PLUS 1's

Recommended Posts

If I were single, I would be upset if I spent over one thousand dollars to come to a wedding, and couldn't bring a guest. I took a female friend to a wedding once and it was such a relief to not have to sit alone with people I didn't know very well. I was so thankful to the bride and groom for allowing me to bring a friend and I had a great time!

Well, none of the brides here are forcing anyone to come to a wedding, so if a single can't suck it up for a few hours and mingle with the other singles then that's too bad.  Ideally, it's also a vacation for the guests.  And I don't think any of us who are not inviting Plus 1's are intentionally trying to spite anyone or leave anyone out; but it becomes a very difficult choice between picking someone's boyfriend/girlfriend or "date", or inviting another dear friend or relative that you really want to include in your event. The tough part is, that if you don't invite that single person at all, it causes even more hurt feelings, and that's the last thing anyone wants to do.  With that said, I probably wouldn't want to go alone either, but if it's a close enough friend/relative that I want to show my support for and I can afford it, I'd suck it up and go.  I'd bring a few friends along that can hang out on their own the day of the wedding.

Yes! That's how I'm really starting to feel!!

We included and guest for all of our single guests - our thinking on this being, if they are going to put out the money to come then its the least we could do (and we would extend an opportunity to bring a guest if we had gotten married at home).  Also since we have a majority of guests who are couples we didn't think it would be much fun for a handful of singles not to have a plus 1.  As much as the trip is for our wedding it is also everyone else's vacation, they have paid their money and taken vacation time to attend our wedding so we want to ensure they have the best time possible, if that means someone brings a friend or "date" we don't know all that well it is fine with us.

    • 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
    • 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.
