I neve rained !!! But them beging us to move it the whole time before made me a nervous wreck so until I actually walked down the isle on the beach I was a ball of nerves and very aggravated. Stay calm tho because Lorena is a doll and she really did a great job! My beach ceremony was beautiful and so was my cocktail hour on the terrace. I highly recommend this because my guests are still talking about the terrace and the mariachi band! My reception on the deck and the music was better than I could have imagined honestly (we danced and kept warm lol) I will write a detailed review soon !

 

Congratulations!

 

Ive seen a couple of your photos on Facebook.. You looked beauitful!

 

Look forward to reading your review cheesy.gif

so we just got our album that comes with the ultimate package and I'm not too pleased! The pages are like a cardboard and not glossy, and the pictures are in a weird order. Looks like I'll be ordering myself one from Shutterfly.... :-/

Hello,

 

I was looking back a few pages to find something, and I don't think I saw anyone answer your questions yet...  just in case:  

 

1, 2:  For the wedding cakes and floral centrepieces you will get a list with pictures to choose from.  The cakes are pretty basic, but you can upgrade to fancier versions for an upcharge.  There are lots of options for centerpieces, different styles with different flowers, vases, candles, etc.    

3:  The cost for children is less than for adults - children ages 6 - 12 are charged $24 (+ service and tax) for the dinner.  There is no cost for children under 6.  Children above 12 are the same price as adults.

4, 5:  The sound  system is not included with any of the wedding packages, for the ceremony or reception.  The price I have for the sound system is $180 + tax per hour.

6, 7, 8:  I think chairs with white covers are included in all of the packages, but chair bows are not.  You can either bring your own, or rent them for $5 each.  For beach weddings, I think the bamboo arch and white fabric is included in all packages.  Adding coloured fabric or flowers to the arch costs extra though.

9.  The newlywed package includes a welcome letter, fresh fruit and bottle of sparkling wine in your room when you arrive, special turn down service and breakfast in bed with mimosa.

3. Do we need to pay $60 for every child attending reception dinner (Wedding in Paradise)?

4.  Is the sound system for ceremony included in the Ultimate wedding package?

5. Is the sound system for 3 hour reception included in the Ultimate wedding package?

6. Is bamboo arch on the beach with drapery and flowers included in both packages (Wedding in Paradise and Ultimate Wedding)?

7. Are chair bows and white chair covers included in the Ultimate wedding package?

8. Are white chair covers included in the Wedding in Paradise package?

9.  Apparently 'Newlywed Package' is included in both packages? What the Newlywed Package is including?

 

 

I really hope that someone can help me:)

Hi ladies, I just got my pricing solidified with our TA (thanks again Rachel for the referral!) so I'm moving forward with making decisions on photography and add-ons. We are having a small group with us (abt 20 in total including myself and fiancé) and we are doing the fake cocktail hour, so we may just do the basic (free) wedding package and add what we want. Does anyone who went this route know the cost of the reception dinner per person (adults and children)? Thanks in advance!

If you want to see pics before I get a chance u can request me on Facebook at emilytodaro@yahoo.com... I also want to say that my color scheme was supposed to be pink and purple but looking back nothing really had pink in it and I regret using lavender for my table runners because they basically weren't noticeable at all on the white table cloth.. I should have asked what it would look like first cause it was basically a waste.. I wish Lorena woulda advised me on how light they were. Does anyone know how long the pics take to come? We did package 3 and I'm not sure how long till I get to see some pics

Hello!  The gold and silver menu per person is $48 + tax and service fees, so it comes to $60.48 per adult.  The kids menu (ages 6 - 12) is $24 + tax and service, so $30.24.  There is no charge for kids under 6.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
