Atlantis bride question

Recommended Posts

Hello All!  I am getting married at the Cloisters/Atlantis on February 15, 2013.  I am so happy to have come across this forum! We just got back from our site visit a couple of weeks ago which had its ups and downs.  Our coordinator at the Atlantis, Faycita, is extremely disorganized and extremely frustrating to work with.  Does anyone have a coordinator with whom they are having a good experience??? We are doing a plated dinner and our tasting was mediocre.  The Nassau grouper was, however, phenomenal. I'm curious to know what kind of experiences others had?


Has anyone come across any good tips for negotiating room rates or are they pretty strict in this regard?


We are using Cacique for florals and design.  Shawn and his team have been my saving grace.  He is so professional and knowledgeable and very timely with his corresponce, which is extremely important to me.  If anyone still needs floral/design, contact them immediately!! They are wonderful.


Also, has anyone found a good videographer?? I got a quote from Troy Aitken for around $4500 which seems a little outrageous. 


Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  And please let me know of any useful tips/tricks you all have come up with (especially with regards to cutting costs!)


Thanks and congratulations to you all on your engagements/weddings!

HI guys sorry for the slow response I've been very busy.  So, I went to Atlantis in July and practically nailed down all the details during my visit.  My planner is Faycita and so far she's been great. I hate to hear you are having problems hreddy84 as it is a bit stressful planning destination weddings. 


I choose the following:

We are doing a plated dinner and we are selecting the filet and crab crusted sea bass.

Shared Love Package

Island Preacha for Ceremony

Tim Aylen photos (considering video)

Ocean Overlook ceremony

Fathoms reception

Wildflowers for decor- They are phenomenal and know this space like the back of their hand


Still trying to finalize little details like hair and schedule but the bulk is done.


How many guests are people expecting?  I'm thinking around 30 for me.

Hi! I am heading down to Atlantis in a few weeks to plan our wedding. We are looking for the beginning of September 2013. What kind of info/suggestions can you give me. What can I do before I get down there and what should I do and who should I meet with while I'm there? Any info you can give me will be helpful! Thanks!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
