    Thanks!  Our wedding coordinator was Gara. The slow service you get through email is no better when you arrive...just a warning!

     

    Smart move getting married at home.  Nobody will know; I didnt even realize we had not gotten legally married until the day after!

      Sorry about your wedding issues.  I am worried now about our wedding as we have Gara as our wedding coordinator also.  I will be printing out all e-mails sent back and forth confirming everything we have agreed upon.  It makes me nervous that they have a few weddings a day, what happens if it rains the day of the wedding? We will be having our reception on the Himitsu Terrace, but isn't there only one ballroom to have a wedding in?  Where do the other weddings go if it rains? 

       

      Also, can anyone let me know if they have used or is going to use Michael Weiler from Caribbean Emotions as their photographer?  Is using him better than going with the resort photographer?  I booked him already, just need to send the 20% to him, but wanted to make sure I'm doing the right thing.

            Thanks. Happy planning to you too. We'll be there from Apr 10-17 so probably end up seeing each other around the resort. Have you booked a photographer? This is the one thing that i'm not sure about. Not sure who the resort photographer is and if i need to book before we arrive.

              Alyssa, I will be using Michael Weiler as well and have heard nothing but wonderful things about him. If you go to the Dreams Punta Cana Brides group on Facebook you can see pictures & video that he did from a recent wedding. The pics & video are gorgeous! I have also heard from several people that he is super nice to work with.

                Regarding the rain, I told Gara that I was having my wedding in the sand regardless of rain.  We dealt with Hurricane Emily all day and at 5:30 - the rain stopped - my wedding was at 6pm.  It was a miracle, really.  They tried very hard to move me inside, but I was determined to get married on the beach.  We had the Himitsu booked and they moved us into a dark room behind it without notifying  me.  I wasnt very  happy about it, but must say the humidity outside may have just killed my guests....they all had a great time anyway!!  We moved our party down to the disco when the reception ended.  The people who work in the disco are great with the entertainment.  It was lots of fun......maybe a little too much to drink? ! :)

                    Hey All,

                     

                    If you have a facebook account, the Dreams Page just posted their Virtual Tour of the resort. It's really great and you can choose what you want to see specifically!

                    http://www.facebook....17553434957900 

                     

                    Hope you find this useful!
