I think the resort can do it also (there is a screen and projector in Desires night club that I think you can use). Ana's prices are the same, I believe - but not sure about if she arranges for someone to help play the slideshow. We are going to do this the night before our wedding.
I e-mailed Ana about a slide show for our wedding in October and she told us it was $500 USD and we were only allowed to use their equipment. So we decided not to since it was super overpriced for only 10 minutes of actually using the equipment. Maybe things have changed, I'm not sure but that is what she quoted me. Hopefully it did change :)

Was there someone going to play the slideshow or you had to actually set it up and do it all yourself?

Ladies I am getting worried...my wedding is in 2 weeks from today and Ana has not contacted me at all lately. When does she usually get in touch to find out your final count and all that?

Hi ladies I asked Ana about the projector at Desires and she said it cant be used for just a party because that is an Open area for other guests.. I orginally wanted to use this for our welcome party.. Did anyone CONFIRM with Doremixx that its an additional 200 for the projector? that seems like alot? She told me orginally 600 then it came down to 180.. but that might change..

Our plan was just to bring our laptop from home and hook it up to the projector and speaker system they had there. My wedding planner here said she saw a presentation on the pool deck set up just like that when she went there. But who knows. It seems like Ana just kinda throws out numbers when to comes to pricing sometimes. Since it seems like we all get different answers from her sad.gif I wish there was one concrete answer to all our questions....

I sent Ana a picture of the exact setup I wanted and she said she could do it. I also wanted flowers in the sand on the beach and then a pink and orange decor for the four post thingy they put in on the beach. We are having 39 people coming with us so it isn't too huge but not tiny either. I haven't decided anything for the tables for dinner yet though. I am still thinking of what to do for that. I want something really elegant. I think I will do hurricane vases with flowers and candles in them. Something simple but pretty. The price of our wedding just keeps going up... We are not doing anything once we get home so this will be it for us. What are you doing??
We are doing the white chairs with alternating chair bows. (are u using Ana's or taking ur own?) I've got fans with tears of joy tissue packs attached to them that will be put in the seat. I also want a TON of orange and pink flowers or petals on the beach! I'm hoping I can negotiate the price because $22 a bag...hello! We want the actual beach set up to be draped in orange and pink material instead of the white. And, we're going to have petal cones hanging on the chairs so ppl can throw them after the I do's. And, I've got pink and orange parasols that will somehow be incorporated.
We're doing the free package so just hitting the resturant and bars after the wedding. We have already spent so much money on our AHR that I'm a little overwhlemed. Thank goodness for my daddy! :)

I'm getting married this week and I hit her up a week ago and she got right back to me.

Now, I emailed her last night with my final count and a few other questions:
~how do we pay?
~can I get a new copy of the contract with changes?
~did you make the salon appointment for me?

I would think I'd get an answer tomorrow night at the latest, seeing as how we have a meeting set up for 8pm on Tuesday!

Does anyone know if the dress code is enforced for children? My TA and I can't get a straight answer from anyone about this.

 

Also, does anyone know how you pay Ana for the wedding??

 

p.s.

Some friends of ours got to DRC today and sent us a text. It said word for word: DUDE! THIS PLACE ROCKS! IT'S THE BEST PLACE WE'VE EVER BEEN TO!!

 

I started jumping up and down in the kitchen and got all misty eyed.

From what I have read on the Facebook fan page, the dress code is not enforced for kids.

I know that you pay for the wedding at the resort, after the wedding but before you leave the resort. I assume you would pay by credit card, but hopefully one of our past brides can chime in here on the procedure!

Mmm. For some reason, I thought everything ($$) was due two days before the wedding. But, maybe I'm wrong. Would make more sense to pay after - just to make sure everything goes as planned.

 

I have CONFIRMED with Ivan (from Doremixx) the pricing for the setup for a slideshow. However, I should clarify - we have a large group coming and we wanted to have something organized the night before the wedding. So we are going to do Karaoke for a few hours (which we'll be using Doremixx for) and he'll also bring stuff to set up a slideshow (for the extra fee I quoted earlier). If you wanted to do the slideshow during your reception or something, I'm sure he could work that out and I would imagine at the same price he quoted for us.

    • 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. 
    • 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.
