Thank you Dana for sharing all your pics with us!!!

 

I will add my date to the list when I get confirmation from Tiara...I'm waiting patiently as I have heard this part can take awhile. 

 

 

 

I made friends with a lady named Denise Heger on Facebook, she is a local of Bayahibe in Dominican Republic.  She posts the weather report almost everyday and takes pics of the sunrises and sunsets.  She can answer a lot of questions about the area and is a big fan of Dreams resorts...she also is a destination expert on Trip Advisor.  I highly recommend "friending" her, she is SO helpful with any questions you might have!!

we're having a legal ceremony, the services of a minister are included, but was just wondering who it might be!? glad you had a good experience at the spa, did you do a trial beforehand or just take the plunge on the day? (ps your hair and makeup looked amazing so i guess i will try for maria :))

 

hope all goes well with your party this weekend, are you wearing your dress again? how exciting!!!

 

also Dana...thank you for sharing those pictures, got lots of new idea's now!!!

Just please ladies, ENJOY EVERY MOMENT!!!!!!! So far, our party is getting crazier and bigger every day- which is a good thing:) It is at my mom-in-law's house and she is setting everything up just like we had it on the beach:) yeyeyey!!!!

 

NancM- thats great about your dress!!

Congrads katierenae!

 

I talked briefly with Elke when I went to get my hair done at the spa and she speaks really good english,  fyi.

 

I am praying for you, PP, that the storm passes! I think its supposed to be in the states by friday so I think you will be okay:)

 

hustyg, what kind of ceremony are you having? Also, I did go to the spa and I had Maria do my hair and makeup and nails- as well as hair and nails of my MOH's and she did an amazing job. I was nervous from past reviews of girls on here but everything turned out great:)

If you are talking about the photos you receive from the resort's wedding package then yes, they are only during the ceremony. If you purchase an HDC package, it depends on which one you choose as to how long they will stay.

Thanks so much for the weather wishes.... :)

 

Katie...thanks so much for that contact!!! Im goona add her right now!

 

Dana...thank you for the Spa info....but I have a question for past brides....I see they have french manicures at the spa, but does anyone know if they are the acrylic/gel type of nails? As in, fake ones? Thats what Im looking for.

I could do it in Canada, but the only day I have time would be Saturday...and my wedding is all the way on Friday which means my nails will start growing by then and you can see it at the root :(

 

If anyone has info, please let me know

 

Otherwise....I AM STRESSING with last minute details...

 

xoxo Bee

 

p.s. Nadia's wedding is tomorrow..... :) I only wish her the best!!!

Thanks Dana for posting all that wonderful information.

 

Uninspired - I chose the Seaside Grill for many of the same reasons as Dana.  We are expecting around 100 people and my FH and I did not want to pay per person when the meal was already included in the price of the hotel.  I also chose it because I loved the idea of having the reception on the deck and the pictures of the deck looked so beautiful.  We are also bringing down a Bose system and this is permitted at the Seaside Grill.  We will have the entire restaurant to ourselves so we don't have to worry about disturbing anyone.

Hey girls, i have been slowing figuring out some of the new features on the forum and learned how to tag thread so i thought it would be a great help to all of you future brides, since all new wedding review will be under the resort section of the forum, so i tagged all the wedding reviews that were in the wedding review thread and you can now see them on the right hand side of this page under the "Related Forum Threads"  I know there are also a bunch of reviews within this thread but not sure how to do that one.

I would double check on the fee of the minster cause if you look at the packages (at least what i remember from the ones I had) it says at the bottom its a $300 fee for the judge to legally marry you.

I got a free hair trial two days before the wedding, when you go to book it they should mention it to you and book directly with the spa.

I'm just gonna have to fo them Saturday and pray they don't totally grow out by Friday for the wedding..,

dolfin luck, my MOH is also getting the gel nails dine! She said it's better as it won't damage your nails as much. Do you know if they would last longer than acrylic nails?

 

 

Also, I'm having both photography and videography (HDC).. Do you guys know if I have to pay for two daypasses??

I was told by Tiara that I had to pay for a day pass for the photographer. So i'm guessing you will have to do so for both. Its 65$ each. I'm only having pictures done by HDC. Oh i'm so excited for you.

 

Gel nails are "better" for your nails... usually have a more natural look.

    • 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?
