    if your inviting that many people and your scared of too many of them actually coming, you might just want to invite immediate fam and friends and have a reception when u get home and invite everyone!

    but you know ur people, is pretty easy to tell who will come out of the bunch!

      Hey ladies, yes our thread has been quiet I too was suprised to have to go to page 2 lol.... I can't wait to hera Jocy's review when she gets back, then I think next up will be Erin.

      I invited a lot of people actually thinking that most would not come , but to our surprise alot of people made deposits however I will update you ladies even after people make deposits if they haven't bought there airfare yet, they may still change there minds, we have had people cancel and lose there deposit. Airfare is really high right now and that has change some guest plans. so now we are down to around 50 people I wouldn't even mind if went down to 40 so then I can have my reception on the bordeaux terrace lol... but seriously people are willing to lose $50 dollars if they are no longer able to pay for there trip.

        yeah its true... on that note, I had my best friend tell me there was no way she could afford it still, since she had a wage change and new bills.... I'm sad about that! But she is losing $150 + the cost of her bm dress.... yikes

          Hi Ladies!!

          We just got back last night from 2 weeks at DPC...our wedding was on the 22nd.
          We did the beach ceremony as well as our reception on the beach. Everything was FANTASTIC! Our WC was Sharron and when we got there on the Sunday we saw her Monday morning everything was organized in an hour. We had fantastic weather and all our guests had a blast. The only thing I would sugjest if you have children with you is to have their main entree come out at the same time as the apetizer. The beach ceremony was done by Sharron and she did tell us in advance that the judge deals with all of Punta Cana weddings so he may not be there in time. He came at 630pm and we signed all our paperwork then. The ceremony was to start at 5pm but the wedding before us went late so it was at 530pm...which was fine because it was so hot with the high sun. The beach reception set up was BEAUTIFUL!! Everything that I dreamed of. Dinner went a little long so we didn't do lots of dancing..no big deal to us..we all went to the disco afterwards. All the bridesmaids hair was just what I wanted for them and I loved my hair and makeup also. I had a trial run with the hairstylist the night before and it put me at ease. They spay your hair tons so don't worry about the heat getting to it:)

          Tam I did see your siter at the disco on the Wednesday night. My MOH saw her also and they talked for a bit. I saw your pics, they turned out awesome:)

          I am going to post some photos on Dreams FB...anything you want to know just ask:)

            Also.....treasure every second of your special day because it goes by so fast!!!!
            I wish I could live it over again:)

            The room we had was a prefered Junior suite and it was so beautiful. The maids came twice a day to tidy and give you fresh towels. Our wedding night the maid made a wedding dress out of a sheet on the bed and put pretty flowers all over the place..it was a nice touch.
            We also used the in room babysitting the week our family was away ans our sitter was so great..we are keeping in touch and she cried when we had to leave...our son just loved her...she even brought us a cake one night and sent one the night before we left.
            We are already talking about going back next year:)
