  1. Have you asked Phil about his nephew Michael? Or Jamie Dimitry? You WILL have availability for your hotel - October is a slower month so no worries. Where are you flying out of and with what airline? I had 6 guests and it was perfect. The smaller the wedding, the more personal it will be. This way you don't have to worry about "putting on a presentation" for your guests. Weddings have become so huge and "entertaining" lately. A destination wedding SHOULD be small and intimate! You shouldn't HAVE to plan anything! My planning: homemade invites welcome booklet starfish ring "pillow" sand pail for the flower girl Michael Steingard and NO MORE! It was so relaxing and it was actually a vacation with friends and family instead of me trying to entertain them during the wedding. Relax, have fun, and enjoy all the moments
  2. If you are trying to get to 150, visit CHIT CHAT CORNER. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/f/50/chit-chat-corner You will be at your mark in no time. I particularly love Random Thoughts.

  4. Don't worry ladies! You'll all have a great time. Things can go wrong at any resort in any country. You're flowers will look great (I didn't read the post), but honestly, no worries. Check out Majestic Colonial Brides on Facebook. The Colonial and Elegance are essentially the same thing. You all will love it Very luxurious!
  5. you can still access the beach and lay on the loungers. I don't think there is a problem
  6. Michael or Phil Steingard all the way!! You can see some of their pics in the facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2406102439&v=photos My album: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=620745719&aid=338686 http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=350316&id=620745719
  7. I mailed a letter by Purolator from Canada to Dominican and it cost $60.
  8. I had a "going away" party 1 week before we left. It was a chance for everyone to meet each other at home first and talk about the trip. They were able to ask questions and get to know each other first. This is when I gave away my OOT bags. Maybe you could give them most of their items in advance and then have a welcome letter/book made up and hand those out at the resort? There's lots of info about welcome letters here http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/list/69 Good luck!

    Majestic Colonial Info

    Hey Mel, here are a few links to information about the boat. Jellyfish restaurant is also pretty cool and I wish I would have done that option instead! http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/38345/boat-cruise-catamaran-rental-la-barcaza http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/43636/wedding-boat-reception-option-review http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/55710/jellyfish-restuarant-and-wedding-boat-bacaraza http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/51593/dominican-republic-excursions http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/50885/punta-cana-excursions http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/66688/la-barcaza http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/4710/la-barcaza-yacht-punta-cana
  13. Due to government changes? I don't think so. They just don't want to deal with it anymore I'm guessing. It's quite common for Dominican's losing things or putting to the side or making excuses. I've been dealing with the embassy for the past 8 months and it's just brutal. You are able to get a copy. It's actually cheap ($1, or $330 pesos) and only takes a few hours to retrieve, but there would be the fee for shipping it to you. They would need full names of you, your husband, your witnesses, and the date of the wedding. I got a copy of mine in Higuey. They have an office there. But they only speak Spanish. Let me know if you want me to find the phone number for you. I deleted it from my email already but could contact my wedding coordinator. Don't worry! We'll get you your copy!
  14. I don't believe you'll find anything close to any resorts. Punta Cana is a stretch along the ocean with no major cities nearby. There might be a La Sirena in Hiquey but not sure. Don't worry about forgetting anything "vital". Everything will still be gorgeous and wonderful I forgot to pack my viel, and it turns out the wedding coordinator had one anyway lol. And it was a better match than what I originally had "Something borrowed" lol The perfect wedding day is one where you have your family and friends with you who made the effort to travel to be there with you, your man, and a RELAXING day. It still goes by so fast so don't stress about little details. All the little things will soon be forgotten and the only thing you'll remember anyway is spending time with everyone
  15. Natalie - My husband is from Higuey so we go there all the time. I believe there are excursions that go into Higuey I just don't know any of the details. Taking a cab might be expensive, just be sure to work out the pricing details before you get in. I believe the cab will even wait for you while you shop. All of the prices are in Peso's. If you exchange money into Peso's you get a better exchange rate than you would paying US$ in the store itself. If you wondering about how safe it is, it's definitely safe, and busy. Be sure to stop by the Basilica to get pics as well. I don't know if you can go inside anymore. I thought I read somewhere that they closed it to tourists because it interfered with the locals who go to pray and pay their respects to loved ones past.
