Hey Maura,

 

Do you think it would be better for me to have my ceremony at 4 or 4:30? What time did the sun go down/start getting dark? How long did the ceremony run? I'm going to have a cocktail hour as well followed by the reception. Let me know what you think.

Thank you!  The wedding was at 4:30 (but I ran a bit late) and the cocktail hour was 5:30-6:45 and the reception from 7:00-11:00.  It worked perfectly!

Hi Brides!

I am using a destination wedding travel agent who has quoted me $200/night/person for Aug. 2011. for the Suites.  I saw on Expedia from Newark, NJ 3 nights hotel + air is about $900.  The travel agent says she will match the lowest price/shop around with wholesalers to find promos. Not sure what that means but once I book my trip with her hopefully this will make sense.  The TA told me she booked a wedding for May 2011 for $142night/person at the Suites.  Hopefully she can get me a deal like that for our guests!  Air is averaging $340/person/roundtrip from Newark, NJ.

Hey DeAngelis:

 

I live in Yonkers. We advised our guests that they can stay as long as they want. My TA had sent me a sample travel wedding calendar so that's why I had the 5 days/4nights. I do realize it is ideal for people to travel in for 4 days though and then decide if they want to come earlier or stay later. So assuming most people do arrive the day before the wedding, I guess besides the wedding rehearsal, we'd also have to have the meet and greet at the same time which can work itself out and be the rehearsal dinner. Perhaps I'll make that change on our website. 

 

Your wedding date is 12/3/11 or am I mistaken? That's actually my best friend's/maid of honor's birthday :) Congrats!

We are telling most of our guests to come for 4 days/3 nights and if they want or can stay longer we encourage it. To some guests who don't really have the money to come, it might seem like alot when you are asking them to come for 5 days. I believe the min of nights you can stay at the Iberostar is 3 nights.  I'm having my wedding on a Saturday so people only have to take off Thursday and Friday from work. In the end, the people who want to be there will do whatever it takes to make it happen. Just ingnore anyone that's being negative of giving you a headache...the only thing that matters is the man of your dreams waiting for you at the alter.

 

Where do you live in NY? I grew on Long Island and my FI in Brooklyn. :)

Right now rates @ the Suites I see are $373 per night. I just did a general online search for air & room and it's about $1,010 pp for 5 days/4nights. In a way I'm starting to wonder if we should've picked a less "luxurious" hotel and went to a resort that's practical for all. My fiance feels differently. He said we can't please everyone, which I understand, but I don't want to hear people bickering either. I'm just going to pray about it and hope everything works out in the end.  After all this is supposed to be a happy time in our lives.

We announced at our engagement party in August 2010 that we were doing a destination wedding to give all of guests and bridal party more than enough time to book. Both my fiance and I are in sales so we've been informing (selling) our guests about the hotel and airline rates, I could prob do this for a living and it's only been a couple of months lol. I'm extremly suprised that I have guests and flights booked before my STD even went out. Some of our guests said that they will be using their tax return to purchase their flight.
 

You need to get your guests excited about their vacation and how much fun they're going to have with all your closet family and friends.

A part of me feels like many of them are waiting for their tax return before make a move. My fiance and I are going to be booking our room at the of this month, as our TA told us we had more than enough time. But still it'd be exciting to see at least a few people book, ya know?

Hey Ladies,

 

I was feeling the same way a few months ago.  As of right now i have 14 people booked 60 coming lol. I am not sure where those 46 people are staying :) But don't let it stress you out. Just focus on your special day. Your closest loved one will be there and that's all that really matters. I was stressed about price/who was coming but i had to just move on and be happy I am marrying the love of my life! :)

 

It will all work out the way it should girls!!!

So I have 18 pp booked out of 45 rsvps with 6 weeks to go.  My groomsmen aren't even booked!  I refuse to stress.  If it's only 18 people I will be just as happy and I will save money!!!  Look at the up side :-)

I don't remember which bride it was that emailed Tai Flora about the floating candle center piece set up for $20 + tax. Just wanted to know if she ever found out more about this etc. If you're reading this, let us know. :-)

Ugrades are based on availibility. If a room is available an upgrade is possible, but not guaranteed. No one can guarantee an upgrade until you are actually at the resort and there is a room available.

    • 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?
