Just an FYI if any of you ladies (or gentlemen ) were assigned to Yakayra Fulgencio?? I just received an email stating that she is no longer working the property and i have been assigned a new coordinator!

Did you hire the DJ for your poolside reception? How did you timeline go...did you do the dances before eating or after? 

Thanks!

We did not hire a DJ, we just rented the iPod equipment and they actually provide a DJ to run that. I did however have a guest who did the emceeing for us. He announced our bridal party and then we went right into our first dance. Then had dinner, dessert then did cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Did any past brides use professional wedding decorators (like Caribbean Celebrations)? I've read reviews about them and it's been said that their services are cheaper than the resorts. Would Now charge an outrageous fee for them to come and decorate? I'd love anyone's opinion on this!

and honestly, with a destination wedding less is so much better, you are in such a beautiful place that provides natural decor, I didnt feel the need to have a lot of other decorations.

    FYI ladies... I just received an email from Francina stating that Yakayra is no longer with Now Larimar. Just wanted to give you a heads up. Seems to be an awful lot of turn over at the resort. - Rose

    Hello Future & Past Brides!

     

    I made a point to tediously go through this whole forum before I posted anything! When I first started reading I had way different questions then I do now.

     

    I will be getting married April 15th 2015!  I tried to make it as affordable as possible for friends & family. Now they have lots of time to save & I have lots of time to plan!

     

    Any one else planning this far in advance??

     

    Any recommendations for STD's going out?? Because I already made the reservations and guests are already putting deposits down, I'm thinking of sending them out this November with travel info.Once again, super far in advance but invitations wont go out until later next year.

     

    Will post more later! So many questions! I had no idea when booking that April/May were SO BUSY for weddings.

    Did any of you use WBA for your wedding photos?

    If so, how did you like them??

     

     

    Under vendor reviews, they have great reviews....but its concerning that the reviews were posted over the span of a week...

    Hello Lovely Ladies,

     

    I have two years to go:( But, I wanted to start early to avoid stress and financial burden. How soon is too soon to send STD's?
