Ceremony- 6pm

Cocktail Hour- 7pm

Reception- 8pm-11pm (I dont think 8 is too late for dinner)

 

I am doing the complimentary package! THis is what i rented from Zuinga

 

Ceremony- SKy Terrace

-sashes for inside isle of chairs

(i didnt want to spend alot on the ceremony- its so beautiful as is and you are only there for 20min)

 

Reception- South or North Terrace (i forget which one- my cocktail hour is on one side and the reception on the other)

We are doing one long table. Using the resort table cloths and napkins (white) this is free

The following is from Zuinga

-Ghost Chairs

-Table runner

-Glass Plate chargers

-Centerpieces (square low vase with flowers & votives (fake ones - it can get windy) This was expensive ($580 for my centerpieces for only ONE table! granted its a long table 35 people)  They origianlly quoted me $900 ouch. If you can bring your own i say do it! But i think they will charge you a setup fee per table

-Candles for around pool (fake again- in case windy)

-Pinata and pinata stick

 

I am renting from JSAV, the ipod setup including 2 speakers and someone to run the ipod as well as some extra lighting (they say  it gets dark on the south/north terrace)  Is anyone else renting extra lighting? As well as a gobo to project our monogram on the wall.

 

I am having a welcome cocktail the day we arrive (we are from Canada so staying a week) so this would be 3 nights before the wedding

I think the cocktail hour on the wedding day is a good way to keep the guests busy while you are doing photos. But totally up to you

 

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks Kristie!!

 

Totally helps my fiance does not seem to understand why I am overthinking all of this! I am gonna do the cocktail hour :)

 

I was wondering about extra lighting. I guess I better ask about that!

 

Someone from JSAV is running the ipod setup? How much was that? I was doing the ipod setup partially for money saving but partially because we are kinda particular about music and very country loving people and want to have everything played we wanted!

 

I am gonna bring some things for my centerpieces and hope for the best, I was quoted some ridicuous price as you were. Thanks!

To have someone run the ipod is $40 a hour (not a bad gig for them... lol) So we paid $160 for the evening.

I think it is important to have someone turn up and down the music or on and off during speeches, etc.

Hi Kristie, thanks for the reply.  When you get home from your wedding can you pop back on here and post a review of things that worked and what didnt.  That would be the most helpful thing ever since we are getting married at the same time of the year.  Hope all your planning is going well!!

Do you know if you are you allowed to use your group booking rewards towards a free reception if you get the complimentary package? It just seems too good to be true...

Yes you can!! I had 40 guests- 99 room nights and I got the complimentary package.  I paid a total of $230 (cost of ipod tech/hookup) for my wedding ceremony/ reception (not counting the decorations I brought with me).  I got the complimentary wedding package, cocktail hour and wedding reception for free!!! When you bring in 40 people to their resort for 99 room nights- they should comp you for all the money the resort is getting paid!!! :)

I emailed her recently to check in on everything and make sure there is nothing elae she needs from me, and no one has responded :-( just wondering if anyone else has been having this problem? Anyone have an email for Zuniga besides Lily's email? Thx!

    • 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?
