When I asked Valeria about lighting the lanterns she said to do it if I can "to add illumination to tucanes", she said that tucanes has blue LED lights and modern chandeliers but that additional illumination is recommended. Here is a photo she sent with the actual lights that are already there.

We are using Mike Cantarell (see his videos above in previous posts).

 

It is one of those expenses that you could probably do without, but our thinking was that since many of our friends and family cant make the trip down, we wanted to have a nicely done video to share with them. Even though you could buy a video camera, you would have to have a friend shoot it which would take away from their experience and you would probably feel like you had to direct him throughout the day. You would also need someone that could cut and edit the video.

 

Another reason I really wanted a video was because I wanted to be able to see everything that I wouldnt necessarily be able to see on the day (i.e. groom before I walk down the isle, all the guests enjoying themselves at the cocktail hour, etc).

 

And yet one more reason we decided it was worth the money.... when my fiance proposed, I was in such a state of shock and excitement that I dont remember parts of it! Luckily, he had a friend secretly video it so we have footage of it, but I didnt even remember what my fiance said to me other than "will you marry me?". If it werent for the video of the proposal, I would have no clue what he had said and that was something that I would have been upset about since it was so cute! I suspect that I will have so many emotions on our wedding day that it will be similar.

 

My cousin actually used Mike at EDR in September 2010, and their video is GREAT!

Is anyone using/used the streaming video service that Lomas provides?  My mom can't make the trip, or my grandparents so I was thinking of paying for it. Thoughts?

I dont know that EDR has live streaming capabilities confused.gif

 

I think some of the Azul properties have that option though. Let me know if you find out for sure, since there is a chance that my FFIL wont be able to make it. I would email someone at Lomas to be sure.

Yeah I'd already read the webcast streaming on lomas's site.  Thanks for asking and posting it though.  I was more interested to see if anyone was using the service, or had used it.  I was wondering how good it was going to be?  If people thought it was worth it? Thoughts anyone?

    • 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?
