does anyone know whether wedding planners who are not associated with hotels also have their own contracts with certain venues? so far, i've only been working with one planner and i'm completely satisfied with her service, but i'm wondering if i should also talk to other planners... are the independent planners limited to what they can recommend because of their own contracts or is it safe to assume that the independent coordinators are truly independent?

eab, It is my understanding that some of the wedding planners do not adhere to the ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants) code of ethics, which is what most reputable professional wedding planners adhere to. This code of ethics recommends that professional bridal consultants do not receive any $$$ from vendors that they recommend. This ensures that the wedding couple are presented will ALL options and together you and the wedding planner make the best informed decisions. Of course, the wedding planner will recommend to clients, the vendors that she/he works best with, has confidence in and meets your budget. With all that being said, I know that some wedding planners in the Caribbean are not ABC consultants and therefore, may not adhere to this code of ethics. I know that some are aligned with certain venues and it is really up to you to do the research yourself then discuss with your consultant your findings. I hope this helps you some. Good luck on your journey towards your special day in paradise!

Hope I can help some....Independant coordinators ARE truly independant! We have the option of fullfilling your requirements by choosing from many differant vendors! We use several differant ministers, photographers, cake bakeries, videographers, etc.. If you want someone specific, we will be happy to work with you! Sometimes a bride will hire her own photographer, for instance, then we provide the rest! Independant Coordinators are very flexible.

    • 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?
