There was 37 people at our reception, the drink service was awesome...very fast...they would make you anything and also had bottles of champagne...and ALOT was drank :)  There were 2 bartenders and 3 waiters for the dinner and they stuck around for the dance.  I think we left sometime just after 10ish.  We had our own music - iPod - for the dinner and then the DJ for the dance and he was AWESOME!!!  I am just working on my review and hope to have it up soon!!!  If you have anymore question just ask!!!

Oh wow sounds like you had the time of your life!! I think we will most likely end up with 30-40 guests but it is hard to say at this point. I think we will most likely bring an ipod and choose our own music. What DJ did you have? How long did you have him for? Was he a DJ at the resort? Or did you have to get a resort pass for him? Which package did you go with? What were you dinner choices? Sorry for the question overload I have many.. Can't wait to read your review! Thanks for your help!!

We had an amazing time!!!  We had a DJ from the resort.  That is the one detail I never really asked Pilar though was which one.  I am assuming DJ Dorremix as that is what most other people have had.  Regardless he was great.  We had him for 2 hours, our guests tried to pay him more to keep going but he would only play one more song as he is $350 an hour and my guests weren't going to pay him very much...hahaha...even the waiters and bartenders were yelling at him to keep playing...hahaha.  We had the Devine Package, for dinner we had the caprese salad, Ricotta cheese and Spinach Raviolis soup, our 2 mains were Chicken stuffed with Spinach and Mushrooms and Beef Fillet & Shrimp and our desert was chocolate souffle with Baileys.  The whole meal was amazing!!!  I don't mind answering any questions...if I can help take a load off the wedding planners with helping answering questions it is the least I can do for them :)

Everything was VERY good.  The chocolate souffle was AMAZING.  With the entrees there were a couple carrots and a little bit of potatoes with it and the beef fillet I think also had some carrots and potatoes as well.  I was full after eating the whole meal :)

Did you rent a sound system while you plaid your music from your Ipod? If so what sounds system did you go with? I understand there is one for $150 and another for $300. If anyone else has rented to sound equipment were you please with it? Any recommendations?

Thanks!

The DJ just used his sounds system to play our music for the Dinner and we never had to pay anything extra for it!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
