Doing everything wrong?

Recommended Posts

I know there is probably no right or wrong way to do things but i just feel like im doing things backwards. The resort my wedding is now booked in is a small boutique hotel with only 22 rooms. The resort initally required the bride and groom to put down a 50% deposit on all the rooms that they want to reserve for their wedding guests. Well for me this is impossible, not only do i not know what rooms my guest will want as they range in price per room, some rooms sleep 2 guests while others sleep 4 or 6 but also to put down a 50% deposit on the amount of rooms i would require would be approx. $15,000 which is money or a credit card limit i do not have. So instead of doing it this way we figured out our date and just had everyone we knew to be coming for sure (close family and bridal party) to book right away. We now have 7 rooms booked and are just waiting for 3 more couples which should be this week. I have yet to contact the WP of the resort since booking (just waiting for the last 3 couples) I hope that because i didnt do it the way they requested doesnt screw anything up for me but i just didnt see any other choice.

 

Also because now almost everyone is booked should i still send out invites?

You're not doing everything wrong :)  You're doing the best you can with the situation in front of you!  We still sent out invites even though we did it after everyone was booked too.  Doing it was more so just for formality purposes, rather than a "hey, you're invited" kind of thing.  It's nice to still have that keepsake (in my opinion anyway!)

Sounds reasonable enough to me. Though I think you should get in touch with the wp now considering 7 rooms are already booked, why wait for 3 more?? I would still send invitations, In fact I sent STD a year prior, then guests started booking, and am only now ordering my invites.

I agree.  You are not doing everything wrong.  I think there is too much pressure put on brides to do things a certain way.  The way I figure, your wedding, your day, your way.

Sounds to me like you're doing a great job!  Your signature says you have 26 guests booked, and Tensing Pen is so stunning — it was one of my top choices too.  You're going to have an amazing wedding! 

 

I would still send out invites, because there's detailed information that your guests still need.  What time will the wedding start?  Is there a dress code?  Are there other activities like a rehearsal dinner, day-after brunch, etc.?  If your wedding is next May, I'd send out an invitation with these details around next March or April.  

 

Until then RELAX you are doing everything right. :)

    • 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!
