I'm thinking of transporting glass vases down to DR also...I figured if I give one to each member of my family (+2 extras just incase) it should be o.k. 

 

You MIGHT be able to find some at the shops there, but if you don't have have to rent from the resort it may get pricey. Try asking your WC how much renting the vases would be.

 

Let me know how you decide to do it. I'm planning on a lot of newspaper wrapped around it, I hope that will be enough wacko.gif

Things are moving along, waiting for the delivery of a few things, like our guest books! 

 

The only things left to do now are a make-up trial, so I can take some photos to give to the ladies at the spa and then printing out the welcome letters for our OOT bags, our donation favour tags and the name cards for our guests seating arrangements.

 

 

One thing that has gotten me stumped is that I'm trying to do what ever I can to avoid having to transport 5-6 glass round vases down to the DR.

Anyone have any suggestions on where I might be able to locate some acrylic vases?

Hi Ladies!

I'm thinking about getting mini cooler bags for my OOT bags, this way guests could put some ice in it and keep their drinks cold while on the beach.

Still looking to find cheap bags to have my monogram printed though. Anyone have any ideas, preferably in Toronto or a company that ships to Canada.

It will look something like this though.

Hi Jen!

 

Glad things are going smoothly and time sure is flying by! I here you about you feel like you just got engaged! I feel the same way.

 

As for the vase, i reached out to a friend that is a wedding coordinator there in Punta Cana who may be able to rent the vases to you so that you don't have to lug them. If she gets back to me, i will send you her info so you guys can communicate directly. Hope she can help to spare you the trouble of bringing it with you and/or purchasing them!  =)

OMG, i also just saw the new pics on the website and I LOVE the new chairs that they got and the lanterns. I also emailed my WC to see if those are available and also if there is a cost. As well as for the lanterns. I'm so excited as i really didn't want to use the chair covers or bows, especially the rate they were charging for each bow! How exciting, if i hear back soon, i'll post her comments/costs if any! http://www.dreamsresorts.com/drepc/plan-your-wedding.html

Hi everyone! I'm new to the site and am loving it. My fiance and I will be getting married at Dreams Punta Cana on November 4, 2011. I have been trying to read as much as I can but there is so much info to get through I may  need to quit my day job to read it all! I've read some of the stuff about the Photographer issues. We are planning on using the Dreams photography staff for our pics. Has anyone used them?

Hi Melissa,

I have read that the Dreams photography is pricey compared to an outsider. I'm using Michael Weiler from Caribbean emotions. I read that his is highly recommended. Here is his website.

Shelly is Dreams charging you a fee for having an outside photographer? How long do you have him if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks ladies for responding. We are planning on going with the Ultimate wedding package that includes a 30 minute video n 50 photos. My only concern is in the package listing it says ceremony only. I'm wondering if that means they will just take 50 pics of the 15 min ceremony. We do want some pics after with our family n stuff n I'm worrying about getting hit with an additional fee for that. If anyone has any experience about all of this I would love to hear from you. Also, for u ladies using an off site photographer would u mind sharing pricing info n what it includes? If u don't want to post it on the forum feel free to PM me. Thanks so much!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
