@@Johnsonspartyof2 This is where the exciting part of your wedding planning begins! Once you've settled on the date and booking it! I remember being nervous about sending my credit card information via email.  And I asked for a fax # but I think I was very anxious to book the date I ended up scanning front and back of my credit card and just emailing everything to get it over and done with.  Anel emailed me back that they had received everything and that they will process the payment.  I didn't have any problems with my card.

@@Johnsonspartyof2 No problems with sending all the info via email, including credit card and my ID. I was more anxious/nervous about securing the date because I wanted to move forward with my room booking as there was a special promo going on at the time and it was the very last day of it.  It all worked out just fine.

Thank you both very much for that, I feel better now.

So i was thinking i wanted to bring my own string lights as the resort quotes 650 for the Italian lights. Does anyone have experience of bringing their own lights?

Did you make your paper products (STD's, Invitations, Programs, Etc)? Also if you did what printer did you use? I am pretty sure I have to purchase a new one for these projects. I've been researching printers all day. I am sure I will dream of printers tonight  :lol:

Hey guys! I am new to this thread and getting married at Now Sapphire on August 3rd. Just finalized all the details! Would love to join in on the planning :) I stalked this whole thread and have been researching this resort for months. I visited the resort this past August along with Dreams and preferred this one! I am doing a beach ceremony and having my reception on the tequila terrace. We are looking to have 40-60 guests. So excited!

Oh cool, the resort is beautiful I fell in love with it when we checked it out! I am a little nervous about the wedding planning though, I just hope that I can bring enough of my own stuff to decorate and get all of the extras I want without it being too expensive...

 

We had our engagement photos done this past August while we were vacationing at the new breathless resort, adventures photos did them for us and I think they turned out great! Most likely I will just use them for the photos that are included in our divine package I'm curious as to what the video includes..

Just finished my 48 hour marathon on reading this thread.  Thanks to all past, present, and future brides for all your contributions.  Getting married on Feb 3, 2017 at Sapphire with Juan Carlo as WC.  With 60 people attending we are in a crunch with identifying what is important to us vs. how much we want to spend (and yikes, the costs add up quickly).  Sad we could not get the Tequila Terrance and will be having our reception at the Preferred Pool.  However, some of the reviews of the Preferred Pool are encouraging. 

 

Pending Decisions:

1) Timeline - trying to find a balance to not having the guests wait too long between the ceremony and cocktail hour so we can do pictures (Putting our trust in the Resort Photographer that they will get some decent shots.)

  - Question:  does any past Bride have any recommended photo shoot locations? 

2) Food:  Sit-down platted meal vs. Buffet?  (we have over 50 ppl so buffet is an option)

3) Music:  Bring our own (Pro: saves cost  Con: someone has to man it)  vs DJ  (Pro: convenience  Con: Costs)

4) Table Size:  I'm thinking round vs rectangle (we have 60 ppl attending)

5)  Table decor:  we are going bear bones and not bring lots of decoration, but a big white table with white napkins just might be too dull.  Do I need a center piece?

 

I'm sure i'll be posting more as the time gets closer.  I am starting to get a bit stressed about this.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
