    Q&A’s from the wedding coordinator at dreams DR. They are a little choppy because I did some cut and past from a couple of emails.

    When should we send our documents?
    Please wait a little more to send the documentation. It is better to
    start two months before.

    The time for the ceremony is assigned by the local judge and the times
    that are currently available for our resort are 6, 7 and 8.
    What couples normally do is have some photos taken before the ceremony.
    At 6:15 PM is perfect for the beach ceremony though.

    Do we pick the reception site when we arrive and can you send me any pictures ahead of time?
    Yes. The location is confirmed at your arrival.

    Can I have a photographer that is staying at a different hotel come to the resort? Do I have to pay for him to be at the resort for the purpose of taking pictures and if so how much does it cost?
    The special price for wedding day passes is US $ 79 per person, for 12 hours.

    I haven’t made up my mind if I would like to have a dinner or cocktail hour. Where is the location for them? Are they held indoors or outdoors?
    The private events can be held in one of our outdoor terraces, on the beach or in a banquet room. Please find enclosed the menus for private dinners and cocktails.

    If I choose to have one of the dinners will the Caribbean music trio play for more then 1 hour for additional cost or is it limited to one hour?
    The price for the trio is US $ 200 per hour; they can play the hours you request.

    Is there ceremony music included or is that additional?
    For the ceremony there will be a CD player and speakers available (no extra cost). You can bring your own selection of music to be played.

    Does the extra 300usd for the beach ceremony include enough seating for 40 plus people and is there a cost flowers on the beach?
    The beach ceremony includes the set up (chairs with white covers) for the amount of people requested, the music and a floral arch.

        Thanks for the info, that answered a few of my questions! Do you happen to know anything about playing an IPod there? I know you can rent speakers, but do you happen to know if you need anything to connect the Ipod to?

          Yes, you can use an ipod but I am so not into electronics and have trouble figuring mine out. I leave all this stuff up to my FI. He has crazy adaptors for every thing I would ask the WC via email and still be prepared to bring adaptors just incase. Hope it works out for you!

            Thank you for the info! I'm hoping that we can make it work with the iPod! That would mean we have at least one thing set!!

              Just so you know ladies, I spoke with the WC and she confirmed that they have the adaptor for the ipod to be connected to the speakers. Hope this helps!
