@@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.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
