Im getting married there in May and we have 85 guests. I'm a little worried about our numbers. Has anyone else with that many guests had their wedding yet?


Does anyone know the wedding coordinator named Minel?

I was visiting this hotel last week and decided not to get married there,(the ones tha already booked here dont feel so worried caise is a nice place but not what I was looking for) The reasons: 1- price for a private reception 1000$ for a small part of the restaurant Il capriccio ( max 50 people) more than this you have to do it in the barbacue ( public place with others) 2- restaurants: if you stay in bavaro or punta cana in 7 nights you can only choose 3 days to dinner at special restaurants (mexican, italian, etc) the other days you eat at the buffet with the rest of the guests of the hotel 3- transportation, the hotel ia too big, so you have to use different small trains to get to your rpmm, or the lobby or the beach but this is a complete mess, the drivers dont know the hotel so they can be ridding around like 30 min sometimes 4- outside vendors: my case is specific about the photographer I have to pay for 500$ extras to bring a photographer from outside ( i didint liked arrecife at all because of the excess of photoshop they use in their pics) 5- beach gazebo be careful with the ceremony time, cause is in the middle of the beach and you have thousands of curious people like naked making a none perfect backgruond to your pics (i think 5pm would be the perfect time 6- night shows are amazing! Change every day! Dont miss those 7- the rooms of the bavaro and punta cana are very bad! ( i was at Hard Rock Punta cana the week before and it was perfect!) but the rooms of esmeralda are very good, clean and new. 8 the service and the workers of the hotel are very poorly prepared ( again cpmparing with hard rock) 9- an extra 750$ fee for the civil or religious ceremony. Ok this is the resume! Feel free to ask any other detail!

Thanks for the info about the wedding judge. I wasn't aware of that. Im getting married there in May 2013 and Ive been contacting the WC lately she she never mentioned it. Did you book the photographer? I'm in the fence about it. I'm not sure if it's worth the extra money. Since we do have people in our family that ar very good with cameras.

    • 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?
