If you need to get to town to buy things, there is a big commercial center/supermarket (I would say a Dominican version of Target maybe) called Jumbo - this place is at La Romana (website for address and hours: http://www.jumbo.com...mbo_romana.aspx ) might be easier to just go there and see what they have, instead of going to smaller shops that could take more time and maybe have less quantities. I think I might rent a car and pay a visit to Jumbo (might be 30 min drive from the hotel) to find small things for my survival kit and welcome bags.
You'll see that everything will turn out just great for you, with all the unforgettable happy memories that we all wish
Thanks for the tips! These things definitely put a whole new perspective on the wedding. We are more focused on the attendees and the experience itself, than on the decorations and such. Starting to get really excited about actually being on the beach. It is going to be fantastic and just what everyone needs!
Vancouverbride: double charge for the stereo?! Insane! Definitely bringing our ipod and mini speakers. Going to test them against the traffic to mimic the waves and see how much can be heard. I was under the impression that the microphone the bride, groom, and officient use is included. If we have to pay to rent the speakers for the reception anyway, I think we are going to get the DJ, because he comes with speakers and can handle an ipod. =p Have our speakers play through supper maybe. Awesome that your travel agent is also a planner. Ours is just the TA, so we have been doing all of the arrangements ourselves.
