  1. I am thinking about having my reception on the boat. Just wondering if anyone has experienced any extra charges/hidden charges outside of your quotes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Just got the email that my dress is in ....... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. On trip advisor they have also stated that overbooking has been a problem. I hope my group does not run into this because my guest will not be happy. Thank you @@Potter8 & @@KaDeidra262 for the information it is very helpful. Did either of you decide to do OOT bags ?
  4. We have the honeymoon Jacuzzi suite but many of my guest are staying in swim up rooms. I think I would love the ocean front one. Did you wear shoes for the beach ceremony ? I think flip flops and then heels for reception if we don't have it on the beach Sent from my HTCONE using Tapatalk
  5. Working on getting content ( straw hats from dollar tree, plastic double wall tumbler dollar tree, nail polish remover pads Walgreens) for my bags now if anyone is willing to share templates please forward to stewarjs2@yahoo.com Thank you
  6. @@KaDeidra262 when I saw Opa I thought no way...lol I am happy to hear it was great. I chose the under the sea restaurant. My bill is due since I am 45 days away. It has the location fee and the open bar charge. Did you pay and get a refund or did you refuse to pay for the open bar up front. I have asked about locations near bars that will be open from8-10pm but she never gives me any. In one email Laura told me that she was going to visit the property soon!
  7. @@KaDeidra262 Congrats on the wedding! I hope everything was amazing. What are some of the things you changed once you arrived ? Did you get legally married in D.R ? I am still debating if we are going to do the legal ceremony before or after the trip.
  8. So I have my rant for the day .... I am forced to pay for a bar $500.00 for my reception (20 people) that I do not want, they say if I do not get the bar I cannot have the reception. We are all staying at the Royalton which is all inclusive. Why do I need to pay again! Frustrated. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. I forget who is using vacation expression but my travel agent told me that a welcome reception is included for Groups. I think it would be great if everyone added cost after you have sent your payment off. I definitely will do this my payment is due may 12th Sent from my HTCONE using Tapatalk
  10. @@Potter8 how is planning going ? Have you finalized any prices with Laura yet ? She told me full payment was due 45days before my trip. I am now trying to decide on entertainment.
  11. Potter8 I suggest giving it a try and if she says no ask her to escalate and send your request to the supervisor. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. @@ShawnaV do you mind giving us details on your wedding. Breakdown of cost for the wedding. Which package did you choose and what did you pay extra for. Thank you So Much for your post. Sent from my HTCONE using Tapatalk
  13. @@blueyes80 were you planning to use vacation express ? The packages do not include fabric for the gazebo or aisle runners ? The hard rock is the next hotel over from the royalton. Do they offer packages if you are not a guest at their hotel ? I finally sent Laura an email stating that I need to get concrete pricing so that we can prepare to pay when we arrive. She wrote back stating that full payment is expected 45 days in advance. She sent me a list of questions to get started. I have emailed her so many times and this is my first time hearing about this. It's not a problem, just annoying.
  14. @@GingerJ228. Ha thank you for thinking of me. I found it at David's bridal on February 17th ...FINALLY. They told me that the absolute latest it will be in is June 8th and we leave June 26th. I've decided I'm not going to worry about it. I'm going to worry about hitting the gym to lose my extra pounds. I think I ordered a strapless mermaid dress to push myself to hit the gym. Oh and it's satin ! I broke all the rules lol.
