Are you working with someone from the Miami office? You could possible conference the TA and the WC from Miami on the phone to see if they can work something out. It's worth a shot.
Yazmin is my WC so I just sent her an email asking. We have 44 nights booked, and of course only 9 rooms! I'm sure my TA is getting something out of the deal, so I almost don't want to go that route yet. First I'd like to see what the WC will say. According the website, we should get comped two nights too, but believe it or not... I'd rather have the free cocktail hour more than anything! We have a small group (17) so I don't want to spend the money to book anything private, yet I want it to feel like it's private and "just for us!" =)

What rooms are you ladies booking? I think most of our guests are going with Standard on the Spa side. I think me and man might do the conciege level just because its our wedding / hunnymoon.

 

I also think that we might do a week at the spa and a week on the cove side so I can visit with my niece as well as the adults.

I see your wedding is in almost a month Jackie / Christ! Have you guys finalized everything with your WC. Decorations and Locations of events? Or are you going to do it when you get their? If you have finalized everything you should post a summery for us! I am soo sooo soo excited, I still have ten months, so i'll live vicarously threw your wedding lol.

I will probably provide them with a detail list down to the T, but then again I love planning stuff.

Yes, the bouquets are large enough to split. You aren't really suppose to tell them you are doing it and you have to physically split and reassemble them yourself. It's just helps out to save $$.

Skadow - I cant believe I only have a little over two months to go! I have done a lot but still there is a lot left to do. So far I have done the following:

 

- Got dress & accessories / did fitting - need to get steamed

- Got Grooms suit and accessories

- BM have their dress - need to get jewelry but that is picked out

- reserved ceremony site, cocktail reception site which will be at the Cove Terrace, and dinner reservations at Mundaca roof toop.

- Plan spa day for Friday, day before the wedding for me and the girls

- made reservations for hair appt for day of wedding (also for BMs and Jamie's mom)

- also made dinner reservations for welcome / rehearsal dinner on Friday 6/25

- OOT bags (still need to get Pashminas for them)... also getting cigars from Mexico when we get there to put in the bags.

 

I still need to get some gifts for the wedding party, parents, and grandparents. Also need to get some other items: fans, sand for ceremony set, tags, maracas (will buy in Mexico)... I feel like I'm forgetting something but I have all of it written down but not handy :-)

 

As for the details of the flowers, etc. I have an idea of what I want but will finalize the day we meet with our WC.

 

Here is our wedding website for more info: Cristi & Jamie - wedding website by mywedding.com

In regards to the bouquet, I ask Dulce my WC to see if we could get a small bouquet for the BMs and she gave me a quote of $60 per toasting bouquet which is a smaller version of my bouquet... She sent me some photos of an example and will post them if I can find.

Hi Guys:

 

Quick etiquette question - I want your opinion.

 

We've already provided each of my 5 bridesmaids $300 each to assist with travel expenses to the wedding. Do you think its necessary I get them each bridesmaid gifts as well?

 

Also if someone has the Spa services menu, could you please post it?

 

thanks! I'm 6 weeks away! Hard to believe.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
