@FutureMrsMT- We are totally going to be wedding buddies!  We are arriving on the 28th, getting Married on the 2nd and leaving the 5th. It's crazy how many weddings this resort does. It doesn't seem like they ever have down time. I am sooooo excited too. We just sent our official invitations out this week so now I can get more into the fun stuff. We are also doing the paradise package. I have not made any selections yet on any flowers, cake or anything else. Now that my invites are done I am going to be able to focus on that. The only thing we have selected is ceremony and reception location and we chose the lobby terrace for both, but I have been sort of interested in "le petit creperie" for the reception now. How far are you in the planning process right now with the resort?

Hey Ladies,

 

I wanted to get some clarification/ opinions on the different types of rooms. My family and friends have been asking me and I am getting confused with all the different things I am reading and want to make sure I understand them correctly. My contract for my guests are "junior suites" and if they wish to upgrade they may. I heard previously they are all considered "Ocean View" in the sense that nothing faces the other side of the resort. Is this true? Looking at some of the pics is looks like some could be inner facing rooms though. Also, what is considered a "Junior suite deluxe Ocean view"? Is it looking straight out to the ocean or just facing and you may see part of it depending on where your room is located? I read that the "Junior suite privilege" has a view of the pool area in the privilege area. Is that true? Lastly has anyone stayed in the "Honey moon suite" or any of the "master suites"? If so, can you please tell me your experience with these rooms and if it was worth the money? We are leaning towards the "Honey money suite", but i haven't seen the pricing on it yet.

 

Thanks for your help! :)

Do any of you know anything about the resort DJ by any chance?

Hello beachbride555 - I am wondering about the same thing. Have you gotten feedback from any other brides yet?

Hi Everyone!

 

I've been reading this forum for a while and it's been so helpful (especially in making our decision to choose OCT)!  I've contacted Ana a few times to officially book a date and time and get whatever forms she needs filled out to make the deposit - my fiance spoke to her on the telephone and she did confirm that the date/time in May is available but she still hasn't emailed us the info yett. Does anyone on here have these forms (blank) so I could fill out and send off??
 

I'm just trying to get this part done so I can officially book travel arrangements (my travel agent is crawling up my behind) and so I can get invitations out early to guests so they have time to save and plan.

 

Any help is appreciated. Thank you! 1-pray.gif

We went with Paul Schrank from Playaweddings. . .They did an amazing job and not once did I or my husband feel like we were being video taped. Everything he captured was completely authentic.

Worth looking into if you are in the market for a true professional! 

Wow Sandy!  I feel so blessed to have been able to watch this incredible video!  What a magical day and you looked STUNNING!  Must contact Paul Schrank immediately:)

Room clarification:  The junior suite rooms will not have a view of the ocean (maybe of the pool, garden, etc.), junior suite ocean view will not directly face the ocean but will have a view of the ocean from the balcony (the same as the basic junior suite but higher up...ours was an inner room with an extensive view of the ocean and kids pool), one of our guests stayed in the Ocean front master suite (was on main floor, ocean front, two full rooms basically....one was the bedroom with bathroom and the other was like a living room/dining table and second half bath, terrace had shower, jacuzzi tub....it was nice but was broken into (from terrace door) during the wedding and things were stolen), privilege rooms are the same but with extra stuff in the fridge and are located on the one side of the resort (some of those have jucuzzi tubs on the balcony).  I believe the only difference between regular and deluxe in having the jacuzzi tub on the balcony/terrace.  I don't know if they actually have a honeymoon specific suite - more like a free honeymoon package (some perks with respect to room service, additional breakfast, champagne..things like that).  

 

We originally wanted to pay the extra to get the master suite room, but decided that the pricing was just too crazy....honestly we were banking on a free upgrade when we got there.  We went during spring break and did get upgraded to an ocean view junior suite, but were hoping for a master suite (wanted the second room to get ready etc).  My husband was quite disappointed, but the resort was full and they couldn't do anything about it.  Our second week we chose to forgo the ocean view to be closer to the party pool - we were a good ten minute walk from our room before.

 

Hope this helps!

    • 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?
