I have a million years to wait--I reserved May 14, 2011 (really early, I know) about an hour and a half before sunset. I wanted to give all our friends and fam a year's notice and also give us time to save up, so it made sense for us.

Now I guess I just sit around and only plan a few little things until like a year from now. That does not sound so bad to me! :)

I am grateful to everyone on this thread for helping me get a sense of this place and the packages and whatnot. If anyone new has any questions about basics I am glad to answer them.

Happy Weddings, all!
As far as the flowers go - I have been told that fake rose petals etc. are just not allowed to be left on the beach - as far as I know you are allowed to have your fake floral bouquets on the beach as long as you take them with you and don't leave them behind as this constitutes littering if you leave them behind!


lcraney - Welcome and congrats on the wedding planning! It will go by soooo fast you don't even know!! My FI and I got engaged in May 2008 almost 2.5 years engaged by the time we get married.. and so far time has flown by so fast.. and I know that the next 8 months are going to go even quicker!

I will for sure post pictures and write a review/give all the brides after me some insight into DRC as well as answer any questions you guys have - even though my wedding is 8 months away.. I just hope others before me will do the same!!!

Does anyone know the resort phone number? I'm getting ready to send out my invitations and I have an information sheet with that info on it. The phone number on the website doesn't seem to work.

Yeh- I am going to have 25 adults and 2 children at my rehearsal dinner. We want a plated, sit down meal. She told me they are working on the menu options but sent me the same thing she sent you. She said that we could have 2 hours (and it will include food and alcohol) and it would be $35 a person- I believe. But that is about as much as I know. I am not sure where my options are, etc. She did mention subbing out food- but it all looks confusing to me ??


Anyone else with anymore feedback?

When I asked Ana about rehearsal dinner options she needed me to give her specifics... number of people, what we wanted, ect. Earlier in the thread there is information about rehearsal dinners. I want to say that you can have it at the buffet if you'd like, and they could reserve a spot but there is an extra charge per person.

We have decided to charter a private catamaran sunset cruise in lieu of a rehearsal dinner. The resort is all inclusive, and again I do not feel it is necessary to pay extra for food! Friday night before the wedding day we are taking a bus to Playa del Carmen and we will go on a two hour sunset cruise. It is about $25 a person with transportation, so we opted to give our guests something different in place of the rehearsal dinner. This is just another option if anyone wanted to do something different!

Do you have any more information on this that you can send me? That sounds great!! Also- do you have an idea where (in this post) I could find the info on the rehearsal dinner? I am finding it more helpful to get answers on here than from Ana. Thanks so much!

    • 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?
