Thanks!

Hi,

 

Below is the information of the WC that has been helping me. Were you able to get the date you want at RPLA?

 

I did get the confirmation and booked our stay for 10 days! I just ended up going with 9-11-09. We will never forget our anniversary! I just decided to go with it because I think Friday will work out well for my guests who just want to say for a long weekend. Anyway, so the room is booked and the wedding date confirmed so now I'm just working on my wedding website and the save the dates!

I'm also getting married on a Friday for that same reason. Half of my guests will be leaving that Sunday and the other half are staying up to a week. I was trying to avoid anyone traveling tired or hung over from the night before if we had the wedding on a Saturday.

 

Good luck with your STD's and websitecheers.gif

Have you heard anything from the WC about flowers or cake or anything yet? I was just curious because I have been thinking about what color I should do for the bridesmaid dresses. Not that I really need it to match or anything, but I was just thinking about it. Oh yeah, and do you know where you are doing your reception?

I decided to take my own flowers (real touch) with me because I didn't want to spend too much on them. She mentioned to me that only tropical flowers (callas, lilies, gerberas) are included in the package (for your bouquet and bout). But callas are not in season in September (incase you wanted them). Orchids (which I wanted along with lilies) are an extra charge. I haven't talked to her about the cake. I will let you know as soon as I hear back from her because we have currently been emailing eachother regarding the dinner plans (setup, location). We are going to have it at El Romero's (I think that's what it is called). It's the steakhouse on the terrace overlooking the ocean. The food is great there!!! I was not a big fan of steak and for the first time in my life, I finished one entirely by myself there!

So, I found out my WC is Lizette. I read somewhere on here that she is good. I guess they have more than 1 WC. Anyway, I got all the info to the photographer so things are moving along. Plus, I finished designing my passport save the dates (thanks to Becks awesome template!)

 

I guess now I need to purchase wedding insurance. Does anyone happen to know if RPLA offers their own wedding insurance (or if they do, require you to buy it from them?) If not, I was looking into getting it from WedSafe.com

I'm not sure about the wedding insurance through RPLA. I actually had never heard of wedding insurance until about a month ago by reading one of the threads. Did you already try asking Lizette?

 

Sorry I can't help you here! I have a wedding brochure template with info on RPLA if you ever need it. I hope you have fun with the rest of your planning!

Yeah, I emailed her so I'll let you know what she says. My mother was bugging me about what would happen if there was bad weather so I thought I would check into it. I read somewhere on here about this insurance from Wedsafe for your wedding so that if for some reason the wedding had to be postponed, it would be covered. And if there are other issues like vendors not showing up, etc the insurance also covers that. It seems like a good idea because you never know what can happen.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
