Newfie wedding at the Riu Bachata

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm Darryl and am getting married at the Riu Bachata in Puerto Plata, DR on March 16th/10.


I'm hoping some can answer some questions and provide some help.


Everything is booked and what not. We have approx 45 people going and I have some questions regarding supper and after supper.


First of all, I think I was told that with this large of a group, we'd have a private dinner. I guess my question is what about after supper? Is there anywhere that you can book for a reception/dance? I guess I'd rather not have my wedding guests leave after supper and disappear to another location because we have nowhere to go.


What have people done in the past? Suggestions?


We are also having a lot of trouble trying to reach someone at the resort. We've tried each and every email address available for wedding coordinators without any luck. We haven't been able to get a response at all.


Another question is in regards to our documents that we have had translated. One site suggests that we must mail this before we arrive, and another states it has to be brought with us? Can anyone verify this info for us? I find it hard to believe that we'd have to email them?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • 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?
