I will definitely post more pictures. Just have to find them since I recently moved wink.gif The wedding was at 5pm and I did use the hotel for my hair. Everyone else did their own. I didn't have any idea what I wanted to do with my hair so I picked something out of one of the books the hotel salon had. I think she did a good job. There were so many bobby pins holding it up!

Hi amy,

 

thanks for your honest review. I am recently engaged and have been to the Riu Las Americas before. We are so lost, Amy. We keep hopping back and forth between mexico, jamaica, punta cana. I'm pretty flexible (i just want to get married somewhere pretty!!!) but my fiance is so worried about everything: will they be able to seat us, will we have a decent wedding reception (we are expecting only about 20 ppl), will we be able to do the daddy daughter dance, first dance, etc.), are we wasting money, will we run in to silly 19 year old spring breakers, etc. we are planning to get married over spring break 2011 (i work in a school :(   )...

 

you gave such a thurough review, i'm not even sure what my question is....i guess...what would you have done differently--at the same resort? had the disco for a bit? i worry because with a party so small, i worry it will feel like a house party, and people don't typically dance at house parties, you know? i worry daddy daughter and first dance will be too small in numbers to not be awkward. it sounds like the major issues you had were surrounding your personal photographer and the Riu wedding coordinator. we would use "their" photog and also we have a friend coming down for the ceremony who just happens to be a professional wedding photographer, shh. so we are hoping that won't be too much of an issue.

 

did you do a civil/religious ceremony or a spiritual one? was it legally binding? did you  guys have to do blood tests? if so, what was that expereince like? my fiance is pretty freaked out about that part. the whole giving blood in a foreign country thing. I'm all for the spiritual wedding. any thoughts?

 

i guess just: any advice would be so helpful.

 

thanks,

sara g

Hi! My name is Stacey and i am getting married on the 17th sep this year at the rui palace las americas! Your posts have been very helpful! You mentioned Cecilia Dumas as your photographer? Did the hotel find the photographer for you or did you find her by yourself? I have been quoted $550 by hotel for 72 photos of wedding. Could you please tell me how to contact your photographer, your photos are gorgeous! We are also looking to have our meal at El Romero, did everything go as planned for you? Starting to get nervous now!! Thanks, Stacey

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
