I used Caribe with some hesitation but the price was just too good to pass up!!  I whole-heartedly recommend the photographer I had.  His name is Vucko Raskovic.  I'm sure you could request him specifically.  He did an amazing job!!  Here is a link to his facebook where he has a bunch of pictures.  https://www.facebook.com/vrphotography1?fref=ts  I can share some with you as well if you would like.

Wouldn't it be in bad form to drop her now because I may get a better per night quote from another TA?

have you mentioned the other rate to your current planner?  if she knows there are better rates out there maybe she can do the same??  Just a thought :)  I would at least ask before just dropping her.

Hi! So my coordinator said I could have a small table for vendors and also there is a vendor meal that is $9 and includes a sandwich and soda and like chips or something

If you could confirm this is an option I would love to add this to the Official site information. What a great option!

If you get a better price from a different TA, I would ask your wedding planner if she is able to get the same deal, match it, or perhaps offer something else to make up the difference (seat upgrade, extra luggage allowance, reduced banquet fees, etc??)

 

And if she has been so helpful, unless it's a huge difference of price, you may still prefer to stick with her. Sometimes good service, is really worth a few extra dollars! (I know from my personal experience my TA seemed great, but ended up messing up so many times, that I essentially did all the work myself. Trust me, I would have preferred someone I could count on, and not have to constantly follow up on!)

I'm using Caribe!! I recommended Wrote Vucko on Facebook and he told me he was planning on leaving caribe:( I wrote them and requested him and they said he is no longer with them... I'm kind of worried now. They told me they would get me the best one but I'm sure they tell everyone!! I'm getting married at the end of the month and I will be sure to post some pics and I'll let you know if the photographer is any good:)

Hi! So this is what the email from my coordinator said "You can have the same meal for them that you are offering, or we also have an option of a vendor meal which is $9 for a club soda with fries and soda." So you can definitely add this info :-)

Murmel-

 I was told by my WC Lynda that no fireworks of any kind [including cold] are allowed on the property.

 I asked several times, b/c I know they've done it in the past. WC confirmed "although they've allowed cold fireworks in the past, they no longer allow it due to complications they've had". So i would say no to fireworks :)

And I don't believe you can have sky fireworks(especially not at the Plaza). But ask your WC, perhaps they offer a package to do it on the beach (although I really have my doubts- sorry).

I told them I was looking for their most "photojournalistic" photographer and that is who they gave me and I was extremely happy.  Maybe since you can't have him specifically you could make the same request and hopefully get someone just as good?!?  I'm sure it will be great....I went in blind with no recommendations at all, just couldn't beat the price and was EXTREMELY pleased!  Good Luck!!

    • 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?
