$5 per chair sash seems outrageous to me.
I bought chair sashes on ebay for less than $1 per sash. My wedding was Feb 26th and Ana put the sashes on for me for the ceremony and the reception for me at no charge. It seems ridiculous to have to pay for them to do that!

brides, please be patient with ana, you have no idea how many emails she gets daily.

my wedding is in 2 weeks at dreams, she has been nothing but good to me, answered all my questions, done everything to acommodate me, and the closer you get to your date, the sooner she gives answers, as she is dealing with the weddings that are next.

i understand being frustrated & scared at not getting responses, but she will take care of everything in time, dont stress.

this resort sounds amazing, i am getting everything i wanted & asked for & my total bill for the wedding is under what i had anticipated.

if you have questions, feel free to ask me, i would love to help, as i am further along the path then lots of you.

also, if you want to email me, i can take a list of questions with me & get answers from ana when i am there in 2 weeks & i will gladly email you when i return.

i will also post details of my wedding, so any questions, send my way. or if you have anything you would like me to take pictures of, i will gladly do so.

dont stress, everything will be perfect & will be taken care of:)

wedding april 28, 2010 SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really want to have the cruise, but just wanted to see if you negotiated your price. What boat are you renting?
I didn't negotiate the price. I did ask about the 3 hours. Originally he told me that 4 hours was the minimum. Our transpo is $300. How many people are you transporting? We were originally going to rent the anteres that holds 40 people. But we decided to upgrade to the Velvet Tiger that holds 50 people. We only have 35 people but figured there would be more space on this one

Hi Ladies!

Has anyone seen the lights that can go under the tables at the reception. I really want to get them because they seem awesome! Also, did anyone purchase table overlays? I am not sure what size I need?

Also one of the ladies asked about a long table option versus the round reception dinner table option, there is a picture attached there.

Note, that the first two pictures that show the banquet chairs is also the rain back up at DRC. let me know if there are other pictures that you ladies would like to see.

I had to break up the attachment into three as otherwise they are too big

Happy planning!
Do you mind emailing these attachments to me at dee414@gmail.com. I am not able to open them, it says that I do not have enough member points =(.

i bought my chair sashes from wedding linens direct- i think 30 of them for less than $30 (fuschia sheer ones)... ana said she would put them on the chairs for $1 each. If i wasnt such a control freak, i would have my family or friends do it haha.

Dee, please be careful asking people to email you things - this is against forum rules and could get you banned!

Here's a link to the rules, and will also give you info about points opening attachments: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...k-forum-32313/

I know there are other threads that cover this... but I was just wondering out of the brides at DRC that have had their weddings already or are about to, can you post your welcome brochures or templates ? I'd just like to see what events or activities other people are including that is DRC specific.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
