Who was your on site coordinator?  I was told my onsite coordinator will not be the same one as my tasting because she's getting married the same week. So everything we discussed better be written down :(

 

 

My onsite coordinator was Ana.  She brought me through the tasting.  But I did also meet Myrna and I thought they were both very helpful.  I think it's hard for them to be "hands on" via email because they have so many weddings to work on at the resort, and think of how many weddings are scheduled that people probably contact them.  I would just send them emails confirming everything you talked about.  Don't worry about the small number.  It will be more intimate.  =)

OOOh man everyone is stressing out.  I hope everythings smoothes itself over for you and all the brides to be. I can't help but have anxiety since my wedding is a month away. AHHHHHHh

Paradisus keeps randomly charging my fiance's credit card without telling him.  These people are ridiculous. If I could turn back time I would have picked a different resort. Just being honest.

Can you tell I'm frustrated.

 

I think they have schedules that they charge.  At least in my contract it has dates when they automatically charge your card on file.

Thank you KK2013.

I need to book a massage stat.  My wedding is a month away and I feel like they don't have any notes on what we spoke about because I just got a questionaire from Jessica from Miami office asking the same darn things: color of flowers, decor, where is your reception location, date, time ceremony location.

COME ON Paradisus, step it up. So redundant.

Yea, I think they make you fill out that planning form regardless of what you've talked about so that they have everything in one place. Take a deep breath, and definitely schedule that massage =)

Ok ladies, Little update! I have received my final extras invoice from Jessica in Miami and she has introduced me via email to the onsite wedding coordinators. I already had personally sought out their contact information and am feeling a little bit better about things!! I too received another sheet to fill out with all wedding details - AGAIN but I was told it is to charge the extras as that goes through a different department? I haven't had anything be charged to my card that I did not authorize - so hopefully that doesn't change!! Imnotarunner - don't worry about having a small number of people! We originally thought there were be more guests for ours but we are having 33 guests. I am at least thankful that they will let us have a private dinner reception in Hadar - I was at a destination wedding in the Dominican at the Magestic Colonial and they had FIVE weddings in the same day and then there were 2 wedding parties at the one restaurant PLUS regular hotel guests. I promise to give a very long and detailed review of everything about our wedding - and hopefully pictures too!!!! I can't believe we are leaving so soon! Lets just cross our fingers and hope everything turns out! At the end of the day we're there with closest family and friends to celebrate the love we have for our hubby's!!!

Thank you Ladybugg for comforting words. I can't wait to hear about your wedding.

I had my planning call w/Jessica yesterday, she's very sweet and it was a little comforting but I'm still nervous because my walk through notes were no where to be found.  She's going through her old emails now.

Do you know who your onsite coordinator is?  She said we won't know ours till closer to the date/after final invoice. We are only 30 days out, it feels like nothing is prepared sigh...We too are having it at Hadar. 

I am so excited for you , marriage is a great thing so if this wedding thing doesn't pan out I still know I am a lucky girl marrying a very lucky boy lol ..as are you!

What are you doing for an after party?  I was told 11pm is cut off, so I'm hoping there's something for my guests to do afterwards.  I didn't recall seeing a club on site. Only lounge and bars.

I like the sparklers ideas. Are you bringing your own? Is that allowed on plane?  How much are they ? Thanks!!

I am ttempted to bring OFF rings and citronella candles for the ceremony so my guests won't be eaten alive by the mangroves at the gabi bridge. what do you think? over the board?

I looked into it - re: sparklers ..... Actually my fiancée laughed at me hahaha they are most definitely NOT allowed on the plane - carry on or checked - they are put in the same kind of class as explosive material I think - something about them rubbing together they could spark/ignite - hahahahaha I guess I can understand the concern!!!! I'm going to be asking out photographer if he would be able to buy some and bring them since he is from Playa and the resort charges something ridiculous I bet!

    • 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?
