        @amybscn, so true they really dont disclose all this extra charge info untill you ask. But who would even think that the dj cost doesnt come with the cost of the equipment set up.  maybe after all its better to hire an outside dj, at the end it will be the same $. I know DJ mannia is $1000-$1200. and thats for 4hrs and includes set up...and  for me this can work out better, because i can have more control as far as communication prior the wedding..

          Hey Sommer and Amy, our wedding is the 16th and we'll be there from the 12-19!  

          Val, I'd love to see that list! I had no idea all the extras involved!!

            Hopefully you'll all be able to open this file up since it's a pdf and check out the pricing. Figured it be easier than sending to you all one at a time.

            But if it doesn't work, let me know.

              Hey girls, 

              I heard from Christina yesterday and she said they are working on a way for the hotel to come up with an alternative for the walkway over the fountain.  They understand how costly it is and they want to make it more accesable.  She doesn't know what yet but they are working on something.  Apparently the real reason for the expense is the insurance risk with it.  Who knew?!

                Hey Ladies,

                 

                We are putting together our webinar schedule for BDW.  These webinars are great because not only can you get YOUR questions answered but also hear answers to questions from other brides that you may not have even though of :)

                 

                Webinars are a great way to not only hear directly from the wedding department but see the wedding packages that they offer, ceremony/reception pics, etc.

                 

                I try to only limit the webinars to once every 2 weeks so we of course can not do all resorts.

                 

                Please vote on which resorts you would like to have webinars on...you can choose more than 1.

                  Hello Ladies!

                   

                  I'm new to this forum. Trying to narrow it down between Dreams La Romana, and NOW Larimar.

                  Are there any 2013 brides out there?

                   

                  Can anyone tell me either 2013 or even 2012 pricing for guests? I'm trying to get an idea of what guests might be paying from Ontario and Alberta, Canada for a 7 night stay with airfare. We are hoping to have our wedding late March or early April 2013.

                   

                  Thanks, and congrats to all of you on your upcoming (or past) weddings!!


                  Can't wait to marry my best friend on April 11, 2013!

                  49 Guests booked, and counting...

                    Hi Dominican Ally

                     

                    Congratulations!!!! 

                     

                    Punta Cana is gorgeous, i was there a few years ago, about 3 years, and I loved it. I loved it so much that I change my wedding location from Puerto Plata to Punta Cana. I never been to La Romana but I have heard wonderful things. I am not sure if you been to DR but if you haven't my suggestion is to go to both Dreams and Now. Even though I been to Punta Cana I didn't stay in Now or its sister properties. Is hard to decide on a place you never even seen. 

                     

                    If you go to the hotel website you can get a rough estimate on the room rates.

                     

                    I don't know about the flight because I am in NY. However I did notice with your dates that it might fall on holy week/Easter Sunday. Flight might be expensive. I think Easter falls on March 31, 2013

                     

                    Sorry for the long post, hope I was helpful.

                     

                    Take care

                    Mayrose
