Hi there, I feel your stress. I waited 3 weeks after sending my MC information in to Tiara. I resent it 2 extra times before I finally received an email from tiara saying my deposit went through and she would be sending a written confirmation that same day. I believe she means via mail. However, when she sent the email confirming my deposit, she didn't say the date was confirmed. I am assuming the date I requested is confirmed as I want to book my travel arrangements.

Good luck. I think she must just be overwhelmed with the paperwork. I keep trying to remember they are living "Island time" Ya mon, no problem mon. Everything is in slow motion. Liane

This Island time thing is going to drive me MAD. I'm a bit of a control freak and like to know whats happening and when and I think someone is going to have to slip a valium in my wine when I get there lol Tiara confirmed our date in an email but that was it. We have booked and paid deposits for 17 people so far but heard nothing more. I forwarded our wedding reservation form and asked her to let me know when she needs anything else ie deposit. She sent me a very short email saying date is confirmed to you already. But when I read that you have all paid deposits I worry I'll get there and be told its not booked!!

VallieR I'm so jealous your getting to have a look :-)
Would you let me know how private the beach location and gazebo are? I was at Punta Cana Majestic last year and saw a few weddings from my sun lounger but people were able to walk right up to the wedding in bikinis which I'm really worried about. I was talking to a girl on facebook who told me that she saw a wedding on the pier at la romana and people were swimming up to the pier and crowding round watching!!! Not what I want
Thanks can't wait to hear your opinions, when are you going?

Hi All!

 

New to this forum and wanted to share my info.

 

- ~50 guests, we are staying at the Dreams Resort

- Getting married Monday Feb 15th at 3pm

- Having a catholic ceremony at St. Stanislaus Church

- Reception at the Seaside Grill (I think...)

- Bringing a photographer with us

 

Communication has been pretty difficult with the resort so far. Also we kind of didnt think the dates through and we will be going away during Spring Break...so we are hoping that its not too rowdy, should have made the reservations for the week before or after!

Next question ladies ... have you decided on the reception details? I'm thinking Seaside Grill with the Silver package, which (when you add in gratuities, etc.) comes to about $39 US per person.

It kinda sucks to pay for food when there will be free food all around us. (for 20 guests, that's 800$).

What are you ladies doing?

I am soo confused about everything. I am having my reception at the seaside grill also, but I am paying 1000 USD plus 26% tax to reserve the entire restaurant for the evening (so noone else can dine there that evening). With this option I apparently dont have to pay per person either. Was this option presented to any of you brides?

Did you get this info from Tiara?
Welcome to the forum, it has been a great help to me, i hope it will be to you too.

The wedding in Paradise package is free if you have booked 5 rooms. My travel agent sent all my room confirmation numbers to Tiara. Then I am just adding extras I want, and using a different photographer.

Welcome, LaRomanaBride!

I think you have the earliest wedding date out of all of us, so hopefully you will be able to give us some great advice based on your experience after your wedding!! :)

 

I am also doing the free package with an upgrade (paying per person) for the private ceremony, but what you mentioned with the $1000 plus tax flat rate is interesting... I didn't know such an option existed!

 

There have been a lot of pics and info posted throughout this thread so I hope you find it useful!!

    • 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?
