Thanks! That's what we are trying to coordinate because we are in TX, but all our family is in IL. Did you go with a travel agent in your town or a big chain like Apple?

I need help! I am getting married at DRC January 25, 2014. 

 

I had a lot of contact with Claudia when I first reserved the date but have not heard from her in two months. I'm getting really worried that I won't get everything done. All the posts are great but I've been unable to find some answers. I'd really appreciate any insight to these questions:

 

- My reception is at Oceana, what decorations do I need to have? I'd like to bring as much as I can but I have no idea what the restaurant looks like with no decorations.

- My cocktail hour is at the Jacuzzi, we have 45 guests and it looks really small, do you think it will be okay?

- My rehearsal Cocktail Hour is on the beach, any idea what decorations I should plan on for that?

- My friend is coming as my photographer so we did not purchase an extra package but we did get the Dreams Ultimate package that comes with photo and video. Did anyone use just the video that comes with the package? How did that turn out? Does anyone have contact for a videographer and how expensive is that?

- I haven't received any planning documents from Claudia except the Budget Planner, is there anyone else you'd suggest to contact? 

 

Any advice would be great! Thank you!

This is the best site I've found for linens as well, but I'm scared of what the duty will be since the order will be coming from the states. Do you remember roughly how much duty you were charged? Thanks!

Hey Ladies, This is probably a dumb question but when the technician was playing your cd or ipod before the ceremony, how did they transition from song to song. The song for my bridesmaid is not going to be close to over by the time I'd be wanting my down the aisle song to start, so do they just do an abrupt stop of the first song and start playing the other, or is there some way to fade between? Just not sure how this works!

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • 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?
