A small curiousity ... for anyone has been to the resort.  How do we pay for things that are extra?  Like special wines, spa appts... etc?

 

Is linked to your room key?  Do they accept cash?

I do have some questions for brides that have already married or are really close

 

 

Did you buy special carry cases for your wedding dresses?

Did you print off special menues?  If so, did you now what you were eating ahead of time?

Do you ladies think the bride or Maid need a bag/clutch for reception?  I am thinking no

 

Thanks for all your help so far!

 

Hi Nicc80.

I had a white dress bag to carry my dress. It was $10 from David's Bridal. I have read not to use any color other than white, as it can stain your dress.

I made special menus for the reception and brought them to Mexico. I planned the menu and let Cecilia know before we went to Mexico. It took me a full day to make the menus.

One of m bridesmaids had a clutch for the reception. It was small, had some lip gloss, safety pins, bobby pins, and I think that is it.

They will ask you for your room number and you will pay upon checkout. Not sure about the spa. I can't remember if I paid the spa directly or not. I am sure they accept cash but they do not always have change. I remember them printing out a receipt that I signed, but not sure if it was a cc receipt or not.

I am Jewish and my fiance is Christian, so we wanted to incorporate a very small portion to represent each of our faiths.  I havent emailed Cecillia yet, but I am really hoping to be able to be in contact with who will be performing our ceremony to discuss this further.

 

Any advice, or suggestions?

 

I had a Legal ceremony but I have asked to include also 2 symbolic ceremony, the sand and the hand ceremony.

I have sent to Cecilia what I wanted in the 2 ceremony ans she gave them to the Judge so I'm sure there will not be any problem to performing the ceremony as you prefere.

Just to give you an idea, the order of my ceremony has been:

- Legal mexican vows

- Signing documents for the widness

- Sand ceremony

- Hand ceremony

- Ring ceremony

- Signing documents for us

- Final declaration

Duration 25 minutes

I payed the extra with credit card before leaving the resort. I received the total amount in my room the day before.

For my long trip I wasn't sure to be able to carry with me my wedding dress because the size was more then the accepted as hand bag.

For this reason I have put it inside an "hands suits", folded up in 4 parts :-(

As soon as I was on the plane, I have asked to the hostess to open it and hang somewhere. She allowed me to hang it in their private wardrobe.

 

As regards the menu, I have decided it 1 month before but I have confirmed it only when Cecilia aked me 1 week before going.

I have printed it and they set up on the table.

The reason I didn't want taste the menu was because I wasn't able to change the printed menu ;-)

We are doing a Symbolic ceremony as well.  We are writing vows... my fiancé really wants to speak from the heart. I am a little nervous about this... I suggest asking your planner who to go about it.  I have no idea how long/short to make it, but I hear the ceremony is short.  I will let you know if I find out anything else.  Do you have any specific questions about it?

THANK YOU beach bride.  Father of the bride wants to know:)

One last question, did anyone who has already married at the resort use the printer to make anything?  We were thinking of printing our menus at the resort.

    • 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?
