  3. Mandy: yes, luckily a really close friend of mine took some great pics of the reception area. I'll post those. If you do the quiet pool reception, you actually don't need a dance floor. We had one because we thought we were doing the beach and then forgot to take it off our package when we changed. The pic of me and my dancing is on a white dance floor that fit 40 people on it. The lighting was perfect because we had tea lights all over the table, plus the pool is lit and Cristina put candles around the pool and in the pool (I had a lot of tealight holders which I brought at the dollarstore ba
  4. I'm so sorry for everyone who has been having a really tough go of it lately. Here's to it getting better!!! The three day rule, I too, thought was purely for legal weddings. And because my step-daughter was on school break, we had planned on getting there earlier than was necessary. But I was told that they wanted to meet with me several days before the wedding to sort out the details. But I had already booked our travel and knew we were getting there a week before the wedding. Skygirl, I feel your pain. My step-daughter is similar to you. If she even looks at the sun, she's freckly and
  5. Thanks Mandy!! The hubby and I chose it because we hadn't seen any other pics using it as a reception before either. And we LOVED IT!!! It wasn't windy at all because you're surrounded (at a distance) by the buildings. Of course, we couldn't use our floating lanterns because it was far too windy at the beach. So happy we didn't keep the reception there. I'm really happy we did the buffet. There were attendants at the carving stations (we had too - one fish the other meat) but you put your own food on the plates. There were little signs telling everyone what each platter was. There were
  6. There's a lot of questions, I'll answer what I can: SuzzMF - I got my hair done by the hairstylist but a friend of mine did the makeup. Also, I brought with me clip-in real hair extensions and another friend that speaks fluent spanish, explained what I wanted. It looked FAR better than I could have imagined. I came with back-up plans too - just in case. LOL! I made my hair appt for 11.30 because the picture people were coming at 2pm for my 4pm ceremony. I never felt rushed and it was plenty of time. Also, I think that picture of the gazebo is over at Secrets. Which you can use pro
  7. Thanks guys!!!! Miss Bliss - My hubby created a stencil of it. Actually 2 - one with the words which I used black on, then one with the heart which we decided to use lilac on because it was our wedding color (our colors were lilac and purple but spray paint doesn't have that kind of range). He pulled up the I heart NY logo, put it into word and then changed it to DR. The size of the paper we used as stencil had to be the width of the bag. And while I spray painted it I had put brackets to hold the stencil in its place securely. The bags, I brought at a bag store in London, near me. What
  8. My OOT Bags~ the big hits and the things that weren't used
  9. Ask away! I've promised the hubby that I'd be on here one more week and then I'll have to resume my life. And plan my AHR. And change my name. And mail thank you cards. And plan our official honeymoon. So until Friday, I'm all yours - lol! 1. I heard that there is a rooftop where you can have your ceremony, did they show it to you or did you see it?'s There is and it the club on the resort. It called Eclipse and it is very cute place. And where Cristina wanted my Plan B to be planned. It's part covered and part uncovered and could be very cute as an option. I celebrated my bachlorette ni
  10. I don't think they'd do a separate buffet but that'll be all up to the kitchen staff. I find it hard to think that they won't be able to work with your group. As for if they'll be other weddings, I'm thinking when she said they're having 60+ in April that there will be other weddings on your day. They have three spots at Now - 11am, 1pm & 4pm and only 1 at Secrets. It does suck seeing two other brides walking by you on YOUR wedding day but you block it out and move on. In the end, they were passing figures. I cannot even tell you where they were having their events because we had the
  11. This is what I was saying. The only way to secure the things you were once told and the prices you were once given is to find the emails from Claribel stating it. If you don't have the emails, then you aren't going to get it. You'll have to search all of your emails ladies. And I have to say, it does suck when you tell your guests to meet you at Castaways for dinner (during the day it's buffet but at night it's a lovely seafood restaurant) or Capers and find out that it's closed for a wedding/event. That happened to us while there. The resort cannot have one less restaurant when it's fu
  12. Hello!!! I've just returned from my wedding bonanza at Now Larimar in DR and wanted to note what were hits from my gift bag. Our OOT bags was a massive hit!!! Everyone used them over the weekend which helped the guests recognize each other. And made me feel great after spending quite a few cold days outside in London spray painting them! There were other people there for weddings but ours stood out sooo much. Make them individual rather than just buying any old tote. Secondly, I did a face book of the guests (can be seen in the pic hanging off the bags). It was great for everyone to
  13. REPOSTED FROM THE NEW RESORT FORUM. Just in case these questions occurred to anyone else, here are a few things skygirl asked me: To answer your questions, personally, I'd get there at least three to four days before the wedding. Even if you're doing a symbolic one like we did. To get legally married in DR you'd need to get documents translated and meet with a Dominican judge that will only speak spanish. Cristina or Mercy will act as translator for you. Pastor York doesn't do any legal religious weddings - as far as I know. He books up quickly, so you should send him your info and
