Today felt like a horrible nightmare that I keep hoping I'm going to wake up from.

We've had our wedding booked for April 9th at the Ocean Coral & Turquesa for past last 4 months. We've been beyond excited.. created cool website with pics... printed invites & save the dates.. Just really fell in love with the property (sans seaweed issues :-)

But found out today that the travel agent we've been working with didn't hold the rooms (and didn't inform us on how important and urgent it was to put them on hold) and now the entire hotel is full. No Vacancy. Sold out until the day after our wedding.

I'm not typically a "drama mama" but today, I'm Totally Freaking Out!

We need to find another 3.5 to 5star all-inclusive venue in PDC, with a similar price point, that's available on April 9th (or worse case senario, the 10th). And can also accommodate 40-60 rooms for our guests.

Help! Fellow Brides & wedding angels... I need a Miracle✨🙏🏻✨ Milagro :-) Any suggestions or quick tips you can offer are warmly welcomed!

Oh no! This is why it is so important to work with an agent that specializes in weddings.

 

If you want to reach out to us at info@wrighttravelagency.com we can go over some options.
