Tell me about it! That first coordinator was making me REALLY nervous, she would contradict herself and then have me all confused. I dont think she ever had a clue, lol! I am still a little anxious, but Grisele seems to be willing to answer all my millions of questions I have for her. I have just come to grasp with the response time, so I'm more patient about that now.

Initially, I was like wtf.gif, communication via email should NOT take that long!!! But I guess I am spoiled due to the fact that anyone I ever email in the US usually responds within 48 hrs, lol. But I realized not only are they on 'island time', the coordinators are also planning other weddings and dealing with the guests that are at the actual resort.

Hang in there, you'll get used to it elefant.gif

Thank you for you replies. It makes me feel better knowing that I'm not the only one waiting for responses. My fience was actually able to get a hold of her by phone last week and was able to get answers to some of my questions.

 

While I'm waiting for the reply, I'm going to start addressing my envelops... I'm so excited.

Hi Everyone,

 

I just wanted to send you all a quick responce and let you know that I arrived back from the Edenh real arena resort the other day and attended my sisters wedding there. The whole experience was just awesome. I can not say enough about the WC they have hired. She is just amazing and once you meet her you will forgive her about not replying as quickly as you would like. I know my sister did. She is very busy because she pays attention to every little detail and ensures a fantastic day for her brides. The wedding was beautiful, they had the wedding on the beach and the nice thing about this resort is the wedding spot is down the beach a little so it is not where everyone is sun bathing. So although you do get people coming and watching the ceremony it is not everyone being noisy and drunk. The photographer is amazing, he takes great photos (but he does not speak alot of english), so if you want specific poses, make sure to have copies of these and show the WC at your meeting because he is likely to not understand, however, he does great posing himself and the photos turned out to be more then my sister could ask for. The hair salon is good on site, 3 of us got our hair done there. A little pricey it was $80.00 for each, and the bride got her hair and nails done and it was $140. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I am going to try and post my pics of tripadvisor later today. Aloha

Thank you so much for posting your reply. My mind is somewhat eased about this whole destination wedding thing! Congrats to the first EdenH Bride on her marriage and her courage for taking on a new resort. Any info in terms of flowers, please forward. Thanks. It woud be great if your sister could join this forum so we could all bombard her (LOL). Just joking (not really). No really, just joking. All the best! Cheers.

I just wanted to know if anyone got a clear answer on the minister/judge? My aunt is performing the ceremony, and she's an ordained pastor. When I met with Grisel this past week, she never mentioned anything about having a judge there. I am just spazzing out for nothing?

 

 

Also, another thing. Does anyone know a good videographer for a wedding? I've already hired a photographer to fly down, but to get a Videographer is too much money. anyone have any ideas?

WHAT!!! I was under the impression that a minister wasnt required for a symbolic ceremony. How much extra $ are we talking? What package are you referring to? I am about to go girl_werewolf.gif, lol.

BTW, I updated the list of EdenH brides, there are now 9 of us!!! pinkie.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
