We opted for the free package as all we really needed was the ceremony. So I am guessing we will be on the public beach. I'm not too worried about it tho...it still looks beautiful, plus we are not doing te reception at the hotel. So we didnt want to pay money for stuff we wouldn't be using.

Totally agree!   So where are you doing your reception?  I thought about doing it on a catamaran at one point but fiance's family (mom and aunts) are terrified of boats so that was out.

 

I also did the free package but upgraded to the palapa/private beach as I didn't want to use an ala carte!

Cool! We are doing a sunset catamaran cruise as a thank you to everyone...we have heard raving reviews about it so we had decided on that even before picking out a hotel!

Awesome, super jealous!   We did a Catamaran trip in Cuba and it was a highlight!!

We are considering doing a bachelorette on one in Mexico for those who want to come..... booze cruise!!

Yup, Kenya took over for me too. She has been really on top of emailing me back though so I am not complaining! Do you know how we prove that we have guests coming for 40 nights?

Kenya is super quick!  I inquired about the cost to bring a makeup/hair team on site and got a response in under 5 minutes. It's too expensive so spa it is!  Which is ok, was just not wanting to bombard them as I need 5 hair done, and not sure who else is marrying that day!  

 

She told me the coordinator would be assigned 1 month before (I thought it was 3) but gave me a list of things they could coordinate for me, so more to think about!!!

 

You have guests for 40 nights? I must have read that wrong.

This is my assumption - with my booking package I got a spreadsheet I had to fill out with all my guests, who is in what room, their bed preference, and what table number they would be at.  I assume they use this to check their system to ensure these guests are all truly in the hotel.

Ahhh I see. I have heard mixed reviews about the salon...one of the guests at my wedding is a hair stylist so I got lucky. I think te spa would be good tho...plus a nice experience!

    • 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?
