How far in advance?

Recommended Posts

How far in advance should I be contacting some of the vendors prior to our wedding? We are getting married in May I need to get the flowers and photography taken care of. Just wasnt sure if I should be doing this now or if it was too soon.

Hey Date twin!! I would start now. If you are using the resort photog with the free package, you would want to make yourself known to him. If you are going with one of the other packages, I think your time will be blocked. If you need more time though, you would want to tell him.


I am using an outside photog and I had to book him 3-4 months ago.


I also used silk flowers, so I booked that in November.

My TA has the contact info for cakes/flowers, so I just have to send her pics and she takes care of the rest.

If you wanna compare pricing or are particular about things you may want to start a bit early.

I set up my photography with Michael prior to leaving for jamaica (i believe it was a month in advance) but I waited to order my flowers at my meeting with Chandlyn.

    • 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.
