Thanks so much!
It depends on the type of atmosphere you want. We had ours at Arrecifes and everyone had such a blast. They set up the party on the terrace overlooking the pools and the ocean. It is a more casual fun type of dinner. Trattoria has great food and is a white table cloth, formal type of dinner that is inside. It is also located by the golf course which is not near the ocean at all.

We were glad we went with Arrecifes because we were wanting a more casual fun atmosphere.

I actually am going with about 8 pm, some people are flying in that day and I would like to give them some time to settle in.

you're very welcome!

i am a professional photographer, i just don't advertise it all over the forum because i started out here as a bride and became a moderator. i've been toying with the idea of becoming a vendor here soon, though.

Does anyone know the measurements of the gazebo aisles (just inside the gazebos...not the whole walkway leading up to it)huh.gif I want to make an aisle runner and have searched what seems like every post and still can't find it! I know HaleGrifa made a runner too but I can't find the measurements anywhere....

Thanks! That would be great if you could! I'm hoping to have my wedding in the chapel gazebo or the tucan gazebo :)

IMHO, if you arent having a catholic wedding, dont do it in the chapel gazebo. reason why: there is glass all around the outside of it, making it a photographer's nightmare. they almost certainly will need to use flash and it's quite a pain with the reflection. i arrived here at the MP today and did some scouting. i saw a wedding in both the chapel and the tucan gazebo. both were around 4pm, and both photographers were using all flash.

that said, dino gomez just shot a wedding in the chapel here and i saw his photos–he did a great job of minimizing the problem with the flash and the glass but having seen it now in person i am sure it was a big challenge.

the wedding i'm photographing tomorrow is in the tucan gazebo–will let you know how it turns out! :P

    • 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?
