  Hi Ladies,

  I just got back last Saturday from my wedding/honeymoon (wedding was Feb 21st) thought I share a few things with you :)   The resort grounds are beautiful, perfect place for a wedding! I got married in the gazebo at 4pm and had cocktail hour and reception on the Himitsu terrace untill 11pm. I also had flowers from the resort which were beautiful as well!     gazebo.jpg     Flowers.jpg     The resort was 110% full on the week of our wedding, they tried to “upgrade†9 of our 30 guest to the Hard Rock… As well, the rooms are SMALL! We had a swim out room, we wanted to upgrade to a Honeymoon suite as we werenâ€t happy with our room, we were even willing to pay whatever price, but they said they had no rooms at all!  The swim out turned out to be fun, but it was a lot smaller than any other all inclusive resort rooms Iâ€ve been in.   The beach is awesome here!! Trying to find a chair or a towel after 9am was pretty much impossible which was probably due the resort being 110% book. This is where our swim out room came in handy :)   Beach.jpg   Our photographer was Michael Weiler with Caribbean Emotions, he was amazing, and such a good price. We also had 36 printed photos of the ceremony with the resort photographer they wanted 180$ for 36 images on CD, (and that they said was half price!!!)   I wasnâ€t planning on doing a TTD but a week after the wedding, my Mom talked me into it! I called up Michael and he was able to do one with us!! It was amazing, he took us off resort to a beautiful beach and the pictures turned out amazing!    TTD1.jpg   TTD2.jpg     Let me know if you ladies have any questions :)

Sherri yours pictures look awesome and your Mugs look super familiar.. I saw you on one of the days you were there, I think maybe the friday, your group was sitting behind my group at the pool.  I was down there from the 13th-20th and got married on the 17th (the one day it rained all evening : ( .)

 

I hear you about the towels it was next to impossible some days to get a towel.

Hi Sherri,  your pictures are amazing, you look beautiful!  I was wondering if you have any pictures of your reception.  Our wedding is scheduled for May 21st at 4:30 with our dinner and cocktail hour on the Himitsu Terrace.  It also looks like we're expecting around the same number of guests you had, so I'm just curious to see what the set up looks like.  Also, how do they do the cocktail hour?  Is everything in the same space as the dinner, or do they do the cocktail hour on one part of the terrace and the dinner on another part?

 

Thanks!!

Yes, they are all booking on their own, we are just keeping on top of vacation packages that we find and inform the ones who haven't booked yet.

 

As for the 6th room free, not sure what that is. I get a free upgrade with my wedding package..... Can you tell me more abut the 6th room free?

Thanks

 Kwaller82 - I do have some pics of the reception but I don't know how well they show the set up. Let me know your email address and I'll send you some. Cocktail hour was in the same area as the dinner, people were just kinda standing around when I got there after cocktail hour was done.

Hi has anyone on here had a catholic ceremony?

if so can you pm me I have some questions.

 

- is there a rule that the groom has to walk up the aisle right before the bride walks up coz we saw our priest here in canada and he told me that

  this is what the catholic church has to do.  apparently the groom cannot stand at the alter like we've always seen before, he has to walk up with 

  his parents right before the brides walk???? this really threw me off.....lol

- also did you do a first reading, responsorial psalm and a second reading, and lastly a "lord hear our pray"??

- did you play a song while he was getting the bread and wine ready? and did you play a song while he was giving out communion? where u allowed  to play a songs i mean??

- then lastly we want to say our own vows but also we would like to repeat the traditional vows after the priest and then play our recessional song in the 

end

-also did you have to sign the register while the priest was there?? and what about the uniting of the candles or combining the sand when or did you do this........

 

sorry lots of questions for you catholic brides but i would love some help with this as Im very organized and I dont want any surprises the day off

coz apparently there is no rehearsal and the first time i see the preist will be when i walk up the aisle??????

    • Economics as a career is highly rewarding in the current environment. We need economists to study agriculture in an increasingly changing global weather patterns, decode financial implications of economic plans as well as help the government formulates administrative policies. Economics Honours graduates are in high demand in almost every Fortune 500 company as well for top government jobs. The options with this degree are endless.   If you are among those thousands of students looking for a career as an Economics Honours graduate but have no idea how - don’t worry. We have got you covered! Read on to know all about one of India’s most preferred courses and what are the career options after economics honours (some really fancy ones!) that open up for you with an Economics Honours degree.
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far?
