They also have a thing where they will drop you off on your own private island for a day with a picnic which I think would be awesome. I am so stoked to have a butler!!!

 

Um, FABULOUS!!  Great idea!  Everyone needs a Pool Boy;)  Just take your sunscreen for that private island!  Had a friend who did this with her hubby on their honeymoon, they forgot their sunscreen, and 6 hours later, he had blisters on his shaved head.  Not hot for pics.  Ouch.

Hi!  I'm pretty much an April bride stalker.  I was in your shoes 3 years ago so I always stalk the April brides, and it just so happens that I'm photographing two of you... so that means I'm a super stalker!  Sorry about that... but hi, I'm Trisha!

 

I just wanted to chime in on the Midol thing... yes... it works.  We used it for my sister's wedding.  If you read back way to 2007 when I joined you can probably find posts from me about it actually!  But make sure you only take ONE!  You're not supposed to mix them with alcohol, so take one while you're getting ready and you'll be fine by cocktail hour.

 

As for green flowers, my bouquets has green hydrangea in them and they were beautiful.  The wedding coordinator said the same thing to me... white is hard to come by, green is super cheap and easy to get.  Just remember that hydrangea wilt VERY quickly, so in a bouquet where they don't have a constant source of water that is something to think about.

Oh Meggers!!

 

What a fabulous present from your mom!!  One of my friends just spent her honeymoon there and LOVED it!!  I am partial to St. Lucia since we are getting married there, but we'll be at the Southern part of the island.  So ecstatic for you!!

Welcome Trisha:)  I've seen some of your work and you take great pics!  Great advice about the hydrangea wilting....I hadn't even thought of that.  Your post about not mixing the Midol and alcohol reminded me of that scene from Sixteen Candles when the bride takes a muscle relaxant, stumbles down the aisle, pets a guest's hat, etc.  LOL!!

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
