Glad im not the only one who did that cheesy.gif. I panic when i saw the $6392.80 on the receipt!  I emailed Evangelina straight away, i was relieved when she told me it was in pesos

Silly mistake on my part I guess, but figured I would share to spare someone else from the same misunderstanding.

Thats part of the reason I wanted a destination wedding... If I had a wedding here in NY Id totally do it up, and not blink an eye on spend a grand on my dress (ok, maybe I would) .... But this is the beach, and its tropical... I just cant see spending sooo much money it.

 

Anyone else have any thoughts on this? Has anyone purchased their dress online?

Hello Robyn,

 

Welcome to the forum!!

 

In our personal experience, we would recommend you to have your ceremony start time be 1.5 hours prior to sunset.  This will give you great light for your ceremony, and even better sunset light for your beach portraits!! During this time of the year, our ceremonies typically begin between 5:30 - 6:00 PM. 

 

Here are a few pictures of your location, hope you enjoy them:

Hi Mariah! Amazing photos, loved your colors. Question on the frame for the sand, did you bring that? If so where did you find a frame you were able to pour sand into? I am getting married there in 3 weeks and would love to do this! Congrats again.

    • 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?
