Welcome, Family and Friends! We are so excited to spend an extended weekend with you in gorgeous Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Your presence means the world to us as we have the time of our lives and pledge our love to each other in paradise.
Carol, of Barefoot Bridal, a destination wedding travel agency, has been amazing with helping us with all the booking details. Carol has worked with the hotel to secure a group rate with the Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana and to help all of our guests book their travel accommodations for our wedding on November 11, 2018.
Should you have any questions related to traveling, please contact Carol and Barefoot Bridal. There is a chat button on the bottom right hand corner of this site, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 866-8-BAREFOOT.
Paradisus Palma Real is a deluxe luxury all inclusive hotel in Punta Cana, approximately 25 minutes from the Punta Cana airport, providing a YHI Wellness Center, Royal Service, fine dining, 3 pools, casinos and other services. The Paradisus Palma Real is a luxurious all inclusive resort, ideal for couples and adults. In each and every one of the guestrooms even the smallest details have been carefully designed to offer a personalized experience and guarantee your full satisfaction.
At Paradisus Palma Real All-inclusive includes:
For the ultimate luxurious experience, upgrade to the Adults Only Royal Service. Each of the 200 suites includes:
Paradisus Palma Real features 554 luxurious suites located in different 3-story buildings. Each suite comes with a balcony or terrace.
The Special Wedding Group Rates have been secured and rooms have been blocked off with a room block, waiting for you to book your stay! There is a 3-night minimum stay for the rates. The rates are below. In addition to these rates, we will include on your invoice round trip airport direct transfers for $35 per person.
PLEASE NOTE: Not every room category has been added to the room block. If you choose a room that is not part of the room block (either because it was never part of it or because all the other rooms in the block have been booked), I will have to ask the hotel to confirm both the availability of the room and if they will honor the rates. I will let you know once that has been confirmed or ask you to choose another category if it is not available. This resort sells out fast; to guarantee the room category of your choice, book asap!

To be considered part of Jasmin & Andrickson's Wedding Group, you must book through the group rates and not through any other method (even directly with the hotel). We have negotiated competitive group rates and secured a room block to make this as easy as possible. To participate in all of the wedding-related activities, you must stay at Paradisus Palma Real as part of the group.
A refundable deposit in the amount of $100/room is required to reserve your room and book your stay. The deadline for the balance to be paid is August 19, 2018. You do not need to know all the parties in the room, the travel dates, or the room category; book your room based on what you think you will need and any changes can be made until the balance due date.
Any changes made to your booking after the balance due date will be subject to a $75 change fee. Any changes requested after the balance due date must be paid for in full upfront even before they are confirmed.
Yes! You can structure your payments in one of 3 ways:
Any deposit or payments made towards bookings as part of wedding groups are fully refundable if requested in writing to email@example.com at least 7 days in advance of August 19, 2018. If a cancellation request is not made in time, all moneys paid towards travel will be nonrefundable.
Travel Insurance is available and highly recommended. Rates are per person, depending on the cost of the land-only portion of your trip. $69.00/person for trips up to $1,250/person, $89.00/person up to $6,000, and $99.00/person up to $2,500.. and so on. Travel Insurance can be added at any point; however, in order to receive the full benefit of the travel insurance, you must add it within 14 days of booking. Otherwise, the "Cancel For Any Reason" benefit will not apply and the only benefits will be for in-travel issues. Please note that once purchased, travel insurance is nonrefundable.
Yes! A passport book is needed to fly to and from the U.S. and the D.R. - please take the time now to locate your passport and check the expiration date; make sure it is valid for 6 months after your anticipated return date.

There is a discounted rate for the round trip semi-private direct airport transporation for $35 per person in addition to the hotel room rates.
There is a $10 tourist visa fee that must be paid in cash when you arrive at the Punta Cana airport. You can purchase it online here to avoid the lines: https://www.dgii.gov.do/Tturistaweb/home
The weather in the D.R. is hot and humid with averages in the 80s year around. Humidity is lowest during Dec-Feb and increases the closer you get to August. Hurricane season starts in June and continues through November. There is a gentle breeze that comes off the ocean on most days, so make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen because the breeze makes it easy to forget just how hot and strong the sun really is!
You do not need an adapter for your electronics; the outlets in the D.R. will accept U.S. plugs.
I can assist you with booking excursions. Let us know me what kind of activities you'd like to do, how many people, and the date you'd like to go and we can get you rates.
Barefoot Bridal can assist with airfare. Please contact your TA with your travel dates, depature gateway, number of people traveling, and special requests at firstname.lastname@example.org with the wedding name. However BFB cannot gaurantee that we have better rates than what you may find on your own.
Finding cheaper rates than the group rates online is very rare! However, if you have found cheaper rates, please take a screen shot that includes the final total price (with all taxes and fees), what the price includes (dates and room category), the website you found it on and the date and time on your computer and send it to email@example.com. We will ask the hotel for a price match. It may take several business days to hear back from the groups department for the match. We have been successful in the past in reducing entire group contracts, but hotels can also reject price matches due to having a group contract in place.
