Thanks @Sherylh and Congratulations to you too!! Your idea with the flowers sounds beautiful :D

 

My colors are peacock but without the feathers! No feathers allowed! LOL Blues and greens.

 

I think I'm going to make menu's as well...it adds a little something extra.cheers.gif

How do you know what flowers are available? I received pictures from my coordinator but she did not specifically say what flowers are available.

 

Anyone have pictures of their centerpieces?

Hello everyone, I am Natalie and my fiance and I are trying to plan out wedding for the summer of 2013 in Punta Cana. We were looking at Barcelo before but we are inquiring with Dreams PC now. I have been in contact with wedding coordinator Carolina but we have not been able to get an exact date. I want to have a Catholic ceremony in June but I've already requested 2 dates and the priest is available either too early or too late (3pm or 7pm). Is anyone else having a Catholic ceremony and had issues with time? I also see there are a couple of July brides and I was curious about whether it is more expensive to book flight&hotel during July which is high peak? I look forward to being able to share with u guys on this forum.

mdf1us, it's my undertsanding that you can pretty much request any flowers, but it may cost you extra dependind on whether they are in season or not. I was actually planning on sending her a few pictures and asking her if they may be able to do those arrangements and depending if the flowers are in season, or not, I think i will just substitute them with similar flowers in order to save some money.

 

Grace, the peacock colors sound amazing!!! I have seen a lot of different ideas where they use peacock colors and it looks great and yes the menus will definitely add something extra to the table.

congratulations nrbc919! Very exciting =)

 

At first I wanted to have a Catholic Ceremony as well but found that it's too much of a hassle to go through all the different requirements so my fiance and I are going to have a civil ceremony in California a few months before the wedding in Punta Cana and once we are there we will just have a symbolic ceremony. I think this may be the easiest route if you are ok with it not being religious. I was actually thinking of having a friend of ours do a reading in order to add a little bit of scripture to it. Good luck!

Thanks for the tip Sherylh! A symbolic wedding will be my last resort but I'm going to see if I can get a good date and time for a catholic ceremony if not then symbolic it is.

I wanted hydrangeas but Deyanira (my coordiantor) told me that they were more expensive and wilt very fast there because of the weather.The flowers that do not have additional fees are roses, gerberas, birds of paradise and margaritas.

aww boo, ok I guess that makes sense... I'm not really all that picky as far as what flowers are used I just want to make sure the colors are similar to the color scheme I am using. I love hydrangeas and peonies =( but oh well. I have also been in contact with Deyanira but I haven't heard from her in a few days, how long is her response time when you e-mail her? I'm just nervous that she isn't responding = / also when you filled out the reservation form with a copy of your credit card information did you have any issues? How often do they charge your credit card and are they good about providing receipts? My wedding is so far away but I feel this sense of urgency in having all these questions answered, for my own peace of mind...

 

Thanks!!!!

@ sherylh WELL ... I have never gotten a reciept..even though I've asked for one! I printed all of my email communication with the resort and have my bank statements to show what I've been charged so far. I plan to bring it with me.

 

At first, I found myself emailing her questions almost everyday... so what I do now is I put together a word document and outline my questions. She replys right under my questions.. It takes her a few days but that way I get all of my answers at once.

 

I started planning 10 months out so I had similar feelings BUT once I got my questions answered I felt better. I met her in person this past January when I went for the weekend and we went through everything for my personal sanity!

 

LOL let me know how else I can help.

Thank you! That sounds like a good idea, I think I need to let go of a little control here (although it's in my nature and it's sooo hard, lol). I think once we actually begin all the planning I will definitely need to create a system in order to ensure that I have proof of payment and whatnot. I read somewhere that they require you to pay everything upon arriving at the resort but can you just make payments and then pay the final bill when you're there so it won't be one large sum? Also I think you mentioned you were going to have cocktails on the terrace, do they charge an extra fee to use that area? or is it just the cost per person? Thanks again, because I'm sure I will have TONS more questions as time goes by, hahaha

    • 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?
