we asked a few friends on their opinion and finally found our resort and TA.

 

We went with Westjet, they offered us the best price and they have been quite accommodating. If you have any question, just PM me.

    • 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
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
