It wasn't Alejandro. I'm trying to remember his name, but def not the same. Perla should be able to put you in touch.

Thanks!!!!
We actually had our dinner in L'hermitage, not outside (it was August and we were afraid it would be too hot), so people had a choice between lamb, steak and fish, I believe. But generally, the food is really, really good so I wouldn't worry. but if you want an alternative to meats, their fish was super!

She said that she would match when it was apples to apples comparissons but I don't really know what the means since we haven't even sent out our STDs yet. ( I know I'm behind). I'll let you know what I experience as people begin to book.

No worries!
Thanks! I'm hearing the same thing - "apples to apples" - and I don't really know what that means either - sounds sorta vague to me. When we booked our travel it was about the same, but now it's $500 cheaper on Orbitz, sorta wish we would have waited to book since travel rates keep getting lower and lower it seems.

I'm not really seeing the value in having a TA. I assumed they would have unique access to the best deals and alert us to them so we could pass them on to our guests. But instead my guests and I are finding these deals online and trying to get her to match them. I feel like we're doing all the work!

But I am grateful these travel deals are out there! ;>)

1 month from today... I'll be at Paradisus! YAY! It cannot come soon enough. I'm ready to walk down that sandy beach aisle, marry FI and party with friends and family!

 

Right now, it looks like the big items have been crossed off the list. Still, there's so much to do: vows, programs, escort cards, welcome letter, earrings, shoes, guestbook, etc. Eek!

 

I'm working on a planning post even though it's much simpler and doesn't have the fun DIY items as other BDW ones. Hopefully, some of you will find it useful.

 

THANKS and a smile03.gif to all you Paradisus ladies! I love that we have such a friendly, supportive and active group! I couldn't have done it without you all!

Good news, my TA was able to match the Orbitz pricing and actually came in a bit cheaper even with the airport transfers. Travel rates are incredibly cheap right now. My sister's travel quote is $1000 cheaper than it was a month ago! I'm starting to regain my trust in DWT!

 

Thanks again for all your helpful advice! I don't know what I would do without this forum!!! ;>)

Lauren- thanks for the sash info. I'm going to check it out.

 

Fanny- 1 month till you are in Mexico!! woohoo. I arrive on the 19th. I forget... will you still be there? I would love to meet the newleyweds even if it's just for a short bit. HOw exciting.

 

Brooke- even though we are working with a TA I have checked out other sites and am annoyed that there are so many deals now! Good for you I hope you end up saving a few $. We booked a while back thinking that prices would go up becuase that was when gas was a million a gallon and whatnot. Also.. I think that term "apples to apples" must be a TA term cause mine said that too! ha ha

 

On another note. I am so ready to just go get married and leave all this behind. I am so over school, planning and cold weather. I want sun, fun, friends and family!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
