3 Weddings..1 day.. CONFLICT??

Recommended Posts

Hi..

So... My wedding is scheduled for Aug 30, 2008 (about 4 months away)... about 40 guests scheduled to attend.

 

I have found out so many options for weddings receptions/ceremony/photography etc ..... on this website, it has given me such comfort/stress relief reading all the reviews and pictures! I cannot describe in words what this forum is worth..

 

Anyway,

Does anyone know how far in advance one has to reserve rehearsal dinners, reception options, photography…etc. I guess I am a little worried that with two or three other weddings scheduled for the same day there might be some overlap in desires for events…

I would be fine scheduling details when we arrive, but will be disappointed if options are limited due to timing!

 

 

Thanks again,

Kelly

Where are you haveing your wedding? Is there a wedding cordinator. If you have a cordintator I would ask her about those things ASAP. If you are doing them on your own then I would also start now. I personally would want to do it now so that I wouldnt have to stress right before the wedding

You might want to not wait too long although you can sometimes get deals if you wait till the last minute. I spoke with a girl who got her photographer for about $200 less b/c she waited until 3 weeks before. It was definitely a risk but if you are on a tight budget, it could be a great reward. Also, depends on the day. If you marry on a mon to thurs, there is more avail. Hope this helps.

Check with your WC to see what your options are (with pics). And if you see anything you like, reserve it. You can always change it again when you get there and get to see with your own eyes. But at least this way you'll have something guaranteed. Just provide the WC your vision of the wedding and they should be trying their best to accomodate you.

Sorry! Failed to mention the wedding location! The wedding is at Riu Ocho Rios. I have also heard that it is difficult to get in touch with the WC there prior to arrival.

 

thanks,

I am freaking out a bit too!

 

I emailed Valeria about my wedding (November) asking if she could send pics of flowers etc. and I was told I would receive info about 2-3 months prior to the wedding date.

 

I'm not planning on having reception dinners etc. We are going very low budget and simple. I don't even think we will have more than the wedding party (6 ppl) going.

 

You can try emailing the WC and see what she says. I'd be interested to see what she has to tell you.

 

Side Note: I have to stop reading so much on here because I got so overwhelmed I couldn't sleep. I would make a list of suggestions from here and figure out what you want. Then research..IMO wink.gif

 

Good luck!

I think most of the ROR brides were told we couldn't start planning til 2 months before, but none of us could wait that long. I would suggest contacting Chandlyn about your wedding. Yes, it does take her about a week to get back to you, but she will get back to you.

I think I read in another thread that you don't have to finalize that stuff until 2-3 months before hand. Although I don't think there are many brides getting married on my day (Nov 13, a thursday) - we decided to put the request in for plantation already... just in case. I think the other things I wouldn't worry so much about since the 3 weddings would be at seperate times so things like the ceremony location wouldn't be a problem. It's the reception things (locations, dj, etc), you know, when they are all happening at the same time that I would worry about a little more.

    • 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.
