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

Recommended Posts

I think the DJ mannia service is $800 for 2012 plus $300 for 2pp vendor fees :S although the service is for 4hrs & incl an MC. Has anyone read the fine print about the receptions being only 3hrs long now? and dinner starting at 6pm instead of 6:30? when I booked we had clarification that dinner was at 6:30 & we could use our banquet rooom til 10:30 before having to pay extra......this nickel & diming is really starting to drive me crazy! I'm going to email Cristina & get to the bottom of all this

Hello ladies.... I've already become acquainted with Skygrl... We are both actually getting married on the same day October 8, 2012 and I must say I never expected planning a dedtination wedding would be so stressful. My FI and I have chosen to have our legal ceremony on the beach and our reception at the poolside. I've purchased a few of the items for the reception table centerpieces and I'm going to get my BM's bouquet and GM boutineer made at home with silk flowers. I want to do as much diy projects as I can to cut down cost because the resorts's pricing is way too expensive!!! My WC Sylvia is truly awesome, her response time is outstanding. She had actually called new a few times just to make sure we are on the same page. I am however compiling all of our conversations via email into a folder that I will print out maybe a day or two before our trip to ensure that there is no miscommunication anywhere. My TA did advise us early on that we would have to be on the island three days prior to our wedding and that the weekend doesn't count so we scheduled our flight accordingly. I've sent the salon pictures of how how I would like my hair and they assured me that they would be able to give new the desired style. My level of excitement is starting to kick in!!! I still have alot more decor to order in hopes to have it all done by August so that I can relax a few months before my big day. Congrats to all of you and if you would like to email me feel free tiamsavage@gmail.com

Welcome!  Sounds like you are getting much more response already than most of us have in the last year!  That is great. Sounds like you are way ahead of the game.  Congrats and happy planning.


I am wondering if any of the April brides may be able to help me. I know several of us are going to be there at the same time. I arrive Saturday night the 14th and we are being married Tuesday the 17th.  I ordered my chair sashes months ago and they came in, no problem.  I opened the packages to iron them today and upon closer inspection, they are totally different colors!  They are supposed to be sage green, 10 are sage and 10 are neon lime green. I bought from Ebay and seller no longer carries them.  Ahhhh!  I refuse to pay the resort $3 per sash.  My question is does any of you have sage/light green chair sashes I could buy from you after you are done?  I know it is a long shot, but just thought I would try.  I leave in two weeks and all the others I am seeing on ebay would ship too late.


Thanks girls!

Ladies, wanted your opinion about something. Im doing Divine package, and Christina said i could choose from the premium bouqet flowers. I was going to order reall touch flowers bouqet, and try to match resort flowers to it a bit. Do you think resort bouqet is 10''?i was thinking to give it to the one of the bridesmaid?unless they can make 2 small ones from it?i have 4girls, and 2 boys. I just dont want for it to missmatch completely...?

    • 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
