Hi Eliana!

We were considering doing the whole thing (ceremony and reception) on the beach but have since changed our minds about both! I was getting nervous that we'd have too many nosey and/or naked unwanted people at our beach ceremony, so we are trying to get the gazebo instead. I LOVED it when I saw it in the pictures initially but told myself we were getting married on the beach. The other thing we were talking about was how the point of the beach wedding/reception was to near sand and water, but we didn't want to chance a windy day and have sand in our food. Also, once the sun goes down, you can't see the water anyway...

 

I went to a wedding at Secrets Capri and the bride had her ceremony and reception on the beach. It was fun!! But there were definitely some drawbacks. People who are drinking had a hard time walking and balancing in the sand, things were lost in the sand (like the grooms wedding band! Long story...), and I think it didn't necessarily ADD anything to the wedding. It would have been just as fun and beautiful wherever it was. The sand only made it slightly annoying...

 

Just my two cents on what I've experienced!

eliana, i've heard a lot of people say that it gets pretty breezey/chilly on the beach once the sun goes down. we're doing our ceremony there and have heard that there really aren't privacy issues and the people nearby don't bother anyone, but for the reception i'm not sure. honestly, i don't think i've heard of anyone in the last year who's had their reception on the beach. you could be the first BDW girl to do it :)

 

just got another response from deyanira and she upped the huppah price on me! i was quoted $150 before without any flowers or extra decorations besides the fabric and this time she said $175. i emailed her back to double check so i'll let everyone (nat!) know.

fastest deyanira response on record! just got 2 emails within about 15 minutes... i sent her the email i had saying that the flower-less huppah was $150 and she said that rate was good. also goes to show that i think they really do prioritize email communication based on the proximity of your wedding date. trust me, i was there before. i booked this time last year and was desperate for any response!

 

nat, i don't know if you have something from her saying that price, but make sure you print it and bring it with you. good thing to know they'll honor the prices!

I have a question for everyone in regards to the photographs that are included in the Dreams Ultimate package. The description of the package states that 50 photos and a DVD of the ceremony are inlcuded. When I asked the WC about this she stated that the photos are only during the ceremony itself and that photos before or after would be extra and she sent me the information on the three photography packages. This seems weird to me.....50 photos of a 10 minute ceremonyhuh.gif? Then the Bronze photography package includes ceremony photos and a half hour photo session with 50 pictures. Isn't this a little redundant if we are already paying for photos in the wedding package? I am totally confused..... can anyone help me?

Hey Jaime,

 

I agree about it being redundant. I asked Deyanira and she told me the same thing, that the pics where just of the ceremony. You're supposed to have time to meet with the photog after you meet with the WC so I'm going to ask him and double check what she is saying is correct.

 

If this is the case, I'll end up purchasing the additional package (don't remember which one but it's the $2000 one) so I can have pictures of me getting ready and the reception.

 

Let me know if anyone has heard any other information. I'd be interested to hear how many stories are going around.

Hi Eliana,

Your photographers package sounds extremely reasonable. How did you book him? Can you give me any more information? Only 4 weeks till I go and need to get this sorted. Resort photographer or not?

Whats everyone else doing??

 

Thanks

Catherine

    • 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?
