"New Resort Opening May 1 2011" NOW LARIMAR ~ PUNTA CANA

Recommended Posts

@ AcutieRN... Thank you! I just want to get as much done as possible so that I won't have that much stress piled on me the closer I get to my wedding date. I'm in search for some ivory ballet slippers for my daughters and I to wear as we walk down the ceremonial aisle on the beach, any suggestions? Would someone tell me what are OOT bags... I've assummed, they are gift bags for guests but I wanna know exactly what they are.

Hello ladies!

So, I must admit... I guess I was a bit naive.  I thought in booking a destination wedding that all would be taken care of and as far as planning on my end there was no such of a need.  I am getting married Oct 6th this year at 3pm in the afternoon at Now Larimar, after reading this I have learned I am WAY off in my thinking.  Any advice from brides that have already had their wedding and/or is upcoming?  I have spoken with Christina a few times, just like everyone else I have not heard from her since paying the deposit.  HELP!

Any assistance, suggestions, pictures, etc. would be GREAT!!! 

Thanks!!! :)

Hi Lmb28!
You definitely CAN just show up and let the resort take care of it all, but if you are at all picky about certain details then you'll probably want to get involved in the process :)

Sarahgn4t, your wedding was GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I was sold on having a beach wedding and have now reconsidered relocating to the fountain!  Quick question, who is the designer of your bridesmaid dresses?  They were fabulous!

 

THANKS!!! :)

I have a question for the brides.  Because Destination Weddings are much more cheaper (Or so we think)... What was everyone's budget going in in planning a destination wedding?  Have you seen that you will be spending more or less?  I'm getting married in July and have a set budget, but afraid that I may go over with the many specific details I want.

@Vizionme101 I've always wanted to have a destination wedding because I thought it was less hassle, stress, and least expensive...so far I'm wrong! It is very stressful bc you aren't actually there making decisions, everything is being planned via email or phone and not to mention the increase in price for the decor and other extras are outrageous. I do know that I'm spending more than I thought I would but I figure I'm still doing better than I would if I were having a traditional wedding at home. Honestly its all in what you make it. You don't have that much longer! Are you exited???

I couldn't have agreed with you more @Prettyfinebrown.  It has definitely become very stressful.  But from previous brides, they have assured, once you arrive, everything will fall into place. (Fingers crossed)

 

Yes - I'm very excited. Waiting for the day to come and go so I can be stressed free.  Like a lot of the brides, I'm also DIY... The prices the resort has for some of the things are outrageous. ($5 for a napkin).  They must be crazy.  It helps that I'm a travel agent and knows the ins and outs... My suitcases will definitely be filled to the brim of my own things that I'm bringing...

@Vizionme101 Who did you choose for your photographer/videogtrapher/dj? My fiance and I both will have our carry on bags filled with decor, I'm also going to put some things in my seven year old daughters bag just incase I need more space. I just purchased my bridesmaids coral calla lillies yesterday, they are so pretty! They are made from latex...looks real! I have to cut the stem a little and add some pretty ribbon. I'll post the end result once I get them done. I'm thinking I'm gonna do the flower girl baskets for my daughters..may even get them to help me!

@Prettyfinebrown - I haven't decided on the photographer/videographer or DJ as of yet.  I'm trying to bring my own from home.  Or I may just go with the one's they recommend.  I don't want to pay an extra $150 fee per vendor just for bringing them on property. I don't think it's worth it.  Especially since I'm coming back home to do a huge reception for our families that are unable to attend. As of now, I have 45 people that will be in attendence.  My cousin is a Party Planner / designer so she will be helping me with a lot of things.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
