Hey Rachel,

My TA was in touch with Rocio. Apparently second week in May. I'll probably call her personally May 1st since I am banking on January 5th, 2012. I will let you know what I find out!

Has anyone heard what date exactly in May they are confirming dates for 2012?

Welcome Nicole! If you do a search of this thread you will find some girls talking about their experiences with iPods instead of a DJ. If I remember correctly, no one had any major complaints. I'm thinking about going that route too :)

New Bride here!! Getting married December 2011 =)

 

Since we have such a big group going, we have to do a private reception.

 

I was wondering about a DJ. I was looking into prices for DJ BOB and they are very good. But I am wondering if this is some place that we could maybe cut costs and just use my Ipod. But is the one speaker they have loud enough?

Thanks Manda, yes I was thinking of calling there tomorrow too. I am going to go with the Ipod, sounds like it works fine and save some $$$ and have all your own music.

Stephy - how did you plan your budget?  Were there any hidden expenses that you weren't aware of?

Also! 

What times are available for ceremonies?  And do you have to pick the time when you choose the date?  How long did you have for your private reception?  Did you do dancing after dinner - without extra charge?

 

Sorry for all the q's =P

I guess the budget depends on what you really want. 
We didn't have a strict budget.  We just went and looked at what we wanted, compared the options, and choose whatever we saw fit. We did have an initial amount in mind for the overall budget but we went about 30% over... which is alot, but to us doesn't seem like a big deal considering we had the most amazing day of our lives.  It was all worth it.  If you can't afford it, I'd say don't go for it.  We of course didn't go overboard on things, we stuck with what we wanted and could afford.

 

I don't think there were any surprises or hidden expenses... The only thing I was a bit confused with was the wedding package at the Grand Palladium.  Since we had so many guests and wanted a private reception, we had to pay alot of extras (chairs for the ceremony, sparkling wine toast, dinner, etc.)  It seemed like nothing was included in the package.  Remember that it covers only 8 guests!

 

They have plenty of times for the ceremony but you do have to pick a time when you book your date.  They can have up to 3 weddings a day but only one per time (does that make any sense?).  They do this in order to allow you to choose the location you want for the ceremony without having to worry about someone else booking the same location (both gazebos, church, beach, etc).  This you can pick when you get on site.

 

Our reception was at La Laguna (private) from 7PM to 11PM.  We did dinner and some dancing.  At 11PM, the DJ stopped playing but they will stop your music as well if you're using an ipod.  They didn't push us out but guests started leaving soon after the music stopped anyways.  I'm not quite sure how the dancing works at the a-la-carte restaurants, not sure whether you can have music and everything?  Other past brides could probably answer this one...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
