We're getting married there June 15th and after looking at photographers down there (they look amazing) it was actually cheaper for us to fly two friends of ours who are photographers down there to be our photographers so that's the route we're taking! Time is flying by and I really need to start planning more than the photographers! Lolol! How's your planning going?

I think we are leaning the same way for Photographers as it sounds much cheaper to pay there way then to pay for a photographer in Mexico (though I agree, they look amazing and know the best places for a TTD!) and pay a vendor fee when they can just be a wedding guest!!

 

Besides booking the resort, the wedding date/location, most of everything is just ideas in my head at this point in time!  I am looking forward to everything that will come of this next year and all of the projects I have in my mind from reading the posts on the website!  It has given me so much inspiration because when I started knowing I wanted a Destination Wedding, I knew NOTHING.  It's gonna be great though!

Hi ladies! I am also a Gran Porto Real bride. Our wedding is in April 2013. How do you like the communication with the resort so far? Sometimes I am under the impression that the only thing they care is money. They charge you for everything! Even to delivery OTT bags! Anyhow, I have already over 60 confirmed guests attending the wedding from different parts of the globe which is amazing! This forum really helps me a lot. Btw, I am Brazilian, my fiancée is Dutch, we live in Abu Dhabi and we are going to get married in Mexico. I a really excited! :)

Hiya! Just wondering who your Wedding Coordinator is? I keep having loooooong delays in response with mine and was wondering if you're having the same issues? Which beach will you be getting married on? Can't wait to touch base throughout this process and help each other along! Have a great night! ~Stina

Congratulations! :)  We had the light up dance floor and it was awesome.  

We found chair sashes online for cheap and brought them with us... saved us a ton of money, and they were happy to put them on for us. They do have them available at the resort too, if you want to save the hassle and aren't as concerned about budget. Same goes for centrepieces... they have a few options available, but we we able to make our own for much less money.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you order your chair sashes from and how much did you pay for them (per chair).  I have found a few websites so far but am not 100% sure yet and don't want to make the wrong move!  Thanks!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
