I do have another question for you though:

Did you get your wedding coordinator a gift or anything?

Hey...no problem.  I agree....with a group of that many...it becomes frustrating waiting.  As the "host" you feel obligated to keep everyone entertained and happy. 

I did not get anything for the coordinator.  We wanted to tip her but could not catch up to her after the wedding.  I saw her a few times but she was always in the midst of another wedding.  I am going to contact her by email and ask for her direct address so that we can send her a tip & thank you. She did a great job, but honestly....you only see the coordinator for a short amount of time.  I had my MOH's mom hold the envelope with the tip money it but she could not find her either.  I was against leaving it with anyone else because I wanted to be sure Gina got it.

We Have Gina and to be honest I am getting very frustrated.  Has anyone contacted their planner directly on the phone without complications?  I haven't tried yet, but waiting forever for email replies is exhausting!  Thanks!!!

You're wedding was beautiful! I have a question for you...The paper lanterns that are hanging, did you bring them yourself or did the hotel provide them? If you brought them yourself how did you get the lights in them?

Thanks JulieJ84!!

The weather was awesome.  It even rained on our wedding day for 30 minutes and then the sun came out.

It was 85 degrees the entire week....at home 100+.

 

We may try to go back next year...or try Dreams Punta Cana....

Please do not worry brides--everything gets straightened out when you arrive at the resort and meet with your coordinator. My coordinator was Gina, she was awesome and did everything the way we wanted. I will be back to put more of a step-by-step review, but for now--enjoy wedding planning!! Here is the link to our slideshow--we also had Anel, she did a great job! She was from adventurephotos from the resort.

Thank you for sharing your slideshow too. Your wedding was beautiful. I loved your dress. The little boy was so cute. Your bouquet was like mine. I loved it so much wish I could of taken it home. But did you find it alittle heavy.

    • 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?
