Alicia,

Are you getting married at the Iberostar Beach or the Iberostar Suites? This may be the issue.

If you don't have at least 50+ people Calabash isn't an option, and the Mediterranean is way to small for a wedding over 30 people or so, I was in there.  So I don't know what I'd do if we weren't able to do it there!

 

I'm not really stressed about it yet, I'm thinking (hoping) people will book with their tax returns!

Heather & Court,

I give you guys credit! My wedding is right around the same time as yours & I only have 1 more person to book (my sister). But we do only have 20 people coming including ourselves! 

& I thought 1 person was enough stress for me! I can't wait til the 3 month out mark so I can actually "plan"!

 Alicia, 

 

If you are talking to Tiffany ... then you are most likely referring to the Suites Steakhouse. She is talking about the Beach Steakhouse.

I will keep you all updated!  Our RSVPs are due February 1st so I am sure I will have a better idea then.  That's also the last day to book with our TA.  I am just totally lost at what are numbers will be.  We sent out 95 invites inviting 180 persons.  When I did the calculations before sending out the invites, I was estimating almost 80 persons coming based on positive responses from the save the dates.  Now my estimate is down to 55, but only 13 have booked!  I am still missing 75 RSVPs that account for 147 persons.  And, people I totally thought were coming that kept saying "I can't wait" are now like "we have to see."  If they are just now saying "we have to see" then I am thinking they are going to say no because I am pretty sure you would know by now.  O man.  Wedding planning is stressful.  I can't plan decor, reception venue, etc. until I have a better idea of the number!  

I think we invited roughly 100-110 people and we have 30 coming. My travel agent predicted all along we would have 30 (or roughly 1/3), she said people always are excited but plans change and many people end up not making it. I think with planning a destination wedding there is always a risk some people you had hoped could be there won't make it, but at the end of the day, this is a different type of experience and if I wanted a wedding with 200 people I would have planned it at home. All that truly matters is that I'm marrying my best friend and so long as we both show up, the rest is all a bonus as far as I'm concerned! Of course my head was ready to explode when we were up to the last day to book back in the spring and my Dad and brother still hadn't booked, but it all worked out and they got themselves booked in time after all. No wedding is stress free!

At the 3 month Mark they send you the documents to fill out, they still don't answer questions any faster or any more helpfully haha. I can send them to you now if you want, just send me your email address. I am at the Beach resort.

Does anyone know what the tables are like.. or how the seating is set up in the Calabash Restaurant for a Semi-Private? We will have about 60 people so I'm curious to how it will be set up. I saw some pictures previous and it looked like round tables, but the wedding coordinator says it will be square tables and hold 10 people.

 

Can anyone confirm this, or does anyone have any pictures?

 

Thanks!

    • 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?
