you need to do a pro's and cons list, what are you looking for, and what you hate, the particulars and warm welcome of the resort as well. Location distance from amenities etc

@@KathyandEthan Congrats on booking your wedding! Where are you flying from? I tried to find a Resort for end of April for approx $1500 per guest and just could not! Not sure if it was due to flight availability, but I ended up booking at Hard Rock Cancun for twice that :(

 

I did have AM Resorts on my Wish List with travel agent and it came back much higher....  Having said that, I am from Canada.

I had the hotel quoted me with $290 per night with a double occupancy ($145/pp per night) so for 4 nights its $580 without flights PP. They are all flying from florida where flights are around $400 so it will be under $1,000 per person for 4 nights. 

 

There was also a link on the bottom of the hotels website where you can refer someone and get free nights. So I had my 'bridesmaid' refer me before I contacted the hotel and now she now has a 3 night stay for free. We will also get one free room when we book 25 rooms together on our block. And i think we get upgraded if we book 10 rooms. 20% of spa treatments for all our guest. and a private check in. with a few other minor things for free.

 

The only thing I didn't like was I would have to put down a ton of money to actually reserve the rooms, so we just reserved the rate for our guest for free and are telling them to book early before the hotel books ups.  

 

Hope that helps! our date is april 18. I think the rates drop after the 12th. 


I ditched my TA when I found a cheaper option but I am also a really detailed person ( I used to plan events as a living) so hopefully I will be fine.

 

The saddest part of ditching a TA was losing the hotel transfers but i'm looking into other options on my own now and think it will be fine. With all the reviews online i'm not too worried.

@@KathyandEthan - Your diligence is being rewarded and passed on to your guests!

 

Good Job!


My Wedding is from Canada for 7 days which would explain why the difference in per guest price.... :o  Knowing your rate wasn't based on a week gives me comfort!

 

Thanks for sharing!

@@angelajackson Thats awesome that your guest can go for so long. Most of mine can only do a long weekend but at least it will give my FI and & I a mini honeymoon since we are staying the whole week (which will be around $1,500.)

    • 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?
