    Can someone help me decipher what she's trying to tell me?? I'm confused.

    Hola Tiara,

    I hope you are well. I just have a few questions that I hope you can answer for me.

    Is there anything that I need to do prior to arrival at the resort? Or is everything decided upon arrival next year? I am referring to flowers, appointments, dinner selection, hors d'oeuvres, cake, decor, etc.

    Also, when do you need to know the final number of guests for the ceremony and dinner?

    Please let me know as soon as you can.

    Thank you for your time Tiara.

    xxxx

    Hi Tiara,

    We have our flights booked already. As for wedding details, this is what I am referring to. When can we start working on the details? When do you need final head counts?

    Thanks,
    xxxx

      They had originally booked in May but the trip was cancelled in August. Their trip was from April 15, 2010 to April 22, 2010. They are now on their own to find another airline to book the trip through. Luckily it wasn't the group trip that got cancelled - they had booked on their own.

      KPEG - I have found with emailing the wedding coordinator, it works best if you ask one specific question per email, wait for a response, and then ask your next question. I have sent a few emails asking more than one question and she only ever seems to answer one and doesn't always make sense. Perhaps a bit of a language barrier? Good luck!

        The way that I interpret this, is that she said that you can start working out the wedding details with her once you have a final count on the number of guests and once you know what your colours are going to be. I could be wrong, but that is how I understood it.
        Hope this helps.

          I guess what I was asking her was when she needed the final head count by. I wanted to give my guests a deadline to RSVP. She didn't respond in time for my invitations, but if I knew then I could at least put it on my website.

          So confusing! Or maybe I'm just making it out to be that way! lol.

            Thanks Jenne. I'm finding that too. I try to ask only 2 or 3 questions but maybe that's too many! I just needed to know the basics. :S I've chosen my colours, I just wanted to know when she needed final counts by. I'm trying really hard to be just as laid back as they are in the DR! lol

              Has anyone seens pictures or if it is even an option to have the wedding on the beach? Also we tried asking Tiara about a beach dinner/reception but like KPEG she just dodged some of our questions and that was one of them. Any pics?

                I could be wrong but really dont think they need a final head count set in stone like places at home would need. I think an approximate number a month or two ahead of time (or even a week or two) would be fine.

                  Earlier in this thread i posted some pics of a ceremony on the beach. Here is a pic of a reception on the beach and also by the infinity pool.

                    thanks dolfin... Any idea of the cost I am assuming it is more?

I guess they cancelled certain flights and then whoever was on them got their trip cancelled.

                      Ahhh, ok. This is the same thing I posted about a little while back, where Sunwing contacted us and said that as of the end of March 2010, they will not be flying directly to La Romana, but instead, our same trip would land in Punta Cana and then take a transfer (bus) to La Romana (1.5hrs).

                      No biggie, but they gave us the option to cancel our entire trip if we wished. All of our guests were fine with it, so we just kept our booking as is. They also agreed to upgrade us on the flight and at the resort to keep us from cancelling, so it worked out in our favour!

                      I don't think it's a big deal.. and I didn't see any other airlines that flew direct to La Romana (within price range) since it's off season.
