Hi Jessica ~ Welcome and congrats.....

I am not sure if I can offer much assistance, yet I am positive one of the other lovely brides will be able to help you.  I chose the Ultimate package, bought my decor down with me (including flowers and linens), I used HDC for photography and had a cake made by the staff at DLR.  

 

Are there any questions you have specifically?

Ive secured my date and chose the Ultimate wedding package but looking to possibly downgrade so I can hire outside vendors. I'm currently looking for a photographer but i'm unsure how the resort's photographer is? If anyone can send me some links for decorators, cakes, photographers and etc I'd soooo appreciate it. Thanks in advance :)))

Hi Jess819,

 

I used the DJ that the resort provided for us.  I made a bunch of playlists on my ipod for "must play" songs and then let him do what he wanted.  We had a great time!

The photographer was a friend of a friend so I can't really help you in that aspect....

 

Good luck!

Sabrina

Hi ladies :)))xoxo

 

Hope all the planning coming along nicely and hope @chanelo you are not panicking too much sweetie, your day is coming super fast lol :D I am not far behind you as well lol :D

@Amy, hon thank you so much for asking, we had an amazing last two days: our best friends ("witnesses") came over Monday night, we all went out for fantastic meal and quite a few drinks lol :) but it was very nice to catch up with them, cos as they live now about 3hours away we don't get to see them as often as we would like.. Than Tuesday morning (Valentines Day :)) we all woke up, got dressed and began our journey to register office for our legal ceremony :) Before we left our friends decided to give us our wedding present early, got so emotional lol didn't expect that at all from myself, but it all just started to properly sink in i guess :D

So after our ceremony, we took our pictures and went for lunch all together and a glass of champagne to celebrate :) It was perfect and we had an amazing time :)) - the only thing is, now me and my now legally HUSBAND LOL, cant wait to go to DR and have ceremony with all our friends and family!!!

 

Tell me ladies how are you doing with your preparations though? :)

Oh and what did you decide to do about your ceremony programes and menus?

 

I have quite a stressful time about this to be honest, I got in touch with lady that made our invites (which were amazing!) right after New Year, cos that's when we decided on the menu with FI :)...she got back to us and said no problem at all and it will all be sorted, just needed to wait for first drafts.....

so two and a half weeks in I though I will chase her see how progress is doing...heard nothing back, via email, or her website form...than came across her facebook page and though i will have a go contacting her there...She responded and it took a weight off my shoulders, apparently something has been wrong with her email account

Than she told me she is working on first drafts for me and they will be ready soon, - heard nothing back again for two weeks contacted her again she said she is sorry it was very busy and she is def going to send me the drafts....

Well now I am on my 2 weeks before departure to DR, still don't have my first drafts and it is way too late asking someone else to do it...:((( 

 

Is someone planning to make their own programes and menus maybe girls? do you have any templates to share, i would appreciate it soo much!xoxo

As i think the only way for me to have it now is to do it myself...:/

 

xoxo

@Jess819, hon we are getting basic wedding package at Dreams, but DJ is not included with it, therefore we decided to book him in as an extra :)) Hotel DJ costs $250 for 4 hours, hope it helps you hon :)
