It is your wedding and they should have worked extra hard to make your day perfect. So did they ever reimburse you the money, that is just horrible. Glad to hear the ceremony was great!! thanks... no they never reimbursed me the money... they said they counted over 70 people... and that was such a lie but i just didnt want to fight with them anymore i just left it like that and enjoyed the rest of my vacation
  7. Good morning ladies – so im back from my wedding and my honeymoon and thank God that turned out PERFECT… but before that it was all a disaster The Bavaro-Princess staff is very rude! They don’t have any people skills at all and can I add I am Spanish… they treated me and my guest like garbage… to start off I have been planning my wedding for over a year and a half the day I arrived the hotel staff tells me that they are booked and over flooded with guest and that they would have to place me and my guest in another resort I was of course dumbfounded and told them I made my reservations way ahead more than a year ago and explained to them that I was getting married and that all of my guest already made their reservations to stay in the bavaro –princess… The thing is that this argument lasted 2 days… they ended up giving me one room at the princess because the wedding planner needed me to be in the resort for the wedding day she didn’t want me running back and fourth from one resort to the other… this was hell and I did not spend enough time with my guest the way I wanted to because of this mess… The wedding planner francelia was awesome on emails she sounded very kind and helpful… until I got there… I had a maximum of 65 people that were coming to the wedding – only 46 showed up – MAKE SURE YOU COUNT YOUR GUEST IF YOU ARE CHOOSING THIS OPTION… but the morning off my fiancé paid for the wedding and francelia said it would be best to pay for the maximum and that they would reimburse me with no problems if the 65 don’t show up… the day after the wedding I went to get my reimbursement and francelia said well you didn’t tip the DJ or the MC or the person in charge of the party… oh and the MC counted way more that 65 people… I was so fed up at this point and pist off… I am the most organized person in the world I showed her proofs of families who didn’t show up… 46 people showed up… but they are soo money hungry that they will make your life miserable… The ceremony turned out Perfect… but that’s because I chose to have the renewal of vows since I was having my fiancés pastor marry us there… it was beautiful, the scenery was amazing the weather was perfect it was just like a fairy tale… my favorite part of the entire experience was the ceremony it was just breathtaking… The party again, at the last minute francelia tells me that it was too windy to have the party on the beach so we moved it inside… I made different CD’s for the DJ because from other brides I heard that the DJ seemed to mix and play the wrong songs thank god he had our entrance music and our first dance cd… after that he lost all of my CD’s… at the end of the party I went back to the DJ and jokingly asked him ok party is over did you find my CD’s and yeah he had them staked on his CD booklet… mind you I gave the wedding planner my CD’s in a CD binder they were very organized all labeled… My wedding was definitely a wedding to remember… and if I could do it al over again I would definitely have the ceremony and then have dinner in one of the restaurants I would definitely would have never had the party… the party wasn’t a disaster but it really was a waste of money… my guest all had a blast and this event will definitely be a memorable one…

  9. Thank you all so much for all of your advice… I am going to definitely talk to my mom and explain to her how I feel. The problem with me sharing that special dance with my step dad is the following… I am my moms only daughter and when it comes to spoiling me and giving me the world she doesn’t think twice I had a huge sweet 16 and my mom did everything she paid for everything, she’s amazing creating things with her hands and I danced a special song with my step dad and later on I found out that he did not help my mom not one bit… I felt soo bad… for my bridal shower again he didn’t help her not even to go to cosco (wholesale store in NY) and get the drinks… My mom is walking me down the aisle by herself because she deserves that recognition and I am going to tell her that… and I also want to do a special dance with her just her and while I dance with her my FI can also dance with his mom – because shes also an amazing woman – I don’t mind sharing my song… and screw traditions… that’s all the dancing im doing… our first dance, and the dedications to mothers dance… what do you guys think?
  10. OMG this is Awesome!!! you did an awesome JOB ... I am looking to make luggage tags would you be able to tell me how you made yours? where you got them from? the taggs... thanks
  11. Hello everyone – I have 2 months to my Punta Cana wedding and everything seems to be falling in to place little by little… but one small little detail… my parents were divorced when I was 2yrs old, my father never looked for me and when he saw me he would treat me like a stranger… the thing is that my mom has been my mother and my father all my life I cant thank her enough for everything that she has done for me… the thing is that she remarried when I was 10 and this man has been a “father figure†to me since… When I ask around, people tell me that I should have a father daughter dance because he deserves it… because he’s been my “father†and because he “raised meâ€â€¦ yes we have a good relationship but not the father daughter relationship – I appreciate him for being with my mom – that’s all… I’m torn because I know that he’s probably expecting to dance that father daughter dance with me but I don’t want to… I am thinking about dedicating and dancing with my mom the “father daughter†dance I want people to know how special she is to me and I want to let her know how much I appreciate her for being a single mom – for raising me for being who I am today… all I am is because of her… but I also don’t want my step-father to feel bad… Please help me give me some ideas, what are some of you girls doing?
  12.
