Secrets Capri - process for blocking off rooms for guests

Recommended Posts

I think I've narrowed down the location for our fall 2013 destination wedding to Secrets Capri. I've been working directly with the hotel's wedding coordinator for the last 3 weeks through email. She recently quoted me a decent pp per night rate for rooms. In order to block off the rooms, we need to sign the contract and pay the first night for each room. 


Here is the issue, we have not sent out our invitations because we haven't secured a date/location. I have an estimate of how many guests will attend/how many rooms we may need. I'm worried that if I pay for these rooms, I may have less guests attend and loose the money. Or, even worse, since our wedding is in the Fall, what if there is a tropical storm or hurricane that prevents everyone from going.


I guess I have to wait to see the final contract language to figure out all the "what-ifs". But what I want to know - is this normal procedure for blocking off rooms? Would I not have to block off rooms/secure the date this way if I was working with a travel agent?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
