2013 Melia Caribe Tropical Brides

Recommended Posts

I know I just posted yesterday about photography, but now I'm thinking about music. Does anyone know anything about the DJ that the resort uses? I don't know if I need to hire someone on my own or if they include someone (like with the photographer). And does anyone think that it's worth the extra money to get an MC? I'm not even sure what an MC would do other than introduce us and the bridal party. Thanks for any suggestions!

Debating on whether or not to use the onsite wedding photographers, you don't get much for what you pay for and I am unsure about the quality.  Anyone have pics they can share or advise on this? 


Also wondering about the hair and make up job they do at the salon! 


Hi Krystrahan, do you mind emailing me his info. I have been working with someone else and it takes for ever to get a reply thanks. I have the same amount of guests can you tell me about how much you ended up paying for the Fairy Tale package. Thank you in advance and good luck. You can private message me if you you like.

I am getting married on july 2013, but I have no idea what package should I choose. I have about 25 guests and I was thinking on the Tile but I am not sure. I do not want to spend to much money. I am also looking for some information about the photographers. thanks

The resort photographer's email is weddingmeliado@arrecifestudio.com. They've responded to my emails within a few days. They have a bunch of different print and digital packages as well as video. Their websites are: www.arrecifestudio.com and http://www.facebook.com/ArrecifePhotoStudioMelia

  I found a few other photographers, but I thought Arrecife was the best. One was HDC, website: www.hdcphoto.com. The other was Photo Souvenir but I don't have a website for them.    I hope this helps! Good luck on choosing your wedding package. We are going with the Fairytale Tropical and we're upgrading to the premium package.

Hello Ladies


I wanted to pass along a couple of facebook sites that are very helpful for planning:


This is information from ladies that were already brides at the resort which I found the information helpful.

"Melia Caribe Tropical Brides!!!" 


This is a site on facebook of pictures of specifically wedding set ups for venues, flowers and cakes.  Also very helpful if you can't do a site visit :)

"Romance: Our Weddings and events"


Happy Planning!

    • 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?
