Not sure if you all noticed, but our old thread has dissapeared. I figured now is a better time than any to start a new one!!!
I have booked my wedding at the PPR for April 14th, 2011. I am getting right into the planning stages and am super excited to chat with everyone about our ideas. I went to go book DJ Mania today, and he directed me back to PPR. Apparently he is contracted out by them, so we get priority for our weddings, and we don't have to pay a guest fee. I think it comes to $750 for three hours...which seems alright. I have to ask my friend who booked him privately for her resort what the fee was. I think she said $800 for four hours...but PPR said our reception is only three. I just want to make sure that we get the same prices, and that they are not raised because he is contracted through them.
Also, just looking into photogs...I really like Michael/Phil Steingard...is anyone interested in sharing? I haven't got their pricing yet, but they are based out of Canada, so I don't want to have to pay for their plane if that is the case. I know they do a lot of weddings in DR, so I am interested in seeing what his fees include.
As for invites, I am about to email out a STD...however I still have to create it. I want it to look very pretty and sophisticated, but I am horriable with PowerPoint etc. Any suggestions would be awesome. I am also going to get someone on esty to do my Passport invites, I think her name is Sarah Spourili...sorry about the spelling!!!
And finally, I have to book pastor york...once that is all done, the fun DIY projects begin!!!
Looking forward to starting this new thread and hearing everyones suggestions!!!
