I was wondering if any past brides can help me out with something.  I've spent quite a bit of time on the Now Jade thread reading all of the posts (thought it would be helpful as the resorts are sister properties).  I know that at the Jade, included with the divine package the gazebo is decorated with flower medallions.  I am curious if this is the same with the Sapphire.  In the divine package for the Sapphire, the brochure says "Canopy décor - chairs with white covers, ceremonial table and carpeted walkway".  Does anyone know if that includes any kind of flowers, or is it just the white material?  If it's included I would like to use the flowers from the gazebo as centerpieces after the ceremony.  I am sorry if this was asked previously.

 

Thanks,

 

Dina

Hi Dina,

The Canopy is plain. Anything you want on there is extra unless you bring it. I found all my stuff online for much cheaper.

i suggest you do it yourself ( get someone else to do it for you in your group) if you are on a budget

My FIL went nuts with the invitations to his friends (without asking us for our permission!, and my fiance and I are the ones paying for our wedding!). Argh! Could any of you share with me the budget sheet for the Divine package? I promise not to tell Ramon or Anel I got it from you! Please please? 

 

Thanks!

Ways to save on this  I had 48 guests so i understand where you ladies are coming from.

You have dessert included in your dinner, so i left the cake at 25 slices. they served the cake while people were dancing at my ceremony i did not even get to have a slice at mine. Its $7 a person extra trust me you dont need to pay for any more than what is included in your package. Also what they don"t tell you and i found this sneaky was that they serve champange to ALL guests during dinner! PLEASE DONT PAY FOR EXTRA CHAMPANGE!! we had them hand out the 25 glasses after our ceremony. You have an open bar (which you are paying for) not one person complained. Chairs, you will have to pay for the white covers but they do move the chairs from the ceremony to the reception. Bring as much as your own stuff as possible to save some money.

hope this helps

Hi Noxx,

 

Thanks so much for that information.  I am pretty disappointed that the canopy is completely plain.  I would have thought that they would have at least added some white material to it like I have seen in nearly every other wedding. :(

 

Your review was great.  I am so glad to hear such amazing things about the resort.  Congratulations on your wedding!  I would love to see pictures!

    • 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?
