I was just wondering if you thought it was difficult to dance in heels on the wooden dance floor?  I don't think I want the dance floor but I don't want to be tripping in the cracks on the deck.

I had three camera men.  I think he used the same style camera but it is the editing quality.  The "shaking" in the beginning of the video is an editing technique called a time lapse where they shoot an area for hours to see how the weather changes and then speed it up.  I would just make sure you are very specific about what you want with them.  I think I was sort of annoying with them but I got exactly what I wanted.  :)

Hey! My ceremony started at 4:30 and I had my hair appointment at 12:30 ;) Also I paid $30 for the lights under the table so tell them that you know thats what a lot of other brides paid ! Only lighting I had was the lanterns going across the front of the deck and the lights under the tables and it was perfectly lit. ( also had the light up dance floor ) & i think it was perfect...

 

I also highly recommend the white flags. I had 3 i think or four going acorss the deck along the poolside behind where the head table was and they really looked beautiful blowing in the wing... added a really nice element! I cant remember the price but they werent too much & def. worth it for the backdrop.

me and my fiance are traveling to cancun this may to and i would love to see the resort before the wedding and get a tour.  i have been trying to contact the wedding coordinators for weeks! how did you go about scheduling your visit?!

I get the impression that if you walk into the wedding department and say you are interested and ask for a tour someone will glady take you around whether you planned it or not. I seen Jorge taking people around showing them everything. So I wouldnt even worry!

For the footage of us doing pictures at the end on the beach, we were closing our eyes for a few seconds and then opening them in hopes of getting less pictures with eyes squinting at the sun.  Photographer was Santiago, who was FANTASTIC.    

 

Lori your video shows that the quality has REALLY improved. I was too scared to use them because of some I seen so I went with Mike Cantarell but my video is not THAT much better than yours. I had one video man from Mike Cantarell and my video is slighly shaky. If I have one regret its that I didnt do the 8hr video because otherwise it wasnt so much different than what yours looks like.

 

Also for other brides just an idea... since you cant get a refund for the video included in the ultimate package if u decide not to use it on ur wedding day...  I had them come and film the day before the wedding my "welcome cocktails" in the lobby bar and they went around and had my guests say things. I was not overly impressed with this either because sometimes my guests are speaking and they are playing music over it which totally defeats the purpose!! LOL can you imagine? But had I of been more verbal from the start and state exactly what i wanted it may have been better. It is still a cute thing to have. I have my guests just drinking and mingling & its a cute memory & better than just not using the video that you are given with your package.

Has anyone that has Lorena as their wedding coordinator heard from her lately?  I have not heard from her since the beginning of April.  I have followed up many times and never get a response.  I leave in two weeks and I need to finalize some details before I leave so her lack of responding is making me nervous.  Is this normal?  I thought the coordinators responded more often once it got close.

I had Lorena for my wedding on the 18th, and had the same problem with not getting responses as we were approaching our departure date.  I ended up sending an email that I marked as high priority, and made it into an itemized list that was summarized all of the questions I still needed an answer to (because they were spread across a few emails at that point), and just said I needed the answer to these ASAP because we were leaving soon.  Then Question 1, 2, 3, etc.  That email finally got a response, so you could try that.  I also made a summary document with all of the important details I wanted included in our wedding and emailed that to her, and she had it at our first meeting and said it really helped a lot, so that might be something you could do to make sure everything you want is covered and listed in one place.  Honestly though, you will get so much done and answered when you first sit down with her when you arrive - you can add or change pretty much anything at that point, so don't stress too much!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
