Seems like you wonderful time, now i'm even more excited!!!

Also just a tip,The cups are really small they serve there so pack a travel mug or hand them out in your oot bag which I'm sure you've read all about in the other forum topics. They really do come in handy and is a nice souvineer for the guests to take home!

we tipped the steel drum band, the waiters/cooks from dinner, the bartenders, and the DJ.

 

We were planning on tipping the minister as well but the day before our wedding we had our rehersal and we found out that his daughter had broken her leg that day so he was only there for like 10 minutes. He disappered right after the ceremony on our wedding day so we think it's probably because he was going to be with his daughter. Plus we had to pay him the $400 cash from the package so he got paid pretty well if you ask me lol

Thanks! It really was the most amazing week of our lives. everyones already asking if we can do it again next year for our 1st anniversary and we're actually thinking about it! lol. You will have such a great week!

 

lol my ttd is actually from sears. I was going to use my actual wedding dress for our ttd but then with like a month to go changed my mind and needed something quick and ordered that one for only $70 on sale! Up close the beading on the front was a little tacky I will admit  (and freaked out about it when i first saw it lol) but it doesn't show in the pictures so far, so I'm happy!

Yes - you can take your own decorations for tables, etc. I have that info in the package Chandlyn sent me.

 

Resort photographer is Digipix and I think the website is digipixltd.com  Just google Digipix Ltd. and it should come up.  Their website is ok, but I didn't like the look of his photos.

 

We have a photographer in Jamaica booked that I got from this site. He sounds great and his website is terrific. His prices are really reasonable and you have him for the entire day all to yourself.  I think we're also going to have him come early in the day and do some engagement pics as well. Not sure yet.

 

A word of warning for anyone still trying to get their travel group together, i.e. anyone like me with a November wedding. All of the tour companies - Transat, Sunquest, etc are all instituting a fuel surcharge. If could raise your resort package prices by as much as nearly $200 per couple. I know for us, for some people, that's going to be the difference between attending our wedding and not attending our wedding. I've asked that our trip quote include the new surcharge so that people get a real price, not get hit with another $200 bucks after they say yes. If you're still waiting for a group package quote, be sure to ask to have the new surcharge included. You don't want any angry guests that are pissed at you cuz you didn't give them the whole story!!

TMWedding2011, and acw271011, you can also add Merrick  Cousley to facebook, he has some beautiful wedding photos that he took on his facebok page too. I was blown away by them. I am getting married August 18th and we have booked Merrick for our wedding! He was the most affordable, you get more with him than with any of the other photographers that I contacted, he is great at returning emails right away, and you get him for the whole day for much less than other photographers charge for only a few hours.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
