    Courtney,
    Did you say you were arriving Friday?
    I really want to book my package, still haven't heard from Carolina, so I figured I'd see what day your going and it'd probably be ok if we arrive the same day sorta thing.

      Hey CarribeanLover,
      I can't imagine that you will have a problem with your wedding date if I understand you correctly. There is no minimum amount of time you have to be in the Dr to get married - just what the resort likes and from my previous conversations - Carolina was pretty flexible. They just like to have the time to prepare once you're there. We are going on a Saturday and having our wedding on the Wednesday, but we were offered the Tuesday for a wedding day too, so you should be fine. But I know! It's hard when you just want to know 100% that it's alright!

        The new gazebo is absolutly beautiful....I tried to book it for my wedding, but Carolina told me that everything will be done once I'm there... I think she is doing it that way because there is another wedding on the Tuesday. I have a feeling it's first come first serve....guess I'll find out, I just don't want to be stuck with leftover, even though the leftovers are just as beautiful.....I'm stressing a little...lol

          Welcome to the stress club, shankd =) So many of us are finding it hard to just wait things out until we arrive at the Resort. I have emailed Carolina twice about booking my reception dinner and haven't heard back from her. I just have to assume that everything will end up perfectly regardless of this current lack of communication. We just have to try not to let it get to us! haha (sometimes easier said than done =) I know what you mean about ending up with leftovers, but I think because the resort is so big and shared with the Palace and Bavaro there should be plenty of amenities to suit all of us. Fingers crossed! haha

            thx for the words of encouragement....I'm not a big planner, thus why we decided to go away, but waiting till last minute is driving me to drink even though we are spontaneous and last minute people...lol Each and everyone of us wants it to be special and unique and I believe that the powers that be will let this happen.....;0, with a little help from Carolina!!!!!

              Does anyone know about the decorations of the ceremony? The package I have says there are chair covers, and I see them in pictures, but what about sashes??

                  Hi thanks for your reply! Actaully in my my package and Carolina has told me I had to be there 3 business days before the wedding (Sat and Sundays don't count) hence why I was so stress about the dates,I even read the laws of getting married in DR and it too says you hve to be there 3 business days. But I finally got my reply back from Carolina and she oked be arriving Saturday (I told her I would have my menu picked before arriving)
                  Are you getting married by the judge? or your just doing symbolic ceremony?
                  I know if your not doing legal ceremony you can be there 2 days before the wedding.
                  Thanks again! :)

                    Carribean Lover; We're getting married by a judge in the early afternoon, and then having our ceremony with Pastor Rick York later in the day. It seems like no one ever gets the same information! But I'm glad it worked out for you!

                    Is anyone else using a minister down there or is everyone using just the judge?

                    Nonnie: I emailed Carolina about the chair sashes, and yes, they do supply them, but you only have a choice of 3 colours: gold, emeral green or orange. I have pictures of them, so i will post them tonight when I get home. None of these are my wedding colours, but i think I will settle for something, as I don't want to go to the trouble to bring my own down there.

                      we are simply going with the judge, and having the legal wedding. We are to arrive on the sat and being married on the tuesday, Carolina told my TA that this is ok, so I'm going to run with it. I like the fact that my wedding is at the beginning of the trip, so the stress of the day, as easy as it is, can be done and over with to be able to do day trips for the rest of the week and hang out at the beach clear minded and able to celebrate for the rest of the week!!!
