Question for those who have reserved their wedding date online--On the site it asks for number of single and double rooms, is this a definate number you need to put down, its a little too early for me to write for SURE the number of rooms needed. HELP!

I would air on the side of caution and slighly increase the number(s) of those you would expect to come. I say this as it would be better to downsize an area needed versus trying to find a bigger area (all on MP side of course).  So if you think you would have 30 people I would put 45.

 

Hope this helps.

I didn't put a number down yet. I want to wait to get our STDs out so I can get an idea of how many are considering coming. I checked "yes" then left it blank! I hope we can get enough so we can get the unlimited private events!

 

Do any of you know whether or not you can still be eligible to get the unlimited events/free nights if you use a TA to book your rooms?

 

But yes all MP brides, as soon as you decide on MP, BOOK you day! They go fast as well as time slots. I knew 4 pm was what I wanted, so I sent the reservation request, then my FI called the next morning. They said we were good to go on the date and time we wanted.

 

I would do both...JUST in case!

I faxed my reservation form on Monday evening and I started to get worried because I didn't hear anything from them yet and all of you guys were getting your dates confirmed! So, I e-mailed Pilar in the Miami offices again and asked her if she got the form I sent and when I should expect to know about my date. First she e-mailed me back saying that she had not received anything from me yet! I was having a heart attack thinking "Oh no! Now I won't get my date because they didn't get the form!!!" Then she sent me an e-mail saying that they had received the form and it was just "pending authorization from the minister." Is that what they said to you guys? Or did they say you for sure have your date? I'm still a little nervous...Crossing my fingers tho!

Don't be nervous....This is what Janice and Lauren (cause I had to be sure) said to me. Once the minister confirms that "he is available" then they will send the contract.

I agree!! However; have some comfort because if you go back on the reservation website and enter your info as if you are booking, you will see that the time that you requested on your date is blocked off so that no one else can reserve it.  I'm calling tomorrow though ;-)

Hey Coco! Which TA are you using, and how did you decide on them? You and I are both Philly girls, we should definitely get together and swap some DIY ideas as out dates get closer!!

    • 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?
