Same Day Weddings?

Recommended Posts

Our resort does 3 weddings a day. And they are booked solid the week we arrive. So yes, this is going to be interesting in terms of who gets what restaurant for their reception, what ceremony sites will be given to whom....

 

Now I have a headache...but in God we trust.

On my day I think they had 4 brides. I knew about the one after mine as we chatted up the whole time at the resort. Oh that was soo fun going back and forth tthe whole time on what we had planned. I think they had a 1pm, mine at 3pm (which turned into almost 4 because of the hurrican delay) and then the 4pm which turned into a 5pm Sunset wedding. The 5pm girl actually canceled for the following day because of the weather. The 1pm girl I saw her at the spa in the morning and actually never saw her again till the following day. Since dealing with hurricane, we had to move all ideas to different sections of the resort that morning, I didn't have a problem with it even though I horribly wanted the beach and the tiki hut for my reception. Looking back on it.. I am completely happy with what we chose in the end. I had an outdoor reception on a private elevated deck by the pools. I know Alyssa (4pm wedding) chose to have her reception at the steakhouse indoors. Only time I ran back into Alyssa was after our receptions were done by the main evening bar.

 

I loved my day and felt totally like a princess the entire time even knowing so many other brides and b2b were around. You forget about everyone else.. or at least I did.. all sense of time, who else was around .. you name it. It's a day that is all about you and you will feel it all happen so quick too..

On my wedding day, there were 3 weddings (12pm, 2pm, and 4pm - mine). Each bride had their reception dinner in a different a la carte restaurant. I only ran into one of the other brides at the bar where both groups ended up for dancing/drinking after about 9pm. I have no clue what the 3rd one did. It helps that we had a HUGE resort. We all did our own thing and it was fine.

    • 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?
