They were both amazing to work with! You're in good hands! Good luck with all of your planning cheers.gif

You have some gorgeous pictures! Eva does some gorgeous work. Some of the best Punta Cana photography I've seen to be honest. Thanks for sharing your review. Congratulations!

Hi Mel,

 

Quick question about the weather -- did you find it very windy in the evenings? I'm getting married on February 3, 2011. Thanks again for such a wonderful review!

Yay! That's so fun that you're getting married on the same day next year!

It was never super windy in the evenings. Some nights there was a bit of a breeze but it was always refreshing since it was so hot! The weather was absolutely perfect when we were there with the exception of one windy day the day before the wedding (but it was still hot and sunny) and one night where it rained for about 20min at 9pm.

I'm sending you good vibes so that you have the same weather we did!!!

Thank you so much for your review, it is helping me out so much in the planning stages.

 

I do have a small question for you - How much did your guests pay for their trip per person ? I've contacted a couple airlines and they're quoting me like $1700-1800 pp which I find a bit ridiculous considering I went to this resort back in 2008 and paid no more than $1000. I realize that the prices must have went up since then - but just want to see what I should expect as reasonable from a departure flight from Ottawa.

I'm sooooo sorry that it took me so long to get back to you! I've been travelling a lot and I was in Africa with little access to the internet!

 

I'm sure that you've already figured out your prices but our guests paid $1694 per person (taxes included). Still pretty high but it was peak season when we went. I guess it all depends on what month you're travelling in. We didn't really see a price drop any closer to the wedding either so I guess that the resort is just charging more now.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
