I just got my bill from that time period and the roaming charges were $245! (I use TMobile) I haven't seen hubby's bill yet! (He's with Sprint!)

Another option that may be useful that was shared with us wayyy too late was to buy a local SIM card and insert it into your phone. That way you would avoid roaming charges. SIM cards costed about $16. Anyone trying to work out their communication issues may want to consider this option.
We use AT&T and before we left we purchased an international plan for about $6 per month. Even with that plan you are still charged $1.69 per minute, and our bill ended up being about $75 for just the calls we made while we were there. All in all I wasn't impressed by our cell phone service at the resort. We were unable to get through to my sister (only guest with a cell phone) using our cell phone. Luckily Sandals was able to connect us, but that cost us $44 for just a few quick calls.

Here is the the table set up at SGOR. I added nothing to the cake and the flowers in the center are the "free" bouquet. I was actully very happy with it and I am glad I saved my money for the fun stuff like excursions and shopping...lol

As a sidenote - the cakes are yummy! We opted for vanilla because it seemed the most weddingish flavor and it was amazing, but then again, I don't discriminate when it comes to baked goods...

Hehe... Me either Amanda! The sad thing is we sat the next night in the middle of the bed eating the left over cake they sent with us. It was pretty funny and totally us. I wish I had someone to take pictures of us doing it...lol

Customs is very strict about taking "unpackaged" food across from the border. From other threads I've read on this site, you can't take your cake home...so if you like it be sure to eat it there!

    • I would like both my son's to walk me down the aisle and my dad. please give me any ideas to include all 3 of them. I'm open to any ideas please
    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
