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

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies! This is the very crazed and stressed Valerie here. I'm currently in the final throws of packing because our flight from the UK is TOMORROW MORNING!!!! Yup, everything is in the cases but I'm still printing out room stuff, double checking I haven't forgotten anything, triple checking really. 

 

Everyone on here please pray for Sarah and me that the weather will be beautiful!!! I've been seeing that they actually seem to saying rain. And that is unheard of for this time frame. I will not be happy if there's nothing but rain. Which is now my only worry - rain! 

 

Other than that, it's all said and done. Just wait to hear my lengthy review once back. 

 

CHEERS!!!!!

I was shopping for photographers and looked into HDC.  If you want my opinion (as a professional, accredited photographer) even though I haven't looked into many others from the DR, he's a local guy his work is great & prices are amazing.

The best part is, about mid way through you really get a good idea of what the fountain ceremony area looks like.  What I noticed is that the wooden walkway does not go the entire length of the fountain (Like I assumed).  Just thought I'd share.

 

(I'm cross posting this with the other thread just in case there are more of us here.)

hey everyone,

 

good luck to all the brides with upcoming weddings at NOW, if you could please give us a review after you're back and post some pictures, I would really appreciate it. My wedding isnt until November, but I want to be as prepared as I can, so I dont stress myself out days before the actual big day.

 

Hope everyone is doing good.

Hey ladies I finally got my wedding planner worksheet, though I would share with you... It's set for a divine wedding package... I'm sure you can just change the numbers according to your needs. Hope this helps!

Hey girls,

I have not been on here in forever.  I have been planning as much as I can and think I have almost everything ready to go.  I am frustrated beyond belief (nothing new as many of you who have been here a long time know) at the lack of response from anyone at this resort.  I had no idea Claribel was gone and have not heard from one person from the resort in over 5 months. I have sent numerous emails, at least weekly, asking for information regarding what reception venues are available and examples of decor. My wedding is now 7 weeks away and nada.  I have a confirmation letter, but apparently when Claribel left she took that information with her. I had my TA get on things and she sent 13, yes count them, 13 emails to Christina and the resort before she got a response.  She even went as far as to phone the GM of the resort. The response was that the time I had booked was no longer available on my date.  I finally said that is it, I want out. I can't take anymore.  Magically as soon as I said that they said they could accomodate my date but had to push my time back an hour . That in itself is annoying because one of the reasons I picked this resort is that at the time they were promising only 1 wedding a day so things didn't get overbooked.  Apparently that is no longer the case. I was then told that I would hear from someone shortly to start making plans.  Guess what, nothing!!!!! That was a couple of weeks ago.

 

JB,

I am shocked that you are getting responses, we are in the same week!  What is going on?

At any rate, would you mind sending me that file you posted here?  I still can't open attachments. Its alechner0355@hotmail.com.

Thanks so much, hopefully that will help me a bit.

 

I can't wait to hear how the girl's weddings went this last couple weeks.  I hope others are not having as many problems as me!  Good luck!

OMG Amy, thats horrible, what do you mean they are having you change the date?that is not right. Contact Juana at the concierge department, she is on FB, and she will help you with hopefully getting a hold of someone. I actually am starting to get nervouse my self. I booked Oct 8, and have confirmation letter from Claribel. But when i checked the calendar online, it said partially avaialable,which is fine. But i requested the 4.30 ceremony. I have since emailed Christina a week ago, to dowble check, ang got nothing. Im sure she is super busy and trying to take care of the mess that Claribel left. Im actually going to call them Monday...because the airline schedule will be posted tomorrow and i know ppl will start booking, so i want to be 100%.and yeah Acutie, i dont think they are doing 1 wedding/day. I think its more like 2/day

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
