Just a question:  Is a song that is 3:25 in length going to be long enough for my MOH and myself to walk down the aisle for the gazebo?  Or should I pick two songs?

And the temperatures here have been so nice!  Today was 13 degrees!!  I guess 30 is still better then 13, but it could be much worse!

I was wondering what you thought of the resort photos? did you pick 5? we found there were barely enough good ones to even try to pick 5 but we did get a couple of good ones. when are you getting your photos?

Hi GBP2012,

 

Did you get any confirmation from Roan and did you put a deposit down? After booking him for our wedding he just gave me details on how to send the money; no contract, no confirmation.

We have just booked Roan as well and he has been fabulous! We are getting married in March and I have procrastinated HUGE! He also has videography packages as well which is nice. You do not have to hire a different photographer and a videographer!

Hi CdnBeatPrincess,

 

I heard back from Donnalee today (I cc her when I emailed Chandlyn, can't believe it took less then 12 hrs for a reply) and her response to my question about a fee for using Rashel for my hair and makeup was....If Rashel will only be doing your hair and make-up and not stay for the ceremony, there will be no additional fee. However, if she will be staying until the ceremony, you will be required to purchase the wedding pass for her.  Now when she says wedding pass I am assuming the $20 for an additional person but I think I will verify that to make sure.

 

I'll let you know if I get anymore info, hope this helps :)

Please post what Chandyln says about vendor fee. I'm interested in using Rashel as well.

 

Thanks :)

Hi Belledame,

 

I was actually going to post a question on here regarding Roan and his emails. I received an email from him that said in order to confirm and hold the date a 25-40% deposit would need to be sent. I was going to send him the very minimal money transfer but it makes me a little nervous. Have you done anything to secure him for your wedding date?

Hi Jodiann,

Did you already send a deposit to Roan?

He has asked for a 25-40% in order to secure our wedding date. It makes me a little nervous sending him money so I just wanted to see if any other brides have yet and if you received any confirmation or paperwork after you gave him a deposit.

If you could let me know that would be wonderful.

Thanks!

He is out of Negril (but does travel throughout Jamaica) and is an "up and coming" photographer so his prices are pretty decent compared to the others. His website is roanphotography.com  So far he has been great through email and when requesting information on prices and everything else. I have high hopes for our day =)

    • 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.
