Thanks so much for posting the pics of the Rooftop Terrace and the Lobby Terrace -- it puts everything into a whole different perspective.  I have seen some other photos where neither location looked especially nice, but your photos are making me reconsider...

I must have missed it..who had/where did you see these pictures?  I'm feeling the same way since being told the lobby terrace was the only spot available to us.

Does anyone know how we can go about reserving a dinner without having to pay an additional fee? Even if it is in the buffet restaurant that is okay, I'd just like to book about 20 people for a rehearsal dinner.  Thanks! :)

I'm having a 'welcome' brunch the morning after we arrive in the buffet and there was no additional charge. The hotel seems to be picky about making reservations at the restaurants. You have to be a "privilege" guest to make reservations and you can only reserver for/with other privilege guests.

Thanks @ajhutch! :)

 

I really love the lit paper lanterns hanging across the lobby terrace like @sandyborie used! That is absolutely stunning (I recopied her video link below for those who haven't seen her videography).

 

My fiancee and I aren't using a planner, but I was wondering if anyone knows...  does Ana have lit paper lanterns that we could rent from the resort, OR, if I brought my own - would she or the staff hang them for me?

Also - any suggestions on where to buy these types of round paper lanterns to hang?

Hi girls!

I just got my wedding highlight video and OMG!!!!  

I felt the need to share just how magical OCT was!!!!!

Here is the link:

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!

Hello fellow OCT brides!

 

My wedding date is June 25, 2013 and have been making great headway so far.  Got the dress, the BM dresses and the photographer booked.  I am doing some research now into the package options at the resort.  My FI and I would like to save as much money as possible as we are planning on putting a down payment on a house and hoping for a honeymoon baby so we were thinking of doing the a la carte option for our reception but then I see pictures of the outdoor reception with the dancing etc. and I want that too.  Has anyone on here had the reception at the a la carte?  We have approximately 45 people coming.  We were thinking of bringing our BOSE sounddock with us and having our own party on the beach lol!  Not sure how that would go over with the resort however.  I also saw that you can have a bonfire on the beach for an additional cost, anyone done that?

 

We opted for a destination wedding to relieve some stress and cost, I didn't realize how much actually goes into a wedding destination or not, yikes!   SO much to do!

 

Thanks so much for any advice!! 

 

xoxo

Rachelle

Hi Rachelle, My wedding was on June 2, 2012. I wanted to have a bonfire the night before as a welcome party, but you cannot be on the beach after 7pm between may and November because it is the turtle season. We gave up on that since before 7 seemed to be too early. Same about a beach party for the actual wedding. We had a la carte on the lobby terrace and it was amazing. We were outside but ladies appreciated being able to wear high heals :) Well sorry to ruin some of your plans (bonfire/ bech party). I would still check with Ana, who knows maybe they changed rules. Happy planning!

ladies, I have had a lot of trouble planning my wedding since being switched to working with Angelica.  I finally got fed up after emailing her 5 times and calling twice in a one month period of time with no response.  I spoke with the resort manager, Alejandro, and he will be switching me back to Ana. (fingers crossed.)  He asked me to email him so he will have all the facts.  I would advise you to all do the same if you have a problem working with Angelica.

 

Alajandro's email address is:

rrpp.hpc@h10.es

 

Best of Luck!

    • 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?
