    Hi Ladies,

     

    I'm having a symbolic ceremony/vows renewal and looking into Program Cards.  Any ideas of what should be included?

     

    FYI: Living Social has deals for VistaPrint :-)

      You look absolutely stunning! Congratulations!  

       

      How long did you meet with your WC?  

       

      Do you know if they allow children in Club Premium rooms?

       

      Did you bring any decor for your cake and cake table?  Or did the hotel provide the cake holder, etc?

       

      Thanks in advance for your help.

        Mis Jalli I was told the sound system was $250 however take that with a grain of salt because that was in January and I am sure it has changed as I have not reconfirmed that with her yet:  Please be informed that the sound system has a additional cost $250usd  ( Subject to availability).

         

        Soloparat: Honey that international DJ fee of $488 was last year now the prices is $708 and if you want the MC its $1300. I bang my head on the wall every time I talk to this chick because she changes prices on me like she changes her panties or at least I would hope she changes them that often LOL =) I did however confirm with her yesterday the following prices: the bridesmaid bouquets are still $30, the second dinner option of fish/steak is $16, the first 24 people are free if we did a rehersal dinner then anyone after that is $20pp and you MUST have it in a banquet hall with a fixed menu. Once your group is bigger than 24 they wont allow you to do it in a restaurant, any people over your alloted per person package is $50, ie: Tangerine package allowed 35 ppl, anyone after that is $50 each. Um cocktail hour is still $12 pp and for the additional hour for the recption its $15 per person and either $236 for basic DJ or $434 for the DJ/MC.

         

        Nykat: LMK what she says about the kids prices and possibly childrens food instead of what the adults are eating. Natalia was told kids are full price and Bjean was told they are 1/2 so lets see what she tells you. We are also doing a symbolic wedding and I am waiting to hear back from Susana to see if they have something scripted or if I should provide that. Just seemed easier in terms of paperwork to do the JOP here first but we want all of our guests to get the indication we are getting married for the first time there.

          Guess I need to make a list of things I need to ask her for when I meet with her. Has anyone ever just brought their own sound system like an Ihome or something? I would assume an Ihome would be fine for the pier but what do I know?

            Miss Jalli thats what I plan on doing. As long as its battery operated/charged you should be good. I mean we dont need to be able to entertain the whole beach right? LOL. I think that sound/volume should suffice.

             

            I would def have a list of questions for her but your weding isnt until March of next year so I am sure the prices will go up again before then.

              Trivera, are you using the Ihome with a mic? I don't understand, if i don't ask for the sound system, exactly how will Susana perform the ceremony anyway?? Is she going to be yelling so my family can hear her?? LOL

                LOL..from what I understand they have a mic and speaker system for the ceremony that they use but they charge US to use it if we want to play music on it for the ceremony.  Which is pretty lame and just another way to extort money from us. The system is there anyway you would think they would just allow us to use it? IDK its on my list of questions to ask her but since I made it to #1 on her shit list she takes a week to return my emails.

                  It's fine let them use whatever system they want, i'm bringing an ihome cued with the 2 songs I need. It's absolutely fine, I don't need a microphone and I don't need them to screw it up trying to cue the thing.

As I'm finishing up the selections for extras I noticed that their online quotes for extras are super inaccurate to what they are quoting us through email...for example: online the bridesmaid bouquets are still $30 and the international basic DJ for the reception is still $488! I was thinking of going with a live tipico band for the reception as my fiance is also dominican & i think it would be cool to include part of the heritage but they only cover two 45 minute sessions :( all these price changes are driving me crazy as I see from the previous posts you ladies can relate. I'm really glad I found this blog and am able to connect with everyone and find out so much info that I wouldn't have been able to find on my own! Susana told me that I could choose my own cake design but when I showed her what I wanted she says only white is included :/ can anyone confirm this is true because I've seen photos with colored ornaments or flowers. I'm also debating whether to do the couples massage included in the tangerine sunset package before or after the wedding...anyone have any suggestions to when it worked for you best? 

                     

                    soloparatijc so my cake was both white and green, and it had color orchids and it was included. I had the massage before because I was leaving on my honeymoon the next day, the lady at the spa said we were the only couple who did it before LOL
