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

Recommended Posts

Vav no you don't have to use him, I think you just have to pay a vendor fee which if it's the same as the other resorts it's $75 or something close to that.


TJ when is your wedding again?? Your sis profile looks awesome

I don't think you have to use their photographer, but if you choose a package that includes a photographer that is who they use.  It makes it difficult, I still can't figure out how to breakdown everything down a la carte without choosing a package?? I think they do that purposely..... by the time you add up most of the important factors ceremony, florals, hair, food, drinks etc....., I think It works out to be close to the same???

If someone gets more answer on that please let me know( I still want premium liquor & food too! & DJ )..... I just bought a calling card today and I'm going to give claribel a call a soon as I have a free chance.

Moniwoni, those are great earrings!  I have been looking at similar stuff on Etsy as well.


Quick question... what does OOT bags mean?  I know what they are just not the exact acronym LOL. 


I am looking forward to getting more of the details done and complete so that I can relax a little bit!! I have a friend flying in this weekend to try on bridesmaid dresses.  Cannot wait to have this chore complete!!

Just wanted to share with you the price I figured if you I used the Moments package then adding on what I want and also the Eternity plus the add-ons.


Things you need to consider for this pricing is that I added:

Based on 2012 Pricing

Based on a 50 people(guest) count

No decorations (flowers and center pieces) because I plan to bring all those over and DIY

Pastor York $350

Gazebo (with white fabric) $350

Caribbean Trio $300

Platinum Cocktail and Dinner

Open Bar (International) --- wasn't really sure if ths would be included in the purchase of the Platinum cocktail and dinner $18 pp per hour???? So this was a pretty ridiculous amount @ $450/hr so I'm hoping I'm wrong on this for 50 people it would be $2,250 for 5 hours! yikes... I have a feeling it's included though if you purchase the platinum package.

DJ $1500

Photographer $2000


Moments Package:

$10,105.50 plus taxes if Open Bar is not paid for $7,855.50 plus taxes



$ 11,356.50 + taxes (if less open bar= $9,106.5 +taxes)



$ 8,736.5 + taxes (if less open bar= $7,3865.5 +taxes)


So I think if you want  the Platinum package for the cocktail and dinner it actually saves you money to just go with the Divine since you only pay for the additional guests ass opposed to paying the per person rate. Ofcourse if you have a smaller group it wouldn't be as much as what I figured or maybe it would be about the same as the Divine so why not just get the extra photg for a session on your welcome dinner or something. I'm sure they would be ok with that.


Hope this helped! :)

Oh I got the Divine Numbers wrong! HA! I forgot to add the Photgrapher... Those are my numbers since I'm using the resort's photog for now... and the the less bar thing has an extra 5! OMG. just scratch that!!




$10,736.5 + taxes (less open bar =  $8486.5) if paying $2000 for photog


$8,753.5 +taxes (less open bar = $6,486.5) if not hiring extra photog.

Don't know if any of this info pertains to you ladies but WC from NOW Larimar answered a few of my questions and figured they may help some of you (the answers are in blue):



1) Can you please send pictures of the options for the reception? I'm trying to decide whether or not I'll have hanging lanterns at the reception. Lanterms look great at a reception party and it is possible if you choose the beach area by the Castaways Restaurant. Pictures attached.

2) I'd like to have a bonfire to welcome my guests - is that allowed somewhere on the NOW Larimar - preferably the beach?Bonfires are not allowed at our beach, but at the contact info from kukua Restaurant it is possible, so please ask them. Info below


3) I'm thinking of having an event at the Jellyfish restaurant. Do you have a contact person there or can you send me info and I will contact them on my own? We have a contac person there and also at www.kukuarestaurantpuntacana.com (They didn't send me the Jellyfish contact, if someone has it please pass it on. Big thanks!)

4) During the reception I was hoping to have a floating lantern (also known as sky lanterns) event, is that allowed? (I have found ones that will leave nothing behind because the paper is biodegradable and no metal is put into the frame.) it could be possible but if you want that is to do the flating even by the pool area and it would need to be a buffet dinner because it is outdoor.


I'm not sure what the 'flating even by the pool' means but there you have it. The pics she sent for reception options are below. I'm bummed because I really wanted a reception by a pool, which they don't do. Still haven't decided where I want it. Hmmm...

Thanks sooo much for sharing these pictures! It's good to see some of their reception set-ups. I think there is a thread on here about the jellyfish restaurant, if you just do the search you'd probably find the contact number... Also I think you might have to clarify with her the floating lanterns that you meant. I think she's thinking floating in the pool as in water. Like lanterns on pods you put in the pool not the flying ones... But I thought you can have a reception by the pool though, you would just have to do a buffet for it.


Thanks again for sharing!

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
