My fiance and I are also getting married here...our date is June 13, 2011 and we are expecting to have between 45-50ish guests! Our colors are pink and orange..we are using the beach for the wedding..blue bar for the cocktail and I am undecided now about the reception..I thought orginally I would want the beach, but now I am leaning more towards the bamboo room! Is anyone doing the civil wedding?

As far as just tourist stuff-everyone takes US dollars or credit cards.  I didn't use any travellers checks-but I'm sure you could use those too.

 

The only downside to using cash is that they will typically give you change in peso's.  And that's all good as long as you intend to use them.  I just tried to carry smaller bills so that I wouldn't get a ton of change in peso's back.  I used all the peso's I had left over to leave tips for the maids, bell boys, etc.

Here are a few questions scattered around that I don't think I answer yet:

 

Shipping Decorations - I didn't ship anything.  I'm just too paranoid to do that-I'd be worrying constantly if everything got there.  My parents, aunt and maid of honror helped with taking on some extra carry on bags.  With that-we were able to get everything there.

 

DJ - The resort DJ is named Alex Martinez and his email is this: alex@avsc.com.mx  I did not meet with him before hand but we corresponded through email a few times and he was very quick with his responses.  You can bring your own music (we brought a cd with the  first dance, father/daughter, mother/groom kinds of things-and then another cd of fun songs I wanted him to play throughout).  I thought he did a really great job with everything.

 

Cake Cutting Knives - I did not bring anything for the cake cutting.  They supplied the typical silver cutting/servings knives.  The cake wasn't that big a deal to me-so I thought what they had was perfectly fine-but if it's important to you-you can definitely bring them.

Hey ladies...not to be a downer, but has anyone heard about the recent explosion in a Playa del Carmen resort?

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/world/stories/DN-mexico_15int.ART.State.Edition1.e26e42.html

 

I know it's not in exactly the same area but I'm traveling down there on Friday and although I would never dream of cancelling plans, it's still a freaky story... :(

It's all over the news. Sooo sad. A groom who got married there days before died and a 9 year old boy among other canadians.

I don't quite get the explanation though. Natural gasses from a swamp??? If that is the case then I am nervous because now jade is surrounded by mangroves and swamps!!

 

I think it is a freak accident and could happen anywhere. I hope it doesn't frighten our guests.

I think you're right too, total freak accident and if anything, I'd think the nearby resorts would now be taking serious measures to make sure it doesn't happen at their properties!

Swamp gas!?!? I need to google that...

Ok, I should be more concerned with the poor people that this affected :( Omigod, a groom...and a child. 7 people. It's extremely tragic, no matter where it took place. Thoughts go out to their families....

Hi everyone, 

I'm visiting NOW Jade (and NOW Sapphire) this weekend so let me know if there's anything you want pictures of or any specific questions I can (try!) to ask. The recent brides haven't left much to be asked though (THANK YOU!!!!) We are staying at Sapphire for one night and Jade for two nights. I'm soooooooo excited!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
