as for dance, Carolina said no to Mark and I having our first dance at the restaurant, but she has suggested the gazebo or beach for this, which could be fun. I guess we just bring a CD player, some drinks and party under the stars

FYI, you can't pick your music for the reception unless you book the whole place.
Unless you hijack the CD player behind the bar, which is what we did, but there is no guarantee....this is also how we managed to do our first dance at the reception.

Is everyone all booked already?
What resorts are you staying at?

It seems like the Bavaro is the most popular and expensive resort but I don't know, I think they will all be great.
Hi Trina,
Don't worry about the sections too much. The Palace is actually the pricier section I believe (unless you really upgrade to the Royal Section) , but in the resort, you can't tell where one section starts and the other one begins unless you look at a map....it is all open. We even had guests that booked with us in the bavaro section, but b/c of room availability, they were given rooms in the PC section or the Palace section. It is a slight pain in the bum when you are not super close together, but we all booked in the Bavaro, so it would really need to be an issue negotiated at check in if someone gets sent to another section. But you can walk (15 min) or take the train (5min) from one end of the resort to the other. Good luck with your decision.

Good luck also figuring out your package! My BM and MOH both flew from Vancouver (I'm in Ottawa) and their package pricing was about $500 more expensive b/c they are on the westcoast. We paid 1665/week, taxes in and they were quoted about 2100. They ended up taking the scenic tour down south with 3 flights and 20 hours of travel (not recommended), to save $400...they said they would not do that again b/c they ended up losing 2 full days due to the travel.

Good luck too to all the other brides struggling with Carolina's replies etc. The frustration will all be worth it when you are marrying your FI surrounded by tropical flowers and the sound of the oceansmile03.gif

Yes the private reception will cost $1000 US.I think this is only worth it if your having alot and alot of guest. IMO 30 guest and under isn't worth it.

Hello there,

 

I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium on April 19th, 2010. Carolina booked us for 10am and I'm a little worried about this as I would like the wedding to be later during the day. Do any of you know if it's possible to change the time? Also, I haven't seen any cake pictures except for the white one with roses...are there any other ones? Thanks!

Hi! Congrats and welcome! I don't think it's possible to switch time unless it's due to the judge. I wanted a later ceremony but got stuck with 2:30pm (right when it's really hot) so count yourself lucky it's still early not to be to hot!
I think there is another cake you can pick from (Carolina will give you 2 or 3 different pictures of cakes) you choose from there, if you want to upgrade your cake for an extra charge it can be done.If you have an idea try find a picture, bring it down with you. If your willing to pay the extra fee's I'm sure Carolina will get the chef to make you want you want!

Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself :) I heart NS!! smile03.gif lol

 

You girls are so lucky you know your ceremony time, Carolina told me I wouldn't find out until we got there sad.gif I just emailed her and asked her again, so if I hear from in about 2 weeks, maybe she'll let me know.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
