Man I over tipped..lol Well atleast this one time we did. We had gone on this trip to Margritiaville and we had this bus driver who was like intimidating us to give him a good tip. We basically told us we needed to tip him $20! Everyone on the bus complained! We usually tipped $5-$10 but this guy was intimdating! We thought maybe we were undertipping everyone else!

We were always on a packed bus, so a couple of bucks from everyone adds up to a pretty nice tip. And it was always hard to get change anywhere so we had to give them whatever we had on us. The only person who demanded a big tip was our tour guide at Dunns River.

Thank you this help alot. Did you tip your bartender who servered you during your reception and the dj? I know everyday tipping but I was more or less talking about our wedding day. Like did you tip the pastor who performed your ceremony??

I fully intended too, but DH and I were pulled in so many directions it slipped both our minds. I intended to give them each $50. I would suggest putting the tips in individual envelops and asking the best man or someone to be in charge of it. We didn't even get to give Chandlyn her tip and thank you card until the day before we left b/c we couldn't ever catch up with her after our wedding.

Hi, just a tidbit for anyone interested. They sell "wedding gratuity envelopes" for only $2.95 per dozen on "www.orientaltrading.com". I purchased them myself. I am going to write the name of each recipient very small on the envelope for referencing & put the tips in ahead of time & put them in the safe when I arrive. Then just put them in your bridal purse or give them to the best man & you'll be all set. you or whomever u choose can reference the names on each envelope & give them out accordingly. The site also has a whole wedding section & luau tropical section with many things u can use for welcome bags.

And remember, tips are for good service! If you get great service, tip away, if the service stinks, don't feel bad not tipping. We tipped the bartenders and servers but Chandlyn didn't get a dime of our money since we didn't get a minute of her attention. I was fully prepared to tip her but really didn't feel she deserved it!

    • 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?
