i got a couple of those vague answers too... but i can't imagine how hard it is to work mostly with people who speak a completely different language! i love that we've all learned to number our questions and make them very clear!

 

toya, i keep watching for you guys to get better buffet prices! for some reason it bothers me that with all those extra people they charge you so much more!

 

i got my date confirmed on la barcaza last night!!!! the amazing flori asked the other group that wanted that day to move to the day before so she could accomodate our reception. i want the address of the people who changed so i can send them flowers! :)

Hope you are all having a great time plannig there as well! Take care!

I have heard very good things about the Bordeaux Terrance as well and from the pictures I've seen it's really beautiful over looking the water ;o) That is where we decided to hold our cocktail party / welcome party!
Beachgirl,
Did you reserve a restaurant for your welcome party or do they section a part of the restaurant off for you? How many people do you have?

Toya,

I think the dinner and cocktails are separate so it's $51/extra person for both.

 

I will try to figure out how to upload pics of my mugs this weekend...

 

I haven't decided whether or not to use the hair salon yet, don't need the makeup part as one of my guests is a makeup artist.. if it's easy, I will do my own..

Tam your right it is $51 together, this is why I need to make sure that includes the cake and champange or is that extra too. if its not included then thats $51 plus the $6.30 per extra slice of cake

Ok ladies, I am feeling like I've been had. I am not impressed right now, since this is the first time I have heard about some of these things. Check out the answer to #4.

 

I will post all of the questions I asked, so that we can see what I was told as well!

 

1. Does the $15 setup fee apply to the wedding ceremony, the reception, or both? Or neither? Just for receptions on the beach or Santo Domingo Plaza.

 

2. After 10 people (since I am taking the free package), what is the charge for sparkling wine per person? Each additional bottle of champagne has a cost of US$15.00

3. In the free package, are chair covers included for the ceremony and reception? Yes, it includes white covers for chairs and table for the ceremony. The free package does not includes reception. If you decide to have a dinner package, it will include white covers for chairs and tables.

 

4. Is the Gold dinner package $490 USD as shown on the website, or is it $40 per person as stated in the information booklet? I don't see a price for 20 people in the booklet. The Gold dinner is US$800.00 for 2010 up to 20 guests and each additional guest pays US$40.00

 

5. If I have more than 20 people at the reception dinner, am I charged a $15 setup fee for each person? If having the reception on the beach or Santo Domingo plaza yes.

6.For the meal, is the 15% gratuity included in the price, or is it in addition to the price as shown? 26% (taxes and services) is included in 2010 rates.

 

7. If for some reason we decided to switch to a symbolic ceremony, are we able to do this? Yes What is the cut-off date, and are we charged a cencellation fee?

 

The wedding can be cancelled six or more months prior to the confirmed date without penalties. If the wedding is cancelled within six months, the non-refundable deposit will be kept as a penalty. If the wedding is cancelled, but the couple still travels as planned, the deposit can then be applied toward any additional room charges made during their stay.

 

 

 

8. If we do a symbolic ceremony, is there a "souvenir" certificate we could sign in front of our guests? No. Our guests will not know that our ceremony is symbolic if we choose to do it this way. They do not have to know that the ceremony is symbolic. Sometimes the Judge is late since we just one Judge who is performing weddings in about 50 resorts, in those we can perform symbolic ceremonies and then sign with the Judge upon his arrival (normally in the office, just the couple and the witnesses) so you could say that you will be signing with the Judge later.

 

9. If we choose to do a symbolic ceremony, can we still have our date of July 2, 2010 and change it to an earlier time of day? Yes, based on the availability.

10. Is the charge for the huppah still $150 if we only want the tulle (or white linens, what ever it is you use on it)? We would just want the basic, no flowers or anything! :) Yes, US$150.00 just with white fabric and no flowers.

 

Soooo... yeah. The cost of the 'effing reception at the resort is looking more and more expensive!! The worst part is, the website says $490 and below say that it is effective for 2010. I am so confused, back to the drawing board again!censored.gifcensored.gifcensored.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
