Oh yeah, that makes me happy to hear. I find it very stressful not knowing what a place is like when you've picked it for your guests. Any other comments about the resort that you wouldn't mind sharing. I can take the good and bad so I am prepared.

My sister is in the very early stages of planning her wedding and has chosen Ocean Blue/Sands. My parents actually own a timeshare at the resort and can't say anything but great things about the place. She said the food is great, beaches are amazing, and just the sheer amount of activity going on makes it a great resort for families. One negative that my parents had was with the Mexican restaurant. They have been to this resort twice now and both time the food at the Mexican restaurant made them sick...and they really have stomach's of steel usually!

 

Ii am the MOH for my sister and my husband and I are actually going to the resort in February on holidays (utilizing a week of the timeshare!) and we are planning on checking out the wedding facilities for my sister while we are there. One thing my sister is worried about is the Ceremony on the beach,....my parents witnessed one during their stay and could not believe how many people got up from their loungers and walked over to the ceremony to watch it...in their banana hammocks too. My dad took a picture of this scene (from his lounger) to show my sister just how awful it was...seriously, a huge crowd around the ceremony action...if I was the bride this would not be the scene I was hoping for walking down the isle. So my sister is contemplating her ceremony in the gazebo..followed by a beach cocktail reception...has anyone seen photos of the ceremony in the gazebo that I can show her? Has anyone experienced this same problem with the ceremony on the beach? Did it bother you? Did you see the crowds of people watching in the background in your photos?

 

Thanks for your advice and I look forward to being the liason for my sister on this forum!

I had my ceremony at the beach and honestly, yes there was people all around, but I did not care a lick. I only had eyes on my DH and I was so 'in the moment' I didn't see or hear anything going on around me LOL. I even remember being pissed afterwards that DH's best man forgot to put the music on and he's like actually it was on the whole time! haha.

FYI- For any 2012 Ocean brides

 

I received an email from Ada (wedding coord at Ocean) letting me know that they are not taking reservations for 2012. For those of you like me who wanted to be ahead of the game, know that they will start accepting 2012 booking in January 2011.

 

Just thought I would share. :)

    • 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?
