Also, I was thinking of just using an ipod dock or an ihome for the music for the wedding... Has anyone done that? Was it ok or would it be worth it to have the DJ? And can you bring your own ihome??

 

I looked over what the package includes, which now I feel like isn't as much as I thought. We are doing the Tangerine Package, and the thing that gets me is that it says like open bar for 3 hours... Ummmmm, isn't the whole resort all inclusive? So how would that be as part of the package? 

 

One last thing, someone mentioned about renting a cabana by the pool for $10 a day, when would you set that up?

 

 

Thanks everyone!

Not sure about the ipod. I know many brides say the MC is worth the cost, just to keep things going and structured. 

 

Yeah I think it is funny that for cocktail hour, welcome cocktails etc that they charge you for food and drink. But it is nice in the tangerine package you get international bar (which is not all inclusive at the resort) and it covers the personal servers you will have.

 

I am assuming you would do the cabana daily. If you are worried about making sure you have one you could ask Susana or talk to the host when you check in about it. 

 

 

 

Glad that someone brought this up.  We as a group have very talented friends/family who are photographers/videographers coming as guests and we too wondered if it would be ok to just use them instead of Tropical Pictures. It isn't worth the cost if someone could do it for us for free :) I was really worried about the possible "outside vendor fees". Let me know ladies if after speaking with the coordinator if you had any extra costs by doing it this way.

Thanks natalieblev for the price list and information about the spa. NettyD, I think the reason why we are allowed to marry on the Friday is because we will already be married and are just doing a symbolic ceremony. I was originally given a time of 11 am on the Saturday but the time did not work for me. After a number of emails with Marlene and my TA, she agreed to move the ceremony to Friday at 4pm. Are you having a Catholic ceremony?

Hi Candacey

 

 We won't be having a Catholic ceremony... but would really like it to be a legal ceremony if at all possible. I couldn't keep it a secret if we got married legally before we got there! lol The idea of having to arrive a whole 6 days before the wedding (weekend days don't count and neither does the day we arrive is what my WC/TA told me) is crazy! I have already asked Marlene and still waiting on a response...go figure. Thank you for your help!

Hey there misskay!!! I may be jumping in here but thought id offer my 2 cents... R u in Canada/us? I'm in Canada and heard about the whole "marriage isn't legal in Mexico" thing lol. So my fiancé and I decided to go to a courthouse right before we leave for Mexico and get married... This way when we are standing at the alter, whether it be symbolic or civil ceremony, we will "officially" be married at that point!

Hi MrsShoretobe

 

I live In Canada right out side Toronto area.... I have also heard that about Mexico but have done some resaerch and as far as I know when going to DR it is leagal as long as you go trough your embassy and do all the translation requirements. DR recommends going through "wedo"  maybe other bride can give more insight to both of us and clear up all this..

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
