    Anyone include an itinerary for the OOT bags? We are wanting to do a rehearsal dinner (just at one of the restaurants there so it's all inclusive - not the formal private one they offer) but how am I to know when to plan it? When did the WC contact everyone for a rehearsal?

      I asked the resort and they said for every 6 rooms you get one free, up to 3 free rooms....not sure when they offer this but I contacted them directly. We have no kids but my family does and I really want them to be there. Thanks for the info on the swim up rooms though, I wouldn't have thought to ask about the kids in those rooms...but I suppose they probably would be told when booking.

They did not allow them to be booked in our room because we chose to get a swim-up room and there are no children allowed in these types of rooms, so my parents ended up getting the family suite. (I have the best parents in the world.)  

       

      I also know that for the reception kids eat for half price, but other than that I'm not sure. Have you talked to your travel agent about getting a group rate? Mine is still looking into it for me and our wedding is in June. I think it's considered after there are 10 rooms booked or something but I can't be 100 percent positive.

       

      TJC - I had NO idea about that fee! I guess that also applies to my dj as well...lean something new everyday...ugh.

       

      Also - this might sound kind of dumb...but do any other brides have a fear of flying like I do??

          Before we started booking, I saw this special on their website as well but after reading the details of the offer, I realized it does not apply to groups attending a wedding, unless you have somehow found a way around it? I think the best thing to do is call the resort and get a group rate.

            Hey everyone,

             

            Im a newbie here but so far loveeee reading about everyones wedding ideas and plans. Our wedding day is 08/11/2012... I'm extremely excited nd anxious already. Btw does anyone know what the centerpieces they have look like, would it be better to just invest in my own?? It's so hard to plan from far away.

              You can get pictures of just about anything from your wedding coordinator

                I too booked HDC!! They do reply very quickly and seem to be very willing to work to make the packages work for each bride. I have not read any bad reviews on their services.

                  As far as kids go, we have 5 attending. According to my travel agent they are priced according to age (13 and over is charged as an adult), but for the younger kids I have seen other people post that they are half price for the reception. Also, my travel agent said that Dreams or Apple vacations will run a promotion periodically that kids are free. Don't know when your wedding is, but maybe keep an eye out for that promotion.

                    As far as photography, I too am using HDC. But, I have also heard very good things about Carribean Emotions. I guess it comes down to price and how well their packages fit into what exactly you want.

                      I'm pretty sure you're right on that, since it is technically just symbolic there is no legality to it. But yes, I agree that hopefully no one realizes that!!

                      Thanks for the heads up DominicanLeila! :)
