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

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!  I am new to this site and am loving it already.  My wedding date is August 6, 2013 and I feel so far behind.  I still do not know what package to go with.  I am having 36 guests and don't want to short them, but want to make it as inexpensive as possible.  Also, I am going with the resort photographer...have any of you worked with them?  Can't wait to hear all the suggestions!

Thank you all so much!
-Erika

Hi everyone! I'm new to the site so I hope I'm not double posting:) my wedding is August 6, 2013 and I feel so far behind! I'm hoping this site puts me at ease! I am still unsure what package to go with as I have 36 people going. I want my guests to have an awesome tine but don't want to spend a fortune. Any suggestions? I'm also going with the resort photographer...has anyone else?:) thank you all so much!

OMG! Wow! I arrive the day of your wedding! Our wedding is Friday 8/9 and we have about the same amount of people coming as you do! We are going with the middle package but we are still undecided on the sit down dinner or the buffet. We are having one outside vendor, HDC Photography, but everything else through the resort. I am bringing my own centerpieces to save $. Are you doing welcome bags? What do you still have on your to do list. I felt like I was really ahead, but as the time is quickly approaching I feel like I am so far behind!!! Let me know if you have any ?s!!

Omg wow! That is so ironic...glad we have eachother! What all are you doing for the reception...dj...dance floor...etc? I just don't know what to do:) I am doing welcome bags...so far I have koozies, flip flop manicure sets, and door hangers. I need to keep adding! What about you? Also what all are you going to bring for decorations? Thank you sooooo much!!

Thank you sooooo much!!

 

Yay!!! So glad I found someone at the same resort and that's day is so close to ours! Are you from the states? I live in PA. As for the reception we are doing the resort sound system, but hopefully will have saved enough for the DJ by wedding time. If not I think just an iPod will be ok for the reception since only 3 hrs, but we are doing a pool reception so we didn't need the dance floor. Our welcome bags have mugs, flip flop playing cards, packets of meds, key and tip money holders, and chapstick. I think thats it!! I will get pics up as soon as i start putting them together. Oh yea door hangers too, although I am having issues trying to figure them out on vistaprint! As far as decorations, so far I have ordered organza table overlays and organza sashes, and I am still trying to decide on the centerpieces. I also have starfish bottle openers as our favors. We are doing a starfish theme and colors are coral and white/cream. I am now in the midst if making our monogram shell cake topper, and still want to make the dress hangers using the tutorial I found on here. Ughhhh so much to do!!!! But I am soooooo excited!! Do you have your dress? How many are in your wedding party?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
