Ana told me it changed but she didn't tell me where.
    Sorry I have been MIA for a bit.. she said it would be moved (if you are looking at ocean) to the left side of the resort where the kayacks are located now.. She didnt say what date it would be changed though.. My suggestion is to call her directly- dont email. I will send a recap of my spreadsheet I made for my wedding so everyone can get an idea of what was told.. I am having my wedding at DRC for sure.. Paradisus is just much older.. SO EXCITED!!!!

      Hi everyone,

      I asked Ana the cost for someone to attend the wedding from a hotel outside the resort and she sent this to me

      The day pass is as follow:


      Half day $ 55 USD per person


      Full day $ 110 USD per person

      I dont want to take more of her time so does anyone know what a half day is? Is this like for example 4 hours only or set times?

      Thanks!!

        Hey ladies - I know we've had some discussions about the golf - I spoke with my TA yesterday and she's speaking to the resort today to get this situation figured out. We're SO ANNOYED about this! I can't ask my guests to pay $195 for golf after we told them it was "free" with a $35 cart rental fee. This is seriously driving me nuts! On top of that, those of my guests who have booked already show "Complimentary golf" on thier confirmation...of course now we have two different courses showing for our guests...what a mess! I'll let you know if my TA is able to get anywhere with them. I'm fuming...thanks for letting me vent

            Thanks girls my TA is doing the same thing. I am annoyed too. If I find out anything sooner I will let you know. You do the same.

                  I would like to have a white boquet and have the bridesmaids carry orange. I'm thinking about having the guys wear khaki suits with a turquoise tie. And I've picked out my bridesmaid dresses (in mermaid): David's Bridal - Short Chiffon and Charmeuse Dress with Flower Applique Detail

                  I'm going to bring artificial flowers for the bridesmaid boquets.

                  As of now, we are planning on having the wedding at the gazebo, and I'd like to have a couple of gazebo corsages, along with a nice alter centerpiece. But I'm at a loss for color/flower ideas for those.

                  What about you?
                  I am not sure yet-- I am going to try to figure it all out this weekend.. But I am looking to do something similar-- bm's carry orange and me white. I really love tulips- so I may go that way- or stick with tropical flowers. I don't know?? :)

                    For those of you who are getting your linens, bows, etc from weddinglinensdirect.... are you getting them shipped there? Or to you and you are taking them there?
