If you book 25 rooms, or 75 room nights, you will get unlimited private functions. This is what I had. I had a free cocktail hour, reception, welcome party, bridal brunch. The free functions include all food and drink, and we did a sit down dinner for our reception; appetizer, salad, dinner, dessert, cake. You can have as many private functions as you like if you book the 25 rooms or 75 nights. Just be sure to book the events in advance, as it is a small resort, and if they are having any other functions the same time as your wedding, you will not have many options on event space.

I am planning on using the complementary package because I don't like the look of the CC packages.  What have other people here done for their reception and how much did it cost?  Should I just try and find one of the CC packages that fit best with my wedding?

One thing I did find out from one of the travel coordinators is that, if you use the Complementary package, you can't use your resort credit for a la carte items or for upgrades...you pay for those out of pocket. If you want to use $1500 in credits, it all has to go to one package. Now, I will also say this...I've heard from lots of people that the travel coordinators say one thing, and then on site it's a different deal. So we'll see.

Questions to some of the brides....

What was the rule for your hair/makeup vendors? I know my photog has to be a guest of the hotel, so he'll be staying overnight. But is it the same deal w/hair and makeup artists? I found someone for $180 for hair/makeup....but I don't want to spend another $150 for her to have to stay at the hotel. I guess I could use the salon...but for whatever reason I'm leery of that. I'm curious what everyone else did.

That was what we were told, and it listed it online in some credit options.  So we went with a package instead of doing complimentary since it would have been more expensive for us to pay for each individual item we wanted to add.

I don't think they would need to stay the night.  I would just get a day pass for them.  We used the resort for our hair (all of my bridesmaids looked great, but mine was terrible and fell out within an hour!), and we did our own make-up.

    • 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?
