    Maybe it varies, but we had a symbolic ceremony in February 2012, and we did not need a translator. (The minister was a bit tough to understand at times but he did speak English and we didn't need a translator.) Maybe something to confirm with Yinette or Ada?

    I would love to get one of my friends to do it.. but I think they would turn it into a big joke and then lots of laughs hahaha...

    We you married in Feb 2012? If so please let me know the details I would love to know how your day went?

    Thanks

      I have found so many great things on etsy.com! I am probably going to do all my bags through them.  I am including door "do not disturb" signs in them. When we were there in Feb we noticed that there weren't any on the doors and the maid would just let herself right in lol.

          Hi,

          Congrats to all the brides to be.. such an exciting time!!

           

          I am a newbie and looking for some information...

           

          I am trying to decide between Ocean Blue and Now Larimar for our wedding that is hopefully going to be April 2013.

          If anyone can give me some info that would be great... I have 8 month old twins so my time in front of a computer searching is very limited :-)

           

          I am looking for the 2013 prices at Ocean Blue, and wondering if anyone is doing the "free" wedding?

          I am hoping to take advantage of that and then adding on a private meal/dance. I am not too worried about flowers, decorations, getting my hair done or any or those extras.. so the packages listed on their website doesn't appeal to me at all but I can not find any additional services that can be added.

           

          Also, how far in advance did you book your wedding dates? I found my dress last week ( should have it in 5 months) .. got the twins dresses picked out...got hubby's ring ordered... but no wedding date set!! I know this is usually the first thing you do, but I am so backwards in everything I do.

                Our day was great! The few snafus we had were really minor, otherwise it was perfect. I had a bit of a tough time letting go and just trusting that everything would come together but Yinette truly is a professional and knows what she's doing...all the loose ends came together and I couldn't have imagined a better day.

                 

                We have wedding pics at

                Thanks so much again ! I will defintly confirm that.

                Do you have any wedding pics? How did your day end up going?

                  The Ocean Blue offers a complimenrary wedding package.... Did you check out their website?

                  If you want a private meal/dance you will have to prob book the Sand Extr package... It was $2300.00. I have emailed you the additional services. But they are not showing on the website because I think you need to Book it with them first or atleast email the hotel directly and they send you all the options. I booked last week for my wedding on April 15, 2013. But I have been working with my agent ( sister) since March because the hotel and the tour operator didn't have the inventory I need / the price I wanted to pay. I had to get my date switched 3x... but that was my own personal issue as I was being picky with the wedding times and such.

                    Thanks ocean123,

                     

                    Ya I looked on the site.. I don't want to pay 2300+ just to have the private meal when I am not sure how many guests I will have and I also don't want all the other extra the packages offers.

                    I am currently working with a Travel rep to get prices (should have them tomorrow or Monday) for both resorts.

                     

                    I have emailed both resorts asking for info/prices but haven't gotten a reply yet... which I know could take weeks...

                    Just hoping to find out what info I can from other brides to help me make a decision on a resort and get the bookings started! I have my invitations ready to go.. just need to input the info!

                     

                    Thanks!!

                    Susan

                      We have wedding pics at http://akburns.shutterfly.com/ . (The ones titled 'professional pics' are the ones actually from the wedding day; everything else is a mixed bag.)

                       

                      Any other questions, just let me know - I'm happy to help!

                      WOW!! Love it... too funny.. I have the exact same colours as you ! Great taste!! :)  Are those the roses from the resort?   I noticed in your pics you have the light blue bows on the chairs for the reception? Did you have to pay an additional $3.00 for each bow to have them at the reception?... I emailed Yinette about the extra decorations and told her I want the bows for the chairs at the receptions and she told me I had to rent them again, I thought that was weird!!!! I also love your starfish idea for the centrepeices... Did you bring them down with you or just buy them down there?... I assume once I arrive there will be lots more choices, i hope!!! I found the prices the same here to rent :s... One more question - Your reception on the outdoor terrace, what time was that at? Mine starts at 630pm but your looks really light out still which I like.

                      Thanks so much! Your pics are beautiful :)
