i actually have a smaller party and really love the el patio terrace. i'm hoping whoever else is getting married the same day as me wants the bordeaux.. that seems to be the favorite! there was a girl on here not too long ago that had my same date, but she's having a wedding at home now... the selfish part of me is glad that i will have 1 less person gunning for my location!! :)

i was originally doing a legal ceremony and they said you have to wait until about 11 - 12 months ahead of time for the judge to confirm. you should find something out soon... they'll send you an email with your confirmation number and everything! be sure to keep that!!

ebredhawk- yeah I'm about 10 months out now, actually 10 months to the day tomorrow! I hope I hear back soon, this is torture! haha

 

lrdavis- thanks for that, I hope we are able to do it in advance, that would be one less thing to worry about!!

Autumn1- I'm putting in some travel size aloe bottles, some individually wrapped shout wipes (that I bought on the forum!), a beach towel, Spanish for Dummies handbook... I will have to see, since I'm adding to it everyday, but in the category of OOT bags there is a master list compiled of MANY ideas for OOT bags, and people keep adding to it! That's where I'm getting some ideas, so you could go check that out :)

hmmm I havn't really thought about this yet .. I need to get moving, before I know it the wedding will be here and nothing will be done lol.... I will be making a list shortly of the things I want to put in my OOT bags. The thread with std's, invites, OOT bags has some good list on what to add to a OOT bag too.

I agree with ebredhawk, the bubba keg is ESSENTIAL!! You minimize your trips to the bar, since they often hold more than the little glasses they gove you... not to mention they stay cold A LOT longer!!

I am still shopping around for a punta cana resort...and this open bar information is very helpful. I have found that many of the resorts charge extra for an open bar at a private reception (e.g. majestic)...by the hour! So, having this inclusive at Dreams is a plus. Thanks again!! Very helpful!

the reception packages are really one of the main things that sold me on DPC. a lot of the other resorts offer "cake and food and champagne for 10 people" and charge even more per person for anything else. dreams, to me at least, seems to allow many more guests for a reasonable price and they offer several great options for receptions as well!

nsbride, i have no idea why, but i kept thinking that your date was in august!! glad to see your confirmed date now! have you heard anything about a judge confirmation yet?

not yet, but like we have seen before, sometimes the judge comes later (or even the day after) to sign the papers... hey, whatever works!! I haven't heard back from the judge though, it seems like its taking FOREVER! Can anyone give me a time frame when they got their date confirmed by the judge? I know they are super busy, so it can take some time... I just want to know HOW long I should wait before I get concerned?
