  1. My husband and I worked with this company during our summer wedding (in June). They are AMAZING! As we were planning from afar, we spent a lot of time researching various companies and read nothing but wonderful reviews about HDC, so we just went for it. Arnaud was very prompt, professional and TRUSTWORTHY (this was a huge deal as we were dealing with expenses with a company from another country!) . We met with him a few days before the wedding and had the pleasure to work with him during our ceremony. Our other photographer was Charlie and he was just as fantastic. They were both very e
  2. Sky girl- Yes blue/turquoise is very popular…it just looks so beautiful in “paradiseâ€. -I think the Ocean view Master suite will be just fine. The only next step up is a presidential suite and that supposed to have a kitchen which is totally unnecessary when its all inclusive food and drinks! -I had Welcome Bags for all of our guests that had a “Wedding Weekend Survival Kitâ€, DR Postcard and a welcome letter. Within the welcome letter it had some kind words and details about the upcoming events. This being: Welcome Gathering, The actual wedding and then after out

  4. NOWBride2013, We looked into other DJs, but the resort DJ seemed fair priced compared to others. Again, we were surprised with them. We never met with them- just filled out a paper with songs for specific dances (our dance, parent dance, cake cutting, and other songs we wanted play). It was a brief list and we just had to give it to Mercy who scanned it and emailed it to them. There were a few cheesy s ongs during dinner (like Lady in Red, but the older folks loved it) but after dinner, we didn’t say anything and they played awesome dance music and we all had a blast! If you have

  7. Hi Skygirl- We did pay per head extra for the champagne toast and the cocktail hour- however, we did not pay extra for the cake. I remember reading some other posts on here saying it was not necessary because the cake is large enough and there are other desserts offered. And this was very true. With 35 people, you will definitely be fine with the original cake. The preferred club DOES exist. These rooms are closer to the ocean side. I really wanted a larger balcony that overlooked the ocean and more space because I knew a lot of my girls would be getting ready in our room the day
  8. Hi Ladies, I had my wedding at NOW Larimar on Friday, June 22, 2012. Our ceremony was at the Main Fountain and we chose to have the wooden walkway built. It is a $1500 charge but it includes the decorations for it and I am so glad we chose to do it! We also had our reception at Castaways. I had requested it to be there however, the second we reserved our date which was over 9 months before the wedding. We had 55 guests and they seemed to have a blast. My husband and I have been to the DR 3 times before and have stayed at other resorts under Amresorts (Dreams Palm Beach and Punta Ca
  9. Thanks Skygirl. We are expecting approximately 60-80 people to attend (40 alone with just immediate family and bridal party + significant other). We are more than likely leaning towards NOW, and this thread has really helped us believe that this would be the best choice for us. Our original date was set in June and we hope to be able to keep the same date if possible (where ever we decide). We are in the process of communicating with Claribel; but as we all know, planning from another country takes patience since it takes quite some time for responses. Thanks for your feedback and support
  10. Hi Ladies! I am new to this forum and would really appreciate any feedback, suggestions, recommendations, etc from you all. We are thinking about changing our wedding resort location to NOW Larimar and are hesitant about doing so since we have never been. We had actually booked with another resort in Punta Cana, put down a deposit, sent out our save-the-dates and everything. Our TA helped us price out everything based on 2011 prices for our guests, and we just met with her yesterday and they are astronomical. We want people to actually come to the wedding and would feel horrible
