i am originally from the Dominican Republic and  what im opting for is flying to either the Santo Domingo (SDQ) or La Romana (LRM) and getting shuttle service for my guests to Samana  its about 1hr and 20 min drive,you can talk to the resort or your travel agent and see what they might have to offer i know hotels usually offer shuttles to and from the airport for about $25 per passenger RT.

 im going to look in to private buses since my party is of 30 or so guest it might be cheaper will keep you posted if you'd like.

 

Another good idea!

Please keep me posted!  I love this resort but right now it seems too impractical for my wedding guests.  May be a great spot for a honeymoon though woot.gif

I am starting to get a little frustrated.

We were able to put deposits on booking for the week we want with Air Canada, but now I am trying to secure the DATE I want with the resort. And, of course, I am not hearing anything back.

 

I know they get busy, and I know I shouldn't be impatient. I just really want to get the exact date figured out so I can book the photographer. After that, I am okay.

 

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Hello brides :)

 

I see a few of you are looking to get married in 2013. I am looking at picking a date between January and March 2013 sometime. I am still narrowing down resorts, but this is a top pick. Being from British Columbia I am also concerned about the lay over in Toronto. I am also concerned about the cost...but the wedding package seems reasonable compared to other resorts I have looked into. I love hearing everyone's discussion. Keep it coming.

Hi Peach,

 

Yes it takes her a while to respond back! In every review i've read everyone has had the same experience so i didn't worry about it. What i did was wait for her to confirm the date before i booked anything with Air Canada. I've heard some people who were in a rush actually called the hotel and asked for the wedding coordinator and that seemed to work.

Does anyone have any information packages provide by the resort that they would be willing to pass on? They do not appear to be as transparent regarding added costs as some other resorts. I would like to get an idea of what some of the extra's cost :)

 

THANKS :)

I might. I actually heard back last week, a very nice email, saying the resort was available that day! Yay! And then information about the cost of a minister for a symbolic ceremony, a catholic priest, or a legal ceremony. Nothing about the packages, though I have the old ones from before if you want them, MaisieGirl.

I emailed back to say we want a symbolic ceremony, on that date... now I guess I just wait again to hear if it is confirmed? I am not really sure of the process here...

I have my confirmation date, however I have e-mailed them twice in the last 3 weeks and so did my TA with no answer back to any of our questions. We too want to know extra cost of certain things!

I hear this all the time, and have seen lots of brides comment on it. It is just a different place and culture, and they are busy.... it can be very frustrating though. You will probably hear back soon. Responses to me are averaging 2-4 weeks I think.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
