It seems like you'll probably be able to get a trade for something else, but I wouldn't expect it to match up dollar-wise. Everything in the package is discounted, you'd be paying a lot more if you did everything based on listed prices. You might also only be able to make other trades in the spa, since that's a different department. For instance, maybe you could trade the massage for hairstyle and makeup for your bridesmaids or something. It can't hurt to ask the WC that you're working with!

I don't know if you get a massage in the honeymoon package. There is the honeymoon package you get with the wedding, and then there is the Eternity Honeymoon package (does anyone know if these are the same). It would be awesome, because I think that also includes a private dinner for two!

don't know if they are the same, but the eternity HM package is complimentary if you book a certain cat room for 7 nights or any 5 rooms for three nights at any cat. we definately have the 5 rooms for three nights so we'll be getting this one regardless.

good idea wilsoml2, i was planning on getting BMs and mom and FMIL nail polish change (since i'm sure it'll be chipped for the beach) so i'll try to switch the massage for that.

Hi Girls,

for the first time ever i am having a hard time getting a hold of Cecilia....and of course its when i have a pressing question!!!

i need to set the arrival time for my guests in order to finish my invitations....

But besides that, i cannot for the life of me remember the diferences between the beach near the gazebo (i think this is the carribean beach , the one that was just restored and is now massive) and the other beach (i think its called himitsu?)....do any of you have any opinions good or bad about these beaches?

i was originally having the reception on the beach near the gazebo, but now that it is so big im not sure that i want to.....

can't help you with the beaches because we're doing the reception on the terrace.

but as for the arrival time...do you mean what time you'll have the cermony?? I put 4pm on the invitaions and then asked everyone to be there 15 mins early (i put that info on our website)

Hello ladies...I am back.. My review will be up in a little bit lol couple of days.... I have been really busy...

 

Beach Question: The beach by the gazebo is huge but private.... When I was there the only part that was semi packed was by the water and well you have a long way from there.... The beach by the gazebo seems like there is a lot more space.... I think i saw a set up for a beach party in the smaller beach. The smaller beach seems a lot more packed then the bigger one.... I hope this helps any more questions I'll be happy to answer....

 

Time question: I told my quests that reception was at 3:30pm but it was really 4pm.... Remeber people dont carry watches on vacation and well people always say weddign do not start in time so they dont arrive on the exact time so i gave them a 30 minute lag time.... The lobby with the bar is right near the gazebo so if people get there early they get to go get a drink and stay out of the sun until the WC tells them to to get there seats...

 

any questions ladies im here to help?

I'm having the same issue! I emailed Cecilia about a week ago and haven't heard back which is weird since she has been quick lately since my wedding is in a few weeks!

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
