Dreams Punta Cana Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi girls! I booked my photographer last month after doing some research on pricing and quality of work. We decided not to have the resort photographer as the price seemed a bit high for us. We choose package 2 and added the coverage of pics for the dinner/reception for an additional $300. We also received a comp. TTD session, due to a promotion he was running at the time! The TTD the dress session is usually $250

We booked Michael and his website is Wedding Punta Cana by Photographer Michael Weiler | Wedding Foto Packages |.

He is also on Facebook and has many pictures (Michael Weiler | Facebook)

I've also attached here his package information (please note this might change), if you can't download the attachment PM me your email and I will send it to you...

As he is in Punta Cana already we only have to pay for his day pass and nothing else (no room or transportation)

 

Have a great day girls!!!!flypig.gifflypig.gifflypig.gifflypig.gif

Maybe we should make a master list of all email responses that we have all received (since we might have asked different questions or the same)? If you girls want to, copy and paste your questions/answers into ONE email, and then send it over my way and I will make a master list. This will be beneficial in case while we are there they tell us the wedding canopy with no flowers is $175 when in the email they told us $150.

 

My email is jak.05@hotmail.com. I will forward the master list to anyone that emails me.

Need your opinions:

 

To write your own vows or not write your own vows. That is the question. :)

 

Are you ladies personalizing your wedding by writing your own vows or just going with whatever the WC normally does?

 

Please help.

Ash- FANTASTIC idea :) We need a master list, since noone really wants to get screwed over! And what is it with Dreams upping prices randomly every few months? ugh... seriously.

 

Erin - I'm glad to hear they will honor the price! I am pretty sure i have an email with that in it... I will have to check when I get home! :) thanks for the heads up! The arch looks pretty in Jocy's pictures, so whether we use it or not depends on how it looks when we arrive! lol

I just sent my questions and answers, thank you for doing this. With just a month out, I'm getting very frustrated with the way they are doing things. We confirmed prices with our WC (Sharron) about 2 months ago, prices for the dinner and speaker rental, etc, and since the prices went up, we just wanted to confirm with her that she would honour the 2009 prices that we agreed to when we booked with them, and she said we'd be charged the 2010 prices. I picked DPC because I thought it was cheaper than many other resorts, and now with the increase in prices on essentially EVERYTHING, it's not! If I had known this, I may have looked into other resorts! Also, if we were having an at home wedding, you sign a contract and are guaranteed those prices. It's ridiculous that you book a year out and prices are allowed to change at their discretion, and there's nothing you can do to contest it!

 

Regarding the photographer question, we found a wonderful photographer who has never done a destination wedding, and kindly agreed to come photograph ours for ONLY the cost of her trip. So for a single room, we are paying about $1700, and that's it. She is going to capture everything, rehearsal, welcome cocktail hour, getting ready, ceremony, reception, TTD, excursion, etc. We really lucked out, especially looking at the prices DPC charges for so little photography!

I have just finally been charged the $500 dollar deposit from my debit card, which ofcoarse went negative, thinking that they would never charge it. I'm pretty pissed off, because I have been sending her MULTIPLE emails asking when this would be charged with other questions and confirmations as well which she has answered NONE. I knew sometime this would be charged (especially after toya's warning) but without even bothering me to email me back is just ridiculous. I'm probly the least finicky bride out there but this really bothered me. Just a heads up for you other ladies waiting for a deposit to be taken out...be prepared!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
