Does anyone know if the Bamboo Room has a place for dancing? I'm getting the Divine Package and I asked if a dance floor was included and Ana Maria said its not :( That seems a bit silly to me.

The bamboo room has tons of space for dancing.  Lisa great pic -it really shows how the room looks.  Across from the wall of bamboo are two full walls of windows.  It looks very bright in there during the day.  when I saw it in person, it was a bit smaller than I thought from previous pictures but in reality it would be great for a party up to about 50 guests.

 

I had the Divine menu and for first course my FI chose beef carpacio -I do NOT recommend it.  Only a few people ate it and I know it is raw meat but it looked like some gelatinous red gue. 2nd course was the spinach ravioli -I thought that the spinach would have been in the ravioli but it was a spinach/pesto sauce which was really good.  main course -I gave everyone their own option before we left and gave the options to Pilar once I got there.  dessert -pecan something...I only know of one person who even tried it and said that it was rock hard.  Since you get cake (although it does not taste like US chocolate cake), I would ask the WC if you could substitute the salad that they offer in the Eternity package instead.

 

Just a tip for brides out there:

Everyone wants beautiful pictures so make sure that you time your ceremony and pictures to occur with enough day light.  Remember that days are shorter in our fall/winter season.  I was there at the end of Feb and it was dark by 6pm and even taking pics on the beach during 4-6pm the lack of bright sunlight and beautiful blue waters that you get during brighter hours. 

 

Also, photojournalist pictures are fantastic but only if you yourself are comfortable.  I don't like getting my pics taken much and I thought that it would be easier than it was.  It probably is mostly myself and not feeling comfortable but you could see it in a lot of my pictures.  Why not try having FI or a friend take some pictures of you now so you can begin to get comfortable in front of the camera and learn how your face and expressions translate in pictures.  I wish I had taken that into consideration and "practiced" in front of a camera first.

Tip # 3: If you slouch like I do -remember to stand tall at all times and keep your shoulders back. I don't mean to sound like our mom's but it really makes a person look better and you will notice in your pictures.

    • 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?
