I think they're the standard ones you get if you sign-up for the Divine package. You get the chair covers, table and gazebo decor all in white. You wind up paying for the colors you add to it. But the covers are only included, as far as I understand from reading the package list, if you have the Divine package. Without I think it's $15 per chair or something mad like that.

Canadian Love - I am getting married March 31st at Secrets (which is just right next door)!  We will be there at the same time.  I am arriving on the 28th.

 

What are you guys doing about photographers?  I naively thought I was just going to use the one in the package (we are doing the most expensive package so I thought surely that would be fine) but it appears most people use outisde vendors.

 

What is everyone doing?

Hi Kevol,

To be honest, I haven't really started planning anything yet! I have just decided that I am going to deal with everything on Claribel's schedule, because I tried reaching her a few months ago to no avail. It was really stressing me out, and kind of defeats the purpose of doing a destination wedding, since we are trying to keep everything calm and relaxed! I've heard from many people on here that Claribel contacts you 2-3 months before the date, so I think I am just going to hope that this is the case, and if not, will just deal with everything once we get there. We are choosing the best package also, and have heard that the photographer is great, so I'm going to have faith! I am an interior designer and am very detail oriented, but have decided on this one (scarily enough) to just let things happen when they need to happen and not stress. I'm trying to just enjoy being engaged :) Who is your wedding coordinator, is it Claribel also? Have you been in touch with her yet? Congrats on your engagement, and let's try and talk often!
Denise

As part of the divine package, you get a photographer and 25 pictures. That seems like way too little and though I've asked, I've yet to get the web address or see his work. So I (and many of the other brides) hire an outside photographer. It helps to assure yourself that you'll have pictures you'll love! The some of the options are:

 

http://www.hdcphoto.com/

http://www.photosouvenirpuntacana.com/

http://www.katyanovablog.com/

http://www.juliaeskin.com/#/galleries/

http://www.caribbeanemotions.com/

 

The package use to give you a DJ too; for two hours but not anymore. Instead you get a choice of violin or sax - I think (cannot find the document that says this now) for a half hour during the ceremony. But everyone who does an outside one seems to use Mannia.

Hey ladies, it's been such a long time since I've posted anything here... just thought this would be worth sharing :)

 

I've been in contact with DJMannia and was able to confirm that they have a working relationship with Now Larimar and both parties confirmed that it would only cost $150 to bring DJMannia --- not the crazy $500 outside vendor fee that the WC started to throw around. Also with the photographer, HDC confirmed with me that all I would need to pay is the day pass which I think would be around $150. I'm waiting on Now to confirm this as well but Arnaud (HDC) was confident about the fee and said that if Claribel gives me a different price he would contact her personally :)

 

So make sure you work the details out with any outside vendor you decide to bring in, maybe they already have some sort of understanding with the resort. Like Pastor York doesn't require any day pass at just about every resort in punta cana...

 

Hope this helps! Happy planning ladies!

Thanks for this! I remember being told it was $150 too but then couldn't really find where I had seen that (I think it was on the first extra pricing list). I've also booked DJ Mannia and Blue Lagoon photographers plus Pastor Rick to do the ceremony. I'll email Christina (who is now answering my emails rather than Claribel) to get a firm answer.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
