They're a lot of fun but yes, they're time consuming. A suggestion I'd have for those not staying at the resort would be to flat rate ship (since it's actually pretty affordable now - only about $5 for a decent sized box w/in the US). You could send those families their goods (possibly not everything you'd include in the bags you'll be bringing with you for those staying at the hotel if it doesn't all fit), but print out the same material if you're creating a brochure w/ the itinerary, details on the location, etc for it to arrive before they leave? Just a thought and then that way you aren't worrying about saving bags in your room or with the concierge for those who won't be at your hotel. That way, everyone would still be included :)

I have a question about OOT bags. I have heard mixed reviews on these.... some ladies said they aren't worth the time & trouble and that most guests didn't even really use. Others say that their guests loved them & used them all the time. Here is my problem, we have about 3 or 4 families staying at an outside resort (annoying I know) but I don't want them to feel excluded if they don't get an OOT bag. I have no way of getting in touch with the resort before hand and don't feel like I should take the trouble to get their bags to the resort since they aren't staying at our resort. But I want to do something nice for everyone...

 

Any thoughts or ideas :)

Are you flying down with them at the same time? If you are you could give them their bags at the airport (or perhaps some of your bridal party is on the same flight and could give them out to them?)

 

I like the idea of sending the welcome phamplet/schedule to their home, so that they know what's going on. And then perhaps the day of the wedding when they come to the resort, you could have one of your bridal party or another friend give them the OOT bag.

 

Good luck!

Hi Ladies, We just got back and I am wiped but after I catch up on work I will tell you all about it!!! It was GREAT!!! I had little to no problems and the ones I did have we my fault and not the staffs. For example I forgot the Groomsmen butonniers in the room 30 min before the ceremoney but they ran back and got them for me. It was Was WINDY on the beach but again nothing anyone could do about it.

I had no real problems with music and my set-up fee was only $80 but I didn't have that much to set-up. I will post full review and what not this week!

Congratulations Maggie! So happy to hear it all went well :) Now relax a little and enjoy being married.

Hey girls,

 

I got two samples from my photographer, Maria Angela Photography, to share.  :)  I think the rest may take a little while, so these will have to hold me over for a bit.  Prof - Garden laughingsmaller.jpgProf - Front of ASsmaller.jpg

Great photos Maggie and Tisha! Can't wait to see the rest :)

 

The stone wall is just outside the main lobby as you drive up to the resort.

    • 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?
