Hmmm...I have Darienne now, and at first it was really great, she responded quickly, sent me the form where I was actually able to include some of the ideas I had in mind. But, since busy season has seemed to have kicked in, not so much. I'm not actually worried about it anymore. It was really frustrating when I wanted to put my deposit down and neither the Westin or Divi were getting back to me, come to think of it, after all of the work I did with Divi also, they haven't contacted me about confirming to this date! Trying to get everything else in order now, I have sadly just ordered my invitations ( I really thought I could get everything done in 6 months!) How about you Kathie? Is everything esle going to plan?

It's so exciting to read about your experience!! We have just recently decided to move our Manchebo wedding date from April 2012 to October 2011!! A little less time to prepare, but it will only be a few of us now rather than 45...the reception will really just be a dinner now for us, so it will be much easier. I can't wait to read more about your whole wedding process and pick your brain! :)

I've heard really great things about Bucuti; we are getting married at the Manchebo October 28.  We just booked our rooms today!  I'm getting really excited to go...I've never been to Aruba either.  We moved our wedding date six months closer, so everything is going really fast now! 

Good luck with all of your planning :)

Hi Jen,

 

I am getting married at the Occidental in two months. So far, the planning process has been okay. We are now on our third wedding coordinator. First we had Kimberley, then Eliana and now Audrey. Each of them have been very nice, however with each coordinator change I'm starting to get more worried. I spoke to Audrey about two weeks ago. She was super nice, very friendly, and seemed to be on top of everything. My only problem is that she was supposed to get back to me a few days after our call, and I am still waiting to hear from her. I emailed to follow up, but nothing back. I'm just hoping there wasn't another coordinator change!

 

Has anyone else has this same experience? I understand that they are very busy with other weddings, so taking some time to get back to me is understandable.

 

Has anyone been married at the Occidental recentley? If so, how was your experience? Any advice/recommendations?!

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!

 

Christy

Yeah I think your resort is not very far from Bucuti.  I have always wanted to do a DW but didn't know where.  One of my clients actually got married at Bucuti also and she said if your looking to do a DW you can not go wrong in Aruba!  Wow, yours is definitely coming up quick, the time does really go by so quick.  How did you decide on Aruba??

Awesome, It's good to hear all the positive comments! Would you recommend any certain rooms to stay in for our honeymoon?  Everyone says the Tara Beach Suites are nice.

    • 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?
