I am only doing the hand ceremony. I am trying to keep my ceremony as quick as humanly possible.

I plan on doing this, I thought I was supposed to. I don't know where or who they are sitting with but they should have placecards etc. I even sent my photographer a wedding invitation.

I'm getting pretty bored being home for march break, so I think I'll take a picture of my wedding shoes and try to post it. Would someone mind letting me know how to post pics?
Bored?! I've got plenty you can do for me, LOL! wink.gif

We are also then paying for the AHR in June.....don't know quite how we'll do it yet. 2 weeks or so an our final payments will be do on all three rooms we're paying for, oh and we just added our photographer so 4 rooms, and the wedding. It will completely drain the savings account and everything after that for and the AHR will have to go on a credit card, might have to max it out and then transfer the balance to an interest free card to pay it off. This wedding stuff is stressful, I'm trying to find ways to cut corners but Karisma does not make it easy!
We too are paying for every red cent. February/March has been the month of all payments due. I think someone is throwing an AHR for me in my home town so I'm not sure what I have to do on that end, my cousin throwing it is a caterer so the hard part is done!

Thanks :) I would have liked something with a little more detail, but I couldn't be too picky. I needed 3 kids which obviously does not allow for many options!

And, I read your comment about Tiffany...is there a way to get a differant coordinator? She has been getting on my nerves. I am interested to hear what problems you had with her, because I don't need any more planning problems. She has totally ignored my email about honoring the fabric quote. She answered the other questions but totally ignored the fabric thing. I don't really know how to reach her supervisor or how to request a different coordinator.
Tiffany is famous for only answering parts of questions. I truly don't think it's intentional. I think she only half reads emails. It was one of my biggest complaints with her, constantly having to re-ask questions over and over. As if we have time for that--just read it right the first time!!

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
