http://www.michaelsteingard.comMichael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

Any suggestions or experiences with how this works would be greatly appreciated. Thanks brides!

I know they are busy, but its really hard to book anything else until I have our ceremony time! We want to book our photographer and LaBarcaza for our reception, and I can't secure those until I hear back from her!! Argghhh!!
I just had to vent!!! Sorry guys!!!

Ive also emailed Sandra a week ago and no reply - however, the last few times shes been pretty good getting back to me within a few days! We're having problems with our wedding dates/times also so I understand your frustration! Hang tight, hopefully she'll reply soon!! We're trying go get a civil ceremony for May, but the judge isnt available when we need him - aparently we have to be in Dominican 48 hours (2 business days) before we can get married and our flights go down on Saturdays/Sundays - therefore we need a Wednesday or later that week for our wedding! Anybody else having a civil wedding and having any problems with the judge?

I'm getting married at the Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana on April 7th 2011 (staying at the Majestic Elegance April 2-9th 2011) and am looking to share a photographer. If anyone else is getting married at this time and a)has a photographer in mind that they would like to share costs on or is looking to share a photographer (as I have one in mind but her costs + travel=are too expensive for just us), then please get in touch.

Has anyone else been frustrated with the pricing/stipulations frequently being changed? She emailed me an updated list in March, but then I found out (through Facebook and these forums) re: other options/pricing a month later.
Ex: Reception decoration packages. The original one she sent me said minimum 20 people, but now it's only MAXIMUM 20 people with additional charges per person after that (which for me would work out to $750 just for 45 guests). I think it's ridiculous, especially since they are only including 3 centre pieces for that price.
Also, did you know that the flat rate of $500 per hour for rental of space, set up, and open bar (national) is only up to 40 people? Apparently that has changed as well!
Be careful ladies...make sure you ask lots of questions and don't assume anything. It sounds like pricing will still change too. You definitely don't want to be surprised when you get there and end up paying much more than you anticipate.
Due to my frustration with the poor communication between myself and Sandra, I am not considering having my reception at Jellyfish Restaurant instead. They seem to be far more flexible and accommodating (even a little cheaper too).
Has anyone else experienced this with Sandra?
Sorry for my venting...this has been extremely frustrating.
