You and your sweetie can sneak out there at night for a comfortable drink and a beautiful sunset.

Hey I guess if you are going to spend 900 why not splurg for the 1300. Oh I don't know I can never make a decision smile105.gif
you just described my exact thought process!!! wink.gif

We are thinking about having our reception dinner on the beach in front of the Seagrape. Has anyone seen the dinner set-up there, or just the beach area itself? I don't want to have people walking by while we are having dinner, we have about 25 or so guests coming so I would like it to be private. I don't know if I should just book the Plantation instead, which according to Chandlyn is still available.

Have you found any details about dinner on the beach in front of Seagrape? (cost, set-up, etc). I would love to be able to have my reception on the beach but hadn't seen any else mention it for ROR! I am just booking by wedding for Jan 2009 so I haven't contacted Chandyln yet. Any info you have would be great!

If you are just wanting a cocktail party, it is $10/person. I believe if you want the dinner on the beach too that it is $50/person. That price includes drinks, dinner, set-up, and staff.

Thanks so much for posting. I am assuming it is the same menu for the reception. It is just a la carte for guests?

The Mammee Bay is buffet for salad, soup and dessert always. Even for your reception. They serve you your main course. And your wedding cake wink.gif. I don't know if you can choose more than one main course...you could always ask?

    • 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?
