Recommended Posts

OK..I think I need help!! I thought this was going to be easy. My wedding is at ROR on Novmber 18 at 2pm.

What do I need to plan for. I am reading about receptions at the beach or the pool, chairs and sashes, free package or Royal package, planning a year in advance. I am getting stressed reading all this and now don't know where to start....

Please help!!!!!

I agree with Mrs. B...relax. It's really all up to you what type of DW you want to have. You have the ceremony time set so that's good. Do you know where it will be held? As for the reception, it's not something everyone does. It's really up to you and your FI. Some brides (me) are having a private reception afterward. That's where you get into the packages and other locations, menus, linens, music, and decorations like chair bows. Other brides choose to have a semi-private dinner at one of the restaurants. Some brides choose none of the above. It's all your choice. I'm not familiar with your hotel but I'm sure all of this info is on that thread. Sooo you can relax and figure out what you want. There's info here for all types of weddings. Good luck!!

For most brides finding the right location is usually the hardest part and you have done that already. From here on out it gets easier. As suggested just make a list of what needs to be taken care of in order of priority and work closely with your wedding planner to make sure what need to be taken care of here is done. Make it a goal to tackle just one item a day and you will get it done. If you have a lot to do strive for two items.

 

Also delegate, delegate, delegate, get family members and friends you can count on to help you tackle your list.

 

Take care and all the best

Spanky, congratulations! You've heard it already to relax and breath. From there, you get to have fun. Read what's on here and talk with your FI to determine what you want. Do you want it simple with ceremony & dinner? Do you want additional decorations?

Contact Chandlyn and ask for the price list of options you can choose. She will get back to you (usually within a week) and it will give you an idea of what you can choose from.

There are 2 choices for the ceremony : Beach or garden gazebo. Lots of brides on this site have provided pictures and reviews of both. You can also get a ton of pictures on tripadvisor.

You can also decide, do you want:

Private dinner/private reception - that will cost extra. (approx. $55/person for dinner) (can be held poolside or on the beach)

or

Semi-Private dinner/private reception - Dinner is included in all the wedding packages and then you can have a private reception either poolside or beach (approx. $15/person for set up and bar)

or

Semi-Private dinner no reception - the simpliest and most cost efficient

 

Have a talk with your FI and decide what YOU BOTH want then go from there. You really have the opportunity to customize the overall wedding for what is important you and what is in your budget. Have fun!!

I understand how over whelming this site can be at first. But if it was not for this site, I would have never of thought of all the little added touches that make your wedding "yours". Thanks to all the ladies on here, that answered all my questions. You will get everything figured out. And everyone on here is super friendly.....so just ask away.

Believe it or not, the vast majority of your "planning" will happen with your resort's wedding coordinator starting a month or so before you arrive, and finalizing details when you get there. Unless you are doing a ton of DIY projects, or are planning a really elaborate wedding, take a deep breath, and relax. Everything will come together beautifully!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
