    Hey April4884~

     

    Congrats on setting the date and choosing Dreams! I am currently working with Patty Jordan from Wright Travel Agency (official TA for BDW). She has been absolutely wonderful and very promp with responses. Essentially after contacting Patty and deciding on Dreams, she requests a group contract from Travel Impressions. We are booking 10 rooms (6 room minimum for a 'group') and once signing the contract, we were responsible for putting down a $1,000 deposit to secure the rooms. Once your guests contact the TA and commit to a room, they will then put down a $100 deposit per person and your original deposit will go towards the cost of your room instead. With this promotional contract, you are still eligible for the complimentary wedding package at Dreams. Also 1 free VIP room upgrade per 10 paid rooms; and 1 "complimentary" room per 6 rooms booked -- the complimentary room is a credit you will received after returning from your trip.

     

    Hope this helps! I definately recommend a TA. :)

    • How is everyone working out a group rate/payment (if you don't mind me asking)?  We are looking at 20-30 people and it seems as though the only way to get our room free/upgrades is to book and pay for the whole thing at once. We are very uncomfortable with asking guests to pay us back personally for their rooms but I also hate to miss our on our free rooms.  Any input/suggestions would be extremely appreciated.  Does a TA get us the free rooms without us paying?  Does anyone have a good TA they recommend?

        Hello to all the future Brides! Congratulations to all of you, I agree with you 100% that choosing the resort and wedding location is very stressful. I am still debating whether or not to stick to our plan to get married in Nassau, Bahamas or change my location to the Dominican Republic. I have been doing tons of research on the Dominican Republic and it seems as though everything is SO much cheaper than in the Bahamas. It looks as though your dollars will stretch a lot further out there. The only thing I'm concerned about is the length of travel time it takes to get there and plus we have already had some people express their thoughts and concerns in regards to choosing the Dominican Republic. I hope that if I do decide to go with a location in Punta Cana that I will be able to utilize all the expertise on these forums! happy planning =)

              Hello!

               

              I have worked with several brides who have held their wedding and reception at the Jellyfish. It's beautiful and I have attached information about the restaurant and their wedding packages. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

                  Hello Ladies....can anyone who has been here advise how the nightlife/entertainment is at the resort? We will have at least 10 single ppl coming and want to make sure they will have a good time as well...how was the disco/sports bar? I noticed it says there is late night snack at the buffet...what does that include & can you get drinks there late night as well? Is the lobby a big enough size to meet up and have drinks with your group? Thanks!

                    Hi AngelaR,

                    I know we are going with the ultimate package but haven't decided or discussed the reception yet. We just sent a deposit for the room block so I'm sure now the planning will begin. At first I thought I wanted to do an outdoor ceremony & reception but now I'm thinking more towards an outside ceremony and inside reception. We are looking to keep the wedding cost affordable, not having to pay extra for a dancefloor or lights sounds better to me.  Yesterday I sent her an email to touch base and see where to go from here and havent heard back yet.  Your wedding will be beautiful no matter what, whether it be poolside, on the beach or in the ballroom :)
