Back from my Wonderful ROR Wedding!!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing! Can't wait to see your pics! I just have a few questions...

 

Since you got married at one, and the sun is usually pretty bright at that time, did you find yourself squinting alot during the ceremony? My contacts make my eyes pretty sensitive to sunlight so I am a little nervous about this. I don't want to mess up all of my wedding ceremony pics!

 

Did you have tables at the Poolside reception? Did you feel like you had enough room to dance? I was going to do the Seagrape, but now I am rethinking after you mentioned the noise from the main stage.

 

Did any of your guests get to eat in the other restaurants? Are tips kind of expected to make a reservation? You aren't the first bride to mention that reservations were only available after a tip was offered.

 

Overall it sounds like you had a great time! Congrats!

Thanks so much!

The beach gazebo is actually right near the side of the hotel, so that it is always shaded, except early morning. I was shaded walking down the aisle and didn't have any problems with squinting during the ceremony, the sun wasn't on us, it was nice because then you don't get so hot!!

As for the poolside reception, there are already white rod-iron tables and chairs there, then Nikki brought some extra chairs. There was plenty of seats for everyone, and the dance floor was definately big enough. Again I had 50 people, but you have the entire pool area to yourself, we were really glad we switched. I didn't switch until the day before the wedding, but with our I-Pod speakers you definately would not have heard our music at the Seagrape. Not to say teh Seagrape wasn't a nice spot :)

Only a few of my guests ate at the A La Carte restaurants, but were only able to get into the Mammee Bay or the Japanese restaurant. They had to go at the time of the first or second sitting and pay to get in...most of my guests didn't want to put out the extra money. This is the one thing that realy upset everyone that went to my wedding. I would say they are waiting for people to offer money, because every night we would walk by the restaurants and they were EMPTY!

    • 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?
