    Since a lot of the planning is done once you arrive, and you can't really make a schedule of events for your guests beforehand, how did you get information out to your guests? We may have around 50 people coming. Did you just walk room to room or is there a better way?

    I had a very loose schedule, luckily all went according to plan.  We met up for an informal gathering the night we got there and I gave them the OOT bags with the itinerary inside.  A good idea is to get everyone's room numbers out to each other... it helps with communication.

      We had Anel, the gallery manager.  She was so kind and took amazing photos.  I also liked how she touched some up and put together the slideshow and included our song.

        Hello brides! I have never posted on here, but feel a little lost about the whole process.  My wedding is on December 3, 2010 at 4:00. Not sure what I need to be doing at this point in time... Any recommendations? Should I be contacting the wedding coordinator (I gather it's not Ana any more)? What decisions as far as reception location, rehearsal dinner reservations, etc., should I be arranging now?

         

        Any help is appreciated! I'm learning so much from these posts!

         

        Thanks!

          Hey Everyone!

           

          I just wanted to share some good finds I had today for the OOT bags.  Thanks everyone for the prior suggestions!

           

          - Michaels Crafts:  The CUTEST koozies that are beach themed.  They are pink, blue, orange, and green.  They read "toes in the sand", "chillin", "fun in the sun", and the other has a sign with beach, oceanside, etc. wording.  These were $1 each.

           

          - Target:  Fun little throw and catch games for the kids - $1 in the dollar section

           

          - Dollar Tree:  Playing Cards, Colgate Wisps, gum, and crackers/cheese snacks

           

          I have a ways to go, but these were a good start!  Hope this helps!

            When you purchase the ultimate wedding package, how much extra do you plan on spending on top of that??? I've heard you get 50 free pictures but then they expect you to puchase all of them which could come out to over $500 which is fine, but I heard they only accept cash? Anyone else know about this?

              Hi everyone! We are getting married Oct.9 at DRC. Im getting a little worried about the reception. Anyone have any ideas. The ceremony is a 6 pm on beach and then i have the deck reserved. When should we do pics? It seems silly to pay for dinner for people at a all inclusive resort? Should we do pictures while people eat and then just have a desert/cake table on the deck for the reception with cocktails? HELP

                Has anyone used Fernando Fuentes/The Makeup Pros?  Is there an outside vendor fee for having him do your hair/makeup?
