I forgot to ask...what flavor was the cake? I also wanted to know, how far were the clubs? My friends will want to go out after 1am. Thanks!

Because we didn't change/upgrade the cake, we asked how much it would be to upgrade the flavor to vanilla and strawberry. She said the change is minor they wouldn't charge us for it. It was delicious!!!!!

The clubs are approx 3 blocks away. 5-7 minute walk. We went out every night!

The entertainment staff organizes club nights too--no wait in line, all you can drink for approx $50 p/person. However, if you go onto the club strip you can find a promoter who you will need to bargain with and you can get $30-$35 for no open bar.

don't worry AT ALL. even if you do the bare minimum from home, everything will be taken care of when you get there. you can make this as stress free as you want! I did all big planning approx 6 months in advance and then finished the details approx 1-2 months in advance. and then got there and selected flowers, napkins, chair bows, etc.

I stressed about decor a lot. I didn't want it looking "cheap". And I was THRILLED with what they put together. Everything was elegant and classy.

the ceremony was elegantly decorated.

starfish and candle holders were from home. (regular candle will not stay lit). i got these on line for $2 a pop (google mini candle lanterns). you can also find in Michaels.

Congratulations everything looked so beautiful!! I just have a few questions is Juan Navarro the resort photographer for weddings or did you hire him yourself? I was just wondering if he comes with our package or not and when I asked Claudia for the DJ does that mean I am going to get Mannia or is that someone who people book outside of the resort as an extra as well?

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
