I believe you have to bring your own

which is probably best anyway as you can have the exact colors of sand you want

Had my dress fitting today a few little tweaks and all done yey! i have two dresses my main dress which i will wear fro ceremony and photos and one which i am i going to change into  for meal and evening-and then i will re- wear my main dress back home for our Reception :0)

 

Really wanting to do the sand ceremony but been finding a set in the uk actually very difficult does anyone know anywhere or any good sites ??

 

just to confirm the hair trial included in the 'Blissful love' package is just a consultation to discuss hair fort he day not a 'practice run' i have had my appointments booked a while now and have a clarification form spa who seem lovely and really helpful wedding hair is $85 quite pricey especially for the style i am having but hey ho it's my wedding day :0) x x  x

Megz- for our wedding, we are just choosing one of the bars to meet at and have some drinks to fill in our time, its free cuz your just taking advantage of the all inclusive! After the ceremony and champagne toast, i'm having all my guests meet at the beach bar for drinks while we do photos, then by that time it's time for dinner (our ceremony is at 3 and was told the ceremony, signing amd toast will take me til almost 4ish) then after dinner til the disco opens were all going to the piano bar (ya they have one!! woo) for drinks til the disco opens. just an idea! congrats and good luck!

We are getting married December 8th, 2011 (date has been confirmed with the wedding planner).

 

The wedding is set for the palapas beach location for 2pm. I was hoping for some advice on how the rest of the afternoon should go after the ceremony. I want to have a reception for a few hours, but not till a bit later in the evening.

 

I am assuming the wedding with take half an hour, then probably photos for an hour.... We are getting the unforgettable package, which I think includes a dinner... and then I would like a reception after that. How would you fill the time between the photos and the dinner/reception?

 

Any other advice would be extremely appreciated!!!

Whats this hammock location everyone speaks of ? does anyone have pics? I thought the only choices for ceremony outside was at the gazebo or down  on the beach by the palapas?

cdlillad- that is a freakin adorable cake topper! and funny cuz my fiance is wearing that exact outfit! lol

 

Wcook- i remember seeing somewhere on this thread that this one bride brought 12-13 yards of fabric but it didn't touch the ground. I'm bringing 15 yards down just in case, and if there is extra their just gonna make bows for the chairs out of it :)

Just over 5 weeks for us too!!!!!  Sooooooe excited!!

 

I just found that out about the Blissful love package only being a consultation, a bit annoyed really as it clearly says in my documents from First Choice....'Free trial hairstlye for the bride'.....not free consultation.

 

We are doing a sand ceremony.....have written the words out myself from bits & pieces off of the internet & Jazmin has said she will read out for us.  We are lucky in that my cousin lives in LA so I I have ordered a set to go to them & they will bring down to Mexico for us.

 

I wonder how babyshaws is getting on!!  Can't wait to hear all about her wedding.......come on ladies we want reviews!! :) :)

Waybuloo- I know i bet Babyshaws is having an amazing time :0)-not long for us now either! 

 

Lucky that you have a cousin in LA to send the sand ceremony kit to-good thinking - i have seen a few options around Ikea is surprisingly good for the vase's so think i'll be able to DIY a kit form a few different sources- however the future husband is constantly reminding how much we are already taking so we will see :0} doesn't help that i'm taking two dresses lol!!

 

Yes it is disappointing about the 'Blissful love' package stating free hair styling-when in fact it a consultation-glad i found out when i did as i quickly realised and did not have my heart set on a 'practice run' think it also helps that my 'look' is fairly relaxed- in terms of how i want my hair and make up there are the two things if i'm completely honest i have not spent much time mulling over i know i dont want my hair 'perfect' looking as in not a strand out of place-would just be impossible on the beach with a breeze! and my make-up i'm hoping to have a natural glow with the Mexico suntan i hopefully will develop with the week and 2 days b4 wedding lol,

 

Having said that my dress is still dressy and the FH is wearing beige suit and Grooms men wearing suit trousers and white shirts so still fairly formal -but beach worthy lol 

ooooooooooooo exciting xx

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
