My bridesmaid and I both had our hair done there, and both of our styles looked amazing, and very very close to what we picked out!  My bridesmaid was more intricate, she had a french braid down behind her ear and then it was curled and stuff, mine was mostly a poof in front with all the curls piled in the back... I STRESSED about my hair before I went, but when I got there it just didn't matter as much anymore! :)

HI Jenny,

It was our WC that confirmed the availability of the judge, since that was actually the determining factor for setting our wedding date and time.

I think it probably took about a 1.5 weeks for us to receive the confirmation. I was starting to get a bit worried, so I actually called them at the resort.

Hope this helps.

Jenn

Does anyone happen to have email addresses for the front office manager or director of rooms? We are arriving to DPC next week. My fiance works in the hotel industry and wanted to contact them prior to arrival to set some things up.

 

Also a bride who recently got married at DPC posted a ton of pictures on the Dreams Punta Cana Brides Facebook page. She has pictures of her ceremony at the Gazebo,  professional beach shots and of her reception on the Himitsu Terrace.

I didn't do a review... I know shame on me! sad.gif I just never got around to it... If you are looking for any type of pictures in particular PM me and I will send some your way! rolleyes.gif  As far as my hair, I could describe both of them and I'm sure there aren't two girls who do hair who look the same as them!  PS: The spa does AMAZING work for pedicures/manicures... one of the girls in there did my french manicure on my toes the day before leaving, and she did it FREEHAND, no tracing, nothing and it stayed on for so long, longer than any pedicure I've had in Canada!

Hi Jenny, when we were going to do the civil ceremony, it took about 3 weeks, and of course I was freaking out lol but the WC really will get back to you as soon as she knows :) Rest assured!

I see someone posted the email for the concierge... the head of concierge's name is Aida Cabrera (it was in June anyway!) and she is AMAZING to deal with... we arranged to have a cake, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, a banner and balloons in my MOH's room (a small fee for the champagne and chocolates of course), and she had it DONE :)  I should add that we arrived at midnight, and it was all in there before she got there, fresh and the champagne was cold!  AMAZING!

I cannot believe I am 30 days away (24 days until we arrive there)!  Eeeek!!!  My bachelorette party is this weekend and I cannot wait!  We are pretty much done except for printing out the programs (the programs are complete just have yet to hit print) and printing out the individual table cards for our guests.  A few more people who responded "no" are now coming so our count is slowly creeping up! 

 

We booked through Costco Travel (I know, I was shocked they had the lowest price at the time) and recently decided to upgrade to Privileged and it was $2,200.  I said no thank you and e-mailed Dreams and it is $60 a night.  I cannot believe Costco wanted $2,200.  I was shocked! 

 

I am unloading some things on one bridesmaids to bring down since she has silver status with the airline and her checked bags are free!  My FH and I are just bringing down our wedding day apparel and OOT bag items -- everything else is being brought down by the parents or the one bridesmaid.  My mom went to Salvation Army and purchased a carry-on luggage piece for $5 so she is just going to give it to someone down there or toss it!  After our Punta Cana trip we fly straight to Saint Martin on a private plane so our luggage limit is very very low.  Luckily our two luggage sets fit into each other so we are likely to be traveling with just two carry-on sized pieces or one larger piece (and sending what we do not need home to the US) -- I guess all I need are swimsuits and dresses though! 

 

Does anyone know how strict the resort is with the dress code?  My brother-in-law called me yesterday and asked if nice sandals are allowed or does he need to bring closed-toe shoes.   

 

Alright, I guess that is my update for now.  I originally planned to have my planning journal completed before I leave but I do not think that I will have time to take pictures of everything since some things are at my parent's house 2 hours away.

 

Almost there!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
