      Thanks Jennifer8913,


      Those prices are a lot clearer than the pdf Mercy referred me to....


      the pdf states 400 for the sound system but you have 350... so confusing. I am having all prices confirmed before I get there to avoid any surprise costs :-)

      I emailed Mercy again to get a more details, see what prices she give me .

            Getting married next May, and looking EVERYWHERE for wedding pictures so I can see what it looks like. I've seen a few on pinterest and on their website but I would like to see someone's actual wedding pictures :)

              Hello! I am also getting married at the end of Jan 2013. I have some difficulty getting in touch with the WC francina, sometimes but I have received some info back. I have been in touch with the photographers and seen some professional photos on facebook if anyone would like that information. It is quite stressful planning a wedding from Canada :)

                I was hoping one of you could help, I am getting married Jan. 8th at the Now Larimar and still haven't heard back from someone as to who the photographer is and how to extend the length of time for photos...

                Has anyone used the hotel's photographer included in the Divine package, if so how did it turn out?

                Also... did anyone do a welcome package or box full of goodies for their guests, did you bring your own stuff from home or wait till you got there to pick local stuff?

                    I posted this on other thread, but just in case: 


                    Here are some bits and pieces I got from Mercy, the WC at NOW



                    Wedding Ceremony


                    1. do we have a choice of who will mary us? 

                    The symbolic ceremony is performed by the wedding coordinator. If you would like to bring your our minister, it is fine, it is allowed for non-legal ceremonies. In case that you want to have a non-legal minister through us, the cost is US$250.00.

                    1. How long will symbolic ceremony last? Whats involved? 

                    Symbolic or Non-denominational: Approximately 20 minutes. The speech of this ceremony is focused in love, marriage, family and society. This kind of ceremony does not have any legal validation, so the wedding couple does not need to make any paperwork. This ceremony is an option for the couples that want to get married in a court of their country, and have the celebration in our tropical paradise.

                    1. Do we sign wedding papers even if it is symbolic ceremony? (we would like to symbolically) 

                    For symbolic ceremonies we prepare a certificate of the hotel, without any legal connotation, to be signed during the ceremony. When the couple bring their own minister, we prepare that only if is requested.

                    1. Will it be announced the ceremony is symbolic to the guests? 

                    No, we never say that. The guests will know that only if you tell them.

                    1. We do not want the beach. What are our location choices ?

                    By now we have the fountain gazebo available on your wedding day (first come, first served).



                    1. name of our photographer and what will be included in our divine package Divine wedding package includes 24 pictures during the ceremony, and 30 minutes of video during the ceremony.
                    2. Can we meet photographer prior? Sure!!! email? Please see this information below:

                    PHOTOGRAPHER SERVICES

                    Divine package

                    1. can we choose not to have some features and change with others? Items and services included in the wedding packages are not changeable, transferable, or negotiable.
                    2. What is not included that people add most often? Decoration (centerpieces, charger plates, candles, etc.) DJ services, and entertainment.  



                    1. What are our decoration options?  Divine Wedding Packages include, for the ceremony 25 chairs with white covers, and a ceremonial table with white linen. For dinner/receptions, we include tables with white linen, and chairs with white covers, according to the size of the group.
                    2. Can we see some pictures? Please find a picture attached.
                    3. Location selection- can we see pictures of what is available and choose now? Please find some pictures attached.
                    4. We want the party to go on longer, how late can we go? Any charges for that? Depending on the location it can be until midnight. The reception included in the wedding package is for 3 hours. The cost to extend the reception is US$12 per person/hour + taxes (with the international bar), and US$18 per person/hour + taxes (premium bar).
                    5. Is music included? The wedding package includes a sound system during the ceremony. In case you want to have music during the cocktail hour and the reception, please see our offers above. Do you recommend DJ? Sure!!


                    Activities at the hotel

                    1. Is there a list of all entertainment planned for the week of November 23 to 30?

                    Every week our entertainment department makes a program with the different activities to be performed on that week. Unfortunately, we cannot send you an schedule for December, because the activities can change.  Also, every day we send the Sundial (activities program for the next day) to all the rooms, in order that they can program their time.

                    1. Does hotel recommend entertainers for party such as fire dancers? Yes!!


                    Room upgrade in the package

                    1. can we secure the complimentary upgrade now? We reserved the Ocean View King Deluxe preferred club room. 

                    Divine wedding package includes an upgrade for the wedding couple, to the immediate superior category, to be confirmed upon the couple’s arrival, based on our availability. In case that you have booked the highest category of our Deluxe rooms, the upgrade will be to the benefits of the preferred club service, but no a Master suite.

                    1. We would really like a suite, ocean front. It is our dream wedding and honeymoon as well. I have copied your request to our Reservation and Reception departments in order to follow up your request, and do our best to help you.


                    Rehearsal Dinner

                    1. Can we secure restaurant space for dinners for whole group? We dont want to be paying extra, since its an all inclusive resort, but we do want to make sure we get the space and have no long wait. 

                    We can reserve a space in one of our open restaurants a la carte (upon availability), for groups up to 25 people. The reservation must be done during the wedding interview, subject to our availability. In case that you have more than 25 people for your rehearsal dinner, we can offer you a reservation in our Carnival International Caf© (buffet style restaurant).


                    In both cases, the set up will be individual tables, for up to 8 people each one, and the time of the reservation must be at 6:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m.


                    Excursions offered to purchase

                    1. could we get a list of excursions offered? We would like to include these in our wedding website For this information please feel free to contactstgops@amstardmc.com   


                    Additional ideas and suggestions from the coordinator is very valuable to us. 


                    More details on divine package are appreciated. 



                    Would we be able to set up a Skype appointment to communicate and go over the main details? Unfortunately we do not have this tool available by now. We’ll be in touch by this way.
