      Wow. Thank you for the pictures! I wonder if they will give us the flowers for the hair too :) -although I doubt since it seems like they charge for everything.

      Amy, that's great about the colors. I actually decided to switch to orange/aqua color theme yesterday, but not 100% sure- I know it's a little daring and may be a disaster but I really loved the combination on theknot.com

      Good site for decorations: Save on Crafts, Wedding Supplies, Flowers, Tulle, Lights, Decorations & Discount Craft Supplies Save-on-crafts

      I called Tiara yesterday and she said she has orange table cloth and orange sashes for the chairs-hope that's helpful.

      If you girls are having hard time asking her by e-mail, just call her. She is as unclear on the phone as she is in the e-mails but at least I could ask her the same question more than once to clarify.

      Also, last year I did not get sick from food in Dreams, eventhough it is prevailant at other DR hotels. I think they have better quality food and are more safe. However, I did get some kind of allergy on my body. The hotel doctor gave me pills and charged 120$ for visit and the allergy did not go away (I never had any allergies in my life!). I later discovered that it was probably sun poisoning since the sun rays are more stonger there and I am not a fan of sunblock - so lesson learned, I will be all lotioned up this time. :)

      The spa is amazing and you should also get a massage if you get a chance while you are there. They also have many restaurants, all are unbelievable and very tasty!

      I hope to see some of you there even if momentarily :)

              As a newbie I want to thank all of you for the great information that you've collected on here. Since I've got a WHOLE lot of time before our wedding I'm looking forward to reading all of your details. For those of you who haven't been to this area it really is beautiful. In 2008 I stayed a week in PC and took an excursion to Sonona Island which left from La Romona. While there I decided that when I finally got married this would be the place.

                Is anyone doing a trash the dress shoot at DLR with the resort photographer?

                  I was going to use the resort photographer but decided against it once I saw how much they charge. I wanted a photographer to take pictures of us for the whole day (e.g. getting ready, ceremony, creative shots, dinner and dancing). Plus I wanted a trash the dress session the next day for few hours. The company that works with the resort charges $2000 just for the full wedding day and more for the trash the dress session. I decided that if I could find a photographer up here that would cost less than $2000 including the trip I was going to do that instead. This way I can pick who the photographer is and save money. I was worried about who I would get at the resort. For $2000 I wanted to know he/she is going to be good.

                  I actually managed to find a photographer who is charging us $800 for the full wedding day and the trash the dress session. His trip cost us $1200 so we got everything we wanted for $2000! I just booked it today.

                  Does anyone else have experience with the resort photographer or bringing his or her own?

                    $2000 for a TTD session and wedding day?? That's crazy. I wonder what we're getting as part of the Ultimate package then. I was also thinking of a TTD session the day after but it's not sounding too affordable for us. I wonder how long the resort photographer is going to be around for what's included in our package then.

                      We are getting the Ultimate Package as well which comes with the photographer. Tiara said that this would include the ceremony and about an hour afterwards. I emailed the photographer to ask if they do trash the dress shoots and they emailed me back yesterday saying yes, and they start at $200.00. It's only $2000 if you book them for the whole day of the wedding. I'm waiting to hear back on what the $200 includes. I know for the wedding day it includes 50 Full color photos and wedding with album. I guess I should find out how much more it might be to get the pictures on cd as well.
