@@Sabes44 I'm sorry! Of course you wouldn't. I meant to mention @@upstatekj about that song. That wouldn't work for you.

 

I love the photo booth idea too! If I decide to pull it off I'll send pics of how it worked.

ha ha no worries, I do really like that song though!!  The songs are the one thing that we have not been able to easily decide on.  We have plenty of time so I am not worried and maybe I can break him down with the song I want :)

Has anyone thought about using (or already used) the guitar player for their ceremony? I was thinking the whole playlist/ipod/timing situation with music during the ceremony would make me nervous, so hiring the guitar player might be a nice alternative. Plus, I was thinking s/he could play quietly in the background during the entire ceremony, as opposed to just walking in and out. Any thoughts?...

Oh that is a nice idea! We have added so many extras already I don't know if I can add anything else. That would be so pretty though.

I agree, it would be really pretty.  I love live music, but for me not sure the costs are worth it.  But if you have it in your budget, I say do it!

The price is definitely a little steep for a 45min set. I have plenty of time to think about it, but I do like the idea.

 

In other news, we signed our contract with Juan Navarro (photographer) today! I'm really happy about that. :)

Congrats on that!!  How is his pricing?  Unfortunately my photographer (also a guest) is pregnant and will have a 5 month old and won't be able to make the trip now.  But she will still photograph our legal ceremony here with just my FI and I!

I think his pricing is really reasonable, relatively speaking. I checked out a bunch of photogs and some started at $4k+. We are paying about $2100 for six hours of coverage with Juan and his assistant and then we will get a disc with all the edited photos (and copyrights so we can print them ourselves). We'll also be adding an album, which is $200 or $300, depending on which size you want, but that's optional. You do not get any prints (not counting adding an album).

 

One of the things I did when looking at resort options was search for professional photos of other weddings at the resort to see how I liked everything. I first came across his photos then and then revisited when we were more seriously shopping for a photographer. He's also gotten lots of great reviews.

That is really good pricing!  I am still trying to figure that part out.  Since we have our legal "wedding" being professionally photographed and a professional photographer as a guest at the wedding.  I reduce the amount spent on the professional wedding photography.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
