Hi Ladies,

 

I'm seriously considering this locaton for my desination wedding, however, I'm wondering if anyone can verify how much it costs for a wedding there?  When a good time to go there is? And how extreme the costs would be for my guests.

 

Thanks for all your help.

 

Anxious.

I got emailed a few attachments from my TA and my WC is Roxi.  So exciting!  I was told that my actual packet would go to my TA first and then he was mail them to me.  Thank you to all for all the fabulous suggestions and reviews.  Made this such an easy decision.

I would love to know from anyone who has gotten married in T&C or has lived there before, is there any way to do a very low key wedding on a remote part of the island. Like, not in front of the big hotels but away further on the beach? Nothing fancy, just dress, bouquet, officiant and family?

 

Also, what was your general budget and did you stick to it? :) Thanks!

We paid our deposit plus travel insurance and my ta told me I needed to pay the $400 government fees.  For some reason I thought they would have been included in the basic package.  I guess I assumed wrong.  Are there any other fees that I am missing that are not the add ons?

 

Also, I received my email attachments from my ta via my wc.  I realized that the prices for the themes are very different.  We were debating the seaside serenade, but it's still a lot of money. The beaches site states that it's an additional $2500 while my attachment states that's $3200.  I need to email my wc and inquire about that. 

 

Lastly, do we tip the officiant?

 

Thanks and happy planning!

I know alot of the fees and stuff have changed from when I booked last year. So be careful when reading through here for past brides and what they paid. I freaked out when I got the new fees because they are much different than last years.

Yeah I just got confused about the fess.  For some reason thought the gov't fee was included in the free basic wedding with the 6 days.  The only extra stuff will be what we want to do for the actual wedding/reception. 

 

I was finally looking over the sales kit from my ta and the prices are higher than Beaches website.  I know there has been multiple issues with prices, but it's frustrating.  I emailed my ta asking about it, so I wait and see what he says. 

 

I am so thankful for this site and all the wonderful information.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
