    So I am officially booked for April 28, 2011!

    I ended up emailing Carolina again today since it was 5 days I last heard from her and was getting nervous that maybe she didn't get my email. So I put "wedding confirmation" in the subject and she responded within an hour! I was so excited!!!!

    So she sent me an "agreement" form and told me to mail it. So where does it get mailed to? And what did you all do when it asked for the number of guests? We really have no idea how many people will come so what should we put for number of guests?

    I am sooo happy right now! Our stay at the resort is booked and Carolina confirmed our date... I feel like so much weight has been lifted off of my shoulders!

    *sorry for all of the exclamation marks! I am just SUPER excited now!*

      Woo Hooo!!!!!!!!!!!! Thats so exciting!!!

      I don't think I even filled out that thing she sent me, and I def wouldn't mail it. I would fill it out and email it back to her, I wouldn't trust the postal system.
      At the time we booked we had 24 people, so I told her that and then put that I thought more would book as we got closer. Just tell her that because about 2-3 weeks before your wedding she will email you and ask for the number of guests, their names and your reservation number, which you can get from your TA and actually means nothing to you, well. it didn't to me. lol

          I feel like I don't have anything to ad - haha, this sucks. BUT I leave in 1.5 weeks! woot! I'm excited -- Carolina has been amazing with emailing me lately.

          Carribbeanlover -- for HDC, did you give him an idea of some shots you want? I looked at some pictures and there are some artistic ones that I really want! Should I send this to him before hand?

          Also -- regarding the menus (I may have asked you this but I forget), I saw in one of your pics that they had a menu with your names on it. Did you do this and bring it? Or did Carolina do it for you? I want this and I don't mind doing it before hand -- we alreayd know what we want.

            I used HDC, and had Mijlan shot for us... and could not have been more impressed with the quality of photos and professionalism. He met in my room at about 2:30 to shot me getting ready befor the ceremony. He captured every moment perfectly. After the ceremony he shot my wedding party on the beach, as well as some group shots with our family and guests befor taking shots alone of my husband and I on the beach, beside palm trees and laying in the grass... beautiful pictures, he had great posing ideas and was very easy and comfortable to work with. We had originally only booked with HDC for 3 hours, but since we had a break for dinner befor our reception (to do the cake cutting and frist dance) he offered to extend to the 5 hr and leave durnig dinner to get his tri-pod to come back for the reception.. which we agreed too... he ended up staying well past the 5 hrs and mingled with all of us during the reception- it was great!!
            Our package including the deposit was about $1500. We received a photo book with 200 pictures, 100 (5x11) prints, 30 (8x12) prints- we also received all photos(more than 600) and rights on cd... WELL worth the cost.. I dont have anything but good words for HDC. We met with Arnaud twice later during the week and he is so kind.

                She didn't get back to me with whether or not they were getting booked up already for Jan. I guess I will just hurry up and decide and then hope one of the dates we want is available.

                I checked out the HDC site last night and I actually got a bit emotional with how beautiful the pictures are...along with the music. I've heard Micheal is good as well, but haven't checked out his stuff yet.
                It's safe to book, I say if anything the price will change by no more then $100-200 for the entire package. But again I doubt it.

                HDC is wonderful!! I am so blown away by our photo's I couldn't ask for anything more, def no more photo's then we already got (300 ceremony, 100 TTD)
                The difference between HDC and Michael, is the price.
                Let us know what you pick!!

                  I got my certificate a month after my wedding. It was wayy quicker then I thought!

                  I doubt that the prices will change for the wedding packages, I'm sure Tracy already said, we were both sent packages with the 2008-2009 prices and thats what we paid this year so I don't think it would have gone up, if it did she would email you and let you know. It wouldn't be more then $200 I would say.

                  Carolina will do those menus up for you!!!! We were sooo surprised that she did that!! Its such a nice keepsake :)

                    Hey did you have to do anything special with the certificate? I translated with the consulate, but then I found out it needed to be translated by a certified translator of the gov. So now I have to go pay another $70 and then write a letter to the gov asking them to 'file' out certificate and then pay another $15 to get a 'quebec' certificate in case someone down the road asked us for it!!
                    HOW ANNOYING especially when I first called the gov. to find out who needed to translate it...I made 3 different calls and got 2 different answers. 1 was it didn't matter by who, the second was they didn't know!!! So I just translated by the ppl I knew. But that was wrong, and wasted $40!!!!!!

                    Yes the menu was sooo cute, and a very nice keepsake, I have it in my wedding memory box lol

                      I went on the vital statistics Nova Scotia website and called them to see what they had to say, they gave me another number to the province and they gave me a number to a guy to translate it, that was it, we don't register the marriage here because it was legally done in DR. So I just had to get it tranlated to change my driver's license and my health card and my banking stuff. The lady I spoke to with the province said when we file our taxes next year just be sure to tell them your married now.

                      Kinda werid though, I thought there would be more to it.

                      Call vital statistics Quebec, they would be the ones you would get a marriage license though if you were getting married here.
