Hi,

 

Has anyone been having problems with guests about the earthquake in haiti? I have been trying to reassure my guests but some ( like parents) dont get it.

 

Has anyone just returned from there? Thanks for anyones help!

My mom called the resort herself and they told her they did not feel the Earthquake there or any of the after shocks. Let people know they are over 300 miles apart and that is a straight shot.

hi kristin,

 

i am a travel agent and have received several press releases from the Dominican stating that they have not been affected at all from the quake. there is no damage, and there have been no problems getting in and out of the country. everything is going on as if it had never happened.

 

i would probably need reassurance too if i was heading there in the next little while - but not to worry!

I'm in Punta Cana. We did not feel anything. Everything seems completely normal here. I don't blame your guests for worrying, but there is no need to. There is a reason why you aren't hearing anything about Punta Cana in the news...because there is nothing to report.

Just keep reassuring them...I think a lot of last years brides can relate because of H1N1 and that whole toboggle...everything will pass in time and beautiful weddings will still be had!

Thanks everyone! Its so frustrating, because I am not concerned, and will know it will pass, but media and opinions left and right without getting facts are super annoying. I just want to get married on a beach and have a relaxing wedding, I could not imagine having a big traditional wedding....is it worse?? haha!!

My husbands family lives in Santo Domingo which is closer to Haiti than Punta Cana (about 150 miles away) and they felt a little shaking but nothing serious at all. His dad was taking a nap and never felt it.

Kristin,
We just got back tonight from Dreams Punta Cana tonight. There were absolutely NO aftershocks. We were there when some of the big aftershocks hit too and felt nothing... it is too far away from Port au Prince.. don't worry.. no tsunami either.. again just too far and totally across land, not water..
HOpe this helps

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
