Ive gone down a couple times already and have brought an extra suitcase ea time filled with decor items and left it there - with friends and family.

Who are your options for photography? And where is your ceremony? Just watch how fast time flies. Before you know it you'll be like me and have days until your wedding. I'm going to be in panic mode next week probably. Can't believe it's finally almost here.

i've narrowed it down between Dwayne Watkins and Dean Clarke. Both have similar styles which i'm looking for so we're going to decide by this weekend which one. I really like them both! we're also staying at Secrets Wild Orchid but having the ceremony and reception next door at Seawind Beach Club (it's on the same property but seawind is more flexible with what you can have). i've been making stuff myself already, i'll post a thread closer to the end after i have everything done! this site has been a blessing cuz i would have never thought of half of these ideas lol and we will do the same before the wedding. go a few times and bring suitcases to leave down there. we have family there so that's a plus.

That's perfect...being able to bring stuff down has been a lifesaver. 

With regards to my photography, I was just like you...I was going back and forth between Dwayne and Dean also. Dwayne's stuff looks amazing to me. Dean has a similar look and is much cheaper for the same package. I found it helpful to bite the bullet and call ea photograper and have a discussion with them to see who I vibed with best. They'll be with you all day so if they don't have a personality that clicks with yours, you will be screwed. Lol.

Yes that def helped! I called both and they were both friendly with a good personality! It was def tough but we decided to go with Dwayne. I'm glad I got that out the way. The crowd we have and our personalities def requires a Photgrapher that will show all that in the pics lol I'm glad you're almost set! Can't wait to see your pics! Who did you decide on? I can't remember if you said who already, my bad lol

Hi ladies, i have question regarding documents. if we choose to do all the legal stuff here in US before we go down there (i mean go to the courthouse) do you know if we are still required to do all the legal documents in Jamaica?

I don't think you would need the legal documents for Jamaica if you are just having a cymbolic ceremony rather than a legal one. We got legally married in Jamaica and it was a breeze since the officient handled everything. You just need your passports :)

    • 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.
