There are 2 nicer restaurants at the Gran Porto one is mexican and the other Italian.  We ate at the mexican restaurant during our site visit and was not impressed, we tried to eat at the Italian during our site visit and our wedding and there was always a very long wait.  A couple of out guests also tried to go there and ended up leaving because of the wait .





The long tables is something I knew I wanted so I just made sure before going down there that the long tables were available and then went over it with my onsite coordinator when I got there. 

 

The one thing with doing the set-up like this is that you need more centerpieces.  For instance we had 48 guests so could have gotten away with 8 round tables/8 centerpieces but since we did it that way I needed 14 lanterns and 12 centerpieces so it definitly costs more to do it this way.



Thanks for the info.... it really did look beautiful... sometimes the extra cost is worth it!

JoZee84,

        I was told the onsite coordinator would contact me 30 days prior to the wedding. So I think she should be getting in touch with you any day now. Maybe contact your WC and ask her when you should hear from the on-site WC.

I would contact your WC about who your on-sight WC will be. My WC contacted me a month ago to let me know who my on-sight WC will be (Lili) and to get up a meeting, and I'm getting married May 28.

JoZee - I had to contact my WC and ask her who my person is. Apparently I have a guy - his name is Denys. Has anyone worked with him?

 

A question to all brides that got married there recently - did any of you plan a sunset cruise or any type of water activity? We were mentioning to some of our friends about hosting a sunset cruise and a few of them were visibly disturbed. They were telling us about pirates taking over ferries and private cruises in the area.

 

Has anyone heard or had any issues with this?

 

I'd really like to do this but may need to change to something else if people are that worried.

 

Any suggestions or ideas on a group outting in the late afternoon?

    • 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?
