Sylvia,
I had a list of extras the resort sent me and they have the Mariachi Trio for $560/set (45 min) and they also list "marichi band" - it deosn't say how many poeple are in it- but i assume it's more than three (if you wanted the larger group). that's $1100/ per 45 minute set.

I read a couple of reveiws here that said they were a "must"!

I am wondering if anyone has the "dreams activities" document... the schedule of daily resort events? I thought it would be nice to put that in the welcome packet -or is that something that is given to you at check-in?

 

for those already married, was there any on-site dreams activity/event/show worth organizing for the group to take part in?

i just wish there was some kind of distance scale so you'd know exactly how close everything was! seems like the things i mentioned should be within walking distance.

i've attached it here too ... i think (never did that before)!
I'm going to Hard Rock for my reception. I think its right next to coco bongos and rainforest cafe - its about 5 mins walk i think. Well thats what my mate has told me anyway lol

OMG they have a curves gym lmao straight out of south park pmsl

i just emailed the resort itself (not the WCs) to request a schedule of both their daily activities and nightly entertainment. i really want to know which night is "caribbean night" on the beach, and i've heard they do a "casino night" as well (a casino is the ONE thing the resort doesn't have, so *of course* that's the one thing my family keeps asking for!). i'd like to know when those special events are so that we can possibly plan the rehearsal and excursions around the things that i don't want anyone to miss, ya know?

i will of course let you all know what i hear back from them!

edit: oh damn, i forgot to ask about the movies on the beach ... are they in english with spanish subtitles, or vice versa? LOL

A trio is like wearing a suit without a shirt to us Mexicans. lol -- ugh My parents want a Mariachi with 10 men and its super expensive... whatever, the parents are driving me nuts also.

Another question? Has anyone gotten credit from the photographer and been able to use the credit towards partial payment for centerpieces?

How much are the kids meals?

My entire wedding is over at 9pm. Has anyone gotten an exception to keep it going till 10-11pm? Its on the beachsmile72.gifsmile72.gif

    • 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?
