Hi Tighty,

 

Did you have to pay a $100 fee to bring in your own photographer then pay for them as a guest? I just got incontact with Kim in Florida for Real resorts, and that is what she is telling me...seems kinda strange.

Thanks, loanmao!

Re: the photos at night, I think that might have been the photographer experimenting with the photos (to make them look a bit grittier/journalistic) but I can't say for sure.

After Elizabeth posted the teasers, she sent me a link to our slideshow and gallery and there are tonnes of photos at night without the grainy look.

I'll post a link to the slideshow here so you can have a look at the difference.

Thanks, jesman! When it's closer to your wedding, ask your WC to book your trials at the salon for you in advance. They get really busy and fill up quickly!

Hey cinny726!

What Kim is telling you kinda makes sense, I think. They have a policy for outside vendors to pay $100 to get on the property. Kim mentioning you have to pay the photog as a guest probably means (and I'm guessing here) that you have to cover the vendor's meal. Since they aren't a paying guest of the resort, they can't eat at the restaurants.

In my situation, it was in our photographer's contract that I cover one night's accommodation for her near the resort. I determined that it was more expensive for me to pay the hotel stay, plus the vendor fee, plus a day pass for the photog and her assistant.

Instead, I booked the photog one night's stay at the resort. Doing this, I didn't have to pay the day pass/guest meal 'cause the photographer was able to get dinner at the resort restaurants and I didn't have to pay a vendor fee because the photographer was a 'guest' of the resort.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for sharing your pics!! They are beautiful!!!!!

I noticed in the gazebo that there was no red carpet...have they stopped using that or did you just not want to use it?

I'm wondering if I should or shouldn't...as I think my color scheme might involve pink and it will prob clash...

Does anyone know how much flower centerpieces cost for the tables at the receptions? I keep asking but my coordinator never answers!

 

Thanks!

Hey jaxsebridetobe!

the red carpet came with our package but we opted out of using it; I didn't like the look of red against our colour scheme of blue, green, and yellow.

If you want an aisle runner in another colour, you'll need to bring your own; the don't have any other options.

    • 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?
