i'd definitely do this! print out the email she sent with the picture you attached and make sure it's no more than $350. honestly, i think the $350 includes flowers. their centerpieces are $90 (!!!!!!!) and i have to believe that they've got this setup and the fabric hanging around some where and if you don't add any extras they just put it up and take down the arch. maybe that's wishful thinking though? :) i plan on asking my WC (once one gets assigned to me) what the price will be w/out flowers and then i'll let you guys know!

Thanks ash! Yea I think I'll be okay for my date. I was thinking to put it in November, outside of hurricane season but I don't want to wait that long to be married and I like the thought of celebrating my anniversary in summer rather than winter. Having said that, I still haven't put it together yet! There is something really daunting about it...or maybe I am on BDW too much and never get around to it :P Gonna try and tackle it now.

Finally booked the hotel....it was crazy, but we did it!

Dreams Punta Cana here we come....Jan16-23. Even got the wedding date I wanted, but now I still need to decide whether to have a civil or symbolic... leaning towards symbolic this time...would just be much easier...and cheaper!

any thoughts??

Congrats Tam!!! In my opinion, it would be a lot less of a head ache (just because of all the paper work and extra money) to go with the symbolic. However, if you are set on getting "legally" married in front of family and friends at Dreams, I would say go for civil. Honestly, I would love to just go get married today at the court house and then do a symbolic ceremony while I was down in Punta Cana, BUT my family and his family are going there because they want to see us get married, and we want them to be there for the actual thing too! So we are going for civil. It's whatever you feel is right for the both of you!

I agree with you, Ash!! We went back and forth between a symbolic and a civil ceremony, and finally we have decided on the civil. Although it is much less headache to do a symbolic, we wanted our wedding anniversary (as everyone knew it) to be that day. It wouldn't make it any less special, but we also had to intention of not telling anyone we go married before. We decided that we didn't want to deceive our family, so we are going with civil.. haha! But if your parents and family and guests are aware that it is a renewal of vows so to speak, and are still willing to come and are ok with it, I would go with that!!

Heeyyy Nat,

I didn't do my own I use a company called Pink Design Monograms, her designs are soo cute here's her website Pink Design Events - Stylish Stationery Design she is actually on maternity leave right now but will be back soon. I've seen a couple other brides on here use her services as well.

Hey does anyone know if you bring a DJ can you rent equipement from the resort ? I don't want to use the resort DJ because if he is not good I will be very upset. I though about using DJ Mannia but I don't want to pay him 800 and have never heard his dj'ing skills. I'd rather pay my own DJ to come and i know exactly how he sounds. We both love good music. what do you all think ?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
