Hi All!!! Planning on traveling from April 13th - 20th 2013! And book my wedding.....Silvia told me that by now she only has 17th and 19th.....I want 17th for sure!!! First I wanted a Catholic Wedding, then when I found out all the paperwork, I am going on with the Symbolic option.....we want to exchange vows, does any know we can do that? 

Who will be there during that week?

Hi Maggie!  I was in the same boat as you about a year ago, trying to decide between Dreams and Now.  We almost went with Dreams Punta Cana, as we absolutely love their wedding gazebo area, but parts of the resort don't look as modern as we'd like.  We went back and forth but in the end decided to go with the newer more intimate resort.  
What are your pros/cons, or important factors? Are you leaning in one direction more than the other right now? If so, then you should probably just trust your gut! :)

We were thinking of Catholic also, but are going with Symbolic. It is very simple:

 

  • You say your wows and have ceremony just like the real one
  • Choose the person to marry you: your WC for free, a hotel pastor for 250$ or often recommended pastor Rick York for $350. Even if pastor marries you, it is still symbolic.
  • No one in the wedding party will be told it is symbolic. Only you can tell them that.
  • If you want, you can request a symbolic document signing during the ceremony. It holds no legal power :)
  • The ceremony is from 20 to 30 minutes.
  • you can find many youtube videos from the resort, will give you good idea of how things happen.

Hi all! Hoping to be married at now Larimar in may 2013.. I sated at the now sapphire in Mexico and loved! My fear is that the food service and cleanliness will not be the same since it is a different location. Can any now brides give feedback about their experience!? Thanks

Desperately looking for recent RECEPTION PICTURES. I really wanted the pool but my reception would have to end by 10 pm. At this point it's ballroom, beach or Carnival. Have any NOW BRIDES had their receptions there? Thanks :) My wedding is in January.

    • 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?
