Ceremony location

Recommended Posts

I voted beach. I know you've said you and FI are pretty outdoorsy/active people so I think the beach would be fitting for the two of you!

I personally like the beach. But, if you do choose the gazebo, make sure that if you are using a resort photographer, ask specifically to see photos of the gazebo weddings this person has done recently. The reason is because the majority of the work I've seen in the resort photographers (regardless of country) are basic snapshots---- and even in good lighting situations, I've seen things like the person not cropping people out of the background, etc... and where gazebo's are concerned, I've seen photos where the bottom half of the bride is washed out completely (no detail in her dress, etc...) and the top half is too dark because of the shadow lines from the sun. Make sure you have confidence that if you're using the resort photog, they know enough about photography to read light appropriately...

Heidi I like the gazebo on the beach but I agree about the whole shading thing. However if you have a great photog that probably won't be a problem. But I do also think that DR has such great beaches that you should just do your ceremony on the sunny open beach. After all you will have your whole reception to be in the somewhat shaded area.

I like the beach. I don't like the flower arch thing though, I love simplicity, and all I think that is needed is the beautiful backdrop of the Ocean. How many are coming to your wedding?

I absolutely LOVE the beach.....so that's what I vote! I can't wait to get married barefoot on the beach! Well, I say barefoot, but I found these "thong shoes" that I'm going to wear...here's a pic:

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
