Just wondering where I can find a price list from del Sol? I emailed and got a response with a questionaire, but could not send it.. and still wondering about prices? Could you let me know what I should do?
Thanks!
sorry for finding this so late.... just email our studio manager Melissa at info @ delsolphotography .com and she will give you all the necessary info.

sometimes, computers at work will not enable you to enter forms, etc. We ask these questionnaires to really get an idea of the expectations on the wedding day, etc. hopefully, that helps.

YEAH! We sent out our boarding pass save the dates yesterday and I've already gotten a few calls/texts from guests saying that they are by far the coolest save the dates they have ever received. It feels so good to know that they are finally out.

Just wanted to share in our excitement!!

Your travel/booking set up seems ideal! We have been wondering if it would work to reserve a block through the resort and still use TA Jill.

I'm still a little unsure about guest deposits and cancellation policies b/c what Allibe has been telling us and what the contract says seem a little different.
Do you know when guests have to pay a one night deposit, when they have to cancel by to avoid penalty and when we have to release unused rooms from our block? It would be so helpful to know your take on that info!!!
We're doing a food tasting when we get there!! So excited!!! What time did you do yours? We're getting told to do them earlier in the day but we were hoping to do it like at 4 or 5.

We got quoted a rate from the hotel and our guests can get that if they book through the hotel or our outside wedding coordinator. Otherwise I have had our guests reach out to our Travel Agent Dina also. She's been amazing.
For all of those options I think they just pay a one night deposit and the rest when they check in (hotel booking and our wedding coordinator). W/Travel Agent I think they pay a smaller deposit for the hotel...I have to check my emails but I believe they can make partial payments and make sure they pay in full before they leave for mexico.

I am dying to see your pictures of your site visit! Did you take any of the wedding??

Where are you girls thinking of having your honeymoon?

We did our tasting at noon...it was perfect because we were SO stuffed afterward but were still able to enjoy a late dinner at the Asian restaurant (Kotori). By the time we left, I didn't think that I was ever going to be hungry again. I'm so excited for you...you're going to LOVE it! Your day is getting close too.

 

Thanks for the info on the bookings. I think we are going to do exactly what you are, except we don't have an outside wedding coordinator.

 

My goal for tonight is to get some of my site visit photos posted!!!

Good to know and your timing makes sense so we can try one of the dinner places as well.

 

Can't wait to see your pictures of the visit! do you have any pics of the wedding that went on while you were there?

Unfortunately no pictures of the wedding...it was in the ballroom.

Here are a few pics for now. I have friends coming into town in a few hours so I wanted to put a few up before I get super busy.

We're going to do a welcome party on the beach, ceremony at the point in the picture, cocktail hour at the martini terrace and the reception on the plaza...which is the last pic. Well, at least that's the plan :-)

Next time I'm on, I'll post some pics of the food...and the beach beds :-)

It looks just as awesome as I remember it to be!

 

So what food selections did you ultimately choose?

 

Allibe emailed me the contract the other day. I haven't read through it all yet as we are moving this weekend. But I'm super excited to get it booked!

Hey Becks,

This may be a strange question, I checked out your wedding website.. Is your dog a Weimaraner by chance? If so, that is so funny.. cuz we have one as well :) I have not finished reading your website as the dog threw me off a bit.. It looks good though, from what I read!

YES! That's Burton, our 6yr old Weimaraner. He's such a good dog and is pretty much our kid, so I couldn't help but put him on the website. Everyone who knows us would expect nothing less! For Christmas, I actually had our wedding photographer do a doggie photoshoot and I gave it to FI as a Christmas present...the photo on the website is from that photoshoot. Crazy? Maybe ;-)

    • 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.
