Hi Ladies,

 

I havent been on in awhile, I have been working on getting our website/STDs out to all our guests. I am getting married on 2/6/11 and recently started working Yamina on all the plans. I was wondering if anyone else (who is planning a wedding now with her) was told we can only use DJ Mannia? I am a little bit nervous because I wanted to go with DJ Dormixx instead, but Yamina said they only work with Mannia Company. Had anyone used him before?

 

Also, did Yamina mention to anyone that they cant confirm venue (aka X Lounge, etc) until a month prior to the wedding?

 

Thanks ladies, happy planning.

I am not sure about the DJ thing, we are just using our iPod. Also, Yamina said they can't confirm a venue until a month prior because that is when they know the availability of the locations.

HTH, Happy Planning!

True, Balam-Ha works great for 50+ guests and I have heard Yamina can help with the vendors. But I also now that Excellence has only ONE prefered caterer and those guys are good! I was able to attend a wedding this last Saturday and OMG! It was amazing. I will see if there are pics of the event...

Yeah I just spoke with Yamina last weekend and she said the said the same thing about the DJ, but I've read good reviews on DJ Mannia. Plus if you book during February you get 30%!! So since you have to go with them I would definitely book asap.

Yamina also told us the same thing about the venue. She said they close one restaurant a night and they vary. This is a bit annoying because I would like to get an idea where the reception will actually be held. However, I Do think the cocktail hour is definitely X Lounge, but don't quote me on this. msnwink.gif

Hey Ladies,

Has anyone used an outside vendor for design/coordination? I found a company called Dazzling Details but they are only in Los Cabos and after searching this forum (and many websites in Spanish:)) I cant seem to find anyone similar to them. The resort is great but I would like to be able to add some unique things...linens, chairs, shell name cards etc. Any suggestions? I'm getting so close to my date and afraid I'm going to have to go with the resort options only..

Thanks....nervous bride to be...feedback.gifgotsearch.gif

Hi Everyone,

 

My name is Cheryl and I am getting married at EPM on Sept 16, 2010. This thread is awesome so far and has given me some good tips.

We went to EPM when it first opened and at that point we were not engaged, but knew this was the place for our wedding. The gazebo is my dream location come true.

6 months away and now I am starting to panic. Bascially I have bought my dress and invitations but that is all we have done so far. Time to get my butt in gear!

Okay ladies I am officially 1 month away from my wedding and I am starting to panic. I have so much left to do and so little time. On top of that some of my guests are starting to back out because of the whole mess going on in Cancun.

    • 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!!
