How Long Did You Wait To Move Forward?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how long did you wait before moving forward with more plans. I have my initial confirmation from RIU Ocho Rios but in an email it stated that I will be receiving confirmation of the time I selected. I want to go ahead with a wedding website and save the dates but I am not sure if I need to wait for the second email.

 

What do you think? What did others do? Is that first confirmation enough to proceed?

 

Thanks,

I think the 2nd confirmation is for when the Officiant as confirmed that he will be available. The Riu may have the date available but they also have to confirm the Officiant. I say wait a day or 2 or call them to see what the hold up is. For now, just start doing some of the preliminary things like:

Getting the guest list together

Looking for the right invitations or save the date cards

Getting pics together for the website (wedding party pics, family pics, etc)

Read the forum (you'll get plenty of ideas!)

I started making my website, but didn't send it out to anyone until the date was confirmed. You can start designing your STDs, etc. That way once you have everything confirmed, you can send it all out right away.

once i had my confirimation number i sent allthe invites, and ordered my dress.

Then i slowly ordered allthe favors etc. Depending on how farout you are, I would say 2 months before you should have all the favors adn pre book your hair etc with the renova salon.

I would get started with the website and STD's and anything else that you can get a head start on b/c it will all catch up with you.

 

Just don't send out a link to the website or print anything until you are confirmed with the Officiant as well.

I'm getting married in the DR and I won't have a time until the judge decides which i'm told won't be for months. I just went ahead and sent out STDs, did my website, and will probably order invites soon.

I had the website built and the save the date prelim stuff (design and price) ready before I got my second confirmation.

 

It is never too early to plan what you would like to see happen (ie.. pictures and designs)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
