I did not pay any set up fees either, although I did not have a huge amount of stuff.  Fans, bubbles, sand ceremony, then toasting glasses, cake server, and guest book, I think that was it.

Agreed on Le Chicque, if at all possible, try not to miss it!  My parents are Exotic members, so we went on the Friends in Paradise program and were able to make all of our dinner reservations before we arrived.

Only Le Chique has reservations. You have to go to Le Chique mid afternoon (4pm?-5:30pm?), and place your reservation. I would try as soon as I arrive- it's an experience not to be missed! And keep in mind, they never fully book the restaurant- you'll often see tables empty because they only serve a certain number of people an evening (I think it's about 45-50 max.), so you have to get those tables early! :)


 

justiner57 : Love that pink dress! Such a neat design. Looks like it was a super fun time.

Very interesting!  I am wondering if I even bother saying I want table runners etc. before getting down there, and a basket for my pashminas or the little "sandbox" that I want to use to put my place cards in..........

 

hmmmmmmmmm....what do you think?  risk it?

:)

That's fantastic! I really think the 'set-up' fee is hit or miss. Some girls had to pay very little (or none) and other girls got charged huge amounts. I think it comes down to WHO your WC is.

Just be prepared not to have what you want in case things are not available if you do it last minute. But it might certainlly be worth the risk!

Im not sure if its the same for brides from other countries but ive been told I need we need a blood test when we arrive? Does anyone know what this is for??

I ended up changing my ceremony location (who knew there were multiple choices?  my wc never told me, i found that out on here), changed my flowers, my cake, my photographer's starting time...if there's anything you really have your heart set on, i'd say do it ahead of time, but if you're flexible, wait til you get there! they really will do their best to make sure everything turns out the way you want it.

    • 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?
