I feel so crappy for him right now.

It took her about a day or two to get back, and just cc'ed my coordinator who actually hasn't emailed me at all. Bug I have her email so I will give her untilnext week and then start bugging her since next week is 3 months until the wedding :D Try emailing her again or email any of the new people who's emails have been posted. Someone is bound to reply. Just make sure you seem chill when you email them so they dont feel like they got a lot to do when they reply to your email.

I emailed her early yesterday and never got a response... did you email or call?  I swear it's like my emails to them are going into junk mail!  Arghh!

Oh wow, that's what I was afraid of.  This is exactly why I need to talk to my mythical WC.. whomever that may be.  I have now tried to contact 4 different people at MP, all without success.  Tomorrow im calling, and it's not gonna be a pleasant conversation.  Im past the point of being friendly with them.  censored.gif

Yes, that is true, not all locations are available every hour.  They do have only one wedding per hour.  I tried to book the Tucan Gazebo and was given the Bugamabilia one instead...I'm upset about it b/c I asked way in advance for that location and they kept waiting and waiting and finally when Joannis was ready to lock in the locations, she said it was gone.  So frustrating, since I had tried locking that in for months...

 

Anyway, I'm sure it will be pretty no matter where it is!

 

I still haven't been contacted by whoever my coordinator is yet...angry.gif

The way they do this is so half-assed and annoying. They apparently let some people lock in locations months ahead of time, but everyone else is told they have to wait. Then they also randomly assign locations. We were assigned Tucan Gazebo, we never actually booked it. We actually asked to be switched to Bugambilla Gazebo, because we were supposed to be on the sunrise side, but were told it wasn't available. Then they placed us at Nizuc, close to tucan, so it all worked out.

Thank you Bondgirl0072010,

 

I am starting to get a lot of information and planning items now from the MP so that is good, Now just have to make the final decisions. Does Del Sol also offer a video and streaming video package?

 

Thanks,

Hey Danielle,

 

So im getting married Nov 11, i ended up booking the Lavender Lux collection for the reception which im having on the Carribeno Terrace (rooftop). that includes decor for all the tables and flower centerpeices.

We also contacted Katie from Zuniga who provides additional decoration. We added on more candles to the tables, a dance floor, lights, flags with lighting and a few other things to add to the ambiance when the sun sets.

I believe we got the diamond package for the DJ and we will get a projector and screen to play pictures throughout the night. DJ also provides the speakers and the lighting system

Photography and Videography we are using smile market and Im hoping we get del sol for a TTD session closer to the wedding.

 

For the ceremony, we choose the complementary package and added hte horse and carrage, a special design canopy by Zuniga, and violin player for me walking down the isle.

 

Im bringing with me favors and stuff to hand out during the ceremony and reception.

 

Hope this helps.

I am getting married on Nov 1 and the mad dash is a little stressful to say the least. Has anyone else booked with the new Colin Cowie packages at MP?

 

I am trying to work, photos, video, flower changes, functions, etc. and info is hard to get.

 

How did you all find off-site vendors?

 

Thanks,

 

Danielle

    • 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.
