    How did you find out that the Beach BBQ and Wine Party are on Wednesday and Thursdays? Is there a place to view a schedule of all events?

    I'm so excited! I feel like I am finally getting somewhere with my planning...and I am so glad that we picked the Paradisus.
    Someone on another forum sent me pics of the BBQ and Wine beach parties and others say they have them weekly on those nights. I'm going to double check with Laikin though just to be sure...

    If I can find the pics I'll post for you.

        Wow, thanks for sharing all of the great information about Paradisus Punta Cana.... it is one of the resorts that I'm really interested in for our November 2008 wedding - just waiting for pricing from my TA. Is there anyway you still have the 2008 pricing for resort? If you could email it to me when you get a chance that would be wonderful! Keep all the good info coming!

                Hey there! Congrats!

                You do NOT have to be a resident for any certain number of days in DR. We are arriving WEd and marrying Saturday (BTW -- you're leaving for DR on my bday!!).

                I've spoken to a TON of brides who have been married there ... and it sounds beautiful. I've even heard good things about the resort photograph, adn seen lots of his pictures. Of course not as creative and time-intensive as the photogs we bring from here at home, but a good option nonetheless.

                Check out the forums on Debbie's Dominican Republic Travel Pages - 1,000's of Resort Reviews, Tour, Scuba and Wedding Information because there is a multi-page thread othat discusses Melia Caribe in detail, with TONS of pictures and some great advice for you!

                      I would get in touch with the hotel wedding planner yourself as soon as you can and ask what dates they have available or even if you have been allocated a date.

                      My boyfriend's sister (who is getting married at the Bahia Principe Punta Cana) was also given information about having to be in the country for five days before the wedding (not including weekends as well!!!) by her travel agent and she didn't know the actual date of her wedding. As time was getting closer we booked the first week she is there and after getting in touch the the wedding planner myself to ask the date of her wedding, we have found out that we will miss it by one day. We have also let her know when when her wedding is. Her travel agent hasn't really given her any information.

                      Hope this helps.
                      Valerie
