Hi everyone... a few questions I have that maybe someone can answer (I'm sure they have already been answered but there are SOOOO many posts to read through) 1.) Has anybody done a Legal Wedding at DRC..and specifically can tell me the exact pricing for the cost of this. I know they charge for every little thing..bloodwork, translation, etc. I am looking for just the total price this would cost me. 2.) Has anyone opted out of a DJ and just rented the sound system for the whole reception? did it work well for you? Looking at the DJ prices make me cringe :( 3.) Has anybody not paid for extra photographers and just gone with what was included with the packages? I really wanted pics of me getting ready etc. but the prices for having the extra photography also makes me cringe!!! Any thoughts/input would be greatly appreciated! This whole process is starting to overwhelm me and my fiancé is thinking our wedding is basically all "planned & ready to go!" haha little does he know... thanks in advance ladies! xo

Yes, you can change your mind as long as they aren't booked. I believe there were 4 ballrooms. In my personal opinion I think having it outside is wayyyy better than in the ballroom unless it's raining. We had to move ours in half way because of rain. The ballroom was OK, but nothing compares to being outside next to the beach in Mexico! :)

1. We did the symbolic ceremony just because we didn't want to spend the first few days of our vacation worrying about getting all of the extra stuff done. We got married at our church the Saturday before we left and it was fine. But ultimately it's up to you. I know there are a few people who have posted on here that they did the legal ceremony and it worked out for them, but I'm not sure how much it costs. 

 

2. The DJ is worth it. I didn't want to have to have one of our guests (or me or hubby) worrying about MCing or changing music. Even though I wasn't completely pleased with our DJ, it was worth it to have him there. 

 

3. We didn't pay for extra photographers but we paid for an extra package. We got the $1500 package and it was SO worth it. We did that and then paid for an extra hour of coverage so she could get all of us getting ready and stay until the end of the reception. The pictures we got are better than any wedding pictures I've seen here in Texas and it includes the TTD session. Just from my personal experience you can't get that much coverage plus pictures that good with any photographer in Texas. 

 

Don't get overwhelmed. I promise it works out. Having a destination wedding (and having it at Dreams) was the best decision we have ever made.

    • 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?
