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


Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!

Vav and Sarah, congrats! I have been waiting for your reviews for what seems like ages!  You both gave such great advice and it was really helpful. Vav you looked gorgeous and it looked like all of your planning paid off. Sarah, can't wait to see some pics when you get back. Your calming words were good to hear as I am now 6 weeks away and still don't have a wedding coordinator, ha ha!  The one kink I have run into is with pastor York.  After Claribel left, my reserved date and time was not recorded.  I did have my confirmation from her, so they were able to get close to my orginal time.  Vav, after reading what you said about Pastor York being so tight between weddings, I realized that "close" to my orginal time may  not be good enough.  I was right! He is booked at another resort the same time they have my new start time. Oh well.  They will just have to change it back, I have my happy little confirmation letter in hand to make a fuss if needed.  Although it sounds like they are pretty laid back once you get there, so hopefully it will be no problem at all.

 

You both anwered a lot of my questions, but do you know about the flower petal rules?  If I bring my own do they have to be real or can they be silk?  I really want a pretty dense rose petal walkway, but if they need to be freeze dried I need to be ordering them now and have not heard a response from the resort. 

 

Thanks again for all of the info girls! Congrats.

So ladies, i just got off the phone fwith Christina, btw her english is excellent. I had to find out from her if i would arive saturday and have wedding monday would give us enough time, even though i know its cutting it too close. But i was really hoping to catch a direct flight on sat. She told me Friday is the latest when i can arrive so she can meet with me saturday morning.

I also asked about the Castaways, since i was booking my wedding date when Claribel was around and when they were still offering this restaurant for the wedding. She kept pushing "Eclipse"for the reception...isnt it a night club?does anyone has pictures of any weddings beeing held there?i cant find any. I asked her to do her best and try to make it work for Castaways, but in the meanwhile i would like to see the pictures of eclipse...

Hi everyone -

 

I would agree Cristina's English is very good.  I actually met with her in December when I was down in Punta Cana and saw the whole resort.  The Eclipse is the night club but it looks really cool.  I am getting married at the Fountain and was told the Eclipse would be the rain back up.  To be honest the Eclipse Lounge kind of has a feel of like a LA roof top lounge.  It is above the resort so it is really private and there is a mini decorative pool around the lounge.  If anyone else has any questions about the resort please feel free to ask me. 

 

Skygirl it looks like we are planning a wedding around the same time.  I'm getting married Sat Oct. 6th

 

Does anyone know what the photography packages include and have the contact info for the photographer?  I notices on the wedding excel template there are about 5 different packages (silver, gold, royal, etc) which are an additional fee but I'm not sure what they all include.  Any assistance would be greatly helpful.

@kitvb. So excited to see another october bride, can i watch your wedding then?ill promise i will not be topless and no speedos, LOL

Yes, the different packages listed on the site come with different prices. the most expenive one comes with 24 photos, of course you can buy more for $$per pictures. You can for sure use them for the whole shabang, But myself and some other brides hiring an outside photographer. As far as the eclipse, is most of the place inside?i wonder how they do the set up for chairs?it does looks like more of the rooftop place...im not sure about it ...but i guess on the goood note, we wont have to move after the reception and just stay for the nightclub at 10.30

i was counting on for the fountain for the ceremony too. whats ur colors?

if you need a pdf file for the packages:email me at skincarebymarina@gmail.com

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
    • I am coming to cancun sept 4 2021 and I am interested in releasing butterfly's in remembrance of my recently deceased daughter. We are staying Riu palace costa mujeres. Is this something we can do
