sol,

 

as you said:

"These not only happens at big resorts, even small and pretty ones are guilty of the same thing.., so pay attention! and get what YOU want...."

"GET WHAT YOU WANT"... this was the best advise i received when i was down there... you definitely have to get what you want... you've paid a large sum of money to these resorts / vendors... so if its not the way you wanted, or expected, let them know... make sure you get what you pay for...

 

Julie...

Great tips. How wonderful are you to let us in on all the secrets. One wedding I was at we had to keep waiting for swimmers to get out of our frames before we took any photos! Of course they were kids and wanted to be in the picture.lol

Sol, thank you for the tips! I will be in the area next month to choose one of our top 7 hotels (it was 23) and would have never thought about the shower, or the chairs!

 

Happy planning!!

    • 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?
