Shipping Items to DR for the wedding

Recommended Posts

Is anyone shipping items to your resort for the wedding? I'm trying to debate if it would be cheaper to get all of my decorations here or go with the ones at the resort. Thanks!

I think that I'm going to bring mine with me. I've read quite a few posts and it seems like most people have been bringing their decorations with them because it ends up being cheaper. I think that most airlines allow passengers to have two luggage per person so I'll probably ask some of my guests if they mind taking an extra bag if they only have one.

I hear the issue with shipping your decorations to the D.R. is they often get stopped at customs.  From there they sometimes do or DO NOT get to their final destination.   If you do get your stuff from customs, there is a good chance not all of it will be there.  It's well know that things often go missing on the trip to your wedding resort!

 

I am bringing mine down with me.  I have secured some family members to help!  Also, you'll have to claim your stuff at customs (and pay).  If you don't and you happen to get stopped they will take it all from you because it's unclaimed.

 

 

It's sort of a pain in the butt... but it would stink if you paid all this money for things and then customs takes them - - Well, I guess we'll all figure it out

Everything fit in my luggage - we were charged extra as we were overweight luggage wise but it that was it.

If you are concerned about having to claim anything, make sure you bring all your receipts to prove that everything was purchased in the country where you live

    • 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?
