I don't want to seem pushy or crazy doing this so early but I wish I could just get a better idea of how many guests we will have. I plan on making oot bags and would love to get a start on things sooner then later but really can't until I have a better idea of how many ppl will attend... Any suggestions??

Hi EmmA1025,

 

I am getting married on 9/7.  I sent the save the dates right after new years and had the website up and running with all the info including our travel agent's iinfo.  I sent the invites 4 months before the wedding.  RSVPs were due 2 months before so I had a 2 week padding to fill out the Now Jade paperwork that is due 45 days prior.  We had a few people that we had to call to confirm if they were a yay or nay but it was not too bad.  We have 59 guests not including us so pretty good turnout. 

 

Sounds like you are on track sending the save the dates!!!

Has anyone used www.bookit.com for their weddings? The prices seem unreal because it is so different. For example a 4 night in early June us about $1100 on apple vacations or the jade website and only $800 on bookit.com. Seems crazy. Also I know if you use www.destinationweddings.com they price match. Would they match this?

Hi! I know you posted this a couple months back but did you do a room block or was this individual booking? I'm working with someone with Wright Travel now and im waiting on the group rate. We're flying out of NJ.
sorry for getting back to you so late. I worked with Teresa Stauring from Vacations4less and she is amazing! I believe she got us a great deal and the best part is we stay for free and can give other free nights to others which I awesome. For every 5 booked rooms you get one room for free in the lowest category and number of nights. Question resulting from this: if I give my photographer a free night, would I still have to pay the day passes for him and his assistant? Less than 3 months to go. Ahhhhhh

Has any past, present or future bride chosen to use the live music (1-45 min set of guitar or sax) that's included in the divine package??? I'm interested in knowing what type of music was played. I like the ideal of the ceremony feeling as Mexican as possible, considering that's where I chose to get married. And I don't really want to fuss with the sound system and having to pick songs for the ceremony. Thoughts???? :)

Thoughts?huh.gif :)

 

We used the guitar player for the cocktail hour - he was fantastic. He played a mix of music and everyone enjoyed him.  We didn't provide any guidance or requests for what he played - just said to do the usual for weddings.  He is very talented and plays some of his own music and does covers too. We missed most of the cocktail hour for photos but what I heard sounded wonderful (and he gifted us a CD of his as a wedding present which is also quite nice). We had many positive comments about how he made the cocktail hour really special.

I used bookit!!!  My parents booked their trip for the wedding, as did two of my sisters, and my FI's entire side of the family.  You can book online or call into their centre.  I called into their 800 line and the rep was amazing.  They run specials all the time, and have promo codes too.  If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
