I got the bags at Target in the $1 aisle.  I also, got a couple hot pink ones, but the black is better for the couples/guys.  The t-shirts were from Vistaprint.  I just put the t-shirt together and waited for them to go on super sale.  I also got my brochures that I am going to mail a month beforehand for free, as well as my first aid stickers for free.  Love vistaprint!!!

Cups are a GREAT idea at an all Inclusive resort! Especially if you give a good tip at the beginning they will remember your cup! I am giving my bags ahead of time. We got everyone a 34 oz Bubba Cup (looking into engraving each guests initials) which is insulated and was amazing when my FI and I were in Punta Cana last year. Then my friend works for a leather company and we are getting leather luggage tags made. That's it for my gifts :) I may add some candles and bubble bath in my VIP bags ;)

Great! That is a good point that they will remember the cups! Where did you get the bubba cups from and how much did they cost?

My dad actually ordered them (we all have them already they are awesoem! They keep drinks cold at the beach, the 34 oz fit in a cup holder and the handel has a bottle opener on it. If we cant engrave them for a reasonable price we wont put anything on them. I want people to want to use them forever, so we are not putting our names on their gifts.

This may be the website. They were about 8 bucks each he said. To travel with them, we just stick socks or tioletries in them to save space. Its worth it!

It really is pathetic how useless Palace Resorts is, I sure hope our wedding works better than the planning! Here was my original question:

Does anyone know if there are certain room types only available at one or the other sides of the resort, or certain bed configurations at one or the other? Specifically, I am curious about the "Deluxe Resort View", the cheapest option (with king or 2 beds), and the Superior Deluxe Ocean View rooms. We blocked the Ocean View rooms but I want to know if someone choosing the Resort View rooms will be forced to be far away from us or can still be in the same section of the resort.
You guys gave me the following useful answers:
We originally had ocean view and deluxe rooms in our room block as well.  According to my TA you can still be in the same section (e.g. Sunrise, etc...) but there is no guarantee that any of the rooms will be close to one another.  I am sure your TA can request that the rooms be close to one another, but be prepared to possibly be in separate buildings in your section.  If I had to take a guess, the resort view could be in a totally different building than the ocean view rooms.  But I think as long as you guys are in the same section, it shouldn't matter too much!
I believe Sunrise is the only section with double beds available.
I also emailed the resort through the website, here was their answer:
Sir reservations weddings department is in charge of make the reservations, but the rooms assignment is in the font desk at the moment of your check in, you can request the front desk staff that you want your rooms together, and however is subject to availability, but they do their best to accommodate you and your group together.
Soooooo helpful.

Congrats on getting them done, I'm almost done with mine. Where did you find the Aloe I can't seem to find them?

So, I finally have all the contents of my OOT bags.  I still need to make the tags, print off the welcome letter and get small bags for the contents, but I just wanted to show everyone what I am putting in there.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
