@@nkavanaugh yeah I would send lots of emails and then get all my responses a week later but at least they will answer your questions. As for spa appointments. I booked mine ahead of time but I booked my mom and mother in law when I got there and met with the coordinator. Send your coordinator a message with who wants what services and they will book it all ahead of time for you.

 

We were stressed die the first couple of days too making sure all of our guests were happy but after a couple days we just said no, this is our trip too. People generally are happy once they get there because c'mon, you're in paradise. How could you not be happy haha.

 

As for communications after paperwork I don't remember but that probably because I didn't send a lot of my stuff till late. They should be able to answer any of your questions though prior to getting there

I sent in all the paper work 3 months prior so by the time I had my WC she had seen it.

I wouldn't send numerous emails. Save your questions - when she replies send the next batch. Keep them simple in wording / point form

 

I had my appts at the spa booked beforehand but changed the time upon arrival.

@@vivitazy you look stunning! With each new bride it makes me more excited for my wedding next January.

Question for anybody who has booked either the palapa or beach bar for the reception... Do you pay extra for the location plus what ever menu you decide on top of that (bbq or private events menu)? Also is it a different price for the food for kids?

Our deposit deadline is Monday and so far we have 28 adults and 8 kids. Now that I have some more concrete numbers I'm trying to nail our budget down.

The beach bar isn't for the reception per say-- you would eat in the a'la carte and the beach bar would be the party after! It has separate pricing and includes alcohol, no food.

 

For the palapa you would pay the upgrade fee if you don't have a package that includes the palapa.  On top of that fee you would pay for your meal - so either beach BBQ buffet or the plated meals.    The alcohol is included in the 3 hour rental of the palapa, but if you want to extend your reception time you would pay a price per person per hour for the alcohol.

 

At the time I married kids under 12 were free and get a separate kids menu with the typical kids meals you'd see anywhere. You order beforehand (either by email or at your on site meeting) so make sure you ask your friend's what types of meals their kids would want.  I think all of ours got cheeseburgers and fries.

 

Hope that helps.

 

PS - things might have slightly changed since 2015 but I am sure the bones are the same.

hi, thank you so much J

no rehearsals, i was just so anticipating seeing my guys up there, my mind was numb and i cried all the way down the aisle lol, i even messed up taking the (don’t know in English) but the round thing that melts in your mouth and sticks to your pallet, i just took it, didn’t place my hands lol , but you can go to the chapel beforehand and go see and do a practice run!  i would if liked a little more prep for this, but the priest guides you along,

    • 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?
