Rehearsal/Welcome Dinner Questions

Also, we're bringing together a lot of family and friends who have never met - I have divorced parents and both parents are remarried. My fiance's family is huge, so it's a great opportunity for everyone to meet and hang out before the actual wedding.
I feel the same as you. We are in the same boat as far as family spending time together and people traveling to be at the wedding. Plus I figure $21. a person for 30 people is not that bad. And my FI family is paying for the RD.

We are inviting everyone too. It is expensive but man I just didn't know where to draw the line. People are traveling so far!


Anyway, we priced out cocktails and apps at various places and ended up going with a full dinner b/c we got a great deal!! Most places charge by the hour for drinks and it could be $15-20 pp/ph so you might as well pay for dinner.


Here's the link:



They have the most amazing view and will rent you the whole second floor overlooking the bay for no charge. We got engaged there and it is so beautiful at sunset!!! :) Our dinner is $35 pp with a choice of lobster, steak of fish and includes soup or salad and dessert. We even got them to add an appetizer of coconut shrimp for that price. Drinks are by consumption and we are just going to tell people the first round is on us and the rest is cash bar. Let me know if you want more info!

I think this is the first time i have heard of that place but you can't beat the price. I will be excited to hear how it goes - this could be a great spot for our welcome dinner!

We are also doing our RD at Puerta Vieja. We're on a tight budget, so we opted for a fajita bar with beef, chicken and shrimp. Chips, salsa, guac plus one appetizer and desert is $25pp. Beer, wine, margs and mojitos is $15pp for 2 hours.


We loved this place so much, for a minute or two we actually considered having our wedding reception here. The service is great. Carlos, the Manager, is on top of everything!

    • 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?
