Hey Ladies,

 

I'm planning on having my wedding at NOW in november and I'm getting a little anxious, because I havent heard anything from them, after my request. How long did it take until someone got back to you and how long did it take for things to get finalized. I'm afraid everything will be booked up.

 

Thank you guys.

@suzzMF. what email did you use to request info?claribeal and cristina are the wedding coordinatora, you should probably hear from them in 1week...they can be slow with reply, but usually not from the begining...i would just resent the email and put in the subject New bride weddding package request or something like this

Thank you @Skygirl, I think i need to start working on my patience, cause I have none. I actually got an email back this morning from Mercy in the wedding department, she send me all the info I need and docs i need to fill out. So I'm hoping I get my date confirmed. I'm excited.

@suzzMF. Yes, work on your patience.And if you have any questions ask us here in this forum. Also if you are writing an email with questions to WC. try not to write an essay, just remember english is their second language. Bullet poitexactly what you need to be answered. Also i never heard of Mercy..they probably hired another WC, due to the reason they couldnt get back on time to everyone. Happy Planning

I've a question...I know that if you are  getting married (for real) in DR you need to get your documents translated. But what if you're doing a vow renewal? We've just gotten hitched to prevent the whole translation thing and now I need to know, do I have to get our marriage license translated? Or is it understandable in any language? 

 

I sent an email to the WC but figure the forum may be quicker.

are you having a symbolic wedding or renewing your vows? I am having a symbolic wedding, getting married in April and that I know you do not need to show any documentations.

hey ladies,

 

i was wondering how long did it take to get the confirmation on your date and if someone could maybe provide me with an email address of someone at the resort they're been in contact with.

 

Thank you so much.

So not to make you all panic but Claribel is no longer working for the Now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just posted a message on the other Now Larimar forum with some other details but I talked to my TA today and she said that is the reason why Claribel isn't responding! I can't decide if it is a blessing in disguise because she was terrible at responding or if everything I have done so far has been lost in translation. Make sure to doublecheck with Cristina on all of your important details. She didn't know I had pastor york confirmed and booked so that makes me nervous but nothing I can do at this point. She also didn't know where I was having all my events. So hopefully it is all available and it was just a little shaky without her this last few weeks but she will get on top of everything. So if I were you I would contact Cristina and just confirm services and locations. My wedding is in 3 weeks!! AAAHhhhh!!!!!! I am so not prepared!!!! Ha!

    • Economics as a career is highly rewarding in the current environment. We need economists to study agriculture in an increasingly changing global weather patterns, decode financial implications of economic plans as well as help the government formulates administrative policies. Economics Honours graduates are in high demand in almost every Fortune 500 company as well for top government jobs. The options with this degree are endless.   If you are among those thousands of students looking for a career as an Economics Honours graduate but have no idea how - don’t worry. We have got you covered! Read on to know all about one of India’s most preferred courses and what are the career options after economics honours (some really fancy ones!) that open up for you with an Economics Honours degree.
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far?
