Hi Ladies, 

 

I'm a newbie and just started my wedding planning process. I grew up in the DR but live in the states now. Naturally I wanted to go back home to get married. I am looking at Melia Caribe Tropical as it seems the most affordable for guest without sacrificing quality not to mention its looks amazing. I was wondering if anyone had additional details on pricing. I'm looking to get married October 2016 and wanted to start finalizing location by the year end. 

 

Has anyone have a medium size wedding (75 guest)?  Is there a cost per head for a private reception and the ceremony?

What kind of group rates were available for guest?

 

Did the hotel do any additional comp for extra business you brought in with your guest? like offer free welcoming reception or free hotel nights etc (i did look at hardrock and they had a comp for the number of nights the wedding party booked)

 

Also Photographers & videographers, recommendations? Also was there additional costs to bring someone from the outside?

 

Did anyone have a photobooth? Flowers? DJ?  

 

Any information will be help as i'm working on our budget and we're looking to save as much as possible. 

 

Thank you in advance!
