Is something missing?

Recommended Posts

Soooo...I'm less than a month away from departure day! Yay! (and, holy crap!) I'm incredibly excited but I feel like I should be doing more to prepare. My wedding coordinator at the resort (Iberostar Dominicana) isn't doing much to help me plan anything. I expressed my concern to my TA, she talked to the wedding coordinator and the WC told her that we would plan everything when I got there. I HATE not knowing what to expect and having NOTHING planned.

 

When I first decided that's where I wanted my wedding, she sent me a form to fill out my preferences but nothing has happened since then. I even asked if I needed to put down a deposit to hold the date and she said no.

 

Is this normal? Is there something I need to be doing? Kind of freaking out!

From what I've read from the other posts, it does sound pretty normal. In many reviews, girls have mentioned picking everything out when they arrive with the WC, guess that's when they order everything anyway. Good luck

I just had my wedding 3 weeks ago and did everything once we got down there. It was perfect. I didn't stress about it "turning out exactly" how I wanted, bringing bags of stuff down, deciding on something then changing my mind, etc.

It was seriously perfect...and planning was so stress free! Sit back and get excited-that's my advice!

It's completely normal. They have everything planned. They even have music for you. Some of us brides just want to specialize it for our special day. Other brides could care less. To be honest, I wish I would have cared less because I ended up getting sick at 6:00 and missed the entire dinner and dancing. The day flies by so fast so just go, relax, and don't have any expectations. Just "Fly by the seat of your pants" (or dress?)

 

Find out what is necessary/important to YOU. You might value music more than the photos/cake/flowers etc. Every bride is different.

 

Enjoy your day and trust me! It will be fantastic!

Hollym,

I am getting married at the Iberostar Dominicana next August. I assume that Yoselina is your WC. I actually met with her in October to see the different locations for the ceremony and a reception and she was great. She is very efficient and organized. As long as you come with a list of everything you to see happen, she will figure out a way to do it. We have a lot of complicated circumstances and she came up with a solution for everything. Also, you don't need a deposit at the Iberostars. I was worried about that as well, but then she showed me the master calendar with all of the reserved dates. I hope this helps!

That is reassuring! I am finding it frustrating also - I have contacted both of our top two resorts to find out information and have not heard back from either.

 

Just try not to worry -- everything WILL work out, because it's your big day and that's all that matters! :) You could try having your TA call the resort and let them know you are a little concerned and want to finalize a few things before coming.

Holly - you are not alone...funny we all stress out at different points. It will go well....you, your huney and the family and friends coming with you....they will all help to make sure it goes off without a hitch! It sounds like your WC may not be the best at communicating before hand, but rocks when you get there! Good luck!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
