We did everyone else, but completely forgot about the photographer. So if you throw some money at him that may help as well.
yeah, since you've been gone we have had clarification that the photographers services are for 2 hours.

As posted here http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-30#post510062 I got in touch with them to ask the cost of more hours, and was told that for 6 hours it would be 980$, including 80 photos and no CD and they just further clarified this morning that that price is for somebody using the free wedding package (no photography). Somebody using the ultimate package they would deduct the value of what is already included, which they say is 450$ so it would cost you 430$ for the additional 4 hours of coverage (6 hours instead of 2) and the additional 30 photos (80 instead of 50). They will charge an additional 350$ for the CD. (I think, will update this tonight when I can reread that email, but it was definitely between 350-450$)

Question - do/did you include dinner for Landy and the DJ at your reception? I know to include Claudia Rodriguez (our photog), but not sure about the WC and resort DJ...?

I didn't include either, but I guess it is something to think about. The DJ was there setting up at around 4:30-5 so maybe I should have. And I guess Landy is working most of the time as well. Maybe ask Landy if other people include the DJ?

Question/Advice:

 

Makeup! I wear very Bare Escentuals everyday and have not planned to have anything special for the wedding. A friend of mine said I should think about buying heavier makeup for pictures such as Mac.

 

It seems like a waste of money to buy makeup for the one day. Also, if I decided to let the resort do my makeup how does that work?

 

Did anyone get their makeup done by the salon ? Do they use their makeup or yours? What brand is theirs?

 

Thanks gals!

Thanks for the ideas on the Parasols and the web site. I had not even thought about it before but I'm going to be in SF soon so I can buy them there! Thanks!

 

Cendcar, I was wondering the same thing on the make up. Great question. Hope someone can give us details :)

some girls have gotten their make-up done at the spa and been happy. Check out the info on page 1 (I actually only recently added hair and make-up there like a couple weeks ago).

Though both are fabulous--and fit you sooo nicely, I would go for the pronovias, especially if you are getting married on the beach. Either way though, you can't go wrong. Which one do you feel more excited about? Which do you feel more beautiful in? Picture yourself doing the day in each dress and which one just gets to you? Best of luck with the decision!

I am sorry, because I know this information is somewhere--but at this point I am bleary eyed... what are the dimensions of the round tables that are used for the receptions outside? THANKS!

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
