I am taking extra decor for the ceremony because all we have is the arch & white chairs. I am taking fushia satin chair sashes & having the resort make some decor out of bamboo sticks (7' tall) and wrapping them in ribbon so the excess ribbon will blow in the wind at the top to stake in the sand by the aisle. I am also bringing freeze dried flowers for the aisle & flower girl to throw and making program fans for each guest.

Is anyone doing OOT bags? If so what are you putting in them & when do you plan on giving them out. We are doing them & so far I am putting in mugs.....and I don't know what else yet or when to give them out. We have guests coming in on Saturday & Monday.
thanks so much for that info. We were planning on the sunset wedding, I actually just switched it last week, I figure I can use that money to do my own decor which i was doing anyway and it seemed like i was really paying the extra $ for the sunset.
i am in the process of getting table decor and decor for the ceremony now.
what did you decide to do about the photographer? I just hope that the onsite personis good quality I want great pictures
I am also getting together OOT bags, I am putting in lil things like sunblock, chap stick, monogrammed koozies, packs of tylenol and i am going to leave them in the rooms. I found these really great startfish wine bottle stoppers i am putting at the tables for gifts also. Beau-coup.com has great gifts for a good $
im getting really excited how about you??

Thanks Hockeymom! I wish I had more time to read through the posts because it seems the answers to most questions are here somewhere.

 

I think I'm going to buy an aisle runner here and take it down along with OOT bags and favors. My fiance and I will go with real flowers and everyone else can use the real touch which I'll buy here too.

 

Everything else I'll deal with when I get there. I had all these visions a few months ago but now I just want this over with and to have a good time. The most important thing is to exchange vows..the rest are the details which at the end of the day won't matter.

 

Thanks for the info about the photog. I feel so much better. My cousin is attending the wedding no matter what so this works out perfectly for me!

Hi Jess,
Wild thing water sports offers a private cruise @ $50 per person minium of 40 ppl. I think that you can also do a non provate cruise @ $50. per person...

Hi all, Im new to the website and I am planning my destination wedding in 6 months- Weding day is jan 6th at BEaches NEgril at 4.00pm.

I am expecting about 50 ppl from different countries and would like a gd experience for them so i chose the $75 PP dinner but will get back $15 pp as we are booking more than 10 rms.

 

I plan to be wed on the beach gazebo and am trying to get the flowers , invitations, colors to match, favors etc. Gosh its stressful.

 

What do you think about reception locations? I really want people to dance but would like some privacy too.

I want people to dance as well, but I'm thinking that you probably have to rent a dancefloor? Unless you can have the reception by the pool or something? I haven't really received information from Amber in regards to where we can have the reception yet, so this part is still up in the air for us.

Hi,

I am getting married at Beaches, Negril on November 8, 2009 at 3pm! I am super excited and obviously a bit nervous. We have purchased the $2400 photo and video package and i was wondering if anyone had a video we could see?

Also, what kinds of locations are there for the receptions and what kinds of additional options do they give you when you get there?

 

Thanks,

Rhonda

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
