Wedding Info

Hola Friends and Family!

As most of you probably know, we are getting married in February in the beautiful Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!  Time is flying by and we are so thrilled for this upcoming trip!  We will be getting married on February 10, at Hard Rock Punta Cana.  We would love for all of you to join us for this very special occasion.  We also understand that this is a lot to ask of everyone as this requires vacation time and international travel, so please do not feel obligated to attend.  We promise to take lots of pictures to share with anyone who is unable to make it.

We know that sending this information in an e-mail is somewhat informal, but the attached wedding guest information package includes all the resort and travel information you will need in order to secure your reservation with our group.  We are working exclusively with Kristin Schoettmer at Beach Bum Vacation.  Kristin will be the contact person for each of you to plan and book your stay.  She is our destination wedding group organizer and will personally take care of each of you to customize your package.  We encourage you to reach out to her to book your entire stay, including transportation to and from the resort (already included in the package price) and airfare, if you wish.   If you do not want to miss out on a really great air schedule you find (or a deal you might find late at night-we all know how quickly airfare changes) then please, feel free to book your own plane ticket.   If you do so, please make sure to get your itinerary to Kristin so that she can coordinate your transportation to and from the airport.  It is important that she is able to let the transfer company know what time to expect you so that they can prepare for your arrival (and departure).  Please note- airfare booked outside of Beach Bum Vacation is not covered by any insurance purchased through Beach Bum Vacation. 

The block of rooms we have reserved for the wedding are on hold just for our group.  The rates in the packet will not change and the rooms will remain on hold until the RSVP deadline, October 3, 2017.   After that day, availability at the hotel cannot be guaranteed.  It is very important to understand that the rooms available are on a first come, first serve basis.  The sooner you book, the more likely you will receive the room you want for the dates you wish to travel.  There are several coveted room categories that we know you may want, so you will want to reserve those ASAP!  We do have a variety of room categories on hold with the hotel in order to accommodate everyone.

We appreciate your understanding in using Kristin exclusively for your travel to our wedding as she is our direct contact and will be coordinating all of our guests.   Kristin’s contact information is listed throughout the attached information and she is copied on this email.  All questions about planning, booking and resort information can be directed to Kristin at Beach Bum Vacation, but if there is anything you need to ask us, feel free to contact us as well.

RSVP Deadline is:  October 3, 2017

 Final payment due date is:  October 3, 2017

To reserve your room simply fill out the reservation form found here:  

A reservation form must be on file for each person in order for your reservation to be confirmed at the hotel.  Reservation forms will be processed in the order that they are received.

As soon as Kristin receives your reservation form, she will be in touch with you to finalize the details of your stay and to confirm your reservation. You will receive an e-mail from her with the details of your trip listed so you can review and confirm before she moves forward with processing your deposit (even though the form asks for payment information, nothing is charged to your card until you reply to the confirmation e-mail she sends you).   After she receives your confirmation e-mail, your deposit will be processed manually and she will then send you an invoice for your records.   At the time of reservation submission, you will need your $150 per person deposit ready.  All details about your reservation can be found inside the attached packet. CLICK HERE FOR PACKET!

We are looking forward to sharing our special day with all of you who are able to join us on the beach!
