We're thinking the D.R. now...

Recommended Posts

I started researching some of the resorts at Punta Cana and the prices are very reasonable. I would like to contact the wedding coordinator at Ocean Blue/Sands and the Iberostar Punta Cana, but I cannot find a direct email. Does anyone have this info? Also, any information on these resorts would be greatly appreciated!

I am getting married at the Ocean Sands/Blue resort in a month, any info just ask, I have ton's. I am happy with my choice, except for the photographer dillemma, they only seem to have resort photogs in the DR.

 

My wedding is for 45 people so I can help with info on the cost of things. What date are you looking at?

You want to direct it to Julisa Fiqueroa, she is the wc at the resort an she is wonderful.

Kelly,

Thanks for the info. A travel agent I contacted yesterday suggested that I stay closer to Texas (ie. Playa or Cancun). She has a point because some of our family will only be joining us for 2 or 3 nights. Ocean sounds like a great resort, I will definitely contact Julisa once I can straighten out where we are going to get married.

Well let me know if you want cost comparitive's for the wedding aspect of it, I can give you the number's. I can tell you that compared to what some of the girls are paying in Mexico, compared to what I am paying are huge differences, the Ocean Blue is extremely reasonable. I do not feel I have had to downgrade anything, except the photographer, but as I said before I can better tell you after my wedding (not long nowcheer2.gif) if the quality is all I hope.

I happen to love Mexico though, I don't believe you can go wrong in that choice, happy deciding!

Hi Kelly,

I saw your post and the dilemma you are having with the photographer. I am in the same boat not sure what to do. I have someone who will shoot for me. He shoots for the CFL, NFL, Maxium Magazine, so he does good work and only wants me to pay for his trip - 1500. However, I am just a bit skeptical as he is going to put everything to disk and we have to print frame and create our own album so that is a lot of work.
I got a qoute from Juan Carlos Tapia photgraphy and for 12 hours in total of shoot he wanted $8000. He does great work but $8000 is soooooooo expensive. So I feel sick on what to do, since I want fabulous pics.
Are you getting the resort to do the video portion of it too??
Do you have direct email to the photographer at all.

I am going to get the resort to video the ceremoy, I am going to have the resort photographer take pics, I am going to bring examples of what I want. My daughter, Kenda, who is a fairly good photographer is going ot also take pictures, I have promised her a really good camera next week, so her quality will be better. Kenda is good, but I need a photographer, I am just crossing my fingers that one of the three they have will be pretty good.

I agree I think $8000.00 is too much money, no matter how good you are, I promise that I will e-mail you my pictures from the photographer, and if you can hold off till the end of August to make decisions, you will be better advised by me.

I think E and I are going to head to Mexico for our honeymoon, next pril/may and I will do a ttd session with one of the wonderful photographers there, but I will decide that after I see how my photographer will be.

I would love to just have all my pictures on a disc. Then you have the freedom to do whatever you want with them. But I really love playing with pictures on the computer.

    • 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
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
