Hey guys! Since you have all been so helpful I figured I'd ask you all another question! I decided I want to hire an outside photographer. Do you all know how this is possible since we are not allowed to bring in outside vendors? How much did you all spend on your own photographer when everything is said and done. I want to stay in budget, and a photographer is very important to me so I'm just trying to get an idea on prices!

Thank you all SO much!!

Lauren

Hi everyone! I was wondering, for those who had a legal ceremony, if they actually kept a copy of the certified birth certificate?  I know they use it to translate to Spanish, but do they give it back when they are finished and just keep the Spanish one?  My FI and I aren't happy with that because of the whole ID theft issue.  With the type of work I do I see ID theft all the time and a US certified birth certificate is in high demand in South America. 

 

Just wondering, we might have to go the symbolic route.

 

Thanks!

If you are hiring an outside photographer you need to book them a nights stay...some people have gotten away with a day pass in the past, however palace resorts have been known to be fussy about this, so to be safe its best to book a nights stay for the wedding night. We hired the amazing Citlalli Rico, we had her and her lovely assistant (and sister) Tammi from 4-10 on our wedding day, then had a 2 hour TTD session, and including the nights stay, I think we came in at just under $3600. A lot of money but OH SO worth it...our pictures are our memories and are crazy amazing! :)

Thanks for responding, I was definitely considering hiring outside vendors, but the $86 guest pass on top of hair and make up would have been a fortune.  After a fair bit of emailing back and worth between the salon coordinator, and my WC, they decided this morning they would make an exception for me and open the salon early!!! 

 

Yahhh! The Power of being a bride smile159.gif

Just a few questions cheesy.gif  Did you have a reception, if so where?  Who was your WC?  Where on the resort did you get married?  And which section did you stay in?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
