Mimi,

 

I'm sure it will be FAR from boring! I salivate over every tiny detail I can get about the Jellyfish. :) 

Ha!  Well get ready - I'm at 2.5 pages already and haven't really gotten to the wedding details yet!  (photographer, videographer, etc, etc) :)  I know that I craved all the small details too :)

Smith, re: the DJ - are you giving him an idea of a playlist for the evening (or bringing your ipod) or letting him play whatever?  Really curious what he has....

I agree, I 'm also nervous about traveling with a ton of cash too.  The invoice said cash, CC or wire.  Maybe I can pay the balance as a wire and then since I'm doing the menu ala carte and tab bar, pay that in cash that night.  Otherwise im going to divy it up and give my parents and another person a chunk to carry so its not all in one spot

Just thought I'd comment on the payment part :)  I was hesitant to travel with that much cash as well, but it wasn't actually that bad.  DH and I just split it up between us and each carried a money belt on the plane, then put it in the safe as soon as we arrived.  The biggest part of our bill was for the food and booze and we paid that by an american express because you can't charge more than $1000 to visa or mastercard at the JF (we were in the ballpark of $10 000 on AMEX and it was fine!).  You should also be aware that if you travel with more than $10 000 in cash, you'll have to declare that when you enter the country.  We were under that so it was okay, but I'd have hated to have to declare - I can imagine it would be a hassle!

Congrats Mimi and thanks for all the information so far!! Don't know what I'd do without you! It's good to know that we can charge as much as we need to on our AmEx. Did you feel comfortable leaving all of your cash in the safe? We are staying at the ME also and have heard mixed reviews about the resort in general. I'm 100% confident with Jellyfish and Mayte, but am getting worried about some of the recent trip advisor reviews of the Majestic. I'm looking forward to reading your review!

Thanks!  And I'm glad I've been helpful!  I felt totally comfortable leaving the cash in the safe.  I found out near the end of our week that one of our guests' room was broken into.  A few items were stolen, but they weren't locked away in the safe when they probably should have been.  I think everyone kept it from me so i wouldn't feel badly/stress.  Even with that though, I still felt comfortable with the safe.  Just be sure to use it!

 

As for trip advisor reviews, I had a strict policy to not look at it after we made our resort choice.  We had already made the decision and paid the money and there was no going back and only stress to be had so I avoided it entirely (which was difficult because I'm such a researcher!).  I suggest banning yourself from it right now! :)  You can never please everyone and it's a large resort with lots of guests so some people will surely encounter issues.  And those with negative experiences are more likely to complain!

I agree about reviews on resorts. I stressed about this the most, there are so many reviews on all the resorts, good and bad but after we decided on Majestic Elegance i have not looked again :-) You can't please everyone, people have such different expectations &ideas of what is good/bad, etc. and there will always be negative reviews for any place so try to not stress over it. I could not be happier with ME so far!

Oppps...as far as the DJ play list, I have a list of song & artist for ceremony, first dances etc. I also have a list of must play songs for cocktail hour and the dancing part, otherwise am leaving it up to the dj and guest requests. Mayte said the dj had everything on my list and i have heard good things about the music and dj will accommodate ur style of music etc.

Hi Mimi/ladies - were any of you concerned (or are concerned) about carrying your rings with you? A family member brought up a good point that I probably shouldn't wear it around too often but it also makes me a little nervous to leave it in the safe. It's insured but wasn't sure you all had similar feelings and what you ended up doing or were planning on doing? Did you at any time feel unsafe with them? Staying at the ME as well! 


Thanks!

Kaylin

Hi! I haven't really thought about this being an issue and plan to wear my rings every day like i do at home. But if you want to leave it in the safe previous comments suggest this is perfectly safe as well. I will find out more this week!

I never gave it a moments thought!  I wear mine all the time (except when applying sunscreen, but i just put them in the lid of the sunscreen so i would be sure to remember to put them back on).  I never felt even a moments hesitation to wear them at the resort and felt perfectly safe!  Do what makes you feel best though!!

    • 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?
