        Hello Ladies,

         

        Just found this forum. We're getting married at Excellence Punta Cana April 25th! Although, now after reading about the Holy Week, I'm concerned the Judge won't be able to sign our papers that day (some places say the Holy Week lasts through Monday) I promptly emailed my WC at the resort (her name is Griselda and she has been really quick with every reply) so hopefully it won't have been an oversight booking us that day.

         

        We set up a wedding website on mywedding.com and sent our STD through there.  We're not expecting a huge crowd, mostly family and a couple friends, so we couldn't justify spending tons on invitations. The whole point of the DW for us was to keep it simple and relaxed.

         

        I bought my dress already! I found one I liked at David's Bridal then searched and found it used online for less than half the price!  I'm waiting to get it altered though...we've still got 8 months!

         

        My fiance and I are booked (flight and hotel) although we're going to switch to another hotel after the wedding, still procrastinating on booking that.  A few family members are booked and a few friends have said they're coming for sure.

         

        So excited! Cannot wait! And glad to be a part of this forum too! If anyone else has any more info on the Holy Week issue, please let me know. As far as I could tell, it just looked like the motorized water sports won't be an option for the first part of our trip.  I emailed the hotel directly as well.  I'll let you know (of course, every resort probably has different rules)

         

        Congrats to everyone! I would post of pic of my dress, but don't want to take the chance of my FI seeing it!

                  We made our RSVP's due by January 20th, because we have to let the resort know the count 45 days prior to the wedding, just make sure your resort doesnt need the information by a certain time.

                    I actually decided to make our RSVP date for March 1st. Our resort doesn't release the rooms until 30 days before the wedding, so I wanted to make sure that everyone has ample time to reserve. Just in case we have some last minute additions. I reallly hope we get a good response. My FMIL doesn't expect anyone from their side to join us, but after talking directly about it with some of the family, they might reconsider. FMIL promotes it as so expensive, we try to point out that it is affordable fabulous vacation!

                      I know exactly what you mean, my FMIL went around telling everyone it was really expensive she told everyone it would be about 2,000 a couple and then her brother went out and changed the story to its 2,000 per person! I tell people call me if you have any questions dont believe everything you hear, I had people calling FI freaking out about the price I then had to get on the phone and re-explain everything, some people just need to keep the comments to theirselves
