The Struggle Of Looking For A Resort!

Recommended Posts

Me and my fiancee are currently looking at resort for a destination wedding in Early 2019.

 

We are looking at both Dominican Rep and Mexico as possible destinations but are open to other countries not named Cuba (nothing wrong with Cuba, just been there way to many times).

 

We are looking for a nice resort to do a beach wedding, that is cost effective to both us and our guest.

 

 

Can any one suggest any resorts that I could be looking at...any also if there is a specific time in Feb/Mar/Apr that we can do it that would give us the best price?

 

 

 

Thank you for all your help!!!

My fiance & I are getting married March 2018 in Riviera Maya at the Barcelo palace. Will let u know how it turns out. We have 40 people attending. Our coordinator has been amazing! Answers every email in detail within 24 hours...so far extremely happy. One of our meals we got to choose from for our reception is steak & lobster! No brainer...we picked that. Extremely accommodating

Congratulations on your engagement!  There are lots of great all inclusive options in Mexico and the Dominican Republic! Since you're located in Canada your best bet is to work with a Canadian TA. Our Canadian affiliate is Darci Huhn and you can contact her at darci@travelbyplatinum.com. She is great and will be able to provide suggestions and pricing. Best wishes with your planning!! TA Patty

Hi... Did you ever check out or inquire about the Barcelo Bavaro Palace in Punta Cana? Im interested in that one currently, however its so difficult to find pictures of what they offer vs what I should upgrade. I keep reading tons of older reviews.. and its get overwhelming and confusing.

I think we've finally narrowed down our resort to Majestic Colonial, Punta Cana. With ten rooms booked you get a free "symbolic" ceremony...and there's a lot included in that package as well.  More than you'd expect with a free wedding.  haha....  Their facilities look amazing and reviews I've read are great.  They just got done with a renovation.  And the group prices we were offered for the facilities were great.  

 

@@Cookies1986 ...I highly recommend @TA Patty.  We've been in communication with her and she's amazing.  She's extremely informative on a lot of the resorts and gave us a great group rate for Majestic Colonial.

Hi I’m currently planning for a DR wedding too this September. I have looked at 7 all inclusive resorts, their wedding packages and emailed each one of them. They all look good, I just need to know about the resort based on their service, cleanliness and food. If anybody can give me more insights, it be nice and helpful for my decision

    • Hello Vernicula - Congratulations on your engagement! I agree with everything MarieSam previously posted. One of the most important things when choosing an agent is there experience and their level of  expertise with destinations and resorts.  All of the Wright Travel agents have years of experience working with wedding groups, we have built excellent relationships with many resorts and we have visited, toured and stayed at many resorts in several different  destinations.  Email is one way of communication so you have everything in writing and can access this a anytime, but phone calls can be just as useful. Our goal is to make sure all of your questions are answered from beginning to end and we are happy to set up a phone call whenever you would like. Some couples prefer to only communicate via email and others also want that reassuring voice with a phone call. We can do whatever works best for each coiple.  Please let us know what questioned

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
